If you walk along Parkers Ferry Road late at night, you might catch a glimpse of a swinging lantern light, said to be carried by the ghost of a preacher who died when he was struck by a train one night while he was out searching for his daughter. What became of the daughter no one knows, but it is said the preacher continues to search for her to this day and the light of the swinging lantern is often accompanied by the sound of a train whistle.
