      I really enjoyed your Ghost Story!  It really brings back fond memories!!  I was a Member of the 364th Civil Affairs Army Reserve Unit on 19 March 1968.  In fact other than being a member of the Unit, I was the Personnel Staff NCO.  I worked as Full Time Civil Service for the Reserve Units at Sears Hall.  Many times myself and my Direct Supervisor Warren B and Harold V Hr heard the Ghosts walking above us on the 2nd Floor as well as them going into the 1st Floor Gym, the Armory and the adjacent Motor Pool!  Even when I was alone at times, I never felt Really Alone!!  I can't really remember the Invisible Occupants however, attending our Army Reserve Drills!!  Jeff, I really look forward in hearing from you!

Hi Jeff,

I had to drop you a quick line. I just got a call from my wife today and she works with a new nurse who moved into a house in Coupeville and she believes it's haunted. She is a single mother and I guess they've only been in the house a few weeks. They hear knocking, strange smells, doors closing. A psychic already visited and said even those the house is new construction, there was a tragic death on the property of a young man.  I'm hoping to get over there to visit.

You friend on Whidbey!

Hi Lieutenant  Davis,
My last recall of you was when I was NCOIC of MOUNT with the 104th Div Vancouver Barracks. I retired from USAR in 1996.  My wife and I now live in Hawaii.  A while back on TV there was a program about Ghosts and Vancouver Barracks.  Your name and picture came up.  Very impressive!
You were always one of the good guys.  I just wanted to say hello.
Tom O.


For those readers who are not familiar with military jargon, over a decade ago, I was a lieutenant in the Army Reserves, and I served with a unit that taught various military subjects.  Tom O. was the Non Commissioned Officer In Charge, the senior sergeant in charge of a team that taught Military Operations in Urban Terrain; which is a fancy term for house-to-house fighting.  And Tom was one of the good guys too!!!

Hi Jeff,
I've read over your site many times and think it's a wonderful site.  A link exchange would be great!  I am in a group called Pacific Northwest Paranormal Research Group located in Vancouver, Washington and have gone ahead and added your link to our site already - our url is: http://pacnwprs.webs.com (we are transferring from our old site, www.pnprs.com).
Thanks in advance!

SUBJECT:  Hi Jeff from Vaughn at NWPIA update

Hi Jeff,

I just wanted to give you a quick update as to what I have been doing lately. I am starting a new group of paranormal investigators called PIHA (Paranormal Investigations of Historic America) and show it as a "Subsidiary" of NWPIA. I will still be involved with NWPIA and continue to get new investigations for NWPIA. I will just be wearing two hats for awhile.

 The reason for PIHA is simple. I only want to concentrate on museums and registered historical sites (businesses, private homes, cemeteries, etc.)  and not be involved with all of the other places that NWPIA investigates as well. Also, I only want a small group of well qualified paranormal investigators (six maximum). With the relationship that I have developed with our NWPIA clients, I probably have about six months of booked investigations to accomplish.

 I have also created a website for PIHA (www.pihausa.com ) that you can now view online. I have added links to your website on the main Washington State webpage (bottom of page) and also a reference to your books and website on every "Town" page on my new site. Please let me know if this is acceptable to you and I have your permission to add your books and website link (http://www.ghostsandcritters.com/ )to the PIHA website. In the future, I want to get more investigations of the places that you have written about in your books.

 Well Jeff, that's the latest news on my end. When you have a few extra minutes, take a look at my new PIHA website and let me know what you think. Any comments or suggestions from you would be greatly appreciated. Also, let me know if I have your permission to reference your website and books on the PIHA website.

 Thanks Jeff,    Vaughn

SUBJECT:  Haunted

Hello Jeff ~

 Iím very interested in the Paranormal, especially Ghosts.  I was wondering if you are aware of any haunted establishments in the Gresham, Troutdale area other then McMennimans?

 After all, Halloween is a on a Saturday night this year, and some of us adults need something to talk about??

 Your help would be appreciated!
 Rachel M


My response to Rachel

HI Rachel,
Thanks for emailing me.  Sorry I have taken so long to respond.  It's been a busy week or two for me.  I'm guessing you are looking for>  some haunts that you can visit without being arrested for trespassing?

Iím including a couple of links that may help you find a place or two:


Sorry I could not get any more specific or have some first hand accounts, other than searching through my Other People's Ghosts section.  Gresham seems to be content being a suburb in more than one way.  Please let me knwo if you find anything.

Good luck,

Jeff ~

Thank you for your recent email and links.  I've seen ghostsofamerica, but not ghosts.meetup!!

I appreciate the link!  Let me know if you would like to be in on what we're doing for Halloween (adults only). Other then that, thanks million.

Jeff ~

I forgot to mention, I've located a haunted barn, and nearby a house that has burned down.  All that is left is the foundation and ghost by the name of Laura!  Just took the kiddies to Depot Bay and Lincoln City. I found 2 haunted places in each town.  One is a restaurant in Depot Bay and the other is a old dance hall in Lincoln City.

Hope I hear from you again!


Jeff ~

Yes, it is the Spouting Horn in Depot Bay.  The girls and I stopped in and spoke to them.  I learned of it through the Internet.  The place in Lincoln City is an old dance hall now an Antique Mall.  I'm sorry, I don't remember the name.

In addition on the Internet, I discovered the Oar House a B & B in Newport.  I had a difficult time finding this place.  Do you have a website about the tours you give!  New York should be great fun,  I'm sure.  I believe the meet up group is accepting new members.

I look forward to hearing from you again.
