The story of Mary Jane's Grave is a MYTH! There is absolutely no truth to the story of her being a witch burned or hung to death.

Mary Jane lived in Hastings and died of a cancerous tumor and dropsy, according to her obituary printed in the 03-10-1898 edition of the Bellville Messenger. She was not hung, as stories tell. The obituary states that she lived with her sister and brother-in-law, Sophia & Samuel Secrist for more than 16 years. She is buried next to them. She was the daughter of William A. & Mary Ann (Drake) Hendrickson, whom are both buried in the Bellville Cemetery located in Belleville, OH. Mary Jane was an 11 year member of the Evangelical Association.
