Inside this white house, adjacent to the railroad tracks, a rocking chair is said to rock back and forth on its own in an upstairs corner. Footsteps have also been heard on the stairs.

ok my grandfather used to love to tell stories when I was young and I just used to go along with them letting him have his fun sometimes it would scare me cause I thought so to but I was young he passed away dec.28 and that weekend I spent in Montgomery with I found out the truth :: He told me that the houses in our neighborhood was built on top of a cemetry that was true My grandmother and mom got dog after the two oldest kids moved out(my aunt then my uncle duh Em) Anyway they got this little thing of a dog and some way or another came up with the name Mr.French (don’t ask me why I wasn’t alive) and that dog hated my grandfather they were mean to each other for a long time as happens to everyone and everything the dog died well they buried it… in the backyard! Well shortly after Mr.French died you could hear the dog cruzin down the hallway and the master bedroom door(see Mr.French would sleep at the foot of the bed until my grandfather would come back from one of his trips and kick him out) but everyone in the house could hear it at night but the only one who seemed to mind the nightly routine be carried on was him! So often in the mornings my mother and grandmother would pick at him seeing as how he had a lousy night saying things like,”It sounded like Mr.French was running the halls all night!” or “Nelson, I told you not to kick that dog all the time! He’s coming back to get you now” But the truth is long after the dog went you could hear him run the hall push the door open with his paws and then shortly after come out like he was being kicked out all over again and then run the halls for awhile. Call it weird or lame don’t matter cause I know now that it’s true it no longer happens in the house but unless Nelson(my grandfather) said his sorries then I guess that they’ll be carrying this on somewhere else!!!

What cemetery was the neighborhood built upon? Was it a small family cemetery? Or was it a vast, town/local/church cemetery?

This is really of interest to me since I recently bought a white house adjacent to the railroad tracks. I know very little about the house I bought. It is two story built in 1910. If anyone could give me any more info please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org

So, what’s the story behind this rocking chair?
August 11, 2006, 4:45 pm
I am from Parrish, and I have never heard this story. However, I have often heard a story about a woman throwing her three children over the bridge, and you can hear them playing at night. This bridge is on the road from Dora to Cordova right before you get to the stop sign, if you turn left you can go towards Parrish or if you turn right you will be going towards 78 or Sipsey.

Was there mention of railraod tracks nearby?
That could be the answer to the mysterious rocking

I am from Jasper, Al and I have never heard about the rocker. It does not sound that scary to me. What sounds scary to me is Tear Drop in Carbon Hill. It is in the shape of a tear drop and if you drive around it (i think 3 times) and get out of your vehicle and stand at this tree someone will come up and grab you. There is this other place in Jasper that is very scary. It is kinda in West Jasper at an old train trussell. The story is that this lady was running from someone on the train tracks and sliped and fell from them. If you go to that spot at the time she fell you can her her screaming and then you see her fall. * IF ANYONE KNOWS THE REST OF THE STORY PLEASE CORRECT ME! *

They Probably just put stiff tp make things look real but are not. They are just trying to make money off of us!

They Probably just make stuff up to try and make people come and see it. They might put lights for the foot steps and have the rocking chairs atomatic. so ya dont believe everything you hear!

Dog’s don’t have souls, therefore when dogs die, as much as I don’t like it, they just die…that’s it, good bye to the dog…they do not turn into ghosts.

Is this true? I’m very interested in this type of stuff. Ineed to go there if it is.
