Birth: Feb. 11, 1851
Mercer County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Dec. 1, 1889
Colusa County
California, USA

Mr. C.M. Polly, formerly of this county, died at his home, Little Stony Cal., Dec. 1. Mr. Polly was an Adair county boy. It was here he grew to manhood and formed the attachments of boyhood friendships that last through life. He was a excellent student, upright in character, honorable in every act, and greatly beloved by his many friends. He was a graduate of the Kirksville Normal, taking his honors in the class of 1878. After graduating he took charge of a school in California. Close confinement to his duties brought on consumption, and in the unequal struggle death came out the victor, and a manly man passed out of sight to be remembered with kindliest feelings and tenderest sympathies by many friends.
