Demonic entity photographed during a séance at Retchford House,1933. Medium Elizabeth Stolwort was reported missing a week after the events that night and was eventually found in woods nearby her home. Massive blood loss was the cause of death due to several deep lacerations across the body and both eyes had been gouged out. Others who had attended the sitting suffered from mental breakdowns or hallucinations, two had commited suicide. (sheeeeeesh, really??)

    Hi Juliette, These Appalachian people. I've never heard of them. I think I want to know more about the history. Very interesting! Thank you

    Gravin, yes very interesting. Jobs are hard to find because of the decline in demand for coal, lumber, and tobacco. These mountain people are still poor. My Dutch ancestors are Lodewyck Coreliszeen Post born in Amsterdam in 1600 and his wife, Agnietje Bonen or Boon.

Just 10 years after President Lincoln's assassination, his widow, Mary Todd Lincoln, was charged with insanity and put on trial in Chicago. The accuser was her only surviving son, Robert Lincoln. The trial was held on May 19, 1875 and she had received no prior warning or chance to organise a defense. The jury deliberated for only 10 minutes and she was institutionalized at Bellevue Place Asylum. Mary was released after less than 4 months but mother and son were never truly reconciled.
