Grandma's Ghostly Tale

Kate from Ohio sent along this tale that her grandmother told her about her own ghostly encounter years ago in Alabama:

Jason,

Hi my name is Kate and I'm from Ohio, but I have a story from Alabama to tell you. My grandma told me this:

I was staying with your father's cousin Ruthie and she had a cat called
Boo. Well, Boo liked to hang out in Ruthie's closet. She said I could pet him while she got ready for dinner. I went to the closet to say hi to Boo and when I did I felt someone tap me. I turned around and there was this little boy dressed in a little shirt and short pants. I turned to ask Ruthie about him, but when I turned back he was gone.

I later found out that a young boy by the name of Samuel Morriss Gregory had lived in that house about 80 years before Ruthie. He was 4 when one day he went outside and played in a pond. Well, the pond led to the river and he was swept away and later found. When he was found, his body was bloody and torn, and he was wearing a little shirt and short pants.

Hope you liked the story, Jason.

Kate

I'm still shivering, Kate! Thank you and please thank your grandmother for sharing!
