She was a school teacher & lived off of meridian.... she didn't hang anybody & wasn't a witch. The school house caught on fire & a few kids perished. That's when the cruel "witch"rumors began. Her name wasn't even Beulah & her name is not known. She died @ swedish american & is buried @ greenwood cemetery.

The person that hung his children at bloods point, was Arthur Blood. His children were acquainted with an old woman that was said to be a witch. Crops & animals were dying & rumors were getting back to Arthur Blood, that it was because of his children being around " the witch". He went crazy & hung his kids one by one.

Witch Beulah, Marie Buskie was a personal friend of mine, and she was not a witch. She was a retired schoolteacher, in fact, she taught my father at Lincoln Park School. I visited her many times at her home. How sad that people tormented her all those years. Shame on all of you. How would you feel if someone did that to someone you cared about? She never married or had any children.Her closest relative was her brother and sister. Well, no one can harass or harm her now. The next time you people hear about an old woman living alone, how about seeing if you can give her a hand and not condemn her. Hell, I thought that the witch trials ended in the 1600s

I use to work for her brother Richard. No truth to any of the storys about her hanging anyone. It was all a urban legend. She just wanted to be left alone and live out her life. But no one would let her.

I helped remove rocks from her lawn one summer that were thrown at her house and helped clean up the yard a bit. She was a friendly harmless lady, but a little odd. She didn't deserve to be treated so badly.

I lived in the farm house across the street from her when I was a little girl, in the late 70's. She was an awesome lady. She used to bring me flowers all the time. She was not a witch. Glad to see someone sticking up for her. When we lived there, my parents were always running people off from her house that were harassing her.

I was one of many who went to her home to see what it was like. We didn't mean any harm, only wanted to satisfy our curiousity. I have long felt ashamed for it.

I'm 37 and I grew up listening to my dad tell stories about witch Beulah and bloods point. Never had anything strange happen to me or seen anything but good to reminisce
