      "I found record of a probate with names of John's children listed. It gives an idea of who the female children were married to at the time of his death:
      Potts John, d. 1-18-1888 Fd: 2-1-1888. Ch: Abigail J. Craven, Ira Potts. Heirs: Owen S., John N. Potts, Ida M. Steele, Elizabeth B. Dye, Harriet D. Brink." From Sharon Corcoran's research
      Owen, John N. and Ida are grandchildren of John Potts, their father Alford having died during the Civil War.
