NEW YORK 1930 CENSUS

He is 33 NY VT NY and is a motorman on the street railway. His wife Margaret Eucker is 30 NY. They have been married 8 years and have Mae 6 NY, Maynard 5 NY and Donald 7/12 NY. He is a son of Edward Charles Putnam and Lulu M. Dunston from Saratoga Springs. He was home with his folks in 1910 and 1920.

 

CATHERINE PUTNAM  Albany 10, Albany County

She is 57 NY and widowed. She was here in 1910 and 1920 married to Charles Putman. Dutch family from Fulton County. I think her husband Charles is the one in nearby Schenectady who also is alone and says he is widowed. Hmmm.

 

EDWARD V. (VISCHER) PUTNAM  Albany 9, Albany County

He is 44 NY NY NY and is a railroad conductor. His wife Sarah Louisa Benedict is 49 NY and they have George Wellington 17 NY. He is a son of Simon Wellington Putman from Fonda, Montgomery County. He was home there in 1900 and married here in 1910 and 1920. Dutch family.

 

ELIZABETH PUTNAM  Albany 15, Albany County

He is 63 NY NY NY and has a wife Louise Dunn 42 WV and their kids Eleanor Putnam 20 WV and Roger Putnam16 WV. Her widowed mother Martha Dunn 76 WV is with them. I donÕt find him in 1900. In 1910 he is alone but says married in Brooklyn and Louise is with her folks in West Virginia. Louise is still with them in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1920. This is first time I have seen them together. Then as to Fred. I think he is Fred Rogers Putnam a son of Eli Putnam and Elizabeth Rogers and was at home with them in Boonville, Oneida County New York in 1870 at age 2 and at age 12 there in 1880 after both parents had died. DonÕt find him in 1900 anywhere. This is a New York Dutch family. A possible would be Frederick shown as the son of Hiram Putnam in Brooklyn, New York in 1870 at age 3. Hiram was widowed from 1861 on so that Frederick would be a kind illigit kid of either Hiram or one of his unmarried daughters Charlotte or Delia. I donÕt find that Fred in 1900 either. This is an English family out of Albany and Massachusetts before that. I lean towards EliÕs kid, but no proof either way. Coin Toss.

Here is some interesting stuff on Palmer: Ō  PALMER COSSLETT PUTNAM was an American consulting engineer and wind power pioneer. Putnam graduated from MIT in 1924 as a geologist after serving in the RAF during World War I. He is known as the designer of the Smith-Putnam wind turbine installed in 1941 in Vermont, the first megawatt-scale wind turbine project. Putnam wrote on the subject of wind power including "Power from the Wind" published in 1948, with an introduction by Vannevar Bush, describing the Smith-Putnam project.  His book "Energy in the Future", 1953, was reviewed in the journal "Science". Putnam served as the president of G. P. Putnam's Sons publishing company from the time of his father's death until 1932. During the Second World War he worked on military projects including the DUKW amphibious vehicle.Ķ He married Elizabeth Henley. Here is some stuff from her obituary when she died in Hood River, Oregon. ŌElizabeth (Liz/Betty) H. Putnam passed away on Dec. 11, 2011, at her home in Hood River. She was born in Ukiah, Calif., Sept. 26, 1916, to Bessie H. and Edward V. Henley. She lived in San Leandro, Calif., Campbell, Calif., and graduated from San Jose High School. She attended San Jose State College (now University) but World War II intervened in her life. She enlisted in the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) which became Women's Army Corp (WAC) during the war. She became a 2nd lieutenant and was involved in recruiting in the beginning and then was trained to rehabilitate the returning wounded soldiers. She in more recent years found that she had been a physical therapist although the name wasn't used. After the war, she finished her degree in physical education at San Jose State on the G.I. Bill. Having not been allowed to go overseas as a WAC, she joined a civilian recreational group who ran overseas recreational facilities and activities for the soldiers still deployed. She spent her time in Bremen, Germany. When she came home from this activity, she went to UCLA in Los Angeles where she completed her master's degree in physical education with a recreation emphasis and training for those with special physical needs P.E. Liz taught in a number of Los Angeles County High schools and at 95 still had her "girls" of her Drill Team as an active part of her life. One mentioned that Liz had come into their lives when they were 13 and had been a huge influence on their becoming independent women. She taught in very culturally mixed neighborhoods and had great respect for all her students of any socio-economic or cultural background. In 1962, she married Palmer Putnam, a talented engineer whose team developed the vehicle which became the snowcat and also the "duck." His first big project was a wind machine in Vermont in the late 1930s. Later he was honored by those building the wind machines even here in this area. He designed their trimaran boat. Palmer died November 28, 1984 in Atascadero where they had lived for many years after she retired from teaching.Ķ
