Growing up we used to visit my great aunts all born in the 19th century on the family farm just out of Hutto just off the Taylor highway. My aunts were all old maids having lost their father when they were quite young due to his being shot and killed by a relative over while traveling home one evening.
Their home is a large home two story with numerous bedrooms and large living spaces. Some evenings from time to time a figure has been seen on the landing of the house leading up to the upstairs. Many in the family believe this to be the ghost of my great grandfather still watching over the family and their home still today.

There's an old ghost story in my family that tells of a ghost car. The incident occurred a long time ago, on a farm in this area. According to the tale, the events surrounded a death. My grandfather, who died before I was born, had been trying to get an old car working (hardly an unusual occurrence for the day) when he became ill.
His condition grew steadily worse. Eventually, he took to his bed. I believe he suffered from lung cancer. In those days there wasn't much the family could do except to make my grandfather as comfortable as possible, while keeping a grim vigil at his bedside, awaiting the inevitable.
I've heard several versions of the tale, but they're all in general agreement on the basic details. Shortly before, at the moment of, or moments after my grandfather took his last breath, the lights of the old car he'd been trying to repair came on by themselves and shone brightly through the windows.
