Feedback: It is Putman, not Putnam County
Tennesseans have it all wrong! Resident corrects a matter of great import to the Putman County community of Adair County, KY
I really enjoy reading Jason Harmon's stories about the history of Adair County, particularly Burton Ridge. But one thing I just had to comment on was his spelling and perhaps pronunciation of the community in which I live.
You see it may be "Putnam" in Tennesssee, but here in Kentucky, it's "Putman." Ask anyone who lives here also known as Allen Schoolhouse RD and they will tell you the same.
Those people in Tennessean had it wrong. lol.
Resident of Putman County community, Adair County, KY
Editor's Note: I had also thought it was the way you spell. And Jason may have had it wrong and I mistyped. Won't play a blame game. I always remembered it as Putman; that's the way Jack and Michael Morris taught me to pronounce it. But somewhere along the way, I got confused, and when I asked a person I thought could speak with authority, I was disappointed to be told "Putnam" was correct. I am actually very relieved to learn that my first impression was correct. . We'll clean up our act. "Putman" it will be. Also, do you know the boundaries? -Ed.
