ROBERT L. (LEE) PUTMAN  Union Grove, Marshall County

He is 64 AR (actually TN) and his wife Epsie is 50 AL. Okay, the simple part is that he is a son of Jesse R. Putman and Amanda Cynthia Ann Posey from here in Jackson County Alabama. He was born in July 1875 in Franklin County Tennessee and will die in Princeton, Jackson County August 16, 1950. Now the confusing part. He was first married to Orpha in 1898 and they were in Tennessee in 1900. Something happened and in 1908 he married Clara or Clate and she and the kids were with his folks in Hambrick, Jackson County. Robert was off someplace. They are ‘missing’ again in 1920 and then are alive and well in Hambrick in 1930. She was 37 then. Now his ‘current’ wife might be her, but is 3 years too old with a much different name so I guess she is wife 3 or so. Good luck.

 

CECIL A. (ALFRED) & MARTHA PUTNAM  Bayou La Batre, Mobile County

He is 14 LA and a grandnephew of Horace and Arileeta Rabby from Alabama. His sister Martha is 12 LA and with them.

He was born in Hanover, Grey County Canada September 12, 1898 and says his folks were Robert Putnam and Margaret Pratt. His full name is Cecil Alfred Putnam. Problem is that Robert died back in Canada September 13, 1896 according to his gravestone. His mother Margaret married James Forsythe in Grey County, Ontario November 24, 1899. James was born in New York and Cecil always says his dad was born in Canada, but I’ll bet his mommy never told him who his actual daddy was. In 1900 the whole family was in Lockport, Will County Illinois and all were listed as Forsythe. In 1910 the whole family was in Mobile, Alabama and again everyone listed as Forsythes. In 1920 Cecil is in Camp Lee, Prince George County Virginia and is a Corporal in the Army. In 1920 the rest of the Forsythe family is still in Mobile, Alabama. Cecil went down to Alabama after getting out of the Army and married Edwina there in 1925, and then they came out here. Edwina is the daughter of Edwin Delchamps and Martha Arileete Tagert and was born in Alabama January 12, 1901 and died in Mobile, Alabama October 24, 1932. Something must have happened as he married Hannah Eve Croff September 15, 1932 in Pensacola, Mississippi. Hannah was a daughter of Benjamin Louis Croff and Hannah Elizabeth McKnight and was born July 3, 1904 in Juarez, Baja California Mexico. She will die in Higley, Maricopa County Arizona February 8, 1998. Cecil will die in Phoenix, Maricopa County February 3, 1973. Cecil and Hannah are in Graham County Arizona in 1935 and 1940.
