Campfire Ghost Stories - Spooky October 4

The Deep River Ghost - Spooky October 3

Blind Pig & The Acorn's Spooky October

I have a special treat for you on this rainy day-(still raining in Southern Appalachia) the 3rd entry in our Spooky October series comes from the Digital Library of Appalachia. It's a special treat-cause you get to listen to it instead of read it.

In 1985 Kip Lornell recorded Margarie Quinlin telling the story that was passed down through her family. I've heard other version's of this type of ghost story. For me-it's the sort of ghost story I can easily believe. See if you agree.

Stop the player in the top right of this page by clicking on the double bars. Then click here to listen to her soothing southern accent. 

So what did you think? Believe he met her at the path?


p.s. Hope you'll take a moment to visit the folks who are playing along with me by posting their own stories for Spooky October. Check out:

~Becky at Twisted Fencpost tells a great story that was handed down by her father-he solved a Halloween mystery years after it happened.

~Fishing Guy tells how he came face to face with the legend of The Green Man from Koppel, PA.

~Paul at Salt Creek Life tells what happened on a Dark and Stormy Night at his house-scary and funny.

I love Ms. Quinlin's story. Of course, I believe it. It's spooky but still calming, knowing there is someone watching out.
Thanks for the shout out, Tipper.
Oh, and I love Miss Cindy's comment.

That was a spooky one for sure.

There are some great stories there and I've enjoyed them very much. You know I'm always up for spooky stuff; walking in the woods at night, abandoned basements and buildings. I'll link as soon as I've posted mine. This should be lots of fun. Thanks Tipper! xxoo

Ghost stories freak me out. I enjoyed your post.

okay, I absolutely want to listen but I know better! I'll be haunted by whatever it is and then probably end up dreaming about it too...LOL!

Honestly, just lookin' at the titles above makes me shiver...

I have some friends here who went to Colorado in the winter to enjoy a lodge and some winter sports. Several of them rented snow mobiles and decided to go out for a ride. When they got some distance from the lodge, one of the snowmobiles sank into the deep snow and was temporarily immobile. They tried for hours to free the machine with no success. It was getting dark and they knew they were in trouble. Then seemingly out of nowhere a young bearded man appeared on a snow mobile and offered his assistance. He lifted the heavy snow mobile out of the snow and placed it on the path. The three of them had been unable to budge it. They asked if he lived in the area, and he said he did. He guided them back toward the lodge;, then seemed to disappear as quickly as he had appeared earlier. When they told their story at the lodge, the owners said they didn't know of anyone fitting that description who lived in the area. They all wondered if perhaps they had been visited by an angel. Pappy

Tipper: Enjoyed the recorded story and the others that have shared their spooky stories.

What a great story! Yes, I believe it. The people we love are always connected to us. Be assured that when I am gone from here I will always look after you, Tipper and the Deer Hunter, and Chitter and Chatter!

I love that story and I love her accent. I could picture her story as it happened. Anyone that doesn't believe in Guardian Angels need to listen to this story.

Thanks for sharing Tipper.


This was a good one-it gave me the chills. I could believe it. You know the Lord sends us angels at times to watch over us.

I enjoy spooky stories just as long as I am not involved. hahaha
