Colonel Buck’s Cursed
Bucksport’s cursed tombstone
looking for clues ~ foot stain
The “tomb” of the town’s founder,
Colonel Jonathan Buck,
features a mysterious stain —
the image of a woman’s stocking foot or boot.
The leg stain on the memorial, according to legend,
came about when Colonel Buck burned a witch
and her leg rolled out of the bonfire.
His heirs tried to clean the foot off the stone
and are said to have replaced the monument twice
— but ..the foot ..kept.. coming back.
When I rode by the cemetery on September 21, 2013
I could see the image from the car. Siggi
