Token of respect, dated July 24, 1821, given to student Miss Ann Potter in New York City by her teachers H. G. Ufford and L. Bixby. I believe these people were Ann Caroline Potter (1808-1882); Hezekiah Gold Ufford (1779-1863); and Lewis Bixby (1795-1866).
The token of respect came with a group of papers, including Family Record pages removed from a Bible, that pertain to the genealogy of several families:
As noted in the accompanying papers, Miss Ann Potter was Ann Caroline Potter, born in 1808 in New York City and future wife of New York City attorney Frederick Wait Burke, a native of Woodstock, Vermont. Ann died on August 23, 1882 at Brooklyn, New York; her death record indicates that her father was born in New Jersey and her mother on Long Island in New York. The Mary Potter living with the Burkes at the time of the 1850 and 1860s Censuses was presumably Ann's widowed mother.
H. G. Ufford was presumably Rev. Hezekiah Gold Ufford, born in 1779 and a graduate of Yale College. Below, his obituary in the Yale publication Obituary Record of Graduates of Yale College Deceased from July, 1859, to July, 1870, noting that he was born April 14, 1779 at Stratford, Connecticut, son of Samuel Ufford and Abigail (Gold) Ufford:
