He graduated at Jefferson College, Canonsburg, Pa., in 1859; studied divinity in the Western Theological Seminary, Alleghany, Pa.; was licensed by Alleghany City Presbytery; and, after supplying some churches for a time, he accepted a call to the Church of Plains, Pa., and was ordained and installed Sept. 8, 1863. Subsequently he was earnestly solicited, and, after prayerful consideration, consented to take charge of Fairmount Church, Pa., in connection with that of Plains, which relation existed till he died, June 10, 1866. Mr. Potter was a favorite pastor and an excellent preacher. His preaching was plain, pointed, and scriptural. He always carefully prepared his sermons. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1867, p. 191.
