    1. I saw the lady crying and i did not know at the time she was a ghost so I kneeled down by her and tried to comfort her she looked at me and said leave and never come back

    2. Just got back from there. After the ‘Lady in Black ‘ story had been debunked, we were still interested enough to check it out. .No indications of any kind on a tri-field meter. No indications of any RF anomalies from 3MHZ to 3GHZ. Nothing in photographic images nor in FLIR images. No odd odors, no eerie feelings, in short nothing.

    3. Was there earlier this morning. Going into the Forestry my fog lamps went out….about .3 miles away we noticed my tail lights went out and then my gas light came on, althought I had a 1/4 tank left and my readout said 105 miles left. We finally reacched the cemetery but kept driving. Didnt want to risk being stuck out here if some was wrong my car. By the time we got back to 37 my tailights and foglamps were working again. And my tank was back to usual.

    4. Been there, Sat on the stump, seen the fresh dug up dirt on the baby’s grave, seen the black lady, Sen the swings at the park just around the bend from there start full on swinging and heard the kids laughing, seen someone standing under the shelter house next to the swings, climbed the water tower before it was tore down, and went to draper’s cabin and felt extremely unwanted and very bad at the cabin.

    5. I went around midnight and I saw a lady in black kneeling over a headstone. I walked slowly toward her, and she sprang up. I ran as fast as I could to my car to get out of there.

    6. Went there late this afternoon, right before dark. It’s a beautiful and interesting place but I have to say, I’m sensitive. I exoected to experience something after the stories I’ve heard but I felt absolutely nothing but peace there. It’s tranquil.
