There's been many sightings of the legendary Grant Samson Whitney of Rogersville AL. The eyewitnesses that have seen this spirit of grant Whitney say he is in a black long sleeve sweater that is rolled up and black pants with work boots. Grant S. Whitney lived in the beautiful 1 story house on deadmans bluff. Which was not on the bluff bt across the road from it. Many people ask the story of grant Whitney so here it goes. Grant S. Whitney lived in a 1 story house across from dead mans bluff. He was one of the happiest men in Rogersville until one day when he was repairing his roof it all went wrong when he slipped and his safety rope broke and he fell to his death when he hit his head on many bolders.Grant Samson Whitney died in 1963 he was 29 years of age and sadly to say he only had two living family members left. These two people were his wife and mother.
    Grant Samson Whitney was laid to rest and buried near his home to keep the memories alive. After he died the locals thought the house was bad luck so they went into construction and tore the house down. When he died his mother could not go through the tragic loss. So she hung her self in the front yard and was cremated instead of buried. To be near her son the locals put her ashes under the new house they built in the same spot as the one grant Whitney fell off of.
Locals say that the house standing in that spot today is a very tall and beautiful house. But the tree his mother hung herself from is still in the front yard. I have drove past there and have seen the spirits of grant Whitney and his mother sitting on the porch. I would have to say that my husband and my mother-in-law are still lingering about his house with their spirits. I miss them both very much bt if you do not believe me about this go and see for yourself this road this house is now on is called bluff drive it is a tall white house and you will know it when you see it because you will see grant and his mother somewhere around the house. Thank you for yo ur time to read this. In loving memory of Grant Samson Whitney 1934-1963.
