MISSOURI

CENSUS RETURNS

1820-1900

 

UPDATED JANUARY 30, 2013

Missouri became a part of the United States in 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase. In 1805 it was part of the Louisiana Territory and in 1812 became a separate Territory, and in 1821 Missouri became the 24th State.

 

The first Federal Census taken for the State was the 1830 Census. 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. In the 1900 and later Soundex, all families are listed.

 

 

MISSOURI 1820 CENSUS

 

There were no Putman or Putnam listings I could find.

 

 

MISSOURI 1830 CENSUS

 

JOHN PUTMANSt. Louis County

In 1840 he is still in the county living in St. Ferdinand. I am not certain who he is. He may be John Putman out of Kentucky. His son, John H. Putman, appears in the 1880 census of Oregon. The listing is 00101100001. He is in his 30s and she in her 20s. There is another male in his 20s who must be a brother. Both these older guys are here in 1840.

 

 

MISSOURI 1840 CENSUS

 

JAMES PUTNAMBenton County

He is in Alexander township. Listing is 20001001 01101. Benton County is next to Rives County (soon to be Henry County) in the western part of the state. The following Benjamin is a son of Wilson Putman from North Carolina. This James is not a brother, but may well be from North Carolina as well. Bad news is he's gone by 1850, so I'll never be certain.

 

WILLIAM PUTMANLinn County

The son of James Putman and Elizabeth Kendrick has come from Indiana with his wife Sarah Head and the family. They are listed 1301 00001. His father, James, is a son of Henry Putman from Culpeper County Virginia. The family went to Bracken County Kentucky then up into Monroe County Indiana. William married Sarah there in Monroe County on April 5, 1831

 

B. (BENJAMIN) PUTMANRives County

This is Benjamin Putman and his wife Mary (Polly) Buchanan. They are both in their 30s. The family is listed as 222101 010001. He is a son of Wilson Putman and Rebecca Morris from Tennessee. Wilson is from Rutherford County North Carolina, a son of Benjamin and Elizabeth Putman.

 

JOHN PUTMANSt. Louis County

Listed in St. Ferdinand township still. Listing is 000010200101. He and perhaps a brother are in their 40s. His wife (?) is still in her 20s, so it may be number two for him, or maybe he is widowed and his brother has a wife now, or maybe this is typical sloppy census taking. They are not here in 1850, so I just have no idea.

 

ABSOLUM PUTMANSt. Louis County

He is probably a Putnam, and the name should be Absalem. He is also in St. Ferdinand Township as is the above John who is probably his father. The listing is 000011001. He is in his 20s, his wife in her late teens.

 

EDMOND PUTNAMSt. Louis County

Living in the city of St. Louis. I believe he is from the Massachusetts family. The listing is 3001100001, with both he and his wife in their 20s with three young sons.

 

 

MISSOURI 1850 CENSUS

 

MARY PUTNAMCooper County

She is in Boonville. She is listed with Richard and Susan Jeffries from Virginia. They are her parents. Mary is 23 VA and her husband (see next listing), D. Putnam, is there as well.

 

D. (DARIUS ERASTUS) PUTNAMCooper County

He is with Mary and that gang listed above. He is also listed separately and shown as 22 MA. Darius married Mary Jeffries in Booneville on May 7, 1849. He is a son of Darius Putnam and Sally Putnam and was born in Sutton, Massachusetts March 25, 1828. They will be here in 1860. This Darius is number 2816 in Eben Putnam's books, his father is number 1255. The line back is this Darius E. > Darius > Asa > Edward > Edward > Edward > Thomas > John Putnam, the immigrant to Massachusetts.

 

HENRY PUTNAMGasconade County

Henry is 53 and was born in South Carolina. He might be connected to the Henry Putman of Charleston and Savannah. I cannot find a connection to any of our Putmans, yet. The only other possibility is he is a son of the Daniel Putman from SC who went to Tennessee and then dropped out of sight by 1840.

 

JOHN PUTMANGreene County

John and Mary Garrett arrived in the 1840s with a large family. In this report, he is 66 SC, Mary 52 SC, Sarah 30 TN, Nancy 26 TN, Mary 24 TN, Susan 22 TN, John G. 21 TN, Elizabeth 19 TN, Daniel C. 16 TN, Minerva 14 MO, William H. 12 MO, Joseph E. 5 MO. John is a son of Daniel and Sarah Putman of Abbeville District, South Carolina. His line goes back John > Daniel > Zachariah > Zachariah > Thomas > Thomas > Thomas. Thomas Putnam Sr. was the immigrant from England who came to Virginia in 1647. Southern Branch.

Children are Newton 24 TN, Emily 22 TN, Lafayette 18 TN, Israel 20 TN, Van Buren 13 TN, Sarah 6 MO, Ellen 4 MO, Jane 3 MO and William (William Wilson, actually) 1 MO. His line goes back Benjamin > Wilson > Benjamin > Thomas > Zachariah > Thomas > Thomas > Thomas in Virginia. Southern Branch.

 

CALVIN PUTMANLawrence County

He is a son of William and Alla Putman up from Washington County Arkansas. His folks are next door, probably helping him settle into his new home. He just married Martha Simms in 1846. He is a blacksmith 26 IN, she is 24 IN. There are no children yet. Southern Branch.

 

WILLIAM PUTMANLawrence County

He and his wife Alla Bridges are here very temporarily, just over the border from their regular home in West Fork, Washington County Arkansas. Their family is also in the 1850 census of Washington County Arkansas. They must have come up with Cal to his new farm and were home to be counted in Arkansas as well. The listing is William 60 VA (should read SC), a cooper, Alice (Alla Bridges) 55 VA (also SC), Solomon 22 IN, George 14 IL, Joseph 10 IL and Prudence 7 IL. William is a son of Daniel and Prudence Putman from Anderson County South Carolina. The kids were born in Gibson County Indiana and then they went to Fulton County Illinois and then to West Fork, Washington County Arkansas. His line goes back William > Daniel > Barnet > Thomas > Zachariah > Thomas > Thomas > Thomas. Southern Branch.

 

WILLIAM PUTMANLinn County

Bill is 37 KY, Sarah (Head) is 41 VA. Kids are Francis Marion 18 IN, Peter 16 IN, Jonathan 14 IN, Squire 12 IN, Mary 9 MO, Benjamin B. 5 MO and Jefferson 3 MO. Southern Branch. The son of James Putman and Elizabeth Kendrick.

William's brother is 34 KY, Melvina Baker his wife is 34. Children are Clinton 13 IN, Amanda 11 IN, Elizabeth 10 MO, Anna 9 MO, William 5 MO, Sarah 3 MO and James 1 MO. Southern Branch.

 

LAVINA J. PUTMANPolk County

She is 21 born in Tennessee living with a family headed by James and Martha Stockton. She is Lavina Jane Stockton who is the wife of Rufus Putman, the son of Benjamin Putman of Henry (Rives) County. They were married on October 25, 1849. Rufus has headed to the Gold Fields. The family will join him soon. They appear in the town of Rough And Ready, Nevada County California in the 1870 Census. They will be out in California a while, digging for gold first and then farming. Southern Branch.

 

HENRY PUTTMANSt. Genevieve County

He is 40 years old and was born in Germany.

 

CHARLES PUTNAMSt. Louis County

He is listed as 32 MA, a hackdriver in St. Louis. He is Charles Augustus Putnam born in Danvers, Massachusetts on September 20, 1823. He is Number 1533 in Eben Putnam's book. Look quick as he will marry Lydia Tapley here in 1853 and then turn around and die here on January 2, 1854. I suppose, after the wildest New Year's Eve party of his life. His line is Charles > Jesse > Joseph > David > Joseph > Thomas > John.

 

JOHANNES PUTTMANSt. Louis County

He is shown as 40 and being born in Missouri. He is with his sister Fredricka 35. He is most likely related to the German Puttman family that was in Monroe County Ohio in 1820. If he was indeed born in Missouri, then there were either two families around early, or I am wrong about the John Putman in the 1830 census, and that guy was German. Johannes or John is possibly related to the above Henry in St. Genevieve County brothers likely.

 

 

MISSOURI 1860 CENSUS

 

P. (PHILIP) PUTMANBates County

He is 20 NY. He is with Dewitt Putman, his brother, see next listing, as a farmhand with Susan Adams 30 TN and her young family.

SAMUEL H. PUTNAMBenton County

He is 31 TN and his wife Catherine is 17 MO. All of the Putnam/Putman folks in Tennessee in the 1820s were from the Southern family, but I can't tie him in anywhere, unless to Daniel who was in Tennessee and not much is known about him. He married Catherine E. Cook here on May 4, 1859. I don't find him after this census.

 

ELIZA PUTMANBollinger County

She is 64 from Prussia living with the Meyers Family also from Germany.

 

HENRY PUTNAMCarroll County

He is 39 from Canada living with the Soucks family also from Canada.

 

MARTHA J. PUTNAMCass County

She is 22 IN. She is living with Mark and Rachael McAfish. It appears that Rachel 23 IN is her sister. Also there are Marion Putnam 12 IN and Sophronia 9 IN her brother and sister. I don't find these folks in Indiana, Illinois or Iowa in 1850, so cannot help here.

 

JOHN PUTNAMCass County

He is shown as 22 AR and is with a family of William and Ruth Fry. He is most likely connected to Samuel Putnam's family that had been in Crawford County Arkansas since 1817. Samuel Putnam is from Kentucky and his folks from Massachusetts.

They will return to Schuyler County New York (that part was in Steuben County when they were last there) in 1868 and be there in the 1870 census. The line goes back Ebenezer > John > John > Victor > David > Jan Putman.

 

HENRY PUTMANGasconade County

NANCY PUTMANLawrence County

She is listed as 40 years old and an 'inmate' living with Henry 40 and Sarah 25 Gill and their family. I am not certain who she is or whether she was born a Putman or born perhaps a Gill and married at one time to a Putman. There are no birthplaces recorded on the entire page this report was on. Now, Calvin, who was here in 1850 left his wife, Martha Sims, and went on the gold rush to California with his brother George. There is a slight, only slight, chance that this Nancy might be his deserted wife. Lawrence County is on the Arkansas border. Not sure at all.

 

PETER PUTMANLinn County

Peter is William's son. He is 26 IN and Araminta McPheeters is 24 IN (should be IL). Children are George 2 and Walter 1 born MO. They were married here April 30, 1857. Southern Branch.

JAMES PUTMANLinn County

He is from New York and is 24.

 

HENRY PUTMANLinn County

He is 30 born in Ohio and living with the family of Samuel Moore. There was a Henry Putman, age 18, in the 1850 census of Licking County Ohio who was a son of a clergyman, E. M. Putnam. He is the only one I find that is close in age. If he is the same, then he is from New England or at least his ancestors were.

 

FRANCIS PUTNAMMarion County

He is 27 from Canada living with a DeWitt family.

 

JOHN PUTNAMMercer County

He is 45 NY, Mary Meek 43 OH, Lucretia 19 NY, Samuel D. 13 OH, Silvy 9 OH, Veronica 8 OH and Mary E. 6 OH. He is a son of David and Mary Putnam from Huron County Ohio.

John was first married to Mary Lester back in New York, she died and he married Mary Meek. They will be in Decatur County Iowa for the 1870 census. Dutch family from NY.

He is in Morgan Township. He is 25 IL, Mary Kelsey 24 IN, Franklin 5 IA, Jane 3 IA and Tilford 1 MO. He is Green Marion Putman, son of Elijah Putman and Elizabeth Duff. His wife is Mary Elizabeth Kelsey. Elijah was a son of Daniel and Prudence Putman from South Carolina. The family went to Fulton County Illinois where Green was born and then to Davis County Iowa. He will go back to Freemont, Iowa for a while and then return here for the rest of his life. His line is Green > Elijah > Daniel > Barnet > Thomas > Zachariah > Thomas > Thomas > Thomas. Southern Branch.

 

JAMES D. PUTMANOregon County

He is a son of Amos Putman and Mary Ann Heaton from South Carolina. He is 42 SC, Sarah L. A. Morris, his wife, is 35 TN and they have Zack 23 TN, most likely his son, living with them. Zachariah appeared in 1850 back in Tennessee living with his grandfather Amos, but that was because his dad James was in between wives who kept dying off on him. Sarah is wife number two. Sarah will die in a few years and he will marry Rebecca Elizabeth Gill in January 1870. James married Sarah Ann Morris in Williamson County Tennessee on June 18, 1840. His lineage is James > Amos > James > Zachariah > Zachariah > Thomas > Thomas > Thomas. Southern Branch.

SILAS S. PUTNAMSt. Louis County

He is 26 NJ a clerk living alone. He wasn't in the 1850 New Jersey Census. The only folks in New Jersey in the 1830s were related to Miles Putnam from Vermont and Massachusetts before that. He must be related to Miles in some way.

 

FERDINAND PUTMANSt. Louis County

He is a wood turner, 40 from Hanover, Germany. Lucy 20 GER seems to be his second? wife. Children are Adolph 8 MO, Matilda 5 MO, Lavinia 2 MO and Ferdinand 4 months MO.

 

SARAH PUTNAMSt. Louis County

Sarah Putman is 48 MA and her son Charles 24 MA. She is Sarah Gilson, ex-wife of Charles Putnam (2384) of Lowell, Mass. They were married about 6 years and then separated (no divorce). She moved with Charles to her folks in Pennsylvania. I have no clue why they moved out here though. The young guy is Charles Orrin Putnam born in Lowell, Mass. November 8, 1835. He will be marrying Susan Saul here in 1861 and will be around forever. Sarah will still be here in 1880 at age 69.

She is 22 MI and a sister of J. A. Braswell. Her son Jewel (Stanley Jewel) 6 IL is there too, as is her widowed mom Margaret Braswell 53 WI. Mamie says she is married but her husband Alonzo Putnam is nowhere to be found. He does pop up back in Nashville, Tennessee with a new wife Nettie or Nellie in 1910 and there still in 1920. Letís back up a minute. Well, just found some more new info when I came across Stanleyís death certificate. He died here June 4, 1942 and his name was indeed Stanley Jewel Putnam. His dad was Alonzo Putnam from Tennessee and his mother Mamie Braswell from Michigan. So why I couldnít find Stanley in 1900 was that he was listed as Jewel with his mom right here in 1900. I still canít find him in 1910, and heís back to using Jewell again in 1930. Then I decided to try and figure his dad out now that I know his momís name. Well there was only one Alonzo Putman ever born in Tennessee and he was a son of David and Mary Putman from Rutherford County Tennessee, born there in 1867. I still canít find him in 1900, but he is in Nashville, Tennessee in 1910 with a wife Nettie. They had been married 9 years and that was his second marriage. Obviously the first one was right here with Mamie Braswell. He went simply by the name Lon and was in Nashville in 1910 and 1920 and canít find that family in 1930.
