The Sallie House
My Theories

            Is it really haunted, the house on second street?  Is the spirit of a child named Sallie trapped in the house?  Was Tony Pickman really scratched by a ghost?  Why can’t we find any proof of Sallie’s existence?

            I have been looking for proof of Sallie’s existence for three years, and in that time, I have found a number of interesting individuals connected with the house and the family that built it, but no child named Sallie.  Every lead dead ends.  But we keep looking, and hope that something will eventually lead us to the truth.  One think I know with some certainty, is that Sallie was not a child that Dr. Charles Finney operated on in the house.  Or at least that is very unlikely.  As far as I can tell, no child named Sallie has died in that house.  Perhaps the child spirit in the house just took the name and kept using it through the years.  But why not use their real name, a name connected with their past and their reason for remaining on this earth.

            So we don’t know who Sallie was, but we do know the names and assorted histories of other people connected with the property.
