Will Nitromadman32 Please write me. I want to find out all I can about this place. Since Polly came to see me, I want to learn all I can about her. I sure wish I could meet some of her great great grandchildren. I would love to meet grandchildren. I am sure if she died in 1888, someone around must remember a story that thier parents or grand parents told them.
if you are related to any Long's in that area ,then you are related to her.
I don't know if Polly Long being the witch of Tilley Bend is true or not, or whether there is actually a witch buried in the cemetary.I do know that I have witnessed paranormal activity at the church a few years back before they remoleded it, along with others that had gone with me on a ghost hunt.
feel free to hit me up if you would like to share each others experiences

i have been to tilley bend and i can confirm that is haunted because ive seen elizabeth bradly with my own eyes floating down from the grave yard in a long black dress with longish black hair she looked into the window of my car and vanished into a black fog. then i walked out the road from the church wich there is a black figure there it wouldnt let me pass so i turned and ran to the car. also i cut the old tree in front of the church and it bleed real blood . i will post more later peace!
I love to hear these kind of war stories that some of these nutbags come up with You can tell the truth from the lies, Because the history doesn't mesh with the place and the time period.
From 1700s to 1838 this was Cherokee land. Also they wouldn't BURN OR BURY a witch in a church yard because it would desecrate the LORDS HOUSE and ground.
My great grandfather J. Thomas Tilley and his mother Martha? came here to NC in the late 1800s. Our family has been stuck for years on who his father was. I've recently discovered that Martha may have been the unmarried daughter of Tilghman (Tillman) and Prudence Tilley, therefor J. Thomas Tilley was illegitimate. I'm not sure if this is true or not, but would like any info anyone could give me.
