------------------------------------

"John Potts settled on a plantation on Six-Mile Run, then in Mecklenburg County, but now included within the limits of Union County. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and was engaged in the battle of Hanging Rock, in South Carolina. He married Nancy Houston, who is said to have been ten years of age when her parents emigrated from Ireland. The will of Agnes Potts, dated 1830, is on record in Mecklenburg County. Whether she was identical with Nancy Houston or was a second wife of James Potts is not clear in the light of present information. In the will she mentions each of her eight children."
