"Stray" Potters in Washington State
Last weekend I attended the Washington State Genealogical Society conference, held this year in Ellensburg, Washington. This town was incorporated in 1883 which is a long time ago for Washington.
Ellensburg is home to the Central Washington Branch of the Washington State Archives. As such, the facility pictured above holds the government-created records for the several counties in the center of Washington.
After a lovely tour there, I did some looking and collecting of marriage records in those counties for stray Potters:
Afred H. Potter m. Elizabeth J. Bonnell on 20 Feb 1889 in Ellensburg; Isacc H. and Edith F. Bonnell were the witnesses.
Earl Potter, along with Lizzie Nesbitt, were the witnesses to the marriage of Pearl Potter to J.E. Ryan on 20 Mar 1889 at the residence of M.B. Potter.
John Potter married Frances D. West on 27 Oct 1892 in Goldendale; Nels and Addie Potter were witnesses.
M.E. Potter was a witness to the marriage of S.C. Eshleman to Emma Neimela on 25 Jun 1905 in Centerville.
Newton Potter married Susan A. (nee Fike? couldn't quite read) Rogers on 25 Apr 1915.
R.W. Potter married Matte (Mitchell) Lowe on 21 May 1918.
