Surnames: JOHNSTON, PUTNAM, PUTMAN, DOTEN, WHITE, MERRIAM
I'm researching the John E. PUTNAM family of Big Lake, MN. John E. and his wife Nancy Augusta MERRIAM were early pioneers in Big Lake. They ran an Inn in Big Lake for many years and John E. was the postmaster for many years as well. His son Elmer Eugene PUTNAM was also the postmaster in Big Lake. Elmer and his wife Viola PUTMAN's daughter Grace Merion married Wm. Henry JOHNSTON. They were my grandparents.

Elmer E. Putnam was married first to Julia Cordelia PUTMAN daughter of Peter and Patience Hannah PUTMAN from Silver Creek, MN. They had 4 children: Violet (wife of Jacob Doten); Gertrude (wife of Steven White); Earnest, and Julian (Jim). Elmer married second, Julia's sister Viola and had the following children: Pearl, Grace, Lester, Burt and Daisy PUTNAM.

I would like to hear from descendants of these families and I will share the information I have. Thanks.
