Reflections for Constable John Holton

Rest In Peace constable Holton. He would be, I believe, my great great great Grandfather. He would be proud to know that his grandson down the line chose to follow the path of being a law man. I believe he was the first Law Enforcement Official in the state of Kentucky to be killed in the line of duty.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 164th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.
