!EZEKIEL PUTMAN, seems to be the youngest son of Barnet and
Sarah Putman, being born probably in Union Co., South Carolina
in the early 1770's. In the 1790 census Barnet is listed with 2
males under 16 and 5 females. I have no idea as to exactly who
these folks were. It is possible that Ezekiel and Laban were
still living at home with their father in 1790. I have yet to
discover the names of any of Barnet's daughters.

!I have a letter written by Reding Putman, 2nd., to William
Cobb, of
Elkins, West Virginia, dated 14 June, 1912. In this letter, a
request for details of family history, Reding writes, "Laban
Putman, was a brother of grandfather, Daniel Putman. Ezekiel
Putman, who married Hannah Braselton, was the son of Laban." I
have another letter from William Cobb, dated 1911, where he
firmly believes that Ezekiel and Laban were brothers. I agree
with the brother
relationship, as their ages seem to be within a few years of
each other on the census data. Also, Reding was vague on other
facts. He stated that he was not certain if his father was ever
in Indiana. This and other bits of Reding's writings lead me to
believe that he was not a great historian.

!At any rate, Ezekiel married Hannah Brazelton, in 1800, in
Anderson, South Carolina. Hannah as the daughter of Jacob
Brazelton, and Hannah Green, of Granville Co., North Carolina.
According to William Cobb, she was born on 24 June, 1781, in
North Carolina. However, her cemetery inscription in the
Hopewell Baptist Church Cemetery reads that she was born 20
March, 1783 and died 20 May, 1833. Jacob's father, John
Brazelton, was an immigrant from Wales who settled first in
Frederick Co., Maryland in 1740, and then moved to North
Carolina. For those interested, I have a rather complete
genealogy
of the Brazelton family in another of my books, "THE CANADAY
FAMILY HISTORY."

!I am not certain where Ezekiel and Hannah were married, but
they appeared in the 1800-1810 census in the Pendleton District
of South Carolina. At that time they had one son, probably
Elias, under ten years of age. This census was taken about
1805.

!1800 census: Pendleton District, South Carolina.
The listing is 10100 00100. They have one son at home.

!In the early 1800's, Ezekiel moved, with other members of his
family, to Warren Co., KY. On 8 November, 1808, he obtained
some 200 acres of land near his family in the Bowling Green
area of south central KY.

!Ezekiel is listed in the 1810 census of KY as living with his
wife
in Warren Co.. At that time they had 4 sons and 2 daughters
under the ages of 10 years.

!Ezekiel was in KY in August of 1817, when he signed a voucher
for $2.36 due him from his fathers estate. This was from his
brother, Daniel, who was the administrator of Barnet Putman's
estate.

!Two of Daniels sons, Hazeal and Reding, had returned to KY to
settle a land affair and had the voucher signed at that time.
This voucher was later recorded in the Gibson Co., Indiana
courthouse.

!In the letters of William Cobb, who was a descendant of
Ezekiel and a native of Georgia, he mentions that his father,
who married Ezekiel's daughter Rebecca told him that Ezekiel
Putman came to Georgia first in 1812, and moved back to KY
twice, before making Georgia his permanent home.

!Sometime in 1817, Ezekiel moved his family to Hall Co.,
Georgia for the final time. This time, his brother, Thomas and
his family went with them.

!There is a deed dated 17 October, 1808. (I believe this is a
typo and should be 1818, as Hall Co. was formed out of Jackson
Co. in the year of 1818.) This deed was listed in Thomas
Putman's book. It shows that Ezekial purchased land in Hall
Co., Georgia.

!1820 census: Hall Co., Georgia.
The listing was 220201 11110, which indicated they had 6 sons
and 3 daughters.

!There are other deeds which show that Ezekiel deeded land to
his son Elias, in Hall Co., in 1822

!Hannah died in 1823. She was buried in the Hopewell Baptist
Church Cemetery in Hall Co., Georgia.

!There are deeds which show that Ezekiel deeded land to his son
Daniel, in 1828.

!The records show that Ezekiel was married a second time. He
married Sarah Hestalye, in 1835, in Georgia.

!1840 census: Cass Co., Georgia.
Ezekiel is now married to Sarah Hestalye.

!According to William Cobb, Ezekiel spent the balance of his
life in
Georgia, and died there in 1845.

!Julia Vinson, a descendant of Ezekiel's brother, Thomas, has
supplied much of the information on the family of Ezekiel and
Hannah Putman.

!William B. Putman Jr., Hyannis Port, MA.

!Virtually nothing is known about the early life of Barnet
Putman. People estimate that he was born in Virginia, in the
early 1740 time period. I feel that Barnet was born in
Virginia, a son of Thomas Putman, and he went with his father,
Thomas Putman, to Granville Co., North Carolina, and married
there in the early 1760's.

!Daniel Putman, seems to be Barnet's eldest child, and Daniel
was born in January of 1764, probably in North Carolina.

!Several Putman researchers, myself included, feel that Barnet
is a family sur- name, and that Barnet's father probably
married a Barnet (or Barnard) woman, and named his son after
her family. This was quite common at the time.

!Thomas Putman, who I feel was BARNET's father, made a land
transaction, a deed of two acres, to the Baptist church, in
Granville Co., North Carolina, in 1761. JAMES BARNET, was a
witness to this transaction. It was most common for relatives
to act as witnesses on such matters. Barnets appear near the
Putman families throughout the 1700's in Virginia, North
Carolina and South Carolina.

!There was a John Barnett, listed next to Thomas Putman, in
1739, in the St. Marks Parish (Virginia) Vestry Book. Barnets
owned land near Putmans in North and South Carolina in the
1700's. A John Barnett, sold land to Thomas Putman, (Daniel's
son) in the Pendleton District of Anderson Co. in 1802. The
families seem to be commonly found together throughout the
1700's. It was also
extremely common to find families traveling to new areas
together. I assume the Putmans and the Barnets were good
friends and ventured out to new lands together for several
generations.

!The Barnard/Barnet family dates from the mid 1600's in
Gloucester Co., Virginia, and appears all through the Carolinas
in the 1700's. It was orignally spelled Barnard, Bernard and
most commonly Barnett or Barnet.

!"THE WILLIAM AND MARY QUARTERLY HISTORICAL MAGAZINE"; This
reference states that the name was most commonly pronounced
"BARNET" no matter how it was
spelled. The Barnets and the Putmans date back to Kingston
Parish, in Virginia at the same time, and very possibly were
friends and neighbors. In fact, the original Barnard family
goes back to Buckinghamshire, in England, at the same time and
place as William and Thomas Putnam. If Thomas Putman, married a
Barnard/Barnet in Virginia, he well may have named his son
after his mothers family. This is, of course, only speculation.

!The first recorded mention of Barnard or Barnet Putman, was in
a land grant of 300 acres in Berkley Co., South Carolina, to
Bernard Putman on 4 June, 1773, and recorded as a Colonial Plat
in Volume 19, Page 304, on 2 September, 1775. This is the only
record of the name being spelled "BERNARD", as all future
recordings use Barnette, Barnett or Barnet, which was the most
common spelling and the one used exclusively after 1780.

!Berkeley Co., at the time extended all the way inland from the
coast to the western border. Union Co. was formed out of old
Craven Co., which was in turn formed out of Berkeley Co..
Barnet was shown as being in Craven and Union Counties during
the Revolution. He more than likely never moved from his land
grant, It was simply that the location was in three different
counties at
three different times. The location of the grant was tied to
two rivers and their location is near Sedalia, in present Union
Co..

!The Land Grant to Barnard Putman reads:
"South Carolina: Pursuant to a Warrant directed under the hand
and seal of John Brenner, Esq. A Land Grant dated the 4th. day
of May, 1773 I have measured and laid out unto Barnard Putman,
a plantation or tract of land containing three hundred acres in
Berkeley Co. in the fork between Broad River and Saludy on the
south side of Tyger River and bounded northeastwardly by river,
southwestwardly by land laid out to Wiatt Wood and part vacant
land and southeastwardly by land laid out to Joseph Hopkins and
northwestwardly by vacant land and hath such shape form and
marks as is represented by the above plat certificate under my
hand this 4th. day of June 1773. (Signed)
Enoch
Pearson, D.S."

!The intersection of the Tyger and Broad Rivers is located in
the
southeast part of present day Union Co., near Sedalia, South
Carolina. Barnet therefore resided in the present Union Co.
from 1773 through the Revolution.

!While Barnet and his family were living in Union Co., the
Revolutionary War fighting came to the area. Barnet's eldest
son, Daniel Putman, my ancestor, joined the South Carolina
Militia in 1781 and served in the Regiment of Colonel Thomas
Brandon in the fighting of the siege of Fort Ninety-Six in
Pickard's Brigade. Young Daniel was barely 18 years old at the
time and was riding
a mare that belonged to his father, Barnet. The horse was lost
in battle, and Barnet placed a claim for its value. Barnet
received five pounds, fourteen shillings and three pence for
the loss. This record was attached to Daniel's service record.
Daniel's discharge date is unknown, but he was probably in
service about a year as the fighting then began to move
northward out of
South Carolina. As a result of this war service, Daniel
entitles all you folks to membership in the D.A.R. or the
S.A.R.

!On 22 November, 1784, a Baptist Church, The Church of Christ,
on the Tyger River was formed. Barnet Putman, was listed among
the first Deacons of that church. In 1803, the church was
renamed Padgett's Creek Baptist Church. Claude E. Sparks wrote
a history of Padgett's Creek Baptist Church and the minutes
show Barnet Putman, and W. Willbanks, were ordained on the same
day the church was organized. The first church was a crude log
structure located about a mile from where the present place of
worship stands today.

!In the rolls of Padgett's Creek Baptist Church, there are
several Putmans listed, including Thomas Putman, and his wife.
This Thomas Putman, may be Barnet's father. Barnet had a son
Thomas, but he was unmarried at that time, and Barnet had moved
out of the area in 1787.

!On 2 June, 1787, according to the church minutes, Barnet and
his wife were given their discharge papers so they could move
and be accepted in another church. Claude Sparks thinks that
Barnet's wife was Mary Putman, but nothing is shown to that
effect in the records. Very shortly thereafter, Barnet and his
family moved to the Pendleton District, near what is now known
as Anderson,
South Carolina.

!On 2 December, 1790, Barnet purchased 400 acres on the Branch
of the Generostee Creek, in Anderson, from William Love. Other
lands in the area were owned by John Barnett, and his wife
Jane, and by Amos and Winnie Barnett. Thes Barnetts living near
Barnet Putman, posssibly strengthen the theory that
Barnet Putman's mother was a Barnett.

!Daniel Putman, purchased adjacent lands on the Savannah River
from William love in 1792, and from Charles Bond in 1796. Other
children of Barnet; Thomas and Ezekiel bought and recorded fars
in the area in 1803 and 1803. There were obviously other land
transactions that were not recorded; Daniel has recorded a
sale of lands on the Generostee to his brother Thomas, but his
purchase of these lands was not recorded. At any rate, the
Putmans were well established on farms in the area in the
1790's and early 1800's.

!Nothing has been proven as to the identity of Barnet's wife.
As
mentioned previously, there is a possibility that Mary Putman,
was his wife. I feel that his wife was Sara Putman, In the 1800
South Carolina census, Barnet is listed with his wife and also
one female between 16 and 26, two females between 10 and
16, and a male between 16 and 26. I think the other family
living with him may have been Ezekiel and his family.

!1800 census: Pendleton District, South Carolina.
The listing is 00101 02101. They have one son and three
daughters at home.

!Barnet remained active in the Baptist Church. As soon as he
arrived in Anderson Co., he joined the Schockley's Ferry
Baptist Church. That church is today called Shilow Baptist
Church and is located a few miles from the Savannah River,
which seperates South Carolina from Georgia. Barnet was
appointed Deacon of that church and attended the South Carolina
Baptist Convention, in Charleston in 1795, as a delegate from
Schockley's Ferry Church.

!About 1804 or 1805, Barnet moved into Warren Co., KY, with his
sons, Daniel, Laban, Thomas, and Ezekiel to homestead in the
area of Bowling Green. On the 1st, of January, 1810, while he
was in Warren Co., KY, he was excused from paying taxes, due to
his old age and infirmities.

!Barnet was listed on the tax rolls in KY in 1804, 1806, and
1808.
In the 1809 book, there was listed a Sarah Putman, and then
Barnet's name with a line drawn through it and down the rest of
the page. There was no tax book in 1810. I have the feeling
that Barnet died in that year, and Sarah was his widow. I
believe that his wife survived, and went with everone else,
into Indiana. But again, there is no proof.

!In the 1810 KY census, there is no Barnet listed, but there is
a
Sarah Putman, listed as a widow, living in Warren Co. with 3
young males, and a 26 to 45 year old female. Barnet has dropped
out of the picture at this time and this very possibly could be
his wife and the other female could be Lavinia Putman. Lavinia
never married and at times moved in with relatives to take care
of Barnet, Prudence, and Reding's family. This seems to make
the
most sence and my guess is that Sarah was Barnet's wife.

!1810 census: Warren Co., KY.
The listing is 3000 00011. Sarah has three sons and one
daughter at home.

!The exact date of Barnet's death is uncertain, but he was in
his late seventies. He died before eldest son Daniel, as Daniel
requested that Ezekiel Putman, be paid $2.36 as the remainder
of Barnet's estate. Daniel was the administrator of Barnet's
estate and had not quite settled the estate when he, himself,
died in 1816.

!Some researchers feel, Thomas Russell Putman, included, that
Barnet and his wife had 7 sons, Laban, Elias, William, Ezekiel,
Daniel, Willis, and Thomas, probably all born in Virginia or
North Carolina. Corrine Mehringer, felt that there were also
two daughters, Elizabeth and Sarah, but I have seen no record
of them at all. Tracking daughters is hard, as they rarely own
land and once they are married they became anonymously merged
with the husband's family.

!I am not convinced that Barnet and his wife had that many
children. I can satisfactorily account for four males: Daniel,
Ezekiel, Laban, and Thomas Putman. As mentioned earlier,
daughters are hard to track, but Barnet had 5 females living
with him according to the 1790 census, one of which would most
likely have been his wife. As to the other four, I am just not
certain

!1790 census: Pendleton District, South Carolina.
Barnet is listed with his wife, two sons and four daughters at
home.

!Barnet's family seems to have been a very close knit one. They
lived near each other and traveled to new lands together.
Becaus of this, I am convinced that William, Elias and Willis
are part of the North Carolina branch, and sons of Benjamin
Putman. Further, I can find no records of these Putmans, other
than William, in South Carolina where numerous records of the
other children appear. Thomas was in South Carolina at the same
time as Barnet.
Benjamin remained in North Carolina. I personally feel that
Benjamin and Barnet were brothers born in Virginia or North
Carolina in the 1730's.

!To make things more confusing; Thomas Russell Putman, mentions
in passing, tha Barnet may have had a son named Philemon. I
have parts of a hand written letter dated in Fayetteville,
Arkansas, 23 February, 1922. This was written by Anna Elizabeth
Putman, a daughter of Reding and Elizabeth Putman. Anna was a
school teacher in Arkansas. Of this letter, only pages 1,2,3,
and 6
remain, so things are a bit sketchy. It refers to: "... a bible
in father's handwriting (Reding II). Grandfather's given name
was Daniel, he had three brothers, Laban, Philemon and Ezekiel
His (Daniel's) father's name was Barnett." It goes on to list
Daniel's family birthdates as shown in the pension record and
ultimately Anna's bible, which I have a copy of. That makes two
mentions of Philemon Putman, and I have not a single scrap of
information on him. On the other hand, this list leaves out
Thomas, and I am certain he was one of Daniel's brothers.
Nothing is simple, is it?

!PHILEMON PUTMAN, no information on him. He is mentioned at
least twice by William B. as a possible son of Barnet. I have
placed him here so as not to lose him. Some future research may
confirm his being Barnet's son.
