J.G. Cook & D.V. Putnam--guests at Broadway House Hotel

The "From the Hotels" section of the paper for 13th September 1888 listed several familiar names among those at the Broadway House hotel.   J. G. Cook is Jefferson Gideon Cook(son of Wm C Cook and Elizabeth Putman) and D V Putnam is J. G. Cook's 1st cousin(the son of William Putman, brother of Elizabeth.)  David Vance spelled his surname as Putnam rather than Putman.  If, as some believe, Wm Putman's wife was the sister of Wm C. Cook, then Gideon and David Vance were double 1st cousins.  According to the 1888 city directory L W. Russell was the proprietor of the Broadway House hotel which was located at 413 Broadway.
