Another afternoon I had laid down for just a minute only to be bothered by someone tugging at my toe. I thought it was one of the kids. I opened my eyes to see an old man standing at the foot of my bed holding his hand out to me.

Comment by Ellie: My grandmother visited us from Mexico City on our way back from the Fresno airport, we were taking the back roads and we started seeing these fire balls taking off from the fields. We kind of all ignored them for a bit till my grandma said wow you guys really need to be careful with all the witches in the area.
I guess were she's from witch folklore mentions witches turning in to the fire balls as a way of transporting... To this day we live out towards Seville and I see them I just drive a bit faster and don't look back...

Our families farm spans many acres in the Venice hill area including the former settlement known as ''woodville''. Curious of the paranormal activity we have been experiencing I did some research and found a little history on the property in which we are living. It reads as follows: ''the Woodville massacre'' the first attempt at permanent settlement in this vicinity was made by a man named John wood on the south bank of the kaweah River at a point east of the present city of Visalia on the property known subsequently and up to the present time as the goad ranch. Wood with a party of stalwart men different authorities giving the number as fourteen fifteen and seventeen supplied with saddle and pack animals some arms and implements for building came from the Mariposa late in the 1850 arriving on the banks of the kaweah River about December 1st.There near the south end of the bridge built by Dr. Thomas Payne and near the site later occupied by J. C. Goad residence the first permanent habitation was built.
This was a log cabin twelve feet wide and fourteen feet long constructed of oak logs with a roof of split oak shakes. The winter was mild and pleasant and the work of the building and settling progressed without interruption until toward spring when a band of Indians under the leadership of Francisco believed to be a renegade from the ranchos on the coast who had collected a number of the kaweahs into his following ordered that the white men leave that section of the country within ten days giving them the alternative of death if they remained.
