    Buried McCullough Cemetery, Putnam, County, Indiana, U.S.A. Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Mcullough Cemetery Burials: "Payne, Bennett 7 Jun 1830-21 Jul 1903, age 73 yrs. one mo. 23 days [sic]." The entries in the US Census indicate a birth date of 1825, so perhaps the person who transcribed the stone made an error of five years, seven-eight rather than seventy-five years old at time of death. Chris Ellis, who has provided valuable data on the Payne family, thought the "eight" on the old stone could have weathered into a "three."
