In your research of queries, don't forget to check out the queries that were posted during the previous months. Links to them are at the bottom of this query page. Queries start with May 1998.

Note: Query pages within the TNGenWeb project are for those researchers requesting or offering assistance in tracing their lineage. The TNGenWeb volunteers are dedicated to providing this FREE online Internet genealogical Web Site for the general public. It is NOT the policy of TNGenWeb to charge you.

It has come to our attention that some folks, when answering a query, have been asking to be paid for research. We do recognize that it would be fair to be asked to be reimbursed for postage and photocopy costs. However, charging research fees for information pertaining to the original query would be questionable at best.

Joseph POTTS, first husband of Nancy Agness CROCKETT, died in Williamson Co., in 1812 [Will bk 1, pg 277]. His son John Potts married Margaret Spence according to Crockett History by French and Armstrong. Does anyone have knowledge of this line and if he married a second time. It is possible that he is the same John Potts who was in Madison Co., AL in 1830 and Jackson Co., AL in 1840. His children appear to be those of Mourning POTTS listed in Madison Co., AL, in 1850.
