Mount Olive Cemetery, or Lucas Cemetery, has a ghost named Mary Jane. One legend has it that she was burned at the stake in the 1800s after being accused of witchcraft. Another says she was a Native-American medicine woman, and some folks thought her profession was a mite too close to witchcraft, and so she was harassed. Mary Jane is said to have put a curse on the land. Reports say No Trespassing is allowed here as it is private property.

  1. This location is very private and hosts some activity. It is a shame that the road to it is closed; however, the cemetery is in disarray and there has been a nice monument placed at the front… for no one to see. The plaque lists the names of the current occupants, to include MJ.

  2. The huge pine tree that stood in the middle is now gone. I have been there several times and each time the soldier that stands guard always makes an appearance. it is sad that people haven’t been respectful, at one time they were trying to put the gravestones back together and a bunch of kids came in a destroyed them. One of my favorite haunts tho.
