Listing is 0000001  100001. He is probably Daniel junior number 1817 or better 1817a. There was a son Daniel who died as an infant in 1800. I believe this is a second son of the same name (quite common then). The IGI has him born about 1805. Eben was vague on this family. In 1830 his widowed mom had a son, actually two, the right age to be this guy. This Daniel married Sophronia E. Chamberlain here August 17, 1836. They will be in Orange, Franklin County in 1850.

AMOS PUTNAM  Ludlow, Hampden County

Listing is 00000001  00001001. Eben didn’t give him a number in the 6th generation, but listed him as 1498 in the 7th generation. As 1498 was assigned to someone else (Ruth) in the earlier generation, we are labeling him as 1498a. He is a son of Abner Putnam (616) and Abigail Waters.

SAMUEL P. PUTNAM  Holliston, Middlesex County

Listing is 00001  00001. ?? I wonder if this is a ‘typo’ as Thomas Henry Putnam Junior, of the Yorkshire branch should be here. He is indeed here in the 1850 and so is his mother Rosamond. That guy was in Delaware County, NY in 1830 with his dad.

She has been here a while now. I have no record of a divorce, maybe she just left him. The kids have been here a while. John seems to have married a gal named Mrs. Sarah Priest Capron in Jaffrey in 1822. They had two more kids, John and Lorenzo. Anna however is going to apply for a pension based on John’s service in the Revolution. I really have no idea what’s going on here. Pray to God that there aren’t two Johns here.
