Say Hello to Joyce
Street Scene early 1900s Potterville General Store 1999 - Same building as in right foreground of companion postcard
Church at Potterville from Old Postcard. They were real proud of that state of the art telephone pole and labeled it. Same church photographed by Joyce in 1999
Potterville from the hill - young boy in foreground is Tyler Cook
Mill at Potterville - This photo taken circa 1907 is of the flour, feed and grist mill owned by Eastburn W. and Charles W. Werkheiser.  Cook's pond to the north provided the water power for its operation.  The man in the buggy is my great grandfather, Avery C. Cook.  The horse is named Tip.  Potterville School Bus - Early school transportation was provided by Hattie Cook VanWinkle and her faithful horse Harry.  The children in the photo are (l to r) Cecil Van Winkle Caroline Sibley, Howard LeTourneau and Harvey LeTourneau.  The building on the right of the photo is the Potterville Creamery Company, which later became the West Auburn Creamery Company.  The building was destroyed by fire.
Tater Hill School - located north of Potterville.  This was the only school my grandmother, Flo Ella Cook, ever attended.  She was born in 1878.  According to my father, Emmett Manchester (born 1905), the building was torn down by his uncle Edwin Manchester and the lumber used to build a chicken coop. 
A note about the Tater Hill School photo I sent.  Last week while going through some of Grandma's papers, I found the Tater Hill School on a postcard.  She had written on it saying the school was called the North Woods School but everyone referred to it as Tater Hill.
Dennison Potter  - Jerusha ?? Family - Grandchildren of Jason Potter, the man for whom Potterville was named.  In 1860, Dennison, his wife Jerusha, and two young children were living in Orwell Township with his parents, Jason and Clarissa Potter.  In 1880, Dennison and Jerusha were living in Egg Harbor Township, Atlantic County, New Jersey with six of their children.  Clara, the youngest, was four years old. Pictured in the photo:  Seated l to r  - Flora, Laura, Almon.  Standing l to r - Clara, Hattie, Mabel, Ella.  All were born in Pennsylvania.
