      • Jokes aside, may my dad, grandmother, grandfather, cousins, aunts, and uncles rest in peace. I dont think it is, or heard anything about it being haunted

    1. We used to camp at Seneca Lake, about 10 miles from this cemetary. Myself and a group of about 12 friends were on nightly walk that we had taken hundreds of times over the years. The walk was through the campgrounds, past the beach and back the old cabin road. Like many nights we all talked and walked together out to the cabin road and back. One night, on our way back, we had just past the beach entrance and was walking near the small pull-off area between the beach entry and the top of the hill near the oval. Off to the left was a small outhouse type restroom sitting in a mowed patch of grass betwen the road and the woods. The mowed area covered about 60 feet from the road to the edge of the woods. It was somewhere betwwen 10 pm and midnight when we were walking. As we were walking we noticed movement up by the woods. When we looked up, we saw an older lady, in a white formal dress/wedding gown, moving slowly in pace with us, floating above the ground. She turned to acknowledge our presence, but never made a threatening move toward us. Her face was very white, almost glowing, and wrinkled with age. She was floating about a foot off the ground and completely silent as her legs moved in a walkng motion. She moved for about 60 feet and disappeared behind the outhouse. We all were terrified and started screamming and running back toward the campgrounds. One girl jumped and was caught mid air by one of the guys in our group and carried part of the way back. We all could not believe what we had just seen. Since it had rained earlier that day and the area that this occured was mostly soft mud type of ground, we decided to go back in the daylight and see if we could find any tracks to explain what we saw. Our investigation of the area produced no tracks of any kind other than small animal prints. If a human had walked in that area, it would have been easy to see the footprints. Never saw this entity before or after that night.
