4) GENERAL NOTES (with source citations as indicated in brackets):
The data presented on the Putman family was obtained from Mark Putman, who publishes the Putman Family Bulletin. One of his publications, "Descendants of David Janse Putman, son of Johannes Pootman of Schenectady, New York," covers the present ancestral line, The John Putman sketch is on pages 57-59.
Sarah Martin was born on 7 March 1792 in Woodbridge, Middlesex County, New Jersey, the daughter and third child of Mulford and Betsey (Rolfe) Martin. I don't have a source for the birth date. She was age 58 in the 1851 Census of Upper Canada (so born in 1792 or 1793) and "in her 68th year" on her gravestone in December 1860 (so likely born in 1792 or 1793).
Sarah Martin married John Putman in about 1810, probably in Seneca County, New York, where the Peter Putman family had moved.
John and Sarah Putman moved to Steuben County, New York between 1810 and 1820. Their eight children were probably born in Wayne Town, Steuben County, New York between 1812 and 1834.
The John Putman family seems to have lived in the "Houck Neighborhood," a couple of miles northwest of the Village of Wayne, New York. The Town of Wayne was noted for its pine lumber, and large rafts of lumber were float from Mud Lake below the Village of Wayne, down Mud Creek to the Susquehanna that loggers built between 1810 and 1830 and floated down Mud Creek to the Susquehanna River, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.
About 1834, John Putman, with his brother Isaac Kinnan Putman, moved his family to Fredericksburg (later called Delhi), Norfolk County, Ontario, named after Frederick Sovereign, an early settler. John Putman may have followed the lumber trade from Steuben County, New York to Norfolk County, Ontario, since many of John's sons were lumber men. John Putman and Isaac Kinnan Putman pledged an oath of allegiance to Canada, recorded in Norfolk County in 1842.
The 1851 Census of Canada West provides this information about the Mulford M. Putman household residing in Middleton, Norfolk County, Ontario:
* Mulford M. Putman - an Inn Keeper, born in State New York, Religion is Baptist, Residence is Middleton, age 37, male

* John Putman - born in State Jersey, Religion is Baptist, Residence is Middleton, age 64, male

Sarah Putman died in Delhi, Norfolk County, Ontario 21 December 1860 in her 68th year. John Putman died in Delhi 10 May 1863 at the age of 78. Both were buried in the Middle Township Cemetery, but when the cemetery was sold in about 1970 to build a store, their gravestones were moved a short distance to the Delhi Cemetery. The inscription on the gravestone for Sarah and John "Putnam" in Delhi Cemetery says:
