Is there a werewolf in Paulding county? Probably not…

No true believers, you did not misread the title. Is there a werewolf in Paulding County? Probably not- but that hasn’t stopped the nearly two dozen sightings that have been reported since 2006. You read that right, nearly TWO DOZEN reported sightings of a werewolf-like creature have occurred here in Paulding County, Georgia.

The area in question seems to stretch from High Shoals Road all the way to Lucas Road. Nearly every report is the same. Someone’s driving their car and sees something with incredible speed cross the road in front of them. They slow down to see what it was, only to be greeted with a glimpse of the alleged Paulding County werewolf. Lucas Road 3

Towering over any known canine, people claim it to be nearly 7 feet tall. That’s more than twice the size of an adult large breed dog. All reports have described the beast as having piercing red eyes and a dull charcoal grey coat with similarly colored skin exposed. Every report about the physical description has remained the same. And we can confirm with confidence that most of the people who send us reports of this creature have no connections to one another. They are seemingly and entirely independent reports.

Now don’t go out there with your guns blazin’, hunting some werewolf on the backroads of Paulding County just yet! More than likely, the werewolf is just local folklore, although recent sightings have put that into question. These two dozen reported werewolf sightings have happened as lately as last month (July 2015).

With that being said, what do you think these people are seeing? It’s not a school-of-thought we usually subscribe to, but who can really say what experiences may or may not have happened? We don’t mean to demean anyone’s experiences or beliefs. We would just like to know where more people stand on the matter.

Old White Oak Cemetery in Dallas GA

14853686768060From time to time we get questions and requests regarding Old White Oak Cemetery here in Dallas, Georgia. Sometimes people asking if a local legend is true, sometimes people asking about investigating the location. First let me state, investigate at your own risk. We cannot give you permission to check this place out. We advise against it. Again, investigate at your own risk. That said… here’s what we do know regarding sightings, facts, or what have you for Old White Oak Cemetery.

  1. Figures in black cloaks have been seen. We’ve gotten this report a lot throughout the years. In fact I only thought it myth until during one trip a few years ago I found a black cloak and red candled presumably left behind.
  2. The most reported sighting is that of “Old Jack”. Typically between the two trees in the near-middle of the cemetery (one has the Old White Oak sign on it). He’s also been reported to not be very gentle with women. Even investigators in PPS have said they’ve had their hair pulled, feeling as if they were being shoved, and once someone fell straight to the ground.
  3. Another common subject reported to us is the feeling that “something followed you home”.
  4. It’s one of two “witches graveyards” here in Paulding County. Supposedly there’s a witch buried at Old White Oak. Probably just one of those old urban (rural?) legends but it’s been a thing since before I was even born. She’s said to be buried in the far right corner of the cemetery if you’re facing it from the road.
  5. There are/were roughly 75-100 grave markers but supposedly there are nearly 200 people buried here. We base this number on some paperwork that has been presented to us. If true, where are the others buried?

This is mostly about the most common things related to Old White Oak Cemetery. Like we’ve gotten a couple reports of Civil War era soldiers seen marching on the road but too few to mention. I’m sure I’m missing a few things and if or when they come to mind I’ll add to this list but I wanted to clear a few things up. Some local stories have been brought to our attention that, as far as we know, have never been a part of the mythos surrounding this graveyard. We wanted to put something out there so you know where we stand. Feel free to shout out in the comments and tell us what you’ve experienced here, if anything at all!
