This web site is dedicated to

  • General Rufus Putnam, Revolutionary War veteran, surveyor, founder of Marietta, Ohio, our ancestor, and
  • Florence B. Taylor, my grandmother, and
  • Margery Estelle Young, my mother



    Here you will find...

  • "The Memoirs of Rufus Putnam," his life story, compiled by Mary Cone, 1886.
  • Putnam descendants - our family, and
  • Photos of Campus Martius Museum, in Marietta, Ohio

  • Wagons Away! a social studies primer on the early 1790's settlement of the Western Reserve (Ohio). This wonderful, easy-to-read story is told through the experience of the real Benjamin Stone who - in 1791 - was age 9 and, with his family, made the rugged trip from Rutland, Massachusetts, to the Ohio Territory. Benjamin's family found Marietta and Belpre, Ohio freshly constructed, there on the banks of the Ohio River.

    Florence and sister, Mary, Burlingame
