Taken From The Pierce-Putnam Scrapbooks
Jefferson County, N. Y.

The following obits/abstracts* came from two large obit books prepared by Judy Pierce, of Redwood, Jefferson County, N. Y. Judy assembled these obit books, and another of marriages*, anniversaries, etc., from the clipping collection of her good friend, Rena Putnam, of the Redwood-Plessis area. Rena passed away earlier this year (2001), and Judy, at times, updates the collection where Plessis-Redwood families are concerned. Judy loaned me the books so that I could get the information out to others for use in their genealogy pursuits. A thank you to Suzi Howard who typed a great many of these items from the scrapbook pages.

The scrapbook containing marriages, anniversaries, birthdays, and other articles will appear on this website under "Another Pierce-Putnam Scrapbook."

A problem at Rootsweb some time after this project's completion caused the disappearance of most of the A thru G's. Now, in 2004, I have attempted a reconstruction of these missing portions. Since I no longer have the scrapbook, this phase of the project hasn't been easy. The material contained in this section is no longer in the sequence seen in the scrapbook. Therefore, I present below an alphabetized list of the obits and abstracts of obits. At the top of this page you will find my Free Find Robot for your use in locating the obit (see next paragraph).

Because the file became very large, I have presented the obits, etc. in 43 sections. Those sections may be accessed from the clickable list BELOW the alphabetized list of names. Again, the easiest method by which to locate an obit is to use the Free Find feature at the top left of this page. Experimenting is the best way to understand what I've tried to say here.

*For the most part this portion of the project involves obituaries; however, there are some instances when an article is included which was written about someone's birthday.
