The owner of Sugar Bush Bed and Breakfast, across the street from the cemetery says she was shocked when she heard the news.
"In my own family, I had so many that served this country, in World War I, World War II, and my brother was in Korea, and to think someone could come in and do damage, it's just heartbreaking," said Molly Mahanna, owner of Sugar Bush Bed and Breakfast.
And while it was heartbreaking for Mahanna, it is a crime to Oneida County Sheriff's Office.
Officials say the suspects came into Evergreen Cemetery in the Town of Trenton and stole a headstone dating back to the Civil War Era.
But it didn't stop there.
"There was another one that was knocked over, knocked off it's base and that headstone belonged to a veteran of World Wars I, II, and The Korean War," said Oneida County Sheriff, Robert Maciol.
Ms. Mahanna says those kinds of actions are a sign of disrespect, and can't figure out why someone would do that.
"I don't know what their ideas are....to come in and destroy? Are they angry? Why? I would like to know why they would come in and do damage like that," said Mahanna.
Ms. Mahanna might not have answers to the missing and vandalized headstones, but she does say that mischief is not a regular thing in her neighborhood.
"It's a wonderful quiet, residential area, wonderful people, and we've been here for 40 years and I can attest to the grand people that are in this area," said Mahanna.
The Oneida County Sheriff Office is asking anyone with any information on the headstones to call the Barneveld Field Office at 315-896-2985
