CENSUS REPORTS

1836  -  1900

 

UPDATED APRIL 11, 2013

 

There was a territorial census taken in 1836, 1840 and 1846. The 1840 listed the family by age and sex groups, as opposed to the 1836 and 1846, which simply list the heads of households. From 1850 on, we get the Federal reports, which list everyone (if they are properly indexed).

 

WISCONSIN 1836 TERRITORIAL CENSUS

 

EZRA PUTNAM  Crawford County

In 1850, we find he is from New York and born about 1800 to 1801. Not sure who he is though.

 

 

WISCONSIN 1840 TERRITORIAL CENSUS

 

E. (EZRA) PUTNAM  Prairie du Chein, Crawford County

He is Ezra Putnam from New York. He’s been here a while and will be here in 1850. The listing is 100012 and no females are listed. Ezra is in his 40s (actually 39). Also there is another male in his 40s and one in his 30s and a small boy. The older ones must be brothers and one of the brother’s sons the youngster.

The present listing is 00002  1001. The other guy is his brother Erastus Putnam. Horace and Erastus are in their 20s, his wife Mary is in her late teens and they have a fairly new daughter, Hannah. In 1850 and 1860 he lists himself as a teamster. By 1870, he has settled into farming in Jackson County, Michigan.

Jonathan was born July 29, 1770 in Wilton New Hampshire, and died here in Big Bend Wisconsin October 27, 1839. Abigail will die here on September 19, 1845. This line goes back from Jonathan (1845) > Nathaniel (number 762) > Jacob > Nathaniel > Benjamin > Nathaniel > John.

WISCONSIN 1850 CENSUS

 

JOHN PUTNAM  District 36, Calumet County

John is listed as 22 NY and lives by himself.

 

EZRA PUTNAM  Prairie du Chien, Crawford County

He is listed as 49 NY.  His wife, Mariah, is listed as 52 MD.  They seem to have just been married, as he didn’t list a wife back in 1840. There are no children listed.

 

GEORGE PUTMAN  Sun Prairie, Dane County

George is listed as 20 NY. He is lodging with the Thomas Atkins family. Mary Jane Atkins (26 NY) must be his sister. In 1860, Mary Jane’s mother, Betsy Putman 68 VT will be with them.

 

J. (JOHN) P. PUTNAM  Madison Village, Dane County

He is in Sauk County in 1860 and that’s how I know his first name. He is here listed J. P. 31 VT.  His wife, Lucy Hyde, is 23 NH.  Their daughter, Ellen, is 2 WI. He is a well driller and has two other well drillers living with him. In 1860 they are in Sauk County and he calls himself a mechanic. At any rate he is a son of Jonathan Putnam (1952) and Mary Stockwell of Bradford, Orange County, Vermont. He married Lucy here in Wisconsin in 1843. He will be here through the 1880, but will have a new wife Ida C. Rich by 1880.

 

JOHN PUTNAM  Oregon, Dane County

John is listed as 30 NY.  His wife, Catherine, is 29 NY.  The children are: Loran (looks like Lawson in 1860) is 6 NY, Harper (Isaac in 1860) 4 NY, and Sylvester 1 WI.

 

SELM PUTNAM  Ashippun, Dodge County

He is listed as 7 IL and living with a Carrier family from New York. He will still be here in 1860 with this family. I think Selim or Selem is right, that’s how it’s spelled in 1870 when he is in Waushara County, Wisconsin. Anyway, Joanna Carrier 25 NY would be his mother. Rand Putnam found a record that states Selim (born in Lake County Illinois November 17, 1840 is the son of S. S. Putnam (born May 30, 1813 in New Hampshire and died December 7, 1841 in Illinois) and Joanna Hamilton. There is an official marriage record of Selem Putnam marrying Joanna Hamilton in Lake County Illinois on October 19, 1841. The dates are off, but S. S. may have been Selem as well. At any rate Selem will marry Susan Wheeler and be here in Wisconsin, mostly in Waushara County through 1910 when he is 70 years old.

 

JOHN PUTNAM  Lamartine, Fond du Lac County

John is listed as 50 NY and a farmer.  His wife, Eve Lepper, is 40 NY.  The children are: Hamilton (John Hamilton) 21 NY, Justin M. 18 NY, and Joseph 14 NY. They were married in Montgomery County New York on January 31, 1818. They are here in 1860 too. They owned land in DeWitt, Onondaga County New York and sold it in 1845 and moved here. He would be somehow connected to Aaron Putman from there and from Cayuga County before that. There was also a John Putman back in Cayuga County in 1820 and 1830 that would be him. At any rate, they are Dutch folks.

 

JONATHAN W. PUTNAM  District 24, Grant County

He is 35 NY, Sarah C. Walter 28 VT and Walter A. 2 WI. He is listed as being a Clergyman. He should be a son of Cornelius Putnam 4th and Happy Miller, his first wife.

RHODA PUTMAN  Wausau, Marathon County

Rhoda is listed as 21 ME. She is living with the Walrod family from New York. This is a lumber camp. She’ll be marred here in 1860. She is a daughter of Simeon Walker and Rhoda Putnam.

Also in the household is his mother, Lucinda Eggleston Putnam, 52 NY. He is a son of Peter and Lucinda Putnam. Peter was number 2442, a son of Caleb Putnam. He was born in Bloomfield, Ontario County, New York and then was with his folks in Niagara County in 1830 and 1840. He will be in Marshall County, Illinois in the 1860 census, and in St. Louis, Missouri in 1870 and 1880.

 

AARON PUTNAM  Dover, Racine County

Aaron is listed as 44 NY.  His wife, Maria, is 34 NY, William 16 NY, Josephine 12 NY, Harriett (listed Annette in 1860) 9 WI, Mary 6 WI and Eugene (listed Herbert in 1860) 2 WI. He is a farmer.

BARNARD PUTTMAN (PUETTMANN) Burlington, Racine County

Barnard is listed as 23 GER.  His sister or possibly a first wife Gertrude is 20 GER. Also in the household is their father, John, 64 GER. I find him in 1860 in Winneshiek County, Iowa and then again in 1900 at age 73. Based on an article in a German Newspaper in Iowa.  The family came over here in 1845 from Westphalia, Germany. Barnard was born in Dorsten Westphalia on January 9, 1828. He came with his parents to Wisconsin in April 1845. He will marry Sybilla Timp here on April 27, 1852. In 1856 they will move to Winneshiek County Iowa.

 

EDWIN PUTNAM  Racine, Racine County

Edwin is listed as 32 PA.  His wife, Sarah Campbell, is 30 IL.  The children are: Thomas E. 4 IL, Amanda 2 WI, and William 9/12 WI. He is a blacksmith and also has four laborers living with him. I have a guess here. He married Sarah in Knox County, Illinois on July 12, 1837. I think Edwin is the eldest son of Thomas Putnam and Hannah Huntington of Covington, Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Eben states he has no further record, but we do know his brother Samuel Morris Putnam came to Minnesota as a government surveyor in the 1850s and died here in 1857. Several others of his children moved out to northern Illinois. I’ll go out on a limb and say Edwin is indeed Tom’s kid.  Edwin then would be number 2452 and Thomas is number 1091 in Eben’s book. The line goes Edwin > Thomas > Elijah > Samuel > Thomas > Thomas > Thomas > John.

 

A. F. (ALONZO FRANKLIN) PUTMAN  Beloit, Rock County

Daniel was born January 17, 1792 and will die here July 23, 1852. In 1860, Rebecca will be widowed here with these two sons. Rebecca was born June 16, 1793 and will die here September 30, 1864. He is number 1834 in Eben’s book. His father was Daniel number 756. The line is Daniel > Daniel > Amos > John > Nathaniel > John.

He is 32 NY, Harriet 38 OH, Henrietta 10 OH, Catherine 8 OH, Jane G. 6 OH, Samuel E. 4 OH and John 2 OH. I can’t locate them in Ohio in 1840, but it is possible they were living with his folks at the time. He is listed as being an innkeeper.

He is 38 NS (Nova Scotia), Rosianna 27 NS, Lydia 9 NS, Martha 7 NS, Prescott 5 NS and William 2 WI. He is a shoemaker. The next John is his brother. Best we can figure, they are from the Pugwash Harbor area in Nova Scotia. There are three other non-Putnam families here all from the same town in Canada. The best bet, based on Jane Wile’s book on Nova Scotia Putnams, is that these are children of William Putnam, Jr. and Eleanor Henry.
