Abstract Interview of Judy Tippet by Chrystal Warf.

Interviewer's description-
"In this interview with Judy Tippet she told of how her parents and grandparents believed in ghosts and witches and passed this on to her. She really believes in superstitions, but only selected ones. She told about experiences she has had with the supernatural. She believes that God rules the world. She also told me about blood stopping, thrash and marking babies, which Appalachian people firmly believed in, years ago. I thought it would be interesting to get the views of a younger person and compare them with those of the old days. Ms. Tippet is the last of a dying breed."
