The only difference in Otter and Old Otter is that they are on opposite sides of the road. The cemetery was getting too much water in it so they moved to the other side of the road. The roads are all named because of  911. The road to the cemetery is named Otter Creek. In Ponce de Leon go north on 81 right next to Vortex Springs is the Otter Creek Road on the right side of the road. It is north of highway 90.
