The famous Myrtles farm in Louisiana is one of the most inhabited places in America. Located on 650 acres of land in St. Francisville, Los Angeles. The house was built in 1796 by General David Bradford. The general, in addition to many other future owners, did not know that before the occupation of the territories by the Spaniards, he belonged to a local Indian tribe known as "Tunicas". These Native American peoples used the land as sacred tombs. As any ghost hunter or supernatural historian will tell you, this type of desecration is a breeding ground for supernatural activity, and not usually a friendly activity, as the spirits of the dead are never happy because of the gross discomfort.
After several years on the road, a law student at David Bradford and a family friend, married 14-year-old Bradford's daughter Woodrow and Sarah Matilda. Woodruff was mature 35 but such arrangements were very common at the time. Together the couple had three daughters, Cornelia Gill, Jane, and Mary Octavia. In 1808, after Bradford's death, Clark and Sarah moved their family to the house of Myrtles. As was the custom at the time, the best in the slaves were the south. Some worked in the fields and others served a house. One of these domestic servants was a young woman named Chloe. Chloe had a close relationship with the family, where she cooked and took care of the girls personally. She and Clark were believed to have had an affair. Whether Sara knew wood about this, is unknown.
Now, Chloe, who was entangled and intertwined with Woodruff's work, had the opportunity to hear some attitudes about the house. Most of the time she eavesdropped on knowing what was going on with her fellow slaves. Things like, if there are new slaves brought to the property, or any of the slaves were to be sold or traded to another owner. But lately, Chloe was eavesdropping to see what would have happened to her. You see, lately, they have begun to suspect that Mr. Clark is tired of them. She thought he would send her to the fields, rather than grab them and say something to Sarah Woodruff about her violent experience. However, one day Chloe was arrested. Her punishment was harsh. For the crime of eavesdropping, one of her ears was cut off.
Fearful of being sent to the fields now, Chloe has devised a plan to save her current status. I collected some leaves from the dapley and poured them into the water. This would create an arsenic-like liquid that he planned to pour into a birthday cake she made for a child. It is widely believed that their intention was not murder, but instead only to make the girls and their mother sick, so you can nurse them all back to health. This would make the family grateful to her and would be able to stay as a personal servant of the family. But Chloe's plan went wrong. She had reduced the strength of the poisonous mixture and within two hours of eating the cake, two girls had died and Sarah. Chloe admitted what she had done. Then, in retaliation for the young girls, angry angry men and women, black and white alike, took her and hung her from a tree on the ground. Woodruff remained until 1834, then sold the property and moved to New Orleans. He died in 1851.
These days the Myrtles Ranch has been restored and now serves as a bed and breakfast place. Many of the guests in the house claim to have seen the ghosts and heard voices, such as footsteps. The stealth has been identified as the daughters of Woodriff, Cornelia Gill and Jane, along with their mother, Sarah Matilda, and the housekeeper, as Chloe was seen. The girls were seen playing around the house (usually on the top floor) and on the floor. Sarah Matilda's ghosts are mostly seen on the main stairs, where she walks her way to greet the guests upon arrival. Often you see a kidney as you walk around the earth and have been seen by the tree where it has been suspended.
