  1. My dad & brother lived in flora for most of their lives & they have told me about this cemetery! I’ve wanted to visit it so bad but my dad doesn’t remember how to get there! They both have told me that walking up to the cemetery that you could hear weeping sounds & said it sent chills up the neck!

  2. I visited the church and walked through the graveyard. I didn’t see a weeping woman. I saw a woman standing straight and looking at a grave. When I looked at the grave, it had the name “yellowry”. Turns out, I’m related to yellowry

  3. I’m a member of Chapel of the Cross and I’ve only had one experience where I got dizzy standing in the graveyard next to Henry Vick’s grave.

    • I have a question, if you where to approach her and put flowers by Henry Vick’s grave, will she allow that, and what will happen if you show kindness what will she do?

  4. Union ,on Greenland rd. We had horrible experience living in old house there, I’ve never encountered anything like it! Its not about this site but it’s very real!

  5. I took about 150 pictures there on 9/3/16. Didn’t see or feel anything out of the norm. Beautiful place though. I have sent one of my pictures in with this comment. Feel free to post. Thanks

    • I have a couple of questions about the picture you posted of the church. To the left of what looks like the main entrance, and to the right of the thin window, there appears to be a clear picture of a man. I did not have to zoom in much to see this man. Has anyone mentioned seeing this? Also…can u tell me what I’m seeing in the trees on the right side of the photo? It’s about midway down. Thanks…

  6. Upon arriving with my aunt Valie, who is a professional paranormal investigator in Rapid City, SD, I was greeted at the gate by a gentleman. We were using one of the older ovulus devices. He stayed with me the whole time and answered every question I had. My mother in law was also with us and she kept hearing noises and saw what we believe to be the woman that is seen at the grave. The man that greeted me I feel was her husband and he thought I was her. He warned us of a demonic spirit buried at the edge of the cemetery away from the others. I have a whole bunch of pictures of this man and a lot of spirit orbs but unfortunately they are all on her device so I cannot add them. She will be visiting in June or July and we are going to ask to go again. By far one of the best experiences ever.

    • Me and my friend went here one evening. As we were walking around the graves we heard what sounded like a wooden door squeaking open. We looked at each other confused because nobody else was at the church. Then we heard the same door slam. That was my first time experiencing something like that so we left right after because it kind of freaked me unfortunately we didn’t see anything but that was very much real.
