Does anyone know any stories of ghosts or haunting's in Forsyth county, Georgia or in the Cumming area? I know the Booger Mountain story but any others would be great. I am working on a history project for school.

I like the concept you seem to be using for your history project, since many local ghost stories and other legends tend to be rooted in history (even if the history might end up a bit shaky down the generations due to the 'telephone effect').

While I live in Canada, and am not sure which part of Georgia that Forsyth County and the Cumming area is, and can't think of any tales off the top of my head, I can direct you to a variety of books that might be a good starting point for you in addition to what our members in that region might know.

Note that I found these books on Amazon's Canadian site, so check the US site, as well as other bookstores and the local library. And because of my lack of geographical knowledge, some of these books might not actually cover the region you are looking at, for that I apologize!
