Missouri Comptroller Isaac H. Sturgeon was recently in KY and was shocked at the condition of the Boone monument in Frankfurt. <It is simply scandalous the way in which the lot has been neglected, and nothing less than vandalism the way the monument has been chipped to pieces. Why, the names of Bpone and wife are scarcely discernible, from the ruthless manner in which the raised letters have been chipped off by relic hunters. It did make me indignant to see . . . and I remarked to Miss Rose Crittenden that "if you Kentuckians don't protedct this monument better, you may expect to hear a demand from the next Missiouri Legislature that the ashes of Daniel Boone and wife be returned to Missouri soil."> unidentified newspaper clipping, circa 1890s, W.
