Someone should've helped Mrs.Rogers though, especially because she tried to help Shamrock6.

Anyway, thanks for sharing! I read your post in another topic and it got me curious and here it is
Good that you could leave that quickly.

Maybe I was hosting a demonic house party and nobody bothered to tell me about it?

All spirits do it. Something about standing at the door and knocking?

Today is a door bell.

Or a prank, like little kids do.

Maybe they didn't like soldiers or cops…

Whatever, you're out.

If it doesn't follow you, all the better. If it does start up again, when your hear the door bell or any knocking you say, "You can't come in, go away".

when we killed our lease we explained why to the landlord. He contacted the previous tenants who confirmed parts of our story happening to them also. he said something about having a priest come to the house, but I have no idea if he ever did it.

yea, we left quick. and left a lot of money behind too unfortunately!

Yes, I hate to see trapped spirits, but if they were hanging around to protect the family, I hope they feel free to move on now that they are gone.
The angels make a "sweep" to pick up all the earthbound spirits every few years, so if they are still around, they'll find their way eventually.

That's good to know! It's important to get rid of the dark spirit, just in case it was holding the others hostage. But, something tells me they are free to leave now that they aren't needed to protect your family.

Scary stuff. It reminds me of a lot of places I've been in. The best thing you could have done was to leave.

I'm always fascinated with people's experiences of ghostly encounters. There are way too many credible witnesses for me to deny that they exist. I too am glad that you got out since there was also an evil presence in that house.

Ghost type stuff and UFOs are what got me here. Finally decided to share my story, after coming across a similar one recently. This is probably one of the few realms where I felt even a little comfortable sharing

Thanks for reading!

It was indeed chilling. My page break coincided nicely with the need to take a break for a couple minutes. Still gives me the heebie jeebies, years later and a couple states away.

My family (two kids still in diapers, ex wife, and me) moved in to an older house in the middle of town. Very nice single family home. Big yard, two car garage, big porches/patios, etc. Very stately. We were renting, and we allowed the people who were living there before us to leave some of their stuff in the garage as they moved into their new house. Shortly after moving in, we were watching TV one evening when the doorbell rang late in the evening. I went and opened the door and nobody was there. Assuming it was the wind or something, closed the door and went back to the TV with just a "huh...that was weird" thought. Over the next several days, the doorbell rang once or twice an evening and we started getting annoyed with it. The prior renters stopped by and we asked them about it. They said the homeowner had sent an electrician out to the house who found nothing wrong with the doorbell, so they chalked it up to "Mrs. Rogers." We asked who that was, and they explained that Mr. and Mrs. Rogers were the original owners of the house, had lived there for decades, and that both had passed away (peacefully) in the house about 15 years apart. They asked if anything had happened with the garage door yet, to which we replied no.

I have a feeling this was the "evil" entity trying to frighten you. Evil spirits feed on fear. If not, then it was one of the Rogers' trying to get your attention to let you know they were there.


At the time I was working evenings, so I would get home very late/very early and sleep during the morning hours. The doorbell ringing continued, and within a week or so I was awoken to the sound of the garage door opening. I was highly confused, as it was far too early for my ex to be getting home, so I got up and went to see what the deal was. I entered the garage via a door in the house, and saw the door wide open with nobody around. Sigh, guess Mrs. Rogers is branching out again or something.

So, the spirit couldn't get enough fear out of you by ringing the doorbell, so he took it "up a notch".



My father in law moved in with us due to some pretty severe health issues. He brought oxygen tanks and those air machines that plug into the wall. He ended up taking a hard turn for the worse, and passed away in the house. In the 24-48 hours leading up to him passing away, he continually talked about seeing somebody sitting in his recliner (nobody was), and that it was a "little old lady" who was "just watching me (him)." He talked about seeing black figures moving around his room, to include sitting on his bed, in the chair, going in and out of his bathroom (attached to his room), etc.

The old woman could have been there to watch over him during his passing, to keep the evil one away from him. All the others he saw were probably family members coming to welcome him to the other side. I've heard of other people near death speak of seeing figures in the room with them.



A few days after we got done with all the funeral stuff, my oldest child started waking up in the middle of the night screaming bloody murder. I, or my ex, would go in and see what the problem was, and he would be sitting up in bed with his little back pressed tight to the wall, his blanket pulled up to his face, screaming away. Meanwhile, my youngest was sound asleep in his bed not 5 feet away in the same room. He wasn't old enough to really articulate what the problem was, but it was pretty plain that he was scared pretty bad so my ex started letting him sleep with her/us. That seemed to work for a few nights, but then he started waking up screaming again and was inconsolable for the better part of an hour to two hours, each time. All through it, my youngest never had any issues.

I have a feeling this was your father-in-law, especially since Mr. and Mrs. Rogers hadn't frightened the children by coming around them at night. He probably was just checking in on them.
I've heard/read that spirits don't leave the earth plane for awhile after death, especially if they feel their family needs them. If he became aware of the evil spirit, he was staying to protect your family and the children.
Your son that saw him, or whatever it was, must be more sensitive to the spirit world, or else, your youngest is just a very sound sleeper. LOL



One day I had come home after working a double shift and nodded off on the couch (please, no parenting comments; I already know I screwed up there). I was awoken by the doorbell being rung over and over and over again, one "ding-dong" right after the other. I jumped up and saw that the front door was open. Tore through the house to find my oldest (youngest was asleep) and couldn't find him, so I ran outside. There he was at the bottom of the driveway, dragging his little blanket along as he walked. I got him back inside and thanked "Mrs. Rogers" for waking me up.

This definitely wasn't the evil spirit; it was one of the "good guys".




A few nights later I received a series of texts from my ex, describing an incident at the house: she had been in the kitchen with the oldest who was playing on the floor. They heard a knocking coming from my father in laws room. My kid stood up and went into the hallway and the knocking stopped. He stared at the door to FIL's room and made the little kid approximation noise for "grandpa?" The knocking noises continued for the next few nights, along with some other things I will get into in my next post.

Yep, that was him letting you know he was still with you.


I'll continue on the next page...

Part Two...




A few nights later, I was off and we were again all watching TV. By this point, we were only going to the lower level of the house to do laundry. Nobody was sleeping down there, despite that being where all the bedrooms were except for FIL's and the guest room. We were sleeping on the couch mostly, with the kids in the guest room. While sitting on the couch watching TV, we heard a loud thud from the kitchen. At first I just chalked it up to the cat knocking something off the counter, but I realized the cat was asleep on a floor vent (it was winter at this point) so I got up and went to the kitchen. A small box of FIL's belongings (very small box, about the size you'd need to ship a pair of Christmas ornaments) had been on a computer desk belonging to FIL. That box was now in the middle of the floor in the kitchen. As close to dead middle as possible, which was about 6 feet away from the desk. I looked at the computer, which had been "asleep" for a few weeks without ever being used by now, and it was awake, with wordpad open and a string of random gibberish characters. Again I chalked it up to the cat, because I didn't know for sure how long the cat had been on the vent, but I couldn't explain the box.

Well, that definitely was him. He was using something of his to let you know it was him, and the computer gibberish was him manipulating the electronic device to get a message to you. Too bad he was having a problem with spelling from the other side. It takes a "newly departed" spirit time to "learn the ropes" over there, so I've heard. Maybe there was something in the box he wanted to bring to your attention?




My kid's night terrors continued more nights than they didn't. There was one evening that at about the same time my ex was going in to gather the kid up to sleep with us, the doorbell started ringing again. This time it was accompanied by the occasional loud "knock-knock" on the front door. I was sufficiently freaked out at the timing that I grabbed my gun (for those reading this that aren't aware, I am a police officer) and threw open the door pretty violently. The storm door was wide open and I stuck my head outside. I swore then (and still do) that I could hear somebody running through the snow around the side of the house, so I yelled to the ex that I was "gonna get this effer" and that if she heard me yelling, to call 911 and get me some help. I took off around the side of the house, yelling at whomever I was chasing to stop. I could see what appeared to be footprints and followed them around the side of the house into the back yard. I never did catch up to anybody, but our back yard was wide open and whomever/whatever it was, I should've been able to see them unless they were an Olympic track star. I backtracked to the front of the house, and confirmed that there was at least a smattering of what appeared to be footprints.

This wasn't the "good guys".
Sounds like there is another prankster ghost in the neighborhood along with the others.
Just be happy it wasn't three knocks. Three knocks, or three scratches on the body represent a demon, but any evil spirit can invade our (or a child's) dreams to scare the living daylights out of us so they can instill fear to feed on.



A couple of weeks later, I was off again. In the intervening days, my ex had been awoken by the knocks, the alarm going off on the air machine, which by this point had been unplugged and turned off for a month, the garage door, the doorbell, all of it continuing unabated. This particular evening, we were watching TV again when my youngest began screaming from his room. We tried to let him go back to sleep on his own, but after about ten minutes or so there was a very loud, very persistent banging coming from the bedroom they were sleeping (or not sleeping) in. It sounded like somebody was trying to beat their way through the door. I got up and went to the room, my ex coming with but a few feet behind. When my hand contacted the door knob, the banging immediately ceased but the screaming continued. I tried to open the door, but it seemed to be a little stuck so I had to push it open forcefully. When I opened the door, I froze in the doorway. I could feel, and my ex could see, all the hair on my neck stand up straight. All the hair on my arms stood up. I saw that my youngest was sleeping peacefully in his bed. My oldest was in a corner with his blanket over his head. My oldest was about 12 feet away from the door. In my opinion, it would've been physically impossible for him to beat on the door as hard as it was being beaten, and then make it back across the room to that corner in the time it took me to get the door open. We snatched the kids up and everybody slept in the living room.

Wow! This was a really bad spirit!! They visit the young because they are the most vulnerable and will provide more fear than adults that have been brainwashed that they (ghosts/demons) don't exist. And, usually, children are still sensitive to the spirit world more so than adults.



My ex had a friend over who claimed to be "sensitive." We hadn't told her anything about what was going on. As she was leaving, she blurted out that our house was inhabited by at least three entities. Mrs. Rogers, the FIL, and "something else." She described the "something else" as something patently evil and dark, and that the FIL and Mrs. Rogers were still there to try and protect us.

We moved out within two weeks.

Yes, I agree with her, but I think you had another one outside that liked to ring doorbells and run away.
The one opening the garage door could have been Mr. Rogers, or it could have been the prankster... hard call on that one.

As I said before in my earlier post, I'm so happy you moved!! Things would only have gotten worse, and your poor kids would have had to live through even worse traumatic experiences.

Great story. Sorry you had to experience that, but now you are a believer... so I'm happy about that.

Your sentiments mirror our own. We felt that FIL and Mrs. Rogers and whomever else were hanging out to protect us from whatever the evil entity was. In retrospect I think there was a fight coming in that house had we stayed any longer, which makes me all the more happy that we left when we did.

The one thing that has stuck with me is the banging on the door from that final event. My ex believed that it was her father or Mrs. Rogers banging on the door to get us to come get the door. I believed (and still do) that it was the evil entity manifesting itself and terrorizing my little guy. The banging was without a doubt some of the most violent I've ever heard. It was so loud that it was as if it was in the same room with us and not across the house. It sounded like a full grown man hitting and kicking the door with all their might, in a rage. The door sticking briefly felt like it was trying to keep me out. I didn't have to kick the door in or anything, but I had to put some solid effort into getting it open. I know the evil entity was present, given my physical reaction when I got the door open, but I've just never been able to figure out who was doing the banging.

Thanks for reading and commenting

Wow!

What an experience!

Sounds like you did the right thing in moving. Things like that can get really scary, especially for children.
I've lived in a couple of haunted places over the years, and although I don't creep out easy, and tend to get annoyed at things popping open, ( I would of really been annoyed with the doorbell and disconnected it) for the kids sake I would of moved as well.

Thank you for sharing your experience, it is well written, and I totally believe you.

Great story. Thanks for posting. I wouldn't be surprised if I have some kind of protecting spirit following me around. I once met someone who I was starting to get closer to mention that she had a poltergeist in her place. Shortly after she mentioned it to me, it was like it got kicked out. She said things had been getting moved in her house, cabinets getting opened up, things moved around and that this had been going on for at least a couple of years. Suddenly after telling me about it, it all stopped. She felt relieved. Even a year or two later, she said there was no sign of any activity. She moved to another place anyway not liking the past memories. I've heard that there is a spirit war going on that most humans are not aware of. Maybe the op had some rookie foot solders in the war standing guard to protect him and his family. It would be a nice thought to think past loved ones can come back in spirit to protect you in a time of need from other unseen evil spirits.

I've often thought that loved ones have some ability to protect us from "the other side." When I was a young buck in the military on my first deployment, I had several dreams in which my paternal grandmother appeared. She had passed away when I was in my early teens, but we had been about as close as any grandson/grandmother could be at the time of her death. There was never any "message" or anything. Sometimes all I experienced was us watching TV together or eating together (memories I was fond of) and others we were at a park or something similar in what would've been "present day" time. Hardly any conversation ever took place, but I felt like she was perhaps letting me know that she was still with me in some manner.
