The Maco Light

All at once the flagman Joe who was riding in the Caboose saw a fast moving passenger train coming down the track towards the back of the freight train. Joe swung the lantern and tried to get the passenger train to stop but it struck the freight train and knocked it off the track. Joe was killed and in fact his head was actually cut off in the accident. The passenger train hit the freight train so hard it knocked Joe out of the Caboose and into the swamp. And even though there was an extensive search done for Joe's head it was never found and he was buried with out it.
And over the years ever since the night of the horrible train wreck in 1867 Joe's headless ghost has been seen with his lantern flashing it back and forth like he is trying to signal someone. Over the years people have wondered if Joe is looking for his head or is he trying to signal to a passing train.
In 1889 President Grover Cleveland on a political trip through the area saw the light as have hundreds of other people over the years. It really makes you wonder how so many people down thru the years can tell almost the same exact story if they are not really seeing anything.
