The ghost of who is believed to be Laurie May Maumsey has been seen barefoot holding a baby in the ridges of the Ozark Mountains. Maumsey lived in a cabin in the foothills during the 1930s. Sometime during the decade, her drunk threatened to beat the baby unless she gave him money.
They struggled and fought, which caused the infant to slip from her grasp and die on impact from a concussion after hitting the stone floor. Not long after, Laurie May Maumsey committed suicide. Now, her ghost wanders the mountains with her baby in her arms.
