Rowland E. Potter, born 1832, Maine

Some years ago I wrote a weekly genealogy newspaper column in our local newspaper, The Spokesman Review. Often readers would send me material, requests and queries. One such came from Robert Anderson of Kellogg, Idaho, in September 1991. He sent an envelope of material on a Potter family that he said was mine to use as I saw fit. The envelope got lost in the shuffle of time and now is found and I will share the material with you in the next several posts................  first is a poor copy of what looks to be a Bible page:
