From I-35 go West on Hwy 64 & 412 to the 4th mile section. Turn South at the Cemetery sign, 2 miles, turn West (right) about 1/2 mile. Cemetery is on the South side of the road.
The name is derived from the nickname of one of the first homesteaders, Andrew C. "Polo" Anderson. Polo Cemetery was established in 1894 on the claim of Ezra J. Lee. The 1900 census indicated he was born in Canada in 1836 and he had been married to his Irish wife for 36 years. In 1973, it was the last reminder of the community to be razed. Today only the cemetery & surrounding oilfield continue the name of Polo.
I walked the cemetery on Oct. 21, 2001 and recorded the information in a note book. I found approximately 291 graves, not all with markers.
Additional information was furnished by Richard Noel Allen, Springdale Farm, Oakdale Township.
It is a well kept cemetery with a fence and a gate. It is still open for burials.
