Potterfield Family-Miami County, Indiana

I am looking for any information on Jonathan Potterfield and his wife Rachel Lockwood Potterfield. They lived in Miami County, Indiana from 1850-until they died, Rachel I believe died in 1887, and Jonathan sometime after that. They had no children together. Jonathan had several children from a previous marraige to Sarah Sackman, she died in Preble County, Ohio in 1849. Rachel helped him raise those children and they took in 5 more through out the years. Two of the children were my great grandmother Ida Potterfiled, and her brother Thomas "Edward" Potterfield. It has been said that their parents were Albert and Maria Potterfiled. I am curious to know how it came about that they were raised by Jonathan and Rachel, and what relationship does Albert have to Jonathan. Any information would be wonderful.
