CENSUS REPORTS

1790-1870

 

UPDATED APRIL 18, 2013

 

Pennsylvania was, of course, one of the first areas settled in America and was one of the original Thirteen Colonies. Census reports here begin with the first Federal Census, the 1790.

 

In the 1790 census, the columns are males over 16, males under 16 and females of all ages.

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

In the 1800 and 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.

PENNSYLVANIA 1790 CENSUS

 

This census is comprised totally of the German family that has descended from Andrew Butman or later Putman of Washington County Maryland. They first settled in Bedford County and then you will note they are all suddenly in Somerset County. Nope, didn't move. Somerset was formed out of Bedford in 1795 and they were in the portion of Bedford that became Somerset County. By 1800, one family out of New England will show up, and the German family will continue to expand. Here are the ones around for the First U.S. Census.

 

ANDREW PUTMAN None listed, Bedford County

A son of Andrew Putman Senior and Catherine Bourgey. Young Andrew was just married to Elizabeth Lenhart in April 1790. The others with him are probably his mom Catherine, and another couple, probably his sister Catherine and her hubby Adam Schneider. The listing is two males above 16, no males under 16 and 3 females. Andrew is 23 years old at this time, born in 1867. German family.

 

JOHN PUTMANNone listed, Bedford County

Another son of Andrew Putman. The listing is one male above 16, two males under 16, and 3 females. John married Sarah Schneider. He will die in 1799 and Sarah will be here widowed with the kids. The kids at home are Henry, John jr., Peter, Magdalena and Elizabeth. German family.

 

PETER PUTMANNone listed, Bedford County

Yet another son of Andrew Putman. The listing is one male above 16, three males under 16, and 1 female. The family is Peter, his wife Maria Schneider, John, Jacob and Peter.

 

JOHN POTTMAN†† None listed, Luzerne County

Putting him down just in case. The listing is 1 male 16 years and up, and 5 females. I think it is Putman. He looks like the guy in Olean New York in 1810, but not positive.

 

 

PENNSYLVANIA 1800 CENSUS

 

CHRISTOPHER PUTMANAllen Township, Cumberland County

The listing is for Christ r. The listing is 0401102010. In 1810, there is a Christopher Peelman living right here with the same neighbors as this guy has now. Matt Putnam checked these censuses and found there were a number of Peelmans in the area over the years. This guy is probably the senior Peelman in the area. But, he might be a Putman, but doubt it. In the IGI, there is a marriage record of an Edwin Putnam marrying Elizabeth Davis in Carlisle, Cumberland County on June 12, 1800. In 1810 there is a Caleb Potman in Chester County. I havenít a clue about any of these people.

 

MICAH PUTNAMGreenfield, Erie County

He is listed as Michael, but is actually Micah Putnam, son of Nathan and number 610 in Eben Putnam's books. He was born in Sutton, Massachusetts on April 8, 1754. He married Anna Carriel there on May 26, 1774. They moved to New York State after the Revolution. Anna died there on August 24, 1794. He then took his sons James and Rufus and moved across the border to Pennsylvania. Anyway, the current listing is 0110100000. He is widowed of course, and will be in 1810 as well. The two sons will have headed back into New York.

 

ANDREW PUTNAMMilford, Somerset County

Andrew Junior, son of the patriarch of the German family. The listing is 2001030010. Andrew and Elizabeth Lenhart have at home John, Mary, Gabriel, Catherine and Eva.

 

PETER PUTNAMMilford, Somerset County

Andrew Senior's son and his wife Maria Schneider. The listing is 4201010010. The kids are, in this ascending order: Henry, David, Michael and Peter. John and Jacob. Elizabeth.

 

SARAH PUTNAMSomerset, Somerset County

John Putman died in 1799, Sarah Schneider is his widow. The listing is 3000010001. Kids are Peter, John, Henry and Elizabeth.

 

 

PENNSYLVANIA 1810 CENSUS

 

Obviously, we are missing a few families here. There were no Putnam listings found on this census, but there are some other Putmans here and not listed.

 

ANDREW PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

Andrew and Elizabeth are here and will be through the 1830s. The listing is 2121032110.

 

JACOB PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

The listing is 0010010100. He is a son of Peter Putman and Maria Schneider. He is married to Elizabeth Gross. They will move to Wayne County Ohio in about 1818-1819 and then to Sandusky County Ohio and remain there.

 

PETER PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

Peter and Maria are here and listed 3301010201. They are here in 1820.

 

HENRY PUTMANSomerset Township, Somerset County

He is the eldest son of John and Sarah Putman. He will die in 1815, and never married. Listing is 0001000000.

 

SARAH PUTMANSomerset Township, Somerset County

Sarah Schneider is the widow of John Putman. The listing is 0010000001, there is still a son at home who would be the son John. His younger brother, Peter, chose Adam Schneider, who had married his aunt Catherine Putman, as guardian in 1808 and is living with that family.

 

MICAH PUTMANBrokenstraw Township, Warren County

He moved from Erie County in 1800. He is widowed still, the listing is 0000100000. He had two sons who don't show up here, but may be in New York. He is in his 60s. This will be his last appearance.

 

 

PENNSYLVANIA 1820 CENSUS

 

JOHN PUTNAMTroy Township, Bradford County

The listing is 0101013101. He is number 1047, a son of Eleazer Putnam (409) and Mary Crosby of Medford, Massachusetts. He was born there November 12, 1767, served in the Revolution in the western part of Massachusetts, and moved to the Great Barrington area of Berkshire County Massachusetts in 1807. He is listed in Dalton, Berkshire County in 1810. He moved here to Bradford County in 1817. He first married Fiche Van Duesen, and had his first two daughters. After she died, he married Lendy Andrus. Theyíll be here in 1830.

 

CALEB POTMANKennett, Chester County

Listing is 01101100111. May or may not be a Putman/Putnam, but putting him in just in case.

 

PHINEAS PUTNAMConneaut Township, Crawford County

He is a son of Levi and Hannah (Allen) Putnam from Whittingham, Windham County Vermont. Levi was born in Sutton, Massachusetts, his son Phineas was born in Washington, Vermont. The line going backwards is Phineas>Levi>Phineas>Isaac>Edward>Thomas>John Putnam. Levi is number 598 in Eben's books and that was as far as Eben could trace, but we are doing better. Phineas was born February 24, 1792. He married Jane McFaden, daughter of William McFaden of Warren County Pennsylvania, here January 15, 1818. He will be here all his life as will several of his kids. He will die here May 18, 1868 in Harmonsburg, Crawford County. The present listing is 1000101001.

 

WILLIAM PUTMANNone listed, Dauphin County

The listing is 0000100010. Both he and his wife are in the 26-44 age group. No ideas at all here.

 

CLARK PUTNAMNorth East Township, Erie County

This is a new group and the upcoming John looks possibly like a cousin. Clark will be here still in 1830, as will one of his sons. The listing is 01010100210. He's in his fifties now. His wife Mary Allen is in her forties. This is a New England family. Some listings in the IGI indicate he is a son of Cornelius Putnam and Elizabeth Perkins of Sutton, Massachusetts. I think he descended from Corneliusí brother Tarrant Putnam number 342. I first find Clark in Crown Point, Clinton County New York in the 1790 census. He lived next to Peter Putman who was a son of Tarrant. By 1800 and 1810, Clark was in Rome, Oneida County New York with his brothers Abijah and Caleb and an older woman who could be his mother. Then he next appears here in 1820. Mary Allen is his second wife, I do not know who his first wife was, but the second oldest male listed here, Joseph, was from the first marriage.

 

JOHN W. (WELLINGTON) PUTNAMNorth East Township, Erie County

A cousin of Clark Putnam. Listing here is 2001112001. Looks like he is in his 30s and his wife Minerva Scott is in her mid 20s. The older guy in his 50s is his father Abijah Putnam, the younger guy his brother Henry. Abijah was a son of Tarrant Putnam and is a brother of the above listed Clark Putnam. They were in Rome, New York together in 1800, and then Abijah took his family across the border to Canada and was there in 1810 and so missed the New York Census that year. Abijah is going to die in the next decade. He is probably ill now and thatís why his name didnít head up this family listing. By 1830 John and Henry will be Brownville, Jefferson County New York. By 1840 Henry will be in Winnebago County Illinois, and John will be back in Ontario, Canada. Johnís youngest son, Henry, will be born there in 1837. By 1850, John will have joined his brother in Illinois.

 

ANDREW PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

Andy junior and Anna Elizabeth Lenhart. The listing is currently 01110121001. Andrew is in his early 50s, Elizabeth in her forties. German family.

 

GEORGE PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

He is Peter's son, born in 1800 with his wife Julian Baker. Listing is 01010000100. They don't have children of their own, the teenager is Georgeís brother Joseph. German family.

 

MICHAEL PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

Peter and Maria's son. He just married Esther Landis in April 1820, and is setting up his farm. The listing is 01020000100. The extra two males would be his brothers David and Henry. Don't forget both mom and dad died, mom in 1814, and they are on their own now. German family like everyone in this county.

 

PETER PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

He is Peter, junior, Peter Putman and Maria Schneider's son. He married Elizabeth Kooser in 1810. The listing is 20001000010. They live on his folk's original farm on Glade Road in Milford. German folks.

 

ELIJAH PUTNAMCovington Township, Tioga County

His Massachusetts line goes back Samuel>Thomas>Thomas>Thomas>John Putnam the immigrant. He is number 437 in Eben's works. He was born in Lunenburg, Massachusetts, moved to Langdon, New Hampshire in the 1790s. He is here with his second wife Lucy Redington. His son Thomas is nearby. The rest of the family are his two daughters, Christina and Sarah, and a son. As to the son, Eben's book only lists the one son Thomas, so I don't know who this son is. It also just may be a mistake. The listing is 00100101001. New England English folks.

 

THOMAS PUTNAMCovington Township, Tioga County

He is Elijah's son. He is number 1091 in Eben's books. He was a General in the State Militia. He married Hannah Huntington here on December 29, 1814. She will die in January 1821, and he'll marry Zilpah Porter here February 7, 1828. Current listing is 11001030010. The only son born by now was Edwin, so I have no clue as to the other younger one, perhaps he died very young. The daughters are Diantha, Christina and Lucy. There will be more once he marries Zilpha. Thomas will be here all his life until he dies in 1870.

 

 

PENNSYLVANIA 1830 CENSUS

 

JOHN PUTMANFranklin Township, Bradford County

He is the daddy of these folks here in Bradford County. The listing is 000000001000210001. He is number 1047, a son of Eleazer Putnam (409) and Mary Crosby of Medford, Massachusetts. He was born there November 12, 1767, served in the Revolution in the western part of Massachusetts, and moved to the Great Barrington area of Berkshire County Massachusetts in 1807. He is listed in Dalton, Berkshire County in 1810. He moved here to Bradford County in 1817. He first married Fiche Van Duesen, and had his first two daughters.

There are three daughters at home, Lydia, Sarah and Jane. His sons, Henry, Isaac and Luman are around him with their own flocks. John will be living with Luman in 1840 and will die before 1850 (actually May 31, 1844). This line goes back John (1047) > Eleazer (409) > Henry > Eleazer > John > John Putnam.

 

HENRY PUTMANFranklin Township, Bradford County

Another county along the Southern Tier of New York. He is listed as Harry now, Henry in 1840, which is his name. John coming up is his father. Henry is here in 1840 and 1850. His other brothers, Isaac and Luman were listed in 1850 as being born in Massachusetts as was their father, John. Henry was born there as well as shown in 1850. The current listing is 10001001, with he in his 20s and his wife Mary in her late teens. All the families here in Bradford County live next to or near each other.

WILLIAM PUTMANHarrisburg, Dauphin County

He was here in Dauphin County in 1820 and just married. The present listing is 000000200101. He is in his 40s and it looks like he has a brother with him about the same age. In 1840 he is in his 50s and the other guy in his 40s. Finally in 1850, William is shown as being all alone in an Inn at age 61 and it states he was born in England and is a bricklayer.

 

CLARK PUTNAMNorth East Township, Erie County

Still here. Listing now is 000000001100001. He is now in his 60s, with a young daughter. In 1850 he is 82 and states he was born in Massachusetts. His wife, Mary Allen, is younger and was born in Pennsylvania. She is his second wife, as the upcoming son Joseph is too old for her plus he was born in New York. Clark, his folks and wife one were in Oneida County New York where Joe was born, and then headed across the line into Pennsylvania and he remarried.

 

JOSEPH PUTNAMNorth East Township, Erie County

He wasn't in the index but was listed next to his father, Clark Putnam. The current listing is 21000110001. He is in his 30s. In 1850 we find he was born in New York as was his wife Joanna Russell. Based on the ages then, Joseph is now 34. But, Joanna was his second wife. He was first married to her sister Mary or Polly Russell who died in the late 1820s.

 

ANDREW PUTMAN Milford Township, Somerset County

Another of Peter's sons and his wife Julia Baker. Listing is 2000100011. Both parents are in their 20s. The two sons are John born in 1827 and William born in 1829. I have no idea who the gal in her late teens is. George will die in 1834, and the rest of the family isn't listed in 1840, probably merged in with Julia's folks. In 1850, the sons John and William will be here both starting up their own families.

 

JOSEPH PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

This is Peter's son. He and his wife, Elizabeth (also a Putman, daughter of Andrew jr.) will be going to Stark County Ohio in 1835. German family, of course. The current listing is 0000100001. Both are in their twenties at this time.

PETER PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

He is Peter Junior and Elizabeth Kooser. Listing is 10110011100001. Both are in their forties. The children listed are John, Rebecca, David, Amelia and Peter 3rd. German family from Maryland.

URIAH PUTMANLewisburg, Union County

DANIEL PUTNAMPine Grove Township, Warren County

This is just below western New York State. Daniel is a full blooded Putnam. His father is Jesse Putnam, son of Ephraim Putnam and Sarah Cram, and his mother was Rachel Putnam daughter of Nathaniel and Abigail (Wilkins) Putnam. Jesse, who by the way is here too, was born in Lyndeborough, New Hampshire on September 21, 1750 and will die right here on November 19, 1837. Jesse is number 782 in Eben's book. The family moved from Lyndeborough to Guilford, Vermont where Daniel was born, and then moved to Buffalo, New York. Rachel died there and Jess and Dan'l moved over the border to Pennsylvania. Daniel was born in Guilford on February 21, 1794. He married Betsy Barrett in Buffalo on January 1, 1822. They will be here in 1840 and Betsy and the some of the kids will be here later. Daniel died here in Russell, Pennsylvania on November 8, 1847. Jesse, as I told you will pass on in 1837. The listing is 200001000111001. He is in his 30s, his wife in her 20s with four young kids. The guy way over in his 70s is Jesse. In 1840 this Daniel is listed as David, but is the same guy.

 

EDSON PUTNAMPine Grove, Warren County

The listing is 20000102001. He was in Concord, Niagara County New York in 1820. He was born November 25, 1797 in Guilford, Windham County Vermont. He is married Elizabeth Knapp. He is a brother to the above Daniel, so lineage is the same. They are both here in 1840.†††

 

 

PENNSYLVANIA 1840 CENSUS

 

PETER PUTMANColerain Township, Bedford County

The listing is 0210001000010001. He is in his 40s, his wife her 20s and an older woman is in her 60s, probably his mom. I donít know his line, but it would be German I am sure. They settled here in Bedford County and then about 1800 Somerset County was carved out of Bedford and most are there now or out in Ohio. In 1850 there is an Eliza Jane Putman, with three sons that fit here perfectly, in Dublin, Mercer County Ohio. They are there forever and several other Pennsylvania German families start showing up there. I would guess Eliza is this Peterís wife.

 

HENRY PUTNAMGranville Township, Bradford County

He was part of the group of John and his kids that popped up here in 1830. The listing here is 111001010001. Both Henry and his wife are in their 30s. They are here in 1850.

 

ISAAC PUTNAMGranville Township, Bradford County

Another of John's sons, same as Henry. They are brothers. This listing is 11001000001. They are here in 1850, so I can guess at his listing here in 1840. Isaac is 32 born in Massachusetts, Abigail (Taylor) 31 PA, Alfred 5 PA, Sylvester 1 PA. There will be more in 1850.

 

JOHN PUTNAMGranville Township, Bradford County

He is the local patriarch of this family. He is listed with his son Luman, but there is a notation way over on the right side of the ledger page, stating, ďJohn Putnam age 72.Ē

 

LEONARD PUTNAMRome Township, Crawford County

He is NOT part of the family of Phineas who has been in the County a while, but is also from Vermont like Phineas. Leonard is from Guilford, Vermont. He is a son of John Putnam and Sabra Preston. He'll be here in 1850 and in that listing you'll find out who he is. The listing is 002101010001. He is 38 from Vermont, Sally Kelley, his wife, 31 from New York.

 

PHINEAS PUTNAMSadsbury Township, Crawford County

Levi's son has been and will still be here a while. The current listing is 11120011121001. At present he is 47 VT, Jane McFaden 42 PA. They and the kids will be here in 1850, and there is a whole slew of them.

 

JOHN PUTMANNorth Middleton Township, Cumberland County

The listing is 000000001110001. He is shown in his 60s, his wife (I assume a second wife, or he just married late in life) in her 30s. This is their only appearance, so I have no thoughts here.

 

WILLIAM PUTMAMHarrisburg, Dauphin County

Been here since 1820. Present listing is 000122110000001. There is still a guy there in his 40s who seems to be his brother. In 1850, William is here, single at age 61 born in England, and the rest went poof!

 

CLARK PUTNAMNorth East Township, Erie County

Still here, and now in his 70s. The listing is 01000000011010001. He is about 72, Mary Allen is 45, Mary Ann 13, Clark jr. 9 and Victoria 4. They will still be here in 1860. His eldest son, Joseph, is nearby.

 

DAVID PUTNAM (?)North East Township, Erie County

The listing is 10000100001. He is here in 1850 indexed as Pulman, and in 1860 as Palmer. Whichever, heís not a Putnam or Putman.

 

JOSEPH PUTNAMNorth East Township, Erie County

Clark's son. He is now listed as 1121001001101. He is in his 40s, his wife, Joanna Russell, in her late 30s.

 

NATHAN PUTNAMAmity, Erie County

The current listing is 1110001002001. He is in his 40s and his wife Nancy Trull in her 30s. They are here in 1850 and gone by 1860. Nathan was born in New Hampshire, Nancy in Massachusetts and the kids born in Richmond, Ontario County New York. They were there in 1830.

He married Nancy Trull in Lyndeborough on November 29, 1821.

 

PETER PUTNAMSpringfield, Erie County

The listing is 000000011101001. He is in his 50s. He is not near the other families here in Erie County. They are not here in 1850, and are in Erie County New York at that time. He is number 1468, a son of Joseph Putnam (583) and Anna Putnam, a cousin. He was born in Danvers, Massachusetts January 15, 1785.

William will die here on May 12, 1848, but Philena and the rest of the family will be here in 1850. Wait till 1850 for my listing of the kids and all that. Line is Ezra > Holyoke > Edward > Edward > Thomas > John.

 

JOHN PUTMANUnion Borough, Fayette County

This is in the SW part of the state. He might be Peter and Maria's son from Somerset County. Not certain, but I think he went here before going out to Ohio. Or he could be just about anybody. At any rate, the listing is 111001100001. Both are in their 30s with three young sons. This family is gone by 1850.

 

MOSES PUTNAMLocust Ward, Philadelphia County

He is listed 10000100001. He is in his 30s, his wife in her 20s. He is a son of William Putnam (2419) and Eleanor Henry. Moses was born in Middle Stewiacke, Nova Scotia May 23, 1810, and married Mary Beaton there December 13, 1838. They both will die before 1850, and two of their children, Israel and George Washington, will be here in the local orphanage in 1850.

 

CATHARINE PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

The widow of John Putman, Jr. is still here in her 50s now. The listing is 0000100000001. The son in his 20s is still with her, but I don't know his name. Neither of these folks are here or in Ohio in 1850, so I may never know. Sorry.

 

DAVID PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

A son of Peter and Maria Putman, German. Current listing is 0000001102001. He is in his 40s, Eva Barron in her 30s. The daughters are Rosanna 11, Phoebe 9 and Emma who was just born.

 

MICHAEL PUTMANMilford Township, Somerset County

The son of Peter and Maria Putman. Current status is 00100010100001. Both Michael and his wife Esther Landis are in their 40s. I do not believe they had any children, so do not know who the two youngsters are. In 1850, they are here and do not have any children.

 

CORNELIUS PUTMANDelmar Township, Tioga County

He is from the New York Dutch family. Based on the 1850 census, he is 28 NY and Cinderella is 26. His parents, John and Maria, are listed shortly. The current listing is 1100110001. The sons are Gideon 5 and Joseph 3, the daughter is Matilda now age 1.

 

JEROME (HENRY) PUTNAMCovington Township, Tioga County

This is interesting. He is NOT a son or brother of Thomas who has been here a while. He lives near Thomas, though. In later reports he is listed as being born in Massachusetts (1808), Harriet as being born in NY. The current listing shows them in their 30s now, so must be same family. The current listing is 200001020001. According to a descendant, he married Harriet Kiff at Kortwright, Delaware County New York on March 1, 1830. His dad Thomas was there in the 1820s and 1830s. The most reasonable line is this. Thomas Putnam came to Connecticut with his brother John in 1789 from the north of England, in Yorkshire. Thomas moved to Massachusetts and then in the early 1800s, went to Windsor, Windsor County Vermont. He had a son Jerome the right age. A descendant stated that the word ĎWindsorí popped up from time to time. Bingo! Eben was kinda vague on this family. He listed a son Henry and a son Jerome among others. He stated Henry moved to Otsego County New York and was a woolens manufacturer there in the late 1830s, and then in Niagara County NY by 1840. Otsego is just across the border from Tioga County. Henry and Jerome went to New York with their dad, and were in Delaware County in 1830. He calls himself Jerome here, but in 1850 he goes by Henry. His son is definitely named Jerome Henry. The dadís name was Thomas Henry, and he had a son Thomas Henry, jr. and now Jerome Henry. Seemed to just like the name Henry.

 

THOMAS PUTNAMCovington Township, Tioga County

The son of Elijah Putnam is still here and will be in 1850. The present listing is 212000010002101. He is in his 50s, Zilpha in her 40s.

 

JOHN PUTMANDelmar Township, Tioga County

He is a son of Adam Putman and Catherine Meyers from Montgomery County New York. Part of the Dutch family. He'll be here in 1850 so you can check out the family then. He is 51 and Maria is 40. His line goes back through Adam and Catherine to Jacob and Annie Newkirk to Victor Janse Putman and Grietje Mabie of Schenectady to Johannes Putman and Cornelia Brandt of Albany. Johannes or Jan was the original Dutch immigrant who came from Leydon, the Netherlands to Albany in 1661. Any way, the current listing is 1200001111001. The kids are William, Andrew, Solomon, Sally, Naoma and the eldest daughter who is married off by 1850.

 

DANIEL PUTNAMPine Grove Township, Warren County

He is the one listed properly as Daniel in 1830, but is indexed as David now. He is a son of Jesse and Rachel as I told you earlier. He was born February 21, 1794 and married Betsy January 1, 1822. The listing is 0111001211101. He will die in Russell, Warren County on November 8, 1847. And his widow Betsy Barrett Putnam and all the kids are here in 1850. The sons are Sidney, Perry and Theodore, the daughters Mary, Sarah, Almira and two that are married or at least gone by 1850. The Edson coming up shortly is his brother.

 

EDSON PUTNAMPine Grove Township, Warren County

One of Jesse and Rachel's sons. He was born November 25, 1797 in Guilford, Windham County Vermont. The listing is 1011001010101. He married Elizabeth Knapp in Vermont on April 4, 1820. They were in Concord, Niagara County New York in the 1820 census. They were here in Warren County in 1830. In 1850, he and his wife are not here, but there are a bunch of kids that must be theirs. Edson died November 10, 1845 and Elizabeth died around the same time. The kids listed then (with the ages they should be now) are Alex (the name is real tricky, in most census reports he is listed as Alvanda A. and in one as Alvin A., so I think he is Alvanda, but not certain), he is 15, Valentine 11, Amanda 7, Hiram 2. The older daughter is off and married by 1850 so I don't know her name.

 

JOSEPH PUTMANDonegal Township, Westmoreland County

He is a son of Andrew Putman Jr. from Somerset County. German family. He married Elizabeth Brunner and headed out to the southwest part of the State, where he will remain all his life. The present listing is 01000111001. He is 34, Elizabeth 29, a son about 6-7 who will die by 1850, Mary 4 and Hariett 1.

The oldest daughter isnít around in 1860 so donít know the right spelling. His wife Elizabeth and the kids are here in 1860 and Edwin is out in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1860. The whole gang is out there in 1865 and 1870 though.

 

HENRY PUTNAMGranville Township, Bradford County

He is 47 MA, Mary Saxton 46 NY, Erastus 22 NY, Philander (a son) 19 PA, Jane 15 PA, John 12 PA, Lora 9, Benjamin 8 PA. He is a son John who was here in 1830 and 1840. He will die before 1860, but Mary and most of the kids will still be here.

ALFRED PUTNAMRome Township, Crawford County

He is 25 NY, Sarah Beardsley, his wife, 22 NY and E. A. (Edwin) 1 PA. He is the eldest son of the upcoming Leonard Putnam who lives next door. There are three families all next to each other.

Ransom and Alfred will be the only ones still here in the 1860. Leonard will have died and Sallie will marry a Platt guy. Leonard, and the following Lewis are sons of John Putnam and Sabra Preston of Guilford, Windham County Vermont and later of Ellery Township, Chautauqua County New York.

In 1860, the children from James on down are listed as being born in PA, which makes more sense. Lewis and Leonard are brothers and probably came about the same time, although Lewis is not in the 1840 census that I can find. They both live close to each other here in Rome. Lewis was born after the family moved to New York. He was born February 18, 1810 in Ellery Township, Chautauqua County New York. He is, of course, another son of John and Sabra Putnam.

 

RANSOM PUTNAMRome Township, Crawford County

He is 23 NY, Fidelia 21 NY, Sidney 4/12 NY (probably PA) and a Philo P. Hall 22 NY, possibly Fidelia's brother. Near as I can figure is that Ransom and Alfred are sons of Leonard. They all live together. Leonard was here in 1840 and had sons listed the right ages. Ransom will be here in 1860 through 1880, but with a second wife, Nancy.

 

JOHN PUTNAMSparta Township, Crawford County

Norman is a sash maker. He is 44 NY, Margaret Kilpatrick 30 NY, Abey (Abigail) 10 NY, Henrietta 8 NY, Rose 1 NY. They are here in 1860, that's how I know his name is Norman. They just arrived. He came from Ontario County New York according to a descendant. Margaret is his second wife. The first two children are by wife number one Lucretia Warren who he married in Waterloo, New York September 10, 1828. Norman first appears in Waterloo, Seneca County New York next to his father David Putman. Not sure who David was, but EVERYONE in Seneca County was/is on the New York Dutch Line and spell their names Putman like he does. They are here in 1860 and then in Oil Creek, Venango County where he is widowed in 1870.

He is 68 NY, Lucy is 61 MA (NH in 1860). They are living with a C. P. Griswald. She will be here in 1860. I'm not certain about these folks. They are in Covington where Elijah and his son Thomas came. Thomas had a daughter named Lucy who was born August 11, 1788 and would be exactly 61 now and born in NH as it states in 1860. It just seems strange that two folks would just pop up right where Thomas was. He had another daughter, Christina who would be 58 NY if this was her listed as J. C. and the age was wrong. I have no idea, but this offers a few options.

 

LUCY PUTMANCovington Township, Tioga County

This is an error as she is listed Levi in the index. The name is Lucy and she is with the J. C. here and listed earlier. She is 61 MA (NH in 1860). See J. C. for some ideas on her. She lives with a Griswold family and will still be with them in 1860, but J. C. won't.
