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.
