The Sullivan County Genealogical Web Page is most grateful to Carol Brotzman for making possible the preservation of this history. Data for this composition was obtained mainly from Evelyn Potter Keeney’s genealogy compiled in 1996 [see picture at end of this history]. The story also includes added data from Dick Hunsinger, Lois Neuber and Carol Hoose Brotzman herself. Also, Ernest Hatton provided data regarding the Potter origins. His site can be found here:The Hatton-Exley-Potter Genealogy. Finally, we are thankful to Tara Drake for three photos shown below and for information on the Zacharias and Nolan families.

Carol would like to dedicate this composition to the original author of most of this work, Evelyn Virginia Potter Keeney, and her niece, Nicole Louise Repsher. Both are gone now but not forgotten.

Evelyn Potter Keeney recorded that there were five Potter brothers who came to this area from Huntington, England; however it was probably Huntington, PA. Lois Neuber reports that William Wilson, who went by "Wilson" during his life, was born possibly June 4, 1816 in Huntington Twp, in what is now Luzerne County, PA. Ernie Hatton thinks that this date is actually a baptismal date, and that he was born in 1814, but that is still uncertain. In any case, "Wilson" married Anna Catherine Hunsinger on 28 Oct 1838 in Cherry Twp, in what is now Sullivan County, PA.

There is considerable uncertainty about the early Potter history in Sullivan County. Part of this revolves around the decision by William Potter to use "Wilson" in his every day life and on many records, such as the census records, where that is how he is recorded. However, it is also the case that the Old German Church Records for the early Lutheran community refer to him as William Potter, so that is what we will use in this story. We are not even certain about which or how many of the "five brothers" actually arrived in Sullivan County. Ernest Hatton can prove the existence and origins of two of the original brothers, but we are not saying the legend is wrong. We just hope some day to prove the total ancestry. Evelyn’s specialty was bringing this gigantic family forward, not taking them backwards, so we will now concentrate on her area of expertise. The "Poitiers" website probably points to the ultimate ancestry of this Potter family, but no one has so far proven it **. I know both Nicole and Evelyn would have loved to surf the net and find their family had they only had the chance.

** Editor's Note: In August 2010, Thomas D. Bliss contributed this report, entitled Evelyn Keeney's William Wilson Potter. This summary argues that the two major Potter families in Sullivan County are not directly related and are actually separated by at least twenty years in the timing of their appearance in the area. Ernie Hatton makes the critical points that (1) these Potters may have been related earlier in New Jersey or New England, although (2) such ideas are really completely speculative until a DNA test is conducted on a male descendant of the William Wilson Potter line. Such a result was not yet available at the time of the Bliss report.

      1.  William "Wilson"1 Potter was born June 04, 1816, as mentioend above, and died July 28, 1894 in Sugar Run, Pa.  He married Anna Catherine Hunsinger October 28, 1838, daughter of John Hunsinger and Elizabeth Ruppert, in Cherry Township, PA..  She was born February 14, 1814 in Sugar Loaf Twp, Luzerne, County, PA. and died March 18, 1892.  They are buried in the Colley Cemetery, Colley, PA

 

Wilson erected a sawmill in Colley in 1864 and lumbered in that area. He purchased a farm on Oak Hill, Wilmot Twp., Bradford Co., Pa.. The 1850 Census for Colley lists him as a yeoman. The 1830 Census lists him in Lycoming Co., Cherry Twp., now Sullivan County. The family moved from Cherry Twp. to Colley in 1849.

 

 

The Sullivan Review

Wilson W. Potter of Colley Township, died July 28, aged 78 years.  He was born in Columbia County and removed to Sullivan County while a young man.  He leaves two sons and two daughters to mourn his loss.

 

The Sullivan Review

March 31, 1892

Anna, wife of Wilson Potter, died at Sugar Run, Bradford County, March 18. She was born February 14, 1814, in Sugar Loaf Township, Luzerne County, Pa., and moved with her parents to Sullivan County when it was but very little settled.

She was married to Wilson Potter July 24, 1838, and resided in Sullivan county until 1870 when they moved to Missouri, in 1876 they removed to Sullivan county for a few years, they then moved to Sugar Run.

She was the mother of ten children, of which but four survived her.

The funeral took place March 22 at the Evangelical church at Colley Rev. G.H. Miller officiating. She leaves an aged companion traveling on the shady side of three score years and ten

 

The following is Dick Hunsingers review of the Potter origination.  http://awt.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=hunsi3&id=I03239

 

 William's grandfather was Joseph Wanton Potter **, born Nov. 25, 1760 in Narragansett, Wakefield, R.I. and died Aug. 01, 1840 in Huntington, Luzerne Co., PA.. He married Diadoma Brookins (spelling may have been Brookings) in 1780 in Vermont. She was born 1765 in Poultney, Vermont, and died 1838 in Huntington, Luzerne Co., Pa.. They are buried in the Potter-Emory Cemetery, Luzerne Co., Pa.. Joseph & Diadoma had at least 14 children; Submit (1781), Elsie (about 1782), Lucy 1782), Alden (1784), Joseph (1787), William (1789), Mary "Polly' (1791), Brookins (1793), Henry (1795), Experience (1798), Alming (1802), Hannah (1806), Daniel (1809) and Joseph born unknown) The child William, was born May 10, 1789 in Huntington Twp., Luzerne Co., PA, and died April 7, 1847. He married Rachel Wilson, date unknown. She was born about April 27, 1786 and died May 14, 1852. Both are buried at Fairview Cemetery (Bahr Hill) in Dushore, Sullivan County, PA. William and Rachel are the parents of William Wilson Potter. Much of the Potter information published here was received from Ernest Hatton.

** In March 2006, we received the following message from June Hartzell:

This source has Joseph Wanton Potter as father to Elsie. This is incorrect; she married my great grandfather. Elsie and Joseph Wanton were brother and sister. I have researched the Rhode Island Potters down to Joseph and Elsie Potter. Elsey married Thomas Baker; her name is "Elsey" on her tombstone. I have her line back into Rhode Island, Elsie is my third great grandmother. I have a not to good picture of her and husband Thomas Baker. Their daughter Elizabeth married Jacob Harrington. The source referenced on your page has the Rhode Island Potters mixed up with the New Haven Potters. It references Ancient Familes of New Haven, but I own this set of books and they support my comments.

Here is the actual ancestral lineage:

1. George Potter 1548-1645 m Martha, possible father of Nathaniel; was in Rhode Island in 1639

Her niece, Mary Hazzard, married John Robinson, and therefore Martha and her niece Mary are also second cousins.

Note: Icabod III's son John married Hannah Potter; she may have been a New Haven Potter, William Potter of New Haven was hung for bestality and I guess people don't want that in their genealogy. One girl blames it on old age but at his trial he said he started at age 11. I connect to both families of Potters. Hope this sets it straight

Deed recorded 1842 (Deed Book A: 26) records the purchase of 12 acres of land from Joseph Potter in Cherry Township, Lycoming County. Joseph Potter, his wife Abigail of Towanda Twp., Bradford Co., Penna. and Brookins Potter, his wife Sally of Huntington, Luzerne County. Witness was William Colley Esquire, Justice of the Peace. Stating that Joseph and William were of the same place. This shows the relationship of the Potters of Sullivan, Luzerne, Lycoming and Columbia Counties. Note: William and Elizabeth moved to Missouri for five years and then returned to Colley. Elizabeth Hunsinger was living with William and Catharine age 75.(Not proven, but Marcy Pitkin of Florida claims that William Wilson Potter was a grandfather to her mother. William was a stepbrother of William Colley (for whom Colley Township is named.) It is stated that Thomas Freeman Batcheler 1756-1787 of Philadelphia married Sarah Parsons born 1756 died unknown. They had two children Ann 1777-1874 and Joseph 1781-1834, after Thomas died Sarah married Jonathan Colley. Joseph Batcheler married Mary " Polly" Potter 1784-1848 and lived in Huntington, Twp., Luzerne Co. (Jonathan was then Joseph's stepfather.)

 

Listed as William W. Patter in the index of the 1850 census of Colley Twp., Sullivan Co., Pa. Listed with him is his wife Anna and children; William W. b., about1838, Daniel L., b.about 1840, Jeremiah, b. about 1843, General W., b. about1845, Mary C. b., abt, 1847 and here is the connection once again to the Brookins family--Diadoma b. about 1849. Some of these children are listed; others are not in the later census. There is no mention of Diadoma in later census or family records. (Diadoma is the spelling used by whoever recorded the family)

Listed in the 1860 census of (Cully) Colley Twp., Sullivan Co., Pa. with wife and seven children.

This Potter family is not the same family as that of Isaac Potter, father of Sarah Ellen Potter, married to William Osmer.

      5.  Winfield (William) Scott2 Potter (William Wilson1) was born October 1844 in Cherry Township, Sullivan County, PA The Hunsinger book has 1844, and died 1916 in Colley Township, Sullivan County, PA.  He married Annie Elizabeth Reeser 1874, daughter of Reverend Reeser and Sarah Martin.  She was born January 23, 1850 in Maryland, (May 1855 by census), and died January 13, 1938 in Peckville, Pennsylvania. The family is buried in Colley Cemetery, Colley, PA

 

This family is not without discrepancies in data. The Hunsinger Genealogy refers to him as Winfield Potter, being born in 1844.  Evelyn Potter Keeney states his name is William Scott Potter being born 1855. The 1844 date matches census and headstones. Both state he died 1916 and is buried in the Colley Cemetery.

 

Regarding the census records, this family can be found in the following places:

Listed in 1880 census of Cherry Twp., Sullivan Co., Pa. with wife and children.

Listed in 1900 census of Lopez, Colley Twp., Sullivan Co., Pa. with wife 3 children and the married daughter, Vesta Custer who is widowed. Vesta’s daughter Frances Custer was living with them too.

Annie’s birthdate would be in question in regards to the 1900 census but her own celebrations, which were recorded in the newspapers numerous times, provide the date I use as well as the date Evelyn Potter Keeney used.

 

The Sullivan Review

The Sullivan Review

August 16, 1916

In Memory of My Husband Winfield Potter Died July 27

 

Although three score and ten years of life, yet the span of life seemed short. As a citizen and father, he was an example worthy of patronage. Truthful and honest in his dealings with his fellowmen, often losing financially so as not to distress those who were under obligations to him. His life was one of purity and temperance, avoiding popularity.

In order to be convenient to the doctors, we closed our home two years ago and were at Old Forge and Peckville. After remaining there about seven weeks, we decided to come to Hollenback, thinking the country air might be a benefit. Although he has been ailing for three years and unable to work, he has been patient through all.

Six children were born to us. Four who are living were here to care for their father. We also have sixteen grandchildren of whom he was very fond, but having a favorite in every family, Kenneth of Peckville, Carl of Old Forge, Lenora of Jennings Md and baby Dorothy of Hollenback. There is also a baby Winfield of Old Forge.

Four of his granddaughters, Frances Custer, Marjorie Dikeman of Peckville, Grace Potter of Old Forge and Hazel Potter of Hollenback carried their grandfather’s flowers at his funeral.

His influence over his children commanded obedience, true manhood and womanhood.

Death has visited our home three times, baby Edna at Colley, our oldest son Linta at Lopez aged 18 years, and now a husband and father. The empty crib, the vacant chair, the sadness and loneliness remind us that it is death.

The last words are stamped on our minds. My husband said, “Take my hand and keep hold of it.” As I held his cold hand the thought came to me, is this the Valley of Death through which all must pass to reach the great beyond? If we only understand, some day, some time, we will understand. God will take care of us through every day and o’er all the way.

The Sullivan Review

January 19, 1938

 

Mrs. Annie Reeser Potter, daughter of the late Rev. William and Sarah Martin Reeser, pioneer residents of Sullivan County, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. T.G. Dikeman, at Peckville, Pa. Thursday morning January 13th, 1938

Mrs. Potter was born January 23, 1850, and was a woman of sterling character and indomitable courage, ever active in any welfare work, which would benefit church or community.

While a resident of Peckville, she attended the Baptist church. She was active in the W.C.T. U. a member of the Ladies Aid Society of the Stewart Methodist church of Old Forge and a charter member of Colley Grange.

During her lifetime occurred many major conflicts and tragedies; the Civil War, Spanish American War, the assassinations of Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley. While she and her brother, the late Hon. M.W. Reeser, lived with the family in Harford county, Maryland, they as children were greatly impressed by the screams of the slaves as they were punished, also by the sounds of the heavy artillery while the Civil War was in progress.

In 1874 she was married to Winfield Scott Potter and the union was blessed with the following children: Linta and Edna, who died at an early age; Vesta of Peckville, with whom she lived; Milton of Williamsport; the late Ellery E. of Hollenback and Burton of Old Forge. Also twenty grandchildren and fifteen great grandchildren, who are richer because of her life, who lived her life according to God’s Word.

A season of prayer was held in Peckville followed by services in the Evangelical church at Colley on Saturday, at 2:30 p.m., conducted by the Rev. Whitney, pastor of the Baptist church of Peckville. By request of the deceased, a mixed quartette from Peckville, sang, “God Will Take Care of You,” and “Good Night and Good Morning.”

The Colley Grange were in charge of the service at the grave.

The pallbearers were grandsons, Harold Potter, Ernest Dikeman, Miles Potter, Carl Potter, Burton Potter and Kenneth Dikeman. Flower bearers were members of the W.C.T. U. at the home in Peckville and at Colley. Granddaughters bore the floral tributes.

The funeral was largely attended by relatives, neighbors and friends

 

Annie (Reeser) Potter wrote as follows in 1929:

 

The Sullivan Review

August 28, 1929

 

The following preamble is the introduction to an extended
History of the Reeser Ancestors:

John and Madeline (Betts) Reeser
found at Faces and Families of Old Sullivan County, Group Six.

 

The Reeser reunion has been held annually for several years at Picture Rocks, Pa. Mr. and Mrs. John Reeser, came from Berks county to Cherry township, Lycoming county, now Sullivan county, in 1821, locating on the Loyalsock creek at Ellis, later known as the Seaman place. He erected the first grist mill in the county, later he located on the farm known as the Wentzel place where he erected the second grist mill, about one half mile from Dushore.

Many people came to Cherry Township when it was a wilderness. The first road built in Cherry township was the Susquehanna and Tioga Turnpike from Berwick by the way of Long Pond to the Loyalsock. Later it was extended to the Haverly settlement at Overton, from thence it went over the Huckleberry Mountain to Greenwood and Monroeton. Andrew Shiner took the contract of building the road. The contract price was $1150 per mile with extra pay for bridges. Half of his pay was to be in land at $2 per acre. The subcontractors took jobs on the road at $8.00 per mile and were to take half their pay in land at $4.00 per acre. By this means many of the early settlers secured their land.

Mr. and Mrs. Reeser were parents of eleven children, who were: Daniel, who married Catherine Litzelswope; William, who married Sarah Martin, and after her death he married Mrs. Melvina Taylor; Charles, who married Sarah Hicks; Jeremiah, who married Caroline Hicks, a sister of Sarah's; Amos who married Rebecca Dieffenbach; John Jr., who married Elizabeth Rupp, and after her death, Mrs. Rowe; Benjamin, who died in infancy; Reuben, who married Martha Black; Adam, who married Mary Siets and after her death he was again married; Elizabeth, who married Joseph Huffmaster, who was killed in the battle of Chancellorsville, she then married Elias Smith and later Barney Kast; Susan, who married Valentine Morter, after his death, Richard Douglas, who was a Civil War Veteran.

William and Adam Reeser entered the ministry of the Evangelical church. Amos conducted a hotel at the Ellis stand and later at Dushore. Reuben, while hunting with Mr. Wilcox, discovered the first coal at Bernice. The other brothers were tillers of the soil, making comfortable homes for their families. John Reeser, Sr. died Dec. 9, 1860 at the age of 70 years. His wife died Jan. 8, 1869, aged 75 years.

These parents and their children have passed to the Great Beyond, but their deeds live on. Many incidents of parents and grandparents are still in our memory. I heard my father, William Reeser, relate an incident, which occurred at the table when they were boys at home. Their mother was serving soup when one of the boys said it was too thick, another said it was too thin, another it was too salty, and another that it had too much pepper. Their mother would not tolerate faultfinding or disobedience. She got the hickory stick and gave them dessert, saying as she applied it, "I will give you thick and thin and salt and pepper." They were careful after that not to find fault.

I remember when we lived in Cherry Township, when I was quite young; I went with my sister Loretta to my grandparent's home. I disobeyed my mother by asking Grandmother for a piece, while my sister was in the garden getting vegetables for grandmother. She gave me a piece of bread with a generous spread of butter and maple sugar. I did not find fault for it was delicious.

From the Streby History of Cherry Township:

Mrs. Freeman Fairchild was the first person baptized in the township, the ceremony being performed in 1821 by Elder Solomon Dimmock of the Baptist faith. She united with the church at Huntingdon. Rev. Dimmock, who was from Huntingdon, held services in the house of Ezra Payne once a month; afterward the services were held at Roswell Phelps’ and Freeman Fairchild’s. In November 1828, Freeman Fairchild and Mrs. Brookins Potter were baptized and, some time later, Roswell Phelps and wife, Miss Salome Tompkins, and Mrs. Alden Potter. Previous to these, there were only two Baptists in the settlement, Brookins Potter and Mrs. Nicholas Potter from Huntingdon. Visits were made to the settlement by Elders Joel Rogers, Elias Dodson and Griffith Lewis. After Elders Rogers, Dodson and Samuel Chapin preached here alternately every four weeks. When the Cherry church was started, only two members of the Huntingdon church remained, Hannah Fairchild and Rachael Rogers, all the others having died or moved away. On examination of the records kept by D.H. Goodwin, recording secretary of the school committee for Cherry Hill and vicinity, it is found that on Thursday evening, January 12, 1832, a meeting of the citizens was called at the house of Freeman Fairchild to discuss the building of a schoolhouse. Jacob Dieffenbach was elected president and Roswell Phelps, clerk. It was voted that a schoolhouse be built upon the land donated by Roswell Phelps for that purpose. It comprised 16 square rods of land and laid between the present site of Bahr’s cemetery and the Turnpike. Freeman Fairchild, John G. Bartch and William Colley were appointed a committee to build the schoolhouse, which was to be of plank, one story high, 26x22 feet with a chimney and fireplace in one end. It was also voted that the schoolhouse should be considered free to all denominations that wished to hold religious services there. Thirty-nine of the pioneers subscribed toward building this schoolhouse, some in money, some by work and some with material. At a meeting held in August 1832, Rosewell Phelps was elected chairman, David H. Goodwin, secretary and Roswell Phelps, David H. Goodwin and Henry W. Cooper, the school committee for the ensuing year. At a meeting held April 3, 1841, it was "Resolved, that the right of pre-eminence to occupy the house shall stand as follows: 1st, the common day school; 2nd, preaching and prayer meeting; 3rd, Sunday school; 4th, singing school; 5th, debating school." The first school in the settlement was taught by Salome Tompkins for $1 per week and board, the second by Roswell Phelps of Symsbury, Connecticut, and the third by Alma Potter of Huntingdon, PA.

 

Ernie Hatton records the following data regarding the disputed birth date of Brookins Potter:

He was born June 5, 1858 according to the census of 1860 and is listed as Burkens Potter. I do have a date of June 18th.also, which is probably a baptismal date. They used to try to baptize the children pretty quickly back then, especially in good weather.

Brookins was the correct surname at the time of the union between the Potter and Brookins family. The name may have been Brookings at some time, sounds reasonable, but there is no trace to the name change. See my records.

This was a very hard family to trace and until I did it there was no record leading to the present family any further back then Huntington Twp., PA.

 The only record of the marriage had to come from me because there is no other record that I know of...I had someone research it for me in Vermont and there is only a slight mention of the marriage there.

It isn't that uncommon for a family to get the wrong date, especially if they only give a year. I bet someone entered the dates I have as 1858 and family tree put 1858/59?

Anyway, my source is the census of 1860.

There were other Brookins Potters as well, not just this one.

Wyalusing Man Pleads

To Shooting

Bald Eagle

Two years after a young bald eagle was shot down within the confines of Wyalusing Borough, a Wyalusing resident has pleaded in federal district court in Scranton.

Terry Keeney entered his plea of guilty Wednesday afternoon, according to a Pennsylvania Game Commission official who was at the proceedings and initiated the investigation into the shooting. Basically Keeney was sentenced to pay a $2,500 fine in accordance with a plea agreement. It was also noted that this would not go on his record as a felony.

The immature bald eagle was shot and wounded within the borough limits of Wyalusing in October of 2001. The endangered and federally protected bird has since been nursed back to health and released by Perry back into the wild. Two firearms, both shotguns, were also ordered forfeited.

Since that day the downed eagle was found by Wyalusing resident Mike Kilmer on his property, Perry estimates that “hundreds of man hours have been put into this.”

The game commission will be issuing a news release on the case, which will be reported as it develops on our web page at www.rocket-courier.com.

Good Samaritan Recovering

A Terry Township resident and local businessman was reported recovering from head and facial injuries at the Scranton Community Medical Center (CMC) over the weekend. David Keeney stopped to assist the occupant of an overturned vehicle at an accident scene along Route 187 near the Rainbow Bridge late Friday evening, April 20, when another vehicle came along and plowed into the vehicle and Keeney. Keeney’s most serious injuries were reported to be a fractured skull and broken facial bones that will likely require reconstructive surgery. A family spokesperson stated Sunday that concerns about brain injury have apparently been alleviated and that Keeney has been able to speak and respond. Also injured and airlifted to CMC was the driver Keeney attempted to assist, Kevin Morris, of Towanda. State police report that shortly after 10 p.m., Morris was driving south on Route 187 toward the Route 2010 intersection when his 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee struck a tree and rolled onto its roof. Keeney came upon the accident shortly thereafter and got out of his vehicle, approached Morris’s vehicle and was apparently attempting to render aid when a southbound pickup truck slammed into the overturned Jeep and Keeney. The driver of the pickup, a 1992 Dodge Ram, was Julian Johnson, of Wyalusing, and there was a juvenile passenger. Johnson and his passenger both reportedly sustained minor injuries, with Johnson treated for his at Memorial Hospital in Towanda. The accident scene was about two-tenths of a mile north of Route 2010 and the river bridge and occurred at 10:15 p.m. and is still under investigation.
It was reported that Morris was not wearing a seat belt and that the Grand Cherokee was totaled and the pickup truck sustained disabling damage.
Keeney is the owner of Epler Tire in New Albany.
