J.K. Klinghardt hanged himself in a woods in Crawford Couty, Ohio. Afterward, Horace Burger built his daughter and son-in-law a cottage near that woods.
Klinghardt’s ghost haunted that cottage — and local officials investigated. The evidence was convincing. One man even claimed to have a photograph of the ghost!
Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can also hear me read the articles on recent episodes of The Big Séance podcast.
