My grandmother, Sarah Helen Balthrop Potter, the only child of James Morgan Balthrop and Annie Roberson Balthrop, still lives on Balthrop Branch Road in Dickson Co. Tenn. Her grandfather was John Lee Balthrop, youngest son of Wiley "Willie" Balthrop and Polly Dodson. There are a lot of Dodson's in the Dickson area as well. Would love more info on the Balthrop family. Many of the Balthrops are buried on the family land. One cemetary is on land now owned by Ott Smith. Another cemetary is on land owned by Hart Balthrop, one of John Lee's great grandchildren.
