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.

HAUNTED ARKANSAS-DO THE CEMETERIES HAVE A PAST???

 

I just got back from a nice trip up to Arkansas to see my brother, Junior and his family.  First let me say, I love the country side...it is sooooo pretty!!!

17_monster.gifI know you guys are going to find this hard to believe...... BUT the rest of my family is not interested in the paranormal at all!!!  Am I the only one with the "WEIRD/CRAZY" jean???

Anyway, my brother has several cemeteries close to him.  We visited 3 of them.  The McBroom Cemetery, the Lower Wharton Creek Cemetery and a very small, secluded cemetery called The Lane Cemetery.  Now, we didn't get a lot of paranormal activity but we did have a few experiences I would like to share.

And before I forget, don't forget to follow me on Facebook and Twitter.  I talk about a lot of different things there and try to share links and pages I think you guys would find interesting.

First, the McBroom Cemetery in Madison County.  I had been here a couple of times before and for some reason, I am very interested in this place!!! Some of the coffin like caskets....YES....I said coffin... sit on top of the ground making for a very eerie site!  Some are small, like the size of a small child or baby and others are large like adult size.  It almost looks like a "field of coffins".  I have been to MANY cemeteries over the years and this just looks totally creepy to me.  THIS is the ONLY cemetery where the tombstones are in the shape of a coffin and lay on top of the ground that I have ever run across.  hhuuumm

I could not find out ANY history on this cemetery as I found out to be true with most of the cemeteries I tried to research in Arkansas.  I am sure this is a family cemetery with graves as recent as 2006 being buried here.

I DID get a few good EVP's here during the day.  We were unable to visit it at night because of the weather.  I also did not capture anything unusual in the pictures but I still wanted you guys to see this place.

I made a short video, I know, before you ever email me about it, it is not very good.  Well.....maybe I should say...not very CLEAR to hear.  The voices are VERY faint and the wind was blowing so the EVP's are difficult to hear.  But give it a try.  Turn up your volume and hopefully you can spot them.

Below are pictures of the McBroom Cemetery.












 

 The second cemetery we visited was the Lower Wharton Creek Cemetery.  Now this cemetery is still an active burial site for locals and their families.  This place is HUGE and when you stand at the top of the hill, you look out OVER the cemetery as it rests on a very tall hillside.


What little I could find out about this cemetery is there are many slaves buried here.  At the back of the cemetery or at the bottom, slaves are marked with nothing more than a large rock. Hard for me to believe that they couldn't even put their names on the rocks for them.  And it has been said, some of the lucky ones....if the family considered their slave as "part of the family" they could be buried with the owners name. I saw very few names on the rocks.  I did not have any paranormal activity here THIS trip but last visit about three years ago, we had LOTS of activity with our equipment and lots of EVP's.


















And the last one was my favorite!  The Lane Cemetery.  It has about 22 people buried in it right now and is NOT an active cemetery.  This is a small family cemetery that sits up off the road just a little way and you would never see it unless you knew it was there.

The gentleman that owns the property now gave us permission to investigate.  We found out a couple of things about this cemetery.  It was MUCH larger at one time, we believe between 22-40 people are actually buried here. We confirmed this information with the current owner and also from the spirit box.  It is true, that there used to be more graves but the previous owner PLOWED THEM UP to make room for his crops!!!  Is the man CRAZY????? What was he thinking!!!  Did he just think...."Hey think I'll just plow all these dead people and plant corn"!!!!!! Anyway, one of the stories that was verified by the current owner was that a man was killed with a pitchfork.  There was a fight broke out.....one man ran into a barn and hid in the hay.  Another man came in and grabbed a pitchfork and started STABBING the hay where the man was hiding under the hay.  Stabbed him to death!!! 

We believe Mrs. Lane, buried at the top of the hill surrounded by an old iron fence died in an accidental fire by herself.  How sad.  We had a little flashlight communication here but did not get any EVP's.  It was very cold and windy.  So not great conditions.  This made EVP's very difficult to hear IF we had any at all.


 












Now even though I did not have TONS of activity...don't think I didn't have a great time and think that these three cemeteries are absolutely worth investigating again!!!  THEY ARE!!!!!
