Further on Fayette Factor

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 11th, 2012

Eric Altman is in the midst of a new 2012 cryptid investigation in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, again. More on that soon. But in the meantime…there’s the matter of that name, in general. Search the archives at Cryptomundo to discover “Fayette” variations turn up a lot in sightings.

Over the weekend, I revisited the “Fayette Factor,” with a flashback revision and image updates, at my Twilight Language blog, for those interested in that “name game.”

“In the southwest angle of Arkansas is a Bigfoot hotspot that has been immortalized–in America, at least– by the (1974) movie The Legend of Boggy Creek. The critters have been known hereabouts since 1856, centering their activities lately upon the town of Fouke in Miller County and ranging eastward into Lafayette County.” ~ Jim Brandon (author of Weird America and The Rebirth of Pan)

Fayette, Maine, is a hotspot of weird reports for the Pine Tree State. What have you noticed about your “Fayette” locations?

Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969.

He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.

    I can’t believe you posed this question, Loren, for my personal squatch sighting came right next to Lafayette Campground.

  2. PoeticsOfBigfoot responds:

    LaFayette, TX, is in Upshur County, where quite a few Bigfoot sightings have been reported. Its population is down to about 45 people or so, I think.
