Sorry to say, I have no additional information on the family. Most of my memorials are from obituaries, photos of monuments or my family history.

RE: Brittain Poteet

Although I'm not related to Brittain as far as I know, I BELIEVE that he is the Brittain Poteet who was born in 1928 in Buchanan County, Missouri and was the son of Brittain Poteet Jr (1902-1968).

The father Brittain Jr is buried in Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver, Colorado, and his Find A Grave memorial is 3366500.

RE: Susan Poteet Boles
I am sorry. I was at the Rulo Cemetery to look for family graves. When Photographing stones at a cemetery I always take extra pictures of stones that catch my eye, either a different stone than around it, Or the name catches my eyes for what reason. I dont live in that area just visiting that day

RE: Poteet
We just had the Willis name for a 2nd husband of Lydia's, her first was named _____ Pink. Do you mean Samual McCorkle insted of Samual Poteet? Thomas was supposed to have been born in KY. I think. There is no reason he would be buried at the Lone Star cem either. We have an old letter that came from Susie Poteet (my gg-grand mother Eliza. Guess Poteet wife of George s/o Thomas) It act like Thomas ran away from home and came out there all alone. Funny a James Poteet that was just the right age to be Thomas's father was living right next to Lydia Forrest McCorkle. All these Poteets have to be related. I have the 1812 pension papers for this James but it was so cut and dried there is virtually no information it. It was the least informative one I have ever seen. It woud be nice too see the deposition you are talking about.

RE: Poteet
I think I found it. Not too likely Thomas was buried in lone star cem. That was probably mixed up with his dau. Elizabeth Guess (wife of Geo) Poteet's fam. I would pay for a dna test on any of these male poteets if anybody could find a donor.

RE: Poteet
I can't find my original message on here. Can you post it for me? Thomas Poteet married Lydia Mccorkle. Dau of John Mccorkle and Lydia Forrest. Lydia Forrest had a nephew named John Mccorkle and he wrote a book "my three years with Quantril. He was 3rd in command with that group. We are trying to find Thomas's burial place (probably Atchison, KS. and his father (probably James Poteet of the same area as the Mccorkles. NW. Missouri)

RE: Jarrett
Hi June, it actually looks more likely that the Gerard Ford who died ca.1684 was Jarrett's three greats grandfather. He was in Westmoreland Co., VA. before Nov.16,1664. In "Cavaliers and Pioneers: Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants" Vol.I (1623-1666), [1st pub.1934], by Nell Marion Nugent, there's
a land patent filed on that date by Francis Grey, for 374 acres
in Westmoreland Co., for transporting 8 persons. The land is described as bounded on the northeast by lands of Capt.John Ashton; William Northall; Garrard Foard; and Grey's own land.
[I think I came across a slightly earlier court case mentioning Garrard Ford in connection with an accusation of card playing, but I'm not sure where it is in my files.] It's of course possible that Garrard, (Gerard), Ford's last name was originally spelled Faure, and he was related to Pierre, But the major problem is
the Goochland Co., line seems to have come to America after Louis XIV's revoking of the Edict of Nantes, Oct.1685, which
had granted religious freedom to non-Catholics in France. If Gerard Ford was of Huguenot ancestry, as the Goochland Co.,
VA line most definitely was, he settled in Virginia well before
the other French protestants.

Jarrett Ford's line direct line seems to be: Warner Ford, whose wife was Cynthia Million; Warner Sr., whose wife was Frances Seaton; Garrard Ford, (d.1746 Westmoreland Co., VA.), wife Elizabeth; [probably another Garrard Ford]; and the Garrard
Ford who died 1684. Garrard Ford who died in 1746 also had
a son Daniel and a daughter Elizabeth, according to his will.
of whom nothing seems to be known, and his son Warner is
supposed to have had, in addition to his son Warner, at least
2 other sons, one possibly named William. I'm sure there were
more children, especially in the generations born before 1700,
but for now there's no way of identifying them. Possibly DNA comparison of direct male line descendants of my Warner Ford with direct male line descendants of other Ford lines, including
the Ford/Faure group, might help.

RE: Jarrett
Hi. it looks like the Peter (Pierre) Ford (Faure) family which settled
in Monroe Co., MO belonged to a family which can be traced back
to Goochland Co., VA.. Jarrett Ford's great-great-grandfather was
in Westmoreland Co., VA by 1670. His land was near a tributary of
the Potomac River and several of George Washington's ancestors were among his neighbors. I can find no connections, at least so far, with the Ford/Faure line from Goochland Co., VA.. The first
wife of Jarrett's younger brother Warner Ford was a Foree, which
might possibly be the same name spelled elsewhere as Faure, but
I can't connect the families right now.

RE: Jarrett
Hi June, Jarrett Ford's father was the brother of 2 of my 4 greats
grandfathers. He moved from Boone Co., IN to Monroe Co., MO.,
with his second wife Nancy, maiden name Threlkeld, about 1872.
I'm not sure about a Faure connection, but I'll check my records further when I get home from work this evening. If my memory
is correct, some of his wife's relatives had already settled there.

I'm not related to these Ford's, but I have a family tree of Ford. I started the tree for the Tirey Ford Americam Legion Post here in Independence, Mo. They have his picture and gravestone, he was killed in France, hanging in the lobby. They knew nothing about him. So I have a good size tree.

RE: dade county
I don't know what to tell you about your Wilsons. They are so common. There were 5 different families of Wilsons in Dade County before the Civil War that I know of. I don't know about any of the Wilsons in Morgan County. The Carl Wilson buried in Wetzel Cemetery (my Wilson Family cemetery) was my first cousin, who died in 1997, but I am almost certain he lived in Kansas City at the time of his passing.

I took a quick look at my copy of "A History of Dade County and Her People" (copyright 1917), and found the following information; J.K., Mary, and Irene Ford were among the founding members of the Lockwood Methodist Church in 1881. And, Cyrus Yoakum was the founding president of the Citizen's Bank of Everton in 1910. The bank had initial capitalization of $10,000. (My how things have changed in a hundred years!)

Neither Ford nor Yoakum are common names in Dade County that I know of. Sorry I am of no more help than that. Please feel free to email me if you wish, if you have other folks in Dade Co, MO I might be of assistance with. Many thanks!

RE: stephen ford
Sorry, June. I know nothing about the Ford family. I sometimes work in and among the Find A Grave memorials in Middlefork, Clinton Co, IN. Best guess is that somebody I was working on appeared in that household listed in the census, so I captured and posted the image -- then decided it might help people looking for others in the same family, so I posted it on their memorials too. Good luck with your search.

Added by Jay Wright on Feb 20, 2014 1:42 PM

RE: Fords
Hi! Honestly, I don't think there is a connection. My Fords settled in the SC area way way way way way back. The Reuben name came from another branch of the family (Jacksons - also very far back in the SC region). Thanks for contacting me, though!
