Children of Benjamin & Anne Marie I'm doing research on Lanham's. Can you tell me if Benjamin and Anne Marie had a son named James L (Lewis?) born about 1854? I have a Virginia death certificate for James Lanham that indicates his fathers name was Benjamin "Lanaham" and mother was Anna Stewart, both of whom were born in Maryland. Thanks! Carolyn
I'm sure you have seen Find A Grave# 102656848 for the First Samuel Pottenger/Pottinger. Of the eight kids he had, Sam Jr. 1718-1820 went to VA, KY and then died in Ohio (most kept the "e" spelling) with many offspring. Robert (1729-1780) went to VA, died there, and all his offspring went on to KY and settled in Nelson Co. Not much is known about the other 6 kids. I will check with my cousins Tom Pottenger(in Ohio) and Bill Reynolds (in KY) who are the top 2 family historians. My great grand uncle Samuel Forest Pottinger (in the 1930's) had spent most of his life tracing the footsteps of when all the Pottengers left Princes George County. He authored many papers about it. Sam Jr and Robert must have documented their adventures quite well, this is why we know so many details about them thanks to Samuel Forest preserving that info. I will try to find out more.
