Nearly a half-century ago, the smoldering embers of a rural church gave birth to a legend—a legend that has since been passed down among the residents of Mason County. The church’s former preacher, it is said, was buried in the nearby cemetery under a tree, where he could forever tend his flock. Anyone brave enough to walk to the back of the cemetery and knock on the tree would be treated to the sound of the preacher’s voice calling out from the grave. This is the story of Bishop-Zion Cemetery!

From “The Fallen Investigate”:
The two made their way back to the front of the cemetery, where they noticed a white, two door sedan parked next to Aurelia’s Buick. Alarmed, they picked up their pace and burst out of the tree line. There, in front of the gates, they saw a man in the advanced stages of baldness, dressed in khakis and a polo shirt, talking with Aurelia, Davin, and Misa. He held a microcassette recorder in his hand.
“The name’s Fess Parker,” the man said enthusiastically when he saw Greg and Emmer emerge from the woods. He held out his hand, but no one took it. “Can I ask you guys a few questions? I won’t take up much of your time.”
Greg glanced over at Aurelia. “Who is this guy?”
“A reporter,” she replied with a touch of disgust. “From the… what was it? The Paranormal Review and Gazette?” She folded her arms across her orange tank top, the hem of which just touched the waistline of her ankle length, red skirt.
Greg Says: “Even though we found what we were looking for at Bishop-Zion, we definitely experienced a setback with Mike’s arrest. Now we’re being hounded by a reporter – things have never looked worse for us, but I think we’ll pull through. Read the latest issue to find out what happened!”
