His father, a native of Massachusetts, followed through life the trade of millwright, and also agricultural pursuits; he moved to Ohio in March, 1816, settling in Gallia county, whence, after selling his farm, in March, 1858, he removed to Jackson county, Ohio, where he resided permanently until his demise in 1864; he had been an active participant in the war of 1812, and was the son of Daniel Polley, a revolutionary soldier. His mother, a native of Chenango county, New York, was a daughter of Zephaniah Holcomb, one of the-colonial patriots and an officer in the army of the confederated provinces. Until his fourteenth year was attained his days were passed alternately in attending school in the winter months and in working on a farm during the summer seasons. In 1829 he was taken by his father to learn the trade of millwright, while continuing to labor a part of the time as farm-assistant. In this manner he was then assiduously employed until 1852. At the age of twenty-one he had conquered so thoroughly the mysteries and difficulties of his trade that he took the rank of master-wright, and his initial work as a master-wright was done in Scioto county, Ohio. Previous to 1845, the date of his settlement in Lawrence county, Ohio, he worked for varying periods in West Virginia and in Gallia and Scioto counties, and in other parts of Ohio; subsequently he settled in Elizabeth township, Lawrence county, and was there employed principally in working at his trade for about one year. He then moved to a place near Ironton, in Upper township, where, still engaged at his trade, he remained until 1855, when he settled in Ironton, where he has since resided. In 1852 he was elected Magistrate of Upper township, and on his settlement in Ironton was elected to the same office, which through successive re-elections was retained by him until 1869. In that year he was elected Probate Judge of Lawrence county; was re-elected in 1872, and has down to the present time held this office for about six years. In 1856 he was elected Township Clerk of Upper township; has been re-elected several times, and still fills that position. His views and sentiments concerning the polity of his country incline him toward the Republican party, and his first vote at a Presidential election was cast in favor of General Harrison. Religiously, he holds to the form and spirit of the Baptist Church, of which he has been a member since 1852. For a number of years he has been a member of the Masonic fraternity, and has taken a prominent part also as an earnest advocate in the movements of the temperance organizations. He was married, May 10th, 1849, to Elizabeth Mayhew, of Lawrence county, Ohio who died December 25th, 1851, with issue of two children; and again, February 28th, 1854, to Rebecca Staley, of Wayne county, West Virginia.
