Page 50

the name in Canajoharie, Mohawk Valley, at that time, as follows: James, who family consisted of four males over sixteen and seven females: John, three males over sixteen and four females: John, one male over sixteen, two under sixteen, and five females; Samuel, two males over sixteen, one under sixteen, and four females. In 1754 David Campbell, a native of Ireland and of Scotch Irish ancestry, "was in Schenectady; acquired great wealth as a merchant, a portion of which he left to a nephew, Dr. Campbell, of London, who resided in this country several years." David was judge of the court of common pleas for Albany County in 1771; married Engeltie, daughter of Arent Samuelse Bratt; had a son David, baptized November 15, 1768. There were others of the name, early settlers. Kennert, a Revolutionary soldier, was living in 1820, aged seventy-seven.

(I) Timothy Campbell, son of Ludwick Campbell, was a native of New York State, and a land owner in Luis County. Child: Daniel, mentioned below.

(II) Daniel, son of Timothy Campbell, was reared on his father's farm. After he became of age he learned the blacksmith's trade and followed it in connection with farming. When the Erie Canal was being built he secured contracts for stone work at the locks and other places where there was stone construction. Until 1867 he kept a store and hotel at Jacksonburg. In the latter year he removed to Lewis County, and later to Mohawk. After the death of his wife he returned to Lewis County, where he died at Lowville. He married Eliza, daughter of James Rankin. She died in 1867. He died in 1891. Children: 1. Julia. 2. James T., mentioned below. 3. Daniel. 4. Henry.

(III) James T., son of Daniel Campbell, was born January 30, 1840, in the town of Jacksonburg, Little Falls, Herkimer County, New York. He was educated at the Little Falls and Lowville academies. In early life he worked with his father in various enterprises and gained a general knowledge of contracting, which he has made his life work. In 1867 he located in Lowville. He was at that time a young man, but of such knowledge and experience that he at once began to secure important contracts. His first undertaking was the erection of the State Street Bridge across Mill Creek. This was satisfactorily completed and was the commencement of along and successful career as a contractor of building and railroad construction. He erected in Lowville, the engine house, the railroad house at the depot, the asylum building at the County Alms House, the Baptist Church on State Street, the Smiley Block, and many others. All his work was well done and gained for him a reputation as a man of integrity and ability. It was not as a contractor and builder, however, that he was principally engaged. His largest operations were in railroad construction, grading the road beds and erecting culverts and bridges. Of this last work he did a great deal, and at the time of his death had a large contract on hand, namely, the building of the Lowville and Beaver River Railroad. Though he started with a limited capital he soon secured such a good standing among men of means that money in plenty was easily obtained to finance his operations, and in time he acquired a good property. In politics he was a life-long Democrat, and in 1884 had the distinction of being elected supervisor of Lowville, being the only Democrat to hold that office for sixty years. He was also trustee of the town, and county superintendent of the poor. In 1891-95 he was superintendent of the Black River Canal, and was also intimately connected with Lowville Water Company and the Lewis County Agricultural Society. In church membership he was a Methodist, and faithful in all his church obligations. He was a member of the Free and Accepted Masons. He belonged to the Lowville Club. He married, September 9, 1868, Carrie E., daughter of Lewis and Elizabeth Ann (Putnam) Campbell, born February 27, 1850. Her family,

Page 51

He was called husbandman in 1614. He is supposed to have married Priscilla Deacon in 1611 or 1612. He was an early settler at Salem, Massachusetts, and according to family tradition came there in 1634; but the first record of him is March 21, 1640-41, when his wife was admitted to the church, and in the same year he received a grant of land. he was admitted to the church April 4, 1647. He was a farmer by occupation. His handwriting indicates a good education. He was well off, one of the wealthy men compared to his neighbors.

Page 53

1686. He married (first) October 17, 1643, at Lynn, Ann, daughter of Edward and Prudence (Stockton) Holyoke. Her father, was the great-grandfather of Edward Holyoke, president of Harvard College, 1737-69. The Holyoke family was one of the most prominent and aristocratic in the colony. Ann (Holyoke) Putnam died September, 1665. He married (second) at Salem, November 14, 1666, Mary Veren, widow of Nathaniel Veren, a rich merchant formerly of Salem. She died March 16 or 17, 1694-95. In 1684 Mrs. Putnam in the apportionment of seats in the meeting house at the village was seated in the first or principal pew reserved for women. Thomas Putnam was an inhabitant of Lynn in 1640; freeman in 1642; selectman in 1643. He was admitted to the Salem church April 13, 1643. In 1640 he received from the town a grant of fifty acres of upland and five acres of meadow. In 1645 he was appointed by the general court to end small causes, an office which was renewed in 1648. November 11, 1648, he was chosen as grand juryman in Salem, and December 1-, 1655, constable for the same time. He was also the first parish clerk in Salem village, and was prominent in the local military and ecclesiastical affairs. Besides the offices above mentioned he held the various position of "layer out the highways," "inspector of bridges," "to care for rates for the minister," etc. October 8, 1662, the general court confirmed his appointment as lieutenant in the troop of horse. When the general court permitted the inhabitants of Salem Farms to become a separate parish, October 8, 1672, Lieutenant Thomas Putnam was made chairman of the committee chosen to carry on the affairs of the new parish, and on November 25, 1680, he and Jonathan Wolcott were chosen deacons, the first mention of deacons in the village records. December 27, 1681, they were continued in office. In 1682 occurs the first list of taxpayers at the village, headed by Thomas Putnam. According to this list, he with his two brothers and their sons-in-law, were by far the wealthiest men in the village. Besides inheriting a double portion of his father's estate, he came by his second marriage into possession of considerable property in Jamaica and Barbadoes.

The homestead of Thomas Putnam, although somewhat enlarged, is still standing, and is now known as the "General Israel Putnam House." It is situated east of Hathorne's Hill in the northern part of Danvers, and was occupied by his widow in 1692. His son Joseph also lived here during his opposition to the witchcraft proceedings. There was also a town residence in Salem, situated on the north side of Essex Street, extending back to North River. He died in Salem Village, May 5, 1680. His will was dated July 8, 1680; in it he gave to his son Thomas the eastern half of his estate in Salem village; to son Joseph the western half; to son Edward another estate on the western side of St. Peter's Street. To each of the children he gave a large estate in Salem village and a valuable piece of meadow. Mr. Upham in his "Salem Witchcraft" thus sums up the character and position of Thomas Putnam: "Possessing a large property by inheritance, he was not quite so active in increasing it (as his brother) but enjoying the society and friendship of the leading men, lived a more retired life. At the same time he was always ready to serve the community when called for, as he often was, when occasion arose for the aid of his superior intelligence and personal influence." He wrote a very fine hand, and had evidently received a good education.

The will of his widow, Mary, was dated January 8, 1695-96, proved May 20, 1695. Children of first wife, all except Sarah recorded at Salem: 1. Ann, august 25, 1645. 2. Sarah, baptized July 25, 1648, at Salem. 3. Mary, October 17, 1649. 4. Thomas, march 12, 1652. 5. Edward, July 4, 1654, mentioned below. 6. Deliverance.

(XIX) Deacon Edward, son of Thomas Putnam, was born July 4, 1654, at Salem village, died there March 10, 1747. He was made freeman in 1690 and December 3, 1690, was chosen deacon of the First Church, in Danvers. His name stands second on the list and is followed by the names of thirteen of his descendants who have served in the same office. Like all of his family, he was a farmer, and in his will he styles himself "yeoman." He lived in what is now known as Middleton, but in the last years of his life occupied a house not far from the church at the village. During the witchcraft troubles, he was a member of the party which brought charges against so many people. His course in these proceedings shows, however, that he acted only as he believed was right and good for the community. His action was never bitter or vehement; he merely testified as to what he had seen and to what appeared to him to be probable. In those days when it was somewhat rare to find men outside the ministry who had any literary ability, Edward Putnam appears to have been an exception. He had a good education, and was evidently fond of books and of writing. He was the first historian and genealogist of his family, and his account of the family, written in 1733, is the basis upon which all future work of the same kind has been founded. He married, June 14, 1681, Mary Hale. His will was dated March 11, 1731, proved April 11, 1748. Children: 1. Edward, April 29, 1682. 2. Holyoke, September 28, 1683. 3. Elisha, November 3, 1685, mentioned below. 4. Joseph, November 1, 1687. 5. Mary, August 14, 1689. 6. Prudence, January 25, 1692. 7. Nehemiah, December 20, 1693. 8. Ezra, April 29, 1696. 9. Isaac, March 14, 1698. 10. Abigail, baptized May 26, 1700, at Salem village.

(XX) Deacon Elisha, son of Deacon Edward Putnam, was born November 3, 1685, in Salem village, died in Sutton, June 10, 1745. In 1723 he evidently lived in Topsfield, and is described as a "husbandman." In that same year, with others, he bought five hundred acres of land in the Nipmuck country, this being the northern half of the grant of the grant of one thousand acres to Colonel Elisha Huntington and Isaac Addington, in 1713. One week after the purchase, the land was mortgaged to Thomas Hutchins, of Boston, for six hundred pounds. He settled in Sutton, but at what date is unknown; possibly in 1725. In the year 1725 the name of Putnam first appears on the Sutton records, the particular mention being that of Elisha Putnam and his appointment as one of a committee to treat with the minister. From this time to his death Elisha Putnam was prominent in church and town affairs. He was representative to the general court, town clerk and treasurer, besides holding many minor offices. He was admitted to the church in 1730 and chosen deacon in 1731. He was a very useful citizen and much respected.
