Henry Bratton told Charles Koenig of a hanging that once took place under the large oak tree that stands on the east end of the cemetery. It seems one luckless young man raped a local women and was found by vigilantes who strung him up to a limb on the north side of that old oak. After leaving him hang for a couple of days, they returned and reportedly buried him where he fell when they cut him down. Henry learned of this story from Roy Craig, who lives nearby.
