Robert Hazard (Sr), his wife Mary Slokum and their son, Potter, are buried in a tiny graveyard in a field on Russell Road, East Dunham, Qc, on their original homestead land. They died one day apart in 1836 (Dec. 19th and 20th respectively). The graveyard is maintained by the Missisquoi Historical Society. Robert Hazard Jr and his wife Phoebe Wing are buried in the All Saints Anglican Cemetery in the village of Dunham, as are their children Robert (3rd) and Sarah Hazard Selby. I know that Robert Jr also had a son named after his brother, Potter, but don't have info this younger Potter.

Robert Sr and Mary had 3 other children who all married siblings of the Thomas family of Rhode Island before emigrating all together to this area of Canada: Desire Hazard m Peleg Thomas, Thomas Hazard m. Deborah Thomas, Elizabeth Hazard m. Jeffrey Thomas. I believe that Potter Sr married very late in life to Lucy Malvina Clark - 35 yrs his junior. She is buried in the Abbot's Corner Cemetery.

The name Potter seems to originate from a Martha Potter, first wife of Thomas
Hazard of Rhode Island - her death sometime before 1675, as that is the year he remarried to Martha Sheriff.

I guided graveyard tours for the MHS (mentioned above) back in the early 2000's. The Hazard was one of the most interesting albeit one of the smallest.
