The story of Gypsies Graveyard started in the mid 1800's The story tells the tale of a group of Vistani or best known as "Gypsies". The local male residents started to trade with the group, but the woman had a problem with the Gypsies. The booze, pipe weed, and exposure to early prostitution made them run to the churches screaming "The Devil was here". Sometime in the early 1820's a form of plague ran through the camp. Some guess that the women of the town gave the Gypsies used blankets from plagued towns. Since most women worked with the dead at that time, while men went to war. This same tactic was to be used later in the Civil War to kill off Indians. When word spread to the town the people demanded that the Gypsies leave before they infect the town. The leader of the Gypsies pleaded with the town to have a week to gather themselves and allow some to rest up before leaving. The town saw it other wise and demanded they leave or be forced out. The Gypsy cursed the people of the area and left in the middle of the night. When the town’s people went back to the campsite, there were graves and graves. The Gypsies had buried their dead and left. Some graves were not mark and later destroyed. The town turned the area into a graveyard and added there own. i got the info from Google.
