    Per NEHGS:
    A. FS has an index record 1831 in Stirling Scotland for Catherine Connal to David PORTER.

    B. New York Wills and Abstract for Cambridge, Washington County has 1806 will of Ephraim Potter, wife Judith, sons David, William, Edmond, Abner,Nathaniel , dau. Rebecca, Martha McCumber, Sarah Austin, grandson John of Wm, John of Ab, John of Nate.

    C. This David Potter is a head of household in 1800 census, so too old to be b. 1794ish.

    Will do some more looking before bedtime.

    David Morrison Potter and Elizabeth Buchanan had a daughter in 1863, they named her Catharine Connal Potter.

    Catharine Connal Potter married Lucius W Hoyt in Elora, Wellington, Ontario, on 27 August 1889

    A1954.37 - Potter family records, 1822-1894.

    The Potter family records consist of corresondence received by John Potter and David M. Potter, born at Gallowflat Farm, Scotland who emigrated to Canada and settled in Elora, Ontario. David M. Potter was proprieter of the Elora Foundry with Mr. Mathieson in the mid 1880s and he took over as sole proprieter in 1859, acting as manager of the foundry in 1871. The Elora Foundry building was located on Allan Street and later used at Kiddie Kar Factory by Mundell and Co., subsequently gutted by fire. The Potter residence, located beside the foundry was gutted by fire in 1978. SERIES 1: Potter family correspondence, 1822-1864. - Item 1: Letter from _______ Potter of Gallowfleet, Perthshir
    Found on Wellington County Museum Archives, Collections Catalogue. Not sure if it is the same David M Potter or another.
    Scroll down to item 5 where it has David's mother dying in Scotland in 1835 and James emigrating. Could this be the same James Potter, who may be father of your David.

    _____ David Potter and Catherine MURDOCK.

    I've looked around to see if there is a Catherine Connel marriage to a Murdock, but haven't really had time since finding this one late last night.

    Q: Are we abandoning David and Catherine at the moment, and re-focusing on David, Jr. and Eliza?

    Please quit wasting your time on this family,,, I don't want them!!! We have proven they are not who I am looking for. I'll post again about the David I am looking for, when I a have a moment. I have all the information I need on them other than a marriage and parents. After their marriage I have them in all the censuses, all their children, deaths, etc. just need them prior to and including their marriage . Thank you!

    In answer to your question, yes, however...
    @ GrannyBarb..., does it say if this Catherine Murdock is from Quebec?

    Sorry, no. Just this identical transcription in two or three places on various NY genie websites.

    If it makes you feel any better, I've got some Potters from Rhode Island I can't pin down to any particular line. Lots of suspects eliminated, though. ;)

    it was from a story posted on a tree for another emigrant

    Emigrant Archibald Scott
    Posted 25 Oct 2013 by WCA888

    Archibald Scott qas born in 1798 in Ecclefechan, Dumfrieshire, Scotland. He married Jane Ballantyne and emigrated to Canada with his wife and then six children and settle in Scott's Corners in Beverly Twp in 1831. The original Scott homestead was owned first by George Weaver and then Samuel Congo before being purchased by Archibald on his arrival from Scotland.

    Mr. Scott was a member of the Associate Church in Galt which was later known as the United Presbyterian before becoming First United Church. Mr. Scott died in 1865 on October 4th and was buried in Strang's burying ground in what is now know as High Park. His remains were later moved to Mount View Cemetary. His wife died about 1849.

    When Archibald Scott's son John was married in 1856 to Mary Rutherford he moved to the East River Road south of Galt and left John on the old farm at Scott's Corners.

    The farm south of Galt was at one time part of the land owned by John Telfer. Its deed shows that in 1847 it was purchased by David Potter. In 1858 that part of the land west of the Great West Railway was bought by Archibald Scott. After his death that land was bought in 1870 by Mr. Archibald Scott's son-in-law Andrew Taylor. It has since remained in the hands of the Taylor family.
