6 miles east of Catoosa on highway 412 sets a small community cemetery. The cemetery sets on the edge of an area known to local residents as haunted hallow. It is said in 1989 a young Indian boy was struck by a car while stopped on the road on his bike. He was buried in the cemetery on the first row in the gate. The gate sits at the bottom of the hill and since 1993 drivers have claimed as they came over the hill spotting a young boy kneeling next to a bike. Some have swerved to miss him and others distinctly hear the sound of the car striking something but when they inspect the road no body is found. Some claim to even spot bloody hand prints on the fenders. Catoosa police department have on file several reports of drivers saying they struck a boy on a bicycle in front of the cemetery gate and even photos of minor damage to the cars but no body has ever been found. Also several teenagers trespassing on the wooded lot in front of the cemetery have claimed to have sudden nose bleeds and spot glowing objects above the graves...it is rumored that the cemetery gate has been seen by the caretaker to open itself and several have quit.

Two friends and I visited the cemetary yesterday. There are TWO gates, one at the road and a second one at the entrance to the cemetary. We checked ALL graves and didn't find any marker for this child. Is the grave between gate one and gate two or inside gate two? Also, to the right of the outside gate (road) there is a slope or basin going down where there are three demolished houses. Is there any information about the houses? Who was this Indian child? We checked with the Catoosa newspaper, Chamber of Commerce and library. A BIG NOTHING! There are two houses on the main road before turning right to the cemetary. Was this child buried without proper identification? We are doing research on legends and hauntings. The three houses look as if they were destroyed by a tornado. The article does "tickle one's fancy". Should you wish to contact me via email, my address is medaide2922@yahoo.com I would appreciate more details on this location. Thank You

I reported this to a police officer at get in go in  1994 i showed him the handprints  and was basically dismissed...the three houses were tored down not destroyed...its the second gate that opens and shuts not the main gate i had this on video it occured just before my nose bled and red lights emerged from the trees i had all this on film but after about 2 weeks the video went fuzzy...i was a non believer this is the experiance that prompt my interest in investigating paranormal..however even tho i live 2 min from this location its the only place i havent returned to reinvestigate as for the kid im drawing a blank on his identity and resting place as well...i also have pics of the hand prints however they are on the hood of my car not the fender and the boy was standing next to  bike not kneeling...the impact was felt by all 3 of my friends and i actually ran the car off the road...until i saw this web page i didnt know anyone else experianced this..nor had i ever herd the story before or since..

The map is incorrect. I have been to the cemetary several times. When going East on 412, the cemetary will be on the left (North). After you turn onto 289th E. Ave., the cemetary will be on the left. If you reach Pine St. you've gone too far. They've just recently chained the main gate so you'll have to jump it.

There is a bad, evil spirit lurking in this cemetery... aka a DEMON. Some friends and I went to this cemetery wanting to look for ghosts, take pictures, the usual... and as soon as we were all inside, the gate slammed itself shut very very forcefully! This made us uneasy and we knew it was not a friendly gesture (and definitely not the wind--there was none) so we started discussing that we needed to leave. We all saw the sky grow very dark suddenly, and a strong, chilly wind started blowing all around us (it was a calm, partly-cloudy warm summer day.) All of a sudden one of the men in our group started making weird squeaking/gurgling noises and trembling, and we saw his nose was GUSHING blood. We tried talking to him and pulling his arm to get him to leave but he seemed glued to the spot and unable to speak. We had to carry him out of there and he finally "came to" after a few frantic minutes back in the car. What he described to us was watching a pair of disembodied red glowing eyes come flying toward him then "hitting" him with great force, causing the nosebleed and paralysis. He felt like something evil had entered his body and probably could have seriously harmed him had we not gotten him away. Also, a few of us were snapping pictures and one was even videotaping almost constantly from the time we got to the cemetery, but everyone's film was totally blank when we tried to review it later (this has never happened before or since.) People will continue to post this cemetery on "haunted places" websites and go "ghosthunting" there, but I want to warn everyone that these things are REAL and that they are NO JOKE. Some spirits are truly evil and they want nothing more than to harm the living! And they most certainly CAN harm you. So please be careful what you mess with especially if you don't understand it.

my kids and a handfull of their friends went out there last night.  Let me tell you what I have never seen a bunch of white faced kids in all my life.  They were scared to death.  One of the boys came out with blood all over his arms and bloody fingerpirints on his face.  If I would not have seen it for myself I would have never believed it.  He said he thought one of the other kids were touching him, and when they realized what was happening they left in a hurry.  Becarefull and respect other peoples graves, you never know what lurks in dark!

The only thing disturbing here is the lunatics that keep messing with the "normal" of a quiet and peaceful community.  I can speak with some authority here, I have lived all my life within a few miles of this cemetery, and I have many family members who rest there.  Plain and simple, this story of an Indian boy is a hoax.  No one in the community knows anything about any such story, not now, not in the past, not ever.

Here are few things for you to consider:   1) no area around the cemetery is called "haunted hallow".  2) there is no one buried "just inside the gate". 3) the gate is not at the bottom of a hill. Some might say at the top of a ridge, but I'd say it's on level ground. 4) I doubt the Catoosa Police have anything on file. The location is about 5 miles outside of their jurisdiction. 5) No caretakers have ever quit. I've known the last 3 over the past 45+ years. 6) and yes, the gate is made to close on it's own.  The cemetery is surrounded by a cow pasture and too many people think you should leave a closed gate open after you drive through it!

But most importantly, I need people to understand the disruption this internet hoax has posed for our community.  What used to be a quiet and tranquil place, with open access to all has all changed.  The entrance gate now has to be locked, to prevent trespassing on private property, vandalism and desecration of gravestones, etc. So local people, the ones who actually have a good reason to be there, are no longer able to visit family grave sites at will.   For some, this "inconvenience" is an unwelcome and uninvited disruption to "normal" rural life.   In many ways, it's perceived as trespassing on much more than sacred soil alone, but as footsteps on the honor of the dead, and the dignity of the living.

Respectfully submitted for your consideration,

first off i agree the disrespect that some investigators have is rediculous and unfair however the gate was locked to protect from liability and fyi its the 2nd gate not the main gate i witnessed not only shutting but opening and its a standard hinged metal gate not a spring loaded hinge at least in 94 it wasnt..2nd i live 2 miles from the center in the middle of what is known as haunted hollow and yes its been known by that name for years...not because of paranormal but because of an accult that communed here several years ago..3rdly i have witnessed this myself in fact i was one of the first that i know of actually only one i knew of until 10 minutes ago...and i reported it to a rogers county sherrif dep at what was then get in go and i was dismissed as a teenager stirring trouble....as far as disruption to the community i havent experienced it but if it is happening then i agree it is rediculous i love it out here people watch out for each other and its peaceful so much in fact i bought my parents house and have been liveing here for 33 years total.....

My fiancee and I went out there last weekend.  It was a dark, moonless night and we didn't have the nerve to hop the fence, so we stood at the fence and ran our digital camcorder.  All of a sudden, on the screen of the camcorder there was a large, red orb moving around.  We could only see it on the camera screen.  Thinking it might be a city light off in the distance, we tried zooming in and out but couldn't debunk it.  The orb is large and moves very slowly up and down and side to side.  Something is definitely there and I'd like to go check it out in the daytime.
