Vandals damage markers at Olive Branch Cemetery

The Olive Branch Cemetery was vandalized last week.

Sixteen of the grave markers were knocked over and suffered considerable damage, and one head stone was cracked into several pieces.

“We may not be able to repair that one,” said Batavia Township trustee Rex Parsons.

A resident of Stonelick Township stopped by the cemetery and noticed the damage at 1:30 p.m. March 14.

The new fence surrounding the cemetery was also damaged.
