Some of our new members would like to hear more stories on the withces and shape-shifters of Kentucky.
William "Devil Bill" Boggs s/o Eli Boggs and Tabatha Pennington Boggs was said to be a witch who could bewitch guns, dogs, deer and other animals.
Bill is said to go to the top of a hill in Letcher Co. KY; and shoot his gun at the sun-cursed-blessed until the ground begin to shake and tremble and thunder was heard all round. If a person could stand all this-they would return from the bewitching place a witch.
John A. Black b. 1831 in Morgan Co. KY was known to be a shape-shifter.
