?Descendants of JACOB Polsgrove, son of George Polsgrove, the immigrant to Pennsylvania, 1732
The second of three brothers, Jacob removed his family in 1783/84 from Pennsylvania to
Hampshire Co, Virginia, where he appears in a family list of six people, (later became Hardy
Co., West VA).
He removed from there before 1792, to Kentucky, where his son George was born. He is found
in Scott Co., KY, in 1800. In 1803, his daughter, Margaret, married Phillip Huffman/Hoffman in
Harrison Co., KY. After that he does not appear in any more records.
Jacob had at least three sons and one daughter that I am sure of: Henry, b. ca 1783/4 in
Pennsylvania; Margaret, b. ?, md. 1803; Jacob, b. ca 1785 in VA; and George, b. ca 1792 in KY.
Henry is in the Cornstalk Brigade in 1808 in Pendleton Co., KY still there in 1810, in 1820 he is
in Henry Co., KY, in 1826 he receives a land Grant in Western Kentucky, and in 1830 he is in
Hickman Co., KY, where he remained with his family until he died.
Margaret, see above, is found in 1810 in Henry Co., KY, in 1820, in Franklin Co., KY, and in
1830 in Hickman Co., KY.
Jacob is in Pendleton Co., KY in 1810, in Henry Co., KY in 1820 and in Franklin Co., KY in
1830, where he remained with his family until he died after 1850.
George, born 1792 (see above) is at home in 1810, in Franklin Co., KY in 1820, and in Franklin
Co., Ky in 1830.
The line is George, born probably in Alsace, ca 1690-1710, arrived in Philadelphia, 1732;
Jacob, born 1748 in Pennsylvania, in RW records, 1781, tax lists in Pennsylvania from 1779-
1782, removed to the west; then siblings: Henry, Margaret, Jacob, George, all in Kentucky.
The Kentucky Henry did not marry Caty Miller, in Martinsburg, VA, now WVA. That Henry
was a son of George-2, son of George-1. They lived in and remained in Martinsburg until past
1830, according to the records.
Of the other sons of George-1, George-2's sons remained in Pennsylvania, except Henry in
Martinsburg, VA/WVA, and one who may have gone to Ohio; and Henry, son of George-1,
remained in Pennsylvania, as well as all his children.
