Hello!
My name is Tonya and I've only been part of this group for a short time, but love receiving the emails and checking out the website.
I live in A***, TX. and have an interesting, paranormal occurance in my home twice a day (since Dec. 2000)....
My grandmother passed away Dec. 20th, 2000 and since that first week after her funeral, we always hear a doorbell chime... once at 3:34pm and twice at 8:34pm.
The first year it began, it would happen anywhere....in any room of the house.....particularly my son's room....then it would switch to my daughter's room for a couple months, then on to my room.   It would happen in the car and anytime we went on vacation that year (out of state and on that state's time zone)....
After that first year, the doorbell chime localized itself in my son's room (his closet) and has remained there ever since.
I know it's a sign from my grandmother and the significance of the times 3:34 and 8:34 have very specific meanings (as I figured it all out about 2 years ago) and only cemented the fact that it was a true sign from my grandma (and her mother....my great grandma).
When the summer time zone switches, then the doorbell chimes at 4:34pm (once) and 9:34pm (twice) ........as we all know that there is no "time" on the other side, but when the daylight savings time goes back into effect each fall, the original times go back to the original beginning of 3:34 and 8:34 (834 was the prefix of my grandma's phone number for over 30 years)....
I also have some very interesting spirit photography and continue to collect more each month...(I'm a picture taking fanatic ((-:    )that I'd love to share with other members here.
I've received other signs from loved one's who have passed....such as my washing machine coming on by itself and many other things.
I've never gone on a group trip to experience and investigate 'hauntings"  etc. but I have received messages for other people from their loved one's and have passed them on.  I'm currently working on that skill as to help others.
I appreciate your website and group of people.  It's nice to have others that believe in the "other side" or at least show interest to talk to and share stories with.
I'm very much open to sharing this "doorbell" experience with anyone wanting to hear it.   It's pretty amazing and I feel so lucky to get this sign from my grandmother on a daily basis for these past 4 years!!!
Thanks for letting me share,
Tonya Gist
As legend has it, one of the houses was home to a massacre.  There is a house right off one of the trails.  A house that has stood the test of time, undisturbed by unknown forces, maybe for a reason.  I Ďm not sure of a timetable but some time ago it saw sorrow.  The owner of the house had quite a number of groundskeeper and a beautiful wife much younger than him.  The owner was a successful businessman who stayed gone the majority of the time and left his wife in the care of a maid.  The maid kept an eye on his wife while he was gone but she couldnít watch her all the time.  The young wife had a lust for other men and would go behind the back of the maid.  She had her way with the grounds crew and many others while the owner was out.  The maid knew of all this but kept it secret, knowing that the owner would surely fire if not kill everyone on the grounds including her.  The owner of the house had an idea of what was going on behind his back, so he devised a plan to let everyone think he was going way but he hid on the acreage in secret so he could find out what was truly happening.

            He hid in the barn, so he took a nap in a stable so he could walk the grounds at night.  Sometime that afternoon he was awoken by the sound of his wife and one of the grounds crew, in the next stable.  Very quietly he peered over the rails and saw the groundskeeper and his wife making love.  The owner lost all sense of reality and went into a murderous frenzy.  First he killed both his wife and her lover, by stabbing both of them several times with a spear.  Then he went after the maid.  He found her and slowly killed her.  The other grounds crew could hear her screams and ran and hid in the woods.  The crew whispered about where to run to next but to no avail they all were murdered.  Then the owner finally realized what he had done and took his own life.  By the time the police had arrived, 11 people had been taken away before their time.  12 if you count the owner of the land.

            People still say you can go up there at night and hear the whispers in the woods.  Some nights if youíre lucky you can hear the screams.  I only heard the whispers.

The Sanctuary
Whispering Woods
by Clark from the Haunted Edge
Every since I can remember, I have been interested in a little piece of land in a nearby area.  For my own and others safety, I wont say where it is, specifically.  Those who know what Iím talking, know, others need not.  I really donít know where the name came from but Satanís Hollow fits this place to a tee.  There are many stories of this place this is one of them.

            My dad and I use to go up there and watch planes take off.  Even he said the place was haunted.  He never went into detail and I never asked so I had to take it upon myself to see what was up there.  Of the group, I was probably the first to go there and tell everyone of its unspeakable horror.  Folklore of Satanís Hollow has been widespread around this area.  Itís a large area with many trails, woods, and abandoned houses.  It also has ruins of a couple houses.  Itís overrun with hunters because of the woods and its wildlife population.  I always imagined it in its heyday, back in the late 1800ís and early 1900ís, clean-cut landscape and houses decorated for weekend parties.  Smaller versions of southern plantations with a number of groundskeepers, who stayed on the premises in their own quarters.

In Fort Worth about two months ago we went to log cabin village I wasn't out of the car for five minutes taking pictures at night before she called to me, we have to go. She had whelps covering her body. I had to pull over so she could throw up a few blocks down the road. The further we got away the whelps went away and she felt fine.


In St. Augustine at the old military hospital same old thing throwing up she had to leave the building in the middle of the tour. She started crying in there an uncontroable sadness came over her in the old hospital. In Louisiana all the old plantations some make her sick some don't, She is something to be with in New Orleans..lolSavannah is a funny place to. She got scratch marks up and down her legs there in on of the squares.In some places she feels very scared, some places sad, different emotions with different places.We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast in St. Augustine. we didn't unpack .
When we got our room. we went and laid in a hammock right when we got our room for about an hour. When we went back into our room our suitcase had been unpacked. clothes were in the dresser and hanging up to. it was a private balcony and part of the room. I asked the owner if him and his staff went into our room and unpacked for us. He didn't. He was not surprised by this either.
Story Continued from Home Page
Hello my name is steve. Me and my wife Tina are ghost hunt on our own for the past couple of years. Mostly in the south. There is something funny about my wife that we have never told anyone. I'll give you a couple of stories.

We were at the Jefferson Davis house in ole miss. It was daytime we were walking the grounds but when we headed to the confederate cemetery my wife's feet felt like they were getting stuck with needles
.
We looked at her feet they looked like they had been getting stuck with needles going up her legs the closer we got to the cemetery. they were small red whelps. She started getting nauseous. We turned around to leave. The Further we get away the less she felt this. we left and not long afterward the little red marks were gone. She felt uncomfortable on the grounds even when we walked through the house.

The Fishing Trip
I had never heard of anything like that before.
That's amazing.

Poor baby and family though. =/

And to add some paranormal stuff in here.. a few weeks ago she had a case with another nurse. The kid was in very bad health and was expected to die soon. While they were taking care of him, he was asleep then he started stalking in his sleep (which he had never done before). They went in to check on him and, in his sleep he was saying things like "No.. I don't want to go.. wait until 12:10.. I don't want to go until 12:10.."

He ended up dying at 12:11.
