Also searched records at Springfield, KY library and courthouse in Springfield, KY. I have a letter, written Feb 2001, from the original owner, Roman Miller, confirming there is a grave on this land. The new owner bought it somewhere after Feb 2001.
I have a picture of the headstone which was there as of Feb 10, 2001 before new owner bought farm. When I visited in June 2002, the headstone was gone.
