He died and she married James August 1, 1861. They got divorced in 1869. I guess they said ďoh heck,Ē and remarried February 17, 1870. They are here through 1880, then he seems to have remarried as in 1900 he is in Latah County, Idaho with a wife named Ruba E. born in Canada.

GEORGE PUTMAN† Chebanse, Iroquois County
He is 33 IRE, Maria 43 IRE, Patrick 14 IL, Joseph 12 IL, Satchel 6 IL, and Hattie 4 IL. They werenít listed in 1860 in Illinois. Maybe the name is something other than Putman.
LORENZO PUTMAN† Chebanse, Iroquois County
Aha, thought they would get tricky here and index this guy as Alonzo, but best I can figure his name has always be Lorenzo. Heís Dutch. In 1850 he and Olive Northrup his wife were in Johnstown, Fulton County living near his folks Lodowyck Putman and Sarah Miller. He is now 50 NY, Olive 50 NY, Nancy 22 NY, Lewis (the American version of Lodowyck) 16 NY and Sarah 10 NY. They were in Will County in 1865

DANIEL PUTNAM† Warren, Jo Daviess County
He is now 70 VT, and a retired carpenter. He was here in 1860 and is living with William Putnam. See that listing, it's a bit confusing. Dan, as you found out in 1860, is from Grafton, Vermont a son of Daniel Putnam and Dorcas Bone.
JOHN PUTNAM† Warren, Jo Daviess County
He is 27 MA, a merchant, Eliza A. Sandor 28 ENG, Augustus (Augustus Lloyd) 4 IL, Charles (Charles Harrison) 3 IL, Walter (Walter DeForrest) 9/12 IL. Also there is a Fred Richards 6 IL, a son of Elizaís first marriage. He is a son of Henry Putnam (2250) and Eliza Goodrich, and was born in Hinsdale, Berkshire County, Massachusetts September 24, 1843. He was shown at home there in 1850. His brother Wollcott and William Henry Harrison were here in 1860. He married a widow Eliza A. (Sandow) Richards here November 23, 1865. Donít know what happens next. Elizabeth and Walter are in Kansas City, Missouri in 1880 and I canít find John or the other two sons in 1880. Charles and his mother Eliza are in Chicago in 1900.
LUCIA (SACIA) PUTNAM† Warren, Jo Daviess County
She is 21 NY, Ada 1 IL. She lives with Addie McDonald (her sister) 28 NY. She is Sacia A. McDonald, and married William Henry Harrison Putnam from Mass. here December 26, 1866. It seems that he has died quite recently. Her husband is/was NOT the next guy listed.
WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON PUTNAM† Warren, Jo Daviess County
He is 23 (28?) NY, a jeweler, Melvina Lynde his wife 22 NY, Ida 3 IL, and Naomi 4/12 IL. Also there is Daniel Putnam 70 VT, a retired carpenter. Interesting. Daniel was here in 1860 and in 1850 was in Otsego County, New York. He is from Grafton, Vermont and his line was given back in 1860. Okay, here we go. This guy is NOT the William Henry Harrison here in 1860. This is Danielís son listed as Morancy in 1860. Age, birthplace and occupation are identical. Morancy married Melvina Lynde here April 21, 1867. The other William married Sacia McDonald who is shown above as widowed. Best, but wild, guess is that after William from Mass. died around 1868, Morancy got tired of his name and took Williamís name for some reason. Everything fits, but itís quite confusing. But then they are in Carthage, Jasper County, Missouri and he again uses the name Morancy. So more likely the census taker screwed up on this listing. Good luck on this one.

He is listed as 22 NY, a clerk living by himself.

He was married to Lucretia Jones and was in Claremont, New Hampshire in 1840 and West Troy, New York in 1850. They were here in 1860, but I canít find them Lucretia died here July 18, 1859. He will die August 15, 1872 and Nancy will be widowed here in 1880. Young Jerry will still be with her then.
LUCY PUTNAM† Dundee, Kane County
