Re: Rollo L Putman info Elizabeth Coulson
The earlier note made a reference to Elizabeth J. Coulson
I have only found the middle initial "J" in one source and that source was in error!You will find this reference in the book titled "The Marriage Records of Linn County, Vol 1" #977.824 V25E in the LDS Geneology Library. (NOTE: Linn County, Missouri is next to Putnam County, Missouri).This book shows "Jonathan J. Putnam to Elizabeth J. Coulson 11 Aug. 1859" in Yellow Creek, Linn County, Missouri. I tracked down a microfilm of the original source referenced by the book and that source which was a hand-written journal of marriages. As typical with the family name, Jonathan's last name is misspelled, he is listed as Jonathan J. Putnam. The actual handwritten record shows that Jonathan J. Putnam married Elizabeth Coulson; note that there is no "J" listed for Elizabeth's middle initial.
