Roodhouse, Illinois Ghost Sightings - PAGE 5
(...continued from the previous page)|
My late father was one of the men that carried the decomposing body down the narrow stairs in the old 2-story house across from t-mart. Dad was just home from WW2 and had a full time job on the railroad and a part time job with Mackey funeral home.
My late grandma used to tell a weird story of an old lady that had a face lift and the face lift failed. Grandma said her face was all blotched.
The old lady used to sit on the front porch and she scared all the neighborhood kids. This would have happened between 1910-1920. The story about the old twin men that lived in the old 2-story house out by the Roodhouse rez isn't quite right.
The old men were the Helm twins. One of the twins was Harry. He used to walk into Roodhouse several times a week and go to the IGA store and buy groceries. I remember this well as my dad would sometimes give him a ride home in the winter when it was bitterly cold and in the summer when it was hot.
This was from 1960-1973. Harry and his brother both died in local nursing homes. The story about the rez and the girl drowning has some truth in it. My late mom was known to be an excellent swimmer back in the 1940's.|
She had just finished her shift at the envelope factory when a group of family and friends of the girl that drowned came by and asked her to come out and help search for the body. Mom was a little leery of diving down in deep water and searching for the girl's body.
But she knew the girl's family and agreed to join the search. Mom found the girl tangled at the bottom in weeds. The girl's eyes were wide open and she had a terrified look on her face. Mom had nightmare's for years after this happened.
