Clifton Cemetery

The story was told to me from my mother …. When she was a child a little girl had passed away around 10 or 11 years old. After her grave was prepared (dug) ground water had seeped into the grave. That night she came to the grave diggers and warned them not to bury her in that grave.

They did place her in that grave and an image of her appeared on the tree at the head of the grave. The men who dug the grave and those who laid her to rest in the grave all died within a month after they laid their hands on the image of the girl on the tree.

It spooked the community so bad they burnt and cut the tree down. You can see the burnt tree stump at the head of her grave still.

  1. My stepmothers grave is at Clifton cemetery. We did find the burnt tree stump and were wondering if anyone knows the girls name or deathdate. Many of the graves are only marked with boulders and no engraving.

    • Is there any contact information for this cemetery? I’m very interested in investing this site but can’t find a contact number to ask for permission. I went out and looked at it and it has a gate with a “no trespassing” sign on it.

    Did visit the graveyard today. Found the stump but didn’t find the girl’s headstone. Maybe someone took it. It did have a “no trespassing” sign at the entrance which I’ve never seen at a cemetery before but it did specify no hunting or trapping. Friend had family buried there so was on a search for their gravesites, too.
