Archive:Putney, Vermont, Vital Records
Compiled and edited by Ken Stevens, published by the Genealogical Society of Vermont, 1992.
"Approximately one-half of our listings of births, intentions of marriage, marriages and deaths come from the entries of the town clerks in these beautifully preserved town record books, from the earliest available, through the year 1899. This material has been augmented by the records of baptisms, marriages and deaths found in the diaries of Rev. Elisha D. Andrews, the third pastor of Putney, coverning the years 1807 - 1829; and of his successor, the Rev. Amos Foster, covering the years 1833 - 1870. There are also a few entries from the fragmentary records of the Rev. Josiah Goodhue, first pastor of Putney, who served from 1776 to 1797. Baptisms shown herein as "baptized, no date," are from the undated list of Rev. Goodhue.
Thirdly, we have included dates of births and deaths copied from gravestones in all fifteen cemeteries in Putney, a source which accounts for approximately one-third of the total. In evaluating material from this source one should realize that some of these deaths and many of the births did not occur in Putney, also that we have ignored relationships suggested by the proximity of names, and have listed only those which are spelled out on the stones."
