Note: by Bob Johnson
Thomas Polk died near Polk Mountain,
Union County, NC. He apparently is
not a Revolutionary War Soldier as
there are no records of his service.
The memorial marker has this
Col Thomas Polk confused with his
Uncle Col/Gen Thomas Polk of Mecklenburg
County, NC. who is buried in the
Old Settler's Cemetery near the square
in Charlotte, NC. This Thomas Polk was
not an officer in the 4th NC Reg't as
stated on the marker; this reg't was
formed by his Uncle Thomas Polk of
Mecklenburg County, NC.
