Another urban legend from Ohio’s Sleepy Hollow.
As the urban legend goes, John (also sometimes listed as James) Buckley was a rich man living along the banks of Possum Run Creek (now Little Sugar Creek). One night, his cabin was broken into and he was decapitated as thieves tried to find his buried treasure, and his ghost still haunts the creek looking for his head.
Is this story true? Did this really happen?
Well, yes and no.
