I am in search of more information about these ancestors. What we do know:
Both born about 1797-1799 (possibly in New Bedford, MA)
Married - 2 Jun 1821 Newport, Rhode Island (both residents of that city)
1840 and 1850 Census living in Newport with Sophia's mother, Mary Carr (born abt 1763)
Sophia died 19 Nov 1857 and Stephen died 6 Dec 1855
They had the following known children:
John Rescom Potter (1822-1892)
Mary Eliza Parker Potter (1826-1882)
Sophia Augusta Potter (1827-1907)
The DAR admission records indicate Sophia is the daughter of John and Mary Carr, and granddaughter of John and Mary Arnold Carr. However, we doubt this is accurate because the son of John and Mary Arnold Carr appears to have died at sea at a very young age.
If anyone has these people in their tree or has any leads, we would be most appreciative.
