  1. As a child back in the middle 1950s I lived on E. Hazelhurst in Ferndale. At this time the Cemetery was partially dug up and graves were moved to widen Woodward Ave. I remember the workers putting up very high wooden fences so the construction could not be seen going on. The smell in the area was bad and I remember them having large fires behind the wooden fence at night. I have no idea if this has anything to do with the haunting or not but I am 71 years old and will never forget the smell.
