Investigation Update 4.26

What a great week of investigations! Here's what's been going on:

On Monday night, we had some great activity. One of the groups who investigated with us were avid paranormal investigators. When the ladies moved into the Gribble House Area all three of them could hear the smell of flowers and perfume and they heard from quite a few women through the Ghost Box. The women were hard to hear though, like they were very far away. Toward the end of their time in the Gribble House, they could hear a very clear "Get out".

One of the girls, Amber, said she felt uneasy for a good portion of the tour. At one point, she was seated near the door and felt like someone or something was tugging on her shirt sleeve! Then later, in the Residual Area, she felt pressure on her back, like she was trying to be pushed out of her chair.

The other group who investigated was really into the paranormal as well. They got quite a bit of good activity. The spirits didn't seem to pleased to have us around- in fact one of of the guests asked if the group was bothering them and "Yes" came through. Then he asked if they wanted us to leave and "Go", "Go Away" came through the Ghost Box.

In the Slave Quarters, they heard from Steve, Sabrina, Richard, John and Rebecca. One investigator, Chrissy, said that in the Slave Quarters she had a very bad headache, and that it felt like her ears were burning.

We had a good night on Tuesday, too. They got quite a few intelligent responses through the Ghost Boxes. In every hot spot the crew went into, they heard "Yusef" and "Leave" several times. One of the ladies, Brenda, had an interesting conversation with Paul at the Stage Area and the Slave Quarters. When she got into the Slave Quarters, she asked if Paul had followed her into there and "Stupid", then "Brenda" came through.

There's apparently a dentist spirit in the Warehouse. For several days now, our investigators have gotten "mouth" related responses through the Ghost Box. On Tuesday they heard "Tooth" and "Dead" come through!

Wednesday night was "nice"... especially for one group who investigated! Every time this one particular group would ask questions through the Ghost Box, they would get the response of "nice". Over and over, "nice", "nice".

The Gribble House area was very popular that night. Most of the guests caught the scent of jasmine. At one point it was so strong that they had to step out of the area for a moment. In that area, they heard the names Woody and Smith. In addition, the group's speaker kept turning off. One group, in addition to smelling the jasmine smell, caught the scent of wet paint! When they mentioned it "Green paint" came through the Ghost Box.

Yet again, on Thursday night, the smell of perfume and flowers was incredibly strong in the Gribble House area. It was so strong our lead investigator, Susannah, had to leave and come back. She was on the verge of sneezing the whole night! They heard from those same ladies through the Ghost Box on Monday night, and yet again they were hard to understand.

The Slave Quarters had the most activity. They heard from Michael, Mike, Steve, Ed and Johnny. Johnny sounded like a teenaged boy, like fourteen or fifteen, and it seemed like it was hard from him to communicate- like it was taking a large amount of effort to come through. Terri, one of the investigators, tried to communicate with Noah, the little boy. She asked him if he'd like to play with the Raggedy Ann doll, and a soft little boy voice said "I can't".

The Spirit Box or Ghost Box was out of control on Friday night. There was a ton of activity through the entire building. Right when they first got started investigating for the evening, "William" came through. When they asked who that was, they heard "Yes, that's me". They also then heard "fire" spoken in a long drawn out manner. This is when they first heard the "Shhhhh"ing and whispering come through the Ghost Box. This was a common occurrence the entire night through the entire warehouse.

Some of the conversation through the Ghost Box was kind of violent. They heard "Bullet" come through twice, then "Shooting", "Kill" and "Killed". Then "Help" and "Help me" came through.

And finally, last evening. We had quite a few relevant conversations responses through the Ghost Box. They group investigating asked if they should run and they heard "Run" and "Yes".

Paul came through the Ghost Box, and when asked if it was Paul, they got the response of "Yes". One guy asked if the spirit was standing next to his girlfriend (Sherry) and "Yes" came through. Then her name, "Sherry" was spoken.

Near the Gribble House area, one of the groups investigating asked if there were any children there. "One child" came through. Through questions and answers, they were able to find out that this little boy died from Yellow Fever. And yet again, they could hear those very faint women trying to come through the Ghost Box.

Investigation Update 4.19.2015

It was a drizzly and rainy week here in Savannah, but that doesn't stop us from investigating inside the Gribble House! Here's the evidence we collected...

Monday night had a lot of activity in the Slave Quarters, especially with the Raggedy Ann Doll. At one point, the temperature dropped a full ten degrees, from 64 to 54! When the group started using the Ghost Pros, one woman went to go behind the curtain. She told everyone it felt like something was trying to yank the curtain back shut.

One of the couples investigating that night had contact with Jacob. They heard from Yusef, Kevin, Ian, Seth, Jacob, Steve, Ben and Carrie. One of the more interesting things that happened was when you could distinctly hear the sound of a woman singing come through the Ghost Box. Very cool!

We had a very interesting night on Wednesday. One of the couples who joined us was a mother/ daughter team of Deb and Jen. Deb is a sensitive and an avid investigator. Another woman who joined us was Barbara, who is a sensitive as well. There was so much activity that night, it's hard to pin down the more interesting evidence!

The REM Pod was very active- in fact, it went off on cue for almost fifteen minutes. The three ladies were using it as a communication device with a little child, who was about five years old. Strange sounds were everywhere. Near the Gribble House gate, Jen and Kelley could hear the sound of what they thought to be keys jangling. When they were standing in the center of the warehouse, they could hear the sound of cards being shuffled very loud and very fast.

While they were in the Slave Quarters using the Ghost Box it seemed like there was a group of spirits that wanted to converse with the ladies. Whenever Deb would ask a question, the spirits seemed to converse among themselves before answering anything. One of the spirits they conversed with was a man, who said he was a slave. He told Deb she was "White" and that he "Hates whites". Paul came through the Ghost Box on Wednesday night, as well.

The other investigator, Barbara, heard "Fire" come through, and then she and Kelley got very heavy hot flashes that made them sweat.

Thursday night was great, too. Almost all of the areas of the building were very active. Near the Gribble House area, phantom smells were very strong. The same flower/ perfume smell was so strong that some of the investigators who were walking nearby could smell it! But then, the smell changed from perfume to the smell of cigarette smoke. It was so strong that Susannah, the lead investigator, thought perhaps there was a fire in the building! Throught the Ghost Box they asked if anyone was smoking. "Cig" and then "Does it bother you" came through just after. One of the investigators said yes, and the smell slowly went away.

Near the Stage Area, a group was able to make contact with a little girl named Leah. With a little encouragement, they coaxed Leah to play with the Raggedy Ann doll. Through the Ghost Box they heard her say "Play", but they could also hear the sounds of a child crying.

Last night was just as great, with lots of activity. Quite a few names were heard through the Ghost Box; Paul, Cory, Reese, Priscilla, William, Nancy, James, Anne, Jesus, Reggie, Mandy, and Raven. One group investigating at the Stage Area made contact with a little boy spirit. One of the women in that group described his presence as a mist sitting on the floor with her, touching her leg. Another group who investigated at the Stage Area made contact with Paul, who was his usual grumpy self. Priscilla, one of the investigators, had great luck with the Raggedy Ann doll, and it lit up with her a lot.

At the end of the night while everyone was getting ready to leave, the EMF and the Ghost Meter were going off together just after Priscilla had placed them on the table. Then the Doll went off like crazy until she put that on the table as well. Cool!

Hopefully next week will bring better weather. But rain or shine, the Gribble House Crew is always ready for an investigation!

Investigation Update 4.12.2015

A busy, busy week of activity! Here's what evidence we collected this week in the Gribble House...

On Monday evening, the groups investigating heard quite a bit from a spirit named Yusef. He told one group that he was 29 years old, and the other that he was under 30. When one mother and daughter group asked him if he knew a spirit named Caroline, they got the answer of "Yes". When they asked Yusef if he protected Caroline, he told them he did. They were able to find out that Yusef was not from Savannah, but that he did die here. Yusef seemed to follow this mother and daughter through the warehouse throughout the entire evening.

The other group of ladies investigating on Monday night had some amazing EMF activity. It went off several times on command, going all the way up to the red! When they asked who was touching the device, they were told it was "David" and "Dave". When the group of women were trying to go back into the Slave Quarters late in the evening, they heard "Bad" and "No" come through the Ghost Box...

Wednesday was a really good night for evidence collecting, as well. Kelley and Dani were our lead investigators, and they broke everyone up into two groups. There seemed to be a lot of strange shadows moving in the building that night. At one point, Dani thought she caught a glimpse of a shadow over her shoulder, and one of the ladies investigating asked her if she had seen something move behind her!

A lot of people heard the name "Yusef" come through the Ghost Box this night, but each time his name was spoken, the name "Robert" would be said just before or just after. Quite a few of the people investigating had their names spoken, including Kelley, Doug, Mike and Sue.

The Slave Quarters was very active on Wednesday, as well. One man investigating went into the room and developed a splitting headache almost as soon as he went in. He told Kelley it felt like his head was in a vice- so much so he felt nauseous.

The investigators on Thursday night made a lot of small talk with the spirits in the Gribble House. This means that they managed to get a lot of intelligent responses through the Ghost Boxes to their direct questions. One of the ladies investigating was asking questions about Eliza Gribble. She asked if Mrs. Gribble was a nice lady, "Yes". She then asked if her daughter had been murdered, "Yes". She asked if she was being followed, "Yes".

One of a pair of sisters investigating saw the figure of a tall man, but when she asked her sister to shine the light on him, the figure disappeared.

On Friday evening, the group investigating asked if there were any children in the Residual Area, and the voice of a little girl came through and said "Leave me alone". Kait, our lead investigator, asked what her name was, and a man's voice answered "Jennipher".

Near the Gribble House area, one of the groups was using an EMF detector. They asked the spirit they were conversing with to touch the light, and it went off on demand. When they told him that was really cool, the spirit responded "Thanks" through the Ghost Box.

One really interesting thing that happened on Friday night was near the end of the evening. Kait was standing near the center of the warehouse, and saw a black figure walk across the Slave Quarters doorway. Right at the same time, the group near the Stage Area saw that same figure come across the cameras on the TV.

Saturday night, we had a lot of small talk again- lots of intelligent responses to direct questions. One investigator asked the spirit they were conversing with if he would like to follow them to the next room, "No". A group of six women asked if the spirits knew how many ladies were there, "Six". Awesome!

At the Stage Area, at least one women in every group tonight got called some very nasty names- "Whore", "Slut", "Bitch". But, one group heard a little girl say "Mommy" near the Stage area, as well.

A group of ladies investigating at the Residual Area got corrected on Saturday night, as well. One lady asked a spirit if he was setting of the Motion Sensor and the Ghost Meter "Near the blue curtains" and "BLACK" came through the Ghost Box.

A lot of names came through that night- names like Steve, Henry, Mike, Paul, and Will, or William. One of the men investigating said that Will was the name of his late father- and that name and voice followed him throughout the building.

All in all, a great week for the Gribble House crew and investigators!
