The hub pages most unbelievable story - Chapter two
It's now been over two months since I first shared this unbelievable story with all of you here at the Hub Pages, and I wanted to give you an update on what new information has come to light. I wanted to thank you all for the great comments which you've made so far, and to tell you all that I most certainly do believe in ghost. I'd also like to add that I still think this title is a good fit with the hub pages, which is the reason why I chose it in the first place.
I've since done some research, and in keeping with the policy of not naming any names, I'll tell you what I've discovered so far. Most of what I've learned is either from my daughter's sister in law or from over the Internet. The library, court house, registrar of deeds, and the tax office, which I've all visited in person haven't been all that much help as of yet.
The ghost or spirit who was responsible for removing items from the closet was a Confederate war widow, with a war pension. All of her information is now public record in the state archives. She applied for the widow's claim for pension act of March 11th, 1885. Her husband lost his life in consequence of a wound received in battle in 1864. His place of death was listed as the county courthouse, which was a common practice used back during the war when they were unsure of the exact time and place where the soldier's life terminated. Her application was correct under the act, and she met all of the qualifications for a widow's war pension. She was a bonafide resident of the state and county, she did not own either in her own right or in the right of her late husband property of an assessed value of five hundred dollars, she was not in the receipt of a salary or fees arising from any office in the County, State or Nation, to the amount of $300 annually, and finally she had never remarried. She passed away over 117 years ago on April 25th 1895. I am starting to believe that she was not connected to the other occupants of the house in any way, but I may be wrong.
I don't as of yet have any more information about the plantation house itself, but I am determined to find out all that I can. My daughter says that you never know what's going to be turned on in the house when you walk down stairs. It could be a toy, lights, an electronic device, anything. To be perfectly honest with you, it's even creepy just writing this, and everything makes me jump.
There has been one new additional spiritual visitor to the house that we know about. I'm certainly not going to use any names here, and I may have even known or seen this young man personally. There was an extremely dark presence felt though out the entire house by everyone, so my daughter's sister in law was called back onto the scene. She discovered a young fifteen year old boy who refused to talk with her in anyway what so ever. He wasn't the least bit cooperative with her, but she was however successful in helping him cross over to the other side. She told us all that this fifteen year old boy committed suicide back in 2005.
I'm starting to believe that the land here where the plantation house once existed is causing all of this ghostly activity. Also the other night when I went to visit my grand daughter for the 700th straight day since she was born, I saw my daughter's sister-in-law over at the house. After I left she softly told my daughter that the ghost of the white dog was still following behind me. My beloved dog Dewey passed away over 10 years ago, and he was white. It's really comforting to me to know he's always by my side. He also might be the very reason the mean old nanny backed away from me every time that I approached the stairway. As I discover more about this house, I'll let you all know and give you all another update.
