#25 Isaac Puterbaugh. Paragraph on Puterbaugh Family:
"John Puterbaugh came from Pennsylvania to Vaughan Township in 1813. He purchased Lot 13, Concession 5 and received a Crown Deed which is still (1971) preserved by the family. John had a family of thirteen children. The property he purchased was farmed by his son Isaac, grandson Isaac, great-grandson Edgar and great-great grandson Person, who sold the farm in 1962. Percy''s daughters were the sixth generation of the family to live on the farm, which they owned for 149 years. In 1813 John built a log house, and soon after a log barn similiar to the Dalziel barn at Pioneer Vilage. Still in good condition, it was removed in 1963 and the timbers were used at the McMichael Conservation of Art Building at Kleinburg."

#47 This is a different way of sourcing I do: 14 Aug 2008
In searching for an obit for Bessie using Newspaperarchive.com I did not find the record of an obit. Nor did I find her in the county index. I did find her in the Social Security record showing she did die in Grand Traverse County, Michigan. Now I know what I have already done and what options it leaves me to research for her death record.
