Describe sighting in detail:
That summer my sister and cousin were checking out my sisters new car. It was close to 9:00pm and we lived on a dead end road that borders Mingo Swamp. There is a lot of forest area that surrounded our house. We had the only light pole at the time to give any light. It was very dark there at night.
My sister decided to drive the car up the road and my cousin went with her. She had her lights on bright and had passed my grandparents road.
There is a field of corn on one side of the road and a nursery on the other. As they neared the nursery barn, they noticed a huge white figure step out of the corn. It may have been 30 yards ahead.
Both said this 8 foot white hairy looking creature with a cone shaped head stepped quickly across the road.Her lights that were able to show enough across the road that they saw the white figure start to run into the darkness beyond the fence.
They looked at each other shocked. Locked the doors and quickly as they could turned around in the narrow road.
I remember they both came in talking fast and looked quite scared. My younger cousin kept saying that they had seen a monster cross the road. My sister described what she saw. It walked upright on two legs. We questioned them for awhile about deer. Finally we cracked a few jokes and forgot about it.
Not too long after that late one night my brother heard the dogs raging outside. He thought maybe someone was messing around the house. He went to the back door and turned on the light. He then went back to get his gun and investigate. As he walked back into the kitchen, he said he saw a large white hairy figure cross right by the glass door. It unnerved him I think but he went out and saw the dogs had moved to edge of the woods like they were following something. He said they would not go any further than the backyard.
When he and I were both walking around the nursery many years before, we were talking and my brother got really quite. He was looking into some of the saplings and bushes growing in the nursery. He looked disturbed. I ask him what was wrong. He said he saw a white face looking at him from out of those trees. I asked what he meant? All he could describe was a white face with red eyes.
We lived 14 miles from Flintville, Tn. and a few miles further from Kelso were there were reports in the 70s to 90s.A white creature has been seen in Kelso. We were not far from the Elk River. A lot of woods, hills, water, and farmland. There is a large deer population. And a friend of mine camped by the river one night and said he heard a huge splash. He had been asleep in the cab. The fire outside had died down to coals. He started hearing small rocks like hitting the outside of his truck. He heard a few footsteps. In a little while a huge black shape crossed in front of the coals. He claims their was enough light from the moon that he watched this huge black shape walk pass the cab. A little later it walked past the other side. Then everything was quite for the rest of the night.

I recently received an update from Cary. He has taken some photos of the area. Here is what he said and the photos.
"This is Cary who gave you the account of the white Bigfoot recently in Franklin County Tennessee. I went to the place and took a couple photos of place were the Bigfoot was sighted years ago by my sister. The first photo is the road and where my sister had come to almost a halt in the road when she saw it step out. To the right was where the old cornfield was and now grown up with some pretty good size saplings. Just ahead to the right is where it stepped out from cornfield into the road. The second photo I walked down to the exact spot she showed were the creature crossed and is a picture looking out into the old nursery that it began to run. Thanks, Cary "
Here are the 2 pictures that Cary sent in.
Once again, a big thanks to Cary for following up with some photos of the area.
