This graveyard is said to be haunted by the ghost of Mary Jane, also known as Bloody Mary. It is not the same Mary Jane/Bloody Mary at Cry Baby Bridge in Mansfield. Rather, this Bloody Mary character was a witch who was purportedly burnt at the stake. This story behind the Lucas Cemetery haunting takes place in the 1800’s. After Bloody Mary was buried, a tree near her grave with her name etched into it would “bleed”. There is no tombstone marking her gravesite, just the tree.
