A Town's Nightmare
Alan R. Martin
Pastor Albert mentioned a minister who was slain in 1846 during the proclamation of changing religious beliefs. He was educated and tortured during his departure. The man changed indoctrination during his tenure. He went from Catholic to Protestant. This was when the frightful adventure started, in 1847, and his name was Pastor Matthew.
Hendrick Elias Leckner was a former pastor of the Catholic faith, the one who made a pact with the devil.
"If someone changed their faith, then I give intermission for the devil to extinguish ten people in a two-week period every ten years."
And he sold his soul for this admonishment, an agreement between him and the devil.
