The hub pages most unbelievable story

I decided to pass on a true story to you all, which is unbelievable at best. It surpasses the "Amittyville Horror" by leaps and bounds. I had already written a ghostly stories hub, which I want to thank you all so graciously for voting it for a hub-nugget award. I first considered putting this story into my ghostly stories hub, but this story has a total life of it's very own. Like I have already said this story is unbelievable, but it's very true.

First I would like to say that I'm not going to use any real names in this story, or even tell you the exact location of where this story takes place, other then it did happen in the United States of America. The reason for this is because this story is very real, and I don't want any reprisals from this world or beyond.

First let me give you some history of where this story takes place. This story does take place in the Southern part of the United States. This area was first inhabited by native American Indians, who were being persecuted by European settlers. A matter of fact both roads and towns in this area are named after Indian terms and words. Later when the Indians moved on, there were big Southern plantation houses scattered around this area. Tobacco and warm weather crops were farmed throughout the whole area. In the 20th century textile mills moved in, and dammed up the local rivers for their use. Thanks to the government and their NAFTA bill those companies are now gone, and the houses they built to house all of their workers are still here today.

Now the old timers say that when they built all of these houses, that a horse drawn saw mill came into the area. The men cut down all of the trees in the area, and built these old mill houses by hand. These house are constructed very well to hold up throughout the test of time. All of these houses are constructed on small lots, and there is only about 15 foot of land separating each of them. This way they could get more houses on the high ground. Those old timers knew not to build houses on low lying ground, like they do today, because of 100 year flood plains.

Now that I have given you a short history on the area, let me move on to the house that I live in. I moved into this house about 9 years ago. The previous owner had been living in this house since about 1933, and he passed away here from natural causes. The next house that's only 15 feet next door a very nice old lady lived there when we moved in. I only really met her one time, at which time I hugged her thin frail body. She had a very big family, and she was a Sunday school teacher for 50 years. She passed away seven years ago in October. No one has ever stayed a night in her house since she passed away. I have only been in that house one time before her death, and I wouldn't step one foot back into that house if my life depended on it.

My daughter lives just 15 feet on the other side of that house. She has lived there for a little over four years. I knew the previous occupant very well. I would see him all of the time, and he was married and had small children and pet dogs. They all just simply vanished one day with all of their belongings. No one saw them move, a moving van, or has ever seen them again. This is very strange in my book, because he was born in this area, and has lived here all of his life. Before they lived in this house some sisters lived there. They had been in this house since 1938. They had the most beautiful flower garden in the back yard that anyone has ever seen. That garden which include roses was the envy of the neighborhood. One day a daughter of one the sisters was killed in a car accident, and no one went into that back yard ever again. That is except for me, and I cleared at least 30 to 40 years of neglect and growth out of that back yard. I even uncovered a long forgotten out house when I was cutting back there. I hauled somewhere around 30 truck loads of cut wood and brush from out of that back yard, and I'm still not finished. I have been in that house well over a thousand times. Fifteen feet on the other side of that house a elderly man lives. He's a very nice man who's well in his 80's, and he's lived there all of his life. His wife passed away many years ago, and he has been living there alone for a very long time. I've been in that house maybe about half a dozen times.

Now if you are all still with me here, let me continue on. I realize all of that information was rather long, but trust me, it was necessary for what I'm now about to tell you. My daughter just told me this story the other night, and it still hasn't completely all sunk into my brain yet. Where these houses are today, there was a plantation house sitting here a long time ago. We now know this, because my daughter's sister in law explained all of this to her. She has a very special gift which I didn't know about until my daughter told me this story. She can see things that other people can't, and this is the part where some of you may have a problem believing this story. But that's okay, because I know now that it's very real.

I'm not sure of the dates, but I'm going to start researching this entire story. According to my daughter's sister in law, a long time ago there was a plantation house here that burned down. A plantation house would have been considerably bigger than my daughter's house, and therefore it would have most likely covered the land on the adjacent properties. When it burned down, a lot of people died in this fire. Of those people some of them obviously decided to stay around in my daughter's house. It's a two story house with a very old hanging oak tree out in the front yard, which might somehow mean that was how the old plantation house lined up. Upstairs is where most of the activity took place. In her bedroom a servant woman, who was not very nice, would remove stuff out of the closet and set the stuff on her bed. My daughter would even try putting stuff in front of the door to keep it closed, but somehow the door always managed to open back up. (Lacking any other word, I'm using the word ghost.) This same ghost would come downstairs and created lighted orbs in front of the television, and one night even choked my daughter until her eyes went to the back of her head. Believe it or not, this isn't even the interesting part of this story.

I'd like to pause for a moment and point out how it was truly amazing back in those days just how many few fires actually occurred, especially since everyone cooked with wood stoves and had open fireplaces for heating. Imagine having real lighted candles on a Christmas tree! Of course those trees had been freshly cut and decorated on Christmas Eve. Occasionally someone would lose a tobacco barn from overheating, but in for those times fires were quite rare.

It's time to move on to the other occupants of this house, which explains why that old plantation house burned down. There apparently was an old nanny, who also wasn't a very nice person. She was very mean to the children, who she was entrusted to and suppose to be taking care of. There were three little boys, and this Nanny would put them as a form of punishment into a dumb-waiter, which is like a little elevator to move items from floor to floor. One day the little boys made a fire inside of the dumb-waiter to stay warm, and in return the entire house burned down to the ground killing everyone who was inside of it. My daughter's sister in law said that these three little boys would be upstairs playing at night with my grandson. My grandson is now five years old, and he's also autistic, which means he can't tell us what exactly is going on. My daughter said that she could hear the floor creaking at night, but couldn't put all of this together at the time. Another thing that we have all come to realize is that every night when my grandson would go to bed his room was clean and all of his toys were put up in the toy boxes. Every morning, and I mean every morning, every single toy was out of the toy boxes and spread across the entire room. We always thought that this was alot of work for just my grandson to do, but it's not alot of work if four little boys were playing with all of those toys, as it seems now that must of been the case.

Even after death these three little boys were still being treated mean by the Nanny. This went on for well over 100 years. She even somehow was mean to my little grandson. I picked up my little grandson from day care, and he would spend time with us in our house before I would walk him home. Sometimes he would be kicking and screaming when I took him home. According to my daughter's sister in law, that mean old nanny would be waiting down at the bottom of the staircase for him. The Staircase is right across from front door, so there the nanny would be every time we came in the door. I myself have never laid my eyes on this mean old nanny, but I promise you that my day will someday come. The nanny would always give me a wide berth and steer clear of me as I entered the house every time. My daughter's sister in law has also brought to out attention that the ghost of a white dig follows around behind "ME" when I come over. I'm almost positive that this is the spirit of my beloved dog who passed away over 10 years ago. My question here is - Is my dog's spirit making this nanny move out of the way? One other thing I need to pass on about this same stair case is that months ago my daughter's old pet hound dog fell somehow down the stairs and broke his neck. He died about 2 hours later. Thinking back to this moment - Is his fall down the stairs connected to these uninvited house guest, and not a freak accident?

My daughter's sister in law also walked through our house, and said that we didn't have any ghost present. However she did say that there was an extreme amount of negative energy in the house, which came from me. If anybody out there has any ideas on what I can do to reduce this negative energy, then I'm all open to any suggestions. This same negative energy may be the very reason that the mean old nanny stayed clear of me as well. As I said before my daughter's sister in law is a very special gifted person, and she helped each of these ghost pass onto the other side. This all happened about a year ago, even though I myself have just been told this story.

Today there is still one ghost left in my daughter's house. According to my daughter's sister in law, who spends a lot of the time at the house, It's the spirit of my grand children's grand pa. He passed away earlier this year, and he comes and plays with both my grandson, and 2 year old grand daughter. He also likes to disconnect some electrical equipment, and my daughter just leaves that particular equipment unplugged unless they are going to use it.

I'm still trying to let all of this sink in, and I'm working on finding everything that I can about that old plantation house and the people who lived inside of it. I believe every word of this story, and as I think back I can put a lot of the pieces together of this puzzle. I'm not going to debate this story with anyone out there, and trust me it's very true, and it's the most unbelievable story on all of the hub pages. One thing I will say before I let you all go is that I'm almost 50 years old. What that means is that I don't have eternity left here on this earth. The first thing I'm going to do when my magic day comes to walk up those old weathered wooden steps through the heavy mist and fog, to that great old thick wooden door is to find that mean old nanny, and deal with her my way!

Voted up and awesome. I am very much in tune with the world beyond and am fascinated by the paranormal. From what I understand is that when people die in a tragic way their spirits sometimes cannot find peace and will roam about without going to the world beyond. Sometimes they need help to be able to leave this world and some of them choose to stay. Now if grandpa is able to return and play with his grandchildren I think that's wonderful Let's us know for sure that there is much more to this life than we see and there definitely is a whole spirit world out there just beyond our sight and reach.It would be interesting if you could find out the history of the plantation house. Thanks for sharing this.

This is a very interesting hub. I have trouble understanding these things, because it says in the bible it tells us that when we die, we are only in the ground asleep. This is in the bible several times.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 (ESV)

(13) But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope.

(14) For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.

(15) For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.

I don't understand all of this. I have a daughter who has a high level of Autism, called Asperger's Syndrome. After my mother died ( my daughter was about 3 and still had trouble talking) she was sitting her her chair, and starting waving at the ceiling. Then said " Hi Nana" I looked up, nothing was there. I looked her and said "What are you doing" She said "Nana said she ok, and said bye bye" then waved again and went back to eating.

I read the bible, I love the bible, and I love God, and don't understand everything. But, this was true.

The title grabbed me, and the story lives up to it. If there is an historical group in your area, they might be able to shed light on the history of the plantation house that burned and even its owners.

Goody7, I know that things like this happen a lot, I have experienced a few first hand. For the negative energy in your home, buy a black votive candle. Set it as close to the middle of the worst room and light it whenever you are in there. When the candle has burned down, take it out to your back yard and bury it. The burning of the candle absorbs the negative energy and then you will bury the negativity when you bury the candle. Repeat for every room and continue until all negative energy is gone. Hope this helps.

Great story, captivating. Love the title and it sure is filling the shoes. Whether it's true or not - doesn't matter, the story is skillfully told and unique. You should write a book based on it, it'll be a hit, no doubt about it. If it is an everyday part of your life then I really feel for you, tough stuff then. Like xstatic said - look up the historical group or investigate local library and local council papers, you might find more links and will be able to 'deal' with it on a different level. Good luck!

goody7, I don't know why you'd think this story would be "unbelievable". But then I have a long history of encounters with nice ghosts AND mean ghosts and many varieties in between, so yours and your daughter's experiences seem "normal" for me. lol!

I hope when you're dome researching the history of the plantation house you'll share it with us in a hub!

Voted up and awesome! ;D

I totally believe in ghosts and have had my own experiences with them. We had a ghost in my childhood home and we even named her. I have so many ghost stories it's ridiculous. I'm glad you wrote about the past history of the houses and area to give us more clarity. Great hub. I'm glad to hear that your sister in-law cleared that mean nanny out of house. I feel so bad for your grandson to have dealt with her. I loved your last line about that angry old nanny.

I know for an absolute fact that ghosts do exist. I have saw them for at least 60 years and my Mom and Grandma saw them all their lives.

I really enjoyed this Hub Page. Really great. Thanks.

I loved this true life story. 50 year olds are the 30 year olds of yesterday - so yes you r still young. All my experience with dead loved ones has been through dreams, but I have heard too many ghost stories to doubt them.

This is a very unique story. You did a great job in telling it to us. I'm not one to belief in these things, however, I'm respectful of them. We don't know what is/isn't possible in our world.

Hi Goody7,

There is so much that we don't understand but that doesn't mean it isn't true.

If I came face to face with that mean nanny, I would ask her why she was so mean.

Voted up and awesome

Take care :)

I believe there is a spirit world as well. My maternal grandmother had a number of encounters with a ghost who tried to strangle her on these of occassions. She related this to us.

It is said that if one dies having a wish unfulfilled he/she becomes a ghost. There are so many other theories to it too.

Interesting story this.

Voted interesting.

This is very interesting. I have never had an encounter with a ghost, so I guess I am missing out. I wish you luck in your ghost endeavors and I agree with the above, check with the historical society on info about the plantation. They should be able to look up info in old newspapers and also see if there are any ghost stories reported at the time. Good luck!

Unbelievable it is. Your imagination and creativity can make you great scriptwriter goody7. I still have to find a scripture in the bible that tells us of any animal spirit. But Jesus tells us that our spirit lives even in bodily death as in Matthew 10:28, but 'be afraid of the One that can destroy both soul and body in hell.' Do we not see how evil spirits may still roam the earth, so with Satan with his fallen angels who have been made outcast from heaven? Do we not see why evil can be powerful on those who are lost and confused, and who rely on their human mind or intelligence and not on the greater power of our Lord Jesus who is in all of us and has power over all evil, yet, we refuse to believe in his power over evil?

Michele Travis may believe in God, so do many of us in this world. But do we believe in Jesus as 'One with the Father' for he said "I am One with the Father," as in John 14:10, http://bible.cc/john/14-10.htm, therefore, Jesus is God for he is the Word, and 'the Word was God,' as in John 1:1, and are not all these made manifest in the book of Revelation?

A very interesting and a thought provoking hub. Thanks for sharing this goody7 and thanks for the follow.

My Aunt Laura used to use sulfur to keep "spirits" away from her house, which was next door to my childhood home. As you can imagine, it was quite pungent over there. Everyone thought she was a bit senile. I am wondering if she knew a lot more than we realized. Now the house is gone and so is she. Guess we'll never know. Thanks for the hub. I'll be following.

interesting, and challenging, in the bible they are noted as angels, fallen angels that are imitating humans, weird thought, although I also know from the old testament that King Saul consulted with a spirtualist so he could speak to the prophet samuel, the whole thing gives me the heeby jeebies, even though I enjoy writing about it loool

You are funny, Goody,

But there may be some truth in what you say. Disembodied souls either cannot leave or will not leave without cause. They can be released, however. Go to the house and pray for them, or pray from home. Ask for their souls to be released and they will be if you have faith.

Now leave that old granny alone.
