Demon in a Tree

My uncle, Milford Howell told me a story about a picture that was taken on a graveyard that showed a demon sitting in a tree.  He said that three young soldiers had been killed and sent home to be buried.  Several local men had gathered to dig the graves, all side by side.  Someone took a picture of the three coffins lined up to be buried.  A young sapling was directly behind the graves and when the photo was developed, it clearly showed a demonic looking entity sitting between the forks of that tree.  He said it was the worst lookin’ thing he had ever saw in his life.  There was no way any of the grave diggers could have missed it while the graves were being dug.   He said hundreds of copies were printed and sold around the county.  I would love to see a copy of one of those pictures.

    I’ve heard of that picture and this story too. I can’t remember who told me. It might have been Uncle Milford at a family reunion or something. Of course, I could have heard one of our family members repeat it too. I would love to find a copy of the picture. Its such a neat story and I’m sure the picture would put chills all over your body!
