Looking for information on Collins Pottorff; wife Mariah Adams d. 1859 and possibly a 2nd wife Nancy Adams. Children: Taylor Scott(my ggrandfather),John C.; William H.; Joseph Hamilton; Andrew Marion; Samuel Milton;andJames Madison. In 1860 they were in Brownstown Twp, Jackson Co. IN 1870 they were in Johnson Co., MO 1881 Taylor in Vigo Co., IN 1882 Taylor in Sangamon Co. IL
Any of these connections might give me a new place to search. Seems as tho my grandfather, Herbert Garland was an orphan at age 14 and raised by a family member.
