Fairy Follies

Fairy Follies

When I moved into the Dormitory of West Virginia State College, I expected to find lots of new friends. While I did find those, I also acquired a pesky little fairy (don't let me fool you, I love the little booger). The story starts like this: Our friend who lived...
What The Heck Was That?

What The Heck Was That?

Every year my boyfriend Tad goes squirrel hunting the first few days of the season in Ritchie County. I always meet him there for the weekend. His best friend Joe had a farm on top of Oil Ridge. Joe has passed on, but his son still allows Tad to...
Demon Creature

Demon Creature

My brother and my father have seen a creature in the counties to the south of Charleston, which is best described as a "demon creature". I have never seen it, and I was having trouble believing the stories until I saw a story on The Discovery Channel about a...
What Followed Me?

What Followed Me?

In the 1950's I often went to my relative's in Wirt County to visit on the week-ends. The procedure was to drop them a post-card early in the week saying I would take the Greyhound bus to the stop where they picked me up. I did exactly that one week...

Ellis Sparr, his wife and six children, lived about six miles west of Sweet Springs, Monroe County, West Virginia on what is now known as State Route 3. It was in the 1880's and Sparr had the reputation of neglecting his family because he was addicted to "Demon Rum." Being...

After fighting in World War II, my father returned to his family's farm located just outside the town of Richwood in Nicholas County, near the Monongahela National Forest.

Logan Bigfoot Seen

Logan Bigfoot Seen

I had walked down to the game room about five minutes below my house (which is on a hill up against a mountain). Around 11-11:30pm, as I started walking back home, I heard some kind of a loud noise like a woman screaming. I spotted something on the mountain...
Horrific Screams!

Horrific Screams!

In early spring of 2008 Beau and I decided to buy new camping gear. We were so happy to put winter behind us and looked forward to enjoying Mother Nature once again. Beau was anxious to camp, yet the nights were still very chilly, and I remained a quite hesitant....
White Beast

White Beast

My husband and I were taking a drive one night down Route 35 going toward Winfield. We had just gotten to where there were no lights or houses around. I was looking out my window trying not to be scared of what I might see. Joe (my husband) had said...
The Hello Thing

The Hello Thing

This is the same White Beast that others have talked. It screams like a woman and has been known to hurt people. This creature will mostly warn you when there is going to be a death, but sometimes I think it gets angry with people! One incident where this...
Another White Beast Encounter

Another White Beast Encounter

I've had two encounters with The White Beast. Both occurred around or near my best friend's house in New Cumberland, West Virginia. I used to spend more time there than at my own home. His dad owned about three acres of land, but only about three-quarters of an acre...
