I'm looking for anyone who may have information about ghosts/witches/legends of the Morgan County area. I have heard a little bit about the Diden witches buried on Mill Creek in Sunbright, but would love to hear anything about the entire county.

I heard a tale about a phantom horse-drawn hearse carriage that was once said to ride over the montgomery bridge on it's way to the montgomery cemetary. Down in the river bottom on montgomery road just below wartburg. It is said that long ago someone was driving a team of horses pulling a hearse carriage down the hill on a dark rainy/foggy evening. It is said that it was flying down the hill at a great rate as it was running late on it's way to a funeral at the montgomery cemetary to bury the body of a recently departed soul. With only a carbide lantern to see by and the bridge (wooden with no rails in those days)The driver could not tell exactly where the edge of the bridge was as the river had swollen over it either causing it to give way due to the weight of the flood waters, or maybe the brige could not be seen just under the swollen river water,causing the horses to panic and bolt sending them, the diver & carriage and all into the river to drown. It is said that when the river is high on certain rainy or foggy nights, that the dim light of a carbide lantern can be seen coming down the hill headed towards the bridge and that if you are coming in the opposite direction as the ghostly light nears, you will see a spectral hearse carriage drawn by skeletal horses galloping onto the bridge; driven by a wraith driver as it then disappears into the swollen river! Recently there have been mutterings of hauntings at a double-wide home which now stands abandoned just past the bridge on the right headed towards wartburg. It is said that strange noises of horses galloping and neighing at night near the bridge could be heard from the open windows and porch of the double-wide home, as well as strange lights seen dancing both across the bridge and in the river-bed just behind the house. The house was a rental house. The last that was heard, it is said that no one stays in it for very long before it stands abandoned again!
