"John G. Buchanan (1811-1891), a farmer and J.P. in Colchester Tp, wrote in his diary in the mid-1800s that he had traveled to Potleg, a nearby hamlet on the Potleg Road, just west of the Erie Road. This community no longer exists, but the old Potleg School that my father attended in 1916-1923, was in use until the 1950s."
