History of Putnam County
Published in 1886.
NO, the entire book has NOT been transcribed here. What follows is a list of the chapters within the book and under each chapter is a listing of the topics found within each chapter. I'm also including a list of those names for which biographical sketches were included in the book. If you are interested in seeing a specific biographical sketch, please e-mail me with the specific request and I'll try to transcribe it and upload it to these pages. Please keep in mind that with a family and full time job, my hours at transcribing genealogical texts are limited. So, keep your requests limited to one topic at a time. When your topic has been posted, I'll send you an e-mail with a copy to the Putnam County mailing list.
