James Potter (my ancestor) was guardian for Elizabeth, Seybert, and Sarah Odom.I know James was a lawyer;I don't know if his capacity as guardian was merely a legal relationship or if he had any role in their upbringing.
Any information on the relationship between the Potters and the Odoms would be appreciated.
