Memorial# 120844363 - Mary Unknown Potts
I'm confused about this burial of Mary "Thomaston" Potts in Virginia in 1720. I can't find any verification that maiden name of the 1st wife of Jonas Potts was Thomaston and that she died in 1720 in Virginia is also odd as Jonas Potts was still in Philadelphia County in 1722 when he signed as a witness to the marriage of his niece Elizabeth Potts to Peter Cleaver Jr and a Petition at the Court of Quarter Sessions for a road from French Creek to Philadelphia along the Schuylkill River; in 1726 he signed as a witness to the marriage of Richard Jacobs and Barbara Woolrush in now Montgomery County; in 1727 he signed a Quitclaim deed with his 2nd wife Mary (Burson) Potts regarding her deceased father George's land in Gilberts Manor to Harman IndeHaven at Limerick and he also signed a loan book in Philadelphia in 1737. On 29 Apr 1740 he requested a certificate of removal from Gwynedd Mtg to ? unstated for himself and his wife, but it was denied on 27 May 1740. The earliest records of his children being in VA are his sons Jonas and David Potts in 1746; Jonathan by 1752. I'd appreciate any help with this - thanks! Claudia

Do you mean Stoke Bruerne, South Northamptonshire Borough, Northamptonshire, England as a page for that church already exists?

John Fortune
You have Thomas Fortune as John's father. However John was born in 1658 and Thomas was born in 1678. Thomas is John's son not his father. It appears to be a loop in your data.

Potts cemetery
You created a new cemetery called Potts cemetery in Hillsboro. There is Old Potts cemetery where David Potts is believed to be buried. There is a monument there for him. As far as Jonas Potts Sr. and Mary Thomaston Potts what sources did you use to indicate where they are buried? Did you mean to place all of these in Old Potts cemetery? I have never found any records of a Potts cemetery and would like to know if these two,are the same cemetery. Have you been to either cemetery? I visited Old Potts last Novemeber. A lot of my ancestors (and probably yours) are buried there.

George Snyder
Dorthy's Birthplace
How can she be born in Rehoboth when that place was not occupied by English, or even whites in the stated date of 1584. Seems that most histories I have been privy to over the years indicate that non-native americans did not exist in this area until 1620 and beyond.

Dorothy Brown
There seems to be much confusion I know on the spouse of Dorothy Brown, but I think if you do your history research you will find that Dorothy Brown was married to John Brown who also died in Swanea about 11 to twelve years earlier. John Brown owned a sizeable estate in Swansea, MA as he was instrumental in the early dealings of the Plymouth Colony. Both came from England about 1626-27,

Sylvia Millard
The Millard family
For some reason your e-Mail from last year popped back into my new mail. I can't remember if I made contact with you are not. My husband, now deceased, was the Millard. He had no real knowledge of his father or his father's family, because of a rather bad divorce of his parents when he was 4 years old. Since my husband's death in 2008, I have had the opportunity to follow the Millard family back to the 1200's.
Here is what you asked me about.
George Kerst, Jr. married Mary Ehrgood
Samuel Millard married their daughter Elinor
Their child was Jeremiah Millard who married Elizabeth Price. Their child was Truman Millard who married Olive Veihdorfer. Their child was Malcolm Millard, my husbands father who married Elizabeth Kochis, his mother. They divorced.
After my husband was grown, Elizabeth married a second time to George Walsh, no relation to my husband.
The Millard history is fascinating in two areas for me. Firstly, going back to Joseph Millard, who was my husband's 5th Great Grandfather, he was married to Hannah Lincoln, making my husband a second cousin, 5x removed from Abraham Lincoln. My husband never knew this,for which I am sad. And, secondly, the Millards came to America from Lincolnshire, England along with the Gilmores, the Lincolns, the Boones and all of the settled in Berks, Pa. The Gilmores were the forebears of the President's Bush and were also married to the Millards. And, maybe the final point of interest is that all of my ancestors came from the British Isles, particularly England. As I got back to the 1500's, I began to see that my husband and I had many ancestors in common, both families in the Royal bloodlines. My husband came from Pa to Ohio and I am from Miss and Fla. That we would have common roots is kind of amazing to me. Let me hear from you. I would love to know more abot the Kerst's as they kind of end after a few generations and I know very little about them.
I am sure you are kin to my husband through Elinor Kerst.
Sincerely, Sylvia

RE: Simeon Carroll - addendum
I've located a scanned copy of the Pennant district history book from the 1980's. An entry for Simeon Carroll can be found at this address:

I think you'll have to copy and paste it into your browser.

Take care.

Simeon Carroll - Memorial #69217931

I am in the process of catalogueing the Pennant Cemetery in Pennant, Saskatchewan, Canada. I have found the Carroll family plot, but there is no visible monument for either Simeon or Mary Carroll. There are stones for Simeon's son Clive, his wife, and two of their children. I have created entries for this family at Find-a-Grave, including photos of the headstones.

There is an entry for this family in a local history of the Pennant area, and I can forward more information if you desire.

The 1916 Census of Canada shows Mary Carroll as having been born in Ontario of English descent, about 1866. This census shows Simeon as born in Ontario, of Irish descent, as opposed to 1851 in your Find-a-Grave entry.

I hope all is well with you.

I have no idea how to reply to this. Where are you seeing the name "Ellen"? Please provide the memorial# of the person that you are talking about. I looked at Jack Potts that is buried in Potts Cemetary at Kinderhook. There is no mention of any "Ellen".

Hi Darlene,
What was the birth and/or death year of the Jack Potts that you say was married to Ellen Potts? What was the birth and/or death year of Ellen Potts? What was her maiden name?

I know that there is a Jack Potts (1872-1917) in Potts Cemetery at Kinderhook that was married to Della Mae Oakley Potts. This Jack Potts was the son of Miles and Missouri Potts, who are buried closeby.
There is a Jackie Potts in Potts at Tanyard cemetery with an unknown birth year and a death date of 1917. The transcription says that he was 54 years old, so he would have been born sometime around 1863.
Sorry, I don't have any record of a Ellen Potts.
Hope this helps in your search
