"Ellen's parents both were born in Kentucky. Joseph Oct 14, 1894 and Sallie in 1793. I know Joseph's parents were Pottinger Catholics from Maryland. There is some history on the Pottinger Catholics. I am a direct descendant of Joseph and Sallies. They are my 5 X great grandparents. Please feel free to contact me directly for more Thralls family information.
