People of the Cemetery

The interactive feature below shows an abbreviated version of the Polk, Alexander and McCleary family trees. Out of the 101 burials in the Polk cemetery only eight of those have identifiable names on their grave markers, which informs the graphic below. In actuality, these families were much larger than shown in this illustration. There are many unidentified souls interred in the Polk Cemetery, including the burials of African American slaves, owned by these families.
