Atwood Potter, Died 1881, Florida

On the Amelia Island Genealogical Society's website, Nassau County, Florida, is an obituary database. This particular one came from the Florida Mirror, dated 16 April 1881: Atwood Potter, home in Westerly, Long Island, night watchman in a hotel, the Larkin House, Putnam County, Florida, died by accidental gunshot.

This is an Atwood Potter in the Westerly, Rhode Island, census........not Westerly, Long Island. Think this is the same fellow?  Anybody looking to document his death would likely never have guessed to look in Florida!
