Descendants of Joseph Putnam and Elizabeth Hawthorne Porter 1. Joseph1 Putnam, born1 14 Sep 1669 in Salem Village (Danvers), Essex, MA; died 1724 or 1725 in Salem Village (Danvers), Essex, MA, son of Thomas Putnam and Mary Veren. He married on 21 Apr 1690 in Salem Village (Danvers), Essex, MA Elizabeth Hawthorne Porter, born 7 Oct 1673 in Salem Village (Danvers), Essex, MA; died 1746 in Salem Village (Danvers), Essex, MA, daughter of Israel Porter. Notes for Joseph Putnam It is said that Israel's father, Joseph Putnam, was such an outspoken critic of the witchcraft persecutions which shook Salem in the final years of the seventeenth century that he earned the lasting disapproval of both relatives and neighbors. As a precaution against the time when he might be accused of being a witch (or a warlock), they say Joseph Putnam kept his musket loaded and a fast horse saddled at all times, ready for possible flight.

Joseph Putnam will always be remembered for his opposition to Mr. Parris and the witchcraft trials. The position

which he took could only have been maintained by one who, like himself, was allied with the principal families of the county. He opposed from first to last the proceedings which disgraced Dauvers and his immediate relatives and friends. This was a source of peril to even him, however, and for six months, one of his fleetest horses was kept saddled, ready at a moment's notice, should an attempt be made to seize his person. This fact was well known and it was also known that he would resist every attempt of that nature, even though it cost the lives of those who came to take him. It is a significant fact that his children were baptized in Salem, this being a very public manner of showing his disapprobation of the course followed by Mr. Parris. Joseph Putnam should be honored far above all others of his generation; for he showed that not only did he have the courage common to all of the family, but was above the ignorant superstition of the time by which such men as Judge Samuel Sewall and Cotton Mather were overcome.

It is proper to state at this juncture, that the romantic tale of a sister of Joseph Putnam being accused of witchcraft at a

session of the Court to which she had been drawn by curiosity, and her flight and concealment in Middleton woods, is entirely without foundation. Mr. Tarbox in his History of Gen. Israel Putnam quotes from Mr. Rice, but however thrilling and interesting a story this account may be, it has absolutely no foundation.
