I was recently told by a clamper that the reason the
chinese remains were exhumed
and sent back to china was that
their bodies were considered by
them and others to be owned
by the emperor in china (but
their spirits stayed?)

The Tightner house was built
by a Mr. Locey who was related
to the wife of John Armstrong
who was my Granpa's brother
and partner in Armstrong Bros
in town.

With it being October and all I was hoping some people would come forward with some ghost stories.

As kids in Alleghany we were all convinced that the Tightner Mansion was haunted. It had been vacant for many years. We all heard the piano playing one night and ran home as fast as we could.

Then there was the boot ghost. A certain resident in town whose name I will not mention would put his boots side by side each night when he went to bed. Every morning one boot would be moved so that it was perpendicular to the other one. This lasted for about a year then ceased.

This is a bit out of character for the recent climate of debate, but of serious consequence:

Next year's election's outcome may spell out a prescription for behavior if we're not vigillant...We don't need that.

We don't need a facist directive to dictate what we wish to achieve in the private sector. (Hmmm, who does everyone think I'm pointing to?)

It's this blatant: whether there becomes a mandatory set of rules of behavior or not...whether freedom rings, or just goes "thud" when we try to ring the bell.

Let's all beware. Watch Out! Freedom is at stake, when a complete faction of the population is identified as being stupid and dumb enough to buy into it, it's prudent to stand up and talk, write, or scream.

If I need to spell out the rational for my entry tonight, I am well prepared to explain when anyone asks.

I'm preaching to the choir.

Bullion is gold, silver or platinum in a smelted or refined state in the shape of bars, ingots or buttons etc. prior to coinage. Refined fine bullion is generaly used to create coins. Once coined it is called a bullion coin.

My aunt also told me about the
chinese cemetery near town. The
last time she was there she
asked about and no one could
recall where it was located.
A Clamper friend of mine told
me that it was a Chinese custom
that the bodies were buried
here and later exhumed and
shipped to China, so maybe thereare no more chinese buried
in Alleghany, but maybe their
spirits are still around, no?

There's nothing to be scared of. People love ghost stories! Actually it was the heater kicking on that kept my friends awake.
I've never heard of a ghost doing physical harm to anybody. I have a theory that people who come here for the first time are more sensitive to paranormal activity than those of us who have lived here for a long time. Then there are the Tommyknockers.....plenty of ghost stories from underground. I once felt a very definitive "tap tap" on my right shoulder underground but nobody was there.

Is anyone in Alleghany missing a long red plastic scooper spoon? One turned up unannounced in my utility drawrer after a trip up the ridge last spring. None of my neighbors nor I had ever seen it before. I put it on top of my refrigerator and it hasn't moved lately.

Well first i want to say thanks for the info, keep it coming...Rae Bell from my reseach you are the curator at the museum and you might know what's really going on... I've learned a lot from the museum web site, but can't find any thing else about ghost's/hauntings. Martin Newkon let me know if ther is any thing eles to the story or where to find more info. gfxgold I found this site through your site and I signed your guest book. I also read the story about the friend of yours that went to the Morning Glory Mine&Mill. The crew has only been in the house for 2 weeks and they have at least 8 more weeks, and after that I will be able to give you a better story. I was going to go stay a night or two with my husband but I don't think I will(scared) of the house.

RE: Martin's Aunt - yes it was Mountain House that had a reputation for being the last place a person was known to have traveled to before vanishing. That was in the early 1900's.

The house is right in the middle of town, with doors that go nowhere. I don't think it's Helga(ha ha)with her whiskers on her snout. It seems to be a spanish woman. All I know is that the entire crew staying in the house never gets a full night sleep. Martin Newkom you stopped mid sentence on your first responce, what was the end?
 By Rae Bell

I hear there's a ghost named Helga who likes to steal things. An odd gal she has whiskers on her snout. Her taste is quite whimsical, a plastic jug of water, a roller blade, a hose nozzel even pruning shears!! Neighbors beware the wild wooley one!

My aunt Helen who lived in
alleghany from 1900 to about
1915 talked about a mother and
son who away from town had
a boarding house where miners
and especially Hi-graders would
go for accomodations and never
be seen again. I believe is was
at Mountain House or a similar name.

our company is putting fiber(phone lines) in the area and is rentig a house from mike miller in alleghany, and they say the house is haunted, they have been hearing stories! anyone have info?????

All of the miners in Alleghany offer prayers, hope, and good luck to the rescuers and condolences to the families and friends on the surface. May the Goddess of Mining protect those in danger in Utah.

Scoop does not watch television and has seen no television coverage about this tragic situation. Scoop just read two newspaper stories. For the sake of one of Americaís most needed and dangerous occupations, an occupation that is known as vital to insure a free society, letís look for the truth behind the tragedy and keep an open mind. America, through government guidance and industry enforcement and practices, has as safe a work environment as any country in the world. It is not by chance that this is true.

If these old foundery co. were
still around they could tell
some wonderful stories. There
were at least two in Marysville
the Empire and the Marysville.
The Empire made "Monitors" for
hydraulic mining; the Marys-
ville made flat-cars for the
lumber mills and at least one
steam engine for the "Meteor"
an early steamer on Lake Tahoe.
