Union Cemetery

Not every cemetery may be haunted, but we think this one is. There have been several interesting encounters and although the cemetery is still being researched and investigated, we're pretty sure it's strange. This is an old cemetery in Middle Island near an old school house. It is quite large and contains some very intriguing tombstones.

One of our first experiences was with another group. While John (editor) was on the far right side of the cemetery, two women heard his voice distinctly calling out from the complete opposite end of the property. They also claim to have seen what might haehave been his figure standing in the shadows. While it is possible that in excitement, the figure could have been imagined, the two women did not immediately realize the voice was not really from John until they asked over the radio, and there would be little reason to invent the experience.

As you can see, some of thesr tombstones are old and some are showig their age. We do not know of any specific incident or family here that would be directly related to a haunting at this time.

The most significant event is a strange mist we caught on camera. The weather was chilly and the ground was admittedly damp that night. We split up to cover more grounsd. During my ramblings I stopped to photograph a partivularly interesting tombstone engraved with an anchor. Kneeling in thedamp grass with my tripod I took ashot and noticedthat it came out rather fuzzy. IntriguedI looked up from the LCD screen and saw a strange mist just past the tombstone. Fog is a posibility but usually fog will spread out along the horizon. This was a small 8 - 10 foot diameter cluster that was about 3 feet in height give or take a few inches. I took rapid fire still photos as the mist moved closer. It came through the stone toeard me, through me, and disappeared somewhere behind me.

In the photos you will not see the boundary of the mist because they are close up shots but the boundary was there. Also no other members asw any mist or fog elsewhere in the cemetery. Regrettably the paranormal society member holding the thermometer was all the way across the cemetery so we were unable to get a temperature reading. You can see the progression of images on your left.

Also since our investigations we have been told that a man's car recently crashed throwing him through the windshield and into the cemetery not very far from that point. There is also a rumor of a woman having died in the back by the bench. These claims are still being substantiated. If you know something, please let us know!
