:| Found this neat article about a lake in Texas that is drying up....and revealed a ghost town. What do you think? Could this ghostly discovery be haunted?

If I were buried in a spot that was intended to be my final resting place, with my name on a marker for future generations to see, for someone to remember me...

...and someone put a lake on me, I would haunt everyone.

I personally believe that some spirits want to make sure they are not forgotten. It's kinda sad, really.

It really is :( I mean they could have put the lake somewhere else rather than relocating the corpses. I wonder why they didn't relocate the tombstones as well? I was a little shocked to read too that several looters had been arrested trying to take artifacts from the area. But I kind of have to wonder, someone else brought up a perfectly good question. If the site was previously under 30+ feet of water, not to be cared for by anyone, artifacts could wash away at any point....why are people being arrested for taking/preserving these artifacts? The state didn't seem to care about the area too much before whilst it was under water. =/ I guess because they didn't get permission to remove such artifacts?

My ancestors are Slovakian, and sometime in the early 1900s during one of the many occupations, a certain group decided they wanted a reservoir. They liked the area that happened to be the small town and a few surrounding very tiny villages that my people came from. The entire area was flooded. The Catholic Church, cemeteries, homes, and anything/anyone that didn't get out went under.

Obviously I will never be able to walk the same paths that my ancestors did. I can see being angry if the waters receded and I had a chance to possibly own a few items that have historical significance to me and my family. If someone just grabbed them for the sake of saying they had them, I think I would be upset about it.

I certainly think the artifacts should be salvaged before going back under water. I really think that it would be nice to relocate the resting places of those that are lost to time. I think it would be a nice gesture to remember the people that came before us, and if there are spirits out there looking for recognition, maybe they could get some peace.

Very cool story Hailey! I love this kind of stuff, it is so interesting. The history nerd inside me has been satisfied... for now. ;)

Very interesting!! Sort of like Dinosaur Valley that uncovered all the tracks. Wonder how many more are in our lakes or under buildings that we don't know about? I remember one grave located on Texas Wesleyan grounds that was surrounded by a small iron fence. When I last went back, it was gone and a parking lot was there. Wonder if they moved the person or just took the fence down? Makes one wonder, doesn't it?

Hi everyone! Newbie here. Just wanted to say that where I live there was a town that was flooded with the now present lake of Tenkiller, here in OK. The town was "relocated" away but the actual buildings and such were left. I understand that scuba dive shops around the lake will take divers out and they can actually "visit" the town. Also, I used to fish on several lakes around Fort Worth and it was not uncommon to see railroad tracks, construction equipment, cars and such on the depth finder and fish finder. You just never know what lurks just beneath.....
