Subject: RE: Help: Follow the Drinking Gourd meanings
The man who was killed was a slave. It may have been an accident or a murder. we just dont know for sure. Anyway, the spirit was not a bad guy, it had a sense of humor, never threw anything at someones head etc. The penny I picked up was an Indian head, I dont remember the date, but, all the others he kept were very old. Not knowing his name, they simply called him "pinky"
