A Putman Family Quandary

A Putman Family Quandary

Using Family Search I found a Dora Putman/Dolenson, on her marriage record in 1903 to George Wallace, with her parents listed as John Putman & Marilla Cooke.  I have not found a birth record for a Dora Putman born to a John Putman & Marilla Cooke.  Do you know who this Dora Putman is?

I also found Dora Putman in the 1880 census in Ionia Michigan working as a servant.  Her daughter Pearl Putman is also living in the Wallace household. 
If Dora is not a daughter of John & Marilla Putman then why would she have put them as her parents on the Marriage certificate?

On the above mentioned marriage certificate the witnesses of the marriage are a Mrs Pearl Stearns & Ormond Donelson.
If you can help with this Putman Quandary please do. 
The comment section at the bottom of this post will do.
