Looking for info about the father of Christopher Potter 3rd of Foster and Scituate RI. He was married to Charlotte Wade (b. 1770 d. after 1848). Date and place of marriage unknown? They were parents of Amos Potter (b. 1801 in Foster d. 1861 in Cranston RI, Elizabeth (widow of Mr. Cozzens, wife of Alexander Smith) - other children?
Christopher Potter 3rd and Charlotte purchased land in Foster from Nicholas Potter (husand of Phebe Wade (father - Abner, Mother - Phebe Hopkins). Nicholas's paretnswere Christopher Potter and Elizabeth Hazard. Nicholas was born in Scituate in 1759 and later moved to NY State.
Questions: Was Nicholas's father Christopher also Christopher 3rd's father? Also the father of Rouse Potter and Simeon Potter? The 1820 Census of Scituate shows some 21 Potter families including Rouse, Christopher, Hannah (possibly John Potter's second wife) and Christopher 3rd.
Any information that can help to answer these qustions would be greatly appreciated.
