Ann Putnam Jr.

Ann Putnam Jr. was the eldest child of Thomas and Ann Putnam. She was born in 1680. Ann was intelligent, well educated, and had a quick wit. At the time of the outbreak of witchcraft accusations, Ann was 12 years old. She was a close friend of several of the other afflicted girls. Mercy Lewis, 17, was a servant in the Putnam house, and Mary Walcott, 17, who was also afflicted, was perhaps Ann's best friend. Ann, Mary, and Mercy were among the first villagers outside of the Parris household to be afflicted.

Ann and six other young girls had listened as Tituba, Parris's Indian servant woman, told tales of voodoo and other supernatural events in her native Barbados. The girls also engaged in fortune telling--concerning, for example, matters such as what trade their sweethearts might have. During one fortune telling episode, Ann reported seeing a specter in the likeness of a coffin. After this incident, Ann, Betty Parris, and Abigail Williams (the niece and home resident of Parris) began to display strange symptoms. They complained of pain, would speak in gibberish, became contorted into strange positions, and would crawl under chairs and tables.

After Betty Parris was sent away, Ann and Abigail became the most active--as well as the youngest--of the accusers. Ann claimed to have been afflicted by sixty-two people. She testified against several in court and offered many affidavits. Her father, Thomas Putnam, was the chief filer of complaints in the village, and maintained complete control over the actions of the two afflicted girls living in his house. Most of the afflicted and the accusers were in some way related to the Putnam family. Ann Putnam Sr., Ann's mother, would also become afflicted at times, and was in court almost as much as her daughter and servant. The mother and daughter Ann were a particularly formidable pair of actors. People from miles around trooped into the courtroom to watch their performances.

In 1706, Ann offered a public apology for her participation in the witch trials at Salem. She stood in church while her apology was read:

I desire to be humbled before God for that sad and humbling providence that befell my father's family in the year about ninety-two; that I, then being in my childhood, should, by such a providence of God, be made an instrument for the accusing of several persons of a grievous crime, whereby their lives were taken away from them, whom, now I have just grounds and good reason to believe they were innocent persons; and that it was a great delusion of Satan that deceived me in that sad time, whereby I justly fear I have been instrumental, with others, though ignorantly and unwittingly, to bring upon myself and this land the guilt of innocent blood; though, what was said or done by me against any person, I can truly and uprightly say, before God and man, I did it not out of any anger, malice, or ill will to any person, for I had no such thing against one of them; but what I did was ignorantly, being deluded by Satan.

Ann was the only one of the afflicted girls to make such an apology. There is some speculation that Ann was as much a victim as those she accused. She may have been manipulated by her parents and elders to achieve their ends.

In 1699, both of Ann's parents died within two weeks of each other. Ann, 19, was left to raise her nine orphaned brothers and sisters, ranging in age from 7 months to 18 years. Ann never married. She devoted her life to raising her siblings. She died in 1716 at the age of 37.
University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law.1 Ann Carr Putnam was also known as Ann (Anna) Putnam.2 She was born on 18 October 1679 at Salem Village (after 1757 Danvers), Essex County, Massachusetts.1 She was a witness 'March 12, 1691/1692 visits Martha Corey with Ezekiel Cheever after being at Thomas Putnam's house. They tell her about fits Ann is having and talk to her about being a witch. Martha smiled when Ann said she was blinded and didn't know what she wore. They felt the smile was evil and conniving on behalf of Martha.' http://etext.virginia.edu/salem/witchcraft/NurseDoc/NurPutn.html Rebecca Nurse Collection: Edward Putnam Vs.

     Seth Putnam was born in May 1695 at Salem Village (after 1757 Danvers), Essex County, Massachusetts; now Danvers.2 He married Ruth Whipple at Essex County, Massachusetts, on 16 September 1718.1,3 Seth Putnam died on 30 November 1775 at Charlestown, Sullivan County, New Hampshire, at age 80; Seth Putnam was one of the earliest of the Danvers Putnams to go forth into the wilderness and make a home for himself and family. In 1719, Mar 21, he bought of Samuel Walker, for 200 pounds, a house lot and sixty acres of land in Billerica. His farm began at Shawshin bridge and was bounded by the river on the west. Here he lived until about 1750 when he removed to Number Four, now Charlestown, NH. This frontier post had been fearfully exposed to Indian attacks, and but three of the original grantees had settled there. IN 1746, Number Four had been abandoned by the inhabitants who took up their abode for the most part in Groton, Lunenburg, and Leominster, MA. In 1747, the place was again garrisoned and on 21 Jun 1751, a company of settlers was organized with Phineas Stevens as captain. On the rolls of this company are found the names of two sons of Seth, viz, Ebenezer and Thomas. The father was at Charlestown, but not on the company rolls. Ebenezer Putnam also served under New Hampshire in 1755. In 1755 upon a petition of the inhabitants of Charlestown, fourteen in number, among whom were Seth and Ebenezer Putnam, Massachusetts again garrisoned the town. There had been ten Indian attacks between 1753-1755, and New Hampshire had failed to afford the town any protection.
On the 18 Feb 1754, a committee which had been appointed by New Hampshire to examined into the claims of persons to land at Charlestown, reported forty-three claims besides the heirs of Obadiah Sartwell. Among the forty-three were Mr.Seth Putnam, Ebenezer Putnam, and ThomasPutnam, to each of whom was set apart 1/43 of the whole.
After the close of hostilities, Charlestown was no longer a frontier town and by 1760 a tide of emigration set in which soon filled the country with desirable settlers and gave the inhabitants of Old Number Four, among them the Putnam family, the opportunity they long wished for, to cultivate their farms and establish a flourishing town.
Seth Putnam helped form the first church at Charlestown and was one of the first ten members. He seems to have been highly respected by his neighbors. On 14 Aug 1753, the first town meeting at Charlestown was held and Seth Putnam was chosen tything man.
On his tombstone is the following inscription: 'The memory of the just is blest.' on his wife's 'Sweet soul we leave thee to thy rest till we shall meet thee above with Christ.1,2'
