Horace was adopted by John and Mary Potter. His birth parents are James P. Ross born 1855 and Julia A. Hastings Born 1856. He was left on the doorstep of John and Mary Potter after his mother, Julia, had a mental breakdown and his father, James, couldn't care for him. John and Mary Potter were going to turn him over to an orphanage because they believed that they were too old to care for another child. After seeing the conditions of the local orphanages, they decided to raise Horace. Horace ended up marrying his adopted father's granddaughter. (from Dave R.)
