I have Robert W. Putney marrying Martha Wooten Fulkerson on February 8th, 1866 in Mason County West Virginia. Isaac and Nancy Putney have a daughter named Virginia born August 1st 1861 in Mason County Virginia.You may want to do your internet searches using West Virginia instead of Virginia.
Do you have any idea what happened to Sarah C. Putney Jeffers?? She is an older sister of your Robert W. Putney. I have looked at the 1870 Missouri Census for Lafayette County, and I see there is a Maria Jeffers (granddau)aged 7 years living in the household of Isaac & Nancy Putney. So far, I haven't found a birth record for Maria in VA/WV.
