Tishomingo, Oklahoma Ghost Sightings
My sister-in-law and I came in to Tishomingo about 8 am on a Saturday morning. We got out of my pickup, and immediately the hair stood up on our arms and the back of our necks. Could not see a human being anywhere in downtown, but we could feel eyes on us! We will never set foot in Tishomingo, OK again in our lifetime!.|

While I have never seen a ghost I have observed some things that have made me wonder. I lived in Tishomingo for a short time in the mid 1990s and worked in a nursing facility there. Due to privacy I will not say which or include any names. I have been in the medical field for twenty years now and have worked in many facilities across Oklahoma and in each one you will always find ghost stories, none of which I have ever experienced anything until I came to work in Tish. Before I came to work there, the facility had added a brand new wing, and the staff had told me stories of residents staying in one certain room always complaining about seeing a black dog and hearing it bark. The first time I was assigned to work this wing I took care of an elderly gentleman who frequently would call for someone to hush that dog up and to take it out of his room. Several months later the room was occupied by an elderly woman who would call for someone with the same complaints as the elderly man had. Both described it as a small black dog.
I was told the land this facility sat on was originally owned by an elderly woman. She sold her land to the owners of this facility with the agreement they could build their facility. However, they could not expand in the direction of where her house was until she had passed away. Once she passed they built this new wing right where her house had been, and yes she owned a small black dog. Had I not heard these two residents complain about the same thing several months apart, I would have chuckled up the stories the staff had told me as just rumor. Another odd occurrence that happened in the same facility involved an elderly woman that lived at the very end of one of the wings. While she could speak, very rarely did she. It was difficult for her to do so. There was a woman in the room just before her, and this woman was able to care for herself with minimal help with staff and had no immediate health problems. It was lunch time, and we had handed out plates to those who ate in their rooms. While we waited for them to finish we were at the nurses' station catching up on some paper work when we all heard the woman at the very end of the hall yell out ''I am not going''. Several of us ran down the hall to check on her. She was very upset and kept repeating ''I am not going you tell him. I am not going. '' We tried to explain to her there was no one in the room but us, and she replied ''he is right there. He is right there in the corner. You tell him I am not going. '' After a few minutes she began to calm down. We went about picking up trays from the other residents.
When we came to the room with the woman who could care for herself and had no immediate health problems we found that she had passed. Another story I had been told while working in this facility was that on several occasions people have claimed to see an angel just before one of the residents would pass. And one other story I was told was something about a Native American wise tale about people seeing small children or little people. I cannot recall the meaning of this tale. But again on a different wing in this facility there was an elderly woman who always asked the staff to get the kids out of her room. She said they would jump on her bed and were always running around her room. It was daily, and several times daily she would call for the staff with this complaint. Again I tell you I have never seen a ghost, but the things I have heard and the stories I was told always fit together. And this facility has been the only one this has happened to me in twenty years.
