Potter, George A., D.D.S., was born in Consecon, Ont., November 26, 1865. His paternal grandparents were citizens of the United States, removing to Canada some sixty years ago, where Dr. Potter's father, Dr. Hanley B. Potter, of Lafargeville, N. Y., was born also; therefore, Dr. Potter is to all intents and purposes an American, born in a foreign country, his father removing to the States when our subject was only two years of age. Dr. Potter's early education was received at Ives Seminary, Antwerp, and Cazenovia Seminary, Cazenovia. In 1890 he was graduated from the College of Dentistry, Baltimore, Md., and his first practice was on circuit work in Jefferson county, where he remained until 1892, when he removed to Cape Vincent. In this year he married Emma L., daughter of Dudley Mount, of Three Mile Bay. I)r. Potter is descended from some remarkable old English stock, tracing its genealogy back to the time of William the Conqueror. Among the strong men in medicine, law, and the church, we find such men as the late D. Hazzard Potter, an eminent surgeon of Geneva, N. Y., the Hon. Clarkson N. Potter, an able lawyer and statesman, and Bishop H. C. Potter of New York, and his brother, Rev. Dr. Potter, president of Union College, Schenectady.
