November to December 2005 Ghost Stories


In recent weeks it has come to my attention that certain parties are using my ghost stories and those of my contributors as references for their own commercial enterprises.  If you or someone you know is writing a book on ghosts in the Pacific Northwest, PLEASE DO NOT!!! copy or use the following stories or any other materials within this website as references.

SUBJECT:  Another Haunted Place to add to your list


 Ran across your webpage through oregonlive.com.  I thought you might be interested in another haunted Portland place to put on your list.

 It is Kayís Bar & Grill located on the corner of Bybee & Milwaukee Avenue in Westmoreland/Sellwood.  It has been featured on the news a couple of times and the bartenders will openly talk about the ghosts that live there.  I believe there is a child ghost and an old man ghost.

 Anyway, just FYI.

SUBJECT:  A ghostly ability to see the other side!


My name is Joseph K. and recently I have started to gain the ability to see Ghosts.  It seems to be increasing every day.  To me there is nothing scary about it, but other people seem to think that I am crazy.  I have what is referred to as ESP.  When I walk into a room or a place, like a house, that has spirits running about I can sense it almost immediately.  I live a few blocks away from a place in Port Townsend, Washington, called Fort Worden. 

My mother works at the Fort and has also had some unusual experiences.  The more I focus on the Arial plain the more I see and experience.  I am also receiving the gift of accessing visions of the past lives that I have had and also the past lives of those that I come in contact with.  So far I have never had a bad experience with those who have past over but sometimes I wonder if I will. 

This actually dates back to when I was a kid when I first saw what appeared to me to be a tortured spirit.  I was wondering if this ability that I have developed is ever going to be useful for any reason?  Does anyone in your organization have the same abilities that I do? 


Please let me know if I can help your organization in any way!


Thank you for your time,

Joseph  K.

 If anyone is interested in working with Joseph, I can put you in touch with him

 Thanks Jeff,

Yes, it should help.  Thanks! I'm in Longview so it does have an old library, I will go there & see what I can find out. I have gone back on some names of past owners since the late 1800's.  The land the cemetery is on up the hill was once a part of this property, they donated it for the cemetery in 1880's. I found 4 of the previous owners so far that are buried there. I also was able to get a few pictures of a couple of them. One of the family's pictures of the mom & dad from the late 1800's early 1900's look like the man & women some witness including myself have seen here. Chris the psychic that was with SWPR always got the names Henry & Mary when she visited here.  Henry & Mary are names of the past owner's, the ones I have pictures of, so that was kinda neat to learn. She also got a lot of other things, but even before that I always felt they are not the only ones here.

 Thanks again for your help.

SUBJECT:  Hauntings

 I just have a question; do any of your books contain stories on ghosts at Washington State University?  My niece just started classes this fall and lives in dorm which apparently used to be the mental ward of a hospital many years ago, and I don't have any specifics yet, but she has been seeing things.  So I was wondering if any of your books covered hauntings there so I could read more about it.

 Thank you,

  Hello there, Mr. Davis. How are you doing? It's been a long time since we last talked. How is your latest book coming along? Were you able to visit some of the places I asked you about? I recently visited Bruce Lee's grave in Seattle and took some pictures and found something very interesting in one of them. My girlfriend and I were the only people there that day and she was standing in front of the tombstone when it was taken, yet thereís still a reflection of what looks like a small Asian man. Take a look and tell me what you think, especially look in the reflection on the tombstone. Get back to me at your convenience.



The original photograph sent me was a high resolution jpeg, which I digitally shrunk in resolution to fit in this web page.  Please not the corona at the bottom of the picture, which could be the result of lens flare?  Also look on the grave stone, to the left of the picture of Bruce Lee.

SUBJECT:  Reply to T.C.'s photograph 

Hello T.C.

 I looked at the photo you sent.  By any chance, does your girlfriend have short black hair?  Was there a tombstone behind her when she took the picture?  I ask that, because the picture looks like who ever it is is leaning against a tombstone (behind) the photographer.  Was this taken with a digital camera or a standard film camera?

 If your girlfriend has long, blond hair, that is a pretty compelling image.

Hello Mr. Davis,


  Well, first off, we were the only people in the area that day. Also, my girlfriend has long, light brown hair and was standing kind of the side of the tombstone. Furthermore, there is no grave in front of Bruce Lees grave.  There is a small white bench which was unoccupied at the time sitting in front of the graves, and that is where I can clearly see the person sitting in the reflection in the picture.  It was taken with a regular disposable camera. Let me know what you think.  Thanks.


Does anyone have any input?

 I am very interested in the Vancouver Barracks Hospital and have been for a couple years.  do you know if there is any way I can get a tour?  thank you   Jenna   V.

 I was writing to you to ask if you can give me any information about the history of the Hospital.  I was wondering if there is any way you could tell me who I could talk to that has anything to do with the hospital.  For example Mike Lakey (the civilian employee) as you say in your b


There is a company that offers ghost walks, either by appointment or during the summer months.  There is also an annual Halloween celebration around the Vancouver Barracks area.  I do not have the contact information at this time.  The old hospital building is currently closed off, and not open to the public.

SUBEJCT:  Harmony House

 Your website asked for us to email you if we knew of other haunted places that weren't on your list. 

 FYI there is a restaurant in an old house in Clackamas area of Oregon, on Rt. 212 a couple of miles east of I-205.  Its called the Harmony House and they say the house is haunted and have several newspaper clippings telling of the spooky things that have happened there.  If you do a Google search for "Haunted Harmony House Oregon" you'll find a couple of websites that reference it.

 Iím just saying hi and seeing how things are going for you.     Iím in Florida and really bored everyone is in bed but me.  Oh!  Are you working on a new book?  If you are I would love to read it.  I been noticing the in some of your stories you doing finish the end.

Well you do but some of them feel for more of an ending.  But its getting late I should go to bed because Mom and dad want my brother and I to go for a road trip.  That means look at big houses.  I think thatís a waste of my time because itís no fun. You sit in a car and look and never leave the car.

  I rather go in historical places and feel every time from the air to the books.  When I get in Historical Places I can feel all the sad times and mostly the good times.  Anyway, Iím going to bed its 2:51am so see ya. 

Write me soon
