The new Potter farm in Sargent, Missouri is shown in the following 1930 plat map section 16, listed by its previous owner J. Godfrey - 60 acres. At least, that property is consistent with the legal description from Gladys' sale of the property in 1952. By the time the Potters got there, Mr. Arch Brooks had ownership of the C.C. Riverie Estate, and was nearest-neighbor on all sides. This fits the 1940 Census records. The property is actually just within the borders of Burdine Township and is so treated in the census, but it is much closer to the small villiage of Sargent.
