1956, Titusville, Pennsylvania: Woman is Visited by Bigfoot Ghost

Selma Jackson went to church every morning since she retired in June of 1956. Usually, the morning mass. On this particular morning, it started to rain as she made her walk to the church. Not wanting to get wet, she took cover under a little bus shelter on the side of the road.

As she stood there watching the rain pelt the road, she heard a moaning sound coming from behind her. Ms. Jackson turned around to see, much to her chagrin, hovering in the dripping trees the ghostly shape of a Bigfoot. The figure hovered off the ground a few feet and was a blue translucent color. But it was clearly a Bigfoot monster. It had the large apelike features, the massively large feet, the powerfully strong arms, and the whole area around it smelled like burning batteries.

Ms. Jackson started to pray for her safety, but the Bigfoot looked so sad and lost, she began to take pity on the ghost. She called out to it to “get on.” The ghost looked at her and she said again, “go on get on with yourself.” The Bigfoot moaned some but turned and started to float away.

A few minutes after the ghost disappeared, the rain stopped and Ms. Jackson made it to church without missing much at all. She prayed for that Bigfoot ghost that it might find it’s way to some settled peace.

1836, Nacogdoches, Texas: Davy Crockett and The Bigfoot’s Prophecy

In a letter addressed to Abner Burgin, Davy Crockett recounted the following tale:

“William and I were pushing through some thicket, clearing the way, when I sat down to mop my brow.  I sat for a spell, watching as William made his good and fine progress.  I removed my boots and sat with my rations, thinking the afternoon a fine time to lunch.  As the birds whistled and chirped and I ate my small and meager ration, I tapped my axe upon the opposite end of the felled tree, I rested upon.

“Whether it was the axe’s disturbance or possibly the heat of the high sun which caused an apparition to slowly form in front of my eyes, I know not.  As a Christian man, I swear to you, Abe, that what spirit came upon me was the shape and shade of a large ape man, the likes we might expect among the more bellicose and hostile Indian tribes of the Territories.  The shade formed into the most deformed and ugly countenance.  Covered in wild hair, with small and needling eyes, large broken rows of teeth, and the height of three foundlings, I spit upon the ground the bread I was eating.

“The Monster then addressed a warning to me.  Abner, it told me to return from Texas, to flee this Fort and to abandon this lost cause.  When I began to question this, the Creature spread upon the wind like the morning steam swirls off a frog pond.  I swear to you, Abner, that whatever meat or sausage disagreed with me that afternoon, I forswore all beef and hog for a day or so afterward.”

We all know what happened at the Alamo.  Most Crockett scholars ignore this passage as a silly story told to entertain his friend in a personal letter.  Though some Bigfoot scholars remain convinced that the creature reached out and tried to save the Frontiersman the horrible fate that was soon to befall him!
