      History is so important. This past week I learned Walter Potts Sr. lived with his grandparents Fountain and Patsy Oliphant. Fountain Oliphant is my great grandmother’s father (Amelia Oliphant). Charlie Spencer is Fountains brother. Walters mother (Mollie and Fountain and Patsy daughter) married William Potts. Three children were born to this union: Walter Sr., James and LuBerta. Yes, Walter Sr. Was a Buffalo Solider. I was told he was among the last living when he died at 106.
