Just left the ghost tour on the Crawford Farm tonight (10/25/2015. ) It was epic. Beyond epic because we grew up on these stories. My great granddad was the Mr. Thomas. They mention who built the Thomas Mill Pond right by Elijah Crawford's farm. He and Elijah got into a big argument because Crawford went in with my great Grandpa financially, to help build the mill, and sadly great grandpa wanted to use slaves to build. The miss and Elijah didn't like slavery at all.
My grandpa used to say that his dad, great grandpa Thomas, would tell them that when the storm that destroyed the mill was happening, great grandpa went down to check. He saw Elijah Crawford looking like he was back to being around 30 years old. He was perched on that mill looking up at the sky. This was 7 or 8 years after Crawford died.
Great grandpa Thomas said the mill burst apart right after that. That wasn't on the tour, but I hope they add it. I always was scared by that growing up. But it's great to see this story on here, and I'd love to see more about Crawford Farm and other Appomattox ghosts.

Comment by Jim: That tour was amazing! We did it the past two years and it's so cool to hear that someone you were related to was involved in Elijah's stories. Sad that any of our ancestors were pro-slavery but I guess it's a little better than being a descendant of a voodoo practicing psycho murdering Crawford.
So chin up haha.

Crawford Farm is one of the scariest most haunted places I've been. It is right down the road from me too!! One of my friends went over to one of the abandoned houses at night with his sister and her boyfriend and they walked in a room and the door suddenly locked on them.
