place. No one had lived in it for a long time. What I am going to say is true as God lets me live. I with my oldest sister Margaret went to look for our brother. There was an old cemetery by the old log house. When we came to the rail fence surrounding the house there was an old man and woman standing in the doorway. The old man wore a slim beard reaching down to his waist, and the old woman was throwing out dish water. I asked them if they had seen my brother Will. They did not answer after many attempts to question them. This scared us and we ran home. No one believed us as the house had been unoccupied for many years, and no one answered the description of these two old people. In later years I learned that before this experience of seeing the two old people in the doorway of the abandoned log-house a tragedy of some sort had occurred there.
