Ghosts: Dead Men tell no tales
During the heydays of the Ohio & Erie Canal, between 1830 -1850 the nude corpse of a man was found floating in the canal. There is a report that 15-17 canal boat workers were found murdered along the canal. You can imagine what was going through the mind of a canal worker when there was a serial killer on the loose.
Attempts to identify the victims as well as the murderer(s) were unsuccessful. You have to keep in mind that the canal workers made up of Irish and German ancestry with the majority of those being the Irish who were generally illiterate and without family and thus considered as expendable at that time as no one would be searching for them.
It is reported that the ghosts of these men can be seen roaming the canal looking for the person or persons responsible for their murders.
The next time you are walking along the canal and you see a group of unusual men who appear to be searching for something, give them a nod and wish them good luck.
