Hi Folks:

Well I've been flapping my gums about all the great haunted places I visited while on vacation last month, and my original plan was to wait until October, but I thought I would post a little preview here today, to sort of get every one in the mood as Halloween draws ever so closer.

The Moon Point Cemetery (Mistakenly refered to as the Moon Creek Cemetery) is a very old cemetery as you wil see by some of the head stons featured. The main legend is that of a woman who had a son who was the object of constant dissing and ridicule. He lived during the Civil War era. Wanting to escape all the nastiness, he joined the Union Army and was killed. When he was burried, some of his old detractors thought they would come around and desecrate his grave. The guy's mother, however, was not going to have that, so she would spend most of her days at the Moon Point cemetery with a hatchet, protecting the grave of her son. When she died, she, toow as intered at Moon Point, and according to local lor, her ghost still wields a hatchet, and many people have heard a woman's voice saying "Get out!" Get out! Many have claimed to hear her whispering "Get out" right in their ear and have fealt her presence. Unfortunately the stories don't say which grave is that of the woman or her son.

Also perported, are isntances of cars not starting, and fires starting for no appearent reason.

File comment: Here is the main and only entry way into the Moon Point Cemetery. It is said that upon entering Moon Point, cars have often stalled out, and were hard to get started up again. I had no such problem.

That stump is HUGE. It would probably take a lot of work and expense to remove it. There could also be other reasons. But it's one creepy stump none the less.

There are more pictures comming. I went to a few haunted places during my vacation last August, and the best of them all is Bachelors Grove. I will have that posted here before October is out.

Maybe they are trying to drum up business?

I really want to visit this place sometime soon! Do some charcoal rubbings and soak up the atmosphere. Great pics!

Moon point is rather difficult to find, but not impossible. It's sort of out in the middle of "no where," accessable only by dirt roads. It's worth the trip, however.

Bachelor's Grove, like wise is hidden behing all kinds of brush and is only accdssible by a narrow path that use to be a two lane high way, but is a lot easier to find. Both are located in Illinois.
