"Up after it was caught in a storm. Yeah. Herman still stayed in the business until one dark night in nineteen twelve Herman was in his prime is ship captain, and he departed for very late November voyage from Wisconsin to Chicago, which was very dangerous because there would be a lot of storms and stuff around that time lot of snow, right? So the weather was extremely rough. It was fully loaded with an oversize load of trees some reports say that there were fifty five hundred trees on the ship. Yeah. That's a lot of trees, and when the ship left, the harbour that day people have stated that the rats that were on board in their on board a lot of ships, especially back, then started to leave the ship, and that is considered a very bad sign for sailor animals. No, they do like forest fires and earthquakes and all that stuff. They get out. They were really, you know, they they sense it. Yeah. Definitely seen that yet. Yeah. It's a shame that we don't think like them. I see Recco. And but I mean, if you see a wreck going in one direction, you're probably not gonna foul. That's I want to do with the acts. Navy this rats are. All right. Yeah. But maybe we should be following the leave us alone though. But you know, he probably should have known because the weather was extremely rough. You know, he was going on at three hour tour. So no, I'm just kidding. But not much is known of what exactly happened to the rue Simmons on that trip. But lifesaving station. Logs testified that a two fifty PM on Saturday November twenty third a surf man at the. Kiwani Wisconsin station alerted the station. Keeper kept in Nelson crate the rouse. Simmons was spotted heading south flying its flag at half mast, which is a sign of distress crate try to find a tugboat to help the rue Simmons. But the tugboat had already won out the morning and was not near the area. The rue Simmons drifted out of you and little is known of the exact moment of the ship's final demise. But it is believed that the ship was too heavily overburden and combined with the fierce winter storm. It was just too much for the ship. Herman's wife, Barbara waited at the dock the day. She expected to see her husband, but he did not make it. This was not uncommon though in those days ships would sometimes bunker down in a local port when there was a bad storm incite in Herman had done this multiple times. But as days turned into weeks, she knew she would not see him again the next few weeks. Wisconsin residents reported seeing remains of Christmas trees drifting onto nearby beaches. That's she wasn't. She didn't wait a the dot for days. No, no, no. She only waited they're short while. Okay. And then she figuring achieve visited every day. I'm sure I'm sure she did and in nineteen twenty four. So that happened in nineteen twelve so twelve years later, a fishing vessel pulled up its net to find a wallet wrapped in oilskin. It was the wallet of captain Herman Scheunemann. I've also heard that a bottle carrying a message drifted onto shore carrying a message from captain Scheunemann, saying his parting words of goodbye. Barber in the kids carried on the tradition of selling Christmas trees in honor of of Herman oftentimes from a boat docked on Clark street in when Barbara met her end in nineteen thirty three daughters continued selling them as well from their family lot. In nineteen seventy one. The wreck itself was discovered discovered by scuba diver named Gordon Kent bell rich from from the walkie their cans. We had a plan. He was searching for another wreck vessel, and he knew right away that this was the Christmas ship because he saw several Christmas trees in the ship's. Hold. It has been said that over the years a couple of ghostly things have happened though. I'll here we go spire in the ghost part. It's not just as sad story. It's got a it's got a ghostly part. I is that when people visit the grave grave of Barbara Scheunemann in the wintertime there is often a faint smell of evergreen trees. Although no one around our there's none around her grave and on the second ghostly occurrence is that people have reported seeing three masted old timey sailboat in Lake Michigan in sometimes here phantom bells, which is the last sound that is heard from a sinking ship. Yeah. It's really sad. And then doesn't he have a Ziva grave by his wife? I mean, not with his body. But yeah, I I would imagine the body is not there. Yeah. Do they know what kind of message was sent? And yet, it was basically saying goodbye, it was it reported that Friday. It was time to say goodbye in that the that the ship was overburdened, and it was going down. And he mentioned two of his shipmates that you know, that had escaped they were never found. So it wasn't a pine Kuna bottle. No, not a pinecone in a bottle. If it was overweighted. I mean, you think rose raw roll them off. They were greedy degreed probably got the best of them nine. They wanted to give it to the needy bell. So they're not around. Yeah. I just figured you know, he already went bankrupt with his other. Yeah. It was like, you know, what I need every pine tree. I can get this. Life's worth. I mean, this is this is what he did to people loved him for this. But maybe taking off. Yeah. Definitely definitely. And that was probably the problem is that he, you know, his eyes were were really big. Yeah. Bigger than his wallet. Every single tree looks like a one dollar builder. Yeah. The most expensive tree. Oh, well, this was nineteen twelve twelve. So a dollar was a what? Yeah. And he had sticks and sticks our bills. Yeah. Yeah. I mean the Christmas mood now. Yeah. Ghost christmas. I like it. All right. So does anybody have anything to add? I was just wondering back to the PLO. Yes. Had for benchers grove AO. I don't really wanna talk about that eleven percent of the people. You said didn't or were unsure. No, they were. They said no that it's not haunted. So those eleven percent have never been there. Yeah. And twenty two percent that are unsure right? Yes. They have never been there. Yeah. Well, that's actually forty forty four percent are kind of on the two two scales of they're not sure. So I believe none of them have ever stepped foot in the benchers grove. So maybe that should be another pull out of the people that voted. Have they ever been there? Well, we're we're gonna have some polls for this episode to I don't know exactly what they're going to about since. We're not doing a debate. But we have to hear favorite go story, which one is your favorite. Yeah. It's going to be killed. Prices the mistletoe Brian. It's kept in Santa. Look at Mondo. He so nice. Yeah. He's not. All right.
