    son of Isaac Putnam and Anna Fuller

    Possessed of an adventurous spirit, he, for a time, left his family and came to Cornish and spent the winter of 1764-65 in "Mast Camp" with a Mr. Dyke, and perhaps others who were engaged in cutting timber for the King's navy. During the following summer he was joined by his family and others from Sutton, when the settlement of the town began. He was a soldier of the Revolution and participated in several of its important events. Served under Col Jonathan Chase in 1777 for 3 years; in 1781 member of Capt Moody Dustin's Co., 1st NH Continental. A part of the time he served as blacksmith in the army of Gen. Washington. It is said that he had the distinguished honor of cutting the handcuffs from the wrists of Maj. Andre as he was about to be executed. After the war was over he returned to Cornish and became one of the leading men in the affairs of the town.
