    1. went there tonite. did not feel or see anything out of the normal. I have lived near there all my life and never heard of it until tonite.

    2. A friend told me about it. And we went . we walked all over it. Read some grave stones. Took a ball to see if it would move. Took some recordings. Nothing on it. Didn’t get a response I don’t think its haunted even turned off lights set there quit all herd was an Owl a cow in the distants and people talking from a near by house.limbs and nuts falling from trees. Nothing else even asked questions no reply. I don’t believe it is haunted.

    3. Could someone please take a photograph of Rev. James Pelan’s tombstone and send it to me at kevin AT James Pelan was murdered in 1863 and was buried in this cemetery. Thanks.

    4. I was there one day with my dad and my sister we were there looking at grave stones and felt I was being watched and had an eerie feeling I was standing by my self not too far from my dad and all of a sudden something touched me on my shoulder and I screamed and my dad asked what is wrong I said something touched me can we please leave he said sure let’s go

    5. I live here and have 5 generations of my family buried there. As will i myself. And if i catch anyone there disrespecting that site yo will be seeing ghost soon enough.

    6. Me and two friends went here just as it was getting dark. I was skeptical at first and never felt weird. Then my friend started calling out names on the gravestones and i started getting a weird feeling… i started videoing and captured plainly a ghost of a man.

    7. Yeah I went there with a group of people a couple of years ago and we all sat in the car with it running because I could here foot steps walking around on the outside when the girls got scared and tried to leave I told them to hold on it could b the wind blowing the leaves then we heard it again and I swear I saw a shadowy figure walking from the front of the car to the back. I spoke up and told them calmly I just saw a shadow figure walk on the side of the vehicle to the back. I told them hold on as I heard the rustling from the back of the car I saw it again standing and walk back behind the car. I looked to the front stuck without being able to get a word out repeatedly clicking the window button to roll up as it had been left cracked from a cigarette I was smoking earlier and had been locked so I wouldn’t get out so it would not roll up. Finally after everyone being silent a girl in the front muttered let’s take a picture I finally could speak and said yeah let’s take a pic, that’s when the other girl yelled ” omg go go go get out of here omg gabe she’s right behind u”!!!! We flew out of there and when I asked her if she was lien and what she had seen she was pale with tears running down her eyes and couldn’t speak she finally said when we went to take a pic she looked in the rear view mirror and she could c a woman standing right behind me and in disbelieve she looked again and it made a face back staring at her just as I had that feeling and had froze up and couldn’t speak and knew there was something behind me and didn’t look back. I said y’all she isn’t lien I felt it right behind me and when I mentioned the shadowy figure earlier I never told any of them that it looked like a woman…

    8. death dream meaning  |  

      I have been to Asbury cemetery twice, and I always felt like someone or something was watching me. I didn’t see anyone, but I felt someone was there. I heard the word “death dream” once. That’s when I ran away and never came back. Very creepy place!

      I have lived here for five generations, and my ancestors are buried here. And so will I. If I see someone there showing disrespect for the site, they will soon be haunted. eggy car
