  1. There was once a priest who died and after his death he haunted the Presbytery. It is said he used be heard walking around the house. A courageous girl who was working there made up her mind that she would ask him what was troubling him. She waited up one night and when he came she asked him what was troubling him. he told her that he had hidden the confession of dumb man in a closet and to have she get it and burn it. He died suddenly and he had not time to do away. She got the confession and burned it and the priest never troubled the Presbytery afterwards.
