John C. Putnam
Gospel Preacher In East Alabama & West Georgia
It was my privilege to conduct a gospel meeting in Collinsville, Alabama in June, 2013. While there some of the brethren were talking about preachers of the past who influenced the churches in the area. The name J.C. Putnam came up time and again in conversation. Brother Putnam did much work in east Alabama and west Georgia in his life. More information is needed to put together a lasting tribute to him, his life and influence. If anyone has any information they would care to share, and make available for this site, it would certainly enhance the memory of this good man.
