Leslie Hiram Putnam (1881 - abt. 1977) Need burial info

+3 votes

Leslie Hiram Putnam was born August 19, 1881 in Manchester New Hampshire to Lewis Hiram Putnam (1858 - 1921) and Vina Eldora (Mclaughlin) Putnam (1864 - 1931). Married Mary F. (George) Putnam (1887 - abt. 1956) November 5, 1907 in  Goffstown New Hampshire. He died April 15, 1977 in Worcester Massachusetts. We need help with his exact place of burial as his F.A.G. Memorial has no gravestone and those contributors who have looked there can’t find his stone. He is possibly not buried there or the stone difficult to find. Any help in adding sources and updating profile would be appreciated.

 Thank you wikitree family

Two schools of thought. As an observer with no research done on this case, I see a tombstone for a child, Mary George, who died in 1956 at the age of 6 m. (months). Observe the type of image chosen for the stone. The second thought is that if this is his wife, could there be a larger stone with the married name, and several graves share it? Another explanation could be that I have seen maiden names used on stones of married women, but usually they would say "Wife of _______ __________.

Nothing like a good mystery!
Good point! A mystery indeed
You are correct the Find A grave was not her stone. It appears she did pass between 1930-1940 as Leslie her husband is living with his sister in law and his two children. Still looking for her burial and gravestone however we can rule out that the 1956 stone was her.  Research cont....
