June 11, 2014 - Residents of Mill Village saying a piece of their history was destroyed after cemetery headstones were broken and damaged. Numerous headstones in the cemetery were overturned and some even noticeably destroyed, broken and shattered on the ground.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened at the grave sites, officials say 12 years ago some of the headstones were also knocked over but this is the first time they have actually been broken. Caretakers say these headstones date back as far as the 1700s and are irreplaceable.

The cemetery also had 20 out of 28 veteran markers stolen just before Memorial Day.
