    • A Martha Duley wrote a letter in 1901 to inform a relative of his ancestry. It may be found in the Corydon, Harrison Co., IN library. In one part of the letter she writes: "I will now tell you what I know of your great grandmothers family. Her mothers maiden name was Mary Rice. She was borned in Tennessee her father was well off and owned a lot of slaves. She first married a Mr. Whitaker? ?they had six children, three boys and three girls there names was John & Joseph & Rice & Rhoda and Nancy and Elizabeth. =She went from Tennessee to Kentucky = and there married Job Poteet. As I sed before, he was a frenchman there were five children born to them, 3 girls, 2 boys - there names were Alford and James and Polly and Elzina and Rebecca that was your grandmother name = Elzina died young and James got killed by a wagon upsetting on him when he was a boy"
