POTTER Obit please, Onondaga County
Posted by: Christopher Brennan Date: January 24, 2001 at 17:35:27
  of 1914

My great grandmother, Mary Potter (March 14, 1839-December 9, 1922), at the time of her death had a brother, John Potter, who lived in Syracuse, Onondaga County. Another brother, Frank Potter, died the following year (1923) in Saxton, Pa. I think it likely that since John was 11 years older than Frank that John himself did not live much longer.

Would anyone be willing to look for an obituary for John Potter for me? If the Syracuse city directory is anything like its Rochester couterpart, it is possible that John Potter's date of death may be listed in the Syracuse city directory. With that information it may be possible to review the Syracuse 'papers for the obituary. With the hard and fast death date, I hope then to obtain his death certificate.

I appreciate whatever assistance you can provide.

Christopher Brennan
