Potter Cemetery, Warren County Illinois
Kelly Twp., Warren County, IL
off of Angling road up on a hill. Big cornfield below.... the drive is a
little rough not a road actually.
Potter Cemetery is located on top of hill north of Angling Road just before the intersection. I've been to this cemetery. It's not as easy to find as one might think if you don't know the area. The last was deeded to Kelly Township in February 1873 but was used for burials before that time. This cemetery is no longer in use and only gets mowed a few times a year. I walked the cemetery October 2003 with my cousins Mr. & Mrs Gene Brown.
In 1981 the Warren County Genealogical Society read the tombstones and I bought a copy of the listing from the Galesburg Library for 10 cents a copy. Here are their locations for the cemetery. Potter Cemetery is located a quarter mile to the east and a quarter mile south of rural reference numbers 1550E 2700N in the northeast quarter of section 22 in Kelly Township. the cemetery was deeded to Kelly Township in the 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 corner. The cemetery is approximately 100ft. by 100ft. 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.
