Old Mike was found dead in the city park in 1911. He was embalmed by the local mortuary. Efforts were made to identify him, but they were unsuccessful. He was given the name "Mike". Many people visited the mortuary to view Old Mike over the years. Finally, he was ordered buried by the state in 1975. His identity was still unknown. A small grave marker with the name Mike marks his grave in DeAnn Cemetery.
