infamous pondby Der-Krampus

Near the Goodleberg Cemetery, South Wales, NY. Legends and tall tales surround the pond, it seems difficult to discern fact from fiction.
Apparently Dr. Albert Speaker lived in a house overlooking this pond, which is adjacent to the cemetery. Legend has it that the good doctor performed illegal abortions and buried the fetal remains and the occasional mother in or around the pond. There are many other lurid tales involving flood-waters revealing body parts and the doctor hanging himself from a tree in the cemetery to escape the shame of legal prosecution.
That seems to more fictional urban legend than fact.
The hard working people over at Dark Destinations have compiled an insightful article about the place, I encourage you to go check it out. [link]
