My mother, Mildred Hitchcock, along with William Potts, have the distinction of being the first couple to be married in an airplane flying over Youngstown, Ohio.  This would have been in approximately 1929.  I'm trying to find information about my mother, who died in 1960, or this person William Potts.  This information was given to me in the form of a letter written by Mary Kathryn Arner Young on July 16, 1961 which was a eulogy of my mother.  I believe this Mary Arner may have been a classmate of my mother - Boardman High School Class of 1926.  I'm looking for more information about any of this.  If you can help me please email me at
