Was wondering if anyone knows of any areas in Letcher Co that have strange happenings that they will let small investigation groups come into to investigate? All adults not just some kids looking to have fun or cause trouble. Have had some ghost investigation experience. Thank you...

A GEE, I would have never known some one there would remember something like this. My mom and dad talking about this when I was a small boy.. And My dad Bruford Kiser, would go around singing that song.. And I as a small boy, about the age of 10, would foller him around, over to the black smith shop. If I can recall she had 5 small kids, and floyed frazier, went up there to date her, or ask her to marry him, and she said no.. That was the last hanging that took place in Letcher Co Ky. I don't rightly know the date it took place. floyed frazier.. piled rocks on her, and when he took the police to the place where he had piled rocks on her.. Some of the rock where 60 to 65 .lbs

The facts shown by the record before us are these: Ellen Flannery was a widow living on Pert Creek in Letcher county with her five children, between 3 and 13 years of age. She was in good health. On the morning of May 21, 1SX)7, she sent the two older children to town on an errand, and herself after breakfast went out to get some greens for dinner, leaving the three younger children at home. When the two older children returned, their mother was still absent, and could not be found. The five children stayed there alone that night, and the next morning the neighbors came In and 'began searching for her. After they had searched for her a while, she was found, not very for from the house, in a low place near the creek. A number of large rocks were upon ,her head and chest, which appeared to have been thrown upon her after she had fallen, and in some measure concealed her person. There was blood upon a bush near by, also blood upon the leaves and twigs and grass around, showing signs of a struggle. There were ugly knife wounds In her neck, and bruises about the head. Her skirt was torn off, but was under her. Her waist was on her, but much cut or torn. A short distance from her person was found some salad which she had cut, and as they went from this to the fence near by, blood stains were found on the fence where apparently bloody hands had been placed by some one in getting over the fence. Going on beyond the fence, the searchers found the track of a man made by a heavy brogan shoe, and there were an unusual number of tacks in the heel. Near by these tracks was found a case knife, and not far from it, between two logs and covered up with rocks, was found the woman's bonnet.

When they had got down the hill a man they met down there started down into the 'bottom, and the defendant snld to him: "She's not down there; there Is no use of going down there." After he was arrested his clothing was carefully examined; blood stains were found on the Khirt sleeves, and these had the appearance of having been washed at or rubbed in an effort to remove them. Ills nose had been bleeding, and he accounted for the blood

stains were also found on the hack of his shirt, on his pants, and at one point on his drawers ; the blood having gone through his pants and stained his drawers. When stripped there that day an abrasion of the skin was found back of the shoulder and another on the arm. He accounted for this by saying that he had been carrying some briars the day before, and had scratched himself there. But the place looked different from a 'briar scratch. They went to his house, and there they found a pair of brogan shoes belonging to him, which measured the same as the tracks they had found, and had the same peculiar arrangement of tacks in the heel. These shoes had blood stains on them. The deputy of the Jailer testified to this statement, made by the defendant to him after he was put In jail: "He asked me what I thought they would do with him, and I told him I did not know, and he asked me again what I thought they would do with him, and I told him I did not know. Then I asked him if he killed the woman, aud he said he did. He said he cut her throat and she bled to death." At one time he was taken to Pineville for safe-keeping. To the deputy sheriff who went there for him to bring him to betcher county for the trial, he made this statement: "When I first went there he asked me what I thought they would do with him. and I never told him, and he asked me again, I don't know how many times he asked me, and finally I said to him,'I think they will penitentiary yon for life,' or something just about that way and then he said,'I done It in self-defense.' and we went on a few steps further, and he said 'I done It because I had It to do.' " To a prisoner who was In the jail with him. he made this statement: "He told me he never killed her when he came to get the sand, but he got the sand and took it back home, and came back to fix up some fence, and she came to him. and he told her to come on around, and she would not come; said she would come when she got ready. And he said he picked up a rock and knocked her down, and she raised up and said:'Don't do that; you have killed me already'—and she run or raised up, and he said he cut her throat and put some rocks over her, laid them on her, and said he done that to hide the blood." He did not testify on the trial in his own defense. His mother, who was introduced in his behalf, testified, in substance, that she had sent him to school a great deal; that he did no good at school; that he was 23 years old; that he would not do work unless somebody was out with him to show him and help him do the wort; that he had not a good mind, and would fly Into a passion without a reasonable cause, and seemed to have no control of himself. Her testimony was sustained by several other witnesses to the effect that he had less sense than an average person of his age;

I'm talking to my mom right now on the phone, Mom said she raised on pertcreek, and said the rocks that was piled on her, some people had took these rocks and place them under a house to hold the house up.

Cathrien Jones which is my moms mom.. said " she saw Ellen Flannery, after she was killed. Cathrien Jones was walking by there one night coming home from church, and saw Ellen Flannery, walking accross the yard going around the house.

Mom said in the year of 1989 she talked with one of Ellen Flanneryes girls, at pinecreek church.

Mom said that she was born and raised on pertcreek in 1932.. and left there in 1949

I would say that place in spooked up there. I know I would not walk up through there at night , with or without a light ..
