Excerpt from The Reward of Patient Love: And Flowers From the Garden of Thought I am a grandson of Gen. Wm, Putnam who, as a Whig, with other leaders made demand on the Canadian and British parliaments for s responsible form of government. The so-called demand and the clash that followed are kwn as the Canadian Rebellion of '37. The Whig obtained that for which they took up arms, but certain leaders were marked. My grandfather was one of these and a price was set on his head. The result of the conflict was, that the Whigs were victors in defeat. They got what they demand, as the price of peace, but the Tories remained in power. During the unsettled period, while amnesties were being arranged and settled, my grandfather remained in Detroit, Mich. He was, however, induced by a Tory, who had professed friendship, to believe that he might safely return to his family and property. He crossed into Canada at Detroit but had t gone far when he found himself surrounded by a large party, led by the Tory who persuaded him to cross. They captured only his body. He was buried where he fell, and near him were buried, his betrayer and six more of those who tried to take him. He left a family of seven children with their mother.
