Apparently a grave which is adorned with a statue of the deceased is said to cry. And it isn’t condensation either, really.

    I’m from carthage ms. i have lived in kosciusko when i was 12. N yes this is a true story. i was told this story from my grandpa.

  2. No, it is the old statue of Mrs. Kelly, I grew up in Kosciusko. She was an old school teacher from the late 1800s. Many stories to this “Haunted” place. Do your homework before you go!

    • Mrs. Kelly was her name. It’s been told that she murdered her kids but I was also told that her kids died from some disease in which she later also died. They were all buried around her inside a fence where her statue is. Her husband placed the statue on her grave so that she could watch the house. If you go the grave site, you will see the house that she is looking at. Me and some friends went there one night to see if it was true but we ran off after hearing some strange noises.

Her husband added a 3rd floor to his home so that he could watch over her grave but I also her it was put here so that she could watch the house.
