The story of the Bell Witch.
Everyone has heard of the Bell
Witch, but do you really know the true story behind this ghostly haunting?
No one is for sure who really haunts the entire
area of Adams, Tennessee; however, it is believed to be Kate Batts. The story
goes like this. In 1817 at John Bell farm, the family begins to hear scratching
and knocking sounds throughout their entire home. However, this is only the
beginning. The ghost is not pleased with the family pretty much ignoring her
eerie rapping’s and becomes more violent. She begins to kick and pull the hair
of every family member. The one she targets the most is Betsy Bell. This little
girl is kicked, bruised, pinched and even stuck with pins from unseen hands and
feet. The ghost would appear in human form and screams were heard day and night.
There was no peach for the Bell Family. It is believed that the ghost, Kate
Batts, was back for revenge against John Bell over a sour business deal.
This vengeful ghost began to travel throughout the
entire county wreaking havoc everywhere she went. This ghost did not make it a
secret who she was and even identified herself as Kate Batts. Rumors flew all
around Tennessee about the ghost at the Bell farm and General Andrew Jackson
stopped by to witness the hauntings. After General Jackson visited the Bell
farm, John Bell became fatally ill and it was reported that the witch was seen
hovering close by his bed and harassing the General until he breathed his last
breath. She was seen at his funeral, laughing and cursing through the entire
Poor Betsy Bell was tormented by the ghostly witch
until she married and moved from the county. It has been reported that others
that lived in the home years later reported strange occurrences, dark
apparitions and screams from the Bell cemetery close by the home.
Today, you can take a tour of the Bell Cave that is
claimed to be the Bell’s witch’s home, if you dare.
