Saunemin, Illinois Ghost Sightings - PAGE 5
(...continued from the previous page)|
When the hunters went to the top of the ridge and looked for him he was gone. The armed group searched the area but could not locate him. Supposedly an article from the Saunemin paper (in the 1960s? ) had several reports of sightings over the years.

About 40 years ago I knew the guy that farmed area by the ''u'' shaped in the Vermillion River near where 5 mile creek enters it. It was on the border between Pleasant Ridge township and Saunemin township.
We found an area on top of the ridge above the river where the soil had been freshly dug up. It was a large rectangle that was roughly the shape that a grave would be. We dug into it a little but found nothing but dirt.|
There seemed to be an area trailing in the grass towards this spot. We wondered if someone had buried something there or dug something up there and removed it? We hid nearby periodically to see if anyone returned.|
On several occasions we saw the Saunemin giant ghost-a towering shadowy figure that seemed to walk up and down on the banks of 5 mile creek and the river. It never actually went to the dug up spot but was along the nearby streambank.
Many people in the town of Saunemin have seen the ghost over the years. I think there was a write up about it in a local paper maybe 40 years ago?.
