Wicked! This one is hard to believe, but when I was 2 or 3, my family lived in a cottage in Shreveport on my grandma's land and I can still remember, like it was yesterday, that when my mom would lay me down in my baby bed, I would see a small child in the upper corner of the room that would sit on the light fixture against the wall. He would always make me laugh, and then he'd put his finger over his mouth and say "Shhh." I would stop laughing and my mom would come in there to see why I wasn't napping. That would have been either 1981 or 1982. Over the Summer, this year, I was talking about while I was visiting and she said she remembered me being noisy but then quiet before she got within sight.
She was a bit skeptical of what I was saying, considering my age, until I told her what the child looked like. She showed me a picture of my grandpa's 4 year old brother and that's exactly what this child looked like. My grandpa's brother died of polio in the 1920's when he was 4 years old. That one sent chills down the spines of everyone listening.
Edit: I described the 4 year old brother before she showed me his picture.

So sorry to be a nuisance, but I must ask, just what it is you were driving at in that post.
It is somewhat late, and my capacity for certain nuances and aspects of communications protocol has quite escaped me for the time being.
