In Copake about two Miles below the Village of Hillsdale there was thirty or forty years ago an old House where a tavern had been kept. One John Shafer kept a tavern there before this time and finally the Plano began to have an uncanny reputation. An old Man named Vandeusen was passing the House one night when he saw a Black nondescript headless animal go from the House about too feet to an old Well where it disappeared. His horse was terribly frightened and came near throwing his a Young lady who taught school in the District and boarded around staid there a couple of Days but could not control her nerves any longer. There was a heavy door that Lead into her bed room which she locked and bolted but after she had retired she heard footsteps and the door would Fly open. She heard clanking of chains Ana noises like the falling of clods upon a coffin. She told her hostess but the latter insisted that it must be her imagination old Well was filled up one and another one was dug. The old House has been torn for Many years and a new farm House occupies the site. Since the War there have been no Well authenticated ghost stories. But in the old times Many an old in Anan d Young one too for that matter who had occasion to go from Hillsdale to Copake after dark took the West Road and gave that spot the goby. At one time that place stood higher than any one of a half dozen in that Vicinity in the Folk lore. It had its Story of a disappearing peddle which used to be ascribed As a reason in Many cases. But who he was and when he disappeared there is probably no one living that can today Tell except from unreliable hearsay. A a % but the summer away smart ghosts on the track. From the Atlanta Constitution.

But i can to get him out of my memory. It happened on the old Brunswick and Western Railroad. I had taken a Young Man a tramp on the engine with me. He was a Northern Man who had been South for his health and had got broke in Florida. He was going Home to die he said and asked me to give him a lift. I was sorry for him and granted his request with pleasure. A the fellow had consumption and the jolting of the engine resulted in a Haemorrhage. I Wasny to noticing the m u when i heard a shriek and then a out of the cab he tumbled and then under the engine i heard the wheels pass Over him and grind his Bones to powder a after that whenever we would reach that snot i seemed to hear a shriek and then the grinding of the wheels on human Bones. I dispel the illusion to save my life on of e occasion the fireman swore that he saw the Man picking up his Bones along the track but of course there was nothing in that. But for six years afterwards an Long As i remained on the Road i imagined i could hear the shriek and feel the in glue jump when we got to that place.
