A Brush with Spirits in Marbury, MD

As a child, I most definitely believed in ghosts and the paranormal. Probably mainly for the normal reasons that children believe in such stories, just as they believe in Santa and the Tooth Fairy. But there were other reasons why I believed in the paranormal...reasons that were justified by my experiences as a child and as an adolescent. Reasons that I have never once sat down to write about...until now.

My first experience occurred when I was eleven years old...when my mother married a new husband and we moved into his almost-hundred-year-old, three-story brick house in Marbury, Maryland. Before I get into the details of my experience, I have to describe to you the creepy, small town of Marbury. Marbury is a town that literally makes up a total of about 4 streets...not very large, to say the least. The town does possess one post office and one gas station...but that is about it. When you first drive into Marbury, an overwhelming feeling of loneliness and dismay creeps into your mind...almost immediately, especially after you drive under the winding, old trees overhead of the roads and there is an old chimney standing erect and by itself to your left...with no house attached to it. Apparently the house had burned down years and years before leaving only the brick chimney...and nothing was down to rebuild the home or use the land afterwards. And to add to this weird scenery, I almost always remember it being rainy or cloudy and overcast during our residency in Marbury. There is a large area of forest behind the homes in Marbury, and if you follow a pathway behind that house into the oak and maple tree forest...you will come to a beautiful and eerily quiet creek. Though it is beautiful, it still feels the same as the whole town of Marbury...cold and discomforting...though I am still not sure as to why the town feels this way. So now I will describe the hundred-year-old creepy brick home...complete with creepy cellar. The house was over a hundred years old when my mother, my brother and I moved into it. You walk into the front door and there is a staircase directly in front that goes up to the second floor. You can go to the left, where the living room was located or to the right, where there is a dining room and further to the right...the study. Once you are in the dining room, you can take a left and the kitchen is situated to the back of the house...still holding it's original kitchen cabinets and farm-style, deep white sink. Even further to the back of the house, connected to the kitchen is the stairwell to the lowest level...the cellar (or basement...whichever term you prefer). If you take the stairs up to the top level, you will see a room to the left and also a room directly to your right. Take a right and travel down the hallway, still beside the stairwell and there is the master bedroom to the left and fourth bedroom to the right. That fourth bedroom was mine...and the bathroom was between those two rooms. The bedroom straight across from my room was my mother and new stepfather's room. My brother was unfortunate and was stuck on the opposite end of the house...in one of the back rooms on the upper level. He was stuck in the room opposite from the bedroom where I felt the most uncomfortable and had one of my many scary experiences.

After living in this house for about two years, my main bump-ins with spirits or energies would occur in the middle of the day and in the middle of the night. They were small and not terrifying occurrences...mainly just discomforting and gave me a creepy feeling that someone was watching me. I never felt fully comfortable and at ease in this house...it never felt like a home to me. The doors to the upstairs bedrooms would creak open and shut, without anyone being on that level...this would especially happen when I was reading or watching television in my bedroom. The cellar of the house was multi-functional...used for storage and also as a laundry area. By this time I was expected to do my own loads of laundry, so I had to brave the dark and cold basement on my own...usually once a week. I remember running down the stairs to get to the laundry area of the basement...I felt like if I did not leave the washer's side maybe nothing would happen to me. Then after I had slammed my laundry into the washer, I would jet back up the cellar stairs and fly into the kitchen. I absolutely loathed having to ever go into that cellar...for any reason. Nothing in particular happened in the cellar...just that same feeling of someone watching me or that someone was going to grab me.

All of these occurrences were nothing in comparison to what happened in that house when I had turned thirteen. I had two best friends, who were sisters...we will call them Jennifer & Theresa for privacy purposes. Both girls were beautiful, curious and rebellious and I wanted to be just like them. One day, while my two friends were visiting me in my house, Jennifer made mention that she had recently played a ouija board with one of her other friends and found it to be quite exciting. We decided to make our own ouija board, using a piece of cardboard for the textboard, a magic marker to write the letters, numbers and YES and NO, and a little shot glass as the spectacle (is that what you call that triangular thing that moves over the letters?) To my dismay, the ouija board experience turned out to be exciting...and also terrifying. We used it about four times that day and each time we tried to communicate with a spirit...the same spirit would talk to us. The spirit called itself "Z". We thought that if we said goodbye to it and cleared out the board that we could get Z to go away...and maybe pull a nicer spirit. However, Z kept returning to talk to us. He would never answers our questions...only ask questions in response. The last time we used our makeshift ouija board, it was the following day. By this point we all really thought that we could use it again and that it was no big deal to play with this board. I have to be honest and say that I felt pretty reluctant and found myself trying to discourage the other girls from playing with it again. They decided to use the board one last time, and guess who showed up to talk to us? You guessed it...our scary pal Z! The three of us were so freaked out by the experience that we ended up trashing the board and all of the items we used to make it. But this was not the end of the story...oh, no.

Following our joust with the ouija board and the unsettled spirit named Z, I started experiencing more and more paranormal presences. Doors were now opening and slamming louder than ever before, and my little brother became quite scared of the entire house. On one particular day, my mother, two friends and I were sitting in the dining room chatting about random things when we heard a loud POP! It sounded like a bomb had been shot inside of the house. We looked everywhere to try to find what made the noise and finally realized that the candy jar that was sitting on the table in front of all of us was cracked and shattered...from the bottom up! Now I am sure someone can offer me a logical explanation for this...but at that time, add this experience to everything that I was going through and it was just flat-out frightening. A few months later, my mother, brother, and I ended up moving out of the house...not particularly due to my paranormal experiences but for other personal reasons of my mother's. Though I was disappointed to have to leave this beautiful old home, I was very content to know that the next place we lived might not contain the same trapped spirits or energies such as this place. No one ever confirmed that anyone had ever died in that house, but I would almost guarantee that it did happen. My grandmother told me years later that she believed the man that lived in the house years before us was into some sort of weird cult...

Books on Ghosts in Maryland

Little Boy Blue in Mechanicsville, MD

After moving out of Marbury, Maryland, my mother and I moved into our new home in Mechanicsville, Maryland.  This home was located right on the main road in town and was originally built in the nineteen forties.  My stepfather's grandparents had built and resided within that home from the forties until they both passed away (I believe sometime in the eighties or nineties but I am not positive).  The house's exterior was painted a sky blue shade and the house consisted of two levels, plus a basement that had to be entered from the outside and back of the house.  There are a few large trees that envelope the house, but it is really located in the middle of a field.  The interior showed signs of age but was endearing, nonetheless.  There were three bedrooms on the second level and one bedroom on the first level...along with the kitchen, living room, one bathroom and a study.  The vibe that this home encompassed felt a lot more comforting and welcoming to me, in comparison to my previous home in Marbury.  The first night I slept in my bedroom on the first level (everyone else slept on the second level), I heard sounds of toys coming from the living room area.  I had my bedroom door shut, but I clearly heard a sound like that of a bell on a child's bicycle ring out from behind my bedroom door.  It startled me, but it did not frighten me too much because I was able to fall back asleep almost immediately after I heard it.  In the months to follow, I would continue to hear random noises like that of toys coming from the living room but they were almost enchanting in some strange way.  I wondered who was making those noises and why.

In addition to the random toy-sounds at night, my sister and I were chatting in the living room one sunny day when a horse figurine that was sitting on a shelf on the wall opposite of us seemed to just fly right off of the shelf and hit the floor at our feet!  The strange thing was that no doors had been slammed and nothing had hit that wall to make the figurine fall off of the shelf...so we were baffled and our skin goosepimpled up a bit in light of this situation.  The flying kamikaze horse figurine flew off the shelf two more times on separate occasions after the first incident...both times without logical reason.  Another weird noise that my mother and I heard while sitting in my bedroom downstairs, was a loud BANG in her bedroom upstairs.  It literally sounded as if someone was standing on her bed and decided to jump off of it.  We darted up the steps to see if something had fallen but each time...nothing out of the ordinary.  We started the joke that there was a little boy ghost that lived in the house and that he liked to jump on our beds. 

There was also a strange smell that sporadically enveloped my bedroom and the first level of the house.  It was not a foul smell but a very sweet scent...like maple syrup on pancakes.  My mother and I searched and searched each time to discover where the scent was coming from but could never find anything that smelled exactly like the maple syrup aroma.  We checked to see if there were candles or perfumes or some type of food in the vacinity of the smell...but nothing of the sort would turn up.  I secretly speculated that the little boy's favorite food was pancakes and syrup.  Living in this house, we almost grew fond of the fact that there was a little boy residing along with us...however, we did feel a bit sad for him...like he was looking or waiting for his mother.  If you look at the picture below, and zoom in a bit, you will notice that there is a red circle that I have drawn on it myself.  Within the red circle is the image of what my mother and I believe is the little boy spirit.  It seems as though he is peering out of the window, and you can just make out the outline of his ear and collar, as well as his hair.  The grayish spectre in the front of me...well, we have no clue what that is.  People that I show this picture to theorize that it is smoke...but my parents did not smoke in the house nor would they have around me at that time, as I was sick on Christmas that year.  Whatever the theory is, the picture is real and I have never seen an effect such as this in any other picture...although, I would love to hear your theories on the matter!

After these many occurrences within our house, my stepfather eventually told us that his great uncle had passed away from pneumonia while residing in the house.  And supposedly his great uncle was just a little boy when he suffered this illness and fatality.  He also told us that his grandmother became senile and lived in the house by herself for awhile after his grandfather had passed.  She used to tell her relatives that "Little Boy Blue" would visit her bedside to keep her company from time to time and that she would hear him playing in the house on random occasions.  She also told a tale about a man named "Mr. Brown" who would open and slam the second level bedroom doors.  Whether her belief in "Little Boy Blue" has any connection to her son, I do not know...and no one will ever know, except her.

Muldania - Wow! The experience with the dog is SUPER scary. I would've peed my pants and been so upset for the puppy. Thanks for sharing...whether it's ghosts or not, these things happen, and they are definitely paranormal to some degree.


Muldania 4 years ago

kittythedreamer, that is more than likely, as I have mentioned my ghost story many times, as it is the only experience I have had. It would be good if it were to happen again, as it would confirm my experience.

AdalaineFrost, I can recognise your description of the dog barking at a spot on the wall. This used to happen with my nan's dog at her home. One time, he was barking at something in the garden, when the whole family then saw him rise into the air, and then fly, as if thrown across the yard into the door of an outhouse. He was terrified after this.

AdalaineFrost - Love the name! You're right, I remember that happening. I guess that's why you don't hear the boy jumping off of the bed anymore!

gryphin - Thanks so much! Glad you liked it.

Muldania - I think you and I have had a discussion about your experience in one of the forums at one point. I found it to be a fascinating story! Thanks for sharing again. I believe that Mrs. Day wasn't necessarily an intelligent ghost, but that maybe you witnessed a residual haunting...one that plays out events of the past. Could that be possible?

The house in your picture looks very like the Amityville house. I have had an experience in my present home of seeing the elderly woman who lived here before me. Eight years ago, at 6am, I went downstairs and sat on the sofa. I then looked towards the far end of the room and saw an elderly woman, who was standing next to the wall and looking at a painting which was hanging there. I said - "Who the hell are you?" She then looked at me and replied "I am Mrs. Day." She then looked back to the painting and somehow went into it. I made a note of what she was wearing, which included a quilted floral dressing gown, which neighbours later confirmed that she had owned. I have not seen or heard her before or since, and as it has been eight years, I am now not convinced that I did see her, even though it was so real at the time. The odd thing was that I was not afraid at all, and it seemed quite natural that she should have been there.

I too have had many experiences with the paranormal. In fact I am Kittys Mom. What she forgot was how our little dauschund "Dit Dot" would stop and stare & bark at random places in the air or on a wall..like he was watching something or someone. I felt sorry for Lil Boy Blue so a "white witch" friend and I did a cleansing of the home and sent lil Boy Blue home to his mother.

Avi - The house that I lived in is directly off of Marbury Run Road, right behind Lackey High School. And there is still a brick house standing there.

Thanks for reading and sharing.


Avi 5 years ago

I have no idea where you lived in Marbury, but I actually have lived in the town my whole life. The only really weird building is Dr. Bicknell's house as far as I know, and it's not brick. There's some story about the Doctor himself I don't remember, but supposedly the people who lived there when my parents moved in had a son who committed suicide, so they moved out. Then the people who lived there next, the wife died when the plane hit the pentagon on September 11th.

Maybe you lived on the other side or something. We don't get out much.

Growing up in Southern Maryland, I've heard so many ghost stories such as yours above!

Have you heard of the one about the blue dog? Go to the Blue Dog Saloon down in Port Tobacco and ask about it. It's one of my favorites.

I definitely did not no know about Chopticon High School though, that was really interesting.

JamaGenee 5 years ago from Central Oklahoma

Yes, Kitty, you definitely have to be open-minded to sense and/or experience the presence of spirits! My first clue that I'm one of those people was at age 15 when a recently deceased friend appeared to me. It's been an interesting ride ever since. Lived in a succession of haunted residences and got so used to having at least one ghost around that when I moved into a place that *wasn't* haunted, I felt I should get a discount on the rent!

Having said that, Fullerman5000 is far braver than I. No amount of money could make me spend a night at the Myrtles. No way. Not gonna happen. That place is wayyyy too spooky even for me! ;D

Fullerman5000 - Awesome, I look forward to it!

Chatkath - Thanks so much! It's an older one, probably written over 4 months ago. One of the first hubs I've written! I've considered writing an ebook about my experiences but there isn't enough to fill an entire book...yet! :)

Funny thing is, I've never been to Louisiana...though I've been to every Southern state in the whole country! I've always wanted to go to New Orleans though, specifically because of the paranormal activity and legends there. Please tell me when you go and if you go on a haunted tour or not. I'd love to hear your experiences with the paranormal. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, fullerman5000! :)

You should visit New Orleans, Louisiana. I have been to a couple of the haunted places there. Its only an hour away, and i am planning on taking their famous ghost tours. After all, it is one of the most haunted cities. Living in Louisiana, we have many places that are considered haunted. Great job on the hub. I have had an expierence myself. It really does make you wonder what happens after life.


Seeker7 profile image

Seeker7 5 years ago from Fife, Scotland

Hi Kitty, I must have missed this hub the last time I visited your profile??? This is awesome!

Really frightening stuff especially the 'Z' character. I think when spooks do stuff like this then they are up to no good at all and you were right to get rid of the board. And although frightening at least it didn't go any further than what you experienced. I think that you probably have psychic ability that draws experiences. Mediums/psychics tend to act as amplifiers for paranormal experiences and spirits are also drawn to your aura.

There are some places that just have a sad/depressing air about them whether small or large. I think sometimes it depends on a places history - if a lot of bad things have happened - then this energy tends to linger and people pick up on this and just assume it is the look of the place. Also where the land has been disturbed intentionally and not for any good reasons, I do believe in the spirits of place that can show their displeasure with negative energies. So I think it is possible with the little place you mention called Marbury, that you were picking up some of this negative energy?

The photos are great. It is definitely not smoke, but it does look like ecto-mist - a substance created by a spirit, some believe they produce this when trying to materialise.

The wee boy is so sad. It really makes me want to cry when I think of young spirits like this who may be trapped just waiting for someone to come and help them. Although I am comforted by the fact that eventually all trapped spirits do manage to move on with or without help, but only if they are willing to go. Poor wee soul, hope he finds peace.

This was an awesome hub and a wonderful read! Voted up + bookmarked - have also sent this on to one of my sisters who loves this kind of article. Many thanks, Seeker7.

Ohh, wow...tell me about the ouija board experience, if you don't mind.

Good reading on the cellar...I always hated that place, felt as if there was a looming darkness or something wicked growing beneath that house. Interesting that you pick up on female spirits on the second floor...I can't ever really put a gender on spirits that I feel or come in contact with...at least not normally. My grandmother can sense energies and spirits and always said that some sort of weird occult stuff occurred in that house in Marbury. She swore it was "freemasonry" but I think her Christian religion sort of clouds the truth...as I don't know if the freemasons are actually evil or not...I don't know enough about that group to say!

Did you live in a house like the one I lived in in Marbury? I wonder why you were talking about a house that was so similar to this one? Explain more! I'm dying to know!

I only ever sensed one child's spirit in the second house...a little boy...between three and four. The scent, no it did not smell like perfume, it smelled like maple syrup and pancakes. Very comforting but strange at the same time. I'm sure there is more than just the little boy there...other strange and dark things have happened, though they're harder to explain here. Maybe a deceptive spirit? Or maybe it's just a collection of negative energy?

Okay I read the second half. It is now 11:19. I also passed along the word to another HUbber about a house I had described to them just a few days ago. The house in your picture I described to a t... Weird but anyway... In your second house was there a little girl too? There are 2 children ghosts that are trouble makers. Now about the pancakes it did not smell like perfume? HMMM what else did you find out about the house? There is more than just a little boy there.

kitty: Right up my alley... The house I just described over the weekend to another hubber which I now have to contact to have them check out your hub. My desription to the T... I actually went back and looked at the photo several times. Now the ouija board which I love I too had a bad experience as a matter of fact October 4, 5, and 6 of 1986 and YES we also made our own board.... I know all too well what you went through. That Marbury House.. Pathway look at the bushes. Not at night!! Cellar? Bad things happened there and the second floor all women spirits okay going back to finish read the rest of your hub. I will vote then close come back to comment on the rest... 11:06 PM

hi, jeannieinabottle! whereabouts in maryland? yes, ma'am...maryland is one of the oldest states...one of the first in the 13 colonies! think about point lookout, st. mary's city, and so many other creepy and historical spots in maryland that are probably crawling with paranormal activity! do your research on the history of maryland and you'll find many bloody battles and goings-on dating back hundreds of years. think also of the different native american tribes that were ran out of the area...i'm sure many were killed off..so we can assume that possibly some of their energy or spirits were left behind? i think that paranormal activity can occur anywhere in the world, but i have always found maryland to be high in phenomenon such as ghosts and strange occurrences. now i live in florida and there are places all over that i'm finding have just as much of a deep historical past with their own paranormal occurrences! thanks for stopping by and id love to hear some of your paranormal experiences in maryland! :)

hi, amy...thanks so much for your wonderful comment and encouragement. i think that it is a good idea for those who have had paranormal experiences to be open about them and share them with others, too!

misscoles - maryland is an eerie state...i lived there for eighteen years! point lookout, st. mary's city, baltimore and many other places have many ghost stories to be told! i'll have to check out your newest hubs!

Alastar packer - yes, ouijas are very scary indeed and i discourage people from using them. i do believe women have sensitivity abilities and also intuition that comes into play in paranormal experiences. thanks for stopping by!

HI kittythedreamer,if I may say so , women seem to be gifted when it comes to sensing things, whether it's a flesh and blood person or otherwise. Ouijas, although some like to think thats all sub-conscious can I believe summon other entities, not always good.Thanks for sharing your story.

this article is fantastic! I have also had experiences with the paranormal. I've lived in Maryland all my life, a pretty eerie state, and It's fascinating to read from other authors who believe in the paranormal as well.

Thank you so very much for sharing this, it is very good to get the word out more about these experiences, to stop the silly fears and stigma's around them. You are very brave to do this, and I so admire you for doing it!! Again thank you. I am writing a small creative story, based on my own experiences, I too am a believer and an empath, but I try too keep this away from me, always. I love your hubpages and hope to see more. A.B.

Wow this was a most interesting story. I enjoyed it. I do believe when we are young we have and ability to see or feel what others have or can not. Yes I DO BELIEVE IN SPIRITS. Spirits are all around us. My late husband passed away. Through the years I would often see images of him in my boys room. Are his radio would play at certain times. He was a good man. He was a good spirit. I feel like he was our guardian angel. He doesn't visit anymore. My boys are older now and I am engaged to be married again. I believe he knows now, that were going to be alright. Have a Happy New Year.

Hi, this is fascinating, it was funny really because when I realised what your hub was about, I got myself comfortable, with a cup of tea and settled in to read it! ha ha great stuff! seriously though, I do believe that when we are young, we have some sort of energy around us and whether it is ghosts or our own telekinesis strange things do happen. sometimes it is our own energy that makes this happen, not as interesting as a ghost but just as fascinating, loved it, voted up cheers nell
