The following information was contributed by

excerpt from Evelyn White's
"Polley Family Book"

In July, 1986, we had occasion to travel to the little town of Aitkin, Minnesota, to do research on the John C. Polley family.

(Text continues, and then:)

We than traveled to the Lakeview Cemetery, Aitkin. it is located about 5 miles east of Aitkin on Cemetery Road. Not knowing if the graves of the Polley family were located the this cemetery, we were were pleased to find two caretakers cutting the grass. They eagerly told us many stories about the early days of Aitkin. And we're equally excited when we did locate the grave of John C. Polley and his son, J. Charles Polley.

John writes: "A page nearby shows pictures of the John C. Polley marker, with his name on one side and J. Charles Polley on another side. The following notes are shown:"

Lakeview Cemetery, Cemetery Rd., Aitkin Minnesota. Owned and operated by the Aitkin Lee Post Aux. American Legion, Mr. Tibbets, Caretaker.

Polley grave is located about half way back of the cemetery, on the middle of the 3 roads. Stone is about five ft. tall. The caretaker thought that this cemetery was not here in 1886 and that the stone had probably been moved here from the earlier cemetery in the center of Aitkin. Stone is pink granite with a polished granite base.

John C. Polley Died Sept. 26, 1886 AE. 60 YRS, 7 MOS. and 10 DS

J. Charles Polley Died Sept 26, 1886 AE. 18 YRS, 6 MOS, and 20 DS

Although the stone does not show it, from her obituary, we know that the wife of John Cutter Polley, Amanda Korn Polley was buried in the plot after her death August 8, 1896.

Elsie Haselling is Secretary of Lakeview Cemetery Assoc.
