I want to thank you for the suggestion of contacting the Oxford Town Historian. She was able to establish a connection between my great-great grandmother, Mary Potter, and her alleged father in oral lore, Benjamin Potter of Oxford, NY. Of course there are still some open questions, as it looks like Mary's mother may have died before 1849, as another wife is listed in the 1850+ US census and the 1855+ NY census.

While those mysteries may take time to clear up, at least I know I am on the right track. Thanks again for your help.

Chris Brennan
