    1. Yes!! This is the place!! I went to Niagara University in 1998 and my room mate and I were watching Unsolved Mysteries and it had an episode about this graveyard. We went to visit and saw nothing for over an hour. After an hour we were getting ready to leave thinking it was a hoax. Well as soon as I lit a cigarette with my lighter a orange orb appeared above a young girls grave stone. It flew around the cemetery then vanished back in her grave. We ran out of there as fast as we could. Please contact me back about this. Andrew 315-728-8466

        I could have written this story myself. I too went to Niagara University in 1984. My friend and I heard the story about the little girl and we went to the cemetery. We walked around for awhile and we were about to leave and then saw the glowing grave. We ran so fast out of that place. It was beyond scary. I still live in the area and have never returned there.

      • I could have written this myself. I went to Niagara University (1983-1987) as well. In 1985 some friends from the area told me about the glowing grave and I did not believe them. So my friends and I went to the cemetery at night and walked around and did not see anything so just before we left we saw a glowing grave. We ran out of there so fast. I still live in the area but have not been back to that cemetery. It was scary
