The start of our week was Sunday, and Willie was our lead investigator. On this evening, Willie had a mother and son team to investigate with, as well as a couple, and a super enthusiastic bachelorette group.
By far, the most active piece of equipment that night was the EMF Detector- especially in the Gribble House hot spot. Willie set one of EMF Detectors up on the railing just between the Stage and the Gribble and it was going off like mad throughout the entire night. The names of the investigators kept coming through the Ghost Box, as well. Two of the ladies in the bachelorette party had their names called, as did the mom. Pretty cool!
Willie took the lead again on Monday night with a family of four, and a couple who are ghost hunting professionals. The couple came completely prepared to explore the building, bringing their own Ovilus and MEL Meter.
For the first time in a long time for Willie, the REM Pod went off in the building! During the history portion of the pre-investigation, Willie had it set up right in front of the gate near the Gribble House hot spot. It started going off and on for about ten minutes before it was quiet again for the rest of the evening. So strange.
The couple investigating had some incredible luck with their MEL Meter and Ovilus- some of the most words coming up on the screen of the Ovilus they had ever had in an investigation. Their MEL Meter was just as active, flashing all the way up to 7 at some times. The family, who had their two daughter with them, had some fantastic activity around them, too. The mom had her named called through the Ghost Box, and one of the daughters was touched.
Kait was our lead investigator on Monday night this past week. They started their evening in the Slave Quarters, where the Raggedy Ann doll was flashing steadily throughout the entire time the investigators were in there. It seemed like the Raggedy Ann doll and the EMF Detector were flashing in congruence with one another.
One of the groups made contact with Carrie in the Gribble House area, as well as a spirit who called himself David. Carrie communicated with the investigators using the EMF Detector and was answering questions by making the device flash- sometimes all the way up to the red. One of the investigators asked Carrie if she was heartbroken, and the device went up to red. Each time they talked about her having a broken heart, the device would flash.
Kelley took the lead on Wednesday night, kicking off her week with us. On this night, it seemed like the Spirit Box was the most popular piece of equipment. There were some really great back and forths with this device. Female voices kept trying to come through, and it seemed like there were several male spirits following around the ladies in the building.
The Slave Quarters was very active that night. They asked "Do you have any children", and the response was "Six". "Did you own slaves", they asked. "I did" came the reply. "How did you treat your slaves" they asked then. "Nice". Just after this, a long and painful scream was heard coming through the Ghost Box.
The other group investigating had just as much activity in the Slave Quarters. They asked for names and heard Vincent, Ian, Rob, Patrick, Jeff, AJ, Ted, Paul, and Tom. The Spirit Box was super active for these investigators, as well. They asked "Can you move the doll", to which they heard "Can't... no". Then they asked "Do you need help". "Yes... sure". Finally they asked "How did you die". To this they heard a loud and urgent "WHAT?" come through, followed by "Sick".
On Friday night, Kelley was our lead investigator with some great folks and some great action. Certain words came through the Ghost Box several times. They heard "Leave", "What", "Blink", and strangely "Wood Shed".
Lots of names came through the Ghost Box when the investigators asked "Who is here with us". They heard Kelley, Gary, Paul, Peter, Steve, David Tyler, Charles, Steve, and Paul. But, when the investigators had asked who is with us, the Ovilus wasn't showing names, but some pretty disturbing words. They saw Foe, Enemy, and Demon.
One of the groups, four ladies, seemed to have a few spirits that were following them around the building, specifically one very deep male voice. They heard him in almost every hot spot of the building. They also had a very interesting phrase come through the Ghost Box in the Residual Area. One of the girls noticed that the K-II Meter was flashing and she asked "Where is the ghost guy making it go off?". Through the Spirit Box they heard a faint "Facing the chair". So cool!
Finally, Kelley was our lead again on Saturday night through two awesome investigations. There was a lot of energy buzzing around the building, with the investigators AND the devices. Everyone heard the word "Leave" and the name Tom, and everyone heard the investigator Zoe's name come through, which is pretty cool. The same male voice came through for all three groups saying the same word- "Sick".
There was some pretty foul language coming through the Spirit Box all over the building. They heard "Bitch", "Asshole", "Whore" and "Idiot". When the investigators mentioned that there was some nasty language coming through, they heard the curious word "Friend" as a reply. "Friend" they asked. "Sure", came through not once, but twice.
The second investigation was just as awesome. During this investigation, they heard the names Ash, Steve, Grace, Orville, Enoch, John, and Paul come through. The Ovilus was flashing some strange words, too. They saw Catholic Ghost, Idiot, Predict, and Truck in the Gribble House area, and then in the Slave Quarters they read Harvest, Past, Bible, and Lift It.
In the Slave Quarters, the "N" word came through a lot more than usual. The investigators asked "Are there any slaves here", to which they heard the "N" word as a response. The word peppered the rest of the conversation, even when other responses were coming through. Children's voices started coming through, so they asked "Do you like the birds". "Yea", a child's voice replied. "Are you alone", they asked the child. "Yea, I are", they replied, in the same child's voice. So sad.
Lots of activity, and lots of happy investigators- that means a good week for us! If you see any images of yourself- tag it! We don't mind!
