  1. We live on the Japser county side. My mother says a man that worked for my grandfather drowned behind the bar. He likec to gamble and had won a large sum the night he died. When he was found he had no money. He had also been given a hogs head in a cast iron kettle. The kettle was not found when the hooked the bayou to find him. It was believed he was killed for his money. This happened in the 50’s.

  2. my father lived in that house for a short time as a child he said weird things were always happening i remember him taking me to see that house when i was young my father wanted to go inside and check it out since its falling apart he told me to stay in the car as he walked to the door i remember seeing a man in the upstairs window before i could say anything my father turned around before entering i found out years later that as he was about to to test the door knob he heard loud knocking from the other side
