The deceased was born in Red River County, July 2, 1846, and moved to Jack County with her parents in 1855. In 1860 she moved to Parker County.
In August 1861, she was married to W. N. Simpson, who soon died, and in 1865 she was married to I. C. Holley. To this union was born five sons and two daughters, all of whom survive their mother. Mr. Holley died in 1881.
She moved to Young County in 1875 where she lived until 1889 when she married Mr. John Putman and moved to Oklahoma. She was living with her son, Richard Holley, at the time of her death.
In addition to her children, she is survived by three brothers and many other relatives.
Mrs. Putman was a member of the Church of Christ. She was one of our good women who suffered from the hardships of the pioneer days. Coming to Jack County in 1855, she was there when there were very few white people and many Indians. In her girlhood days, she was familiar with the depredations of the marauding Indians.
Her friends in pioneer days will regret to learn of her death.
