from an oak tree in the front yard.
Ever since then one can hear old mean man Mathis head roll down the stairs. The blood stain at the foot of the stairs will NOT clean up, and the old iron gates to the property will not stay shut even when pad locked. Nothing but tragedy has followed anyone who lived there thereafter. Mathis is buried on the property under a slab and lightning is alleged to hit the slab about once a year.
of this through genealogy study in the early 1990s. Mathis may have been the brother to my great great-grandmother. I will NEVER go near the place for
fear of my own life. I think Hargis house (if still there) is on the old road from Natchitoches to Winnfield.|

Comment by Bob: I see Craig Fletcher that you plagiarized most of my story about Hargis house on the ghostsofamerica.com web site. Found you on something called ''medium''. Yes, I may have had some of the details wrong like the slave was actually hung in the courthouse square. Ray Fletcher had marital problems and died in the road in front of the house around 1977. He tried to modernize the old house. Spirits don't like that. It may have been the spirit of one John A. Mathis. The builder. Be careful Craig. The place is cursed being over confident about spirits may bring you great harm.
Comment by Bob: Was it you Craig or your brother who almost died as a child after falling off the roof after playing with the lightning rod? That slave woman (Hattie Leroux?) Was the one into ''Hoodoo'' and put on the Hex after her man was executed! Don't say the place is NOT cursed!.
