JOHN L. PUTMAN
In the spring of 1779, John enlisted while living
at Broadalbin (then called Fonda's Bush) as a sergeant in Captain John Littel's
Company in Colonel Frederick Visscher's Regiment of Tryon County Militia
On June 2nd, Lieutenant John Ross with about 300 Indians and Loyalists raided Mayfield, Fish House, Philadelphia Bush and Broadalbin. On raiding Broadalbin, Joseph Scott, John Reece, Herman Salisbury, Andrew Bowman and John were taken prisoners at their homes. These prisoners with the other prisoners that were taken at the other settlements were taken to Canada.
It is not know what happened to John but it is assumed that he died in a prison in Canada.
