What are some of the stories you always heard and wondered about growing up in Milton? There are many local legends and stories. Like the bloody hand print in the grave yard.

There was one story told by my grandfather that says they had a club of which the initiation was that a new member had to go to the cemetary at night and drive a stake into a certain grave. One time they sent a kid to do just that. The next morning the boys parents came looking for him because he hadnt returned home the night before.They directed the parents to the cemetary in which they knew he had went. The boy was found dead. He had driven the stake thru his own long coat and the coroner surmised he had died of heart failure due to fright because when he stood up he thought something had reached up from the grave and grabbed him.

There was another story told by my grandmother who had 11 kids. When she was younger and only had the first two, she was in the kitchen washing dishes when the house began to shake. Thinking it was an earthquake she gathered up the two children and ran out the back door to the edge of the garden. Upon looking back she spotted a see thru mist of vapor sitting on top of the house that eventually disapated. She was always a god fearing woman that served god, so one might assume it was something supernatural whether good or evil.

My dad once told me a similar story but it was a black cloud directly over the house.What made it peculiar was it was a sunny day with no other clouds in the sky.The story of the hand print was a myth and we debunked it as children.This story also came around the time of stories of satanic cults meeting in the graveyard around the tri-state area.We stupidly I must add would attempt to see them in the graveyard in Milton (which we never did see anything).

There is the legends of the couples that swapped wives at Cloud Nine that is the Evergreen Baptist Church now. Some of them is still living. They put there keys in a basket and drew out who they were going to sleep with that night. There was some very promennet people involved.

I've heard that story. It was on rt 60 at the old span heading west where engines inc. is. He was supposedly hung and a sign was put around his neck that read ," N----R dont let the sun set on your head".
Or something similar to that.

I don't think that was all that long ago. I don't know about any hanging, but supposedly there was supposedly a banner that said that on main street.

No! They didn't hang a man they just had a sign warning of it! It did read what you said above.

[QUOTE who="?"]The only legend of Milton......BUDDHA....[/QUOTE]

I was the one who taught him how to fight.When he was incarcerated in the daugherty center as a juvenile all the other kids use to pick on him and make fun of his weight. I would take him to the room where the punching bag was and showed him proper offense and defense. Little pricks didnt mess with him much longer. He later became a bouncer.

This story is an old urban legend & has at least 3 variances I have personally heard. http://research.udmercy.edu/find/special_coll...
