I can confirm judy's post. I am from Clinton, Illinois. Just up the road from Maroa. I grew up in Maroa, and have witnessed the ghost horse numerous times. The first time I saw it was about 15 years ago.
I was driving on Main Street leaving a friends house on my way back to Clinton. I had been drinking a few cold ones, but I was still good to drive. I saw something up ahead that I couldn't figure out what it was at first.
It was a white figure that was almost like smoke. As it grew closer it started to resemble a horse. When it finally got next to my truck I was scared, but I just stopped and hoped for it to pass. As it passed I could see the perfect outline of a beautiful white horse.|
When it finally disappeared at the end of the road I couldn't believe what I just saw. I ran out of the truck and looked at two guys outside of the local bar duffy's. I said ''what the hell was that? '' they said '' are you stupid boy? That was a ghost horse.
'' I went and talked to them, and they said they look for it every night after a couple rounds at the bar. They told me that sometimes it shows up and sometimes it doesn't. They also said to never get into the way of that horse or it will take you down with it.
Just like it did to old curly Jefferson back in the 50's. I have seen it at least 8 times since, and it scares me to death every time.
