Well this is about the hauntings of north side (Thomaston) I know all this because I'm writing small paper book on this all that I'm telling you here is true. Done all the research. I lived in this area all my life. On Jeff Davis Road there is an old plantation house. That was my old house. Ok the house we are talking about is Dr. Hannah's old plantation house. The corn mill in front of it on the curve had been built by slaves, including the old wall at 10 mile creek all the fields that were planted. And if you did not know, the railroad used to run parallel to old Alabama Road during the 1800s. The old Alabama Road is also the connection road to the famous trail of tears. Lots of deaths there with Indians after the white man who took the land. And also when you turn on old Alabama Road, and if you turn into the trailer Park, look to your right the old huge oak tree to the edge of the brush near the road that was the county hanging tree.
The old single jail is located on Jeff Davis Road above the bridge still standing today. This was made due to town being several miles away. They could lock up the bad until the sheriff picked them up. On that side of town that was the tree the county Marshals would use. Over 300 hangings were done there, very scary area. Lots of bad people were hanged there and the not so guilty. Also the stage coach area was in front of this house lot of history. Well, in the 1860s Dr. Hannah was the local doctor. He was on the frontage road where the stage coach house was above about 1mile on the left (old Salters house. ) If there were injured near death on the stage coach or on horse the old doctor would help, only if you were csa (confederates. ) Remember this was during the Civil War not Union (Yankees. ) Well you have to remember 2 hours south of there was the worst camp in history, and 90% of the time if you were captured, you were going south Anderonville GA. The old doctor had his own ways of taking care of them. He would tell the stage coach rider that he would take care of the wounded, and so he did. The attic in this place is like the width of the whole house huge. He would take them and put them in the attic and let them starve to death, no water no food. There are still to this day in the attic Union soldiers names embedded in the wood where they wrote their names with their fingernails or teeth that fell out. There were also the dates they were there, lots of them.
Remember I told you about the corn mill? Well he had slaves and workers make that mill. Several people died making it. Now with the wall at 10 mile creek there were over 25 slaves that lost their lives there due to almost finishing the wall and it fell on all 25 of them and crushed them to death. Neighbors state that you can still here the slaves screaming when the wall fell. Now back to the doctor. He had a son, a wife, and over 40 slaves. One day he just lost it and went coo coo. He went to the barn and got an axe and a lot of rope. He went to the house first, cracked his wife Maggie with the axe handle. He then hanged the wife in the dining room to her death. He walked outside, took some rope, and went to the well on the left side of the house still standing today. He took his son and hanged him from the well.
Remember me telling you that I lived in the house across from the fire dept. Where the old hanging tree was. Well the doc went to the fields and brought back 3 slaves and beat them almost to death and hanged all three on this tree. He hanged all three and wrote 6. 6. 6. On each forehead. Well the neighbor across the way came to see the family. As he looked into the windows there is the doctor's wife hanging there from the ceiling. He went to the barn and noticed that they were 5 dead slaves by the brush of the woods and few were heads off. And so the good neighbor went for the Sheriff and his Deputy. They went to the plantation and saw what had happened, and the doctor was missing. There was no sign of him. They found all the slaves dead, his wife, the son, the slaves in the tree, and the over 15 Union solders bodies in the attic.
They did finally find the doctor. He was out of his head he said he never remembered doing these things. They took him to the single jail for a day or two, court Marshaled him, took to the court house square and hanged him in front of hundreds of people. When I lived in that house we always saw things and little black kids/and hear sounds near the old plantation and that tree got hit by lighting one night I was there, spooky. Well after the old doc. Had died off and everyone else do you believe over 5 sets of families have lived there, and no one seems to stay one family had a massacre in there. They killed each other and the next family she winded up killing herself after being sent off. The last people that lived there was a preacher, and he told my mother that strange things go on in that house. They hear things all night. On August night during a full moon you can see this ghostly figure of a lady floating across that big porch screaming ''help help. I'm looking for my son. '' Where I lived I thought I saw it, but it makes me nervous just thinking about it now, but I turned away one day and thought I saw someone swinging from that tree.
We went to the house one day after telling my new wife about the house. We just bought new batteries for the camera. We went to the front of the house, and the camera died would not come on at all. We went back toward my house, and the batteries started working again. This is an example of what people say about this is the devils playground. Well that's it there.
