Potters in St. Clair County, Illinois
St. Clair County, Illinois, is directly east from St.Louis, Missouri, and across the Mississippi River.
While browsing through the St. Clair County Genealogical Society Quarterly, I found these stray Potters.......... and some data are for neighboring counties:
Charity POTTER married Ninian E. CARR on 20 Jan 1846 in St. Clair Co.
James POTTER died on 19 Jan 1870, age 40, and is buried in the Richland Baptist Cemetery, Prairie DuLong, St. Clair County.
James POTTER, age 32, Peoria, had his eyes injured in a powder explosions on 14 Mar 1901 in St. Clair County.
Edwin Potter, age 25, married Velda JONES, age 19, on 21 Jul 1902 in the Marissa Methodist Episcopal Church
Robert POTTER married Orvilla Ann BAGLEY on 6 Sep 1849 in St. Clair County.
Matthew POTTER is listed in the "Patron Directory", Illustrated Historical Atlas of St. Clair County, Illinois, 1874..... Matthew Potter, age 29, farmer, settled in the county in 1838.
Hope this supplies new information to some one of you Potter researchers.
