While I've never encountered any of these things, I do recall my mother telling me that she has seen a man in a hat atleast twice in her life, Once
when she was a young girl maybe 8 or 9 and once again shortly after she married my dad, still at a young age of 18.
In the first occurence she said the man was leaning under a lamp post watching her and her siblings play until my Aunt (her older sister) ushered all
the children inside, the man wasnt see again.
The second time, my parents were laying in bed with my father laying on his side facing away from my mother watching TV, My mother was reading and
noticed the figure of a man standing at the foot of the bed, she couldnt make out the man's face or features just to say he was wearing a large
brimmed hat, my mother tried to wake up my father (who was not a force to be reckoned with) to no avail. After several times of screaming my
father's name and shaking him from what I understand to be rather hard, my mother turned back and the man was no longer there, my father woke up and
brushed off the incident as he typically did with most things he didnt witness..
I personally have never seen this man, and to this day I dont believe my mother has seen him since..
