An old and possible apocryphal tale... in 1872 in the Niagara Falls Evening Journal, published a report of a ghost at the railroad crossing in Stamford Township.

According to this report, dated March 4th, the ghost of "the late" (obviously) Mr. Cale (who they have to mention is a "Negro"... racial profiling?) and is seen in "garments worn by Cale when on earth, had a haggard countenance, with flaming eyes, and was barefooted."

This description of the apparition was seen, according to the article, by "a German woman" and a Mr. Berryman at different times.

The ghost, "barefooted", walks from the train crossing to his old log home and then back across Mr. Berryman's fields. A full distance of roughly half-a-mile. There is even mention that bare-footprints in the snow were seen after the spectre's march.

As to why Mr. Cale was still wandering, according to one witness: "He's been kilt, murdur'd, or hurt in some way."

The article goes on to say that Mr. Cale was not resting in peace is because his affairs were not looked after, post mortem, as he'd wished and had "therefore come back to adjust matters."

Does Mr. Cale still wander? Couldn't say... Was the situation resolved? Again, I don't know.

As for where this crossing and field are, the only tips I can give you is that they were of the Great Western Railroad and in Stamford Township.

Thanks to John Robert Colombo for this report.

Take this one as you will....
