We lived next to the grocery store and was told when we moved in that it had been the home of Jesse James girlfriend and that he had visited. I thought it was all nonsense... Then after being in the home awhile, the usual settling of stairs would actually sound like someone walking up and down them.
One day my daughter who was 4-5 at the time came down slowly after playing in her walk-in closet. She was quiet and looked dazed. She said, dad I just saw a hand and arm with a long black glove on reach around the closet door....
She knew nothing of the rumors or how we felt and that was just one of many things to have occurred.

Comment by Zechariah: I'm inclined to say this story of Jesse James is a hoax. Same exact story is told of a barn south of the Highland High School. Jesse James and crew supposedly stayed a few nights in this barn and carved their names into a hardwood beam. I personally inspected the barn and carvings. The carvings are old, but you can plainly see where someone (probably a young boy with dreams of really meeting Jesse James) messed up on the dates and spelling of said crew. The spelling is a minor thing compared to the date which would have been after Jesse was killed. Fun stories though ! Zechariah.
