I am very interested in the genealogies of the Gerhardt brothers who settled in New Mexico. I am trying to locate relatives of my grandmother Isabell Potter Baker whose father was William Stockley Potter and whose mother was Alice Gerhardt .
I remember my grandmother saying that her mother died when she was quite young and she and her brothers and sisters were given out to various foster homes. She also spent time in a Catholic orphanage at one point. I remember she held her German grandfather in the highest regard saying that he was the most outstanding member of her family and a very kind man. I am thinking then that her grandfather was probably either John or Fredrick.Any information you have would be greatly appreciated as she died some years ago and no one else in the Colorado branch of her family has the information.
