Bruceton Legend

Bruceton Legend

This happened to me and a friend in 2010. We were in the 7th grade and talked a lot after school on the phone. Well, we were talking one night and she told me that another house had burnt down in Bruceton. Ok, usually that's not a ghost thing,...
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...

Frightful Events

This event happened when I was about 10 years old, in 1950. We lived in an old log house set halfway up a hill in the middle of a pasture field.  There were no houses within a half mile of us. A barbed wire fence completely surrounded the house...

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...
Warning In A Dream

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...
