Arthur J Potas
Thank you so much for the wonderful history that you have listed on your memorials. You told me so much about Arthur that I could not find in the newspapers or on Ancestry.

Arthur was married to my great grandmother's niece, Elizabeth Metz. Elizabeth's parents were Frank Metz and Matilda Koch. Frank's occupation was a mason. Elizabeth was the youngest of 11 and her mother died when she was 10 years old.

Elizabeth died on July 7 1959 and she is buried in Mt. Calvary Cemetery. It is a Catholic cemetery on the border of the city of Buffalo and town of Cheektowaga, New York.

I was thinking that Arthur may have met Elizabeth if he traveled to the Pillsbury Flour mill in Buffalo. That is just a guess.

Thanks again.

# 24279607 Eugene Otten. He is a cousin to my aunt. Eugene and His father Samuel Otten died at the scene of the accident, and Althea died a couple days later . SD death lists their death per the ones I sent. Sept 29, 1945 for Eugene and Samuel, Oct 1 for Althea. She said the funeral was for all three at the same time.
very sad.
