David Lang Disappearance
"On September 23, 1880, David Lang was crossing a field near his home in Sumner County, Tennessee. His wife and two children were watching their
father walk across the field. David’s brother-in-law and a local attorney were approaching the home in a horse-drawn buggy. Suddenly, Mrs. Lang
sprang from her seat screaming in terror and the two approaching visitors gasped in disbelief. David Lang had just vanished before their eyes.
The disappearance of David Lang caused quite a stir in the local community. At the spot where David disappeared there was a 15 foot circle. The circle
continued to mark the spot where the vanishing took place for years afterwards. Nothing would grow there and animals and insects avoided it. Once, the
children ventured into the center of the circle and claimed to hear their father’s voice echoing from another dimension.
Tall Tale Theories
Several theories abound as to what really happened to David Lang. Most interesting are theories that the whole incident is a fable, passed down from
generation to generation, until it grew into the tale we know today. Most of the fable theories are probably based upon earlier articles in FATE and
Some believe that a similar incident occurred in July 1854 at a plantation near Selma, Alabama. A man named Orion Williamson disappeared in a manner
similar to David Lang (dead grass circles, voices from nowhere, etc.)."
I thought this was some interesting stuff and wondered if anyone else had any info on these incidents or similar incidents. It appears they could be
abductions or mad to look like abductions?
