The original story is that a Black man raped a white woman way, way back in the day. They hanged him on that hill. The old story is that when the moon was full you could look a certain way up through the trees and see a figure (him) hanging there. The trees have been cut and the land mined etc... since those days though.

I have lived here on "ni__er gallus" my whole life. Sorry for the quotes, but thats what it has always been called. Your story is the same one told to me many times over the last 30years. They hung him by his galluses. I also heard he was innocent, but because he was black, he got the blame. So sad, if this is true. But, it is a very spookey place to be at late at night. It is up the left hand fork of Stinson, past the old pay lake at the top of the hill on the left. Thats where I was always told it took place.

This person said it right numb-nuts " ST Rt 784" said Quote "On St. Rt.784 what they call Three Prong it on the Greenup County and Lewis County line. It is know none as Dummitt Ridge I think" Dummitt Ridge is to the left at the top of the hill though.

No it isn't. The hill and legend in question is in Carter County as given in the directions posted by Nick, Friend, and Shelly.
