Potter Cemetery is located in the northeast quarter of Section 22 in Kelly Twp. The cemetery was deeded to Kelly Township in February 1873 but was used for burials before that time. It is situated on a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside with an adjacent creek in the northeast comer. The cemetery is approximately 100 ft. by 100 ft. in size and visible from the road. Although this cemetery is no longer in use, Kelly Township is responsible for its maintenance. The cemetery appeared completely overtaken by weeds and saplings; there was also a pile of tombstones in a corner and others were knocked down.
