When I was a little girl, probably 6 or 7, I went to spend the night with my best friend at that time. We were little, so we went to bed around 10, like always, and I woke up probably around 2 or 3 in the morning, and I saw a headless woman standing in the doorway looking down at us. Like I said, we were little. I just thought it was her Mom, because she had dark hair, and since it was dark you just couldn't see her head. I asked her Mom then next morning if that was her, and she said no.
I told my Dad about it when I got older. He said that when they first moved to our house he would walk to the Transport Company for work like at 2 or 3 in the morning (this was in the 50s, and you didn't have to worry about doing that) depending on when he had to deliver his load(s). He said that even though there was no electricity turned on at that house, he would see a light bulb burning almost every night. I never spent the night at her house (or anyone else's until I was a teenager. Then I only spent the night at my sister's house or my best friend's house.

We own a 365-acre farm. On that farm we have a 145-year-old house (the oldest in Amarillo. ) It has been passed down from generation to generation. It becomes quite popular around Halloween time. One late night in October me and my dad were out tending to our live stock when he tapped me on the shoulder and told me to look up at the old house. In the top story window we saw a woman wearing a fancy dress. She noticed us looking at her, so she turned and walked away.
The next day I asked my grandfather if he knew anything about it. He said it was the ghost of one of our relatives who had killed herself after the loss of her son during the Civil War. My grandfather told me to never ever go into the house, because she is known to torment those resembling her son by locking them in the house.

Comment by Jennifer: Would you guys let anyone come and investigate?.
Comment by Ljj: That's crazy! Wonder what year this tale was written? Considering Amarillo was founded in 1887 to have a house that's 145 years old would mean this article was written in the year 2032. I must be confused!!! Lol.
