This reminds me of something I heard growing up out in the country here in NY State. There was this area that everyone called 'Spook Woods' where
witches would dance naked around a fire they'd start while casting spells. Pre-revolution stuff. Game became scarce in the area and hunters would be
afraid of being out in the woods even during the daytime. Strange sounds are heard and weird animal tracks are still found in this area even today in
the 21st Century.
In the early 1820's, a country doctor and his family took in a strange woman after they found two hunters and their horses mutilated. Shortly
afterwards, the daughter's health started failing. At a loss as to why his daughter was dying, the Dr. turned to a local sheriff and a local preacher
who performed several religious rites to bless the daughter and the house. The strange woman became violent and had to be physically restrained. They
took her away and then proceeded to finish the religious rites, whereupon the daughters health got better.
