  1. Friends and I went to this cemetery years ago. I took many pictures with my digital camera and found nothing on the pictures, but I took a video on my cell phone. Unfortunately, I no longer have the video but after reviewing the video there something big and white shot across the screen of my phone. Also on our way out, all of our phones stopped working – said there was service, but when we tried to call out, our phone just shut off.

  2. Several years ago, my 3 year old daughter was playing with someone named Alice in this cemetery. We adults didn’t not see or hear anything but she sure did.
