We wish to thank The Advocate-Messenger for its coverage of the Planning and Zoning meeting Aug. 17, at which a proposed housing development off of Buster Pike and Shakertown Road (Ky. 33) was discussed.
At the meeting, we stated that a pioneer cemetery once existed on the property. We would like to clarify one issue concerning tombstones in this cemetery. A statement was made that no tombstones were found in the stone fence that was recently removed from the property. The stone fence that was recently removed was in front of the site of the original log farmhouse. The unmarked tombstones that marked the pioneer graves were not in that fence, but were part of a low wall behind the log house. Both the log house and this low wall were removed many years ago but the existence of the cemetery was known by an earlier owner of the property.
