Groundskeeper Turfington
#L4 in My Macabre McMorbidly Family Portrait Series
He was the husband of gardener Thornelia. A crazed destroyer of all things floral, he loved frightening citizens of nearby Perilous Downs by carving grim shapes into their corn fields with his rusty long scythe, whistling off key tunes while he labored. He and his wife are believed to have made up the servant Cryptopher in a darkly genius plan to get paid extra money by the family for services rendered. He wore an old musty drapery cloth shroud and adapted Cryptopher as an alter ego. True? Study the portraits and judge for yourself.
The McMorbidly Family Portraits were discovered in a battered and moldy sealed trunk, which had somehow wound up below the root system of a huge black tree on the grounds of McMorbidly Manor (Now in Ruins). With each photo was a mysterious description written in jittery script by persons unknown. The portraits and paper were dated back to the mid to late 1800's. Who was the artist/photographer? How had history forgotten such an infamous and lengthy family legacy? We may never know but pay close attention as each family member and their stories from all their past generations are revealed!
