HAUNTED MICHIGAN: The ‘Witch’ of Soop Cemetery

In Belleville there’s a cemetery – “Soop” Cemetery – where legend states that a woman who practiced witchcraft is buried there…and spends her afterlife scaring the bejeebers out of visitors.

The woman’s name was Elizabeth Soop, a member of the family from whom the cemetery got it’s name. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, the fact remains that this woman did practice dark witchcraft during her lifetime, although it’s disputed by current relatives.

Elizabeth’s tombstone is toward the back end of the graveyard, next to that of her husband Frederick (SEE THE STONES IN THE PHOTO GALLERY ABOVE).

Curious visitors who attempt an investigation late at night claim to have been followed by human shadowy figures that are 3-4 feet tall. Others say they were followed by disembodied footsteps, heard voices (with and without EVP equipment), saw floating colored lights and other occurrences that freaked ’em out…could be their imaginations, but then again, maybe not.

Soop Cemetery is in Belleville on Old Denton Road, a dirt road off of Denton Road, just off I-94 (THE PHOTO GALLERY ABOVE SHOWS THE LOCATION).

Remember, when you visit any cemetery, treat it with respect: don’t litter, don’t vandalize, observe closing time and don’t be obnoxious.
