Re: Zephaniah Wade married Verlinda Pottenger
I, too, am descended from Zephaniah WADE(b. 1700 in Maryland, d. 1746 in Virginia) and Verlinda POTTENGER (b. October 19, 1706 in Prince Georges Co., Maryland), through their son, William and Mary SHEPARD.
I show Zephaniah's parents as Robert WADE (b. 1676 in Prince Georges Co., Maryland) and Elizabeth SPRIGG (b. 1679 in Prince Georges Co., Maryland).
I show Zephaniah and Verlinda's children as:
Robertb. abt 1731; Eleanorb. abt 1733; Zephaniahb. abt 1735, d. abt 1794; Williamb. 1737 in Maryland, d. abt 1743 in Adams Co., Ohio; Sarahb. abt 1741, John b. abt 1743.
