Haunted Grandfather Clocks

Clocks often remind us of just how short life is. People often refer to time as “running out.” Others refer to it in terms of “not enough time,” or “fleeting.”

There are many tales of haunted furniture. Helen, an assistant editor of a Denver, Colorado newspaper, shared the following story. It is compelling.

She writes…

One heirloom, a grandfather clock, was passed down through 5 generations of my family.

This clock was unusual in that it not only noted the time of day but also the time of death of its owners.

My great, great grandfather was the original owner of this clock. At the exact hour and minute of his death his favorite clock stopped ticking.

My great uncle then inherited this clock. His death also was noted by this amazing timepiece’s failure to continue keeping time.

The next owner of the clock was Helen’s grandfather. This man’s life ended at the exact moment this heirloom clock stopped.

Helen’s father was the next family member to own this timepiece. He weary of these coincidences decided to stop the clock and put it in storage. One can’t blame him.

The clock this time did not note his passing. Helen anxious to end the strange connection this clock had to her family decided to sell it.

Author J. Michael Norman shared the story above he also told the following brief story about another inherited clock.

After one family’s uncle died they moved several items that he had left to them into their home.

The largest item was an old grandfather clock. They quickly came to believe this clock was still connected to their deceased relative.

Whenever they stood near it they experienced odd emotions, they also often felt cold spots.

Strangest of all they smelled the strong scent of their uncles’ favorite pipe tobacco when they were near this clock.

They decided to remove all their Uncle’s items from their home. Things calmed down and they no longer felt their uncle’s presence.
