I am posting this because of several errors I see on Rootsweb Connect Trees pertaining to these Barr's. My interest is through Eveline Potter whose father Pardon Potter was a brother of my 2g gf Uriah Potter.

Martha Ellen Barr (12/6/1863 - 2/13/1934) married Smith McGinnis Potter on 12/7/1879 in Bates Co. Missouri. They are my paternal great grandparents.
My gg-grandfather Samuel Gray Potter and Pardon are likely brothers. Smith M. Potter is Samuel's son. I suspect they were cousins, but still doing early research. If you have info on Pardon and Uriah, please contact me. Interesting lot, the Potter family.

Your great grandmother Martha Ellen.... Do you have her death record or have you seen it?
Missouri has scanned the death records 1910 - 1961 and I was just looking at her death record. I found it interesting that she died in the State Hospital. She had lived in that hospital over 14 years. The informant on the record was a employee of the hospital, not one of her children. Wonder why one of her children didn't sign it and give information.
Why not drop me a line at marysueeulitz@prodigy.net. Thanks for your information and let me know what you do have on you gg gf Samuel Gray Potter's siblings.
