Apparition of a Suicide Victim
During the late 1800s there was a paranormal investigative
society known as the Society for Psychical Research, or SPR. This society investigated
over 700 incidents which they compiled into a study. The following case was one
of their most interesting encounters.
According to the case notes, there was once a girl named
Ellen. Ellen was in love with a disreputable young man whom her family did not
approve of. In order to ensure that she would not marry this man, Ellen was
sent to Brighton, which is on the southern coast of England. One night, Ellens
mother and young brother were sitting outside in their garden. All of a sudden
the brother exclaimed “Look mother there is Ellen!” Sure enough Ellen was seen
dressed in black walking at the edge of the garden. The mother told the brother
to go and see what she was doing there, however due to a sprained foot the
brother was unable to run towards her. Instead they called in the house to have
the youngest sister come out and run to her. They wanted to bring Ellen back
before her father saw her and there was an unpleasant scene. The youngest
sister ran across the lawn yelling Ellens name. Ellen did not respond. She
simply continued walking down the pathway away from the house. When the young
girl finally caught up with her sister she asked where she was going. She went
to grab her sisters arm when her hand passed right through her. She ran back to
her mother and told her what she had seen. The next day the family learnt that
Ellen had thrown herself into the sea and drowned at the exact same hour she had
appeared to them in the garden.

The urban legend behind this picture is how a guy and his girlfriend took a picture of their cat because it kept hissing at the patio doors for no reason. He put the picture on his laptop and noticed the outline of a small girl. They have no children.

The Espanola Cemetery, Florida
I’ve always had paranormal experiences, ever since I was a child, as my
mother and grandmother, etc. It runs in my family so I have had a few
but this one definitely stands out.
I had a former student who had died in a car accident and was not able
to make it to the funeral so I, along with a friend of mine and her son,
drove to the cemetary so I could visit his grave. Her son is autistic
but he had been to this cemetary before with no issues. We got there and
all was fine. I was looking for the grave while still in the car it
would have been fresh so not difficult to spot. The Espanola Cemetary is
not that large and has graves dating to the Civil War and before. I had
started feeling uneasy for absolutely no reason but didn’t say
anything. I finally spotted the grave and were getting ready to stop
when Evan became panicked. He said he wanted to leave right away and got
very agitated. He had been happy and talking a minute before. I also
felt almost lighthearted and said to my friend I thought we needed to go
anyway. On an impulse I took my phone and turned it around and snapped a
picture of Evan in the back seat. Once we left the cemetary he was fine
but did say that he never wanted to “go back to that nightmare.” Later
on I looked at the picture and was astounded. A few say they don’t see
anything but it took me 1 second to see 3 distinct figures in the
reflection of his glasses. Like they were standing in front of the car. I
also found a figure on the seat by him. To me it is obvious and it is
to others as well. I do not go and try to take “ghost” pics. This was
purely on impulse. I’ve had someone who does paranormal research look at
the pic and he saw it immediately also. The 3 figures are an old man, a
woman with hair that looks like civil war era, and a boy in a cowboy
hat. Interestingly, when I showed my mother the picture she threw my
phone and said delete it. No one should keep pictures of the dead. I had
not even told her what was on the pic. I only asked her what she saw.

My family has a history of being haunted. Of my own experiences, three houses I’ve lived in had strange things happen within. When I was a baby, my mom would hear the creaky garage door open and close on Wednesday evenings. There was never anyone.
In the house we lived in when I was a preteen to early teens, a blue lady was seen multiple times by several people. However, she seemed very benevolent, fortunately. I heard her singing one night. I haven’t heard a more beautiful voice than hers.
In my current home, a dark, shrouded, child sized figure has been seen. We’ve been poked, heard footsteps (including very loud, running, stomping ones that rushed up right behind me. It sounded like a child running), I’ve heard my name called numerous times and a small object once flew off the kitchen table at lunchtime, which was witnessed by my brother, sister and I. My cat will also occasionally sit between me and my bedroom door, staring out into the room beyond. No one is ever there when he does this.
The house I’m currently living in was once the site of a Civil War skirmish and it is close to where the murder of a train robber took place. My great, great grandfather committed suicide many years ago near here, too. His ghost has been seen by the neighbors, wandering about on their farm.
