Putnam County was created in 1849. It was Florida's 28th county created from
parts of St. Johns, Alachua, Orange, Duval, and Marion counties. The county was named for Benjamin A. Putnam, who
was a soldier in the First Seminole War, a lawyer, Florida legislator, and the first president of the Florida Historic
Society. The Putnam County Historical Society has determined that Benjamin A. Putnam is the grandson of Israel
Putnam, for whom other counties and places in the United States are named. Benjamin A. Putnam died in the county
seat of Palatka in 1869. [Source: wikipedia]
