I am not a Putney descendant, but in researching the Chinn family I found that Betty Ellison Withers of Virginia married Stephen Putney from Massachusetts. Stephen was a shoe merchant in Richmond, VA, and his home is now part of the Virginia Commonweath University campus.
In the 1880 census for Richmond, I found the following and wonder if someone could straighten out the lineage here.
Putney, Stephen, head, 30 MA MA MA
Putney, Bettie E., wife, 22 VA VA VA
Putney, Langhorne, son, 21 VA MA VA
Putney, Julia, daughter, 19 VA MA VA
Putney, Annie, daughter, 17 VA MA VA
Putney, Lizzie, daughter, 15 VA MA VA
Putney, Eva, daughter, 11 VA MA VA
Is Stephen's age listed wrong? Are these his children or siblings? Bettie's age is correct, so she can't be their mother.
