In August of 1887 while driving a load of wheat to Logan, newlyweds 19 year-old Clara and 29 year-old Johannes Bensenhafer began to cross Scotts Creek, only to have their wagon slip into what is known as the "Death Hole", a 15 foot pool with undertow. Tragically, they both drowned. After, people swore they heard the sound of ghostly chatter of the couple along Scotts Creek Road and the creek itself. Then, they would hear the horses screaming in the area and saw a woman walking by the water.
