Subject: Hi Jeff
here (from AGHOST)_ hope you and Jeanine had a wonderful holiday! What do ya
think of all the snow and ice? I'm lovin' it, even though it melted all away
sending you a note that I forgot earlier. Well, months earlier. I wanted
to let you know about the haunt up in Bellingham, Jacci's Fish and Chips. I
remembered that she told me in the Spring of 2006 that they haven't had any
occurrences since her son laid a piece of carpet down on the lower level of the
before, they would hear footsteps upstairs while they were downstairs.
And noises coming from downstairs while they (or herself) were
upstairs She also informed me that she recently purchased a home and
apparently it has a resident there that's "unseen". She feels that it
was a previous homeowner who passed away in the home but she doesn't feel
threatened. She learned upon the purchase of the home through the widow that he
passed away there. Apparently, she
has seen a picture of the husband and it was a striking resemblance. He's appeared to her is what she had revealed to me.
However, she didn't want to let the previous homeowner know because she
didn't know how responsive the widow be.
a small update.
all is well and hope to see you folks again soon. You two are always a pleasure
to be around. Give Jeanine my best.

work at the Moran Mansion in the San Juan Island chain, and during last summer I
was working by myself in the office; the doors and windows were closed and I was
just sitting there thinking. I was very sad and felt like I was on the verge of
tears, until the hairs on the back of my neck started to stand, and I heard a
female’s voice whisper into my ear “She’s going to cry”. That shocked me
to turn around thinking; someone could have come in without my knowledge was
hard since the door itself makes a noise every time it is open and closed.
time, again by myself, I was writing a reservation and the chair started to turn
and I tried to keep it still but it kept on turning.
same day, again, with everything closed, if felt chilly in the room. I was
dressed in a summer dress since it was during August. I paced to warm up and had
to stop because I felt like I was being held back. The next part was weird, I
felt like I stepped from the Antarctic tundra to the Hawaiian beaches all in one
breath. And felt if I leaned back an inch or two, I would have felt someone
standing there, and the air started to smell like some aftershave like the
ocean. Then to my amazement, I rushed towards the door and opened it in time to
see a whisk of smoke at eye level then disappear. There is no smoking allowed
within the mansion, and I again was the only one on the third floor.
don’t know if you will take me seriously, but that is all the truth and
happening over a two month period, and I still feel someone watching me all the
time within the mansion. I don’t care if you use this for your book. But I
want to make one thing clear, I do believe only when I can see it or if the
events are happening to me. If not then I don’t believe it. Only if I know the
resource is reliable; and there are multiple events to reoccur with several

Subject: Manresa Castle
I went to your website and saw all the haunting going on and thought I might
share some of mine. So this is how it happened
of 2003, Manresa Castle, Port Townsend, WA:
didn't answer, "Uhh, Katie? KATIE!"
I tried getting her attention and I finally did, "What is it?"
I asked again.
She said to me, "Look!". She showed me the book and I was devastated.
I didn't know what to think, Manresa Castle was in it.
the middle of the night, at precisely 2:45 AM, there was a knock at the door.
It was repeatedly knocking, until it stopped. My Dad, Sister, brother,
and Mom all didn't notice this. Only I did.
I was scared, I didn't get out of the bed all night.
few hours after the knocking, tumbling came from the attic! My whole family woke
up."What is that?" My brother asked.
have no clue," My sister had answered. I was terrified.
tumbling had stopped and I fell fast asleep. I think I must have fallen
asleep out of fear. In the morning, my dads shoe was on top of the
chandelier where my mom and I slept. Of course though, we still believe my
father did this.
2006 Manresa Castle update:
My sister says she recalls seeing a face in the window of room 306, facing out to sea in old 18th century clothes. From this day on, my sister and I still believe Manresa Castle is, and forever will be, Haunted.

have a good story about a house on 7th Ave Camas, but its long. Let me know if
you want to hear it.
the employees at the Camas Community Center have been swearing for years that
its haunted. They say they hear footsteps out in the halls when know one is
there, have the usual door and light problems, and on many occasions people have
heard the sound of a music box in the basement, although no music box has ever
been found and the basement has been completely cleaned out on several
occasions. There is some interesting memorabilia in the place, including a piano
that once belonged to a local, that was sold, and there rediscovered years later
on a cruise ship. The old owner was able to require the piano and donated it to
the community center. It's definitely a music box they hear though not a
piano--but the piano story is interesting.

My name is Brittney and I live
in Vancouver, WA. Here is my story; I hope you can help!
My boyfriend and I recently moved
into an old house that we are renting. Everything
was fine about the first week and a half. Then one night sitting in the front
room he saw a small shadow fly across the room and back into the hall. He was
convinced it was a ghost.
He told his buddy and had him sleep
over on our couch. Our buddy didn’t say he saw or heard anything but said he
defiantly wasn’t alone that night. Then last night (about a week after his
buddy came over) my boyfriend wasn’t feeling well in the middle of the night
and went to relax on the couch so he wouldn’t wake me. He says not five
minutes later he high tailed it back in the bedroom. He heard footsteps walking
then turning around and doors opening that were already open. He also saw a
shadow of a person in our 2nd bedroom.
I have not seen or heard anything.
The odd thing about the “person” being in the second bedroom is that my cat
always wants me to follow him in there, I always assume to play but he always
stops in the middle of the room and looks up at me like he wants me to see or
look at something. The cat doesn’t seem scared or freaked out in any part of
the house. One more thing about the house is that it seems to get cold pretty
often, not just one room but also the whole house. I thought it was just the old
furnace, but not after this. Is there any reason that I have not seen/heard/felt
any of this? Could it be a friendly ghost/spirit since my cat is not afraid? Any
insight at all would be very helpful. Thank youu
