I've had a few ghostly experiences in my life, but I never investigated the paranormal beyond the sasquatch phenomenon, which really is not
paranormal in the sense most use the word. However, I remember going to do an EVP session at a small town cemetery late on night. I did not choose a
cemetery because of all the dead bodies, as I did not think that really mattered as much. I chose the spot because the town was so old, and I had read
that back in the 1800's social events were often held in cemeteries. So I went out there one cold night with two of my brothers.
Anyway, I was not expecting to get anything, and I did not really ask more than a few basic questions. However, upon reviewing the recording a few
days later, I was astounded. I should mention that I was recording on an old flip phone at this time, so not the best equipment. Anyway, I could hear
what sounded like horses pulling a wagon, and then I heard what I assume was the driver yelling "yah" at his horses. It was relatively clear as
well. This was some time ago, and I keep thinking there was something else, but I cannot remember now.
So it seems that this was some type of residual haunting that would have taken place had I been there or not. But it seemed to be only a audio
phenomenon, with no accompanying visual evidence. This cemetery is quite away from everything, because the town has moved further away from where it
used to be located. Therefore what was bustling back in the 1800's is basically dead calm today. I know that what I heard could not be attributed to
someone with a horse and wagon in the cemetery, as it would have been easily noticeable, as the cemetery is not large at all.
There are many civil war era graves, as there was a Confederate troop training station and railhead that was located in this town back in the day. I
know that a yellow fever epidemic also killed many people, and a slave uprising, or race riot or something, cost many their lives back then as well.
So I would be willing to bet that some other spots in the town would give good evidence as well. So maybe some of you should try old cemeteries at
night, just in case they used to be centers of public gatherings back in the day.
