We did not capture any paranormal evidence to support the urban legend.

 

The urban legend as is follows:

SONESTOWN SPOOK SOLDIER (Sonestown, Sullivan County) This legend centers around a Civil War soldier that died in battle. His ghost has been spotted at two places.  First is his old home on Hoot Road, where he's said to return seeking his family.  Voices and footsteps have been reported by a variety of owners.  He's also been seen guarding theSonestown Covered Bridge, still protecting his family and home.

The Sonestown Covered Bridge is a Burr arch truss covered bridge over Muncy Creek in Davidson Township, Sullivan County, in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. Built circa 1850, the bridge is 110 feet (34 m) long, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1980.The bridge is named for the nearby unincorporated village of Sonestown in Davidson Township, and is also known as the Davidson Covered Bridge. It was built to provide access to a gristmill, which operated until the early 20th century.

We plan to return to the bridge in the spring of 2011 to do further testing.
