About Jethro Putnam

Jethro Putnam 1703

CAPTAIN JETHRO PUTNAM, of Danvers, had preformed meritorious services in the Revolutionary army, and endured the hardships and losses incident to the war, and now turned his attention to the new west.  He owned a share in the Ohio Company, and came on with the first party of emigrants.  “Captain PUTNAM and Captain William GRAY furnished a pair of oxen and two horses for the use of the Company, for which service they were to be paid in lands, if agreeable to the Directors, or the teams to be appraised and purchased.”  When that party started, Captain PUTNAM had charge of the wagons and men.  He is mentioned as one of the grand jurors at the court held at Marietta, September, 8, 1788, after which we have been unable to trace him.
