There is a birth record stating Oliver was born in Canajoharie, Montgomery County New York May 18, 1873 and his father was Mr. Putnam and mother Kate Parr. So I looked in the 1880 census in Canajoharie County and found This Listing: ŌWILLIAM PUTMAN  Canajoharie, Montgomery County. He is 53 NY, Catherine 43 NY and Albert 7 NY. He may be the guy here single in 1870, but the age is off. Obviously just married in the past decade.Ķ So age is perfect for Kate who is 64 NY in 1900. The writing was bad in the 1880 and I thought it said Albert, but itÕs Oliver and he was 7 NY in 1880 and 27 NY in 1900 so thatÕs his family and obviously Dutch Poutman coming from Montgomery County.

His mom died in 1929 and his stepdad in 1930. Still no ideas on his real dad, but everyone in Ogle County then were on the New York Dutch line and that would be why he spells his name Putman.
