Kentucky Death Certificates for Franklin County, Kentucky 1911-1951 have indicated persons buried at Polsgrove, Ky,
Polsgrove Landing, Polsgrove Cemetery and Polsgrove Graveyard. On or near Polsgrove on Hwy. 12 are four cemeteries.
Two are known as Harrod Family Cemeteries; one as the Hutchinson Graveyard and the Polsgrove Cemetery being the
largest of the four.  It is impossible to determine the exact location by the indication of burial given by the funeral director.
Did he generalize by stating Polsgrove as a general location or was he referring to the cemetery known as Polsgrove.  Take
this into consideration when researching burials in this area.
