If you ever find yourself in a place called Liberty Hill, located in Northern Austin, TX, I suggest you make a stop at Bittick Cemetery. Most likely one grave will stand out among the rest. There are various legends attached to this grave. The general story begins with a black woman named Elizbeth Sampson. In the 17-1800s, this slave was accused of being a witch. However, such an accusation wasn't enough to seal the deal on her death. It is believed Elizbeth stole a horse in order to escape and was captured. As it was done in those days, prisons and juries were tossed away for a good ole hanging. The tree used still stands to this day (supposedly across from the cemetery). After being buried, "Was borne and dide, But remember as yo are passing by, Yo all shall die as well as I" was carved in to her headstone.
If you choose to visit her grave, you must bring an offering of some sort. It's believed if you don't, something devastating will happen to you. On Halloween night, people claim to hear the witch (a wailing as it is often described) and sometimes see her hanging in the tree of which she was hung from. Some say if you take her headstone and throw it in the nearby river and it is back in its rightful place the next day (though I don't recommend anyone actually testing this theory).
