Saunemin, Illinois Ghost Sightings - PAGE 4
(...continued from the previous page)|
On many different occasions over a period of several years we saw him at about that same spot. At first we just thought he was just a fisherman or hunter that hung out there. Later we saw him just walk through trees and fences as if they were not there! We always slow down near that bridge and look for him but I have not seen him recently .
The last tiem we saw him was about 2009.

After reading numerous reports on the Saunemin giant ghost I did some research. The spot where it's been sighted most often is where 5 mile creek enters the Vermillion river. According to old plat maps that spot borders land once owned by 2 different families the chambers and the hanleys.
It is on the Saunemin side of the border between Saunemin township and Pleasant Ridge township. Based on numerous reports that area has had the Saunemin giant ghost sightings dating back to at least 1839 about the time the land was Homesteaded? It was even mentioned in a book covering the history of Livingston county families that was published in the 1800s.|
They just refered to it as the giant man seen along that creek area. A local report from about 1910 indicates that many Saunemin residents had seen the giant and feared it. A hunting party reported that they were in a field nearby and heard a sudden rush of wind from that spot.
Deer came bounding out of the nearby woods along with lots of birds rabbits etc. They then saw the giant man appear at the edge of the wooded area. He stood there shaking his fist at them then walked over a slight ridge towards the river.
