MILFORD - A headstone stolen from the Milford Cemetery over the weekend was found hidden in the woods Wednesday.

Cemetery Superintendent Raymond Scholl found the headstone several yards away from where it has stood since 1792 after noticing drag marks in the dirt.

The headstone, known as the "Molly Stone," has been featured in several anthologies on gravestones. Scholl says when he decides to return the headstone to its grave he will make sure to secure it better.
