1700's Potts Family Rutherford Co NC

I am seeking the parents of my ggg grandmother Elizabeth Potts. She was born abt 1770 and was married in 1788 Rutherford Co NC to Charles Taylor, son of Arthur Taylor, who was the son of old Robert Taylor and Susannah Anderson in Rutherford Co NC, so I assume she was living in this county. Possibly she had a brother George and a mother Mary (widow)as they were the only Potts in the area at this time. George was abt her age based on records/She died after 1840 in Buncombe/Henderson County NC. Possibly her father was John Potts who died in Buncombe or Rutherford, but I have found no estate record for John. Elizabeth and Charles migrated out of Rutherford in the 1790's to the land his father owned in Anson Co NC. They stayed there until the 1820's. The migrated back into Rutherford which at that time had become Buncombe. They lived in Buncombe until it became Henderson Co NC. They lived in the area of Mud Creek. They had the following confirmed children: Daniel, Joseph,Lucinda Taylor Treadway, Green Berry, Little Berry Grissom, Rachael, David. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
