My sister lives out by Crawford Farm in Falling River. She moved there when she got married in the 60s. There was nobody out there then, and she lived on Country Club Road back when it was a one-lane dirt road. We used to visit her, and I didn't know anything about the ghost stories, but we had dozens of weird things happen to us out there. My husband used to swear there was a man that stood behind her shed who didn't have skin on his face, except for a long grey beard.
When I finally heard the Crawford story at the ghost tour at Wolfbane, I FREAKED OUT. They skinned him to keep his body from resurrecting, and my husband had seen a skinned man for decades out there. We also saw a carriage pulled by horses ride right past us on part of the old road that's raised above the present day road. We both saw it. I pulled out my Kodak to snap a picture, and it was gone in a breath. It scared us both so much.
I loved reading on here about the Native American connection to the spirits. We have hiked to the falls at Falling River, and it is clearly other-worldly there. Absolutely makes sense that all of this stemmed from the original people there and their spirituality.

I was absolutely obsessed with the stories of The Crawford Place when I was in high school in Appomattox. I had the unique opportunity to see Elijah's journal before it went missing back in the 70s. That thing was terrifying. Jonny Williams owned it, and when he died it apparently went to family, but although I've hunted for it for years now, it's apparently MIA.
During my years of obsession, I also was able to interview a member of a local Native American tribe who explained the spiritual history of the area to me. Apparently there was a belief that there were spirits off the Yellow River that governed the forests and wild lands around the area that became Crawford's Farm. These ''gods'' were part of a powerful wolf spirit that this Native American believed was the spirit Elijah summoned.
