Intelligent Haunt in Ridge
by Michael Guerino
(Lindenhurst, Long Island)
I am a ghost person and always seem to have encounters. I was in a forgotten cemetery off of Whiskey Road that I knew as a child and always frequented. One night in May several years ago I was there alone and I was feeling the strange feeling that at any moment something was going to happen.
I was brave enough to ask if anyone was here and needed to contact me, the feeling got even more intense so I was getting unnerved and then as soon as I had asked that question a gravestone fell over.
This was an old burial and barely visible dates on it and it had fallen over literally at my feet! I was frozen and the urge to run was there! I did! I came back the next day and tried to read the stone, but couldn’t make it out.
A few years later I was checking cemetery records on the internet and found that one of the children buried there had died on my birthday, May 2nd, over a hundred years ago. I was never able to know if that was his stone or not, but I feel it was and this haunt responded to me.
One other time in the same cemetery I had asked for a sign and a wind gusted. No other wind but that one... that was weird but I think it is intelligent and not random.
