  1. Too Funny! I know several people buried there & have spent much time there both day & night as a kid. Used to fish that stream in the woods behind it. It no more haunted than Disney land.

    • I agree. My family used to have picnics there every year for about 50 years! Most of my family is there. Never been “pulled” to a stream! Lovely, lovely place.

  2. I was there not to long ago with a friend and about 3 or 4 minutes in my friend sees something move about the hight of a teenager now it was a very still night no wind or a thing moving and we knew we wher alone and then I look over and see a white cat trotting along about 20 30 yards from me and I was scanning the area and there was no cat before then I looked left scanning and then turned right and there it was. There was something weird about the cat when I was looking at it it turned to me and that’s when i ran faster than I ever have because it’s eyes wher looking straight at me glowing almost and I had no flashlights with me sonic debunked it being eye shine so that’s my story.

  3. Hi it’s Susan again. Unfortunately since I last wrote, my mom is there now. Anyway, I was there about 3 weeks ago and heard gunshots. Then, I saw a deer come out of the woods in the direction of the gunshots. It stopped to meander in the cemetery. I think someone was trying to scare the deer off. I started tooting my horn to let whoever shot the rifle that there was a HUMAN in the area so they would stop. Folks, people DO live around there. Not ghosts. I have to admit the whole thing was a bit unnerving and never had anything like that happen in the 50 some odd years I’ve been going there.
