Legend

DURING THE REVOLUTION, THERE WAS A DESERTER WHO LIVED IN A SHACK
WITH A WOMAN THAT HE KIDNAPPED, AND FROM THIS WOMAN HE HAD A SON
WHO LATER DID THE SAME THING AS HIS FATHER AND IT HAS GONE ON LIKE
THIS FOR GENERATIONS. IT IS RUMORED THAT THE MAN IS STILL
LOOKING FOR HIS WIFE BUT HAS NOT FOUND HER YET.
 

Submitter comment:

LEROY SAW THE CABIN AND SAYS HE GOT THE LEGEND FROM THIS
