I have heard of place simalar to that story in garrison there is a rd called mongomery and there is also a big hill which people call ni#$er hill (not trying to say anything bad but that is what its called ) they say that it is called that becouse they used to be a tree at the top of the hill where they had hangings, not sure if its true or if the tree is still there .

The story in old newspapers state that it is called that because a little slave boy was killed there a wagon rolled over him and killed him.

My mom used to talk about the street between the old Cooper Bros. building and the Commercial Hotel being haunted. I think she said there used to be an old rock wall thro there and the water was always up in there. She said you could always hear and feel someone walking behind you, following you to the railroad tracks then they would stop.

From what i have heard that tombstone glows because of the shine from a nearby pole light. I know the person who is burried under that tombstone...don't think she would haunt anyone..lol...

according to legend the tombstone that glows is at salt lick ..polksville cemetery. also have read of slate hollow haunted by a dark figured man with red eyes half goat half man that if you approached him he turned into a flock of black birds that flew over you. said you could hear screams coming from deep in the hollow and at that location nothing lives no grass no trees it is all dead.

east fork cemetery the legend is that if you enter the cemetery at night a light will come from the church if you walk through the light you will hear footsteps behind you that become louder and faster as you walk through the light. the story is if you start to run and are caught by the demon chasing you . you will never leave the cemetery
