bedroom, two story house, 150+ years old, occupied by four adults,
three dogs, and one cat.
clients' home was passed down generation through generation and a few
family members have died on the property. The clients moved into this
house when one of their daughters was three years old. She began
telling her father about things she saw or people who would talk to
her at night who were long deceased before she was born. Her little
brother, now 17, has also had strange experiences. Until recently, no
one has ever felt threatened, however, the clients have three small
grandchildren who are 1, 2 and 3 years old. The oldest grandson will
sit on the staircase looking towards the top and have conversations,
however, no one is there. There are times when the client's daughter
is in the home alone and will hear footsteps and see shadows on the
staircase. The family cat will no longer go upstairs to sleep at
night and, any time its dark, will hide under the couch. The dogs
seem to be aware of something, as well. They will not go upstairs to
sleep at night. The clients are currently foster parents and one of
the children claim a fan flew across the room at him. Another claims
they smell perfume every night at 2:30 a.m. The clients believe that
any activity in the house would be caused by deceased family members
and are looking for validation of their experiences by having an
system with IR cameras (5)

Virginia entered the home, she was greeted by the spirit of Ella.
Ella is the Mother of the owner. Ella began telling Virginia how
their home has changed a lot and it was not the same. This made
Virginia feel very disoriented. This information was confirmed by the
son/homeowner. As Virginia began the walk- through of the home with
the owner, she felt she should go upstairs and again, Ella told
Virginia nothing was the same. Ella showed Virginia her bedroom and
began telling her that she had lost a young child with a B name and
this had broken her heart. This information was confirmed by the
son. Ella was not trapped and appeared to be the matriarch of the
family. Although there were other spirits of family members there,
Ella would not allow them to speak. During the investigation, Ella
made it very clear to Virginia that the whole family was together in
the spirit world, very happy staying in the home with their living
family and that was all Virginia needed to know.
Virginia picked up a soldier with a big mustache who was wounded in
the leg, which is the owner’s brother who passed away. The owner
took Virginia outside on the porch where she picked up a man who took
his own life. This was the owner’s great-grandfather. Virginia
also picked up another tragedy which took place across the way. She
picked up graves of animals and American Indian graves towards the
back of the home. This was confirmed by the owner. Virginia also
picked up the energy of a male who passed near the kitchen and a
female who died in the dining room, which used to be a bedroom. This
also was confirmed by the owner.
the investigation on this particular date, investigators were not
able to document any physical activity via audio, video or other
means. No personal experiences were noted and the home was quiet.
Investigators were able to rule out common causes of “perceived”
paranormal activity. There were no elevated magnetic fields which
could cause a person to experience some events that they may think
were paranormal, but were in fact caused by the high magnetic field.
With the lack of supporting physical evidence of a haunting at this
location, scientifically we can not determine if any spirits may be
was able to confirm for the owner that the spirits of their family
were still present and no “cross overs” were necessary. The
clients felt strongly that the activity they were experiencing was
caused by deceased family members who still visit the home and this
was confirmed by Virginia. Virginia also felt that one of the
client's daughters was very open and had her Grandmother's gift.
Virginia felt that the Daughter did something to open the veil to the
other side and the Daughter did confirm this. Virginia provided this
daughter with information in order to learn to harness her gift and
protect herself on a psychic/spiritual level.
