Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House


Coppell, Texas

In this cemetery, one particularly devilish worshipper of Satan is buried. His headstone, located is the corner of the cemetery is said to be haunted. People attempting to take pictures of it have reported their film being distorted upon development. If one attempts to take pictures anywhere else in the cemetery, however, the pictures come out perfectly.

This sounds really interesting…..but where exactly is the cemetary besides it being in Coppell, and what is the name of the “devil worshiper” so people can find his tombstone.???

The pictures may have been distorted because there might have been a magnetic energy source coming from near that one burial ground.

Charles says:

I don’t think magnetic fields distort pictures, but even if there were a sufficiently strong magnetic field, it would be easy to detect. If magnets distorted pictures, then it would be impossible to get a good picture of a bar magnet or an electromagnet. Also, does this work for all cameras? How about paintings and sculpture?

It’s off of Bethel School Road and Moore I believe, and I think most of the graves had been moved so they could build houses, but there was some historical importance to the part of the cemetary that remains.

Man i would like to know where this place is, i wanna go and see wats really up. i ain’t scared of no ghost…….

Cemetaries should not be haunted if it has been blessed

jeremy says:

December 19, 2006, 12:30 am

well riki, the thing about that is that he was a devil worshiper….you do the math….obviously the blessing does not apply to him

I went there today looking for this headstone. It is not off of Moore and Christi, that is the Bethel Cemetery (historic landmark) and Parish Cemetery (family plot) on Carter Drive and Moore, across the street. I believe it is in Bullock Cemetery, which is at the end of the road behind the old North Park Mobil Homes trailer park. Dallas Appraisal maps confirm it, but there is no way back there that I can find. The entrance is marked “off limits”/”no trespassing”/”stay out”. This is in the NorthWest corner of Denton Tap and Bethel School Road. I looked up the owner of the property, and found it to be the Historic Bullock Cemetery Association, which has an address of 709 S. Coppell Road. I am about to contact them this week to ask for permission to visit the Cemetery.

I HAVE SEEN THE CEMETRY AND I SAY TO You. DO NOT GO THERE. I went a couple of days ago with a buddy and we tried taking a picture with the camera. When we took the picture a loud screaming voice shouted Satan lives and the camera broke.

Although this stuff is really interesting and fun to investigate..i still think you shouldnt mess with it..but if you ever are caught up in a situation where you are facing some kind of evil or satanic entity..then all you really gotta do is, with all your faith, call upon the power of God to protect you and to rebuke whatever this entity is, and whatever it is that you are facing will be banished. I guess we all have to do what we gotta do to satisfy our curiosity..

Leroy says:

June 23, 2007, 8:20 pm

Well… I went there… and all I gatta say about it is that I pissed myself, and not just a little trickle, hard core pant wetting man. I wouldn’t recomend going there, but if you do bring pants you dont care for, or double layer your undies.

devin says:

June 27, 2007, 2:45 pm

is there a site with a map to that place? and what’s the name of that dude. i want to go there.

brandon says:

July 14, 2007, 12:35 pm

I went there last night and found nothing. I even laid on top of the “haunted ” grave and took pics. Heard nothing, saw nothing.

stephanie says:

September 3, 2007, 4:51 pm

Omg!!! I want to go!!! I want to go!!!! Where exactly is this place???? Someone plz tell me!

Jeff says:

I lived in Coppell for years, heard about the cemetary in books and sites like this, but no one I knew heard anything about it. Which cemetary exactly?, there are a few little old ones in Coppell.

tasia says:

October 10, 2007, 9:31 pm

does anyone actually know where and who? I would like to see this cemetary as well..I bet it really is nothing..I think you all are joking around with me..
someone who knows, talk please.

Kelvin says:

April 2, 2008, 5:58 pm

My name is Kelvin, and i was wondering where this cemetery in Coppell, Texas is, so i can visit it.
I would also like to know the name of the devil worshiper so i can find his head-stone.

Please, get back to me.

Thank you very much.

Bekka says:

May 29, 2008, 2:07 am

Ok. Apparently Brian hasnt told any one of us if he got in and if he did what he saw,heard,what happened, etc. so i just want to know the same thing everyone else does.
What cemetary and what is the guys name?
Oh and Jeremy it dosnt matter if the guy wa a devil worshiper or not if there is a blessing on a cemetary then it should NOT be haunted. The power of God is stronger than any evil!

kenzie says:

June 26, 2008, 3:43 pm

look, i have lived in Coppell for twenty years, which is all my life. Brian is speaking of the correct cemetery and there is no such way of getting in…reason, because the legend is true, he was a devilworshiper and his grave is not the only one haunted. some have said and proven the pictures they took were distorted, but thats different for everyone, but because of the MULTIPLE (said to be) haunting in that particular graveyard…no one wanted nor able to get in…if you do your pretty lucky…but please be careful…and the dude that said the camera are a bad lier!!! thats actually not possible. i suggest that if you go, take a bible, even if your not religious…it can help protect you…this man is a demonic spirit now…so dont do or say anything stupid and dont step hard on his gravesite. contact me if you want for more info at…thats my email.

Tasha says:

July 30, 2008, 3:34 pm

every cemetary is haunted, a friend and I went walking in a cemetary. I was cautious not to step on any graves…but my friend was less respectful. I wandered on my own and found myself beside a forest anout twenty five feet away. I heard a man laugh and no one was there! Then, leaves began rustling as if someone were running towards me! I told my friend to get out fast andwe ran. leaves moved and we heard footsteps beind us until we were out of the cemetary. coincidence????
I still believe that it never caught up because I was praying and clutching my cross the whole time.

Brian says:

Hello all,

I apologize for not getting back and posting this sooner. When the Historic Bullock Cemetery Association never returned correspondence in regards to my letter asking for permission to visit the cemetery,I kind of forgot about it. It has been 18 months since my investigation ended. I am going to lookup some more satellite maps to see if there is any newer information. If I can still find the ‘good’ map of this, I will post, but would advise people not to trespass on this private property. As you should all know, in Texas, laws are quite lenient when it comes to protecting private property. I personally do not want to get shot at! However, this mystery intrigues me so…

Brian says:

August 9, 2008, 1:58 pm

Here is one pic that I put together 18 months ago for my own reference.If this does not embed, just follow the link…this is Bullock Cemetery, the same cemetery that kenzie confirmed is the correct one. Also included is the Dallas County Apprasial map showing the surveyed plot for the cemetery…

Brian says:

August 9, 2008, 2:28 pm

OK, I got a better photo now, take a look at this link:

josh says:

September 23, 2008, 6:32 pm

Did you go, Dustin? Brian, are there any fences or gates blocking access to the perimeter?

kari says:

September 25, 2008, 9:35 pm

Ok this is crazy! Every one knows that in every town there is a haunted cemetery. In the town i live in there is supposed to be a glowing grave stone. that is bull. any ways be real about it cemetery’s are a place of peace not places for people to have fun in and try to scare each other.

josh says:

September 26, 2008, 7:39 pm

ok, I went to the Bullock cemetery that Brian spoke of…It’s easy to get in and kind of cool inside. But there is nothing unusual about it and there’s no wierd tombstone with markings on it or anything. Lots of the Bullock family buried there, but it’s very small. Some volunteers restored the foundation of WC Bullock’s (first person who owned the land) tombstone and his wife’s plotis there too. But I saw nothing unusual or strange about the place at all…I even drove around and found Bethel cemetery (where the devil worishiper is “supposedly” buried), but it is only a 1/2 acre piece of land with gates and a lock. There are only two markers inside and they are of young children…so much for the myth about this devil worshiper. There are about 200 people buried in and around the Bethel cemetery, but there are no markers for them-it’s just land with trees and grass, adjacent to houses. A victim of small pox and some people who were lynched are buried in the ground, but the evidence of that is the sign erected near the gate. I was hoping for something more exciting today, but nothing came of my trip…just ordinary, historic graves.

josh says:

September 26, 2008, 7:51 pm

Someone did the work for us and investigated the story…looks like an urban legend.

doesent matter says:

November 18, 2008, 12:20 pm

ya i kinda dont believe it because i looked it up and it said there was only 2 grave stones left and it was of a 1 day old and a 3 yr old little girl and i doubt they worshiped the devil

Austin Troiani says:

i live on bethel school rd.right next to where the cemetery on moore is. no one knew that cemetery was there until they started building the big house on the corner. the gravestones are small and practuically unidentifiable. when they started trenching for the foundation of the house they accidentally hit graves which were eventually moved to continue construction.

Scott says:

April 2, 2009, 12:53 am

yes this is true, the grave yard is chained closed now but if you jump the gate you can get in. it has to be done at night my friends and i took 7 cameras from cell phones, a polroid, up to a high quality cannon, and with every camera we took 7 pics and in every pic the name on the grave stone was distorted. And yes we did take pics of other grave stones and every other grave stone was clear and easy to read. we even took a pic with two grave stones the one of the satin worshiper was distorted and the other one was clear.

Lauren Story says:

My friends and I are hunting for haunted places in Coppell. There is an empty lot with a drive way without a mail box on christi off of bethel school rd… its pretty creepy.. my friends and i went there just the other night and there were quite a few strange noises and movements.. there is no longer a house there – it was demolished. I will also be going to the Bullock Cemetery tomorrow night.. i have been there many times during the day in the past, but never a night time.. and yes, it is hard to get to unless you know the back way – which isn’t easy access. There is also a new cemetery being built off of ruby rd by the trailor park! and does anyone know where the cemetery off of mockingbird is?

Austin says:

June 10, 2009, 11:38 pm

OMG…i went there a couple weeks ago and like it is totally true!I took pictures and got them developed and they were all fuzzy and messed up dudes! Crazy…the other pictures were fine..!!

Charles LaFountain says:

June 17, 2009, 6:11 pm

Tried to go by this place today… had trouble finding it, but pin pointed location with google earth and will try again tomorrow. Did find location of Association that handles the grounds, but no one was there when I tried to check on it. Again.. will try by there tomorrow a little earlier in the day and see if I can get permission to go on the grounds and see the place.

kelly says:

July 2, 2009, 12:30 pm

has anyone ever gotten a confirmation on this place? sounds like tall tale to me.

lauren says:

July 2, 2009, 3:51 pm

haha yes. ive been there and walked by it many times when i was a kid and still know exactly how to get there.. if you want detailed directions i can tell you. my email is

Kevin mote says:

July 8, 2009, 1:44 am

I am the caretaker of the Bullock cemetery and I can tell you that there is absolutely nothing haunted about this place. It’s a peaceful place with about 40 graves ranging from 1869 to 2002. If somebody wants to waste their time, I’d be delighted to escort them onto the site. Also, I’ve never heard of any Satan worshippers being buried there. Somebody is having you on.

Kelly says:

July 8, 2009, 9:03 am

I have yet to find a true haunt! You can almost always find the owner or caretaker that will unveil the truth. i need a real haunt. i am getting old and starting to wonder about my after life. will i haunt this world or go on to the next? i belive in God and belive i will go to heaven when i have payed my debts. i just wonder what will happen when I die. do we stay and repent-or do we simply go to heaven or hell? i’m really not as wierd as this sounds, just curious.

Kevin Mote says:

July 8, 2009, 6:16 pm

By the way, if you decide not to let me escort you onto the property, and decide to go there by yourself, just please have the decency to treat the place with the respect it deserves. Has anybody in this group ever been a Cub Scout? It’s called ‘leave no trace behind.’ It means don’t leave anything, don’t take anything, don’t destroy anything. And please be respectful. Those who were interred there were God-fearing, hard-working people who lived hard and died young. But any and all are welcome as long as they respect where they are. If I catch you there, I’m liable to put a weed-eater in your hand. 😉

Kelly says:

July 9, 2009, 9:03 am

yes, i was an active member of scouts for almost 10 years. and i would never go there with out permission. i don’t plan on going anyway, i don’t belive it’s a true haunt. i was just wondering??? i have an obsession on this subject and fear i’ll never know the truth. and i would help you with the weed wacker if i were there. :)

Kevin says:

July 9, 2009, 2:25 pm

It’s the age-old question. You are not alone. There are answers out there. But even the answers need answers. If you record whispering in an empty room, is that proof of life after death? Not really. It’s exciting and frightening, but it’s really just another mystery. This month’s issue of Scientific American has an article about a new theory that holds that the true nature of the universe is unknowable. Not very reassuring, is it?

You have my permission to visit the Bullock cemetery anytime you want. Soon, homes will be built not 10 feet from the cemetery fence. It’s a done deal. If you visit, you may learn something, but not about ghosts. If you look very closely, you’ll see how precious life is. And you’ll know just how lucky you are to have been born when you were. Many graves are for babies and small childrenâ??some weren’t even yet named. One simply bears the words ‘Our Baby.’ There’s one grave marker for 2 boys (brothers) aged 15 and 18 who both died on the same day. Imagine that for a moment. If you go to a graveyardâ??mine or any otherâ??you’ll see something remarkable if you look closely enough. Guaranteed.

Anna says:

Oh my god, I seriously live like right next to that cemetary and never really thought anything about it…

Keith says:

October 5, 2009, 10:55 am

I would love to visit this site for it’s historic significant’s before it’s gone. Does anyone know how, exactly, how to find it?

Clafoun says:

October 7, 2009, 4:53 pm

I’ve been there.. and it’s not a satanic symbol.. although to the uneducated it would appear as such. It’s actually a symbol for of a society for the wives of masons.. it does have an inverted pentagram at it’s heart. I would attach a photo of it if I could here. The woman in questions name was Mary Evelyn Cozby, born April 7, 1911 and died November 12, 2002… As far as getting to the place, you have to go on foot. If you head east on Denton Tap Road from hwy 121 to just before Bethel School Rd there will be a place you can park just before the intersection on the south west corner. It used to be an old trailer home park.. you can still make out the pads and streets if you look carefully. Back toward the west if you walk across the open field you will find a wide cut trail / road that moves into the woods to the west then curves around south and will lead you to the graveyard. It’s very small.. maybe 30 graves or less.. and her’s is near the front on your left when you walk in the gate. I have photos of the tombstone itself as well as most of the others in the graveyard. I will share the photo to anyone interested.. just post a comment here requesting it with a way to contact you.

Obviously the legend is wrong, as I had no trouble photographing anything in the place. Although I did have one moment while I was there that was a little weird for a moment. My camera’s (Nikon D-50 Digital) auto-focus refused to focus on one of the stones until I turned it off and back on.. it had never done that before.. but it wasn’t the stone in question and I don’t put much stock into the experience.. I wrote it off as a fluke.

Clafoun says:

October 7, 2009, 5:08 pm

Just a side bar to what Kevin said before.. Yes, I have been a boy scout in the past.. and I took my son with me as he also has an interest in the metaphysical.. and while we were there took time to upright a garbage can and pick up the trash that had been scattered by the wind and anything we found lying along the trail. If we as people don’t work to preserve the places we leave behind, what will there be for the next generations after us?

Jusitn says:

October 11, 2009, 2:27 pm

I would just like to ask… if so many of you have been there and taken pictures, why can you not post these pictures or maybe send them by email to those that are interested?

Clafoun says:

October 11, 2009, 7:17 pm

I offered to send mine to anyone that wanted to see them.. just have to post an email I can send the photo’s to.

Justin says:

October 11, 2009, 7:45 pm

alright mine is

Pete says:

It is too dificult to take a picture and upload to a site like tinypic and post a link..?
I think I’m going to have to go there for myself and take a look. You never know if someones trying to cover something up. I am a firm believer in the paranormal. My grand mother was a medium, and so was my mom.

Sheri says:

I live in Coppell and this story is just an urban legend. Here is a link to a paranormal team who actually checked out the cemetary and posted pictures.

Christina says:

April 23, 2012, 11:22 pm

Regarding last comment by Sherri. The paranormal link is for the Bethel Cemetery. The Bullock Cemetery is what everyone is talking about on here. It is located off the corner of Denton Tap and West Bethel School Rd behind the old trailer park. I live close by and plan on going this weekend. I will give a summary of the visit afterwards. I will be taking several cameras.

kbenet says:

May 8, 2012, 10:24 am

I tried to go there this past weekend and they have a rock wall around the block and are building huge houses there. I couldn’t tell if they are building over the cemetery or not. So Sad!!!!
