From the book Marriages & Deaths from Steuben County, New York, Newspapers, 1797-1838, edited by Y.E. Martin:

E.K. POTTER, ???

How does one did "suddenly" of rheumatism??? Hummmm...............   If any reader of this blog has any bit of information on "stray" Potters, I would be happy to publish it here for all to benefit from.
