Joel Potter married to Mary Crowell

We come from the line of Joel Potter and Mary Crowell's daughter Rachel Potter m. Benjamin McAfee. 1764 .  I was aware that the Potters passed away when Rachel was only about 8 yrs old.  She was then raised by sister Phila Crowell Potter and husband Nathaniel Martin.  Interested to know more of parents cause of death, Rachel's  siblings and where they went after parent's death and any other info you might have.  I saw info in 1780 where Joel was protesting to Isaac Martin and Samuel Meeker for confiscated lands.  Did Joel join the loyalists? Wondered about this and couldn't find full record.  Our info goes from Rachel and Benjamin forward but nothing about them before marriage or their parents.  Thanks for any help, Mary McAfee

Joel Potter (15 Dec 1740 - 29 Jul 1782) and Mary Crowell (07 Apr 1742 - 23 Mar 1782) seem to be a hard lineage to trace! What I have uncovered is they had three sons, Ephraim (25 Jan 1766 - 13 Oct 1843), Ezariah (1768 - 1822) and Samuel (1771 - 1822) as well as two daughters, Phila Crowell (29 Apr 1763 - 08 Jul 1833) and Rachel (29 Nov 1772 - 21 Feb 1858).
 
Joel's parents are Amos Potter (10 Aug 1725 - 13 Feb 1768) and Mary Meeker (21 Oct 1728 - 04 Feb 1790) while Mary Meeker's parents are John Meeker (1702 - 1731) and Joanna Ogden (02 Jun 1706 - 22 Apr 1761).
 
Amos Potter's parents were Daniel Potter (1692 - 17 Mar 1745) and Rachael Alden (1694 - 1727).
 
Daniel Potter's father was Samuel Potter (16 Sep 1669 - 02 May 1756) and mother unknown by myself.
 
Samuel Potter's father was also named Samuel Potter (07 Oct 1641 - 16 Nov 1696) and I believe his mother was Anna Russell (29 Jul 1650 - 09 May 1676).
 
Beyond this point I am uncertain...

That makes Joel's parents 15 and 12 when he's born.
