My great grandfather, William H. Potter, lists Birkenhead England as his birth place on his marriage certificate to Elizabeth "Lizzie" H. Walls. I have the names of nine children who were born of this marriage. All I know of William H. Potter is that he was born between 1865-1869??? in Birkenhead, England. It is said he stowed away, with a class mate, from Birkenhead, England. The story goes that he was attending the School for Boys in Birkenhead, England. His mother was a teacher and an opera singer. William and his class mate, jumped ship before port in Pennsylvania or Delaware (USA), and swam to shore. I'm guessing it was Delaware because on their marriage certificate it shows Lizzie is from Milford, DE. I know this is a long shot, but never hurts to ask if any of this sounds familiar or for any suggestions you might have on finding anything on him.
