The Eccentric Dr. Joseph McDowell
While working at the Mark Twain Cave in Hannibal, Missouri, years ago, I found the story of Dr. Joseph McDowell of St. Louis to be quite fascinating. His daughter died as a young girl, and he had her body pickled and stored in a cask in the cave.

On a late April night in 1973, Mr. and Mrs. Henry McDaniel of Enfield, Illinois, returned home to find their children, Henry and Lil, excited and frightened because something had been scratching at the door, trying to get into the house.
The Frogmen of Loveland
A businessman traveling through the little town of Loveland, Ohio on a morning in May of 1955, witnessed three humanoid/reptilian creatures by the road. He pulled over and watched, until one of the odd beasts started waving something around in the air that looked like a Fourth-of-July sparkler.

I learned of the oldest paranormal research and investigation club in the world, The Ghost Club, through my research William Butler Yeats, who joined the organization in 1911. Other well-known members have included Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Peter Cushing.

The Greenbrier Ghost
One of the earliest documented cases of domestic violence took place in Greenbrier County, West Virginia in 1897 when Elva Zona Heaster was murdered by her husband. This case is unusual because the victim found a way to ensure that her husband paid the price for his crime.
The Haunted Hermitage
In the town of Hermitage, Tennessee on Rachelís Lane, rests the old home of Andrew Jackson and his wife. The Hermitage plantation house was where Jackson was residing at the time of his death in 1845. Many visitors to the historic house, a museum since 1889, are certain Jackson is still there!
