Photo taken Oct 20, 1995 by Nora Eden

The location is as follows: approx. 1 1/2 miles north of 248 and 39 junction on 39 to Hi-way 0 then to the end of it at bottom of hill (through the old town of Jenkins) then take road 2105 which will be going west to the second house which is about 1 mile (barn on one side of road and house on the other) turn in by the barn and through the gate and follow the fence down and the cemetery is on the left.

Betty (Potter) Eubanks said that there is a legend that I have of old man Jenkins -- The location for him isn't all there. He did come there at the mouth of Jenkins creek and flat creek which is at the east side of Jenkins. He moved west from there on account of floods and build a house near or a little southwest of what is now the Potter cemetery.
NOTE: The land where this cemetery is has been in the Eubanks Family for many generations. Nora Eden visited with the family in October 1997 and soon after returning home Mrs. Eubanks mailed an old transcription to Nora. Nora combined that transcription with photo evidence and as of May 2002.
