1) I assume that you mean "Moultrieville" (in Charleston County SC).

2) What, specifically, about the POTTERs in Charleston County are you looking for? There are 29 POTTERs in Charleston County in 1900, 36 POTTERs in Charleston County in 1910. (According to Ancestry.com censuses indexes)

I am interested in any information I can obtain on the Potter family from Moultrieville (Sullivans Island) South Carolina. I am the granddaughter of Mattie Potter. Her father was Eugene Potter born in Walterboro South Carolina.
I have been researching my dad's mother and her father for many years.I have very limited information on them.I have seen other Potters on the Island and in Charleston but had no documentation or information to connect them to my family because of my limited information on Mattie and Eugene. I would truly appreciate informationon their relatives.I have no knowledge of any extended family.
I never lived there and have run into many brick walls. Are you related to the Potters? Are you researching the Potter family?
