I’m embarking on my fifth book for Lone Pine Publishing (Ghost House
Books) and this one is a little more challenging to research than my
past books on ghost stories. They have commissioned me to collect true
stories of people’s encounters with guardian angels or spirits. Ideally,
these are personal stories, which is why they are more difficult to
If you have a story, or know of a family member or friend who has an
encounter that they would share, please let me know or forward this
message onward. I can guarantee anonymity for anyone who feels
uncomfortable having their name printed – that’s no problem. My email is
"firstname.lastname@example.org". I will need to contact sources to confirm the
information, so if you are sending a third person account, please also
include an email address or phone number for follow up.
Thanks very much for your help!

Hello, my name is Joanna B. Fry, Ph.D., and I would like to thank you
for the newsletter. I am a writer, consultant, and speaker as well as a
professional professional psychic and researcher of paranormal activity.
I would like to alert you to an annual event that is held in San
Antonio, Texas at the historic Menger Hotel ( the oldest continuously
operating hotel west of the Mississippi River.) The Menger is populated
with numerous ghosts of both high and low positions when they were
living in the flesh. I am sure you are aware of this haunted hotel.
On May 21-23 the Menger will be the site of the International Ghost
Disclosure Gathering. There will be internationally know speakers and
psychics speaking on the 22nd of May. This is an informative, reputable
group that some of your people might enjoy. For further information you
may contact the director, Ernesto Malacara, Public Relations Director at
the Menger and founder of GDG, or you may contact me for more

There is a hotel in Mineral Wells, Texas that for a while was the
vacation spot for many stars. It is said to be haunted by the ghost of a
boy who was cut in half by the service elevator and the mistress of the
hotel owner who lived in the penthouse suite. You should definitely
check it out, not only is it haunted by these two particular ghosts, but
there have been several people who have seen spirits in other rooms of
the hotel, particularly the indoor pool which was filled with the
"healing water" that mineral wells was famous for at the time.

Came across your site and thought you would be interested in two well
known places that are definitely haunted. Both are in Calgary, Alberta.
The first is The Deane House near the Fort Calgary site.
( http://www.fortcalgary.com/deane.shtml ).There was a murder/suicide
here and the blood stain in the upstairs room(in the closet) is still
there even after many attempts to remove it. They have even said that it
changes in size and in color. I've been to this room and find it very
The second is at Heritage Park.
( http://www.heritagepark.ca/visitor.htm ). The Prince House, the
Canmore Opera House and the Wainwright Hotel are all said to be haunted.

Actual epitaphs from grave stones ...
Lester Moore was a Wells, Fargo Co. station agent for Naco, Arizona in
the cowboy days of the 1880's. He's buried in the Boot Hill Cemetery in
Here lies Lester Moore
Four slugs from a .44
No Les No More.
In a Georgia cemetery:
"I told you I was sick!"

For not rising.
Memory of an accident in a Uniontown, Pennsylvania cemetery:

Stepped on the gas
Instead of the brake.

Here lays Butch,
We planted him raw.
He was quick on the trigger,
But slow on the draw.

All dressed up
And no place to go.

Here lies Ann Mann,
Who lived an old maid
But died an old Mann.

In a Ribbesford, England, cemetery:
The children of Israel wanted bread
And the Lord sent them manna,
Old clerk Wallace wanted a wife,
And the Devil sent him Anna.
A lawyer's epitaph in England:
Sir John Strange
Here lies an honest lawyer,
And that is Strange.
On Margaret Daniels grave at Hollywood Cemetery Richmond, Virginia:
She always said her feet were killing her
but nobody believed her.
Anna Hopewell's grave in Enosburg Falls, Vermont has an epitaph that
sounds like something from a Three Stooges movie:
Here lies the body of our Anna
Done to death by a banana
It wasn't the fruit that laid her low
But the skin of the thing that made her go.
Someone in Winslow, Maine didn't like Mr. Wood:

The outer wood
Is very good:
We cannot praise

I was wondering if you had anything about places in Utah being haunted?

Came across a site about a house on "H" street in Sacramento, Ca.
reportedly haunted, however now unable to find which site it was and
did not write the address of the house. Was interested in taking a few
shots of the property to see what haunts there I can entice for a photo
shot or two. If anyone has any information about this house please let

I am looking for anyone who receives your newsletter that might have
knowledge of any haunted places in Rhode Island as I am finishing a book
on the haunts of the state.
Although I have tons of places I would like to be as thorough as
possible. I hope you could send the message out in your next

I’m trying to do some research to shed some light on an unusual
occurrence. Has anyone ever heard of unusual/possibly paranormal
occurrences in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, NY? Specifically, Verandah Place,
Henry Street or the intersection of the two?
Many thanks for any info you could provide!
Hi there, I am hoping that you can help me. My husband and I saw a show
on TV last October, haunted hotels or something, on the travel channel
and they did a story on the Mt. Washington Resort/Hotel in New
Hampshire. We loved the look of the hotel and decided it would be
interesting to go there and see if we find anything interesting.
Unfortunately, the travel channel website doesn't list that program or
its contents anymore, and I've come across very few bits of information
about this hotel.
The Shadowlands Ghosts and Hauntings website had a haunted places index
and lists a very tiny bit of information, but oddly enough none of what
they list was included in the TV show. I also purchased the Haunted
Places National Directory listed on your website (the book I got months
ago, the website I found today accidentally!) and I cant remember as of
right now if there was anything at all written in the book about the
hotel. If there was, it isn't of great depth, or else I wouldn't be
sending out this email! I've sent out numerous other emails to various
websites, and those gracious enough to get back to me, all basically
said that they didn't know anything at all, but want to hear back if we
I am just wondering if you possibly have any information on this hotel
that may be of use to me when I go there. Any information you have, or
could give, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Is there any haunted places in my area ? I live in NH near Litchfeild

haunted locations in Wisconsin would be helpful.

Hey, all...wondering if anyone knew of any reliable and academic sources
on animal consciousness/animal mind? I am going to do my paper for the
Phi./Metaphysics on the animal mind, and then branch it out to include
One night while trying to fall asleep I spotted a small, round, bright
light on my bedroom ceiling. I thought it might be a reflection of the
street light that was out side my bed room window on to my make up
mirror on the floor of my bedroom. I took my hand and waved it over the
mirror and nothing happened. About 2 to 3 days later, again at night, I
was going to sleep when i felt something get into bed with me. I felt a
body lie down with me and I thought it was my cat who like to sleep with
me but when i looked around my cat was no where to be found and the
pressure was also gone. To this day i think it was my mother who had
pass away a few years earlier.
No Listing this month.
