While researching this line of my family at the genealogy room in the Watertown, Ny (Jefferson County) library I came across a paper in their Fall file. I do not know how accurate it is or who wrote it but I would like to share it.
I also have a few letters that were written to the library from people looking for info on the Fall line. I will be happy to scan and e-mail them to anyone who requests them. In addition, I have pictures that I took last summer of Anson Potter's, Elizabeth Fall Potter's and Newman Potter's cemetery plots from a cemetery in Brownsville that I am willing to share. E-mail Casey at firstname.lastname@example.org
if interested. Below is the document that I found at the Watertown Library, word for word. I had believed that Abbey Fall Potter was the daughter of Henry Sr. This paper indicates that Henry Jr. was her father. Does anyone have proof either way?
Henry Hatevil Fall, Jr., son of Henry Hatevil Fall, Sr.

There are probably other children
