History

In the fall, 1865, Captain Charles Locklin and his wife witnessed a strange paranormal phenomena. The Locklins were inside of their carriage early one morning and they saw six Union soldiers on horseback pass on either side of them. Each soldier had white gloves on their hands, which crossed on the pommel of the saddle. They also had bandages wrapped around their heads.

The Locklins also witnessed the appearance of Lafayette Seigler, a Confederate soldier who ambushed the Union patrols and killed them; he also cut off their ears to add his collection of Union soldier ears. A total of twelve soldiers, not including Seigler, haunt the McConnico Cemetery.
