The Many Faces of the Bell Witch

This is one of the accounts of the Bell Witch that is often overlooked or underplayed - even I had forgotten about this part of the tale until reading about it earlier:

Some time after the events began, the Bell Witch decided to claim that she was, in fact, Kate Batts' "witch," saying, "It was she, dancing around a pentagram, who conjured me here."

Shortly thereafter, The Spirit claimed to be four, seperate entities: Black Dog (after John Bell's first encounter with the Spirit - the black "dog" he shot at on his property), Cypocryphy, Jerusalem, and Mathematics.

Of these, Black Dog was the most heinous and violent and took charge of the other voices, but according to the school teacher, they were all one and the same. Even though they each were slightly different, they were all strongly feminine in quality.

Sometimes, all four voices would get into "drunken brawls" and alternate. Often, beyond the cacophony, could be heard the sound of pots and pans clanging and dogs barking.

All of this behavior is far beyond what is normally associated with poltergeist activity.
