Epilogue
They say that every legend has some basis in fact. This is the legend of Creepy Hollow...

In the 1800's, much of this land was farmed by a man named Elias Atrum. Not much was known about Old Eli (as the locals came to call him), since he kept pretty much to himself; but we know that he was born July 2, 1819; he had a strict upbringing by rigid and distant parents--and that's being charitable. Obedience was demanded, failure was punished, and discipline was severe. As he was an only child, Eli grew up very much alone. The farm was the extent of his world. Contact with folks in town, even with neighbors, was discouraged. Necessary travel was all that was allowed.

When Eli's parents died in the late 1850's, and the farm became his, Eli was already in his late 30's. It looked as if his loneliness ended when Norah, the pretty young daughter of a neighboring farmer invited Eli to come courting; some said that Norah's father had his eye on acquiring Eli's land through marriage...but Eli didn't care. For the first time, he was actually happy (though his upbringing left him poorly equipped to show it).

Sadly, Eli's inability to express affection wore quickly on his young bride. They were childless. Whatever Norah's father's true motives may have been for tying his daughter to an emotional vacuum like Eli, they died with him when he had a sudden and massive heart attack. Eli now controlled Norah's family's farm as well, and he expanded.
