Cemetery notes and/or description:
The " Berks County Cemetery" also known at "Potter Field" is located on Hilltop road across from a big development. There are no marked graves at this time. The cemetery was named Berks County Cemetery in about 1935 however we believe burials were already there from the Almhouse when it was renamed. All the records have been lost except a crude plot plan of the burials from 1961 to the last known burial in 1990. It is owned by the County of Berks. This is situated nearby the Almshouse cemetery which has been pretty much been built over. The ground was once Almshouse property. There were also two other cemeteries on the Almshouse property which I have not found dates for as far as when they started and stopped burying in each one. An article in the Reading Eagle dated March 29 1896 describes THREE cemeteries on the Almshouse property and an article in 1935 describes the "new" cemetery on the same property.
