  • These photos have been passed down to me and most have no identifying information on them. Based on our research, my wife and I have thus made educated guesses about the photos of those who we think are Putmans.

    Sarah Putman Corley ca. 1872
    Sarah Jane was the oldest of James Pervine's daughters. She married James Hudson Corley in 1872 so we assume this photo to be taken after then.

    Josie Putman DeHart ca. 1879
    The photo from which we scanned this says it dates from 1879. It is the only photo I have of my great grandmother.

    Mary Jane Putman ca. 1882
    We think this is Josie's youngest sister and her husband, George Allman. They were married in 1882 so this probably dates from the mid 1880s.

    DeHart Family ca 1890
    My great grandfather, William H. DeHart, his second wife, Alma, and his sons by Josie, Lewis (my grandfather) and Leslie. Photo dates from the early to mid 1890s since William and Alma married in 1890 and she died in 1900.

    Robert L. DeHart ca 1920
    My father was born in 1918 so this photo was taken in the early 1920s.

    Five Putmans ca. 1930
    We think this is a photo of Josie's siblings as adults: John K.; Sarah Jane; Elvira Sophronia; Mary Jane; and William J. If correct, the photo dates from prior to June, 1930 when Mary Jane died.
