Yes i can.The house is on a corner of a street called neese.It is close to uptown pendleton.To give a reason as to why i think the house is haunted is kinda long but i will give it a try.I was living with this girl in 1970'We were living in gastonia,n.c.Her sister and brother-inlaw who were living in pendletonThey came to gastonia to visit me and my girlfriend one night and left our house about eleven thirty at night.They ran into a bridge abutment on I-85 about three miles from our home.Both were killed instantly.My girfriend and i had to go to pendleton for the funeral of both of them.We went to their house,that they had left before coming to gastonia to to see us and walking into the house which they left after eating dinner and had not cleaned the dishes.Everything was left as is,i reckon that they intended on coming back home the next day.Well me and my girlfriend were going to stay all night in the house and go to the funeral the next day.We went and were going to sleep in their bedroom.We watched the tv in the bedroom because thay had a tv in the bedroom.My girlfriend went to sleep and i was trying to go to sleep,when there was a knocking on the head of the wooden bed.I thought that the bed was just cold and was popping from getting cold.But as i lay there,the knocking became more pronounced and more rapid.I woke my girlfriend up and asked her if she heard the same thing that i was hearing.She lay ther for a few minutes thinking that i was pulling a joke onher.The knocking continiued and she accused me of doing it.I told her that i was not doing it and showed her my hands and feet while the knocking kept going.She and i were terified.WE got up about one thirty and spent the rest of the night at her mothers.I do not know if her sister and brother-inlaw were doing it but there was something there.I pulled the house up on google earth and it looks like the house is empty.I can only assume that everyone who has lived in the house has experienced something.Thats my story,And it is true.No skeptic can change my mind. ps i would have to download google earth gain to get the the of the street right because i had the name written down and lost it.If interested,i will do that.Just ask.

Kittie,Some people do not know that there really are such as ghosts.But to experience one is truly amazing.It opens your eyes to the realization that there is such a thing.We are not supposed to look for them.If you are lucky enough to see and experience such a thing,then you are more open minded about the world and the things in it.

There is a book about it you can find it at the gaffney library. It tells about it all. That anyone knew about anyway. He lived in a little house over off of sixth street and if I am not mistaken he died in prison!
He actually lived at 2001 2nd Avenue here in Gaffney in a little 1 bedroom red mill house that he built with his own 2 hands. I know because I'm his grand daughter. If anything... That's why me and my family had that book took off the market because a lot of the content in it was extremely exaggerated.

No... He was stabbed to death by fellow inmate Kenneth Rumsey in 1972 in a prison in Columbia and then later Kenneth Rumsey killed himself. My daddy told me everything because he's Lee Roy Martin's son. That makes me Lee Roy Martin's grand daughter. By the way... I live in my grandpa's old house. It's haunted by his spirit... He's always watching me... Two... Lee Roy's Bridge, which is named after my grandpa is also haunted by the girl's spirit which is the girl he dumped over that bridge.

You have gotten wrong info here. Leroy Martin was sentenced to life in prison where he was killed by a fellow inmate.

Blondebaby09 is correct. Leroy Martin was sentenced to live in prison and was serving that sentence when I taught basic adult education at the SC Central Correctional Institution in Columbia in 1968-1969. For several weeks, he was a student in my class. He was returned to solitary confinement because of an incident with another inmate. Years later, after I left SC, I read he was killed by another inmate.
I recently saw the 2005 Spartanbug newspaper article. I have no idea what that is about. It must be bogus.
Wow! You was my grandpa's teacher!? That's so cool... Tell me what he was like in your class! OMG... Get back with me plz... I wanna here some stories about my Grandpa Lee Roy Martin!

The writer of the BS article is Susan Caldor. She also said there were 2 shows on AMW in 1993 about another manhunt for Martin. According to his autopsy report, Martin was already located in 1972. Stupid reporters.
Stupid reporters indeed. Lol

Hi, I'm LeeAnne Rachel Martin. As bad as I'd hate spill the beans, I'm Lee Roy Martin's grand daughter. So if any legit info known due to stories through my family passed down the line I'd definitely know more accurate information. My dad is his son. Reply if you have any questions.
