There are several websites out there that state something to the effect of “Aunt Johnson would hang anyone who trespassed on her property and the rope can still be seen to this day.” Does no one ever stop to wonder precisely how a middle-aged woman would manage to hang a whole gaggle of people all by herself? Did they all just willingly put their neck in a noose and go, “Well alrighty then, you just go ahead and string me up!”. The real legend is more impressive than the bastardized version, but perhaps makes for a less eerie ghost story. During the Civil War, a formation of the Home Guard murdered her husband and oldest son, either for feeding war deserters, or because the son refused to join the army. Her husband was apparently hanged from a tree on their property and the son was shot. Legend has it that Jenny and her remaining sons vowed to hunt down and kill every member of the squad that had been involved in the death of her husband and son and succeeded in killing seven out of the eight men. Today, people claim that if you approach her property, her ghost will appear and warn you off, still angry at people who come on to her property, and blaming them for the group who killed her husband and son.
