My father told me of a bizarre happening at Mt. Olive cemetery in Johnston SC when he was a boy. At the time his friends were very shaken over their visits to the cemetery at night. They claimed that a certain stone angel who held a bowl in her hand would cause any coins placed in it to vanish.|
My father out of curiosity rode his bike there at night alone without telling anyone as to keep his possible experience tainted in case it was a hoax. He approached
the angel and dropped several coins in the bowl.|
He turned away and took a few steps then looked back at the angel. Her bowl was glowing a bright luminous
purple. He watched until the light faded then approached the bowl again and peered down. His coins were gone.|
I've been to visit this cemetery several times. There are 2 stone angels. One is larger and her hands are cupped to form a bowl. There is a smaller one who's hands are broken which could have held an actual bowl.
My father believes his encounter was with the smaller one, but time has maddened it. Hard to tell for certain.
