Suzanne- My ancestor, John Hart lived "next door" to John Potts in PA. John Potts. your ancestor founded most of the forges (iron works)in the US. including Valley Forge. The descendant you want to contact is Barbara Potts Paris )Screen name Kashathree @aol.com
She still represents the town of Pottsville. PA at their celebrations at all their celebrations.
I am Suzanne Tucker-Potts and am new to this list. I recently stumbled upon some of my ancestors in Hopkins County and thought I would give this list a try to help with them.
My 2nd great grandfather, John W Green (born October between the years of 1847 - 1852 in Kentucky) is believed to have lived in Hopkins County around 1870 - 1880. He is believed to be the son of Martin (born about 1812 in Kentucky) and Clark (born about 1815 in Virginia), husband of Mary A (born about Feb 1845 - 1848 in Virginia) and father of John W, Samuel, Lewis, Alice Minnie (could be two children or just one) and Everett. By 1900, Mary had given birth to 10 children, 6 of which were living (born between 1868 - 1885).
I have found this family (or what I believe to be this family) on the following census records:
1860 Webster County, Kentucky - John was living with his parents Martin and Clark
1870 Hopkins County, Kentucky - John was living with wife, son and father
1880 Hopkins County, Kentucky - John was living with wife and several children
1900 Stewart County, Tennessee - John was living with wife, 2 children and grandson
Any help with this family? I am recently starting research on this family so I do not have much on them.
