About Me

My photo
Behind Every Cloud is a Kindred Spirit (BECKS)I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. How could I still communicate with him? I loved him so much I didn't think I could live without him. I read everything I could get my hands on to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. I have been researching the paranormal for over 30 years!! It is my way of staying in touch with my grandfather. Being a Ghost Hunter is not always as exciting as it seems on TV. Many nights I have sat in the dark and not a thing happened. BUT it is those times you DO get that one voice, that one unexplainable picture or have an experience that sends chills down your back that makes it sooo worth it all!!! My purpose of this blog is not to make people believe in ghosts but maybe to open their minds just a little bit... I LOVE this crazy thing called Ghost Hunting. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I am just a girl that refuses to accept we can't still contact our loved ones after they die. My grandfather won't let me.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!

COOL HAUNTED PLACES II- MY FAVORITES


Hello hello hello.....I am sitting here trying to figure out what would be my favorite TOP THREE places I have actually visited or done an investigation on....hhhuummm MAN this is hard!!!  I have been so fortunate to have over the years, got to go to places and see things that I could only imagine I would get to see being your normal everyday Ghost Hunter.  But I am up for the challenge of picking my three favorite places.  So....here goes....

In 3rd place-DRY CREEK CEMETERY in Terrell, Tx-

Named for a nearby ravine, this burial ground originally served the community of Turner's Point. Located on the stage road between Shreveport, Louisiana, and Dallas, the settlement was established by Elisha Turner in 1845. In the 1870s the town was moved to a new location (1.5 miles southeast) and renamed Poetry. The earliest marked grave at this site is that of Samuel Key (1840-1871). Now closed for burials, the cemetery has 279 marked graves bearing names of the English, Scottish, Irish, and Welsh pioneer settlers of the area.

I read about this cemetery a couple of years ago and was so intrigued that I JUST had to pay a visit. This cemetery is located on the outskirts of Terrell. It is a long drive about 9 miles out to the country. It is nestled among some really old, really big trees. As SOON as you drive up you can tell this is going to be an AWESOME place for paranormal activity. Voices, orbs, lights, mist are all activity reported here.

A group of us went to check it out one weekend and we were NOT disappointed in the activity and experiences we had!!!  We sat up in the middle of the cemetery right in front of a giant old tree.  Don't worry, you won't miss the tree....it is GIANT!!!  You can tell it is the center stone of the cemetery. This cemetery is reported to have a portal in the far right corner.  Also, a spirit named Billy the Cowboy that is suppose to be a bit cantankerous has been reported seen here.  He was hung from a tree back in the 1800's  for a crime he did not commit.  I particularly wanted to speak with him.

We started our investigation by sitting in a group with a flashlight sitting in the middle of us.  We  had citronella candles sitting around us for light and also because it was a hot, summer night and the bugs were really bad!  I just snapped a couple of pics over my shoulders. You'll notice the time stamp on the two pics. The first one was over my left shoulder and the second one was over my right. What a difference?  It was by far the most active part of the cemetery.   I defiantly feel this is where the portal is.  It is NOT dust, nor had we been walking in that area to stir up dust. These two pics where taken back to back so if it had been pollen or something in the air...it would have been in all the pics. This is the only picture we have like this out of all we took. Not another photo looks like this.

What can I say about this place???  It is a GREAT place to go sit quietly, enjoy the sounds of hoot owls and frogs, look up in the sky and see beautiful bright stars....oh yeah....and say HI to Billy for me.  Don't miss this one.

  A strange orb that looks like two together shows up in several photos the same way. 
Is this Billy's grave?  I think so.
We offered Billy a cigarette and then we started
getting all kinds of communication.

 










Here is a link to part of our flashlight session.  No laughing........

2nd Place

OLD ALTON BRIDGE, Hickory Creek, TX-Old Alton Bridge (sometimes called Goatman's Bridge - see below) is a historic iron through-truss bridge connecting the cities of Denton, Texas and Copper Canyon, Texas. Built in 1884, by the King Iron Bridge Manufacturing Company, it originally carried horses and later automobiles over Hickory Creek at a location that once was a popular ford for crossing cattle. The bridge takes its name from the abandoned community of Alton, which between 1850-1856 was the seat of Denton County  .

Long story...short.....There was a black goat farmer named Oscar Washburn.  He started becoming well known around the community for selling goats.  Oscar put up a sign on the Old Alton Bridge that said "this way to goatman's".  This was back when the KKK was VERY present in Denton County.  They did not like that Oscar was becoming successful.  So one night they decided to wait for him on the bridge.  When Oscar came to the bridge to cross on his way home, the KKK grabbed him and hung him over the side of the bridge.  Later that night they came to check on Oscar and make sure he was dead.  They found nothing hanging over the side of the bridge but a noose.  No body....no Oscar.  This scared the KKK because they didn't want him to talk about what had happen to him so they went to his house.....only to find that Oscar wasn't their but his wife and children were.  The KKK drug his wife and children out of the house and  brutally murdered them.  I have spoken with Oscar several times and he is such a kind, sweet spirit.  But there is also a spirit I have talked to named Steve and he is a different story!  I believe he was the Grand Dragon of the KKK for the North Texas area.  He has no remorse for what he has done.

Below is a really cool video.  My investigation and evidence is soon to be aired on My Ghost Stories.  After it airs, I will be able to post my evidence for you guys.  And you guys will LOVE it!!!

I have had soooo many experiences here!!!  Some not so good!  I have awesome EVP's, pictures of dark shadows, orbs, balls moving on their own and this is the ONLY place that I have EVER been that I have actually been grabbed.  I believe Steve gabbed(not touched, but GRABBED) my leg while I was sitting in a chair telling him that I knew who he was and what he did!  It was VERY SCARY!!!

When I just need my "ghost fix" I just head out to Old Alton....because I know there.....someone ALWAYS wants to talk or be seen.

I normally wouldn't post pics of myself
or team members...but this was the filming for
the Bio Channel and I can say it was a
dream come true for me to have my work
recognized.








Children  answering us after I asked "does anyone want to play ball with me?"  saying "we want to play".

Ok........Are you ready????? Really ready????? My ALL TIME FAVORITE PLACE to go Ghost Hunting is........Salem, Mass!!!!  You got it!!! The witch capital of the world and the place where spirits rome freely among the living.  There is just soooo much to do in Salem that it would take me a week to tell all about them.  Salem is mostly known for the famous Witchcraft Trials in 1692.  From June through September of 1692, nineteen men and women, all having been convicted of witchcraft, were carted to Gallows Hill, a barren slope near Salem Village, for hanging. Another man of over eighty years was pressed to death under heavy stones for refusing to submit to a trial on witchcraft charges. Hundreds of others faced accusations of witchcraft. Dozens languished in jail for months without trials. Then, almost as soon as it had begun, the hysteria that swept through Puritan Massachusetts ended. 

So, because my post has been soooo long tonight I am just going to post a few of my favorite photos from Salem.  But let me say this......if you want CREEPY.....if you want SCARY......if you want stories after stories of hauntings.....and if you want to be guaranteed a GREAT time of Ghost Hunting....Salem, Massachusetts is the place for you!!!!
