Springs Cemetery Bladon Springs, Choctaw
County, Alabama, This case is both Staples's river
boat and his children's graves. Some believe that
the destruction of his beloved river boat was
by the ghosts own
doing. This was one of the most elegant boats
on the Alabama river's and it's maiden voyage
was is 1908. It was named after the father of
the ship's designer and the captain himself. Unfortunately
they lost their beloved ship in December 1912
because of the unfair practices by the larger
steamboat company in the area. Captain Staples
was completely distraught and on January 2, 1913
he held a shotgun to his chest and pulled the
trigger taking his own life. Shortly after he
was buried he shadowy figure began appearing to
the crew members of his ship. Eventually all these
men quit and had to be replaced by men that had
not heard of his ghost. Then there was a bad sign
when all of the ships rats jumped ship
and swam to shore. On January 13, 1913 (the same
hour that Staples had taken his own life) the
ship docked at Powe's Landing to take on cargo,
and the ship then exploded killing the new captain
and twenty-five crew members and passengers. Some
people were able to escape the explosion, the
boat then drifted downstream and sank right near
the shore of the Bladon Springs Cemetery where
he had been buried.
Since there is no more
boat for the captain to haunt he has been seen
hovering over the graves of his children, James,
Mabel, Bertha, and Norma.
His apparition seems to guard and protect the
graves of his children. He has also been seen
with his hands against his head like he is mourning
or regretting his decision to take his own life.
James Alfred Staples (Infant
Son of Norman and Dora Staples), died Dec. 13,
1903. Mabel Clare Staples, born Aug 6, 1899, died
July 6, 1900.
Bertha Jaquetta Staples born Mar 19, 1895, died
Oct 8, 1900. Norma A. Staples born July 19, 1896,
died Mar 14, 1973.

in the world, and No. # 1 haunted Cemetery in
all the United States. This New Orleans Haunted
graveyard is said to be haunted by the ghost of

- Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi
much of New Orleans is at, or below, sea level
that early settlers who buried their dead - and
there were many of them - found that during the
frequent flooding great waves of moldy coffins
would float to the surface of the sodden earth.
Eventually, graves began to be placed, Spanish-style,
in above-ground brick and stucco vaults, surrounded
by small fences. These cemeteries grew to resemble
cities, laid out in "streets"; today,
as the tombs crumble away amid the overgrown foliage,
they have become atmospheric in the extreme. The
creepiness isn't totally imaginary, either - though
armed muggers, rather than ghosts, are the danger
these days. You should never venture here alone.
Nearly all the city tours include a trip around
one of the graveyards; some specialize in them.
Cemetery No. 1 Washington
Ave and Prytania. Built in 1833, by 1852 - when
2000 yellow fever victims were buried here - the
Garden District cemetery was filled to capacity.
Today it is an eerie place, with many tombs sinking
into the ground, and some of them slowly opening
in the shadow of tangled trees. It's no surprise
that all this decaying grandeur should capture
the imagination of local author Anne Rice, who
has used the place in many of her books - she
even staged a mock funeral here, to launch publication
of Memnoch the Devil ; the corpse was herself,
wearing an antique wedding dress, in an open coffin
carried by pall bearers.

lives of those who have died. One of the Catholic

crisis of 1868. It is now a shrine, and Mass is
said there on Monday mornings.

is located at the bottom of the hill in the older
section of the cemetery near a creepy old tree.

times you will disappear. There are also stories

Come explore some of the
world's most haunted cemeteries. The World's Most
Haunted Cemetery may make you a real believer
in ghosts. Here is a collection of true ghost
stories from the world's most haunted Cemeteries.
This list will have some familiar names, and some
places you never expected to be haunted. Paranormal
activity is an really a very international affair,
and ghosts and apparitions intermingle with the
living everywhere day and night. When it comes
to the number and regularity of ghost sightings
and unexplained events, these real haunted Graveyards,
Cemeteries and burial spots can't be beat.
A cemetery is a place
in which dead bodies and cremated remains are
buried. The term cemetery in Greek meaning sleeping
place implies that the land is specifically designated
as a burying ground. Cemeteries in the Western
world are the place where the final ceremonies
of death are observed. These ceremonies or rites
differ according to cultural practice and religious
belief. Cemeteries are distinguished from other
burial grounds by their location; they are usually
not adjoined to a place of worship. A graveyard,
on the other hand, is located in a churchyard
(Scots language or Northern English language:
kirkyaird), although a churchyard can also be
any patch of land on church grounds.
Cemeteries in cities use
valuable urban space, which could become a problem,
especially in older cities. As historic cemeteries
begin to reach their capacity for full burials,
alternative memorialization, such as collective
memorials for cremated individuals, is becoming
more common. Different cultures have different
attitudes to destruction of cemeteries and use
of the land for construction. In some countries
it is considered normal to destroy the graves,
while in others the graves are traditionally respected
for a century or more. In many cases, after a
suitable period of time has elapsed, the headstones
are removed and the now former cemetery is converted
to a recreational park or construction site. A
more recent trend, particularly in South American
cities, involves constructing high-rise buildings
to house graves.
Taken from the "What
Ghost Hunter's Should Know" Chapter
Arrive early with your
necessary ghost hunting equipment and
give yourself plenty of time to set everything
up. Here is a quick list of some equipment
you may wish to use: a video camera, EMF
detectors, 35 mm cameras loaded with brand
new film and thermometers. Always remember
to bring along plenty of flashlights.
Don't forget to bring along some patience.
Conducting a ghost hunt is a lot like
fishing. You have to use patience.
Start by selecting a
private room or a general location for
a main base of operations. This base is
where all monitoring should be done. It
should not be an area where ghost activity
is high. After the base has been selected,
do a complete walkthrough of the general
area. Check out every room, and in graveyards,
walk around the tombstones in a 50-yard
radius. Videotape the walkthrough if you
are using video cameras. Make sure that
you know the layout before you begin the
ghost hunt. Get used to the location.
The ghost hunt will go much better if
everyone feels comfortable with the surroundings.
Use the EMF detectors
to search for anything out of the ordinary.
If you do pick up EMF distortions or if
you feel that there is an unearthly presence
nearby, take more photos. Just be aware
that in cemeteries smooth glossy tombstone
faces will reflect light from the flashlights
or the camera flash that could create
strange light patterns in the pictures.
Glass objects and mirrors will reflect
light inside houses.
During the initial walkthrough
or at any other time during the ghost
hunt, try not to unnecessarily touch or
move objects. You should leave the natural
environment alone. As you are doing the
walkthrough in haunted houses, hang up
ghost catchers in doorways, between rooms,
or on staircases. If a ghost passes near
the ghost catcher, they will chime alerting
anyone nearby. A lightweight wind chime
If there are objects
or pieces of furniture that have been
reported to move, put a chalk line or
sticker on the floor next to these objects.
That way, if the objects happen to move,
you have a marker to judge and measure
the exact distance.
in a ghost hunt should always know where
everyone else is to avoid confusion and
misinterpretations. Sometimes handheld
or headset radio communicators are good
devices to stay in contact with the other
ghost hunting members.
Always log every event
that seems out of the ordinary, (doors
that lock, electrical problems, swaying
chandeliers, strange lights, etc). Videotape
everything for proof.
You can attach glow-in-the-dark
or reflective tape to objects to help
you with the layout and to mark special
locations. The tape will make it much
easier to see dangerous objects in the
dark. You don't need to turn off the lights
inside of the haunted house to have ghosts
appear unless it is vital to the appearance
of that particular ghost. Even then, leave
some lights on for personal safety. Always
have a couple of mini spotlights ready
for outside ghost hunts in case something
happens and you need light fast.
Do not be afraid to
experiment on ghost hunts. Ask the ghosts
to appear. Put the video cameras on different
settings. Try the EVP audio taping methods.
Use anything that you think might have
an effect on the ghosts. If nothing seems
to be happening, you might try to shake
things up by playing religious or music
that would be familiar to the ghost.
On any ghost hunt, make
sure to have packed plenty of snacks,
drinks, and maybe a board game. Ghost
hunts can be long and tedious. You may
have to spend several weeks inside at
a haunted location before you experience
