Potters In Southwestern Ohio

When I visited the Cincinnati Public Library last spring, one of the books I studied was History of Southwestern Ohio & The Miami Valley, Vol. 3, by William Smith, 1964. On page 372 was the biographical sketch of Myron T. Potter...... I've abstracted some notes from that lengthy sketch:

"Born at Fremont on 4 Jun 1903.... a son of Daniel Merritt POTTER and Ettie Otilla HUSS..... Daniel was born on 19 Apr 1860 and his mother on 24 July 1860... Daniel was a brick and tile maker in Greensprings, Ohio, and was the son of Henry J. POTTER, a Union soldier who died at the age of 27 as a prisoner of war in Andersonville Prison in Georgia.... Myron graduated from Fremont High School in 1920 and then Miami University at Oxford in 1925...... he was in the restaurant business all his life as well as in local public affairs.... he was a licensed pilot.... they were members of the Methodist Church..... Myron's wife was Florence Arabelle COE, daughter of Walter Randolph COE and Edith Elaine GOINS..... Walter came from Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, and was born on 27 Jun 1877.... Edith was born at Madison, Indiana, on 16 July 1881..... Myron and Edith were married at the Erlanger Baptist Church on 3 Aug 1932..... they had two children, Myron Timothy POTTER II, born 17 Apr 1935...who married Rene McCUNE..... and Geoffrey Coe POTTER, born 30 Apr 1940. 

Also in the Cincinnati Public Library, I looked at the sketch of the Isaac Washburn Family in the Historical Collections of Brown County Ohio, by Carl Thompson, 1969, and on page 896..........

Jane POTTER, of Brown County, married Nicholas WASHBURN; their children were: George W., b. 10 Jan 1830;  Nancy, b. 16 Apr 1833;  Rachel, b. 10 Mar 1836;  Jane (died infant);  Minerva, b. 12 May 1840;  Mary, b. 27 Mar 1842; John W. (died infant);  and D.M., b. 8 Aug 1850.
