Olli Kinkkonen's headstone in Park Hill Cemetery sits near the graves of Isaac McGhie, Elmer Jackson and Elias Clayton, the victims of the 1920 lynching in Duluth. Kinkkonen was buried in an unmarked grave until 1993 when the Tyomies Society installed a headstone which reads "Olli Kinkkonen, 1881 — 1918, Victim of Warmongers."
