An Early Settler
Judith Howard was an early settler
at a place called Sebascodeagan Island in Harpswell.
She lived by herself. No one knew where she came
from. People thought that she didn't have any
relatives. They whispered about Judith and said she
was a witch.
She liked to gather herbs and
roots so she could help cure a lot of people.
She told her neighbors not to
bury her anywhere near Lambo who was an Indian. She
said if they buried her there she would haunt them.
When Judith died, they buried
her near old Lambo. Then people started hearing
strange noises and they said that was Judith. They
then had a meeting and decided to move her body
because of all the strange noises, The neighbors
said that after she died, they kept on seeing
strange sights and hearing strange noises, The
neighbors took what was left of her body and put it
on sleds and carried her body about two miles away.
Then all the people were happy.
After Judith was moved, the
noises, the noises stopped.
