Virginia: I'm not sure how to respond to your question. I can trace back to 1508 in Germany. More immediately, my father was Elmer Delbert Pottorff. His father was Benjamin Franklin Nicholson Pottorff, whose father was Jacob Bottorff (note the name change?), whose father was Johann Martinus (John Martin) Batdorf (another name change), etc. Too bad they couldn't stick with one name, all the name changing made research difficult.

I would welcome corresponding with you. I have a data base with over 5000 names in it. If I can be of service, please don't hesitate to let me know. Write me at my e-mail address as the forum is a little cumbersome to deal with.

Waiting to hear from you:
