Reader Submission: A Haunted Home

by cnkguy
Reader Submission: A Haunted Home

“I live in a house that even my father, a staunch skeptic, believes might be haunted. For as long as I can remember, we’ve often heard an assortment of bizarre sounds. Some are easily explainable, most aren’t.

Sounds in the Night

My grandparents occupied the residence before us. My grandma, though bedridden, was mentally sound. On more than one occasion, she told my grandpa that she heard an infant crying in the basement, usually in the middle of the night. When he and my uncle would investigate, they found nothing.

As a child, I became accustomed to hearing footsteps in the kitchen, also late at night. My mother and brother have reported hearing the same, while my father has occasionally heard someone running through the house when nobody else is awake. I’ve heard muffled voices carrying on full conversations, even when I’m home alone with no electronics on. Unfortunately, I can never make out what’s being said.

The Burned Man

When my brother was sixteen, he woke up on night to see a badly burned man standing in front of his bed, staring at him. My brother, not one to scare easily, began screaming. When our parents came to check on him, he was practically hysterical, explaining that as soon as he opened his mouth, the burned man got down on all fours and climbed underneath his bed. My father searched the entire house but found no one.

After that, my brother slept in the living room for a few nights, and still won’t talk about the experience except to say that he knows it wasn’t a vivid dream. There is no history of a fire occurring on the property but at least one other person, a family friend, saw a burned man standing in our kitchen. The man simply vanished after a few seconds. Our friend told us this without knowing anything of my brother’s encounter.

Strange Events

There have been other strange experiences. Lights switching on or off by themselves, loud bangs with no apparent source, and appliances turning on when nobody has been near them. One evening, I was using the restroom, forgetting to lock the door. I watched as the knob turned, and the door opened slightly, before it closed again. The only other person home was my father, who denied leaving his bedroom at the time of the incident. Various family members and friends have seen a tall man wearing a black hoody in various parts of the house, always with the hood up. As far as I know, nobody has seen his face, as he’s always standing with his back to them.

It’s a known fact among my family that the house is creepy. So much so that some won’t even visit anymore. We’ve learned to live with it, and don’t believe the spirits are dangerous. Still, it can be jarring to see or hear something unusual.”

The Gray Man Returns

by cnkguy
The Gray Man Returns

In South Carolina, a figure known as the Gray Man appears on the beach before devastating storms. The harbinger spirit normally appears in Pawleys Island, but as Hurricane Florence bears down on the Carolinas, some believe he’s making the rounds to warn residents up and down the coast.

Dating back to 1822, the legend of the Gray Man goes something like this:

A mysterious man in gray appears on the beach – either walking near beachgoers or waving to boaters – before disappearing without a trace. Soon after his appearance, a major storm strikes the area, leaving many people hurt or homeless. Though the area is devastated, those who saw the Gray Man before the dangerous weather survive the storm unscathed.

The Gray Man in Myrtle Beach? 

In July, a family vacationing in Myrtle Beach took pictures from their balcony and were surprised to see a gray figure in one of the images (below

). Was it the Gray Man? Myrtle Beach is 25 miles from Pawleys Island, but perhaps the beach-dwelling spirit traveled north to warn residents about the future hurricane.

Gray Man Reports in Pawleys Island

As Hurricane Florence approaches the Carolinas, residents of Pawleys Island have reported seeing the Gray Man.

Hurricane Hugo was the last serious hurricane to strike Pawleys Island, but Hurricane Florence may soon change that. What do you think of the Gray Man legend? Endearing story or a real-life guardian spirit?

True Ghost Story: The Yosemite Doppelganger

by cnkguy
True Ghost Story: The Yosemite Doppelganger

“We visited Yosemite Park September 7-9, 2018. We spent two nights in a cottage near #7285. When we went there, the cottage seemed spectacular: classical-looking on the outside, but modern-looking on the inside, with complete facilities and supplies. We truly enjoyed our first night there.

Then came September 8 when we returned to our lodge after spending the whole day in Yosemite Valley. All eight of us were in the kitchen, busily preparing for dinner, when I felt the urge to use the restroom downstairs. As I reached the top of the stairs coming back, I saw my uncle on my left, four feet away from me, walking towards the stairs I had just climbed. In my hurry to go back to the kitchen, I could only see him in my left peripheral vision. He was walking towards me as if he needed to go to the bathroom as well. I did not talk to him and just went straight to the kitchen, but something kept bugging me. He didn’t normally use the restroom near the bunkbed where my mom, brother, and I slept, so why was he going there now?

The question lingered in me as I returned to the kitchen. To my surprise, my uncle was there, grilling corn. I could not help but to look at him with wide eyes, because if everyone was in the kitchen cooking, then who was the ‘person’ I had just encountered on the stairs?

When I told my relatives what had happened, terror also appeared in their faces. But since my little cousins were with us, they just acted as if my story was a joke and made up excuses about who or what I saw. I listened to them, but deep within me I knew what I had seen. It had looked exactly like my uncle.

Thankfully, the night went swimmingly well, and I was able to sleep. When morning came, I saw that my brother was not in his bunk bed. Instead, I found him sleeping in the living room.

At breakfast, he told everyone that he was not able to sleep soundly because he’d heard footsteps in the kitchen and the living room. There was my confirmation. We’d both encountered the same ‘creature,’ slowly creeping around our cottage.”

Ghosts of the Labor Day Hurricane

by cnkguy
Ghosts of the Labor Day Hurricane

On September 2, 1935, the Labor Day Hurricane slammed into the Florida Keys, obliterating everything in its path and sweeping scores of men, women, and children out to sea. At least 423 people died in the Category 5 storm, though no one knows just how many perished. Even today, lost victims’ skeletal remains occasionally surface, along with whispered tales of ghosts.

In 1935, the only way in and out the Keys was by boat or by rail. As the storm drew near, escape by boat was impossible, and nearly 1,000 people found themselves trapped. A rescue train braved the pounding wind and rain, but was overcome when it stopped to help the stranded. The train cars quickly flooded, and many of the people who thought themselves saved were drowned or swept away. For years after the disaster, reports of a phantom train plagued the area.

“The Key West Extension of the Florida East Coast Railway was never rebuilt after the storm, but in the early 1940s, weird events began to be experienced along the old line,” reports American Hauntings Ink. “The sound of a steam engine and a train whistle could sometimes be heard later at night and occasionally, a headlight could be seen silently rolling by in the early hours of the morning.”

The phantom train isn’t the only hurricane-related haunting. Legend has it the victims’ tortured spirits roam the swamps at night, searching for help that never comes. The hunched figures reportedly stagger in the same direction before fading back into the darkness, only to repeat their fruitless march another night. 

Do you think victims of the Labor Day Hurricane haunt Key West to this day? Or are the stories nothing more than remnants from the tragic past?
