    1. I’ve been out here multiple times. I’ve gotten some pictures suggestive of a strong maybe as far as a haunting goes but ultimately what keeps me coming back is the vibe I get when I enter that gate. There’s something in that cemetery. It isn’t too keen on putting on a show, but that cemetery has an intense “You’re not alone” and” Go now” feeling with it. I’ve never actually seen the gates move but occasionally they are open upon arrival. There’s some macabre vandalism to add to the discomfort… angels with heads broken off, stones split in half. This is a well known location. People do drive back here to A. Find the lady in white or B. Find people trying to find the lady in white. On one occasion I drove back there and found teenagers stirring up trouble, running around stomping on graves in the hopes of attracting some ghosts. In short, don’t expect to be alone. I think there’s something there, but I have no physical evidence to back it up. Give it a shot.

    2. I went out there with a few friends. Had my headlights on my truck turn themselves off. Had to turn off my truck and back on to get them to turn back on. It’s an old truck with a manual pull switch. Never had that issue before or after that event. we all felt spooked and left

    3. My family, including my mother, is buried out there. It is a family cemetery. It’s not unusual for gates to be left open. But as far as the comments about people going out there to stomp on graves to wake the dead, in hopes of paranormal activity, I want you to know that it doesn’t sit too lightly with me knowing my family’s final resting place is being desecrated. Vandalism happens as well.
      Be careful what you wish for, you just may find what you are looking for one day. They call it a resting place for a reason. If you wake the dead, surely it won’t be a pleasant experience.

      • Yall also got a demonic bug problem to ive been out there twice all respect to your family but one day im going to investigate that grave yard. 2nd time went out there to peacefully look around an what not when a whole slur of random demonic bugs started attacking us.cool if I investigate?

    4. I’ve been out there numerous times. I have been told by a childhood friend and fellow paranormal researcher that he believed to have seen or been told of a manor of some sort that lies within the woods around the location. We were going to go back the following night to investigate but found ourselves vered by another agenda. However I would still love to investigate this location myself. The vibe alone in my opinion made it feel I was being watched and wasn’t alone by any means.

    5. Me and a couple friends went out here on Halloween night and we all got the same weird dangerous vibe while driving down the road to the cemetery. We didn’t actually go inside the cemetery this trip. We just kinda looked around. I did do a little experiment where I kept the car running but turned off all the lights with the back of the car facing the cemetery. Nothing happened during the few minutes of darkness but once the lights came back on we did have a weird thing happen that made us leave early. The gate to the cemetery had been knocked over prior to our arrival and as I was looking out my side mirrors I thought I saw it move. I told the guys with me but they thought I was just trying to scare them then it happened again and this time was no mistaking it moved like someone was pushing it back up. Could have been wind but I very much doubt it with no real resistance for wind to catch or heavy gusts capable of it. Needless to say we left after this. I plan to go back sometime soon

      • I have been metal detecting this sight. Found a baby ring ( silver ). Ring was made 1940. The “lost settlement of Fort Bayou” Is 100 yards from the front gate. South West From gate.Or go to big Oak Tree at the road go due South. Go to highest ground.
