Researching the children of all Providence Potters from 1770-1800. I am particularly interested in the families of Reuben Potter, the widows Mary Potter and Sarah Potter, and George Potter, from some or all of the censuses of 1777, 1782, 1790 and 1800. There are at least two different Reuben Potter Jrs., of unknown parentage. A Reuben Potter married Mary Kelton, and it is not known who his parentage is, nor is there info on children.

One Reuben Potter is a son of Job Potter, and married Elizabeth Waterman.

A third Reuben Potter married Sally Fowler, again with no info on children or parentage.

The goal of this research is to identify the parentage of Sarah/Sally Potter, born in Providence, Providence, RI in 1783, who married George Field in Providence, Providence, RI, in 1792, and died in Providence, Providence, RI in 1827.

I have put related info on various Potters in Providence, of a highly variable quality, from 1777, 178, 1790, 1800, censuses, directories, old property maps, deeds, probate, IGI, Ancestral File, vital records, RI cemetary database, and other sources, on line at:
