Reflections for City Marshal William G. Jones

As a former dispatcher, born a Jones in Cherryvale, Ks in the 80's, with Kin from Laurel County Kentucky, same as the Marshal William G Jones' family history and the uncanny resemblance to my cousin and uncle, I feel a great deal of sadness and strong connection to the Marshal. We will share your story, visit your headstone and remember your legacy as we dig to find the family information we are missing to make connections.

Thank you for your service Marshal W. G. Jones

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 108th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

On behalf of my father, William H. Converse, a grand-nephew of City Marshal Jones, who alone in our family, knew that this man was a true hero, deserving to be remembered fondly by both the citizens he died protecting and the descendants of his wife and three children who returned to Kentucky in 1906. Our sincere gratitude to Chief Matt Dennis, of the Cherryvale (KS) Police Department (another hero in my book), for bringing Marshal Jones' history to light, spearheading a major fundraising effort to place a beautiful headstone at Jones' gravesite....and also for placing memorial plaques in the lobby of the Cherryvale PD for all to see. Chief Dennis, thank you so much, sir. We will never forget you and what you have done for our family.
