    • CALEB JARVIS TAYLOR TOLLE (Reuben Hampton5; Jonathan4; Roger3; Tobias2; Roger1)

      Caleb Jarvis Taylor Tolle, known often as C.J.T. Tolle, born about 1815, was the son of Sarah (Tarleton) Tolle and Reuben Hampton Tolle. The names Caleb and Jarvis have shown up in the records, but the Taylor is still speculation. He married Mary C. Wheeler on 16 Mar 1838 in Schuyler County, Illinois. On 22 Feb 1854, he purchased two pieces of land for a total of 120 acres at $1.25 per acre in Madison County, Illinois. He was listed on the 1840 census of Schuyler County as Calib J.T. Toole. C.J.T. Tolle was a Methodist Minister, and records indicate that he was in several counties over the years, Champaign County in 1847, Coles County in 1849, Moultrie County 1849-1850, and he was sent to Salem in Marion County in 1851-1852. Mary (Wheeler) Tolle died 19 Sep 1853 at Jamestown in Perry County, leaving four young children. He married again in Madison County on 16 Feb 1854 to Frances Deck. They had three more children before Frances died sometime between 1867-1874. He married for a third time to Mary Brown, and they added another four children to his family. C.J.T. moved around so much, it is no wonder that he hasn't been located on either the 1860 or the 1870 census, but he was on the 1880 census of New Douglas Township in Madison County. He made another land purchase on 11 Dec 1879, this time in Marion County, Illinois. It was for 42.49 acres at $6.00 per acre. He was mentioned in a biography of his son George W. Tolle, and his son Arthur A. Tolle. He spent over 15 years in the Methodist Ministry. He filled pulpits at Vernon, Champaign, Olney, Salem and other points in Illinois, and was also a builder and organizer of churches as circuit rider. During the Civil War he was a volunteer religious worker, preaching and performing other services in army camps. He was also a member of the Masonic Fraternity, and a Republican.
