LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of the mysterious glowing horseshoe.
In Perry County, Ohio,
there is a rumor about a glowing horseshoe. As the story goes,
around the middle of the 1800’s a man by the name of James Henry was
a resident of the county. He was in love with two women and could
not decide which one he wished to marry.
While out in his buggy one night, he
fell asleep. Normally, his horse would pull the buggy home, but on
this night, the horse pulled the buggy to the home of one of the
young ladies. At this time, he knew he was destined to marry this
lady. For a long time, the couple lived very happily, until the
woman fell ill and passed away. She was buried in Otterbein
Every day James would visit and place
flowers on his wife’s grave. One day while visiting his wife, the
other woman he had been courting was at the cemetery. Their romance
began again and they were married.
He was so involved with the new love of
his life that was once the old love of his life, that he quit
visiting his wives grave. All the flowers he had placed so carefully
died. One day, a man was passing by the cemetery and noticed a
bloody horseshoe on the tombstone of his wife. The man went to visit
James and explained this was a bad omen. James ignored the warning.
The very next day, James’s new wife found him dead in the stables
with an imprint of a horseshoe on his forehead.
The legend says on a foggy night, if
you listen quietly, you will hear the sound of the horse’s hoof’s
going up and down the road near by Otterbein Road and the horseshoe
on the wives grave will glow.
