VINCENT CEMETERY, Near MOORESVILLE, MARSHALL COUNTY TENNESSEE


ORR, footstone with initials; I. O., no other information or stones found.

Footstones are mostly all that remains here. Folks this is the work of a vandal, also known as the "Scum of the Earth." A tree falling on a stone will not cause widespread random scattering and missing pieces of stone that I found here. The works of a Vandal generally manifest itself this way. First they take stones and smash them together and break as many as they can. Next they engage in a throwing party, scattering the fragments around causing actually more damage than breaking them, since epoxy glue can repair them if found.
