Question Granite Foundation Corner Stone Issue

Due to a neighbor paving their driveway, I have started having major water problems in my 100 yr. old home and Hurricane Irene only made it worse. I am currently working on the drainage and this weekend will be repointing the foundation myself. The problem is the large cornerstone has broken free and although I can't remove it, it will twist almost completely out of place and sticks out from its original resting place by about 3" to 4". The foundation is quite thick and the interior stones are not misplaced and the joints are still solid on the inside. I can find no evidence of the foundation being off kilter but I need to get this repaired immediately.

Do I put new stones in to fill the gap prior to doing the tuckpointing or must the stone be replaced in its original position? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
