VINTON COUNTY, Ohio — Police in a southern Ohio community are investigating after a family discovered vandals had destroyed a cemetery from the 1800s.
Amy Beaver described the situation in a viral Facebook post:
“We decided to spend this beautiful day on a nature hike. We hiked through the Natural beauty of the Zaleski State forest.
Upon leaving our hiking destination the kid’s wanted to go and visit an old family Cemetery just up from Moonville in which most of the stones date back to the early 1800s.
What we thought to be trash was in fact smashed and broken pieces of over 200 years of family history. Almost every single tombstone was broken. We told the children not to touch anything.”
The Vinton County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the situation.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Vinton County Sheriff’s office at 740-596-4222.
