The Chewy Road Encounter

I hope I can explain well enough in this email what happened on the Corner of Chewy Road, Adair County Oklahoma.

I will be speaking on behalf of mine and my families encounters together in this email and if you would like to know more, My mother and My aunt are ready to share as well as myself. Let me start with Our family home where we experienced these things was on an old Indian barrel ground which we always knew about living there. It always had an odd feel to it living there but we learned to live with it. We experienced constant Orbs, Shadows, Whispers, and more. I remember playing in my room at night with no curtains on my windows and having an overwhelming sense of fear that was so bad, I would bolt out of my room to a part of the house that didn’t have windows.

I never understood why I had those feelings at the time but I remember having the urgency to get out of my room. A feeling of being watched. My family was always used to those things (the paranormal) but it was the flesh and blood encounters that terrified us. My first encounter and my mothers second happened when I was 11 years old, We were walking from my grandmas house back to mine which took us maybe 3-4 minutes.

It was very late and pitch black, before we walked out my grandmas door, I felt the overwhelming fear again which I blew off ( I hated walking in the dark there) we walked out of the house with our two cats walking beside us, it was so quiet outside you could hear a pen drop, we started walking up the hill and about 4 feet in front us of was a tree full of birds, the birds in the tree started going crazy and they flew quickly out of the tree which startled us, after the birds started flying off my cats that were practically walking under our feet also took off, as soon as my cats bolted we heard what I can only explain as a huge lion.

The growl/Roar was so deep we could physically feel it in our bodies and it continued to get louder. My mother looked at me and told me not to run, even though I wanted to run for my life, I trusted her and quickly walked beside her. When we got to our yard where my papa previously hooked up a flood light just a month before this encounter. I took a deep breath and felt relieved when we got under that flood light in our own yard. I don’t know why I felt out of danger in the light but im assuming because I could finally see around me. My mother grabbed my hand and ran me into the house at that time. I was so scared I started to cry and begged my dad to come home from work. I never shook that feeling of fear.

It wasn’t until two years ago that My mother shared her own personal encounter with me. Hers happened one year before my own encounter when I was 10 years old. She was with a Co-worker getting a ride home from work and as they turned into our driveway her and the co-worker seen what she could only tell me was “something right out of the movies”. She said it was a real living werwolf. Her description of it was around 6 ft tall, black hair, giant head, small waist with ears, and a snout . She kept telling me it was a Bigfoot but im really not sure.

I can’t seem to find any Bigfoot descriptions like that, But I could be wrong. Im still learning. Anyways her and that Co-worker were so frightened that they looked at each other and neither of them said a word. The Bigfoot ran across the street on two legs into the woods. My mom didn’t want to get out of the car but when she finally did she bolted into the house and never said a word. So when me and my mother had our encounter together that next year,She knew exactly what it was that roared at us, and that’s why we also got flood lights in that same year. Im glad she didnt tell me what she saw when I was a child. But as an adult I’m just as scared. When she shared her own encounter with me, she also explained to me that the night it roared at us, she knew it was behind the house, which was directly behind us. That’s why she told me not to run that night, she knew what it was and she knew where it was standing. I think that scares me the most.

The paranormal encounters in our home didn’t give me fear like whatever that flesh and blood thing was. I’m scared of the dark as an adult because of it. I always keep my curtains closed at night now and I haven’t had that feeling of being watched since moving away from there. But this is mine and my mothers encounters, now I will share my aunts own encounter on behalf of her, for this email. Hers is short but very scary. She’s extremely traumatized still.

This happened in the early 2000s, She had picked up her grandson and he was sleeping in the back seat while was taking a backroad home, she was driving quickly and was coming around the corner when she noticed something giant and harry on the side of the road. She thought it was a man until getting closer, as she finally had driven right up to it by which this time she said it was was standing in the middle of the road. She slammed her breaks to not hit it and when she realized how giant this thing was she was in complete fear. She quickly realized it was NOT a human but something else. As her car stopped directly in front of it the Bigfoot slammed both of its hands on the hood of her car while making noises. She was in complete shock and was so scared she actually reversed the whole way back off the road. She never spoke about it for years after that and never drove that road ever again. She said it was an animal, brown long hair, very large, very scary face, huge and it looked like a giant ape.

I can get better descriptions from my mother and aunt if you are interested. I’m not a very good writer. I hope I explained well enough and also, if you ever want to know of places that are full of encounters of all sorts, look into Adair county-Stilwell OK, its where I live still with my husband and children.(just in town now) We are Cherokee and the people around here all have stories and encounters for days. Weird things happen here in Adair CO Oklahoma. Unexplainable things. Also look into Beaver Gap. That’s one place people that live here refuse to go. Although its down the road from my town. My family will not go near it.”

    I live in Watts , Oklahoma just minutes away from Chewey Road. I still have friends who live in Chewey and I gotta say I’ve always been nervous driving on that road at night. I always leave with daylight to get home. It’s really spooky

    I was raised one county to the west, in Cherokee County. My siblings and I had a terrifying experience while hiking on the Illinois River there, several miles downstream from Chewey. We rounded a bend in the river and heard what sounded like a lion’s deep roar come from the woods right in front of us. It was so loud and terrifying, and sounded really close. We ran away from it as fast as we could (I know now that that was probably not the best way to respond). I’ll never forget that fear.

    Stilwell and Adair County was the end point of the horrific episode in our early country know as the Trail of Tears. Perhaps this may account for the high strangness/paranormal activity the OP stated at the beginning.

      Myself exactly! Thx for coming forward. Hope this experience with Wes will help you get over the trauma. I love Oklahoma. I love the Cherokee people. My friend’s husband is Cherokee. He drives to OK from Kansas to receive medical care. Anyway, I can’t wait. Thx again! _m
