Re: William Lee Putman 1863-1930 CO-UT
Here's more detailed information (much of it matches what you have)
William Lee Putman born on 14 Jul 1863 in Yellow Creek, Linn COunty, Missouri and died on 14 MAr 1930 in Helper, Carbon County, Utah
Alice E. Waterhouse married William Lee Putman on Nov. 5, 1883.Eight months later she married Samuel L. Bigelow on Jul. 28, 1884 (reference: Page 18, Marriages of Arapahoe County, Colorado, 1859-1901 ... U.S./Can 978.882, V2M in the Salt Lake LDS Genealogical Library).This record of a second marriage has been verified by a cousin's son living in Denver so this casts some doubt of the prior belief that Annie was the mother of William and Teller (but it could be).To date I have no official document listing a mother for these two boys.It also supports the belief by one of William's granddaughters that William was married on four different occasions.
There were two known Putman families living in the Denver area at this time; William parents and his.This leads to a strong possibility though not confirmed that the next four children were born to William and an unknown wife.
Arthur Putman born about 1885 and died 6 Jan 1890 (Source is Denver cemetery card - no parents listed)
Joseph Putman born about Aug 1886 and died 20 Jan 20(Source is Denver cemetery card - no parents listed, 2nd source headstone record of Jos-- Putman in the SLC Genealogy library)
William Jonathan Putman born 28 April 1888 (Denver) died on 2 Jul 1944 in Oregon.Willaim married a lady named Daisy Yandell on 13 jan 1910 and as far as we know they were childless.
Teller William Putman born about 1893 died in Aug 1900 (Source is Denver cemetery card
This narrows the time frame for William tpo move to Utah and meet Annie Rebecca Gange to somewhere between 1893-1894
Henry Lee Putman (my grandfather) was the oldest son of William and Annie; he was born on May 10, 1895 (where the Ogden, UT Courthouse now stands - erected in 1900).He died on 6 Jan 1980.
Frank Putman - according to my grandfathers handwritten notes was born and died in Dragerton, Utah in 1897.On Memorial day a few years back I made a day-long journey to the current town of East Carbon/Sunnyside to look for a record of Frank.To my dissapointment there was no facility related to the cemetery open and the city hall was also closed. - - Do you have a source for Frank's birth being in Ogden?
Albert Ellis Putman Clements was born on 15 Apr 1898 in Colorado Springs and died on 10 Nov 1981 in Little Rock, Ark
Clarence Edwin Putman Clements was born on 9 Jan 1900 in Colorado Springs.. I did not notice until now that I did not record a death in my computer file.
William Wilford Putman born 19 Jul 1902 in SLC, UT and died 7 May 1960 in San Diego, CA
George Arthur Putman Bentley was born on 8 may 1904 in SLC, UT and died on 20 May 1935
Annie died as a result of complications of childbirth and this is when the William put her boys in an orphanage.When William marrried Lulu (Lula) Mary Shaw only Henry and William Wilford had not been "adopted" so to speak.Willaim married Lulu on 24 may 1905.Lulu was born on 1 Feb 1887 in Gravity, Iowa and died in Salt Lake City on ? (Opps another record not entered into my computer)
Lulu and Annie are both burried in the Salt lake City cemetery.The cemetery records also show Annie's mother and grandfather in the cemetery.There is a headstome for her father thre also but the cemetery records do not have him listed.
Josie Florence Putman was named after William Lee Putman's favorite sister.She was born on 7 Mar 1906 in SLC, UT and died on 1 May 1906.She was buried in teh Mt. Olivet cemetery in SLC, UT but many years later an entery was made tht the bosy was moved.I believe the note is in error because she was not moved to be near her mother in the SLC cemetery of her father in the Price cemetery.I believe that her body and wood casket had decomposed by the time an adjoing grave was dug.
Baby Putman was born and died on 17 mar 1907 and is buried in the Ogden cemetery - source Ogden cemetery records.
Juanita Virgil Putman was born on 28 Oct 1908 in Ogden, she died on 24, Jul 1952 in Kaysville, UT
Rollo Lincoln Putman was born on 5 May 1910 in SLC, UT and died on 28 Jan 1966 in Monterey, CA.
Sterling Jonathan Putman was born on 12 Jan 1915 in SLC, UT and died on 11 May 1994 in Citrus Heights, CA
and finally Elenor Mary Putman was born on 8 Nov 1916 in SLC, UT and died on 14 Dec. 1996 in Seattle, WA
In my original note I made a comment that I wondered if my Grandfather had mistaken living in Colorado Springs as Pueblo.I should ave trusted my grandfather's memory for in anotehr note he listed the schools that he could remeber attending and a Pueblo school was on the list.
