Bobby Wayne Smith,is a 5th Generation Texan,
and the 4th Great-Grandson of T.R.H.Poteet;
who migrated from Middle Tennessee of Overton County,Tennessee to Texas, to what became Paris, Lamar County, Texas.
T.R.H.Poteet was accredited for naming Paris by
The Lamar County Historical Society. T.R.H.Poteet
also held the seat of County Treasurer during the Civil War Period.
I spend a lot of time researching The Poteet Family Geneology and The Rich Histories of our Families Heritage.I have been to several of the Southern East States taken Grave Photo's of many of our Poteet Families. I Hope those who visit this site will enjoy all the hard work and time and money that has been put fourth in this effort.
I also encourage Our Poteet Families to Leave Family Portraits of those who have gone before us,so that thier memory will not be forgotten. The hard work that I have put fourth is done out of the Love I have for all our Families. My Goal is to record as many Poteet family members as Possable. Thank You and I hope you enjoy the Photo's. Please Contact me if you have any Imformation you would like to share.

|Sarah Graham||Ezra and Addie Poteet|
I see that you have Ezra and Addie listed as being buried in the Pine Grove cemetery. They are my great grandparents and they are buried in the Pine Grove United Baptist Church cemetery which probably was supposed to be the same one, but they are listed in both cemeteries.

Hi Bobby, my mamaw Poteet's maiden name was actually 'Canter' rather than 'Ganter'. You have her listed as Blanche Ganter Poteet. Is is possible for you to edit her name to Blanche Canter Poteet? Thank you very much! And thanks for all the work you have done for the Poteet Families! Elizabeth (Hedrick, Poteet) Cochrane
My Willis family in Missouri intermarried with the Poteet family & I have considered the possibility that my g=g=g grandmother Catherine Willis may have been a Poteet (among many possibilities) I believe my Poteets came from Lee Co VA but there is a strong possibility of Native American ancestry in this family - surnames Willis, Cates, McCorkle, Martin & Poteet. I can supply quite a bit of info but am getting nowhere with my quest to id Catherine & her husband, let alone any Native ancestry. Would love to exchange info with anyone interested.
