My Mother’s Visit

My Mother’s Visit

I do not consider my dream to be anything out of the normal, but you can be your own judge on it. All I know is that a dream saved my sanity. My mother suffered terribly and died of cancer when she was 45 years old and I was 26....
Great Grandfather’s Ball Of Fire

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...
Aunt Kate

Aunt Kate

My Grandmother told this story to me. According to her when she was a child, an old woman lived next door to her and her family in the small coal town of Nolan. My Grandmother stated that many strange things happened in and around the old woman's home. On...
The Devil’s Visit

The Devil’s Visit

I used to be a very religious person and attended church regularly. I had just gotten married, about two months previously, when a lot of things went wrong in my life and one day, I just gave up and quit going. My husband went to work real early in the...
Seventh Son

Seventh Son

This is a short, second hand account about my grandfather. The way I was told is that my grandfather, Benjamin Green had healing powers. He was the seventh son of the seventh son, and in the bible, it's said that these individuals can say a certain verse out of...

In 1983, I was living and working for a large nuclear power plant in southern California. I had just returned to work from having an emergency surgery. It was about ten minutes until quitting time, when an employee came through my workstation and I had to search him before...

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...
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...

My family and I were staying at Twin Falls State Park one year and decided to hike one of the trails. This trail was one where the state parks boundary meets someone’s private land. We saw a barrel hanging from a tree approximately 200 feet off the trail and...
Bobby’s Guardian Angel

Bobby’s Guardian Angel

In my other submissions to this site, I have mentioned West Virginian spirits or "ghosts" that seem to follow me around the country. This, too, is one of those instances. In 1989, my daughter was on her way to the hospital to deliver a baby boy, in hard labor. It...

Area Witch II

Yes, it's true, it's true. The original "Group of Four" has returned for a sequel to scare the pants off of you. Only this time there is only three witnesses. In the woods of Peterstown, there is a presence that is making us all almost too scared to leave...
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...
