red lantern road, around hoopston illinios

In the early 1900,s a farmer and his wife lived in a two story house to the right of the road on night in the winter the farmer went outside with his red lantern to check on his cows after hours of waiting for her husband to return the wife went out to look for him but she to did not return to the house. when spring came and the snow melted the mutilated bodies of the farmer his wife and his cows were all found not far from the house. It is reported and from my own experience if you go down the road stop before the bridge that is next to the house you have to honk three times before u cross that bride if you do that after you cross you will see a light iin the house come down the stairs out the front door and float around your car and then it will go back in the house not to long after you will hear a woman scream to pay respect to the spirits you must honk three times before you cross back over the bridge to leave even though I was only a little girl at the time I know what I saw was true just ask the locals everybody around the area knows the story

The story I heard was different. NEW
by: Anonymous

This is called Lanterns Lane, not red lanterns road. Grew up in Milford since it's right outside of Milford, and the story I GREW UP HEARING, Was that yes, The old man went looking for his cattle as the storm had caused them to get loose. He went down the road, and turned right (which is now a field). Hours passed and he had not returned. So, his worried wife took it upon herself to search for him. She took the same path as him, going down the road and taking a right. From what I was told, they were never found.

I am from Ill. And I have been down this road and it is very true. It is very spooky when you go down that road at night.
