Ghosts of Ebo Landing
St. Simons Island GA 31522
Tradition has it that during St. Simons Island's plantation era, many slaves were brought ashore along Dunbar Creek. It was here that the members of the Ibgos (pronounced e-bo, the "g" is silent) - a proud and noble tribe from Nigeria, were brought ashore. The manacled tribesmen followed their chief into the muddy waters of Dunbar Creek, rather than submit to a life of slavery. Eminating from the marsh, it is reported that one may hear the unsettling sounds of chains rattling, and voices chanting, "The sea brought me and the sea will take me home," in their native African tongue.
