Vegor's Cemetery near Stratford, Iowa has long been rumored to be haunted. The most popular story is of the ghost of Arizona Jones, a 12 year old girl who died 6 days before her brother in 1871. There are no other Jones in the cemetery, so it is assumed that the children died while the family was moving through the area and they had to leave their bodies. The story goes that that you can see her sitting on her headstone out of the corner of your eye. She will follow you throughout your visit, and you will hear children laughing!
Ghosts of Native Americans are also seen in the area as this was their sacred burial ground before the white man came. Originally there were 5 burial mounds, which settlers dug into, releasing the spirits to walk the earth because of the desecration. No doubt, the mounds were destroyed, just like the ones in the downtown Des Moines area. Fifty years ago, Native American bones, found in another location, were interred in the Cemetery and a sign was built on what would have been the most northerly mound. You can see 4 mounds plainly; took photos of those too.
We will plan a night investigation there next summer with just our team. It is very cool.
The night photos featured in the gallery above are from Scott Wallerich, the daytime Photos by SRSOI's Vicki Stinson. Enjoy.
