MENDOTA, Minn. (UPI) -- Authorities are investigating vandalism at an historic cemetery in Mendota. St. Peter's Church pastor Kevin1 grave markers were damaged last week. The parish was the first in Minnesota, having been founded in 1840. The cemetery contains graves of some of Minnesota's earliest permanent white settlers. Some of the headstones that were broken or knocked over bore dates of people who died in the mid-1800s, Clinton said. Other damage included people's names, and "satanic" symbols were written in chalk on an alter.
