In the summer of 1877, a Forestburg farmer related a most unusual sight. Everyday around noon, he noticed a woman meandering across a nearby pasture. She took the same route each day, walking diagonally across the field and into a thicket. If he ignored her, she quietly and leisurely made her daily journey. If he walked in her direction, she would scurry into the thicket. After seeing her for several days, he decided perhaps she was a wild woman and called for reinforcements to investigate. The next day he rounded up his buddies, they strategically lined up around the perimeter of the pasture. When the woman made her appearance, they all approached towards her, surrounding her on all sides. She rushed into the thicket. The curious searchers continued their advance, circling closer and closer to the thicket. They entered the thicket and searched every nook and crannie, but found no sight of the mysterious woman.
The next day, the noonday sun arose, and the woman made her daily stroll.
