If you want to get even more in depth with the storyline behind the terrifying rural farm, the website states....
"When the beautiful Missy Mae Lively spurned her arranged marriage in favor of Billy Joe Tate, the young lovers knew they must keep their plans secret. Missy Mae spent many hours locked in her room sewing the delicate white dress she wore the night she left to elope with Billy, but alas, Billy never came. Night after night she waited at the appointed meeting place beneath the tree where Billy Joe had carved their names. Billy Joe was never seen again and his body was never found. Rumors persist to this day. Some say that he met his demise at the hands of Missy Mae’s betrothed but most believe her brothers carried out the deed. What is known for sure is that through the years the authorities were alerted to many gruesome scenes at the Lively Farm. While all were ruled accidental, neighbors believed that the tragedies that beset the Lively family were the result of Missy Mae’s deranged mind. Neighbors often report seeing a young woman in a long white dress."
