The Polk County Historical Society is seeking help locating information for a project at the Netherlands American Cemetery in Margarten, Netherlands.

The project, Faces of Margarten, seeks to memorialize World War II soldiers. 

Working with Teresa Hirsch of Indianapolis, Indiana, an American volunteer assisting the cemetery, the historical society is looking for photographs of two soldiers with Polk County roots — Deyrell C. Anderson and Earl J. Doke. 

Anyone with information on Anderson or Doke should contact the Polk County Historical Society at or Hirsch at
