Witches, ghosts, hauntings, creatures, and more!
Reverend George Thrasher lived less than 100 miles from the Moon household, in Botetourt County. His story is occasionally set in Buchanan County, but fewer sources substantiate it.
The situation with John Gamble did not bode well for West Virginia cases that alleged paranormal involvement. Oddly enough, there was an unspoken change decades later during the trial of a man named Trout Shue.
The Moon Ghost is a name given to a series of bizarre incidents that took place in the home of Schulyer Moon, of Fluvanna County. The house was once an estate called “Church Hill,” around 12 miles from Charlottesville.
There was once a haunted house in the Big Laurel section of Wise County, Virginia. No one lived there for any length of time, until a traveling preacher stayed one night and unraveled the mystery.
A large rock once sat beside the road going between Wise and Norton, near the small coal town Esserville, Virginia. The rock was believed to have its own banshee that foretold death.
