About Mary "Aunt Polly" Hill (Carmichael)

Came from Tennessee. Buried in a cemetery on the Sam Shippy farm (near Warrensburg, MO). Also known as the "Carmichael" Cemetery.

Mentioned in the book The History of Johnson County by the Kansas City Historical Company, page 541 "Concealed Records" in which she hid the county records in her attic (and later, the woods) to keep them safe from the impending arrival of the Union Army, from 1861 - 1865. At the close of the war she claimed to accidentally come across the records, thereby returning them to the county clerk's office.
