Roehm guides the reader through an interpretation of some 174 letters among the Putnam Catlin family members during the early 19th century. The life and times of famous George Catlin, sure, but how was he thought of by his siblings and controlling puritanical parents? Even if your goal is strictly research, you wont be able to avoid being caught up in the drama of Eliza Catlin Dart’s struggles in wild Wisconsin. Names, dates, and places are all here, but nothing is spoon-fed with charts. Polly and Putnam Catlin had 14 children including George; all who survived are heard from or addressed. If your ancestor is second oldest child Henry Catlin…beware.
