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 37 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 explainable 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.



The Skinner Cemetery-The First known to be buried here was Josiah Taylor in 1858  and the  Last person to be buried in Skinner Cemetery was Joe Mylo Phipps,  Apr 27, 1928.

Let me tell you, this place is AWESOME!!!! We kinda' stumbled upon this great little cemetery a couple months ago while trying to find another one.  You know me...I believe in SIGNS.....so I think we weren't suppose to find the OTHER cemetery we were looking for because we were MEANT to find this one!!!!

We walked around taking pictures and had a digital recorder with us.  We got some great EVP's.  We got a Class A EVP of a lady's voice answering a direct question from me.  I asked, "so I know there is a geocache(I'll explain what that is another time, but it is a travel game of sorts) anyway, I asked "Can you tell me where the geocache is?" And immediately.......I got a clear response to my question...."What is that"?  Another great EVP was while playing with the ball(you'll see the video) I got a little boy....in a very DEMANDING way, I might add.....saying "Give ME the Ball!!!!!!"  Sorry, I'm still editing the EVP's.
 Below is a little brief history of the cemetery.

The first recorded burial was that of 5year-old Josiah Taylor in March of 1858; his father, Josiah Sr., died the following July. Predominantly of Anglo-Saxon Protestant descent, most of those buried here came from Kentucky, Virginia, Missouri, Arkansas, and Tennessee. Many were farmers or ranchers. Significant graves include that of J. D. Merchant, Sr., a local businessman who built the first brick building in the area. Also here are several victims of yellow fever, including Prissie and Sarah Wilson, sisters who died within 2 months of one another during the epidemic of 1872 and 1873. Two people named James Graham, born on the same date two years apart, died on the same September day in 1867. Lucinda Skinner, the last charter member of the Pilot Point First Baptist Church, died in 1890. By 1900, there were probably 200 graves in the cemetery. The land was sold by John Skinner to the Skinner Cemetery Association in 1905; the last recorded burial was that of Joe Mylo Phipps, an infant who died in 1928. The Skinner Cemetery remains a vital link to the early settlers of the Pilot Point community. (1998)   
Now, the GOOD STUFF!!!!  We were trying to communicate with a 5 year old boy  that was the first to be buried here and was calling him Timothy.(Sorry, we had the name wrong, but didn't seem to matter)  Anyway...we started having really good flashlight communication with the young spirit.  So I asked if he would like to play with a ball.  The flashlight went crazy!!!!!! So I sat a small green ball on top of a brick that was sitting up on top of a grave site that was lined with a brick border.  Anyway, within 5 mins of sitting the ball on the brick and asking that the little boy push it off.......HE DID JUST THAT!!!!!!!  You can hear my reaction of SHOCK because I just wasn't expecting it to happen so soon!  And not only that, we sat the ball back on the brick and asked him to do it again....and you guessed it.....................HE DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Matter of fact, the way he pushes it the second time....it's like he pushes it off.....then catches it....because in the video you will see how the ball rolls backwards THEN forward....like he caught it and rolled it back!!!
And before you even ask.....NO there was NO wind at all!!! Not even a breeze! It was even a eerily calm night.  I can tell you after the second time, the ball NEVER moved again the whole night!
Ok.......here is the video.  I hope you find it as impressive as I did.
I know this post is long but I am very excited to write about it!!!!  So, I wanted to add some pretty COOL pics as well.
