  1. I visited several weeks ago, my husband kept asking me if I saw this man over there. I could not see him! I took pictures and looked at them when we got home even posted them in my FB page. Tonight I showed the pictures to some friends and there is a Ghost in one of my pictures that I never saw until today! Check him out! LOok at the left side under the tree just in front of the large tomb stone …

    • I’ve seen this man several times during my visits. He likes to venture around during the day!
      He never says anything to you as you pass by or as he walks but it’s still a creepy factor

  2. Went there at midnight with some friends and visited the little boy, kept hearing laughter and what sounded like children playing, the closer it got to 3am the eerier it got. There was a little owl on his headstone with no batteries or anything that started going off on it’s own every time we started looking around. And the minute we started paying the owl attention we would hear stuff around us.

      Being there between midnight and 3:00 am, way after curfew I might add, you people must have done some serious drugs to be having hallucinations like that.

  3. Flowers growing on top of a grave , just the one seeing as most are plastic and placed neatly was odd to me. The other graves around it as well as 80% of the graves do not have anything but grass growing on them. We were in the dark and I could see one single flower moving one it own or so it would appear. This special flower was touching other flower around it but they did not move at all. Being a sensitive and being on a mission that night I wanted to get closer and I did. Thigpen was the only thing on the headstone and the movement leaves the one flower and traces a line of single flowers right to me and stopped. A little later on around the same area my daughter got into some prickly things “travelers” walking off the path. They were poking her and I had to help her get them off and was cursing and saying ouch a good bit and we were joined by the laughter of a lady. I also dealt with feeling very heavy feeling in one area , trouble breathing , feeling nauseous and sad came along with it. I will be going back again and seeing what else isn’t there . My daughters and I were going to go back tonight for the Halloween blue moon but it was locked up.

      Yes, The cemetery association had to start locking the cemetery up at sundown. And it’s due to people like you entering the cemetery at night which you, or no one else has any business doing! I assume you know how to read. There have been signs at each entrance for years saying, “No entrance after sundown.” The cemetery association had to go to a lot of unnecessary expense to put up fences and locked gates because of a lot of defiant people who refused to follow a few simple rules!

      Thank You! This is the only post I’ve seen in this ridiculous thread that is respectful and reminds these people what a cemetery is actually for. Hard to believe some of these people may be adults.

  4. My darling Meret,
    That’s not how things go. When you make your way to explore what is already happening, it’s really not called hunting now is it?
    I like to help spirits pass over and help ease their pains.
    I’ve been there several times just to walk around and gather the feelings of places.
    The witches are guarded by a certain iron fence, there is civil war soldiers that still patrol the grounds. There are certain areas that call to me that I’ve never found documented but i honestly feel like on the cliff over to the right of the graveyard, people were hanged. I constantly feel it when i visit it. There is no way you can control what wants to communicate with you or not. Spirits have feelings just like us living folk. Quit being a Kyle or Karen.
