LOCATION OF CEMETERY:
The Polston/Poston Cemetery is located on what was once known as the OLD STEPHEN GOODMAN FARM in the 1800's and known as the ISAAC MARTIN PRESLEY FARM in 1930_1971. It is located off Highway 88, seven miles west of Munfordville, Hart County, Kentucky, in the area known as the Kessinger Community. It is located about one_fourth mile off Highway 88 on a hill. The cemetery is in very bad shape as it is grown up and many of the tombstones are broken and many of the gravesites are sunk in.
