Visitors' Experiences at the Haunted Cherokee Cemetery

My husband’s family has lived in Cherokee for the past 20 years. We live there now. 4 years ago my father-in-law was outside one night, gathering wood. Suddenly he heard something moving in the bushes right behind him, then a horrible noise. We know it was not an animal because it did not move or sound likes one. There have been a ton of ghost sightings here. - Christina
I and a friend went up there a few months ago at night and we heard the loudest scream ever. Each scream happened three times and were followed immediately by a very loud roar. The screams were heart cleaver and ear piercing. – Neil

Stories of ghost and things that go bump in the night are great fun. But, purely a figment of the individuals imagination. Cherokee cemetery is my families burial site. The Granite Pillars and Front Gates were installed by my family. I have spent many hours at this cemetery over the years and, even spent an unplanned night at the cemetery being locked in for the entire night. I was attending the burial of a family member . The year was 1988. The seen was gloomy and right out of a 1950's Horror movie. The sky was black with clouds and heavy rain poured down, thunder echoed throughout the grave yard and lighting flashed, lighting up the open grave and casket.
As we stood around the grave site. All were dressed in black, many held black umbrella's. When the service ended everyone headed to their cars to make the long winding drive from Table mountain back to the valley below.
However, one of us always remain until.. The grave is back filled. It was my turn. The rain continued relentlessly. As the workers back filled the grave, The rain was building up on the decomposed granite dirt roads of the cemetery, turning some areas to slush. The workers completed back filling the grave just before sunset. I walked to my car. Which was parked at the end of the road, at the opposite end of the cemetery from the main gate. Which was the only way in or out. I started my engine. and put it in gear, only to find my car had sunk in to the soft decomposed granite and mud. I was stuck. I got out of my car and ran through the grave yard to catch the workers as they left, in hopes of getting them to help me pull my car out of the mud. Only to find. they had left the Cemetery, locking the gate behind them. Needless to say. I spent the night from 5:46 pm to after 9:00 AM There were no disturbances, no ghost, spooks or things that goes bump in the night. Other than sounds of thunder clashes from the storm and the wind blowing through the few trees.
