I need a Potter born about 1778 (10 years either way), who was born in New York, with wife born in Massachusetts, and lived in Onondaga County circa 1808.

This describes the father of Joseph H. Potter, who joined the U.S. Army in 1828, served in Indian Territory, and homesteaded in Arkansas.

Joseph H Potter's children were:
Thomas Jefferson Potter
William George Potter
Francis F. Potter (possible)
Gustavus Potter (possible)

There was a Thomas Potter on the tax list in Pulaski County AR in 1838 and 1839 who may have been a relative. Maybe a brother?

Do any of these names ring a bell?

Thanks for any clues you can give.
