MY grand father bought the mansion for my my dad and mother in
1939 a beautiful 1,200 acre plantion. MY1st memories were at two....of the slave cabins built of stone from the castor river......daddy hired men from Zalma to work the farm..tons of
barns and a huge black smith barn where the slaves made the nails
to build the house. I had my own poney and could spen the whole day
with my sister Elizabeth exploring beautiful land .There was even
a whole town left empy by the largest and depest spring with fish
that were albino and huge...at night we would go gigging for giant
frogs you could hear for miles...our favorite place to go was to
the Mcmin cemetery on the hill across from our home..it was so
spooky at dark.......when i was about 9 i slept down stairs by my self and was visited many evenings by Civil War ghosts...they would
tell me not to be a fraid they were there to just get some hay
and water from our well behind the house..i told my parents and
they said you are such a story teller, but they could never give
me an answer why after a heavy rain u could see 100's of horses hoves denting sthe soggy earth..there is a goust in the house it
is my sister Elizabeth who died at 15 in her sleep, the most beautiful girl that ever went to Lutesville HS it was her sophmore
year, she is nothing to be afraid of if you see her as she is a
blond angle....MY father drown himself a the castor river over
her death 2 years later, we found his new car but not his body......I live in Charleston sc now the 3rd oldest city in
America and we are very haunted city...google it..God bless
all of you from the Zalma area....my heart is there in that land
and in the Buchannan 1 room school.

My great grandfather lived on h-highway for years and years. He had a sawmill in the bottoms,there is a civil war graveyard on the land they called the bottoms. His name was Cochran.he lived to be 103 years old. My uncle Ed Jones trained mule for the army. They lived close to union hill cemetery.does any of this sound familiar to you? There is a whole topic about your old home place. It's under haunted places in Zalma or Marble hill I think. I'll repost if I find it again. Thanks

My mother was born in 1922 in a farmhouse right on Castor River in MO. The last of 11 children, my mothers birth apparently "awoke" several ghosts in the farmhouse and as well - on the farmlands. It was an apple orhard my grandaddy bought and hoped to settle in - because of the paranormal on the farm, that did not last long. People in those days did not stay around and wait for Ghost Adventures to show up, they just up and left. About 25 years ago, a family member wrote about the paranormal and from what I have heard, the home has sense been torn down as no one would stay in the home. I am looking for anyone who may have heard about the haunting of the Castor River farmhouse.

Who ownes it now. I drove by to look at the place and got chased down by a weird guy saying he owned the place and accused me of stealing. I was just driving by and stoped to look at how they had realy cleaned the place up. My grandma lived there by the river n a small cabin years ago and as a child told me stories about the place. I was always scared of the place but thought it was beautiful.
