I may be reaching here but I have an Andrew J. Potter b. 5/10/1821
in Indiana and d. 6/25/1887 in Kansas. At some point he moved to
Illinois where he married Elizabeth Wingfield. Their oldest child
was named Ephraim and I am curious if there is any relation or just
a coincidence. Do you know if any of the Potter's you have went
to Indiana? On the 1820 census index there are 17 Potter's listed.

for any help.
