The ghost of Duck Pond in Jamaica, N.Y. had been sighted for many years. He'd been frightening people who saw him when he appeared like a "mournful shade from the treetops when there is a ring around the moon."
Mines, both mysterious and treacherous are believed by the men that work there to be haunted.

In Grant Town, West Virginia the Federal No. 1 mine operated from 1901 until 1985 and was said to be haunted by a Russian miner.
