In the early afternoon in Northern California
of Friday, October 20, 1967.
Robert “‘Bob” Gimlin
were riding generally northeast (upstream) on horseback along the east bank of Bluff Creek. At sometime between 1:15 and 1:40 PM, they “came to an overturned tree with a large root system at a turn in the creek, almost as high as a room.” When they rounded it, “there was a logjam—a ‘crow’s nest’—left over from the flood of ’64,” and then they spotted the figure behind it nearly simultaneously. It was either “crouching beside the creek to their left” or “standing” there, on the opposite bank. Gimlin later described himself as in a mild state of shock after first seeing the figure. Patterson
had estimate the creature to about seven and one-half feet.
The film shows what Patterson and Gimlin claimed was a large, hairy, bipedal, apelike figure with short, “black hair”
covering it’s body.
The figure in the Patterson–Gimlin film generally matches the descriptions of Bigfoot
Stocky’s Pizza in Haughton, LA has been the recent site of multiple unexplained phenomena.
Montana, USA / 1977
The ghost of Chloe, “hanging” around, harmlessly haunting tourists at The Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana. General Bradford (builder of The Myrtles) had a fourteen-year-old daughter, who married Judge Clarke Woodruff. During his days as master of The Myrtles, Woodruff took one of the plantation slaves named “Chloe” as a mistress. He moved her up to the house to make their arrangement more convenient, under the guise of having her care for the Woodruff children. Chloe took advantage of this situation, however. To gain power, she began to eavesdrop on the coversations of Judge Woodruff and his guests. Although he warned her against this practice many times, she was caught on one occasion when the Judge had several influential friends in the gentlemen’s parlor. He had to punish her to save face, so he had her left ear cut off, and she was banned from the main house and returned to more harsh work elsewhere on the plantation. From that point on, she wore a handkerchief wrapped around her head to hide the defect.
Chloe reportedly longed for the comfortable work caring for the kids, and soon hatched a plan to return her to the former position. Woodruff’s nine-year-old daughter was having a birthday party, and Chloe volunteered to make the cake… but she laced the cake with a potion brewed from Oleander leaves. Her plan was that when the children got sick, she would treat them with an herbal cure and appear to have miraculusly cured them. She must have misjudged the dosage, though, because two of the children and Mrs. Woodruff died from eating the poisoned cake.
The Judge had been away, so he returned home to find that he was a widower. As the slaves were questioned, those who knew about Chloe’s dark plan turned on her. When Judge Woodruff learned what had happened, Chloe was hung from one of the plantation trees. When she was dead, her body was cut down, her pockets and clothes stuffed with rocks, and her body dropped into the river.
Not long after that, stories of Chloe’s presence in the house began to circulate among the staff and family. Today, the housekeepers lock the house up at night, only to return the next morning to find chairs in the parlor rearranged, and other furniture moved out of place. During tours, as ladies pass through the doorway to the gentleman’s parlor where Chloe was caught eavesdropping, an earring is sometimes snatched by an unseen hand. The staff regularly finds earrings in the oddest places, and write it off to the fact that Chloe loves earrings, but only needs to take one, since she only has one ear.
A young couple caught footage of what they believe could be the ghost of a female servant at a palace where it is believed she died in a fire in the 18th century. Danielle Hyde, 21, and Savanna Brown, 23, visited Tryon Palace in North Carolina – Filmed the event on SnapChat. (Via youtube)
So… this took awhile because I wanted to get a good story and picture. I tried not to go too common…
