- Long ago there lived an old man by the of O'Shea. He was very old, and when he walked his head touched the ground.When he died his head wouldn't stay down, and he had to be strapped to the bed. The night he died the house was full of people, and one man made a joke by cutting the strap.When he did the man popped up, the people got a fright and ran out. It was very mysterious to see the man come to life as they thought.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
