Due to the Courthouse fire in 1899, many of Putnam County's marriage records were lost.

This abstract is an attempt to reconstruct the lost marriages from a variety of other sources.

This transcription contains obituary notices from The Cookeville Press and the Putnam County Herald.

There are hundreds of obituaries from these papers.

This section contains abstracts from the early Putnam County deed books.

Fortunately, most of Putnam County's deed books survived the 1899 fire.
