KENTUCKY

CENSUS REPORTS

1800  -  1900

 

UPDATED SEPTEMBER 30, 2012

 

The entire state of Kentucky was originally part of Augusta County, Virginia. In 1776 it became Kentucky County, Virginia and in 1780 was divided into three counties. Kentucky became a state, the 15th, in 1792. The first Federal Census taken was in 1810.

 

The following is a listing of early Putman and Putnam families as they are listed in the existing census reports covering Kentucky.

 

In the 1810 census both males and females are broken into 0-9, 10- 15, 16-25, 26-44, 45 and over.

 

In the 1820 census males are broken down 0-9, 10-15, 16-18, 19-25, 26-44, 45 and older. Females are divided 0-9, 10-15, 16-25, 26-44, 45 and over.

 

In the 1830 and 1840 census both males and females are listed 0-4, 5-9, 10- 14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, etc.

 

From 1850 on ages and states of birth are shown. In 1880 places of birth are listed for the person, their father and their mother. In the 1880 Soundex, only families with children under 10 are listed.

 

Most of the lines in Kentucky are part of the Southern Putman line. You can look on this website under Southern Putman Families, then go to Kentucky. Most lines are under Jabel Putmanís sons and Henry Putman. There is one major New England line, Joseph Putnam from Sudbury Massachusetts who came to Louisville very early on. His early lines are listed there too.

 

 

KENTUCKY 1800 CENSUS

 

This was taken from the tax list of June 10, 1800. It only lists the taxpayers by name and county.

 

HENRY PUTMAN  Mason County

Zachariah and Margaret's son from Culpeper County, Virginia. He was born there about 1747, and married Elizabeth Kendrick in the early 1770s. He served with his brother Daniel (now in South Carolina) in the Virginia Militia during the Revolution. He was listed here on various tax lists from the early 1790s on. He will be here until he dies in 1825.

 

JOHN PUTMAN  Mason County

Another of Zachariah's sons. He was born about 1740 in Middlesex County, Virginia. He went briefly into North Carolina, and he appears in 1788 in the Hillsborough District of Randolph (now Orange) County, North Carolina. In the 1790 Census, he is there with his wife and a young son and young daughter. It then seems he returned to Culpeper County, Virginia and joined his brother Henry on their trip here to Kentucky. I donít find him in 1810.

 

ZACHARIAH PUTMAN  Mason County

He is son of Daniel Putman and Sarah Kendrick from Abbeville County, South Carolina. Daniel was a brother of the above Henry and John Putman, and a son of Zachariah and Margaret Putman. He was born on December 9, 1775. The family he was traveling with, that of John Putman was in Bourbon County, Kentucky in the late 1790s. Zachariah married Winifred Collins on January 17, 1797 there in Bourbon County.

He'll join his brother Simeon in Monroe County, Kentucky by 1820. Simeon may well also be in the area having married another Mercer girl, Margaret or Peggy Mercer. But I do not find a listing for him. Both Hiram and Simeon will be in Kentucky through the middle 1820s and then into Tennessee.

00110110  0010001. Henry's son now in his 40s as is his wife Lucy Johnson. As I showed in the main section, I am not certain who the various children were.

0000001  0000001. This is Henry Putman Junior and Martha Kendrick, now in their 40s. They moved over from Mason County where they have been for ages. They will be here again in 1850, and be living with their married daughter Angeline. Thatís possibly what brought them over here in the first place.

 

JOSEPH PUTNAM  Fayette County

01021001  00110001. Joe and Susan Hull are still here. He has a bunch of kids that I do not find with him in Kentucky in 1850.

JOHN PUTNAM  Louisville, Jefferson County

He is 25 MA, Coach maker from Massachusetts. No ideas here, not part of Josephís family.

 

EVA PUTMAN  Hamiltons, LaRue County

She is 45 from Kentucky and has a son John L. Putman 13 born in Illinois with her. She is living with Isaac Harris 46 KY and the family of James and Elizabeth Hornback. She is the widow of some Putman, but I have no idea as to whom. There is a marriage record in Wythe County, Virginia of an Eva Smith marrying a Joseph Putman in 1868. Joseph was a son of Thomas Putman and Mary Hoback. This came from the LDS/IGI. If Hoback and Hornback were the same family then there must be some connection here. On the other hand, I have no idea who Thomas Putman was so that is no help here either. Who knows? They are in Iowa in the State 1857 and Federal 1860 census. She is in a County Poor House there in 1880.

 

DANIEL K. PUTMAN  District 2, Lewis County

He is still living with Cumberland and Angeline Wilson. Angeline 39, is his daughter. Henry junior is 67 VA, Patsy (Martha Kendrick) is 63 KY. There are of course a whole bunch of Wilson kids living here as well. Benjamin Kendrick 45 KY and his large family live next door. Another relative.

 

ELIJAH H. PUTMAN  Murray, Calloway County

He is 47 SC with a son Willy or Wily age 24 KY. None of these folks in Calloway County had shown up in the 1850, but all obviously were in the state then as the kids births go back to the 1840s in Kentucky. Calloway is just over the Tennessee border. He is probably a brother of James Putman. Another possibility is that he was a son of Daniel Putman, another of James and Joice's sons that went to Tennessee and simply disappeared. The following Lucy Putman would be connected here somehow as well, married to another son possibly of Daniel.

 

JAMES PUTMAN  Murray, Calloway County

He is the James that was in Rutherford County, Tennessee in 1850. In 1850 he was listed as an idiot. In this 1860 listing, his wife Elizabeth is shown as head of household and he is listed last so I guess he is still a basket case of sorts. The kids and wife also match up well. In this listing James is 53 SC, Elizabeth Ann 38 TN, William Lamb 19 TN, John H. S. 15 TN, Mary N. 9 TN and Harding E. 2 KY. He is a son of Jabel and Nancy Putman of Union County, South Carolina. His wife is Elizabeth Ann Lamb. They were married in Rutherford County, Tennessee on July 23, 1844. Elizabeth was a Crick who had married William Lamb before marrying James. In fact her folks William H. Crick 64 SC and his second wife Elizabeth 54 TN and their family live next door. This line is James > Jabel > James > Zachariah II > Zachariah I > Thomas > Thomas > Thomas Putnam.

 

JANE ANN PUTMAN  Murray, Calloway County

She is 23 KY a maid or cook or something for William and Pamelia Dicks.

 

LUCY M. PUTMAN  Murray, Calloway County

This family lives either with the above Elijah or next to him. She is 47 VA and listed as being blind for 14 years. With her are Nathaniel 23 KY, Lucinda F. 17 KY, Mary F. 15 KY and Rhoda C. 12 KY. Also there is Louis Brandon 25 KY, maybe Lucy's brother or a son from a prior marriage. Lucy's husband was most likely a brother of Elijah and possibly of James.

 

WILLIAM PUTMAN  Hopkinsville, Christian County

He is 21 KY and Sarah Elizabeth Knight is 21 KY. He is William Riley Putman a son of Hiram Putman and Rebecca Jane Harrison from Williamson County, Tennessee. Hiram was a son of Jabel and Nancy Putman from South Carolina. He was born in Williamson County December 19, 1838. He married Sarah here in Christian County January 20, 1859. They will both be here through the 1920 census, and then die in that decade.

 

MARY E. PUTMAN  Fulton County

She is 18 KY living with the family of S. J. and Lucinda P. Henry. Lucinda 36 KY was probably a sister and a Putman. This is right over the line from Obian and Weakley County, Tennessee in the SW corner of Kentucky. Amos Putmanís family had moved to that part of Tennessee from Williamson County in the 1850s. These gals are probably connected to that family.

 

ELIZABETH PUTMAN  Underwood, Hopkins County
