Mary's Grave - Real Haunts in St. James NY
According to these stories, if you come across the spot where she died you may see Mary’s body still hanging from a tree. It has also been said that if you park your car in front of Mary’s home, flash your headlights, honk your horn, and turn the vehicle off, it won’t start again when you try to turn it back on.
Mary has also been described as a witch who kidnapped and killed children until she was found out and burned at the stake by local townsfolk, who then buried her ashes in a potter’s field. She has alternatively been described as a young woman who was set upon by two boys and then killed right outside her own home. Supposedly her grave is located in the woods behind her house, but if you attempt to photograph her tombstone the image will come out blank. Near her house there is also said to be small store building; allegedly if you hold a cross and knock on the door three times you will wake the dead.
The grave has been conversely described as being in Head of the Harbor, Huntington, Stony Brook, and Mount Sinai. One of the most concrete locations given is Shep Jones Road in St. James; according to this version Mary’s house was located on the side of this road, and she was murdered there in her sleep by her own mother. Mary was buried in the field behind the house, and her spirit is said to still haunt the surrounding area. People have reported hearing voices and feeling cold spots or hot spots in the woods at night.

Been here a few times with friends. I drive twice- my car cut off, music turned off and static cane through the radio. I tried to turn around and my car wouldn’t go in reverse! When I didn’t drive, I always had an uneasy feeling.. like I was being watched. There were dead animals decaying by the clubhouse. We walked back behind the house to the gravesite, but couldn’t get that far. We heard a girl laughing and an energy in-line anything I ever experienced. Lights started appearing in the windows so we bailed.Posted 5/1/19

It was pretty creepy there was a planned door and it was pitch dark when I put light on the room there was a little dress and a wall with paint and she used the red paint and it spelled out MARRY when I went to the stoned play house I saw a stone that read out majestic and it looked like there was some duck tape the creepiest part was I saw a Ouija box and a squirrel or some type of animal fly past me and the house looked like someone just left because It looked like nobody has even touched it I would not recommend you going because when I tried to leave my truck would start and I kept hearing a crying dogPosted 2/9/19

Mary was a little girl
Through the day I have been watching lots of videos of my favourite youtubers reviewing “Mary’s Grave” and I researched a bit. I was confused by all of the different tales of the story but the one I firmly believe was that Mary was a young girl who didn’t have any friends except the animals so her dad built her a clubhouse where she would hang out with her animal friends. One day she started to kill the animals and quite quickly, that escalated to killing her brother and her father. The townspeople found Mary asleep next to her dead father who was covered in blood and romour has it they hung her from a tree which if you go to, you can see the burn marks from the rope!! That’s all I know....Posted 11/15/18

To be honest, I don’t believe in ghosts. but the story feels like something out of a horror story.. the type of story I heard was she was a little girl and she had a mental illness and killed animals in what she called her clubhouse. It became a real problem and she murderered her family. She either hung herself or the town’s people hung her.Posted 10/26/18
