  1. i have lived in Port Clinton my whole life an iv been to Johnsons Island a few times I’m my adult life. one time I was there with my family an I was just taking pictures of the cemetery I wasn’t on a ghost hunt at all!! just a family outing. my mother started to get really bad head pain so she went sit on the bench right out side of the grate of the cemetery an she was sitting there an she was taking pictures of us walking around she said she felt much better once she got out of the gate,,(didn’t think anything of it at the time) but when we got home we put the pictures on the computer so we could see them better an bigger on the screen. most of them were of just the family an we go to the end when she was leave the gate in the bushes behind one of us was a soldier he seemed to be sitting or cruched down on the ground he was so plane in the picture as if someone was really sitting there. we all just looked at it for a long time. we went back to see if we could see any thing else in the others pictures one also had a black mass hanging out by the same spot. it got the best of m so I had to go back an see what was over there but there w as nothing there it was in the bushes but in the fence on the other side was the graves an one was an unnamed soldier. we also was running a camera at the time an in the back ground you can hear a whistle not a person but like a steam boat or a steam train not the sound of any train you hear around here that is for sure an you can hear it for a long time on the tape. sadly the pictures cant be found now of the soldier that we did take but we know what was in that picture!!

  2. I have been to Johnsons island several times !!! It is heavily haunted. The cemetery has various tempature changes in it as you walk thru. You can hear solders marching sometimes late at nite. Even had a ball of fire in the sky follow us acrossed the bridge and disappear
