The Vision

The Vision

All her life my grandma seemed to have the gift, if you would like to call it that, to see events, which had not yet occurred, either through dreams, visions or a feeling she would get about something. In February of 1948 my grandfather was working as a contract lineman...

Warning In A Dream

Back in the spring of 2002 my mother-in-law began to show signs of a terminal illness. She was losing weight and wasn't doing well at all. We tried to get her to go to the hospital but, she was very stubborn and refused. My husband and I talked and...

Dancing Lights

My father had always told me about these "lights" that dance whenever someone dies. They start in the family graveyard, go up in the field and then back to the graveyard. Only a few people in the family had seen this. On March 23, 1998 my father died. My...

Great Grandfather’s Ball Of Fire

This is a story my dad told me when I was little. It all started when my grandfather was up in age and couldn't take too much aggravation. The grand kids would come over to stay all night. There were two sisters who would fight, they would pull each...

Two of my friends were hiking through the woods behind the Regal Oaks housing development a little while ago. They hiked for what they said was around two hours. There is a trail, and the land is very remote. In several places, my friends noted, that the trail was...
Strange Coincidence

Strange Coincidence

My roommate, another friend, and I had a strange encounter about two years ago that recently came together for me about a week ago. I'm not exactly a skeptic when it comes to Ouija boards and had experimented a few times before, but after that night and a conversation...

Recently, a friend of mine came in to visit from out-of-state. We were surfing the net trying to find some fun things to do around here when we came upon this site. Since neither of us really had any stories of our own to tell, we decided to go...
Dad’s Token

Dad’s Token

Around 1947 my father and mother built a two story frame house in the hollow of Grant County, known as Iman Hollow. Back then there was no electric running to the house, until several years later. Kerosene lamps, candles, and flashlights were the source of light after darkness fell. I...
