Hendrysburg, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities say vandals have split tombstones in half and smashed grave markers on the road at a historic cemetery in eastern Ohio.
Attacks on Salem Cemetery in Kirkwood Township first started in April of last year, then stopped for a time, but recently began again.
Several Revolutionary War veterans are buried at the graveyard near Hendrysburg, 96 miles east of Columbus.
Some of the broken tombstones have been repaired with glue.
Local residents say the cemetery has long been a gathering spot for partying teenagers.
The Belmont County Sheriff's Office is looking for the vandals.
