“He’s soulless?” Dean reaffirmed with Cas, both of you completely shocked. You had known something was wrong with Sam, but you hadn’t expected it to be something like this.

“I’m afraid so. I think when he was pulled out of hell, his soul was left behind.” Cas explained, before coming over to stand next to you and Dean. “And as much I want to be here, I need to get back to heaven. Can I have my coat back.”

Dean shook himself out of his shock then, taking off his flannel shirt and handing it to you so Cas could have his coat back. Turning your back on them, you switched coverings, your hands still shaking. Glancing down you saw bruises and scratch marks on your chest, and the sight had you hyperventilating. “Woah, Y/N, calm down.” Dean said, helping you slide on his shirt, keeping his eyes on your face.

Mary Nasson - known also by legend as “The White Witch” - was a respected herbalist in her small town of York, Maine. She had also been skilled in performing exorcisms. 

Legend claims that Mary was executed for being a witch. Her grave is the only one of its kind in this cemetery, in which there is a headstone, a footstone, and a heavy stone slab covering the ground over her body. It is rumored that the stone slab (which is also said to emit heat) was placed over her grave to keep her from getting out. However, historians disagree, claiming that her husband placed the slab there in order to keep cattle from damaging the grave.

There’s so many sad stories from the 1800s. Infant mortality was very high.
Here then is a short history of the Parson family. The monument on the right is for the Reverend John Parson and his wife. At 90 years of age, John passed away in March of 1910. His wife Sarah lived on another 9 months before passing away in December of the same year at 82 years. But sadly, back in 1873 they had lost all of their children, Abby, Usher and Georgie. The children’s grave is the left monument in the picture. They all perished in a period of 58 days during the months of August and September of that year. God was very unkind to this Reverend and his wife. And they lived on for almost 30 years after the death of their children.
