JOHNSON and SCHAUFELBERGER GENEALOGY
[Note: Because there is a fair amount of confusion in this line, uncertainties are in grey]
WILLIAM POTTER 6
from "Genealogies of Connecticut Families from The New England Historical Genealogical Register" vol III Painter--Wyllys, selected and introduced by Gary Boyd Roberts, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1983, p 150-151. See Research Notes for transcription.
8 From document compiled by William Arthur Collins (descendant of Moses Robbins), sent via email on Mar. 7, 2000. His sources for information about the Potters are John William Taylor, Jr. Robins/Robbins Family Group Records, various Ancestral Files and email correspondence. Frances' birth date is based on her age of 26 according to the passenger records for the Abigail. There son, Joseph, was 4 months old at the time.
10 Surname of Mead and birth year were found at Finn - (Unknown), which also lists Hannah's father as John Mead, with no further information. This information is also found in GenForum Potter Discussion and transcribed in the Research Notes.

13 Alternatively, Hannah Hawes! http://www.my-ged.com/db/page/drowne/14258; both sources agree on the date of birth in Kent, England and on the date and location of death; this site provides the Spaldhurst birthplace
