It is said by some to be the ghost of a Hessian trooper, whose head had been carried away by a cannon-ball, in some nameless battle during the revolutionary war...
Stran 338 - ... the ghost rides forth to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head; and that the rushing speed with which he sometimes passes along the Hollow, like a midnight blast, is owing to his being belated, and in a hurry to get back to the churchyard before daybreak.
Stran 328 - ... yard, where the sunbeams seem to sleep so quietly, one would think that there at least the dead might rest in peace.

Stran xviii - In the days of Shamgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were unoccupied, and the travellers walked through byways. 7 The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a mother in Israel.
Stran 398 - Anne, by the Grace] of God of Great Britain France [and Ireland] Queen, Defender of the Faith, Anno Domini, 1710.
