Folklore, Legends, Myths, Monsters, Scary Stories and Ghosts in Ohio
Stories of Johnny Appleseed, a real nurseryman and missionary whose real name was John Chapman (he planted many apple nurseries in the Mohican area of Ohio); the ghost of Mrs Squire in Squire's Castle near Cleveland; the frog-like dwarves of Loveland; the Cry Baby Bridge in Norton, Akron, where at midnight the ghostly sight and sound of a mother throwing her baby into the river may be witnessed; and the phantom lioness, usually heard rather than seen, who follows visitors in Cincinnati Zoo, are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Ohio.
The story of Indian fighter Bill Quick, who had ninety-nine human skulls displayed as trophies in his cabin near Kenton and, on his death bed, made his son Tom swear to add the hundredth, little knowing that the hundredth trophy in the cabin would be placed there by a Native American warrior and would be Tom's own skull (there certainly was a Tom Quick, notorious for killing Native Americans indiscriminately, and the legend probably grew from a desire to create justice in legend if not in reality); the "melon heads" of Kirtland, similar to those of Connecticut and Michigan (I also suspect that the New York legend of swollen-headed Catskill gnomes owes its origin to melonheads); the hauntings of Franklin Castle (a private residence, so do not linger), Cleveland, including a crying child and unexplained music (in spite of its name and reputation as Ohio's most haunted house, it looks to me like a typical Victorian dwelling); the girl in denims and tennis shoes, who sits on her own gravestone, in Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, Dayton; the entrance to Hell created by Satanists at Satan's Hollow in Blue Ash, Cincinnati; and the spectre of William H Morgan in Glamorgan Castle, Alliance, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Ohio.
