I used to live in Cottonwood Grove on 14th Street right by Murphy / Plano Line by the train tracks. I used to be woken at 2 am with the sound of children laughing and playing right outside my bedroom window. When I would check there was no one out there. My daughter almost who was a year old at the time would talk to someone and laugh with them in her room when she was left in her crib alone. I would hear her over the monitor.
a little girl standing in my kitchen with a white Sunday dress on like little girls from the 1800s. When I turned to call my husband she disappeared.
When we moved out of the place the spirits were apparently mad at us because they kept slamming the door shut every time we would walk out with boxes. There was no wind blowing that day either. I always wondered what was out there before this property belonged to the current owners, especially because it seemed haunted by a lot of little kids.|

Comment by Adam: There is a book about Plano history entitled ''Plano the Early Years'' it has great stories about the history of our city and area. I have seen visions of the stories while reading the book. The Rowlett Creek system of streams are spring fed and always have water no matter how hot and dry the weather.
Even during this drought there is still water in the stream. All this to say many people lived near this creek both settlers and Native Americans because there was water to drink. Needless to say the land around the creeks have a long history of human habitation.
There was a family from the Georgia / Alabama border named bogess who settled near your area after the Civil War. They also built a home in Plano to be closer to church school and the town's social life.
Their original homestead by Rowlett Creek and 14th Street burned down. However no one died in the fire. The Bogess family built a new home between the creek and Plano and lived there for 75 to 80 years.
Mr. Bogess served as a bailiff for the county and died due to stress from the county commissioner stealing tax money paid to government funds. The tragedy greatly embarrassed Mr. Bogess as he was a mann of integrity serving a crook.
He felt betrayed and angry. His death was a great loss for his family.
