Isabella Putt was the daughter of John and Susannah (nee Hart). She was born in New Plymouth in 1861, which makes her the right age to be the Isabella referred to here. She died in 1962 at the age of 101 years and is buried in Te Henui cemetery (plot 5309). She was my 1st 4x removed. (Her grandparents were my 4 x great grandparents)
