Can't rember the reason for leaving an old chimney in the woods alone. Granny said spirits of the people so lived there were in those chimney's do you all know anything about this ?

Research Material

I really enjoyed reading this. Both my parents were from Appalachia (NC and VA), but rarely talked about their childhoods. So I really did not learn much until I was older and started researching the subject. I am currently looking for some of the lesser known folklore characters from the Scottish and Irish immigrants. Can you recommend any inexpensive or free (websites)?
