Thank you very much... :)

: (snip)
: So anything you could tell

: Hi Barbara,

: I know zero about James POTTS - except what I have from census
: records. He was free colored - because slavery was phased out in
: PA in the late 1700's (gradual emancipation) very few slaves
: were left by the time this family of POTTs were born. Having
: only learned this surname recently, and pleased to find them in
: the 1850 census - I haven't been able to go any further yet. I
: only know both he and his wife were born in PA - where their
: parents were from I don't know - and haven't yet learned much
: about the white POTTs families in the area.

: Will let you know more as I look at other data,

: Denise
