Thanks so much for taking the time to put all this information into your reply.
I was working on it late into the night, and kind of came up with the same theory about
George being the son of Isaac Austin and Salome Bennett, prior to his divorce of his wife
What threw me into confusion was reading George's obituary of 1950 in the Putnam
Courier (as he was going by George Bennett, not Austin), where it said he was the son of
David and Salome Austin Bennett.
My records indicated that a Salome Bennett married Isaac Austin after his divorce. That
Salome Bennett was the daughter of David and Amanda Tompkins Bennett.
I could not find a Salome Austin anywhere other then in later census's that had her
married to Isaac Austin.
After I posted this message I went back and kind of figured it out, from the birth dates
of Geroge, from I had in my database and the census records. Also reread the obituary and
noticed that I overlooked a reference to those surviving him were a half-brother, David
Then it all fell into place. Again I thank you for your time, if there is anything I can
do for you. I see you have extensive knowledge of the Putnam families.
