Re: Preston Pottorff*s ancestors/descendants

Hi Judy,

I descend from Preston Pottorff as well as John Bolwar. I also have Richard Albert Pottorff as the husband of Emma Louise Bolwar but I'm not quite sure who he is. The LDS site says he is the son of Preston and Louisa Pottorff. However the Ancestry.com site lists a Rienhard A. as a son of Preston but no Richard. Could these two be one and the same? Just a theory on my part. Richard Ellison Pottorff is the son of Silas Preston Pottorff which also makes him the grandson of Preston. As far as the parents of Emma Louise Bolwar goes, I have them as John Bolwar and his first wife, also Sarah(possibly Reed/Reid). Emma was born in 1850 but John didn't marry Sarah Aldridge until 1858. I was told that the two Sarahs were cousins but I haven't been able to locate Sarah Reed although there were numerous Reeds around then. I do have a little more on the Bolwars(Boulwares)but none of it is verified. Hope someone can sort all of this out. Good talking to everyone,

Terry
