A group raising money to put up a historical marker honoring country music entertainer Louis "Grandpa" Jones at his western Kentucky birthplace says it's been disappointed by the response so far.
The Kentucky Historical Society authorized the marker in February.
Jones was born on Oct. 20, 1913 in the Niagara community in Henderson County. He began performing in the 1920s, joined the Grand Old Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1946, and was a cast member of the TV show "Hee Haw." He died in 1998.
