David Potts, a quaker, established this cemetery from a portion of his farm. He migrated here from Philadelphia Co. Pa. and in 1746 leased 866 acres of land from Catesby Cocke which he later purchased. He was born about the year 1700 and died 1768. No marked stone can be found to identify his grave but he and several generations of his family are buried here.
