Obituary, 14 May, 1920, "Ohio City Progress:"

"Mrs. Isaac Putman died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. W.M. Harp, three miles east of Ohio City, on Monday, May 3, at two p.m. After several weeks of suffering, death came as a message to release her spirit from this earthly home. She was hugely respected by all who knew her in the community where she lived. She was converted and baptised when young under the pastorship of Tobias Koogle. Her life has been an example of faithful, loving and devoted service; she has lived a long and useful life, now her work is done and she has gone to her reward. Mrs. Putman, whose maiden name was Sophia Mihm, was born in Seneca County, New York State, January 6, 1832, aged 88 years, 3 months and 26 days. On August 15, 1850, she was united in marriage to Isaac Putman, who preceeded her to the great beyond. To this union was born nine children, Fidelia King, deceased; Hugh Putman, Ohio City; Solomon Putman, of Van Wert; Elic [Alec] Putman, Van Wert; Mary Krick of Celina; Rosa Agler and Margaret Harp, of Van Wert County; Lora and Frankie who died in infancy; forty-three grand-children, sixty-nine great grand children. Besides these she leaves one sister, Lovina King, and a host of friends and relatives to mourn her departure.

"Farewell Mother thou has left us, and we now must say farewell:
How we loved our darling mother, earthly tongues can never tell.
Farewell mother, but not forever, soon we will meet on that bright shore.
Won't that be a happy meeting when we meet to part no more?

"She was one of the pioneers, moving from Seneca County New York, to the county line, driving through in a big wagon by the way of Buffalo some 75 or 80 years ago. Her funeral was conducted by Rev. C.T. Betts, interment in the Ridge Cemetery beside her husband who preceeded her to the spirit world some 25 years ago. 'Good Bye Mother,' but we hope to meet you in that morning."
