Greetings, Monica. Thanks very much for your note. My family and I would be THRILLED to have that picture of Carrie Polley's mother. Do you have a scanned copy that you could email to me?

According to the information I have, Carrie's mother was Evelyn C. Polley (sometimes spelled Eveline or Evalina, maiden name Norwood). Evelyn was born October 29, 1849, date of death unknown, but she was alive on June 5, 1919, the day of Carrie's wedding to Emil Ohman.

Carrie's father was William John Polley, who was born in August 1847 somewhere in Canada and immigrated to the USA in 1868. We don't know exactly when he died. He was alive and 52 years old in the 1900 census; in the 1905 census, his wife is listed as widowed.

Can you offer me any suggestions how I might learn when William and Evelyn died? Do you have records of births and deaths for Gilman area? If I can have a link to the files, I'd be glad to do my own research.

Lastly, I'm hoping to learn how William John Polley was related to James Polley (1848-1925), the founder of Polley, Wisconsin. William John and James were only a year apart in age; I have wondered if they could be brothers or more likely cousins. Is there a family tree available for James?

Many, many thanks for any help you can give me! My email is ymiranthis(at)ymail(dot)com.

Kindest regards, Yvonne Miranthis
