    1. I went to Gilson Road Cemetery and I saw a woman in a long white dress just as I walked through the gate in the middle on the right side. There was also a red orb, almost like a laser point, on the right side where the woman in white stood about a 15 min earlier. I also saw shadow figure behind the wall in the right corner, it was going over the wall to enter the cemetery, it saw me looking at it and then ducked down behind the wall and vanished. I didn’t see anything else after that. I did take some pictures, I didn’t capture any orbs or apparition on film but the photos I took at the back right corner came back pitch black.

    3. So my wife and I have a German Shepard that is incredibly alert at all times. She is a former Military working dog and we have come to trust her instincts at all times. I had read about this cemetery and we were in the area so we stopped by. It was a very hot,humid summer day. We walked into the cemetery and started along the stone wall. We got about halfway down the wall and The dog started to act odd. She kept looking toward the back corner of the cemetery and her hair was up. I started to walk that way and she got in between me and that section, facing me and barking. She was trying to keep me from going there. I didn’t see anything myself, but as I kept getting closer (It’s a really small cemetery), she wanted nothing to do with that corner. I had read that the corner was the hot spot in that cemetery before we even went, but she definitely confirmed it. While I was standing in that corner, I called her and she absolutely refused to come to me which is unheard of for her.

      Hi just came back from the cemetery tonight, for the first time, I heard rustling of some bottles in the back where the woods are, it was mostly quiet &some cars were driving by, not until my friend and I heard a high pitched stretched out woman’s scream did I turn & start running to the car that was parked across the street. It could have been someone trying to scare us & play a joke, but you couldn’t really see us from the road. But we took that as a hint that someone/something didn’t want us there…

    5. The local police used to jump out of the woods here to scare kids off at night and deter teenage parties…this went on throughout the 80’s and 90’s. I wouldn’t be surprised if they still did this as it’s “tradition”. I also wouldn’t be surprised if some of the paranormal stuff reported was them messing with people for kicks in a small New England town lol.

    6. I took my niece there once and we caught some unexplained light shooting up from the ground I also got on a video what sounds like someone breathing behind me but the next day when I went to show my sister my phone e suddenly crashed and reset losing everything. I went by myself and did an evp session and u can hear people talking…NOONE WAS AROUND AT ALL…it was so very quiet….I just left there and did a spirit box session got a response to my hello and when I said goodbye I got a BYE in the same voice….
