Looking for any information pertaining to John Stanford Potter--he lived in the Hays community in Paducah, Kentucky, which no longer exists. He was married to Oney Choice and married Catherine Fristoe after Oney's death.

What time period? What info do you already have, and what do you need?

The term "any information" often causes volunteer responders to do a lot of unnecessary work on ground that the requester has already covered.

John Stanford Potter was my 2nd great grandfather the son of Thomas Potter (1806-1859) and Matilda Ann Garland (1805-1838). John was born around 1830 in Warren, Kentucky--he had 3 siblings and 3 half siblings, all of which are well documented with the exception of John Stanford. John Stanford married Oney Choice (1835-around 1883)from Trigg County, Kentucky on 17 Nov 1853, which means he relocated to McCracken, Kentucky prior to 1853. The 1870 census shows John Stanford residing in the Hays precinct of McCracken County. I am unable to loacte any information on the Hays precinct or Hays community--I know the approx. of the location but have no proof. In addition I have documentation on John Stanford and Oney Choices children. The real mystery here--Oney Choice died somewhere around 1883 (no proof) and John Stanford married Catherine Fristoe Drew, the widow of Dr. Hosea Drew in the Boaz-Viola area of Graves County, Kentucky. My great grandmother, Cora Potter was born to this union on May 12, 1885--to complicate matters further, Catherine either died during child birth or shortly after. The marriage (no proof) would have occured prior to May of 1885 and John Stanford would have probably relocated to Graves County. My great grandmother was reared by half sisters of the John Stanford and Oney Choice union. I am unable to locate any information pertaining to John Stanford after 1880, Oney Choice after 1880 or Catherine Fristoe after 1880. Any information would be most appreciated.

The Hays precinct is not in McCracken , but in Hickman in 1870. The Hays precinct is now part of Carlisle county. It may have been listed in McCracken before 1840, but not after.

1880 is the last census and it states the enumeration district as 128 and the county as McCracken. I have no proof, but what little information I have been told--this precinct was located in McCracken County on what is present day around the intersection of Blandville Road and Friendship Road. The same location in the 1900 census became the Lang precinct--my grandfather, Caroll Gip Givens was actually buried in 1935 in what is now an abandoned cemetery presently on the campus of Paducah Community College or what is an extension of the University of Kentucky, which would have been very close to this location as well.

I found an item in the Paducah Sun, dated Sept. 8, 1903, page 3, stating that:

John Potter has been appointed and qualified as the guardian of Cora Potter.

This site has search capabilities from the Paducah Sun from around 1898-1910(?). Kentuckciana Digital Library

It won't let me post the entire link.
