Vegors Cemetery

You are here Home  > Cemeteries >  Vegors Cemetery

The cemetery is said to be haunted by the spirits of restless Native Americans and Mrs. Henry Lott, the wife of a man who was known to cheat the Native Americans and steal their horses. She was killed while trying to escape from angry Native Americans seeking revenge, although her husband survived. It is said that the grounds were once an ancient Indian burial site, but the bones were moved to make way for the white cemetery.

  1. Lott was too afraid to involve the Sioux, who only frightened the woman, but his young son, Milton froze to death trying to catch up with his fleeing father. His mother took ill and died of consumption and likely a nervous breakdown, or was killed by her own fears…as she was not supposedly harmed physically. Lott later killed a small village of Sioux in revenge and set the wheels rolling toward the Spirit Lake Massacre, some 33 whites were slaughtered by related Sioux braves a few years later. More information can be obtained about this indecent if needed.

    This place is crazy lots of noises in the woods, you feel like your being followed by something..loud screams in woods..definatally worth it..;)

  3. My old team investigated this cemetery quite a few times. The surrounding woods have figures roaming in them some that sound like a huge man is coming out at you, we have caught photos of half spirits walking through the cemetery. Voices, unexpressed emotions taking over you. There is on tomb that has a mouse the family puts tubes of toliet paper on the grave and the mouse can been seen running in and out of the tube but the mouse only visits this tombstone no other. It was one of my favorite spots to visit as its never short of paranormal experiences.

  4. I came here when I was in high school with my boyfriend. He lived close to it and went there often as he found it calming. I however had a different experience. Before we got there, my breathing because labored and heavy, and difficult. When we arrived it was seemingly better until we started to walk closer to the road side of the cemetery. I got to a certain spot abd my body froze. I physically could not move forward from that spot. I could move backwards but no further forward. Years later, a friend and we’re driving around. I really wasn’t paying attention to where we were at, when suddenly it became hard to breathe, And a heavy fig appeared. He was worried because I suddenly stopped talking and I asked him if by chance we were by Vegors. We were. He was going to stop there but I couldn’t breathe. He kept driving. Never in my life have I experienced such push back from a spirit. Not sure why, but something doesn’t want me there.

  5. About this time last year, a friend and I attempted to go out to Vegors. Once we hit Stratford, her GPS started rerouting every block or so, starting with where it originally told us to turn first by the school. We started to get this feeling of being chased; both of us had the hair on the back of our neck standing up and my eyes were dripping tears, but I wasn’t crying. The GPS rerouted so many times that we ended up on the Dragoon Trail, almost to Lehigh. At one point she mentioned that her biggest fear is going over water that she can’t see through. Not even five minutes later we were going over a bridge that was under construction, and the guardrail on our right was not up yet, only traffic cones. We managed to get turned around in Dayton, and ended up back in Stratford. At that point I broke open a cigarette as an offering to any spirits to help guide us home, and we headed back to Jewell. I refuse to go back. Something did not want us there for any reason.

  6. Just found out I have 4-6 direct relatives buried there.

    A heavy storm broke out the first time I went to visit when I was a kid. It was completely clear that night but as soon as we got out of the car it started pouring heavy rain and lightning/thunder.

  7. My friends and i took a ouija board out here once and set it on a grave of a recently deceased man, we got the board to work and asked him to talk to us and the board read “no, please leave im at peace” so we respected that answer put the board back in the car and left. Another time we visited at night we pulled up but there was a red truck parked there we didnt want to be there while other ppl were there so we left to drive around til they left. Well everyone knows vegors is on a gravel road, with not many driveways, we pulled back up to the entrance of the cementary when the red truck sped out, so we followed them, they were driving at least 50mph and we lost them, it was weird b/c we were right behind them, no dust from the gravel road was flying up like it was behind us, we could see the tail lights then all of a sudden the truck vanishes….we drove up and down that road for like 30min looking for this truck and couldnt locate it, weird, so we went to the cementary looked around, walked around and started see shit in the woods, and hearing voices, we all took off running to the car, my friend 250+ pound male pushed me out of the way so he could get in the car first he was so scared….

  8. Few friends and I went here last summer, we walked around and we all felt a creepy feeling, then all of a sudden it started to get foggy and there was this cold chill, two of our friends got scared and got back in the car and drove down the road, two o my friends and I stood there and walked back to the front, then sat on a bench and as we sat my friend stood up and screamed as if he saw something, the two in the car drove back to us and we ran and got in the car afterwards driving into town my friend who saw the figure started to react strange his breathing was off and he was foaming out of the mouth, his eyes were rolled back into his head and it was the scariest thing I’ve ever seen. This place is crazy.
