Unfortunately, most people do not realize that many dear relatives who have passed away were often buried on old home or farm sites several decades ago, because the homeowner and remaining relatives could not afford, funerals, memorials or caskets. Thus cremation was the cheapest way to go. This sometimes turns out to be quite sad.
On a property once owned by my aunt in Seattle, there are 3 unmarked graves. My family was never rich, and my father's family believed cremation was simpler and cleaner. Thus, when my grandmother passed away in 1971 my aunt took her ashes, her deceased husband's ashes, and my grandfather's ashes (from the 1940's) and finally buried them under a large tree in the backyard.
This is very difficult to deal with if you are like me and want to be able to visit the grave site. The house was purchased after my aunt died, so new owners unknown to me, probably have no idea. Many, many times, I have wanted to ask the owners, to please let me take back the ashes and have them placed in a columbarium at my church. However, I have never had the nerve to do so, and there are probably illegalities attached to that. I miss my relatives so much, and it is of no comfort at all, to know where they are, or suspect that the owners found the urns and threw them away. As well, it is possible that my aunt did not bury the urns, but just the ashes themselves. It hurts. That house is not on the market, but if it were, I would wish to reclaim those ashes, since I certainly don't have money to buy any home at this point in my life.
Someone has purchased a gem in the raw with this " One Spooky House!" Would be great to film shows from that house! It must be lovely inside too. Just needing some polishing up
It does look like a dark figure on porch(almost too clear, to not be made up) and unless it is a shadow am not sure what it is? The people who used to live there may be active living the life they remember, as that was all they knew how to do and liked it ,and feel they had some unfiinished business?
I messed up Virginia, sorry! I have to say Lake boy, that corruption in Freddy Mac and Fanny Mae, and the finance team Barney Frank, all got away with creating a bubble that burst. I was affected. I bought a home for 50,000. It's list price five years ago was 185,000. I had to put in another 30,000. First let me say a house is not worth anymore than someone is willing to pay for it!Economics 101.
Now before you count me as a fa tcat. I lost my original home that was going for 700.000. The stocks fell, 401 fell, retirements were tied to index. The ex-home is worth about 200,000 which I gladly give back to the bank. People are living in tents here in Florida. I count myself lucky! If you have a roof over your head your lucky too!
I lived in Virgin1a, I know most of the haunted homes. Abington Inn, is my favorite. I will tell you that in 1960, a huge black cemetery was dug up reasons only known to government in Washington D.C. I would ride with my father on Saturdays to the Capitol. As the graves were being lifted up, I shuddered. My father stated "Never be afraid of the dead, be afraid of the living!"
I am a ghost hunter, have gone with taps and chip coffee. I love the search. These homes are everywhere, not just in Virginal! I love them! What I have found is most people haunt themselves about 90%. I have encountered several in hundreds of homes. Only a few. Most can be explained scientifically, electro- Magnetic fields, water under ground, ect. I know many believe in demonic haunting, I can say I have never had that experience. I could just be lucky! Happy haunting!
