John Putnam served in the militia and was selectman of Croydon, 1837, 1838, 1840, and 1854.  In 1840 was representative, and was also a member of the Constitutional Convention.  He was much respected and popular, and was generally known as "Uncle John."  He is especially mentioned in Wheeler's "History of Croydon."  He was strong both physically and mentally, and by industry became one of the more prosperous farmers in Croydon.  A descendant writes that "all of his children had a marked family likeness, the women tall, spare and dark, the men less tall and less dark, brown haired and gray eyed."  A Croydon gentleman states that "the Putnams of that place are generally above the average in size and strength and have dark hair and eyes.
The Croydon Putnams, except James W. were Democrats.
From a letter of a descendant of David Putnam, we learn that family tradition asserts he served in a company raised by Captain Whipple in Croydon to check Burgoyne's invasion, and was in active service at Stillwater and present at Burgoyne's surrender.  During the long winter evenings of that period the women plaited straw for sale and the men at home helped.  The farms were very rocky and required incessant toil."
