    I was told there was a man who had sinus problems in fort Jackson that if you knocked on his grave 3 times and chanted his name he will come behind you with red blood eyes and his head floating in front of you when you turn around so when I was a kid I went over there with my sister she knocked on the grave enchanted and when we went home I experienced a bad bone cut across my arm and it never healed since then my brother has experienced hot noodles splashtown him and had a third degree burn when we went back to the grave and we knocked on and again and beg for him to stop he just cause more problems

    I live near this place called for Jackson I love going there but one day my little cousin and my brother coast in Merrick and Haven Merrick had accidentally slipped in the reservoir a big alligator came up to them locally we save them however I didn’t think that was an alligator it looks like a woman with a white dress but just had a long scaly body so from now on we never ever answer for Jackson unless we are forced because we are scared that something else will happen again so send me some feedback and I will gladly show you a picture of where I seen this woman just make it all go away
