When traveling to Kentucky to visit the graves of my many family members in 1980. I visited Port Royal Cemetery, it was highly overgrown, almost up to your waste in the older section of the cemetery.

Sometime in 1990-1991 the Cemetery Association allowed the caretaker, to use a bush hog to push all the headstones in the older section of the cemetery into piles, to allow for the "thistle" to be cut, and grass to grow. This was approved by the Cemetery Association (per telephone call in March 2006 with Vicki Johnson, Member of the Board of Directors for the Cemetery Association who said that this was how it was done. She also informed me that they have "no record" of the locations of any of the graves in the cemetery, even though they were continuing to sell graves there. She also told me that it was their intent to create a "new location" for this headstone and reset them. As of August 2016, these headstone are still in piles and have not been reset. I contacted the Kentucky Attorney General and filed a complaint, and suggest that others do the same). Several of these headstones were destroyed or broken during this act.

George Jones, a Revolutionary War Soldier, were among those graves that were displaced due to this "deliberate" distruction by the Cemetery Association.

I would personally like to thank Viv Stewart for photographing this headstone for me.
