Theresa was born in Bronx, New York. Her maternal immigrating ancestors were great grandparents John Canavan and wife Mary Howley from Ireland, and great grandfather John Griffith Bowden from England, who married Jane (Jennie) Connolly from Manhattan, New York; Jennie's parents, Theresa's great, great grandparents, were Patrick Connolly and Mary Kennedy, both born in Ireland.
Little is yet known about Canavan ancestors; history tells that the Canavan clan had a notable sept who were physicians; the name originated from counties Mayo and Galway.
Theresa's paternal immigrant ancestors were great grandfather Giulio Alfonso Ferracci from Salerno, and his wife Raffaelina Stabile from the same place, who probably arrived first in New York, traveling to Canada before spending time in Ohio and then settling in New York City; great great grandmother Jane Gibson of Tipperary, Ireland with husband Patrick Donahue from Ireland; great great grandfather John Francis Noonan from Dublin, with his wife Annie Keegan of Manhattan; Annie's parents, Theresa's 3rd-great grandparents, were Thomas and Brigit Keegan, from Ireland, counties unknown.
Family lore has it that Giulio's father, Theresa's great great grandfather Nicola Ferracci, was a trusted colleague of Garibaldi. Theresa has at the time of this profile creation, been unable to find record of his death, which by family history was in Ohio, United States.
Theresa trained as an architect and as a physician, and is a licensed physician in California. She also ran a small import clothing company for a number of years out of West Palm Beach Florida and San Francisco, California. She is lately very invested in learning about her own history as well as genealogy research in general. She is in the process of seeking dual Italian citizenship which comes to her through the line of descent from her great grandfather Giulio Ferracci. She is married and has one child who is a minor at the time of this profile creation.

I added the Potters to WikiTree as part of my goal of adding Warwickshire Cemeteries to WT (I'm the Warwickshire Team Leader as part of the England Project), so unfortunately I do not have any further sources for them aside from FindAGrave, though I'm happy to do some research into it later today.

There is a more complex discussion of categories https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Category_Tree_Level_1
If the person profile does not have a geographic location then there are categories for research such as Category:Ireland_Family_Brick_Walls

You commented on Hiram Colton Logan's profile in April regarding Find a Grave and Hiram's parentage. I just wanted to let you know that I've straightened things out on the WikiTree side of things using census data. Thanks, Rebecca McCall
