Compiled by: Thomas Maxwell Potts

Published: 1907 in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. by the author. An unknown number of copies were printed, with at least one copy in the Pennsylvania Historical Society at Philadelphia.

In the preface of the printed volume entitled "Historical Collections Relating to the Potts Family in Great Britain and America, etc., 1901." it is stated that "It is the compiler's intention to deposit with the Pennsylvania Historical Society at Philadelphia, in addition to a copy of this work, a manuscript that will contain Indexes to Potts Wills and Deeds at different places, Lists of Marriages and Deaths, copies of papers and memoranda of greater of less value to the future historian of the family." This scheme is now matured in the following pages. The data is in measure more or less fragmentary and incomplete in many instances. This memoranda has not all been compared with the original copy and may in consequence contain errors, typographical and otherwise. It is hoped and believed that this data may in some way be helpful to those who may desire to pursue the subject of the family history further. /signed/ Thomas Maxwell Potts. Canonsburg, PA., 1907.
