RE: Uzziel Franklin Putnam I am sorry, I find a John Putnam, age 24, living with a Polly Putnam, age 52 in the 1850 census. I also find an Ira J. Putnam, age 23, in the 1850 census living in a different household. I am going to need a little more proof of this. Thank you.

RE: Platz I'm actually not related, but I was sent a ton of great photos. Platz was the surname of someone married into a branch of my family. Someone in that line sent me photos and this Platz group was among them. Just thought if you were related that I would let you know. Hopefully, I'll get some uploaded to Find A Grave. Getting them on Family Search first. Thanks for the offer, but not needed.
