Pulaski County Subdivision May Contain Three Graves

Officials could be closer to finding out why some skeletal remains were buried in what's now a Pulaski County neighborhood.

The lot in the Woodland Trail subdivision could contain as many as three graves.

The remains were found last week when a driveway was being cleared out for a new house.

The coroner says he's been contacted by a man who says his grandfather knew of three slaves that were buried there, possibly more than 100 years ago.

"It's a good source. If his grandfather told him three and they never changed the numbers, then we're pretty sure that there's three and they're going to continue to look and see if they can find the third," explained Richard New, Pulaski County coroner.

"We've identified some fabric, remnants of clothing, buttons and a shoe," said Marcie Venter, with the Ky, Archaeological Survey.

Officials believe the graves could date back to the early 1900s.
