journeymen together in the same shop, and bought
the business of J. H. Gray & Co., manufacturers of
milled machine screws, at 50 Union street. The firm
name was McCloud & Crane. They moved later -to
57 Union street. The manufacture of machine
screws and nuts was the exclusive business of this
linn, and a large business was built up through the
enterprise and industry of the two original part-
ners. The firm became a corporation in 1892, under

esty and hard work accumulated a fair share of this
world's goods ; he was honored and respected ; a
great reader and well informed on every question
of his day.

PUTNAM FAMILY. John Putnam, the immi-
grant ancestor of the late Samuel Putnam, of Leo-



minster, Massachusetts, came from Ashton Ab-
botts, county Buckinghamshire, England. He was
born 1580 and died at Salem Village, now Danvers,
December 30, 1662, aged eighty years. The earliest
record of him in America is in 1640 when he had a
grant of land at Salem. He was admitted to the
church April 4, 1647, and a freeman the same year.
He was a prosperous farmer and was apparently
well educated, judging from his writing. He deeded
land to his son John, March 31, 1653, and later to
son Nathaniel. (See sketch of Putnams of Worces-
ter and Sutton).

He married Priscilla Gould. Their children were:
Elizabeth, baptized at Ashton Abbotts, England, De-
cember 20, 1O12; Thomas, baptized March 7, 1614,
ancestor of the Sutton Putnams; John, baptized
July 24, 1617; Nathaniel, baptized October 11, 1619,
of whom later; Sarah, baptized March 7, 1622-3;
Phebe, baptized July 28, 1624; John, baptized May
27, 1627, died April 7, 1710.

(II) Nathaniel Putnam, son of John Putnam
(1), was born in Ashton Abbotts, Buckinghamshire,
England, in 1619, and baptized October 11, that
year. He died at Salem, July 23, 1700. He was a
prosperous farmer, settled in what is now Danvers,
.Massachusetts. He married Elizabeth Hutchinson,
daughter of Richard and Alice (Bosworth) Hutch-
inson. She was born in Arnold, England, August
20, 1629, and baptized there August 30; died at
Danvers June 24, 1688. Both were admitted to the
church at Salem in 1648. Their children, born at
Salem Village, were : Samuel, February 18, 1652 ;
Nathaniel, April 24, 1O55 ; John, March 26, 1657 ;
Joseph, October 29, 1059; Elizabeth, August 11,
1662, married Sergeant George Flint; Benjamin,
of whom later; Mary, September 15, 1668, married
John Tufts.

John, Benjamin and Mary alone survived their
youth. Part of the original homestead of Nathaniel
Putnam at Danvers is still known as the Judge Put-
nam place. Nathaniel was constable in 1656 and
deputy to the general court in 1690-91. He was
prominent in the church and town, serving for some
years as selectman. He had great business ability
and activity and was a man of unusual powers of
mind, "of great energy and skill in the manage-
ment of affairs and of singular sagacity, acumen and
quickness of perception. He left a large estate."
He was involved in a lawsuit over the ownership
of the Bishop farm, so-called, and his side of the
controversy was successful in 1683. During the
trouble over the pastorate of Rev. Mr. Bayley he
was an opponent, but when Mr. Bayley was dis-
missed he was one of those who contributed land
May 6, 1680, to make a farm for him. He had the
rank of lieutenant. He was one of the four mes-
sengers to Rev. Samuel Parris to obtain his reply
to their call. As the head of the large and influential
Putnam family he was known for years as "Land-
lord" Putnam. He was a leader in the witchcraft
delusion which had its centre in Salem and Salem
Village where he lived. Upham says of him : "En-
tire confidence was felt by all in his judgment and
deservedly. But he was a strong religionist, a life
long member of the church and extremely strenuous
and zealous in his ecclesiastical relations. He was
getting to be an old man (at the time of the De-
lusion) and Mr. Parris had wholly succeeded in ob-
taining for the time possession of his feelings,
sympathies' and zeal in the management of the church
and secured his full co-operation in the witchcraft
prosecutions. He had been led by Parris to take
the very front of the proceedings. But even Na-
thaniel Putnam could not stand by in silence and
see Rebecca Nurse sacrificed."
