Finished the video for Georgetown Cemetery, finally. Take special note of the back ground music. Ghosting 12 crew members did it on the Haunted Piano during the Locker Room Building investigation a few weeks ago. I loved it. Hope you like it, too.
The walk back to Lock #39 turned out to be quite an adventure. This walk is not one to take this late in spring because much of what you want to see is overgrown by nature, as you can tell. Several of the adventurers were also attacked by a plant called nettles. Bugs were everywhere. There were fallen trees in several places along the trail. And the heat was balmy.
But reaching Jake's Lock was so worth it! The beauty that surrounds this mysterious lock is well worth the considerable effort to get there. Some people just didn't make it. They turned around and went back. But many did and were rewarded with some great EVP at the lock and a good ghost box session too. Some of the answers we got included "call me Jake." and when we asked how he died, he said "lightening." two different times. We trudged through mud, rough terrain, water, high weeds, over fallen trees, and pretty much sweating our asses off, but any adventure is worth some sweat! This one sure was!

Subject: Re: Beaver Creek Tours
Thank you Mr. Metz. I appreciate that you took the time to send this. I have been trying since March to contact someone about it with no success and my busy season is here now so I had to do something. On May 8 when my first Gretchen's Tour was held, Park Rangers went down and locked the gates to the park an hour before it started. When that happened I assumed it was because I was having an event down there and didn't have any one's permission to do it. Only I couldn't get a hold of anyone to get it.
There is also some confusion as to the rules about being in the park after dark. I would like to post the correct information on my blog so there are no misunderstandings.
1. Do you have to have written permission to be in the park after dark?
2. As long as you do not drive your vehicle inside the park, but walk, you can go in anytime, no permission necessary? Is that true?
3. Does the written permission include The Pioneer Village area of Beaver Creek State Park as well?
There are a lot of people going down there on a nightly basis and any information I can get out there will help to keep the area safe and organized.
Thank you again for your time.

Now, here is his response.
You do have to have written permission for be in the park after hours.
If you park outside the gate, you are less likely to be asked to leave or have the chance of your vehicle being locked in.
The written permission does include the pioneer village.
Please keep this in mind: The rangers at anytime reserve the right to ask anyone to leave at anytime for any reason if they feel it necessary. This is even the case if you have the after hours form.

So, now you know.

G12 is having a blast on our midnight adventures. My friend Holly told me about a cemetery near her sister, Karena's house. She lives in Georgetown, Pa, very close to Hookstown. So, Friday night, after my CCFHV meeting, Amber, Brooke, Briana, and I went on another Midnight adventure. We were so glad we did!
Expect a video about it soon!

Because G12 has such a large tour schedule this year and our investigations have doubled, it became necessary to increase the size of our crew. Above left is Alex (far left) and Jen (green shirt) along with our Sammi and Will. At right is Becky.

It was quiet. It was calm. It was unnerving! Every sound coming from the woods was the witch coming for us! At one point, it sounded like some one running through the woods. In true Ghost Hunters fashion we charged toward the commotion and found nothing.
We used a night vision camera to take some pictures. Had fun with that. Pics turned out good, too.

In front of the truck, under the bridge, it is rumored that some one committed suicide a few years ago. We did a ghost box session here and some one said "They took my gun."
I look forward to getting my whole crew down here some Saturday this summer to explore and investigate this area further.
If you know any stories about old route 7, or Waterford Downs, or know anything about the tales I mentioned, please let me know.

Here are a few pics of the (supposed to be)Witches graves , here is a site that has not much about it , and has other haunted areas on there as well ..http://www.ohioexploration.com/columbianacounty.htm.. scroll down to New Springfield
..this is what it says ..German Witches Graves - Just off of Lipply Road, there's a hayfield with a clump of trees in the center. Three tombstones in this clump of trees are said to belong to witches. All three graves are written in German. Ghostly figures have been spotted in the trees, as well as the field. The three witches still haunt the area as well.
So, I am looking for stories about this area if anyone has any.

This is the third of 4 videos including results from our ghost box sessions. There will be more as I uncover more stories about Spring Grove Cemetery.
I have written about the Taylor Murders on here before. While that case is solved, the young girl with Wooten, the convicted murderer, was never found. Louise Davis remains missing to this day.

Amber ran across a ghost story about Birch Road. It runs from Rt 7 to Bell School Road. Apparently, on one of the bends in this road, if you stand there at midnight, you will be able to hear the thundering of a stagecoach. She was told this road was part of the stagecoach line that ran from Rogersville(now just Rogers) to East Liverpool. One late evening, the horses pulling the stagecoach were spooked and they ran off the road, causing the stagecoach to crash. The driver and both occupants were killed. Do they haunt the road? Is this something that might be residual in nature? This is one of the stories Ghosting 12 Paranormal hopes to investigate this summer.
If you have heard this story before or have any details to add or subtract, let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
The Carnival Girl was murdered in about 1942. She was strangled. Her body was found not long after death, wrapped in two cheap blankets, laying along an old road down on State Street, in the East End of East Liverpool. Her identity has never been discovered. She was buried in an unmarked grave in Spring Grove. Sadly, her killer was never found. Click on the link to get the results of our Ghost Box session done near her grave.

Amber, Brooke and I went to Spring Grove Cemtery a few nights ago. We explored the area in an attempt to prepare a tour for it. Only half of the cemetery is officially taken care of, through Liverpool Township. The other half, the front part, only gets attention when there are volunteers to do it.
One of the main things they need is to have the rest of the road running through it chip and sealed. To that end my crew and I are preparing a tour of Spring Grove filled with the history, lore and legend of East Liverpool and this cemetery. A cost is yet to be determined at this time, as is a date. Our goal is to help get the money necessary to finish the chip and seal job. The video is the first of 4 videos being made from our midnight adventure. Hope you like it.
