30820732 Drewy Potter
You are my last hope... I have a listing for John Thomas Potter. He is listed at and in the Lenoir county cemeteries as the son of Drewy Potter and Mary Jane Deaver. He is buried near his mother. BUT he was born in 1874, 10 years after you have Drewy's death. There was also another son, Martin Luther, born in 1877. The other 3 children:
Mary Jane Potter Hill (1854 - 1912)
John T. Potter (1860 - 1861)
Daniel E. Potter (1864 - 1905)
were all born prior to the 1864 death date. has Drewy's death as prior to 1880 in Craven County, NC. , as does another web site.

Can you tell me where you got his death date of Aug. 25, 1864? Is there a chance that he did not die with his unit and fathered the last two children? Or did Mary re-marry to a brother of Drewy which was a common thing back then? I am trying to be accurate, but sometimes family history should be re-named as family MYSTERY! Many thanks. I look forward to hearing from you.
Robin in alabama - yes, I am kin to the Potter's, too.

Please add parents
Could you please add the parents of Concha T. Gallegos (#21237238)? Her father was Ramon J. Tenorio (#21246306). Her mother was Josefita Sandoval Tenorio (#38649563).

I was delighted to see your picture of the couple. May I please ask for permission to use it in my family tree? I would also be interested in any other pictures you might have.

RE: Ernest Radford Adams
Reference the other Find A Grave member with the dupes, I've sent her notes to remove them, but your best bet is to send a note to Find A Grave and let them know she is not responding, and they'll delete them for you.

Ernest Radford Adams
Bob, thanks for the heads-up on the duplicate. That graver has many duplicates created after the original memorials. I have asked for her duplicates to be removed before but get no response. Frustrating.

RE: Baron McKaughan
No need to transfer Baron. . . .was just providing some more info. :-)

Always wondered where his middle name DeCalb (DeKalb) name originated. Probably will never know.

RE: Mattie Quinn Potter
As far as George Allen and his wife/children, all the information on their household can be verified from census records. I have been in contact over the years with multiple descendants of his children who verified my info - they were the ones who originally corrected my connection of George to the Carters. My husband is the great-grandson of Alonza Allen Quinn (one of George's children). I know I mixed up George W. (Winnifred Carter line) and George A. because their birth year appears the same on some census records. My husband's George, George Allen Quinn, had 13 children with Sarah (Sallie) Moody. They are as follows: Nancy Elizabeth, Adelin Winnifred, James Allen, William Ivy, John Henry, Sarget Edwards, Barbary Allin, George Franklin, Mary Catherine, Alonza Allen, Susan Idella, Furney Lawton, Myrtie Winnifred.

Mattie Quinn Potter
The siblings attached to Mattie Quinn Potter are incorrect. I see this mistake a lot (having made it myself when I started researching 15 years ago).

Mattie was the child of John Henry Quinn and Clarissa Alphin Quinn. Her siblings were Mack, John Allen, Stella, Henry, Robert. She was the grandaughter of George Allen Quinn and Sarah (Sallie) Moody Quinn. A lot of people begin their mistake with George's line, attaching George to Enoch Quinn/Winifred Carter. This is not correct.

I saw the messages you've left Wayne Hamm about grave corrections. I thought I'd let you know he is inactive and won't make corrections. You'll have to go through the editor at Find a Grave.

Manuel Tenorio Sr.
You maintain the memorial for this gentleman -- Find A Grave Memorial# 89053687. There is a wealth of information about him, much of which I have never seen before. I am curious how you confirmed the parentage of his mother. Who is father was. Why he ceased using the name Ortiz & began using the name Tenorio.

My husband is descended from Juan de Mata and Maria Juana Ortega. I have been looking for information about them for a few years now.

Please feel free to email me at
