Tiffany Butler
Barnhill Family
Dear Darlene Potts,
Hello!! My name is Tiffany Butler. I'm currently working on my family's genealogy. I noticed on Vachel Bonnie Barnhill (1792-1876)'s find a grave memorial page (# 63002982) that you commented that he was a relative of yours. I'm hoping you can answer some of my questions.
I know on Vachel Bonnie Barnhill's find a grave memorial page it doesn't link his sibling I'm looking for. So, do you know if he had a sibling by the name Benjamin Barnhill (he was born abt. 1790 or 1794 in Greenville, South Carolina and he died about 1864 in maybe Arkansas). Benjamin supposedly married Elizabeth ? and had supposedly 6 children. The 6 children were: 1)Benjamin Jr (1820 in NC-1894 in AR)-he married Francis Dunlap(had supposedly 11 children- I know for sure 1 and that was Absalom Harrison; they were: {1)Absalom Harrison(1867-1942(he married Sarah Viola "Sadie" Herman-had 4 children: [1-Beualh "Bula" (1893-1968)(she married Chester Stone); 2-Clarice "Clara"(1846-1978)(she married Charlie Stanhope); 3-Harry Otis/Ottis(1898-1987)(he married Nellie Maud McNemar); and 4-Edna(1908-1989)(she married Ernest "Lee" Norris-had 7 children)]; 2)Sarah J.(abt. 1856 in TX-?); 3)Alice Levonia(1859-1938)(she married Victor Valley);4)Thomas(abt. 1858 or 1859); 5) Nancy Jane(abt. 1859,1861, or 1862 in AR-?); 6) Mariah Idalia ďDailyĒ or Idalia (1863 in AR or MO-?); 7) Hillard Davis ďDavisĒ(abt. 1863, 1866, or 1865 in MO or AR-?); 8) Josephine Lousia(abt. 1869 or 1870 in AR-?); 9) Bird or Birl(abt.1870 in AR-?); 10)William(abt. 1872 in AR-?); and 11) James Monroe(abt. 1874 in AR-?)}; 2) Mariah(abt. 1823-?); 3)Nancy (abt. 1825-?); 4)Sarah E.(abt. 1832-?); 5)Manerva or Manirva J. (abt. 1836-?); and 6)Thomas (?-?).
Iím trying to figure out if my information is correct. I also have questions on the parents and grandparents of this family. But, Iíll ask those questions in another email.
I tried emailing you, but it wouldn't go through. Please email me back at
I canít wait to hear from you soon, and learn more about this family (hopefully anyway-right now Iím super confused). .
Thank you for your time,
Tiffany Butler

8/20/16 Darlene: Trish Smith here
I believe we talk to each other on FB, but I haven't been on much for the past 2-3 mos.

My mother: Nora Eudora (Layne) Williams
My maternal grandmother: Gracie Enon Potts
Gracie's parents: William Nicholas & Ola Eudora (Luckett) Potts
William Nicholas Potts parents: Miles & Missouri Zuella (Lavender) Potts
Miles Potts' parents: John Calvin & Martha Patsy (Humphrey) Potts
John Calvin Potts parents: James Potts & Susannah (Absher) Potts, Sr.

I did the "Origins" test, the one they advertised heavily for this past year (2015). So I am finding out a little more info. from that.

On my mother's father's side, Brown James Layne, I did a blood test on brother, my Uncle BJ, the oldest & only living male of her father's "Layne" side. The Layne's go back to Hugh Brogan, Ireland (I think the 1600's or 1700's, I have so many family trees I'm researching I cannot remember it all exactly).

I have a couple of pics of William Nicholas & Ola Eudora (Luckett) Potts, none of his brothers or sisters. None of Ola's family that I know of.

I have no pics of John Calvin or Martha Patsy (Humphrey) Potts.

I have no pics of James Potts Sr or wife Martha Patsy (Humprhey) Potts.

I'd love to see ANY pics that you MAY have of any of these fore fathers.

My home phone is: 615) 230-7077; if you'd ever like to talk. I do NOT KNOW family history as well as my mother did as she was born 12/5/1921 & grew up with more contact with her grandparents: William Nicholas & Ola Eudora (Luckett) Potts.

Perhaps we'll "chat" on FB again. I'm not on much. Too time consuming. I did make up a FB page for the "Potts Family Cemetery".

Susan Taylor Memorial 114966875
Darlene, Susan is my 13x great grandmother. You have correctly identified John Taylor as her spouse and Rowland Taylor as her son. However, you have also identified Rowland as an additional spouse. Obviously her son Rowland can not also be her spouse. Please make this correction. I tried to send this message to your AOL e-mail but apparently your AOL account is no longer valid.

Thank you for your contributions to Find A Grave,

Please check the death date of George, Sr. January 1589 is before his sons were born.

Thanks, Gay Hockman

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
