POTTS, James, 1811 & wife Rachel, Chester PA
The 1850 census for Chester shows the family of James and Rachel POTTS - I having a problem reading the fine print on the census record - but it looks like he was born Del. county PA 1811, and his wife Rachel born Chester county PA, abt 1809.
This is a new line for me - sorry I don't have much more than this.
Their children are:
Jane 8 (1841-1912)
Jese 7 (1843-)
Susan 6 (1844-)
Leticia 5 (1845-)
Mary 3 (1847-)
James 2 (1848-)
Amy 5 months (1850-)
Jane POTTS married Richard Williams:
Children: Thomas (1859-)
Mary Belle (1860-1927)
Follest G. (1869-)
James P. (1873-)
Susie R. (1877-)
Isaiah L. (1879-)
Louis Smith (1881-)
Am interested in any information about the POTTS families in Chester.
I notice that there is a slaveholding family in the 1790 register - POTTS, Thomas, Coventry who owned 6 slaves and wonder if there is a connection.
Would love to hear from other Chester county researchers.
