I have a book in my possession that is POTTER Genealogy in America. The chapters it covers are:
1) Anthony Potter of Ipswitch Mass Desc
2) George Potter of Portsmouth, R.I. Desc
3) George Potter of Lancaster, England Desc
4) Ichabod Potter of Portsmouth R.I. Desc
5) John and Wm Potter of New Haven, CT Desc
6) Martn Potter of South Shields, England Desc
7) Martin Potter of Phil, PA Desc
8) Nathaniel Potter of Portsmouth, R.I. Desc
9) Nicholas Potter of Lynn, Mass Desc
10) Robert Potter of Warwich, RI and Desc

I would be glad to do look ups if you have full names and dates. The more information, the better, but be kind. There are thousands of names in this book.My gr-gr-grandfather, Edmund Darrow married Elizabeth Potter of R.I. and my gr-grandfather was George Potter Darrow.

The book shows a Georgianna Potter, born March 27, 1853 in Plainfield, Conn. married a Henry Belding. Her Parents were William H Potter and Elizabeth D. Parkhurst. William H. Potter. born Oct 25, 1818 married Elizabeth Nov. 21, 1839. His parents were Oliver C. Potter and Phebe Burroughs.Oliver C b. Sept 23, 1795 d. March 14, 1822 m. Phebe Dec. 28, 1817. His parents were Nehemiah Potter and Rhoda Castel.It does not go back directly from there, but it is listed under George Potter of Portsmouth R.I. who came from England. Hope this helps. Book ends in 1888, so nothing after Georgianna.

Thank you for your response. I do have quite a bit of info going forward from Georgianna Potter if this is part of your family tree. You mention that your grandfather married Elizabeth Potter. Is this any relation to the Elizabeth Parkhurst that married William Potter. Again, thank you very much for the information.

Do you show a George Potter born in CT in 1812, apparently attended Yale. Moved to Mississippi before the Civil War.

We have traced family that far back, but have not been able to find his ancestors.
