    • The 1860 Federal Census doesn't record if a person is married or not, so we can't tell from this census form if he was. His wife Phoebe doesn't appear on the form with him. But I believe he married ca. 1850-1855, which would fit the births of his children.

  • Notes 
    • There is some controversy over whether Garrett H. and Jared Isaac Puffer are the same person. The 1851 Federal Census seems to indicate that they are. There is no conclusive proof (yet) that this is so. I have continued to separate them (mainly due to the name of wives and birth dates).
