By Lisa Martin on October 18, 2004
Format: Paperback
Days before the Great Flood of 1913 ravaged the midwest, America was morbidly fascinated with the mysterious disapearance from New Castle, Indiana, of a 9-year-old towhead named Catherine Winters.

Theories abounded about what had happened to the little girl. Gypsies had carried Catherine away, some townsfolk claimed. A dark-coated stranger abducted her as she walked along Broad Street selling papers of needles, some suggested. Others speculated that Catherine had been trapped after falling into a nearby gravel pit, her body washed away in muddy floodwaters that crippled much of the midwest for weeks to come.

In her book, Haunted Henry County, lifelong New Castle resident Charlene Zornes Perry recounts detail by detail the true events of the last day Catherine was seen, setting to rest which of the theories were most plausible and why. Perry's work reflects more than two decades of intense research on the still-open case, which was eventually labeled a murder by New Castle authorities.

Simply by presenting the nearly century-old story in her own matter-of-fact and straightforward manner, Perry sets the record straight about strange, and perhaps more relevant, facts surrounding the girl's disappearance---in the end, considering a lesser-known theory, one only furtively whispered in hushed tones behind closed Henry County doors.

Perry utilizes this same carefully-researched sense of the telling detail to extract the most compelling truths surrounding more than 30 legends that grew from this central Indiana county that sits midway between Indianapolis and Richmond on Interstate 70, and the counties surrounding it.

As far as Henry County (and all of central Indiana) ghost stories are concerned, this book is as comprehensive as I've ever seen. I was born and raised in Henry County, and still live here, and I have heard a lot of the stories going around. I've been to a lot of the sites mentioned. Ms. Perry did a wonderful job covering the history, both factual and reported. The grammatics and punctuation leave something to be desired, but it is nothing that hindered my enjoyment of these stories.

I think this book is the best! When I came across this book, I was shocked. I have always loved the unknown, and mysteries have been my fetish. I would have to say this book is a "got to read".

I found this book enlightening because it discussed my great grandmother, Goldie Adams Kiplinger, and touched some on her psychic abilities that the family had known and seen over the years before she passed away many years ago. Several of these, (and other), stories are passed down through the generations of our family...what a "jewel" to have had her in our family! Thank you Charlene for your writing talents. I also enjoyed several of the other stories located in Henry County!
