Virgil Lee Potts may have been Gracie Ellen father by Mary Rose Tracy. There is a post card supposedly from Virgil with two photographs: 1) a photo of a man and woman (20ish) with the caption "this is your dad and mom this one was in 1922". 2) a photo of a woman and a girl with the caption "Gracie Howard this is your tow (two) sisters".

This information was photocopied by Stella G. Walters (Howard) and sent with the note: "Mr Potts wrote to mom and sent these pictures. Would it be better if I took them to Daileys? (referring to the local photographer studio). Mom was borned when my grandmother was 15 years old."

The 1910 census of Fulton County, Arkansas lists a Gracie Potts (b 1906, Arkansas) living with Richard (b Dec 1851) and Tilda (b Feb 1852) Deshazo. Also listed was a daughter: Cora Alice Deshazo \ Potts \ Rhodes (b Mar 1885).

- (Cora) Alice Deshazo (19) married William Potts (28) April 10, 1904.
