Welcome to
Putnam County, Indiana

THANKS SO VERY MUCH to Vern Paul -- I received this quite awhile ago but couldn't figure out how to display it so here are two ways (as well as some health issues) -- this listing and his original chart which is easier to read but wasn't sure how it would open :) THANKS VERN - this is greatly appreciated and if you ever find more, that'd be AWESOME -- Note: Some of these may be from Greencastles in other states - example -- John Wilson Osborne is from Greencastle Pennsylvania. Note 2 - As Vern said, some of them have no names so be prepared for some frustration (I really want to know who at age 70 would bother killing his wife ?? and then the one who froze to death, how sad) -- do think most of these are from other states but a few may be from here. Here, there or yonder, they are ALL interesting !! kbz
