A Ghost Report from the Nashville Union and American on November 19, 1868

Spectral Edition

Before the Civil War, a horrible murder occurred in a house in Greensburg, Indiana. The murderer escaped and was eventually killed in the war.

    1. Hmmm, all I know is how Vera Van Slyke handles these things.

      Sometimes, she certainly does try to “free” them. Other times, the ghosts just seem to be here to accomplish one more thing before they move on willingly.

    1. I do my best to tag each article with the state, the date, and what kind of haunting it is (for example, haunted houses, haunted grounds, even haunted persons). I know there have been a few articles about ghosts in New York and some in the New England states.

      If you do a search for a specific state, you just might find something!
