Haunted History – The Carnton Plantation

Let’s talk about the Haunted Carnton Plantation in Franklin TN where from time to time, Carrie McGavock is seen on the back porch that overlooks a historic Civil War cemetery. There’s a couple of odd things about seeing Carrie though.  People always wonder why Carrie wears a long white dress all the time, even in the hot summer months.  There’s also the fact that she’s been dead since 1905.

Let me hook you guys up with a little of the Family History here. Carnton was built in 1826 by A former mayor of Nashville named Randall McGavock, it quickly became one of the prominent farms in Williamson County.

Randall’s son John inherited the plantation and married Carrie in December of 1848. The couple had 5 children 3 of which died young. A couple of decades later the Civil War was going down and in November of 1864, The Battle of Franklin was fought in the vicinity of the plantation.

This was one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. Over 9,500 soldiers were killed, wounded, captured or counted as missing. 7,000 of these soldiers were Confederates. The Carnton mansion, used as a military hospital, it served thousands of wounded and dying Confederate soldiers. Needless to say, the McGavock family was traumatized by the things they saw and experienced.

After the war in 1866, when they noticed the need for a larger cemetery for the fallen soldiers they donated 2 acres of their land near their family plot to accommodate an additional 1500 soldiers. The family oversaw and maintained the graves of the soldiers with as much dedication as they did those in their family plot.

According to Margie Thessin, a tour guide at the mansion, Carrie still watches over the graves. Typical reports include her sitting on her back porch where there is a good view of the cemetery. But sometimes shes seen floating around in the back yard wearing a white dress. As you’ve probably already guessed, Carrie isn’t alone there at the plantation. She’s in good company. There are frequent reports of the ghosts of Confederate soldiers seen all about the grounds there but it said that they are more active there during the Fall months at dusk, when of course, is when the battle of Franklin went down.

A descendant of one of these fallen soldiers visited the plantation recently. He gets there in the late afternoon, after the mansion was closed to visitors. So, he decides to walk around and winds up on this path that leads to the back of the property. He looks up and sees the silhouette of a man dressed in uniform about to mount a horse. He stands there watching and as soon as the man hops onto the horse, they vanished. He looks around and sees this other man dressed as a Confederate officer sitting on the back porch so, he walks up and asked, “What happened to his horse?”

The soldier then explained that the horse had been shot out from under this soldier like his had been earlier. This officer went on to explain to him that without their horses they were at the mercy of the enemy. The soldier then tells him that if he was going to stay he better have a pistol or he wouldn’t last long.

So then he asked the soldier what kind of gun he used. The soldier starts explaining his weapon. As he’s describing why he used this particular weapon, the dude starts to realize that these men were not Civil War enactors.

When the soldier found out that the dude didn’t have a gun, he started kind of freaking out and told him that he should quickly leave for the town–to get out of harm’s way. The soldier then turned to another spirit that stood nearby. “Well if we are going to die, let us die like men.” He then threw his hat in the air forcefully and vanished.

Fact or Fiction – Spontaneous Human Combustion

What do you think causes this madness? Well, some folks blame it on Poltergeists because they’re known to cause spontaneous fires, and there’s hundreds of reports of un-explainable lights popping up in haunted houses. Other folks think that SHC is caused by the wrath of vengeful spirits or malicious entities from other dimensions. Whatever the true cause of SHC, reports of it have haunted men and women for centuries.

Although it’s not recognized as a medical condition, there’s no denying that this shit happens, even if we don’t understand what it is, or why. The most mainstream theory is called the wick effect. Basically, the body, mainly the fat, acts like a fuel for the flames. But, some folks say that this theory is lame. Just think of the insanely high temperatures you’d need to reduce a body completely to ash.  Obviously, more research is needed.  In the meanwhile, here some SHC cases that I thought I’d tell you about.

This one happened in Brazil on December 16, 2007. A shit ton of witnesses, including police, saw this chick burst into flames and become “incinerated in seconds”. The chick’s face, arms, and upper torso were burned to the point of nonrecognition, and she had severe burns to her right leg. Bizarrely, her clothing did not appear to be as damaged as her body was—It appeared that her body had burned from the inside out. Well, Ya’ll know them Latino women are hot headed, not much of a mystery here right!

One theory was that she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and got struck by lightning, I suddenly have AC/DC Thunderstruck playing in my head. Anyway, there was another theory that she’d actually been set on fire as part of some sadistic gang initiation, but, there was no sign of an accelerant on her remains so, I think not!

 In 2015, this German chick decides to spend the afternoon at the park, apparently it turned out to be anything but relaxing. She’s just kicked back and chilling on this bench and all of the sudden, she bursts into flames for no apparent reason. This dude was walking by and saw the whole thing go down so he tried to smother the flames with his jacket, but she still died from her injuries. This happened in broad daylight and in full view of several witnesses, many of them young mothers with their kids.

The chick, was thought to have been in her forties and was well-known locally. According to witness reports, she was just sitting on the bench and all of the sudden her body became suddenly engulfed in flames. She was completely silent during the whole event, leading some folks suspecting that she had committed suicide.

There were reports that two men were seen running from the scene in the immediate aftermath, suggesting that the woman may have been the victim of an attack. But, that was ruled out, there were no signs of attack on the victim’s remains, nor was a source found on her body to suggest where the fire had started.

 

 This one went down in January 2016, So, this video pops up on the Internet, It’s showing this dude calmly lying in a doorway in Serbia, while flames seemed to eat their way out of his body and engulf him. An onlooker is heard asking the man to see if he is okay, he says, “What’s happening?”

This is some bizarre shit here. This dude just motions for this concerned bystander to go away as he lays there calmly with flames coming from his gut. Even stranger than that, he appeared to walk away basically unharmed.

According to comments made on social media by people who lived in the area where the footage was allegedly shot, this dude is known locally and has been involved in “problematic behavior” in the past. Whether the man used something to set the fire himself or if indeed he was a victim of spontaneous human combustion is not known, but the video itself has been examined and appears to be authentic.

 Then check this one out, A Coroner Officially Ruled that an Irish dude Died From Spontaneous Combustion. An official ruling of SHC, interesting right! Well, in September 2011, nine months after the death of 76-year-old Michael Faherty, this coroner, Dr. Ciaran McLoughlin ruled that he was a victim of spontaneous human combustion. McLoughlin stated that after investigating deaths for over a quarter of a century, this was the first time that he had ever made such a ruling.

Faherty’s death baffled investigators, They’d quickly ruled out that an accelerant had been used and, the fire in the fireplace wasn’t the cause either. Get this, the fire appeared to have been contained just to Faherty, the only other damage was on the floor and ceiling directly underneath and above his burned remains.

Dr. McLoughlin stated that he had not come to his decision lightly and had conducted extensive research into the subject before making his ruling. He said that his examination of the body, as well as the investigation of the fire itself, left him with no other conclusion that he could draw.

Here’s another one about a Man that Had Blue Flames Coming Out Of His Stomach.

Larry Arnold has researched and examined a lot of cases when it comes to spontaneous human combustion. One of his strangest cases was that of Robert Bailey, a well-known alcoholic who was found burning to death in a derelict building. People walking by one their way to work noticed a commotion in a vacant house. When they went in they found Bailey on fire, so they called for emergency services.

The Fire Brigade commander, John Stacey, who attended the scene, told Arnold years later that the flames were “coming from inside the body itself” and that there appeared to be a slit in the man’s stomach where the blue, blowtorch-like flames exited. It was noted that no other part of the building had been set on fire and that only the body burned, although there were markings on the wooden floor from the heat.

The fire crew emptied their extinguishers on Bailey, eventually putting out the intense flames, but it was too late to save his life. But aside from Bailey’s stomach and torso, no other part of his body or his clothes were damaged. Bailey had bitten into the newel post on the stairs that were made out of mahogany. His teeth were locked down so tight that a fireman had to pry his jaws open to remove his corpse.

This one would have you considering saving the cash you’d spend on a cremation. This dude was Reduced To A Pile Of Ash In Minutes. Young Seek Kim lived all of his 78-years in Honolulu. He’d spent most of it paralyzed from the waist down and got around in his wheelchair.

In December 1956, he was at home when all the sudden, flames burst out of his stomach, quickly spreading in all directions, engulfing him within seconds. A neighbor, Virginia Cadet, quickly ran to his aid, she later said he was entirely covered in blue flames. She called the fire department, but they get there 15 minutes later, by then, Young Seek Kim and his wheelchair were nothing more than a pile of ash. All that remained of him was a pair of feet.

No other areas of the room were damaged, and once the flames had reduced him to nothing, they seemed to have disappeared instead of spreading elsewhere. Firemen and investigators were perplexed by this, there were clothes and books all around that should have caught fire.

 This next dude actually Survived SHC, Vietnam War vet Frank Baker was getting ready to leave for a fishing trip with his friend, Pete Willey, when he suddenly burst into flames while sitting on his sofa. Willey managed to smother the flames, and Baker appeared to be largely unhurt, just a bit shaken. So he goes to his doctor for a check up, and according to Baker, he was told that it looked like he’d “burned from the inside out.”

Baker made appearances on the show The Unexplained Files to tell his story. He said it happened again when he and Willey were out on the lake fishing. Flames just started to overtake his body out of nowhere, they were coming from his torso. Again with Willey’s assistance, the flames were smothered out. Baker is one of the first recorded victims of SHC to survive and I bet he keeps Willey pretty close by or else he’s stopped fishing!

 But this next dude, yeah he didn’t make it. In 2013, Danny Vanzandt’s incinerated body was found by his family. It was apparent that the heat and power of the blaze must have been massive, but there was no other damage to the rest of the wood house that he lived in.

A lot of people pointed out that he was a well-known alcoholic and a very heavy cigarette smoker, But the physical evidence at the scene showed that neither were the cause of his death. Not only was no other part of the home damaged, but there were no signs that a struggle had taken place, which might have suggested foul play. Vanzandt seemed to have simply gone up in flames.

Investigator Ron Lockhart, made the point even clearer, he stated, “You could pour gasoline on somebody and he wouldn’t be as badly incinerated!” Lockhart also said he believed that there must have been some ignition source, but the suggestion of spontaneous human combustion was not officially ruled out.

 

And this little dude here Could really be Hell Boy! By the time Rahul was three months old, he had already burst into flames four times, at least according to reports that surfaced in 2013. This kid had his first experience with SHC at only nine days old. His terrified mother watched on in horror as her newborn son was engulfed in flames for no apparent reason.

The Doctor that worked his case, stated that “combustible gases” released from the patient’s pores may be responsible for Rahul catching fire out of nowhere. Damn! what the hell were they feeding this kid!? The only advice that was offered to the parents was to make sure anything flammable was kept completely away from him, including any flammable clothing or diapers. It is expected that as Rahul gets older, he will undergo plastic surgery.

Perhaps the most chilling aspect for the frantic parents was the fact that the Doctor couldn’t be sure that it wouldn’t happen again.

And then there’s this one, where the big dogs were called in. The FBI report clearly states that 67-year-old Mary Reeser fell asleep while smoking a cigarette in her chair, she was groggy from two Seconal tablets she’d taken earlier and she accidentally set herself on fire. Reeser burned to death, it was thought that Reeser’s own body fat had further fueled the fire.

However, numerous researchers and writers have dismissed their report over the years. They state that the fact that all that remained of Reeser was a foot, a skull fragment, and a piece of her spine, as well as only the springs of the chair she sat on, would have meant the fire would have to have burned at an intensely high heat. There should have been damage throughout the entire building.

But that didn’t happen, only the spot where Reeser had been sitting was damaged by fire in any way. Even a pile of newspapers stacked right next to her chair was left completely unscathed, it was even noted during the initial investigation, that there wasn’t a heavy aroma of smoke that that would be expected in a house fire that was hot enough to reduce a human body to ash.

Mary Reeser’s case is one of the most famous regarding the phenomena of spontaneous human combustion.

Haunted History – How the Ouija Board became a household name

The concept of the Ouija board is around 130 years old but mankind has been trying to communicate with the dead ever since there were dead folks to communicate with. Back in the day the Romans gifted folks that they called Augurs. These individuals would watch the patterns of bird flight, or how their sacred chickens pecked the ground in order to seek advice from the other side. Later on the craft would include using the guts of sacrificed animals to decipher their messages.

There are legends too that have tried to credit the Oracle at Delphi as well as Pythagoras, an ancient Greek philosopher with having originated the talking board, but, there is no written or archeological evidence that supports those theories so we are left with what we do know.

This dude named Charles Kennard was always out to make a buck, but he wasn’t the greatest, nor the luckiest, businessman. The dude had a bad reputation for being a hack and a thief.

Kennard was the son of a rather successful merchant, and in his younger days, it looked like he may follow in his old man’s footsteps. He’d concocted some kind of secret bone mix blend that he used in a fertilizer. In 1880, When the cash started rolling in, he moves to the east shore of Maryland and opened a manufacturing plant in Chestertown.

At first things were going well but a few years later, the plant went to auction due to a combination of drought, competition, and debt. But as fate would have it, there was a Prussian immigrant named E.C. Reiche that had an office next to Kennard’s in Chestertown’s business district. This dude was a furniture maker turned coffin and undertaker he was also a tinkerer who dabbled in the spiritual world.

Alright, now that I told you that, let me roll it back to the Back story:

Two generations earlier, there were these chicks in upstate New York named the Fox sisters, who were claiming to be mediums. They’d built their reputation on communicating with the other side through series of mysterious “knocks” on a table, kind of like Morse code. These two tramps kicked off a spiritualist movement that spread like wild fire across the whole country. Their timing was perfect too. This was just after the Civil War, so folks were coming in droves hoping to speak with their dead husbands, fathers, brothers and sons.

So, it’s 1886, and both Kennard and Reiche caught wind of these newspaper reports about a “talking board” phenomenon that was sweeping Ohio. Well hell, they wanted in right! So, they start working together on this new project and shortly after they’d created at least a dozen of their own “talking” boards.

“Reiche, who was the biggest coffin maker in town, and the undertaker has successfully found another way to cash in on dead folks! But, it was Kennard that took it on the road.

Kennard leaves Chestertown for Baltimore in 1890, where he tries to breathe life back into his fertilizer business but in the meanwhile, he also started a real-estate business. Once he settled in, he started pitching the talking board invention to potential investors.”

Well, nobody was biting until one day, this lawyer named Elijah Bond catches wind of Kennard’s invention. Bond was well acquainted with spiritualism, his sister in law was a noted medium, that was Kennard’s golden ticket, the Kennard Novelty Company incorporated the day before Halloween 125 years ago and began manufacturing Ouija boards. But it wasn’t just Elijah Bond that helped make that happen, some of the credit goes to his sister in law medium, check this out!

So, the patent office is giving Kennard grief about his little invention. The officer in charge of dispersing patents was, at best, skeptical. So, he asked them to prove that the board really worked—by asking it his name. Bond and his sister in law set the board up and lo and behold, it spelled out the dude’s name! The patent was granted immediately!

And so it began. I’ve told you folks my thoughts on Ouija boards, If you don’t know what you’re doing, leave them the hell alone! These little suckers may be classified as “games” but they ain’t no joke ya’ll. You never know what you’re inviting into your life when you mess with one of these things. How many horror flicks do you have to see to be reminded of what can happen? We’ve talked about this before but I’m reminding you now, The Exorcist and The Conjuring, both kicked off by Ouija Boards, both based TRUE STORIES

It’s easy to be tricked by some of the critters that can be summoned with these boards, you can’t just assume a spirit is who or what they say they are just because they can answer questions correctly, even if the answers are based on some of your deepest darkest secrets. With that being said, Here’s a couple of interesting little Ouija board facts.

1. As we just discussed, Bond was granted his patent with the help of his Ouija board.

 

 

2. A jury used the Ouija board to determine a defendant’s guilt.

In 1993, Harry and Nicola Fuller were murdered not long after they were married. An insurance broker named, Stephen Young, was accused of their murder. After his first trial, Young was convicted—but it soon came out that the jury had used an Ouija board to discover whether or not the man was guilty.

Stephen Young, 46, was jailed for life at Hove Crown Court in March 1994 for shooting Harry Fuller and his wife Nicola at their Wadhurst home in 1993.

The insurance broker, from Pembury, Kent, won the right to a retrial but was convicted again in December 1994. The Court of Appeal in London dismissed his appeal.

A retrial was ordered after it was revealed that four jurors at Young’s original trial consulted a Ouija board before finding Young guilty.

Of course, Ouija board answers are not generally accepted in a court of law so, Young was granted a retrial. He was convicted again during the second trial and sentenced to life in prison.

3. Multiple people have blamed Ouija boards for their murderous actions.

When you ask someone why they’ve done something bad, you may not expect them to say that an Ouija board told them to do it. But that’s just what happened in the murder of Brian Roach. Roach, a former mayor of Minco, Oklahoma, was slaughtered by his mother-in-law in 2001. The mother-in-law, Roach’s wife, and his two daughters had been playing with an Ouija board together when the mother-in-law attacked him. She also tried to kill Roach’s youngest daughter, who she believed was also being possessed.

Here’s the story
Carol Sue Elvaker, 53, was arrested Sunday in Lincoln County, hours after the death of her son-in-law, Brian Roach, 34. She was charged Monday with first-degree murder, said Brett Burns, Grady County assistant district attorney.

Police found Roach dead at his home Sunday from one stab wound to his chest, said Kym Koch, a spokeswoman with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. Although initially viewed as a domestic violence episode, police learned details that suggested something else.

Burns said Elvaker, her daughter Tammy Sue Roach, and Tammy Roach’s two daughters, ages 15 and 10, were playing with a Ouija board while Brian Roach was asleep. Elvaker then attacked Brian Roach, authorities said.

“This is basically the grandmother (Elvaker) saying that Brian Roach needed to die,” Burns said.

Elvaker also is suspected of trying to kill the man’s 10-year-old daughter.

“She thought the 10-year-old was evil and thought the father was evil,” Burns said.

Tammy Roach, 34, took the knife away from Elvaker and hid it in the house. She then left the house with Elvaker and the two children, Koch said.

Elvaker drove the four northeast toward Tulsa on Interstate 44, authorities said. She eventually crashed the car into a road sign in an attempt to kill all of them, Burns said.

Elvaker suffered two broken ankles in the wreck. The others were injured slightly. After getting out of the car, Elvaker tried unsuccessfully to push the 15-year-old daughter into traffic, authorities said.

Despite her injuries, Elvaker ran from the scene, shed all her clothes, jumped over the highway median barrier and ran into a wooded area north of the interstate, Koch said.

Police found her hiding in the woods. She was taken to the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center for treatment, Koch said.

Tammy Roach was arrested Monday on a complaint of being an accessory to murder.

Burns said Brian Roach begged for help, but was allowed to bleed to death. Tammy Roach also hid the knife, supplied the getaway vehicle and didn’t try to get away from Elvaker when she had the chance, Burns said.

Brian Roach’s death ends a piece of Minco’s civic history. In 1986, Roach ran for mayor and won by eight votes. He was only 19 years old at the time.

 

4. Alcoholics Anonymous wouldn’t exist without the Ouija board.

In the 1930s, a man named Bill Wilson was struggling with his alcohol addiction. Told by a doctor that he had a “wet brain” and would therefore struggle with alcohol for the rest of his life or be killed by it, Bill had nearly given up. Then, on December 11, 1934, Bill had a “spiritual breakthrough” and never drank again. Wilson had always be interested in the spiritual world and spiritualism, so he and wife Lois went to their Ouija board to find his next step.

Wilson credited the Ouija board with telling him to reach out to other alcoholics and create his Alcoholics Anonymous group. In a letter to his adviser and priest, Father Dowling, Wilson said that the spirit of a 15th-century monk named Boniface had helped him come up with the proposed structure of AA.

5. Artists turn to the Ouija board for inspiration.
Ouija board

Many writers have turned to the Ouija board for help in creating new stories, not me, there’s enough madness floating around in this brain to where I don’t need any outside inspiration!

The most famous is Bedlam in Goliath, an album by The Mars Volta. The band members bought a Ouija board while traveling in Jerusalem. In their first session with the board, the band was told a story that they decided to use as the centerpiece for their next album. Over the next few weeks, as they recorded the album, a number of terrifying things happened. The studio flooded, causing immense damage, including equipment malfunctions. An engineer had a nervous breakdown, the drummer quit, and a band member’s foot was seriously injured.

There’s a lot of creepy-assed stories about Ouija boards floating around out there. It’s no surprise either right. We know that these suckers have a habit of summoning evil into folks homes. Here’s one little creepy tale I thought you guys might like.

There’s this kind of new story going around about a demon named Zozo also known as Pazuzu. This wicked bastard has been around for centuries and has found Ouija boards a good outlet for wreaking havoc. ZoZo is an ancient force from Hell, that is said to have the ability to shape-shift and possess folks.

In 2009, this dude named Darren Evans became the first person known to have posted his experience with the demon online. Evans had his first experience with ZoZo while using a Ouija board with his girlfriend. After some time ZoZo is said to have threatened Evans’ sister, who nearly died, In the meanwhile there’s all kinds of terrifying incidences going on around him and his family which eventually caused Evans to have a nervous breakdown.

After an extensive exorcism, Evans said that ZoZo left him and his family alone, Now, he runs a site as a ‘Zozologist’ which is a space for others to share their horrifying connections with the demon and is meant to warn others about the perils of using Ouija boards.

Evans’ story inspired filmmakers at One World Studios to create the horror film I Am Zozo in 2012 and has led to Evans’ appearance on the paranormal television series, Ghost Adventures . Evans has also released a book, The Zozo Phenomenon, telling his terrifying tale.

The Belfry – A Creepy New Years Eve Legend

So, there was this old church with a belfry that stood to it’s side. It was a unattractive octagon shaped construction that had only 2 rooms inside. The entire bottom floor was considered 1 room and above it, was the rope room. Not considered a room, was a small vault beneath the main level where lumber and other supplies were stored.

Now, the old guys that were in charge of ringing the bell all had a firm belief that the belfry was haunted. Nobody ever wanted to talk about it, when they were asked they would all have this same weird expression on their face that said they knew something but they weren’t talking. There was only one who had, and it was said that he lost his mind after relaying his ghostly encounter.

None of these old guys would go into the belfry alone after dark, and whether it was day or night, not one of them would venture into the vault. So along comes the younger generation, a group of local dudes from the same area that were being trained to care for the belfry and ring the bells. None of these guys believed the old dudes when they warned that the belfry was haunted. They laughed it off and called the old timers superstitious. Even though they didn’t believe the legends, none of them had bothered to venture into the vault. They spent most of their time in the rope room.

Now this belfry was creepy as hell, even during the daytime. The exterior was beat up and weather-scarred and the interior, dank and uninviting to say the least. There were long, narrow, stained-glass windows on the ground floor, and in the rope-room; but the glass was covered with so much dust that no sunlight was filtered through to light the joint. So now that you have a pretty good idea of how creepy this place was, I’m gonna tell you the best part of the legend.

One New Year’s Eve, at eleven o’clock, a group of the younger bell ringers show up at the belfry, ready to toll the bells at midnight. They’re all sitting around on a bench in the rope room waiting for twelve o clock. Now everybody in this group had been out celebrating and they were for the most part, drunk off their asses. While they’re sitting there passing the time, they’re also passing a bottle around.

So as they’re talking, they realize that they’re missing the party because they’re obligated to ring these dumb-ass bells at midnight. They start joking around about how lame the tradition was and then the conversation turns to the crazy old men that thought the belfry was haunted.

The youngest of these inebriated punks, John Grieves, who was also said to have been the most wasted, grabs a candle and heads off down the stairs. The other guys didn’t even notice him leave. John was off to prove a point. Now, whether or not he would have considered his next move while sober is anyone’s guess, but, drunkie drunk decides he’s going to go down into the vault and prove there was nothing going on there.

So, he stumbled down the stone steps until he reached a small landing. He pushes the heavy door open and entered the vault. He found the room was empty. It was a square shaped cell with a flagged floor. The walls were dry and covered with a thick layer of dust and cobwebs, but the floor appeared to have been swept recently.

The one odd thing that John noted was that the room was as cold as death. In seeing that there were no ghosts hanging out in the vault, Grieves scoffs and heads back to the door to join his drunk friends. As soon as he turns, an ice cold gust of wind blows by him, snuffing his candle. He took one more step forward and his toe was caught on something, he stumbled and fell. Well, your boy was so lit he couldn’t manage to get back up so he crawls over to the nearest wall and passes out.

While he’s out, he has this weird dream. In his dream, he woke to find himself in the vault, it was pitch black and he didn’t know how the hell he’d got there. All of the sudden he hears these heavy footsteps on the stone steps, two monks in black habits come walking in. One of them was carrying a lantern. The monks acted as if they didn’t see Grieves.

They walk to the center of the room and pry up one of the large flags with an iron bar. Underneath the stone was a square hole. The monks descended through the opening, Grieves could hear the scraping sound of their feet climbing down. Now he’s freaking the hell out, he’s pinned as close to that wall as he can get, and he’s listening so intensely to what these monks are doing down in that hole that he was hardly even breathing. He could hear them talking but couldn’t make out what they were saying. After that, he hears the unmistakable sound of a pick and a shovel working the soil.

Eventually curiosity overcame his fear, he crawled to the opening and peeked inside. He saw one of the monks digging a hole, the other one was examining a corpse that was clad in a monk’s habit. Grieves has his oh shit moment and clammers back to the wall. He continues listening. The digging stops and all the sudden there’s a dull thud, the corpse had been thrown into the hole. After that, he hears a voice, clear and distinct. “Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,” it said. “Et lux perpetua luceat eis,” another voice responded.

The monks were reciting a burial service. After that, he hears the shovels go back to work. It was around that time when he woke himself up babbling something incoherent. He rolled over then went back to sleep. Midnight had come and gone, the bells didn’t even wake him.

It was nearly daybreak when something cold and damp brushed across his face. He rubbed his eyes and looked around. It took him a minute before he realized where the hell he was, but he didn’t have any idea how he’d got there. He fumbles around in his pockets and found a match, then lit his candle.

His dream then came back vividly in his mind. So, he takes the candle and starts looking around at the floor, looking for a flag with a ring on it. He was sober now and his head was pounding but he was compelled to keep looking. Suddenly the largest flagstone in the center of the room began rising on its own. It fell away from the hole but made no noise. Grieves could see the square hole that it had been covering, just like in his “dream”

A moment later a monk in a dirty black habit emerges from the hole. The skin on his face was stretched tightly across his bones like parchment paper, there was no flesh on him. His eyes were missing yet their sockets were glowing, in his hand he carried a wooden crucifix. This monk, just like the others, didn’t seem to notice him. John watched as he mouthed something that appeared to resemble a prayer, yet no sound came from his gaping mouth.

The Monk walked across the floor and then passed through the closed door. At this point John follows him. The monk passes across the ground floor and starts up the steps to the rope room. He reached for the rope that was attached to the tenor bell and began to pull it. John saw the rope move with his own eyes but no sound came from the bell. For those of you that don’t know, the tenor bell is rung to signify someone’s passing, the poor bastard was ringing the bell for himself.

Well John had seen enough. He hauled ass from the belfry and never returned. A week later a priest was surprised to receive an envelope containing two sovereigns and a note requesting him to say masses for the repose of the soul of an unknown monk.

John Grieves never told anyone what he’d seen until many years later. He was walking to town with his family on the road where the church stood. They passed a procession of monks with their heads bowed, the last of them looked up to acknowledge him, John was face to face with the ghost of the monk he’d encountered in the belfry. That very same day, the belfry was destroyed by fire.

The dark origination behind Christmas Carolling

97.ac-1

There’s nothing more joyous and uplifting than a group of well harmonized carolers crooning at your front door right! Yeah, let me give you guys the back story on how this yule tide tradition got started, you’re gonna love this shit!

So, The year is 1888 in the Whitechapel District of London, sound familiar? it should! Londoners are trembling in terror due to a rash of horrifically gruesome and yet to be solved, murders that have brought the community to it’s cautious knees. Yep, Jack the Ripper was in his prime. Even though he kept his “business” focused on the city’s hookers, everyone was terrified that they could be his next victim.

Ok, so, it’s the week before Christmas and a young local girl, Carol Poles, has disappeared. With a serial killer on the loose and an array of other various shifty folks out on the streets, Carol’s friends and family feared for her life. Police had been made to look like bumbling fools in the Ripper’s wake. There had been searches of abandoned buildings and heavily wooded parks. Waterways had been dredged and there had been 100’s of interviews and still The officials had no answers or clues.

So the community gathers together and decides to look for Carol on their own. They decided to go door to door in search of information. The problem with that was, the community was so shaken by the latest gruesome murder, that no one would unbolt their doors after dark. The mangled body of Mary Kelley, Jack the Ripper’s final victim, had just recently been discovered, getting folks to cooperate with their search was going to be a challenge.

So after knocking on several unanswered doors the group decided to sing traditional Christmas songs upon their arrival at each house. This would surely soothe the fears of the occupants that they wished to question.

Well, young Carol was never found, perhaps she is an undiscovered victim of the Ripper, maybe, she “was” the Ripper, we may never know. But, she did leave her own legacy and now you know all about it. The Community continued the tradition of Christmas Caroling every year thereafter in memoriam of Carol’s disappearance, and now Carolling is a Christmas tradition all around the globe. Just think, if you’ve ever been a Caroller, you were actually out searching for one of Jack the Ripper murder victims!

Haunted History – The Ostrich Inn

Ok, so now I have a crazy creepy story to tell you about a haunted Inn in Colnbrook, England! The Ostrich Inn is thought to be one of the three oldest structures in this area. Originally constructed around 1106, builder Milo Crispin, would then donate “the hospice of Colbrook” to Abingdon Abbey under the stipulation that the hospice should be held in trust “for the good travelers in this world and the salvation of their souls in the next”. You see, a hospice was basically a Inn that was run by a religious sect. As far as how a “hospice” became known as the Ostrich Inn, well, the legends are unclear.

So, this little Inn has been host to quite a few notable folks through history. In its earlier days King John and Queen Elizabeth were have said to taken refuge here, and of course there’s a laundry list of other well known names to add to these two, one of the most interesting is Dick Turpin who was in hiding at the ostrich upon his capture.

Turpin was a known thief and murderer that made a good living off of hijacking travelers along the same route where the Ostrich was. After having barely escaped capture a few times, Turpin changed his name, cleaned up and went to stay at the Inn. A few days after his arrival some authorities were passing through. After having observed Turpin for the afternoon, they became curious as to how he funded his lifestyle and immediately suspected him as a horse thief, which he was! So the authorities decide to question him, when they start knocking at his door he jumps out of the second floor window and hauls ass. So they catch him and lock his ass up but are still confused as to his identity because he keeps giving them his new, fake, name. Then the dumb-ass writes a letter home to his brother that clearly identifies him. When the letter gets into the hands of the authorities they charge him with two counts of horse theft and then executed him.

Now, the Inn that stands today is a renovation and addition of the original structure that was built in the 1500’s. The addition of two storefronts and a long gallery across the rear of the structure hardly made a change in the appearance, but times were good during the 1500’s and additional amenities were needed to attract patrons.

So whether or not the Ostrich Inn was haunted before its renovation is unknown, this sucker started earning the most atrocious of its badges in the 1700’s. So the bulk of the credit for the haunted history associated with the Ostrich Inn goes to a man named Jarman who served as the landlord.

So apparently wages as a landlord sucked back in the day cause Jarman and his wife quickly devised a plan on how to supplement their income. The Inn was strategically constructed on the main stagecoach path between London and Bath, a lot of its patrons were traveling to or from Windsor castle, which meant they were loaded and were usually carrying large sums of currency or valuables. Many of these folks would stop in to rest, clean up and change clothes before making their appearance at the castle, many of them had brought along vast sums of money in order to pay off the courts, otherwise, bribe somebody right?!

So Jarman and his wife paid close attention to those guests, they got fantastic service! They would be wined and dined and of course drugged, all while Jarman is buddying up to them. At the end of the night, after having made the guest feel that there was a kinship between them, Jarman would offer them the best room in the house.

Uh-huh, let me tell you about this room ya’ll. So the guest would be led upstairs to a beautiful room where there was a massive four poster bed with canopy all dressed up in the best of linens. When the guest crawled in to the inviting bed and passed out, Jarman and his wife would go to the kitchen. Yeah, the kitchen was directly under the best room in the house. So Jarman would remove two bolts from a joist in the kitchen ceiling, which caused the bed above them to tilt downward, depositing the inebriated guest into a massive vat of boiling water. The poor bastards never knew what hit them.

Jarman would then take the guests horse and carriage and clothes to the local gypsies and sell them at a discounted rate. The gypsies didn’t give a damn where it came from, they were getting a hell of a deal on some high class stuff, so they kept their mouths shut, why spoil a good thing right!? So then Jarman would take whatever was left of their boiled corpse down to the river and throw it in. Now, I need to stop a minute here folks. If Jarman and his old lady were frugal enough to kill their guests and sell their personal items to the gypsies to make more money, why didn’t they use the meat to feed their guest? I’m just saying.

So anyway, Jarman gets away with this shit for years. It’s estimated that they boiled over 60 guests just to rob them. It was all gravy until this one guest though. So this dude wakes up shortly after he passes out, he rolls out of bed and starts stumbling around the room looking for the chamber pot. When he finishes his business he turns around to go get back into the bed and sees it tilted down through the floor. The dude’s curious so he walks over to the edge of the floor and looks down. So he freaks the hell out when he sees the boiling cauldren just inches beneath the foot of the bed. Even in his drunken stupor he knows what the hell is up so he starts screaming at the top of his lungs, waking up all of the other guests.

So the guests run in to see what the hell is going on and when they gather at the edge of the floor to see the boiling cauldren below, they apprehend Jarman and send for the authorities. Jarman is arrested and starts bragging about how many folks he had murdered before ever being caught. Kind of an idiot dick move right?! So, he was tried and hanged for his crimes, but at least he wasn’t boiled!

So at the Inn today there is still a working model of the tilt a boil bed, in fact there are many of the original facets of the Ostrich still intact right now. For example, there is a flap that can be let down from a window on the first level floor that when lowered it creates a walk way for the carriage drivers so that they could enter the building without having to climb down from their carriages.

So, you bet this bad boy is haunted! There are of course the typical signs such as voices, footsteps, closing doors and appliances that turn off and on, but there are a ton of pissed off ghosts that reside at the Inn. Now there are others that were not among Jarman’s victims, such as a woman that appears in Victorian dress and a young girl that is rumored to have hanged herself from a beam on the upper level of the house. There have also been several encounters near the bar with a gentleman that identifies himself as John. He is quite vocal and has known to carry on somewhat lengthy conversations. John has stated than when he was alive it was Queen Elizabeth that held the throne.

The bar is very active, there is a suit of armor and a fireplace that have a lot of orb activity around them, Besides the bar is the Jacobean room which is mostly used for functions now days. Many folk report that they feel like they’re in a crowded room. Several spirits have made themselves visible, appearing in garments that look to be from the mid to late 16th century. Though there is a lot of activity here, the room seems to hold a a pleasant feeling.

The Elizabethean room is home to a dark and daunting force that looms over you while you’re there, there is also something that seems to hover just outside of the window, leering angrily at anyone that dares to enter the room. He may be the same dark shadowy figure that has often been photographed in or around this room.

The stairs and women’s rest room, that are in close proximity to each other, have tons of activity. The restroom is where the pantry used to be. Jarman stored the boiled bodies here until the opportune time came for him to discard them in the river without being seen. This area has a orb activity, shadowy figures, putrid smells and a sickening oppressive sensation. Wonder why, right?! Many visitors have complained with their ears ringing in this area.

And then there’s the attic where whispers and cold spots are frequently recorded, there are even accounts of something freezing cold that comes bolting down the steps, pushing aside anyone that may be climbing up or just standing at the bottom, contemplating the climb.

From the attic to the cellar, where staff all but refuses to go to restock the bar. Way too many times folks have gone down there only to have the door close behind them and the lights go out. In the darkness there are the forms of shadowy creatures that swirl around, some giggling at you until you find your way back out.

Then there’s the Blue room, there is some mad crazy shit going on in here ya’ll. There’s a bunch of documentation on this room, many accounts that were filmed. So, it’s said that if you go down into this room that you begin to look like someone or something else. So there was this one team of paranormal investigators that decided to test it out, yeah it happened ya’ll. They sit this one dude on a stool and aim a camera at him them turn off the lights. The guys eyes start darting all over the place like he’s watching something bounce back and forth. This goes on for a little while and then it’s like he all of the sudden is sitting in a mist. The observers lean in closer to see that his eyes are closed, he hadn’t been looking all around the room. At the point when they realized that, his skin appeared wrinkled and his hands and arms twisted as if he had severe arthritis, a quick glance back to his face, he had morphed into a haggard old man with long crazy hair.

After having had these results they tried to experiment with another member of the team. This time things were different nothing changed with this dude’s appearance, but something crazy did happen. This gentleman became despondent and was talking out of his head. He acted as if he didn’t know who the other members of the team were. As he spoke with the other team members the muscles in his face contorted, his voice influctions and mannerisms changed drastically. When he started getting confrontational, one of the other team members repeatedly called his name until he snapped out of the trance like state. After the event was over, the guy said that he was comfortable the whole time and that he had been communicating with them. The problem was that the conversation he thought he was having with the other team members was not what the one that had been recorded.

Then they tried one last time. Another team member took the stool, this guy supposedly has a long dark beard. After sitting in the chair for a few moments the guy appears to be bare faced, not nearly as eerie as the first two experiments but certainly freaky enough to mention, if you ask me.

Haunted History – The Adelphi Hotel

Today I’m hooking you up with a haunted hotel in Liverpool, the Adelphi Hotel. Paranormal experiences have been reported at this site for years now, and some are far more disturbing than others. The apparition of a 15 year old bell boy, complete with cap and uniform has been known to pick up visitor’s luggage before mysteriously disappearing. The ghostly bell boy is thought to be Raymond Brown who died after getting trapped in a baggage lift in 1961.

Another more gruesome death at the Adelphi was that of ‘George’, who committed suicide in the hotel during the 1930’s and has been seen calling to pedestrians from one of the upper level windows. One can only imagine how this poor bastard spent his last few hours alone in his room, and the possible imprint of his traumatic death has definitely left a scar.

There’s also a pickpocket ghost that hangs out at the Adelphi. The ghost of this chick has been busted searching through the guests belongings in the middle of the night, but once she’s confronted she disappears before their eyes. Nobody knows what she’s looking for, or who she is.

Then some folks have a crazy encounter with another female spirit. Imagine waking up in the middle of the night and seeing this chick with long black hair standing beside your bed staring down at you. No one knows this chick’s story, but she’s got a thing for stroking the hair of male guests.

Now all of these apparitions are pretty creepy but they’re not the cream of the crop here. One of the most eerie stories from the Adelphi is the elevator whistler. This terrifying apparition stands behind folks in the elevator, whistling and breathing down their necks. There’s no record of who this particular spirit might be, but he’s been known to tap passengers on the shoulder!

Another of the most well known ghosts here is said to have been there since the place was built. In was 1912, and the Titanic was about to set sail from Liverpool to America. As we already know, this boat was packed with wealthy passengers, many of them had spent the night at the Adelphi before boarding.

We all know how that little pleasure cruise turned out, right! Well, apparently the ghosts of some of those hotel guests wish they’d just stayed on there. This dude Tom Slemen is a paranormal writer who had a wild experience there, Tom actually saw three apparitions in the Sefton Suite, which is actually a replica of the Titanic’s First Class Smoking Lounge.

These three ghosts were wearing naval uniform when they appeared at the far end of the room, at that time, Tom wasn’t the only person there and in fact, everyone else saw this thing go down too.

These ghosts were all obviously members of the Titanic crew, one of them was a dead ringer, pardon the pun, of Captain Edward Smith himself.

Besides these, there’s that apparition of a spirit that must have had an awesome time at the Adelphi Bar cause he, or she is still hanging out there today.  This comes as no surprise as many guests have enjoyed the opportunity to rub elbows with some very famous folks here!

There’s tons of other stories too. There’s plenty of folks that have spotted a Victorian lady in grey, hanging out in the basement and there’s tales of another ghost that’s seen hanging out of one of the upper level windows. Whenever someone is sent to check that room, there of course is no one there and the window is found to be locked. Some lucky guests have even been photo-bombed by ghosts here at the Adelphi as well!

It’s no huge surprise that why there are so many spirits lingering around here. There have been 3 hotels built on this site over a period of 190 years – that’s an whole lot of history for one spot!

 

The first hotel was built here in 1826 for James Radley. It was actually a conversion of two 18th Century town houses that were built on the site of the former Ranelagh Gardens, the first open space for public recreation in Liverpool.

This hotel was replaced by another hotel in 1876, which was bought in 1892 by the Midland Railway, and renamed the Midland Adelphi. Liverpool was a major hub for ocean liners during the early 20th century, and the Adelphi was the most popular hotel in the city for wealthy passengers. Guests at the hotel have included world leaders, such as Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. Other well known folks that stayed there were Frank Sinatra, Laurel and Hardy, Judy Garland, Bob Dylan, Roy Rogers and his horse Trigger.
