I have a friend who lay’s at rest in this cemetery.one morning,about two am I went in the cemetery to visit his grave.it was summertime,when all of a sudden it got cold.i mean real cold,i looked around and saw something,cant say what it was,shivers ran up my spine,then it felt like a hand on my suborder,i did a fast walk to my car and left.ive been back to visit my friend,just not in the am.
As a teenager I lived in newer Summerville neighborhood… Edgefield I think. Anyway, I had several visits from the spirit of a young boy. He wore overalls, was around 7 yrs old with blond hair and missing a front tooth. He looked like a farm boy. He seemed to be trying to tell me something.
I live close to this cemetery and drive past this place at least twice per week. I also am blessed with the shining and I can tell you that I have an array of mixed emotions about this place. It is certainly flowing with spirits and the worst feeling I have had was visiting the graveyard behind the Mausoleum itself. It was a feeling if great sadness. the Children’s cemetery is located along the fence line of Parks Little League Baseball field. This is a peaceful and happy portion of the cemetery and I have had a shining of a visual of the children sitting on the fence happily watching a baseball game some of which were never able to play because they passed so suddenly or young. Christ was among them as well.
The odor of what seems to be cherry pipe tobacco smoke lingers when the air is stagnant. I do not know about the difficulty of breath, as it gives a feel of burning of the lungs and definitely opens the sinuses.
I live right next door and me and my paranormal group has been there plenty of times. we just went last night and not even 10 mins in batteries went dead in our spirit box. put new ones in and it wouldn’t work got home and it worked. we have seen shadows gotten plenty of orbs voices, and smelled smoke. thers is a little boy named Toby by the pond. we think he has followed us home several times after each investigation. the corner of our bed gets bumped night after night until we go put a toy on his headstone then it quits. the older section is very unnerving its the most active if you go there. cops will run you off unless he or shes believes in ghost. we had one follow us around one night. when he called it in other cops came back and said to him your brave that place is haunted.
Do you need permission to go investigate this place? Me and a couple friends would love to investigate ourself.
We went this night and had no permission. Saw weird things by mausoleum and heard scary thumping.
I have gone to this graveyard numerous of time at night and have never seen nor heard anything out of the ordinary.
We went there and saw this dude wearing cut off blue jeans and a crop top. He was just staring at us and following us around. He laughed at all our jokes and seemed very, very friendly.
