I used to drive to Kennesaw every afternoon using Cherokee St in Marietta. For those familiar with this road, which is close to Marietta's historic square, you'll know that it is on a historic neighborhood with big homes, some dating back to the middle and late 1800s.
On one occasion driving on Cherokee St I saw a young black girl, maybe just 8 years old, walking along the pavement. The stunning thing about her was her appearance and that she was alone at so young... She wore a gown or dress which looked very dirty and torn. It should have been white but it was very dirty. She wore no shoes, had short natural hair and looked extremely distressed. As I looked in the rear view mirror she was nowhere to be seen... I was so shocked that I almost went off the road... I had to keep driving and maintain composure.
The shock was she looked like she belonged to another time... I told my family about this and my older sister was amazed because she saw her too... Weeks earlier at the exact location and described every thing I saw. My guess is it was a residual haunting... Maybe a slave girl? Has anyone in the area ever seen her? I've never heard of this account anywhere else and I've searched the Internet for a long time with no results. I experienced this in 2007 off Cherokee Street just before getting to the Kennestone Hospital on the same road. I never saw her again... But it was a traumatic experience even if it only lasted a few seconds. My sister seeing her too at a separate time gave both of us chills. Did I see a spirit?
