Hello My great grandfather was Potato John Raymond...He had two wives as far I know mine being with the second wife...His second wife and him had 10 children one of them being my Grandfather Thomas Edmond Raymond...Bonanza Co..If you have any more information please let me know...Some of my aunts where doing the research but I have lost touch..I know I have a Half brother and sister from a son of Thomas edmond raymond and would love to get in contact with them as well..
Potato John Raymond was one of the Ferdinand V. Hayden party members. He got his name as he was the Cook at the time and was known for the ability to cook a Potato any way in High Altitude conditions..Standing to Far Left (pic)
