  1. One night my aunt and another woman were coming home from a wake in the night. They heard a walk after them and it followed them all along. When my aunt left the other woman it hunted her all the ways home and she threw the door in before her.

  2. Long ago there was a girl, and she died and she forgot to burn letters which she left after her
    The room in which she died was haunted and none sleep in that room. This man bet them that he would sleep in that room and in the middle of the night he felt a cold hand against him and he said "who is there" and the dead girl told him
    Then a beautiful lady appeared to him and said to him, to burn the letters and he did and they never saw her again.
