I'll see if i can do some digging, add some links. i LOVE researching about the bell witch! Quite literally
The book, is also known as the 'red
book'. The bell witch swore to return in someting like 50 years, and she did..john bell jr. He and 'her' had converstaions, she told him of hte
future, things to come. The red book is not easy to find at all, but i remember finding a website few years ago, that had some detailed info about
thier converstaions. She swore to return every century basically, but eventually she stopped.
Andrew Jackson himself, was reported to be helping john bell, John bell had a small army with him, as he was still a general. It was reported, him
and his troops defied the bell witch outside. They heard a womans laughter going through the trees, and the horsebuggy attached to horese literally
would not budge, as she laughed. Andrew jackson was scared and in awe, and its said he wrote about this incident, when he became president, in the
The bell witch was racist. Thier was an incident, where one of john bells slaves(yes he was a slaveowner: ( ) showed up late. He was angry. The
bell witch's voice materialized, and reffering to john as 'ol' jack. Thats what she called john bell...ol' jack. She siad something along the
lines of well make sure this (racist term) is never late again. In front of both of them, a big stick levitated and continued to whip and beat the
slaves back until his back bled..soemthing like 40 lashes was administered by her.
The slaves on the property, also had their own kinda book, reporting and talking about weird animals, racist womans voice in the air in thier
rooms. so the bell with, wa well known. In fact, local people would often come to johns huose, to hear her voice. They had thought, it was a woman
neighbor, Kate, if i remember correctly. Johnathan had made a bartering business deal with her, and he didnt repay her. It was said, according to
legend, Kate was so infuriated by this, after the court session, she cursed his daughter, betsy.
But, this sounding like poltergiest activity...betsy was pretty much at an age, when puebrty starts, and thas when poltergeists usualy show
up..thiers a connection between girls, and peubrty. If yuo read about poltergiest activity, its all involving girls and puebrty. Neverr really a
Some seem to think, the bell witch has been around for many years before the incident..theirs a river near adams tennessee thier, that even local
travelers and poeple who lived thier, talked about the river truning red time to time, and hearing a womans laughter high up in the trees.
The animal, john had first seen, was described as having a dog body and a rabbits head. He got his musket and shot at it, and it disappeared in
front of his eyes. I saw an american hauning, and have the dvd. Its close but not as acurate as the legend. Typical of hollywood. just like the
exorcist or Amityville horror. The exorcist, in reality, was a little boy named 'robbie' whos aunt taught him about the ouija board, and soon after
she passed, he was possesed. But thier was no head turning in a 360, throwing up green pea soup...and it was a boy, not a girl.
Amityville horror...the entire debunked haunting, took place in winter, not autumn, like hollywood portrayed it. The door that was ripped off the
hinges, in the movie...in reality it was a screen door, not a solid wood door. The pigs eyes, seen through the window...in relaitym she did see the
pig eyes, and heard it grunting. going outside, they found what lokoed like goat hoofprints in the snow. Holloywood, to me, chopped up the true
sotrys, makeshifted em a little, not telling the true sotry at all, and leaving others stuff out.
Not hijacking yuor thread man...sorry about all this info, but as yuo can tell, ive done my rresearch
and just wanted to add more cool
