The latest book from Southern writer and historian Dale Cox, The Ghost of Bellamy Bridge:
Ten Stories of Ghosts & Monsters from Jackson County, Florida
is a fun, chilling and
adventurous journey into the folklore and legends of Florida's third oldest county.

The book focuses on the remarkable legend of the Ghost of Bellamy Bridge, a story many
believe to be Florida's most famous ghost story. Cox opens his investigation with the much
loved legend of young Elizabeth Jane Bellamy, the 18-year-old bride of a wealthy doctor. She
supposedly died in a wedding night tragedy and now haunts the environs of a nearly century
old bridge that spans the Chipola River north of Marianna, Florida.

From there the authors digs deep into the real history of the legend and unveils a story that
is even more fascinating and more tragic than the folk told that has been told in Jackson
County for decades.

The book also offers the first serious historical treatment of some of Jackson County's little
known but fascinating tales of the supernatural, the strange and the mysterious.  Other
stories include:

  • The Two Egg Stump Jumper
  • The Wild Man of Ocheesee Pond
  • The Ghosts of the Russ House
  • The Ghost of the Ely-Criglar Mansion
  • The Ghost of St. Luke's Episcopal Church
  • The Graceville Spook Lights
  • The Headless Indian Chiefs of Sneads
  • The Aycock Ghosts
  • The Ghosts of Old Parramore
