Does anyone know the name of the graveyard or how the family is or ??.

At the end of Onyx Lane in Easley, South Carolina, there is a graveyard that has long been covered by dirt and gravel. All the tombstones have fallen over the years and are buried just beneath the dirt. Unless you knew it one would never know it was there. I lived in a house at the end of the road for a year before I found out about it. The road was paved leading to the end and then turned to a dirt. It was scattered gravel driveway with a larger circle of ground where cars could actually drive around where the graveyard once was. Like I said it was a year before I found out for myself about the little cemetery.

From day one we would hear noises in our basement that would wake us from sleep, usually a loud thud or crash, and it was always at 4:00 am. When I would investigate the basement nothing was found. Nothing turned over. I found no animals running around and nothing disturbed. This in itself was not too strange until one day I spoke with a lady that lived on the other side of the graveyard. I had not made much contact with my neighbors until I found out the story of the graveyard. This is how I found out about it. A friend of mine had come to visit me one day and brought his son-in-law with him. His son-in-law would not come in the house. He told us a story about how as a young boy he would visit his school pal who lived in my house and spend the night there. He said when he was visiting back then he heard of the graveyard and sure enough after scratching up the dirt found the grave markers and tombstones buried. He said they would hear strange noises at night, usually early in the morning around 3 or 4 am. I had not mentioned what I had heard to my friend or his son-in-law. He said the house gave him the creeps and went to sit in the car while my friend visited.

Once I found out about the hidden graveyard the next day I investigated it myself. I took a rake and after some effort found a tombstone. Even after this my story gets stranger. I saw my neighbor unloading groceries and went out to help her. She was a black lady who lived in the house across from us. She lived with her husband who I hardly saw. He worked the third shift and slept days. Their house was down a hill, and from my house you could not actually see their house. As I was helping her I asked her if she knew we were standing on a graveyard. Her car was parked over it. She looked at me with surprise and said ''that explains a lot. '' When I asked her what she meant. This is what she told me. She said that some nights she could not sleep and would often get up to get a drink of water. One night around 4 am she said she heard growling and noises coming from her driveway. She went to her front porch and looked up the hill but could not see anything. So she started climbing the steps leading up the hill to the driveway and was shocked at what she saw. Sitting in an almost perfect circle around where I showed her the graveyard was 10 to 12 dogs all staring at the area where the hidden cemetery was. At the time she did not know the graveyard was there. The dogs were growling at some unseen thing. A few were just whimpering. She tried to shoe the dogs away, but they all just ignored her. She returned to her house and did not sleep the rest of the night. She said she was not scared but just had a strange feeling about the dogs. She went on to tell me more.
