hought your readers may want to know that vandals targeted two
cemeteries in Wayne County between midnight on April 1st and April 2nd,
Hazel Dell and Bollman Chapel. On the east side of Hazel Dell Cemetery,
vandals toppled 30 headstones, leaving two standing. Stones carry names
like Swigle, Corbett, Lohr, Kimple and Holder. The overturned Veteran's
markers and even targeted an infant. In Bollman Chapel Cemetery the
Roberts and Young names appear repeatedly.
The youths responsible for this action were arrested on April 13th.
They range from age 15 to age 19 and were from Allerton.
The Hazel Dell cemetery was started by my GGrandfather Philip Kimple. I
was afraid this was going to happen since it is located in a remote
location. Would appreciate any details on the damage done to the Kimple
stones if anyone has been out there to see it. I hope the kids are
properly punished. What a shame
this had to happen.
