He was not only influ ential in town and parish affairs but was known throughout the colony as a dashing cavalry officer. Col. Timothy Pick ering was accustomed to mention among the recollections of his boyhood that "David Putnam rode the best horse in the Province." For many years the inhabitantsof Salem Village had been petitioning the General Court to set them off as a separate town and in these attempts David Putnam sided with the pop ular party. In 1752, they partially gained their point and David and James Putnam are among the subscribers to a pe tition to Daniel Eppes, Esq. , for calling the first town meet ing in the District of Danvers, 18 Feb., 1752. This meeting was held on the 4th of March, and Lt. David was chosen one of the highway surveyors, an important office in a new town. Previous to the separation he had held various offices in the old town. "Mehitabel, in History of Sanbomton, N. H., is said to have m. Laban Harrlnmn, a Quaker and to have had a child, Mehitabe), b. 20 Sept. , 1781 ; m., 1789, John a brums of Sanbornton. He was b. in Araesbury, 3 March, 1766. This must refer to some other MehMable, though whom, I know not. (See No. 2880In 1751, he was selectman of Salem from the Village and doubtless did much to influence the town to consent to the separation. In 1753, he was chosen selectman of Danvers and in 1757 was one of a committee of five to regulate the grammar school. Hardly a year passed but that he held some one or another town office, being at various times selectman, surveyor of highways, tythingman, overseer of the poor, warden, and on special committees. He was last taxed in 1767, his estate was taxed in 1768, and his will proved in 1769. This will is an interesting document; by it he provided for his son William, his daughters Lucy, Mehetable Sparhawk, and Eunice, then gives the remainder to his sons, Joseph and Israel leaving it to them to divide, they to furnish their youngest brother, Jesse, with the means to carry him through college. The terms of the will were fulfilled in every particular and tradition states that when Joseph and Israel came to divide the property each had chosen that which the other did not want. This property comprised the estate now known as the Gen. Israel Putnam place, the Col. Jesse place v about fifty acres, now owned by the state, included in the Insane Hospital grounds, and the houses of Eben S. Flint, Eben Jackson,Mrs. Damel Verry, Mrs. Julia A. Philbrick, and the school- house grounds. The section known as the Col. Jesse estate fell to Joseph and the part known as the Gen. Israel place fell to Israel. The sword carried by Col. David long remained in the hands of his descendants and never left the homestead until presented on the 19 May, 1890, by Granville B. Putnam, Esq., to the Danvers Historical Society.

nine children. She was born 28 Oct 1710. Her parents were Thomas Perley and Sarah Osgood.

Jesse Putnam, born 1754, married Elizabeth Meriam. We tried unsuccessfully to find whether Danvers may have been a later name for Salem Village, but they are a little too far apart on our maps. Now we think it may be that Danvers became the mailing addressfor Salem Village. Perhaps a future researcher could clarify this. i) Israel7
