Scotch-Irish Potter Settlers in Virginia

From the Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlers in Virginia, Extracted from original court records of Augusta County, 1745-1800, by Lyman Chalkley, Vol. 3:

Page 142:  John Potter's appraisement by John Kirk, Alexander Kirk, John Beard, on 22 Nov 1775 for  sogering money (soldiering money?) under Capt. Moffet......"

Page 465:  Gordon Potter was testator on 10 Nov 1767 along with Thomas McIlhany to James Stewart.

Page 562:  James Potter and John Wright and Robert McKittrick were testators to a deed ca. 1780.

'Twas not much but these bits might help some Potter family researcher.
