The Witch hated Deaf people at Gallaudet University

October 30, 2007

Written by Bug                            

 In 1893 there was an old witch lived in the woods behind Gallaudet University. She lived by herself and all the Deaf students around used to be in dread of her.  They said she was haunted. No one knew how long she lived, for she never left her home in the day but they said she used to go out through the fields near tower clock at night. She hated all Deafies because she was not able to sign very well. If a Deaf person walked by, with her sharp knife she cut off a hand of the person and he or she began to cry pitifully. No one was able to hear the Deaf victim’s cries because everyone was Deaf. 

Nearly every week some of the sign language book would be gone as she seemed to hope that Deaf world would die slowly.

A deaf man name of James, said he would know if she that was taking the sign language books. So he watched all night at the woods, and about twelve o’clock he saw an old lady come out of the house. The very minute she saw James, away would she across the field, but James fired, and struck it in the shoulder.

The next morning tracks of blood was seen along the road to the cabin. What did James do, but call to the cabin, and the door was barred from inside. But he shoved in the window, and sure enough, there was the old dame, and all her shoulder wrapped up in calico. She left the place shortly after, for she knew she was found out, and no one ever missed sign language books after. James walked throughout the cabin and found many hands of deaf victims in the hot pot. He collected them and brought to Gallaudet University and unwrapped the severed hands from the cloths and held it out buried around the Tower Clock.

Since then nothing unusual has happened at Gallaudet University.

    This is response to “Name withheld Upon Request”

    Are you trying to make fun of Agatha Tiegel Hanson, the first woman to graduate from Gallaudet (in 1893,) was the valedictorian of the class as well? Same lady who went on to be teacher at Minnesota School (now Academy) for the Deaf? Died in Portland Oregon 1959?

    Bug, you didn’t tell the remainder of the story! Let me do that now:

    The witch fled to another cabin which was owned by AGB. There, she was able to live out the rest of her days–but not without giving birth to a ghoulish baby. Her wound ultimately led to her demise, but her son (suspiciously conceived by the AGB himself, but no proof yet) lived on to wreak havoc by spreading oralism!

    It has not been confirmed, but the real horror of it all, is the fact that….

    …the son was the descendant of Jane K. Fernandes!

    I meant ancestor, relative, or progneitor, but you get the drift.

    I guess I have a bad story with a bad ending. Thank you for adding it to the end of my story. That’s funny.
