What’s the story behind this marker?

A reader sent in a note and photo, wondering what the story is behind this primitive-looking marker alongside Miller Creek in Lincoln Park:

It reads: "____ DAY, 1911-1937, DIED HERE"

A quick search of the News Tribune’s electronic archives turned up no recent mention of the marker; nothing showed up in Google searches for a combination of the name, year, place, etc.

Can someone out there provide the story behind this monument? If you know the background, please post a comment or send me an e-mail at akrueger@duluthnews.com.

  1. The marker is located off of 27th Avenue West, on the corner of West 6th Street and Lincoln Parkway.

  2. It’s on the west edge of the park, along the road where Sixth Street turns north and becomes Lincoln Parkway.

    It’s located on the park side of the turn, behind a railing. When you’re there it’s hard to miss.
