Reports and Submissions
My name is Doris Mxxxxx and we live in a small quiet rural town where nothing much happens.
Twelve years ago we moved into this house unaware that there was a ghostly presence living here.
The house is a two story cape cod probably built back in the early fifties.On the first floor there is two bedrooms(we use one for a bedroom and the other room for my husbands computer),a bathroom,kitchen,dinning room and living room.There also is an enclosed porch off the dinning room and a garage. Upstairs ther are two bedrooms,with a crawl space in each room and a bathroom.
When we moved in everything was a mess as you can imagine. My oldest son took one of the bedrooms upstairs and my youngest took the other one.
As with the rest of the house his room was in a state of disaray. Now this is my oldest i'm talking about.
The next day or soon after,I'm not sure exactly when it started, my son noticed the cable box was flying off his desk and he was no wheres near it.This continued until he enclosed it in cement bricks.
He also had a poster of a motorcycle which he took a picture of and when the picture was developed it had a strange white cloud on it which was not in the original.
We had pictures fall off the wall,the television go on in the middle of the night and tune to a spanish station.
Many of my husbands things would disappear.Now my husband is a creature of habit so he puts things away where they belong.Soon after they would reappear.
We had soom friends over this one time and when they came in they detected a very sweet smelling perfume.The woman kept trying to see if it was something that I was wearing but found out it was not.
I had a dinner bell on the kitchen table that would ring and again no one was near it.One night I took a piece of paper and placed the bell on it and drew a circle.That night we heard the ring of the bell again and went to check the paper.It was in the same position that I had left it.
My husband worked very close to where we live so he use to come home for lunch.One day while he was having lunch he could hear very clearly what sounded like muskets going off.It would start in one room and go through the entire house.It was like the revolution was going on in the house.Sometimes he would also hear boxes being moved upstairs.Of course there were no boxes.
One night my oldest son and a friend of his were working on his car in the driveway.All of a sudden my son and his friend heard footsteps likem someone wearing boots.They continued up the driveway,around the car and back down again.My son and his friend just looked at each other and then his friend said he was leaving.
Up till now we were quite amused by this ghostly presence because it was'nt as we felt evil or meaning us any harm.We felt it a little impish and thats all.
Well that was until one night when in the middle of the night we heard a loud crash come from our oldest son's room. At first we thought maybe he had just fallen out of bed so we weren't to quick to go upstairs to investigate. But something told me that we better go even if it's just to check on our son.
We were not prepared to see what we saw when we opened the door.There was our son sitting up in bed with a stunned look on his face.
His bed was positioned near the window with his television to the left of him up on a stand.He had small cans of fish food on the television.This is so you know how things were positioned.
Well when we walked in the television was on the floor as far as the cord would reach face down with the screen on the floor and needless to say broken. The fish food which was on top was next to the television.
Now our son was asleep and no wheres near the television when this occured.
This is when we decided that our little friend was getting a little to destructive.Earlier it was only little impish things,now it was getting serious.
We called in a parapsycholigist. One of which was a psychic. They did all kinds of tests and had all kinds of equipment. They determined that there was a ghostly presence in the house.
We all went upstairs,this is after many visits and had something like a seance but it wasn't. They had their tape recording going and recorded everything. When asked to make its presence known a decoration that my son had hanging from the ceiling started to spin but it would go one way then the other and there were no windows open.
We went outside for a short time and when we came back we listened to the tape and could here all kinds of banging and noises.
When asked earlier to leave the premises,on tape there were all kinds of bangs and weird noises.
Well I guess they did the trick because we haven't been bothered since.
Our other son says he has heard some noise but thats all. Maybe they are being discrete about their presence.
