This set a example and Grave Law in all America!

His first bill he submitted, sponsored, and was passed was the Virginia Cemetery Bill, which forbade any destruction and/or plowing them under of them!

He alone saved the Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo silvestris) from being becoming extinct when he was Chairman of Virginian Wildlife. Yes this is the Bird which the Country TURKEY attained that name. Tom, hen , and poults all.
Benjamin Franklin wanted this as our national Bird.

Jonathan Hodgkin Bartlett
We've probably also got common relatives via our Lowell, Massachusett connection. See Find A Grave record for Jonathan Hodkgin Bartlett. I would LOVE to find the gravestones for his parents, Artemas Powers Bartlett and Julia Hodkin Bartlett of Bristol, Maine with some relatives in Lowell, Massachusetts too. See image captions for Lois Bartlett Reed and her kin. Their sepia portrait photos were also taken in Lowell, Massachusetts photography studios. Excellent detail spelled out in captions of images I have uploaded.

Likely Rev. Aaron Potter and wife Frances Augusta Shaw Potter from Fort Edward, NY are related to your NY Potters. Many many are buried in Union Cemetery. Nice photo volunteer Nicole even made notes of relative positions of the gravestones of Potters buried in Indianapolis, most of whom are related to Merritt Ashmun Potter. All these folks have memorials with good images on Find-a-Grave. If you see any images you like that I have uploaded you are welcome to use them.

Your Potter cousin and perhaps a relation via Bristol, Maine and Lowell, Massachusetts Bartletts.

Our Potter connection
Dear Jonathan,

Yes, we are Potter cousins somehow. See the Find A Grave memorial for Rev. Aaron Potter and his wife Frances Augusta Potter Shaw (also a Potter and Shaw further up her line). On images for these two I posted page from Potter genealogy book about their lineage. From there you can figure out how closely your Potters are to my Potters. See also my captions in each of the images I have uploaded to Rev. and Mrs. Potter's memorials as well as information in the "flowers" notes about them.

Is Madeline born Potter your closest Potter relative? Potters are one of the oldest colonial families so therefore they're all intermarried with all the other very old English colonial families. My lines up from Jonathan Hodgkins Bartlett and Rev. Aaron Potter and his wife all go back to earliest English immigrants to the colonies. See information about William Potter of New Haven, Connecticut English immigrant ancestor of my Potters.

All information about my Potters I have revealed in captions to images I have uploaded as well as biographies of my Potter/Shaw relatives from Fort Edwards, NY.

Warm Potter wishes from your cousin somehow,

Thank you.
