I’ve run into several articles about the toll that houses said to be haunted takes on those wishing to rent those properties. Who wants to live with a freeloading phantom?
L.T. Gallagher and James A. Meath might or might not have believed in ghosts.
But they certainly believed they were haunted.
Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can hear me read many of the ghost reports here, readings first heard on episodes of The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts.
UPDATE: Having transcribed 146 ghost reports for Spectral Edition: Ghost Reports from U.S. Newspaper, 1865-1917, I’m now working on an Introduction, one that attempts to explain why so many ghost reports appeared when they did. Look for updates on my progress here at The Merry Ghost Hunter site and on my Facebook author page.
