    1. While walking through the graveyard at the back of it there was a old musky perfume smell. Didn’t think nothing about it until I read up more. Didn’t see anything or have any weird feeling but the smell was very strong.

    2. My preteen son and I were taking pictures of the cemetery and saw a jet black looking dog with pointy ears and red eyes. We left very quickly and did not understand what it was.
