Split in four parts, the original tombstone of Sheriff Samuel Jones now rests in Lecompton after decades abandoned in a New Mexico cemetery. Jones was the first sheriff of Douglas County and a pro-slavery advocate.
Copy and paste the link:
a pro-slavery advocate is an understatement.
While he was pro-slavery and surely also had other issues, he is an important part of our local history. If we are selective in what we choose to remember, generations to come will not have the benefit of learning from earlier mistakes.
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
- George Santayana
