The following was a post from the Lewis Co. US Genweb Message Board:

"Lewis County Journal and Republican Oct 3, 2008

FRONT PAGE NEWS: 7TH DAY SETTLEMENT CEMETERY DAMAGED " Over 50 headstones at the 7th Day Settlement Cemetery in the Town of Watson were destroyed and turned over. 'In talking to the sheriff we thought either Thursday or Friday night it might have happened", Virgil Taylor, Watson town supervisor, told the Journal.
