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

!DANIEL PUTMAN, was my great-great-great-great grandfather and
fortunately his life was the best documented of all Barnet
Putman's children.

!Daniel Putman, was born on 1 January, 1764, probably in
Granville Co., North Carolina, though possibly in Virginia. A
copy of his family's birth dates, written in his own
handwriting, was attached to his widow's Revolutionaey War
Pension request. This is on file in Washington, D.C.. This list
of dates was then transcribed into a family bible, which was
owned by Anna
(Putman) King.

!Daniel moved with his father, Barnet, and his fanily, to South
Carolina in about 1773. They settled first in Berkeley Co., in
what is now Union Co., near Sedalia, South Carolina.

!It was while living in Union Co. that the American
Revolutionary War came to his doorstep. In 1781, young Daniel,
barely 18 years old, was given a mare by his farther, and rode
off to join the Regiment headed by Colonel Thomas Brandon, in
Pickard's Brigade of the South Carolina Militia. He was joined
by his uncle, John Putman, who was a Captain in the same
Regiment. He
fought in the siege at Fort Ninety-Six in June of 1781.

!Fort Ninety-Six was so called because it was ninety-six miles
from the Keowee Trading Post, on Lake Keowee, on the borders of
North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.

!Young Daniel remained in the service until 1782, when the war
moved further north in it's last years. Barnet's mare was
somehow lost in the fighting and Daniel's father was given five
pounds, fourteen shillings and three pence as compensation for
the loss.

!The siege of Ninety-Six was an interesting and rather
important turning point in the Revolution. The Fort Ninety-Six
was occupied by the British sympathizing Americans, under
Colonel John Harris Cruger, of NY, and was the southernmost
outpost in 1781, as the war was moving northwards towards it's
conclusion in Virginia. The British had decided that it was
best to pull up stakes and get out of the area in order to
consolidate their forces in Virginia. Just as they were set to
abandon the fort without a fight, the Americans showed up and
began the siege. The Americans under General Greene, had some
1100 men and outnumbered Cruger's 500 men, but the large
earthen fort was not to be taken. The British forces fought off
the Americans and the Americans pulled back to Winnsboro. Then
after the battle was over, the
British did as they had originally planned, they got up and
left.

!The American defeat turned victorious as the British left.
Now, the whole thing could have avoided if the Americans had
simply stayed out of the way and let the British retreat. But,
then without the battle, Ole Dan'l would not have had any place
in the fight, and would have missed out on being an honest to
goodness veteran of the Revolutionary War.

!Daniel's service record, number W26751, is in Washington,
D.C.. It is documented so that his female descendants are
elgible for membership in the Daughters of the American
Revolution, and males in the Sons of the American Revolution.

!1790 census: Pendleton District, South Carolina.
Daniel and Prudence had one son and one daughter at home.

!I have no information whether Daniel and Prudence lived with
his parents or whether he had a seperate farm in the area.
However, on 27 August, 1792, Daniel purchased a 225 acre
plantation on the banks of the Savannah River, near Anderson,
in the old Pendleton District of South Carolina. He later
bought an adjoining tract in 1796. At this time his father, and
most of his family, had
moved to the western section of South Carolina.

!While living in Union Co., Daniel and Prudence had three
children
born to them: Hazeal Putman, born 7 May, 1787; Lavinia Putman,
born 7 November, 1789; Reding Putman, born 20 April, 1792.

!In Anderson, Daniel studied and read quite a bit. All of
Barnet's
children were quite literate and well educated for the times.
Daniel farmed and worked in the family blacksmith shop. By
1800, he had studied enough law to become an attorney. He
helped adminster land deals, wills, and had power of attorney
granted him by several people, according to recorded sources.
He was later to
become a Judge in both KY and Indiana.

!While living in Anderson, Daniel and Prudence had three more
children: Elijah, born 18 May, 1794; William, born 15 March,
1796; Thomas, born 30 July,

!1800 census: Pendleton District, South Carolina.
The listing is 41110 10010. They have six sons and one daughter
at home. I do not have any idea who the extra son might be, if
he is a son.

!Daniel heard of new opportunities in KY and in 1802, he
obtained
some 200 acres of land near the town of Bowling Green, in
Warren Co., in central KY. It would appear that he contracted
for the land before going to KY; perhaps it was a land grant
for service in the Revolution.

!About 1804, Daniel, his father Barnet, his brothers, Thomas,
Laban and Ezekiel, all made the overland trip to KY. In those
times it was common for several families to migrate together
for both protection and for companionship. The Putmans were
accompanied by several other families that figured prominently
in the Putman lives. Some of these families were: several
Skelton families; Dolly Combs and her family, her husband
Bennet had died in 1801, in Anderson Co.; John Holcombe and
others of his family; the Duffs, some Barnets and perhaps other
friends.

!These families arrived in KY about 1804, and began
homesteading. On 13 January, 1805, Daniel and Prudence had
another child: Ezekiel, who died as an infant, 14 months later.

!Daniel Putman, received land grants in 1807, for 330 more
acres, and another in 1807, for 400 acres, and in 1808, a grant
for another 200 acres.
Thomas Putman, received a grant for 90 acres in 1807 as well.
By 1808, Daniel owned several parcels of land in excess of
1,000 acres and in the same year was appointed Justice of the
Peace, by the Governor.

!On 1 January, 1810, Daniels father, Barnet, was exonerated
from paying Co. taxes due to his "Old age and infirmities." The
tax roll for 1810 shows his name, but there is a line drawn
through it, and across the remainder of the page. I feel he
died fairly early in 1810.

!Daniel's eldest son, Hazeal, married a daughter of Dorothy
(Dolly) Combs, Isabel Combs, on 18 October, 1806. Another son,
Reding, was to marry another Combs daughtrer, in Indiana in
1812. Another son, Elijah, was to marry a grandaughter of
Dolly's, as well. He married Elizabeth Duff, in Gibson Co.,
Indiana, in 1817.

!By 1810, Daniel was hearing of new opportunities in the
Western
Territories, of Indiana. Daniel sold several parcels of his
land to Moses Hunt, and he and his brother, Ezekial, signed a
$1,000 injunction bond for the titles in Bowling Green, on 15
June, 1811.

!Virtually the entire group of South Carolinians moved in 1811,
to south western Indiana, into what was then Knox Co.. Daniels
two brothers, Ezekiel and Thomas, and their families, remained
in Warren Co., but it seems most everyone else headed for
Indiana.

!According to "HISTORY OF GIBSON CO. INDIANA"; Tartt;
Daniel and the rest arrived in Indiana about 1809 or 1809, but
it would appear they did not arrive until the summer of 1811.
The date of 1811 is based on the fact that Daniel was still in
Bowling Green, KY in July of 1811.

!Almost immediately the families were caught up in the various
Indiam uprisings, agitated by the British, which precipitated
the War of 1812. Daniel's two eldest sons, Hazeal and Reding,
and his brother, Laban Putman, joined the Indiana Militia,
under Govenor William Henry Harrison. They fought the Indians
at the Battle of Tippicanoe on 7 November, 1811. This was
officially considered war service in the War of 1812, for you
history
buffs. Governor Harrison was an extremely popular figure in the
area, and Hazeal, as well as many others, named one of his sons
Harrison, in his honor. Hazeal remained roughly connected with
the nilitia, and was commissioned a Lieutenant in 1813. I do
not believe they were involved in any further fighting after
the Battle of Tippicanoe.

!"THE EXECUTIVE JOURNAL FOR THE INDIANA TERRITORY 1800-1816."

!Daniel continued to practice law in indiana, and was one of
the leaders of the 1812 effort to carve a new Co. out of the
huge Knox Co.. In 1813, Gibson Co., Indiana was formed and
Daniel was commissioned a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas,
for Gibson Co., 1 April, 1813. Hazeal was commissioned a
Justice of the Peace, for Gibson Co., 13 May, 1813. On 7
January, 1814,
Daniel was appointed 3rd. Judge of the Circuit Court, for
Gibson Co.. Nepotism being what it is, son William was paid
$2.25, for his services as the Bailiff at the October Court
Term.

!Daniel Putman made out his will and had it notarized on 15
July, 1814. The will was written in longhand and filed at the
Co. Courthouse in Princeton, Gibson Co., Indiana.

!Daniel's promising political career and rich life came to an
end on 19 July, 1816, on his plantation near Princeton. As he
had not finished administering his fathers will at the time of
his death, it can be assumed, Barnet had died shortly before.

!Daniel Putman's Estate Sale took place on 28 August, 1816.
Several members of the family, including his son, Thomas,
purchased items. Thomas must have himself died very shortly
thereafter, as Hazeal Putman, as co-executor, paid John Macey
$1.50 for helping make two coffins, for Daniel and his son
Thomas.

!Records seem to indicate there was a bad influenza epidemic at
that time, which killed a great many people in the aeea. It
would seem both Daniel and his son, Thomas, did succomb to this
outbreak.

!After the estate was settled, Daniel's wife, Prudence, moved
in with her son, William Putman. On 28 June, 1821, Prudence
Putman, married Landon Key, a widower and Revolutionary War
veteran from Virginia, who was living in Gibson Co. at that
time. Unfortunately, Landon Key, died some eight weeks later on
24 August, 1821. Prudence Key, then moved back with her son,
William, and later accompanied William and Reding, and their
families, into IL, and finally to Arkansas where she died in
1847 or 1848. She made her only pension request in 1846. She
appears to be living with Reding in 1840, and was staying with
him until the time of her death.

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

!THOMAS PUTMAN, born in the late 1760's or the early 1770's. He
moved with his parents to South Carolina, in 1773. He again
moved with the family to Anderson, Pendleton District, South
Carolina in 1792. Sometime, just after 1800, Thomas married
Mary Barton, a daughter of Bavester and Elizabeth Barton,
probably while in Pendleton Co., South Carolina.

!Thomas purchased two parcels of land along the "B" branch of
Generostee Creek, on 27 May, 1802. He bought one parcel from
his brother, Daniel, and the other from John Barnett.

!Thomas and Mary joined the family exodus to Bowling Green,
Warren Co., KY. He acquired lands there in 1804. He was joined
by his brother, Laban, and shortly afterwards by his father,
Barnet, his brother, Daniel, and his family, plus assorted
members of the Combs, Duff, Skelton, Holcomb and other families
from Pendleton Co., South Carolina.

!1810 census: Warren Co., KY.
Thomas and Mary have two sons and two daughters listed, all
under ten years of age. The listing is 20010 20010.

!By 1812, Thomas' father Barnet, his brother, Daniel, and the
others have all moved northward into southern Indiana.

!Thomas and his family remained in KY until sometime in 1817,
when they, along with his brother, Ezekiel and his family, all
moved to Hall Co., Georgia, in the general area north of
Gainsville, Georgia.

!1820 census: Hall Co., Georgia.
Thomas, Mary and eight children are listed in 1820: 320001
21010.

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

!LABAN PUTMAN, was probably born in the 1770's in Union Co.,
South Carolina. There are no recorded land records for Laban in
South Carolina, as he eas perhaps too young to have his own
farm. He first appears on a land grant in Warren Co., KY, in
1802 and on a deed in Warren Co., KY on 7 January, 1805.

!He seems to have migrated to KY several years earlier than the
rest of the Putman family. According to "HISTORY OF TRIGG CO.,
KY"; Laban Putman, was married to Elizabeth or Betsy Young, 1
March, 1800, in Livingston Co., KY. This is in a book of
records from Trigg Co., which was later carved out of
Livingston Co.. There are two references to this marriage, one
in 1800 and one in 1805; I do not know which one is correct.
Livingston and Trigg Counties are west of Warren Co., yet he
was with the rest of the family in Warren Co., KY in 1802. I
would assume therefore that the 1800 date is correct.

!There is a Laban Putman, listed in the first tax list of
Caldwell Co.,
KY, in the year of 1809. He is carried on the Warren Co., KY
tax list of 1803,1805,and 1806, but not any later.

!Laban remained in KY with his father and brothers until about
1810, when the whole family moved to an area near Princeton,
Indiana, in what was then Knox Co.. He joined the Indiana
Volunteers and fought, along with Daniel's sons, Reding and
Hazeal, under William Henry Harrison, at the Battle of
Tippicanoe on 7 November, 1811.

!Laban was listed on the 1820 Indiana census as living in
adjacent Warrick Co., which was carved out of Knox Co. in 1813.
He is listed under males 26 to 44, his wife is under females of
the same age group, and they had listed 1 son under 10 years, 1
son between 10 and 15, 4 daughters under 10, and one daughter
between 10 and 15 years of age.

!1820 census: Warrick Co., Indiana.
The listing is 110010 41010. They have two sons and five
daughters at home.

!Laban is listed in the 1830 census in White Co., IL, which is
on the southern Indiana border, not far from Warrick Co.,
Indiana. It is felt that he died in IL sometime after 1830.
There is no mention of Laban Putman, in the 1840 census of
either IL or Indiana.

!1830 census: White Co., IL, p 34.
The listing is 0101101 0012001. They have 3 sons and 3
daughters at home.

!There is however, a Jane Putman listed in Cane Creek Township,
Gallatin Co., IL, in the 1840 census. The 1850 IL census list a
Laban Putman, 14 years old, in Cane Creek Township, Gallatin
Co., IL. He is living with the family of Joseph Pierce.
Gallatin Co. lies next to White Co., IL.

!Perhaps Jane Putman was a second wife, or an older daughter
who was head of the household after Laban died, or even a widow
of one of Laban's sons.

!The Laban Putman, in Cane Creek, in 1850 may have been his
son, or more likely a grandson.

!From the above information we can be reasonably certain that
Laban and Elizabeth had at least 2 sons and 5 daughters born to
them by the census of 1820, in Warrick Co., Indiana, prior to
their migration across the border into White Co., IL.

!THOMAS PUTMAN, was born sometime around 1720 in Essex Co.,
Virginia. He would have married, probably in Culpeper Co.,
Virginia, around the early 1740's. He more than likely married
a Barnet woman..

!There were two seperate Thomas Putmans, at this time. There is
a record of a Thomas Putman, in St. Marks Parish, Culpeper Co.,
Virginia, in 1739, and Another record of a Thomas Putman,
listed in the kingston Parish, now in Mathews Co., Vestry Book,
in 1740. The Thomas of Culpeper Co. is, I think, Zachariah's
son, and the Thomas in Kingston Parish, is the older Thomas
Putman, (4th.). I hope you realize I am the one who is
numbering these various
Thomas Putmans.

!There was a branch of the Putman family that went into North
Carolina headed by Thomas Putman, in the mid 1700's. This
Thomas most likely was the Thomas Putman, from Culpeper Co.,
Virginia. After Zachariah junior died in Culpeper Co., in 1753,
there were no further mentions of Thomas Putman in Virginia. I
think he left after his brother, Zachariah's, death, and went
directly south into Granville Co., on the North Carolina
border. This Thomas Putman, appears there in 1754, both in a
land purchase and the
Militia Rolls.

!In the book "COLONIAL SOLDIERS OF THE SOUTH"; Murtie June
Clark. A private Thomas Putman, is listed in the Regiment of
Colonel William Eaton, in Sugan or Sugar Jones' Company, in
Granville Co., on 8 October, 1754.

!On 27 August, 1754, Thomas Putman, purchased 310 acres on the
north side of Sandy Creek, Granville Co.. The deed was made to
Thomas Putmond, but later states: "this is the land whereon
Putman now lives." in 1761, Thomas sold 7 acres and this deed
was witnessed by James Barnet, which further ties the Putmans
with the Barnets in Virginia and the Carolinas. James Barnet,
was also in the same militia company as Thomas Putman. Also in
1761, Thomas deeded 2 acres of his land for a Baptist meeting
house.

!Thomas Putman, was married by this time, undoubtedly to a
Barnet woman, probably a daughter of James Barnet, and had at
least one son, Benjamin by 1766, as Benjamin is listed in the
tax roll at that time. In my opinion, he also had two other
sons, Barnet and John, but this is only a guess. They would
have been older brothers, and both were in South Carolina by
this time.

!It would appear that Thomas divided the remaining 300 acres
among his three sons. Benjamin sold his 100 acres on 3
February, 1770. The other two sons had moved to South Carolina.

!On 25 February, 1772, Thomas sold the remaing 200 acres of
this land on the north side of Sandy Creek. The deed was
witnessed by his son, Benjamin, who had lived on the land
adjacent to Thomas on part of the original acreage.

!On 23 December, 1774, John Putman, of Craven Co., South
Carolina, signed a memorial for three tracts of land in North
Carolina, one being the two hundred acres on Sandy Creek. This
indicates that John had a title claim on the property that had
to be cleared up. It, in my opinion, solidifies my feelings
that the John Putman, who was later to become a Baptist
minister in South
Carolina, was the son of Thomas Putman. We know Thomas had a
son John, but people have been uncertain as to which John
Putman it was. I feel this ties him in to Thomas Putman. Also,
when Barnet Putman, left his land grant in Union Co., South
Carolina, it was this very John Putman, who had taken it over.
This, in my opinion, ties the family of Thomas and John and
Barnet, somewhat reasonably together.

!Private John Putman, listed on the muster roll of Captain
Jodin Harper, in the North Carolina Militia, in 1772. I am not
certain who this John Putman is, but I am assuming he is Thomas
Putman's son.

!The last mention of a Thomas Putman, in North Carolina, was
when he sold his land in Bute Co. in 1772. Thomas' son Benjamin
witnessed this deed.

!Benjamin remained in North Carolina for the rest of his life.

!A Thomas Putman appears in the 1790 and 1800 South Carolina
census, living in the Ninety-Six District, of Pendleton Co.,
with his wife, both over 45 years old in 1790. I think that
Thomas Putman, left North Carolina in 1772, and went to South
Carolina with his children, where he remained for the rest of
his life.

!1790 census: Pendleton District, South Carolina. Just he and
his wife home.

!1800 census: Pendleton District, South Carolina.
The listing is 00001 00000. Thomas is alone, a widower.

!THE CHILDREN OF THOMAS PUTMAN:
The following are, I Believe, the three sons and a daughter of
Thomas Putman: John, Barnet, Benjamin, and Patsy. I am only
positive about Benjamin, this being based on old deeds, which
make this connection. As to Barnet, John and Patsy, I am only
making calculated guesses, based on what I know, and also on
what I do not know.

!Then there is a daughter, as near as I can figure. In the
ARKANSAS FAMILY HISTORIAN"; 1978. There is a family chart of
the Goss/Hardin family. It begins with a Thomas Goss senior,
who married Frances or Fanny Sherman about 1750, both being
born in the 1730's. The eldest child was Thomas Goss Junior,
who married Patsy Putman, in about 1776. Thomas was born about
1753, and Patsy was born about 1755. I am guessing she was one
of Thomas Putman's daughters.

(BillPutman@aol.com)
Page: William B. Putman Jr., Hyannis Port, MA.

!BENJAMIN PUTMAN, born about 1750. He was first mentioned as a
minor on a tax list for Bute Co., North Carolina in 1766. He is
mentioned along with Thomas Putman, as his father, so this
relationship is well established.

!By the latter part of 1766, Benjamin's signature is found as a
witness on a deed. This indicates that by 1766, he was over the
legal age of sixteen. This would place his birth about 1750. He
was married sometime in the latter part of the 1760's. His wife
was named Elizabeth. It is my feeling that she was Elizabeth
Griggs, daughter of John and Mary Griggs, who lived nearby.
(William Putman, Benjamin's son, had witnessed a deed for John
Griggs in 1788).

!In 1770, Benjamin, and his wife Elizabeth, sold 100 acres of
land in Bute Co.. This was part of the 310 acres that his
father, Thomas, had originally purchased in 1754.

!Please note the above: (This would indicate that Benjamin and
Elizabeth were married by 1770, or sooner. However, it must not
have been much sooner, or Benjamin's birth year will have to be
moved back before 1750. (W.T.P.)

!Benjamin is mentioned in many land transactions and tax lists
in Bute Co., North Carolina through the year 1778. In 1779,
Franklin Co. was formed out of Bute Co., and Benjamin's lands
were in the new Franklin Co.. This was typical of the times;
the land remained the same, but the Co. boundaries and names
changed as the population expansion forced counties to divide
into more
manageable units.

!The 1784 and 1786 census reports both show Benjamin and
Elizabeth with seven sons and two daughters. In the 1790
census, Benjamin is shown as living alone in the Tar River
District of Granville Co.. The writing on the original report
is unclear. Benjamin did have children still living with him,
and more than likely, Elizabeth was still alive at the time.
However, the 1790 census
also shows a Benjamin Portman, with seven males and four
females. This is undoubtedly "Our" Benjamin Putman. There was
also a William Portman, in Burke Co., and he was most likely
William Putman, Benjamin's son, who was also unlisted in the
1790 census under the proper spelling.

!In 1789, both benjamin, and his son, William Putman, were on a
list of insolvent debts in the estate of General Thomas Person.
This was listed in the Warren Co. Will book # 12. Warren Co.
was formed when Bute Co. was discontinued in 1779. They were
probably listed as insolvent as they had moved by this time to
Rutherford Co., in the southern part of the state.

!In the 1800 census, Benjamin is living in Rutherford Co. with
Elizabeth and five others, two males and three females.

!In the 1810 census, North Carolina, Benjamin is listed as
still living in Rutherford Co.. Elizabeth was still listed.
Only the two of them were living at home. They both seem to
have died before 1820, as they are not listed in that census.
However, they may have moved in with one of their children. I
have no death dates for either one of them.

!Benjamin and Elizabeth Putman, had seven sons and at least
three daughters. The children would all have been born in Bute
Co., and then they had moved as a family to Rutherford Co. by
1790. I am positive about Elias, Willis, John and Thomas. I
feel that William, Wilson and Griggs, were the other of his
sons. The first five named sons all remained in North Carolina,
Wilson and Griggs went to Tennessee, and then into northeast
Alabama, in the early
1800's.

!There was a North Carolina census, made from the tax data
during the period from 1784 to 1787. In this report, Benjamin
listed seven sons and two daughters. The aforementioned seven
sons ties in nicely.

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

!JOHN PUTMAN, born 29 June 1751, Culpeper Co., Virginia. When
he was an infant, he traveled with his parents to North
Carolina. His father, in my opinion, was Thomas Putman.

!Many people have felt that this John Putman, was the fourth
son of Zachariah Putman, of Culpeper Co., Virginia. I feel this
was not the case. By going over the old deeds in North
Carolina, we find that Thomas Putman, and his family settled on
the north side of Sandy Creek, on 200 acres, in what was then
Bute Co., in 1754. Later more lands were aquired for his
brother, Benjamin. In 1774, John Putman, of South Carolina,
signed a memorial for this very
same property.

!John Putman, was listed as being on the rolls of Captain Jodin
Harper, in the North Carolina Militia, in 1772. He would have
been Twenty-six years old at that time.

!Very shortly afterwards, John Putman, went to what is now
Union Co., South Carolina. He more than likely went with his
father, Thomas and Brother, Barnet. The Revolution came shortly
afterwards and John Putman, was made a Captain of his own
Company, in Colonel Thomas Brandon's Regiment.

!The fact that John Putman, was immediately made a Captain, and
put in charge of his own Company seems to tie in well with the
fact that he served some six year earlier in the North Carolina
troops. Barnet Putman's son, Daniel Putman, served in this
Regiment as well.

!John Putman's South Carolina Veterans file is # 6175.

!Barnet Putman, had received a land grant for 300 acres under
the name of Barnard Putman, 4 June 1773, in Berkeley Co., which
then encompassed the Ninety Six District. The land was near
Sedalia, in what is now Union Co.. In May of 1784, John Putman,
sold a 100 acre portion of this land, originally laid out to
Barnard Putman. It was sold to Joseph Hopkins. The sales
document, a form of lease and release, stated that John Putman,
had title to
the lands. Interestingly, the lease was attested to by Thomas
Brandon, who was later to be the commanding officer to both
Daniel Putman, and John Putman, during the Revolutionary War.

!The fact that John Putman, had claims to the title of Thomas'
land in North Carolina, leads me to believe that he was a son
of Thomas Putman. Of the original 310 acres, Thomas gave 7
acres to the church for a building, and 2 acres for a cemetery.
That left 300 acres, and it looks like he gave 100 acres to
each of his sons. Benjamin owned 100 acres and John seems to
have signed
for his 100 acres and for Barnet's 100 acres. The fact that he
was given part of Barnet Putman's land in Union Co., South
Carolina, seems to strengthen the whole family concept that I
believe to be the case.

!John Putman, received a South Carolina Land Grant in his own
name comprising some 383 acres in the Ninety Six District on 6
March, 1786, and two more grants in the Ninety Six District on
2 February, 1807.

!John Putman, married Sarah Howard, in Union Co., probably as
soon as he returned home from the fighting. She was the
daughter of Nehemiah Howard, of Union Co..

!1790 census: Union District, South Carolina.
Reverend John and Sarah.

!John was ordained and became the Pastor of Padgett's Creek
Baptist Church in Union Co., in 1794. He also founded the Brick
Meeting House, in Union Co., later called Putman's Church.

!1800 census: Union District, South Carolina.
The listing is 10101 42210. They have 2 sons and eight
daughters at home.

!1810 census: Union Co., South Carolina.
The listing is 00101 12402. They have one son and seven
daughters at home.
I do not know who the extra woman might be.

!1820 census: Union Co., South Carolina.
The listing is 000001 00411. They have five daughters still at
home.

!John Putman, died 1 December, 1820, in Union Co., South
Carolina. He is buried in Putman's Baptist Church Cemetery. His
tombstone reads: "died at 68 years." He died leaving his widow
and 12 children.

!John's estate was probated. The records may be found in Will
Book 2, Section B, page 62. The will was proved 13 December,
1820. The estate papers are in Box 11, package # 9, Union Co.,
South Carolina.

!ELIZABETH "PATSY" PUTMAN, born about 1755, married in
Granville Co., North Carolina, to Thomas Goss, in about 1776.
Thomas Goss, was born about 1753, the son of Thomas Goss
senior, and Frances "Fanny" Sherman, both born in the 1730's,
and married about 1750. Thomas Junior, was their eldest child.

!They remained in North Carolina, then went to South Carolina,
and were in the Pemdleton District, South Carolina, coming down
from the area of Wilkes Co. with others, including the Duff
family who later married other Putmans. They lived near the
Duffs.

!The 1800 census shows them with four sons and two daughters.
Thomas is shown as being over 45 and Patsy being under 45, so a
birth date of 1755/56, would be realistic for her.

!By 1810, they were living in Northwest Georgia, in first Hall
Co.,
then in Habersham Co.. Thomas Putman, son of Barnet Putman, had
by that time moved to Hall Co., Georgia. One of his children,
Wilson Putman, married Malissa Goss, there in Hall Co., Georgia
on 12 January, 1826.

!Patsy (Putman) Goss, died in Habersham Co., Georgia in the mid
1820's. Thomas Goss Junior, died in the mid 1830's, also in
Habersham Co., Georgia.

!The children of Thomas and Patsy, went mostly to Montgomery
Co., Arkansas, and then to Lawrence Co., Missouri, after the
Civil War.

!ZACHARIAH PUTMAN, was born in Gloucester Co., Virginia some
time in the 1690's and appears to be the oldest son of Thomas
Putnam (III).

!He was married, probably in Gloucester Co. or Essex Co.,
Virginia. I have no information at all on his marriage.

!Zachariah had at least three children: Zachariah II, Thomas,
and Mary. There may have been other children.

!On 15 July, 1717, a Zachariah Putman, of Kingston Parish,
purchased 140 acres of land in the ajoining St. Anne's Parish,
in what is now Essex Co., Virginia, from an Abraham Marchant,
also of Kingston Parish.

!Zachariah Putman died in Essex Co., Virginia, in late 1748.

!His will was dated 20 November, 1748 and was proven in January
of 1749. Zachariah had to have died in November or December of
1748, or early in January of 1749. He listed Mary Putman, a
daughter, as the only legatee.

!I feel that this Zachariah Putman, was the elder of two
Zachariah Putmans found in Virginia about the same time period.
I have noticed that it was the younger generations who moved
Westward. This Zachariah remained in Essex Co., on the coast,
and died there.

!There was a son, Zachariah Putman II, who moved with Thomas
Putman, who I feel was his brother, in the mid 1730's to
Culpeper Co., in the middle of Virginia. The Mary Putman, sole
legatee of elder Zachariah, must have been their sister, who
remained to care for their father after the death of her
mother.

!CAUTION: There is a certain amount of guesswork being used in
order to try and fit some facts into some sort of order.

!ZACHARIAH PUTMAN II, was born most likely in Essex Co.,
Virginia where his father died. He was probably born about 1715
to 1717. He married to a Margaret, whose maiden name is
unknown, probably in the late 1730's to 1740 tim period.

!He moved, along with his brother, Thomas, to middle Virginia
and settled in St. Mark's Parish, Culpeper Co., Virginia. He is
mentioned as being there a early as 1738. Therefore, he could
have been married before he left Essex Co. or shortly after he
arrived in Culpeper Co.. I do not know.

!The younger Zachariah Putman and Thomas Putman both appear in
St. Mark's Paris in Culpeper Co., Virginia at the same time.
Zachariah was discharged from paying the Parish levy in 1738
and Thomas paid a levy of 600 pounds of tobacco in 1739. It is
uncertain whether these two were brothers and were sons of
Zachariah I. It is my feeling that they were.

!Culpeper Co. was formed from Orange Co. in 1748. Prior to
then,
our lands were in Orange Co.. Orange Co. records turn up all
sorts of names that play important roles in the Putman family.
We find John BARNETT, who I feel was the father of the wife of
Thomas Putman of North Carolina. We also find John SKILTONE
(SKELTON) who was the father of William Skelton. William's
daughter, Prudence, married Daniel Putman in South Carolina. We
find John BOND whose family went with Thomas Putman's family to
South Carolina and lived next to them there. The same is true
of Richard HALCOM (HOLCOMBE) who was the father of John
Holcombe who also went to South Carolina. We find Ezekiah
ROADES (RHODES) who later married Elizabeth Putman in ajoining
Fauquier Co.. Members of the HEAD and BURTON families of South
Carolina were also there in the 1730's. The area just reeks of
Putman and Putman related history.

!Zachariah Putman received a land grant in 1750 for lands in
Goochland Co., Virginia. It does not appear that he ever moved
to that land as I can find no records there and when he died,
he left his will where he was living, in Culpeper Co.,
Virginia.

!The younger Zachariah Putman, the spelling now firmly Putman,
died in Culpeper Co., Virginia in 1753. In his will, Zachariah
listed his wife Margaret and his four sons; John, Daniel, James
and Henry. He also made minor bequests to Mary Putman and
Thomas Putman, and stipulated that all his children do for
themselves at age sixteen. This would indicate that these four
children were
all young or at least under the age of sixteen.

!Most wills that I have seen from this time period state that
the writer was old and weak. This will states that he was very
sick. It is my opinion that he was still a young man at the
time, still in his late thirties. The Mary and Thomas mentioned
in his will were, again in my opinion, probably his brother and
sister. The Mary being the same one mentioned in the will of
the elder Zachariah and the Thomas being the Thomas who went to
Culpeper with him.

!The children of Zacharia Putman II, were Henry, Daniel, James,
and John Putman There were probably some daughters, but no
record has been uncovered yet.

!Zachariah Putman II, remained in the state of Virginia his
entire life, but his four sons all migrated to KY and South
Carolina.
