My neighbor was very upset as some of her family was buried here. She has already called the Attorney General and local authorities. The stones are still there, but they were bulldozed into a big pile and the ground leveled. When I can get photos I'll post them, but now I wanted to post a link to a web page at U of L which compiles all Kentucky Revised Statutes regarding cemetery laws.
Time permitting I would also like to do deed research and see if the cemetery was excluded from the deed for the surrounding land. Any volunteers to do this research?
