Need help in identifying this woman!
She's most likely a granddaughter of Thomas Potter (1793 Virginia -1871
Kansas) and Celia Jackson (1793 Kentucky -1861 Kansas
), possibly a
daughter of Moses or Tinsley Potter. The photo was taken by W. M.
Oaks, "photographer - artist," at Holton, Kansas
Although the photo is in the possession of descendants of Andrew J.
we don't think she's one of his daughters. For comparison, his
appears in other photos found on this page. Please e-mail me if
you have an idea who she is. firstname.lastname@example.org
||Andrew J. Potter and Sarah

between those two years, but probably closer to 1885. L-R of those
standing: Betty, Allen, Mattie, Oliver, and Lida (Mary Eliza(beth)).
||We THINK this is A.J. and Sarah and their family, taken from

the Jefferson Co. KY Will Book 4: at pages 86-87, the will of Moses
Potter, and at pages 320-321 the will of Jesse Potter. Moses names his
wife Frances and then all his children including sons Jesse and Thomas.
Jesse gave a land warrant to his "neice Nancy Potter in Buchanan
County, MO." Thus the two wills together prove the Thomas Potter in
Buchanan Co. (who has a daughter Nancy living with him) is the son of
Moses and Frances Potter of Jefferson Co. KY.
