I have a Sarah Annie Mathews b Dublin c 1831. Sarah was the daughter of Henry Maxwell Mathews Esq., and Sarah Annie Mathews, of Moyally, Meath, Ireland. My Sarah married a John Potter in Dublin, 1851. John's father was a Clerk in Holy Orders. I believe that they may have emigrated to Victoria, Australia. Happy to make any connections. [contact link]

Johnathon B. Potter born in New York about 1823 married Ruth Ann Beals who was born in Pennsylvania about 1830. They live in Crawford County, Pennsylvania in 1850 as newly weds, without children. By 1860, still in Crawford County, they have 4 children: Charles, Barbara, Perry and Adeline. By 1870 they have moved to Keokuk, Lee County, Iowa. Johnathon is 45 and Ruth is 40. Charles has already left home by then.
By 1872 Barbara has met a young man, James Payton, and he has asked for her hand. They marry in January 1873 and make a life in Iowa where they raise 6 children.
In 1883 Perry marries into a the Crandall family in Ponca, Nebraska. They have 4 daughters but something goes terribly wrong and Perry moves back to Iowa alone in 1890. A short time later he joins the Army-maybe to mend a broken heart. Perry later moves to Moffat County, Colorado where he dies alone in his mountain cabin in 1932. He never married again.
In 1884 Adeline marries Fred Betz in Kansas. They have a son, Frederick, born in Kansas in 1903 and soon move to Colorado.
After all the kids leave home, I lost track of Ruth Ann and Johnathon. I do not know where they are buried. But, I honor my great great grandparents by remembering them to my children. I believe they are being honored each time I speak their names and tell of the struggles and joy in the lives they lived.
