I spoke with Randy Mooremann with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s office. He has been in contact with the Morgan County Sheriff’s office and they have located a great-grandchild of Mr. Taylor’s. They are presently working out the details to get the tombstone back home.
According to Mr. Mooremann the tombstone was originally stolen along with another back in the early 1970’s. The other tombstone was recovered soon after, but this one had never been located … until now.
This is great news! Another tombstone returned to its proper resting place.
