With the most ghostly encounters on a regular day to day basis Dash Beardsley certainly fills the bill as the most haunted man state wide in Texas. Galveston Island of course is one of the most haunted cities in America and only third to New Orleans and Gettysburg.
The Great Storm off 1900, actually this unnamed hurricane caused great loss of life and Texan property. The death toll has been estimated to be between numbers of 6,000 and 12,000 individuals, depending on whether one counts casualties from the city of Galveston itself, the larger island, or the region as a whole.
The number most cited in official reports is 8,000, giving the storm the third-highest number of casualties of any Atlantic storm or hurricane, after the Great Hurricane of 1780 and 1998’s Hurricane Mitch. The Galveston Hurricane of 1900 is to date the deadliest natural disaster ever to strike the United States. By contrast, the second-deadliest storm to strike the United States, the 1928 Okeechobee Hurricane, caused approximately 2,500 deaths, and the deadliest storm of recent times, Hurricane Katrina, has caused approximately 1,600 deaths.
Many are the tales of close encounters with what some believe to be the phantom fleet of Jean Lafitte; some claim to have seen the pirate himself standing at the helm of the lead vessel.
Workers on the oil platforms that dot the Gulf of Mexico claim to regularly spot a billow of sails on the horizon just before sunset, always heading east into the gloom. Crews of offshore supply vessels claim that in the middle watch they have heard the flapping of sail riggings and the cry of phantom voices, calling out in the Creole patois once spoken in Barataria commands to a ghostly crew. Small boats, it is said, have been almost swamped by the passage of the ghostly fleet that is said to produce visible white foam where the bows break the waves and a tremendous wake in the dark waters.
there are also many tales of the Galveston Voodoo Hoodoo queen, and of Campche Devil black dogs and the wandering dead souls looking for peace.
Yes, Galveston Island is one of the great Texas' crown Jewel. And certainly of all the most extreme haunted hotspots and a virtual haunted playground for real Ghost Hunters.
From Haunted hotels to private B&B's the are many howlerd out loud boast that, the most ghost per square inch Haunt Texas. And by visiting Galveston Island you certainly can find out for yourself first hand.

Dash is one of the most up and coming paranormal person of interest in the community today. He can often be heard playing a song or two along the Texas windswept coast. Or hunting for real ghosts in the actual streets of the largest haunted Island in the world.
Many people including myself believe that ghost become more accustomed and trusting to those that visit them on a daily basis. Recently I spoke at the Astir Para workshop in length on how ghost tend to come out more often when a ghost tour is in progress. And that the actual ghost will actually seek out a special tour guide and follow them.
I have personally met many guides across the world who often tell me they are be followed by a ghost or two. But in my personal assumption I believe that Dash Beardsley has a multitude of living and dead fans. Taking into account of how many people died right in the Strand district alone it is easy to assume that Dash is being personally followed by no less then 100 ghost at any given time. Many photos of Dash with tour guest often have interesting anomalous results. Especially when he tells you he feels them near.
Many ghost tours often boast the most haunted in their reputation. But I certainly will tell you this is the best in the south rivaling even those tours given in New Orleans. And I can personally tell you that from my own experiences.
I personally get many individuals coming up to me and telling me they know and how much they loved taking the tour of the island with him. And I to agree that this is the best I have taken in Texas and believe that other tours should take notice. If there is a right way or a wrong way to give a ghost tour by Das's example others should take notice.
