Query: Henry PUTNAM of Reading, MA

One of our newest members has asked us to post the following query:

Does anyone have documentation on Henry Putnam, born 1778/85 in Reading, MA, and died after 1850 in (probably) Harrington? His lineage is Deacon Henry Putnam, Deacon Daniel Putnam, Rev. Daniel Putnam, Capt. Benjamin Putnam, Deacon Nathaniel Putnam to John Putnam, born 1579 or 80 in England. I have extensive information on Maine Putnam/Ficketts and most of these Salemite Putnams which I'd love to share.
