GRANDPA JONES-MARKER
Kentucky historical group says fundraising falling short for Grandpa Jones marker

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, July 13, 2014 12:43 PM EDT
HENDERSON, Ky.


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 Gleaner reports the Henderson County Historical and Genealogical Society had hoped to have the needed money in hand by now. Society vice president Linda Hallmark says the group is thankful for the $700 that's been raised, but the project's cost is $2,500.

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.
