Shall we make a sacrifice
Well, I don't really think that this particular area of the land is a past sacrificial area but a few other people do. One person would not even go in the fenced area. It is a strange little area though. There is a chain link fence then you go down and there is another little fenced in area out of barbed wire with a picket gate and then inside that is a 4 sided little area built out of rocks with an old hammock tied up and the top of a deer stand to one side. It is a bit erie even to me but I truly think it is either a) where someone had a pot field growing and put all that up to keep the animals out or b) part of the old school house that used to be there from Payton Colony. Payton Colony is the whole divide area as to what I am told. It was given to freed slaves and they lived there after the civil war. Now I have not verified that but it is the folklore up in those parts. Tex and Ashley put a tent in there one night and were going to sleep out there but a huge storm came thru with huge lightning and they came running up the hill and slept on the floor in our cabin.
