MORRISTOWN — A central Indiana company has finished repairing nearly two dozen headstones that vandals damaged in cemetery dating to the early 1800s.
The 22 headstones toppled, broken or otherwise damaged at the Davis-Bennet Cemetery in Morristown included one belonging to a Revolutionary War veteran and his wife.
Four juveniles allegedly damaged the headstones, causing nearly $10,000 in damage to the markers at the cemetery 25 miles (40 kilometers) southeast of Indianapolis.
Greenfield Granite Co. was hired to repair the headstones and its workers recently finished repairing and cleaning the markers at the cemetery.
Co-owner Amy Strohl tells The Shelbyville News it’s sad that someone would intentionally damage gravestones for their own gratification. She says all repair workers can do is try to piece the stones back together.
