Unfortunately both he and my father has passed away where I could try to get more info on the actually dates but would have been in the 1930s or 40s.

If you want to see ghosts go to the cemetery on Lamont. I go there sometimes to visit graves of loved ones that have passed on. I don't like to go alone because I am scared of ghosts. Every time I go I feel cold breezes even on hot summer days.
And I hear sounds like footsteps, but when I turn around no one's there. It is really scary there. I go because I want to visit the graves but I always try to get someone to go with me. When I'm not alone there are fewer signs of ghosts but there still are signs.|
Every day is a haunted day at that cemetery.|

Comment by Marion: I grew up on Lamont St and my grandparents house was next door. I remember my father telling me a story of when he was young about him and his nephew I believe was walking home one night from a movie downtown at the Capri Theatre where the JC Transit Buses is now located and they went through that cemetery as a shortcut to Whitney St to get to Lamont.
But they heard footsteps behind them and then something or someone rose up from behind one of the headstones. He said they thought it was a prank by some of their friends but also he said that no one ever confessed up to it and never knew who or what it was.
I hadn't thought about that in years and I was maybe 8 when he told me about it and I am now 48 and he was I guess 46 then so this would go back about to sometime of 80 years ago.
Comment by kjs paranormal: Very interested in area/story. Have been wanting to investigate that St. Where would the best place to go and give me a building close to it to find easier if possible. Didn't no of a graveyard either?? Love paranormal and from Carter co. TN.
