Charles Elwyn Putnam, age 68, son of the late Squire William and Elizabeth Putnam, pioneer settlers near Conneaut Lake Park, Crawford county, Pa., died Tuesday, Feb. 9, in his home at Linesville, Pa.
He was born in Crawford county on April 23, 1857, and after attending and graduating from school at Harmonsburg, studied law, although he never practiced. After leaving law school he was engaged in the insurance business for many years. He was justice of the peace in Linesville for 30 years.
About 40 years ago Putnam became identified with the excursion business of the Bessemer & Lake Erie railroad, then known as the Pittsburgh, Shenango & Lake Erie railroad.
When the Conneaut Lake Park Co. was organized in 1890 he became its publicity manager and held the position until his death. For the last 20 years he was correspondent for the "Press" in the Conneaut Lake region.
Putnam was a staunch Democrat and was selected by President Wilson as postmaster at Linesville, serving in this capacity for nine years.
He was married to Miss Katherine Glenn, daughter of one of the oldest families of Crawford County.
