  1. My husband and I were just at the Sanksville Cemetery. We live in North Bay, Ontario Canada and we visit St. Augustine every year. This Cemetery definitely has a feel to it. I took an EMF reader with me but it never spiked. My voice recorder picked up some weird static but no voices. My husband picked up something that kind of sounds like “thank you” on one of his recordings. He said it happened after he gave his respects to the Sanks family that served . We are still on the road making our way back home. We won’t know if there are any anomalies in the pics until he downloads them. Here is a couple of pics we took.

    • I have since reviewed my voice recordings and I believe I captured someone on it. First it sounds like someone is saying ” hurry up” then a faint “what”. Followed by a clear mans voice saying ” there’s somebody with us”. I am amazed. I will be returning to Sanksville Cemetery next year for sure!

  2. It has been there a long time that is for sure I’m 39 and live in bakersville about 3-5 from there and it has been there as long as I can remember and have heard several stories about that cemetery & the one at Millcreek but from first hand experience never have seen anything at the cemeteries but there used to be a big 2story house at the end of 16 where 210 intersects that I got stories for days about from first hand experience on several occasions even after they tore down the house. That place is definitely got something going on i haven’t been back there in almost 20 years and don’t plan on it, but I pass by all the time and and wonder how many people know how close they are to pure evil! & yes I say evil because it has never been good things happen there just put it that wayy!!!
