Birth: Nov. 24, 1926
Death: Dec. 30, 1997

Lynn, who was not given a middle name, was the youngest child of Laura Alice (Fitch) and Arthur James Polhemus. His maternal grandparents were Genevieve Lillian (Sherman) and Florus DeWitt Fitch, and his paternal grand parents were Alice Louise (Humphreys) and John Martin Polhemus. Lynn was raised on the farm homesteaded by his paternal grandparents. He began working the farm as a child and continued working it with his father until his father's ill health forced him to retire. Several years before his death his own ill health forced him to retire. Lynn was a devoted husband, the father of two children, one of whom predeceased him, and the grandfather of several.

Note: Lynn is not buried at Prairie Home. He was cremated and the ashes scattered on the farm. The headstone is a cenotaph.
