Classification: Query
Surnames: Reed, O'Rourke
Frank O'Rourke (1887-1981) was my great uncle. His sister Mae (1893-1931) was my father's mother. I spent the summers of 1959-60 with my granddad Bill (William David Reed, 1893-1977) and visited Frank and Jerene's ranch in Chadron several times. On the walls of their house were displayed several pictures of Spade Ranch cowboys from the turn of the century, about which Frank wrote in "Retracing Old Trails." One of the names I recall seeing was "Emery Potts." My dad's first name was Emery (and is mine as well). There are no other Emerys in my lineage, so I have always wondered who Emery Potts was and why my grandparents may have named my dad after him. Would appreciate any insight.
