THE TOP TEN MOST VERY BEST MOST HAUNTED GHOST TOURS AND HAUNTS AND UFO HOTSPOTS BIGFOOT AND EL CHUPACABRA AND PEOPLE IN TEXAS

 

haunted Texas flag

Restless spirits of the Old West, cowboys, Native Americans, cattle rustlers, pioneers and patriots -- these are just a few of the Lone Star spirits that haunt the dusty roads and old trails of Haunted Texas.

Quick Real Texas Ghost Facts and Hauntings:

Texas Paranormal Research is not as wide spread as one might believe. The City of Dallas only offers Paranormal type or ghost tours during the Halloween season.

Lone Star State Bigfoot and El chupacabra hunting ranks as the most active in any state in America.

"Galveston Island, Texas is The Ghost Capital City Of Texas!"

Marshall, Texas is the second most Haunted city in Texas!

Texas boasts the most hitchhiking ghost of all the States in America.

Jefferson City has the most Haunted House in the State!

Denton, Texas is the Home to a the most Famous haunted Crybaby Bridge.

Texas (en-us-Texas.ogg /ˈtɛksəs/ (help·info)) is the second largest U.S. state in both area and population, and the largest state in the contiguous United States. Located in the South Central United States, Texas is bordered by Mexico to the south, New Mexico to the west, Oklahoma to the north, Arkansas to the northeast, and Louisiana to the east. Texas has an area of 268,820 square miles (696,200 km2), and a growing population of 24.6 million residents. Houston is the largest city in Texas and the fourth-largest in the United States, while Dallas–Fort Worth and Houston are the 4th and 6th largest United States metropolitan areas. Other major cities include San Antonio, El Paso, and Austin—the state capital. Texas is nicknamed the Lone Star State to signify Texas as an independent republic and as a reminder of the state's struggle for independence from Mexico. The "Lone Star" can be found on the Texas State Flag and on the Texas State Seal today.

By Marc Mijnwoord

The state of Texas is a real hotbed of paranormal occurrences and supernatural activity. UFO sightings and encounters with strange and reported real captures. Documentation of thses cryptids's like the El chupacabra and numerous Bigfoot sightings.

The seal of the great state of haunted Texas.

Ghostly missions and frontier churches and the famous Alamo are just a hint of what lies within the borders of the Lone Star State.

The Alamo, where Texas patriots valiantly defended their independence and freedom until they were overcome by the superior forces of Mexican General Santa Anna, is today one of the most visited locales in all of Texas.

Numerous reports of sightings of patriot defenders and Mexican soldiers have surfaced over the years, and more and more photos are being submitted with anomalies that are hard to be explained away as anything but evidence that the Alamo is the Most Haunted Destination in all of Texas.

According to local legend the visitors' center at Monahan's Sandhills State Park is built on the sight of an eighteenth-century Comanche burial ground. The haunted Visitor's Center has sent a chill down the spine of many tourists and locals alike. Visitor's Center Ghost Photos show many spirits still lingering around the burial grounds. Could this be the remnant souls of long dead Native Americans, trapped between the worlds?

Galveston, on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, was founded by the Louisiana Pirate Jean Lafitte, or so the story goes. As one of the most distant sites of his far-flung buccaneer territory, Galveston is said to still be haunted by the spirit of Lafitte and his pirate crews. Sightings of a ghostly frigate, possibly Lafitte's famous "Barataria Bay," are still reported today, complete with the calls of the crew as they hoist the ghostly sails. Others have seen Lafitte himself, or so they say, walking the streets of the oldest parts of Galveston, and members of the ghostly pirate crew have also been sighted, only to disappear as they approach.

With fierce wind and torrential rains, hurricanes have pounded the Texas coast for centuries. With great loss of life and property, native Texans have withstood the natural onslaughts as best they can. But not without sacrifice. It is said that sometimes the mournful cries of those lost in the great hurricane floods can still be heard on especially stormy nights, from Corpus Christi to Galveston, the reports continue to come in.

Ghosts of Civil War soldiers still reenact the last battles of their lives in remote places all across the Lone Star State. The last casualty of the entire war was a Texan, fighting as the patriots before him to keep the Northern "invaders" from his lands. Some say his ghost is not alone among the graves and brush fields of the lonesome Texas battlefields.

The ghosts of great Cattlemen still ride the fences and borders of the ranges they protected in life. Pioneers on their way to better fortunes in the gold rush cities of Arizona and California, who sometimes never made it and were buried in shallow graves beside the road, still haunt the lonely overgrown paths of the Texas "outback." One touching legend, of a six year old girl who succumbed to scarlet fever on the wagon train road and who was buried in a remote location with a makeshift cross and crude stones to cover her -- it is said that her forlorn ghost still haunts the road in search of the wagons now long gone that left her behind.

Many people still insist that riders of the Pony Express still gallop wildly past them as they camp in the deep Texas night. One lonely rancher reports that a ghostly entity still repairs the fences of his property that line the old Pony Express road.

You might just want to join in a sacred indian Ghost Dance and see for yourself the spirits manifesting in the Native American ritual, just as they have for the Ancestors before.

Or you might relax and watch that special Texas sunset with a cold Lone Star beer in your hand and ponder the ghosts that might be sitting next to you.

1. GALVESTON ISLAND, TEXAS

"Galveston Island, Texas is The Ghost Capital City Of Texas!"

"THE MOST HAUNTED ISLAND AND CITY IN TEXAS"

If ever a city in any state has as many ghost and reported as real sightings of strange cryptids beings ghosts and paranormal activity it is the island of Galveston, Texas. Ravaged by the great storm of 1900 and in recent years by Hurricane Ike. The great storm made landfall on Galveston Island in the early morning of September 13, 2008 as a Category 2 hurricane with winds of 110 miles per hour. Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff said the previous day that the hurricane might cause "catastrophic effects" and "threaten the lives and safety of citizens along the Texas coast and the western part of Louisiana". Ike produced waves and a rising storm surge of about 14 feet, which went around the famous Galveston Seawall, flooding the city via the storm sewers, and the unprotected "bay side" of the island, before the first winds or drop of rain. While most residents evacuated the island prior to the storm, many decided to stay. The flooding caused by the storm surge caused many to change their minds, and an attempt was made by the Coast Guard and local officials to rescue hundreds of persons trapped on the island. The storm left Galveston without electricity, gas, water pressure and basic communications. The island has since re-established services and the population has returned but some great damage still remains.

Discussions are currently under way to build a so-called Ike Dike which would protect Galveston and the bay. As of 2009 the project is still in the conceptual stage and no funding has been allocated.

Since the 2008 Ike storm the ghost and many reported paranormal activities has not ceased many report more spooky goings on, and even new sightings of shadow people demonic entities and beings from beyond the grave as well as major sighing's and UFO activity.

Many call the haunted island a Paranormal Investigators paradise. The city boasts the most haunted Hotels, Buildings, B&B's, restaurants and city streets. This is haunted Texas town also has the most haunted Cemeteries to be found. And is home to one of the most Dangerous reported Devil' Chairs to be found.

Galveston island was originally inhabited by members of the Karankawa and Akokisa tribes, who used the name "Auia" for the island. The Spanish explorer Cabeza de Vaca and his crew were shipwrecked on the island (or nearby) in November 1528, calling it "Isla de Malhado" ("Isle of Doom"), and there began his famous trek to Mexico.

During his charting of the Gulf Coast in 1785, the Spanish explorer José de Evia named the island Gálvez-town or Gálveztown in honor of Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid, Count of Gálvez. The first permanent European settlements on the island were constructed around 1816 by the pirate Louis-Michel Aury as a base of operations to support Mexico's rebellion against Spain. In 1817 Aury returned from an unsuccessful raid against Spain to find Galveston occupied by the pirate Jean Lafitte, who took up residence there after having been driven from his stronghold in Barataria Bay off the coast of New Orleans, Louisiana. Lafitte organized Galveston into a pirate "kingdom" he called "Campeachy" (or "Campeche"), anointing himself the island's "head of government." Lafitte remained in Galveston until 1821 when he and his raiders were given an ultimatum by the United States Navy: leave or be destroyed. Lafitte burned his settlement to the ground and sailed under cover of night for parts unknown. There are still rumors that Lafitte's treasure is buried somewhere between Galveston Island, Bolivar Peninsula and High Island.

The pirate King and his ghostly fleet or said to still haunt the bay to this day as well as the ruins of his house. Many old tales tell of how he brought real voodoo hoodoo to the island as well as tales of Zombies and black supernatural dogs from hell that guarded his vast hidden treasures.

Following its successful revolution from Spain, the Congress of Mexico issued a proclamation on October 17, 1825, establishing the Port of Galveston, and in 1830 erected a customs house. During the Texas Revolution, Galveston served as the main port for the Texas navy. Galveston also served as the capital of the Republic of Texas when in 1836 interim president David G. Burnet relocated his government there. In 1836, Michel B. Menard, a native of Canada, along with several associates purchased 4,605 acres (18.64 km²) of land for $50,000 from the Austin Colony to found the town that would become the modern city of Galveston. Menard and his associates began selling plots on April 20, 1838. In 1839, the City of Galveston adopted a charter and was incorporated by the Congress of the Republic of Texas.

The Battle of Galveston was fought in Galveston Bay and on the island on January 1, 1863, during the American Civil War when Confederate forces under Major General John B. Magruder attacked and expelled occupying Union troops from the city, which remained in Confederate hands for the duration of the war. In May 1865, the Lark successfully evaded the Union blockade off of Galveston Harbor and headed for Havana, becoming the final Confederate ship to slip through the blockade from any Southern port. In the late 1890s, the Fort Crockett defenses and coastal artillery batteries were constructed in Galveston and along the Bolivar Roads.

Juneteenth, which is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States, owes its origins to the announcement of the Emancipation Proclamation upon the return of Union forces to Galveston in 1865.

In 1900, the island was struck by a devastating hurricane. Even post-Hurricane Katrina, this event holds the record as the United States' deadliest natural disaster.

In the early morning of September 8, high surf despite prevailing winds out of the north heralded the oncoming storm. By noon low-lying areas near the Gulf and the Bay side of the city were taking on water and the winds increased. Near 4 p.m. a storm surge approximately 15 feet (5 m) high slammed into the coast. According to many personal accounts, the storm subsided before midnight. Wind speeds reached up to 125 mph (an estimate, since the anemometer was blown off the U.S. Weather Bureau building). Isaac Cline was the bureau's chief meteorologist. An account of the events surrounding the hurricane based on his personal records is given in Isaac's Storm by Erik Larson. The city was devastated, and an estimated 6,000 to 8,000 people on the island were killed.

After the storm cleared, the city decided to shore up its defenses against future storms: a permanent concrete seawall was built along a large portion of the beach front (1902–1904) and the entire grade of the city was raised some 17 feet (5 m) behind the wall to a few feet near the Bay (1904–1910). Just after the hurricane, the city originated the City Commission form of city government (which became known as the "Galveston Plan"), although the city has since adopted the Council-Manager form of government.

Many EVP's, Ghost Photos and anomalous documentation and occurrences happen on the Strand. The Strand Historic District, also known as the Strand District, in downtown Galveston, Texas (USA), is a National Historic Landmark District of mainly Victorian era buildings that now house restaurants, antique stores, and curio shops. The area is a major tourist attraction for the island city and also plays host to two very popular seasonal festivals. It is widely considered the island's shopping and entertainment center.

The street labeled "The Strand" is actually named Avenue B, which runs parallel to Galveston Bay.

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and further declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976.

Today "the Strand" is generally used to refer to the entire five-block business district between 20th and 25th streets in downtown Galveston, very close to the city's wharf. The Strand's very earliest buildings were typically wooden and vulnerable to fires and storms that hit the island frequently throughout the 19th century. Eventually those structures were replaced with iron-fronted brick buildings. The two oldest buildings still standing on the Strand date to 1855 and 1858; other historic buildings date back typically to the 1870s and 1880s.

Throughout the 19th century, the port city of Galveston boomed; and the Strand, which is very close to the harbor, grew into the region's main business center. For a time, it was known as the "Wall Street of the Southwest."

Because of the port of Galveston's enormous vessel traffic (between 700 and 1,400 vessels annually), the Strand became a popular place for major businesses to locate, including the state's five largest banks at the time, wholesalers, commission merchants, cotton brokers, attorneys and slave auctioneers. In 1881, businesses in the Strand district sold about US$38 million worth of merchandise and services. Between 1838 and 1842, 18 newspapers were started; The Galveston News, founded in 1842, is the lone survivor.

Because of the Strand's close proximity to Galveston's harbor, the area suffered some damage during several battles during the Civil War, particularly when Union forces barricaded the city. During the Battle of Galveston, Confederate forces fought from every corner of the area; several buildings suffered damage from shots and shelling. The battles forced many businesses to close and move to nearby Houston until the war's end. But most moved back into their regular quarters and enjoyed prosperity until the turn of the next century.

The Galveston hurricane of 1900 was devastating to much of the city, and the Strand district was no exception. Many of its buildings suffered catastrophic damage — some buildings lost entire floors, others lost elaborate cornices and flourishes. Many businesses elected to move away from the wharf and, by default, away from the Strand. The area became a warehouse district, and was not revived until the 1960s when the Junior League of Galveston County restored two buildings.

That restoration effort sparked a revitalization project that is still ongoing. In 1973 the Galveston Historical Foundation followed suit, creating a trust fund for dramatic restorations of the Strand district that has sparked significant private investment as well.

Today the Strand features shops, historical exhibits, museums, art galleries and many restaurants and night clubs. It is also the location of a very popular annual Mardi Gras celebration, as well as a Christmas festival known as Dickens on the Strand, which celebrates the city's Victorian heritage with actors roaming the streets of the Strand in period dress. It is also host to Bike Rally Week each year. And don't forget the real reason to visit Galveston the Best Ghost tour In the State.

Attractions within the area include The Galveston County Museum, the Galveston Railroad Museum, Victorian architecture, horse and carriage rides, historical markers, an old fashioned trolley for transportation, and a giant chess set in Saengerfest Park. The historic district also contains a variety of retailers, including clothing, factory outlets, souvenir shops, art galleries, antique galleries. Galveston Old Time Photos 2319A Strand Costume Portiats is said to be a real hotspot of paranormal activity.

On the outer edges of the Strand is the Post Office district, known for its antique and art galleries and the Grand 1894 Opera House. ( Dash Beardsley's Gangsta` Ghost Tour has all the info !) Closer to the water is Pier 21, which has daily showings of the movie The Great Storm of 1900, the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig & Museum, and the Texas Seaport Museum with tall ship Elissa. The Olympia Grill is where the ghost great galleaon pirate ships are often seen. And this particular restaurant is the most haunted in the state of Texas.

The Strand sustained significant and catastrophic damage from the storm surge of Hurricane Ike on September 13, 2008 prompting the National Trust for Historic Preservation to add the district to the 2009 list of America's Most Endangered Places

3. The Grove Haunted Ghost Tour

"The Most Haunted House In the State Of Texas!"

A Guided Tour through one of the historical - and haunted - homes from Jefferson, Texas's past...

Tour Information:
The Grove
405 Moseley St.
Jefferson, Texas
903.665.8018

Please call for tour time and information.

Admission: $6.00

No children under 8 years of age, please.

One of the things about The Grove is that it has a reputation for being haunted. The ghost stories go back through many owners - Miss Louise Young, who lived in the house from the early 1900s until her death in the 1980s used to tell her friends about the "haints" that occupied the house with her. Somewhere along the way, though, the fun little ghost stories took a dark turn. In her later years, she was terrified of the spirits. She had a security light installed in the garden because she would see people outside walking around, who disappeared when she turned on the porch light. She called the police several times a week in her later years to report that someone was in the house with her, but the officers never found anyone else there. Finally, she moved into just a few rooms of the house, letting the rest of the place start to deteriorate.

Long before then, back in 1882, The Grove was sold to a man named T.C. Burke. He moved his family in, and they moved right back out, with the only explanation being that, "They couldn't live in that house!"

3. The Marfa Lights

The strange Marfa ghost lights are unexplained lights (known as "ghost lights") usually seen near U.S. Route 67 on Mitchell Flat east of Marfa, Texas, in the United States. Less frequent accounts of seemingly similar anomalous nocturnal lights have arisen along a broad and elongated region within west Texas, stretching generally from El Paso southeastward along the Rio Grande Valley, past Big Bend National Park and farther southeastward into Mexico.

 

The first published account of the lights was written in 1957, and this article is the sole source for anecdotal claims that the lights date back to the 1800s. Reports often describe brightly glowing basketball sized spheres floating above the ground, or sometimes high in the air. Colors are usually described as white, yellow, orange or red, but green and blue are sometimes reported. The balls are said to hover at about shoulder height, or to move laterally at low speeds, or sometimes to shoot around rapidly in any direction. They often appear in pairs or groups, according to reports, to divide into pairs or merge together, to disappear and reappear, and sometimes to move in seemingly regular patterns. Their sizes are typically said to resemble soccer balls or basketballs.

Sightings are reported occasionally and unpredictably, perhaps ten to twenty times a year. There are no reliable reports of daytime sightings; the lights seem to be a nocturnal phenomenon only.

According to the people who claim to have seen the lights, they may appear at any time of night, typically south of U.S. Route 90 and U.S. Route 67, five to fifteen miles east of Marfa, at unpredictable directions and apparent distances. They can persist from a fraction of a second to several hours. There is evidently no connection between appearances of the Marfa lights and anything else besides nighttime hours. They appear in all seasons of the year and in any weather, seemingly uninfluenced by such factors. They sometimes have been observed during late dusk and early dawn, when the landscape is dimly illuminated.

It is extremely difficult to approach an ongoing display of the Marfa lights, mainly due to the dangerous terrain of Mitchell Flat. Also, all of the land where the Marfa Lights are observed is private property, and access is prohibited without explicit permission from the owners. There are only a very few accounts of success in moving very close to observed lights, but those that exist generally describe objects resembling fireworks lacking both smoke and sound.

4. THE CHUPACABRA'S OF TEXAS

"CHUPACABRA THE REAL HOUNDS OF HELL ROAM TEXAS!"

The Chupacabra or Chupacabra's (pronunciation: /tʃupa'kabɾa/, from the Spanish words chupar, meaning "to suck", and cabra, meaning "goat"; literally "goat sucker"), also called El Chupacabras in Spanish, is a legendary cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of the Americas. It is associated more recently with sightings of an allegedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico (where these sightings were first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter's Latin American communities. The name comes from the animal's reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. Physical descriptions of the creature vary. From alien like with large red eyes, to that of dog or coyote like creatures. Recent discoveries s in Texas points them being hybrid creatures part canine part wolf or wild dog species.

Some will tell you they are just mangy coyotes. Others think they are a strange cross between something wild and something once domestic. Though the Texas Chupacabra legend just might related to the old Galveston Campeche Hounds of Hell.

Much has been debated in recent years to the authenticity of El Chupacabra images. From actual fakes frauds and hoax's.

EL CHUPACABRA

Perro Negro...The True Evil Hounds of Hell

chupacabra the devils hell  hound

 

THE VOODOO DOGS

A pack of supernatural black dogs is said to roam the hurricane swept Island of Galveston, Texas since the Great Storm of 1900 or possibly earlier. Legend has it that twelve black puppies were adopted by a downtown business owner when their mongrel (Coyote or prairie wolf, small, swift wolf, Canis latrans, native to W North America), mother was killed. For over a century, inhabitants of West Galveston Island have told tales of these large black hellhounds with malevolent flaming eyes (or in some variants of the legend a single eye) that are red or alternatively yellow. They vary in size and stature from that of simply a large dog to being the size of a small horse.

But the Black Pack also are known to be benevolent at times and bring warnings of disasters. Many say they saw them in the days before the great storm of 1900. These dog like chupacabra like creatures are said to be so evil that that they only listen to the commands of the Devil himself. Some stories state that death comes quick if you see a Black Dog in Texas. And death will fall days, months, or years after viewing the demonic beasts. Others say that death may not follow at all, but something "bad" will happen to someone close to those who set eyes on the twelve ghost hounds.

The Black Dog of nearby Clear Lake, TX does not take the guise of a large, fearsome hound. Instead, it appears as a small, sad black dog. The Black Dog of San Leon leaves droppings with human fingers poking out of it. It also appears to enjoy human company, sometimes and has been known to protect lost children rom great danger. Seeing the small Black Dog of San Leon once is supposedly a sign of good luck to come, twice brings a life of long suffering bad luck And you will not have heirs. And in your cursed life you see him a third time it means instant death.

Galveston Devil Dogs: Please read more here now! http://www.hauntedamericatours.com/ghoststories/GALVESTON.php

The Devil Dogs are said to possess great evil magical supernatural powers that defy explanation. If your on Galveston Island be aware of the shadows day and night. For you might be followed by the dogs of Campeche where ever you go.

The dogs are more then able to become just shadows and are said to follow anyone that might have strange or covert intentions. Many locals will tell you they will closely follow any stranger on the Island until they leave. low growls are often heard when one is near and the smell of wet dog is experienced.

The black dogs are known to breath heavily on the necks of those that have no good on their minds. One recent tale tells of a tourist that said she was chased back to her hotel by a large black beast. but she tells that she thinks the Campeche Ghost Dog was just trying to get her out of harms way. These Supernatural dogs are said to try to protect the innocent and the intended victims of unscrupulous people also.

Lafitte respected children and woman and the feeble minded. It is said that he commanded his dogs not to harm those that could not protect themselves. Many in these parts of Texas believe that the el chupacabra are part of some voodoo ritual of zombification. The practice of making zombie pets and livestock dates back in the United States to the voodoo queen Marie Laveau of New Orleans and her Marshall, Texas counterpart Mama Black' Cat Couteaux.

The name of Campeche comes from the Mayan word "Ah Kim Pech", which means "The Place of Boa Serpent".

These Black Hellhound Devil Dogs are also said to haunt New Orleans, Barataria and anywhere Lafitte set foot in his lifetime. Some say the shadows of these dogs can be seen in the waves that crash ashore along the gulf of Mexico.

Mujeres Island (Isla Mujeres) near Cancun. Isla Mujeres is the name of a small island, as well as the town on that island, a short distance off the coast of the northeast of the Yucatán Peninsula in the Caribbean Sea.

Eyewitness sightings have been claimed as early as 1990 in Puerto Rico, and have since been reported as far north as Maine, and as far south as Chile. It is supposedly a heavy creature, the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail. Biologists and wildlife management officials view the Chupacabra as a contemporary legend. Excerpts from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chupacabra

Many tales of the blood sucking beast have been told in Latin America and in the Southern parts of United States. Many wonder if these night creatures or living in other areas of world, and they just have not been reported yet. Some actually believe that they are large part of the many Vampire myths.

The creatures or thought to be mostly nocturnal by many accounts only attacking it's prey at night. They seem to feed on small animals including family pets and livestock. Although there are accounts of late of Horses and cattle showing signs of attacks resembling the goat suckers M. O..

From all that I have gathered on the creature it seems that it is more then just dangerous to animals it has also been reported to attack people of all ages. though descriptions are often sketchy or reported as hoax's.

6. The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy

"The Best Bigfoot Research In Texas!"

and

"The best Bigfoot Conference in The state Of Texas!"

 

The organization had its genesis on May 30, 1994, when Craig Woolheater and his fiancee saw a very large, hair-covered, bipedal creature while driving on an unlit two-lane highway between New Orleans and Alexandria, Louisiana. He began researching the bigfoot/sasquatch subject intensely, joined several related Internet discussion groups, and then co-founded the Texas Bigfoot Research Center in 1999. The group was active in pursuing field investigations and evidence collection, and regularly conducted public informational meetings all around Texas.

Texas Bigfoot

BIGFOOT LATEST NEWS UPDATES

Updated As More News Is Released World Wide

http://www.forteanswest.com/images/txbfconference-2009.jpg

Since its beginnings a decade ago as the Texas Bigfoot Research Center, the TBRC has grown and developed in some terrific ways. The organization takes a hard-eyed look at the Sasquatch phenomenon and has established a no-nonsense reputation that has facilitated our ability to establish working relationships with institutions and agencies. Among our various activities, the Texas Bigfoot Conference represents the TBRC’s primary educational outreach endeavor. It is open to the public and involves bringing in scholarly speakers considered among the most knowledgeable in the field. By the way, the only thing ever intended by including “Texas” in the name was to indicate location, not that everything discussed would pertain to this part of the country.


In the fall of 2001, Woolheater and the TBRC decided to organize and host a yearly bigfoot conference in Jefferson, Texas. Wildlife biologist Dr. John Bindernagel headlined the inaugural affair, and the event was immediately established as the preeminent bigfoot conference in the United States. At the 2005 conference, the City of Jefferson proclaimed the third weekend in October as "Texas Bigfoot Weekend" and awarded Woolheater with a framed proclamation and the key to the city. In December 2006 Woolheater and group leaders announced plans to reform as a non-profit tax-exempt entity. The new organization, the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy, was officially incorporated in January 2007.

With a diverse, dedicated, professional, and talented roster of approximately fifty members, including biologists, and other professionals, the TBRC pursues education and research activities pertaining to the centuries-old “wildman” or “hairy man” phenomenon in North America. The TBRC proposes that the source of the phenomenon is a biological entity, probably an unlisted large primate. The organization is actively engaged in activities designed to test that hypothesis.
The all-volunteer non-profit TBRC is funded by membership dues, fundraisers, and the annual Texas Bigfoot Conference, in addition to donations and grants. The TBRC uses all income to proactively pursue its mission statement; none of the budget, or contributions above the budget, is used for member salaries or labor compensation, member travel or meal expenses, etc.

The TBRC desires to enhance the credibility of bigfoot/sasquatch research and facilitate a greater degree of acceptance by the scientific community and other segments of society of the likelihood of a biological basis behind the sasquatch phenomenon.

Membership

Men and women considering working with the TBRC are invited to check out the Join the Team page. Needless to say, it is helpful if applicants live within the four state area of emphasis.

Attendance at one of the bi-monthly meetings, held in different locales and open to the public, provide an important opportunity for the curious or interested to learn more about the TBRC and for leaders of the organization to meet potential members. Our protocols require that we meet potential members before applications can be accepted.

The TBRC uses a tiered membership approach. Anyone can apply for probationary membership. Annual dues are $60. Probationary members have access to a private discussion forum where information is shared, questions can be asked, and relationships can be forged. Research opportunities may be offered to probationary members, depending on region of residence and background, training, knowledge, interests, etc. All members are encouraged to attend at least one of the bi-monthly meetings per year as well as the annual conference held in Jefferson, Texas. In addition, probationary members are required to attend at least one of the quarterly TBRC training camps, held in different locales.

Depending on level of involvement and other considerations addressed annually by the Board of Directors, probationary members may be assigned to field investigator status after a minimum of six months. Investigators have access to a different discussion board as well as the raw sighting reports database, where all sighting reports are stored, published or not. Investigators are responsible for assessing reports and conducting on-site visits, when appropriate. Following a tenure period of three years of involvement as an investigator, members qualify for voting rights regarding organizational issues brought up during the annual business meeting, including selecting the Board of Directors.

8. Texas Devil's Benches and Death Seats

"THE REAL DEVIL CHAIRS"

There are many stories of what and how a Devil Chair must be approached. Lisa Lee Harp Waugh studied many of these cemetery oddities over the years and has related to me many of the do's and don't that she has collected over the years.

Ten Reasons Not To sit in a Devil's Chair

by Lisa Lee Harp Waugh

From what I have gathered over many years of personal research into Devil chairs I have collected all the myths and urban legends I could find from around the world and here or my top ten.

1. Never let a single drop of your blood fall upon it. To do so means that the Devil can and will drag your soul to hell when he wants.

2. Never sit upon a Devil chair for it can cause you to become emotional and mentally incompetent in the blink of an eye. Stories tell of people sitting on such chairs and being struck dead or robed of all their mental faculties.

3. Never defy a Devil Chair or cuss the Devil to appear. Old tales say he will come to you in a short time after and collect your soul. Your body will then be possessed by a demon or a ghost that will murder your family one by one.

4. Never sit a infant or small child, Mentally challenged individuals, elderly or sick family member on a bench or chair in a cemetery. To do this they will become possessed by the dead in a short time. Or live a forever a very cursed life.

5. No woman should ever sit on a Devil chair if she is having a menstrual cycle. Blood is supposedly in any form should not to touch or come near such a chair. To do so spells danger and great loss of all you love and hold dear.

6. Pregnant woman should never sit in a Devil's Chair because their child will be either one of the devil's disciples when they grow or forever cursed. It is said by in hushed tones that the Mother of a serial killer once sat upon a Devil Bench. And this explains his demonic behaviors.

7. What ever you do never have sexual relations of any type on top of a Devil's chair. The child you might conceive might just the Anti- Christ incarnate. One should also not change a baby, or put electronic equipment on top because the person will be hurt by that item in the future either physically or their reputation! Never defecate on the Devil's Chair. If you see a woman sitting upon a Devil's chair then you know they are his concubines. And she will surely lure your ass to hell!

8. Young men should never sit on a Devil chair for any reason. If an under aged male sits on such a devil Chair they will die before they reach 21 years of age.

9. If you sit on a Devil chair and Mock the Devil you will die with in 7 days. A deep depression immediately will take you over. Many people have been found dead after committing suicide in such Devil chairs around the world.

10. To sit in the Devil's Chair on a dare will not curse the person who does but it will curse the person who dares them. And most of all never have your photo taken while sitting in the Devil's Chair to do so means it will be the last photo of you ever taken.

Texas Devil Chairs

In a city on the bay in Galveston, Texas there is the most evil of Devil Chairs to found in any state. To sit in this chair brings great horror to the person who does so. If you sit upon it you will watch all the member of your family die a horrible death or so the story goes. You might want to ask the Famous Ghost Man of Galveston Texas Dash Beardsley his take on this tale. He might have more to say then you could imagine.

The Devil Chair in San Antonio is said to be the twin chair to the one in Sacramento, California. To sit upon either of these concrete benches is a very disturbing adventure. First you will feel your legs grow tingly. You then will feel your butt starting to hurt then you begin to become weak. If someone does not pull you from the bench in the next few seconds they say you will be dragged to hell alive.

The Devil's seat in Marshall, Texas is said to be a very strange spot in deed. This the most horrific of all Devil Chairs in the great state of Texas, it is supposed to hold many secret powers. If two lovers sit upon it and a one ask the other to marry them. Then they will have a marriage that lasts to the day they die.

A Cemetery known as Colonial Park on "Elysian Fields" Highway in Marshall,Texas has a real nasty Devil's chair that one should avoid at all costs. they say if you want trouble don't even mention that seat of danger. This Devil's Chair is called "The Devil's Hot Seat. They say who ever sits on it cannot lie. for the devil and God made a bargain. If you sit here you cannot lie a lie. All your dirty secrets will be revealed. All your dirty laundry will be spread through the Harrison County all the way to Hell and back.

9. La Llorona Texan Haunting White Woman

In South Texas, however, the story of La Llorona is that of a beautiful young woman who attracts the attentions of a wealthy man's son though she is very poor. The lovers secretly marry and set up a household; they have several children. Unfortunately, a day comes when the young man's father announces that he has arranged a marriage for his son to a young woman within their social class (in many telling's, La Llorona is a Native American peasant maiden and her man leaves her for a Spanish lady). The young man tells his secret wife that he must leave her and that he will never see her again. She is driven mad by anger and a broken heart, and takes their children to a river where she drowns them to spite her husband. When her husband finds out he and several townspeople go to find her, but she kills herself before they can apprehend her. She goes to Heaven and faces the judgment of God. God asks her, "Where are your children?" to which she replies, "I do not know." God asks her three times and she replies with the same answer. God then damns her to walk the earth to search for her children. According to this tale, it is wise to avoid La Llorona, as she is known for drowning passers-by in an attempt to replace her dead children. Alternatively, right after she drowns her children, La Llorona realizes what she has done and, overwhelmed by grief and by guilt, she runs alongside the river trying to find her children, but never does, and she dies or disappears in her search for them.

La Llorona

Another popular version of the legend takes place sometime in 19th century. A beautiful young woman with two small children was living in the poorest section of Juarez, Mexico, the town across the border from El Paso. She was madly in love with a very rich man. He felt the same way about her, but he, having no interest in children, refused to marry her. So, late one night, the woman took her children to a bridge over the Rio Grande. In the dead of the night, she heartlessly stabbed her children and threw them in the river to drown. Still wearing her bloody nightgown, she went to her lover's home to show him the great lengths she had gone to be with him. The man, seeing her blood-streaked nightgown, was horrified and rejected her. Then, finally realizing the horrible mistake she had made, she ran back to the river screaming, crying, and tearing at her hair, desperately trying to save her children. But it was too late. The woman stabbed and drowned herself in the same river. The legend has it that as punishment for her unspeakable sins she was given the head of a horse, and was to wander the banks of the Rio Grande for all of eternity looking for her lost children.

In yet another Texas version of the story, La Llorona had several children from her first marriage. Her husband died and she was left lonely. Soon she met a suitor who swept her off her feet. He promised her a wonderful life together, but only if she agreed to get rid of her children. After much soul searching the woman decides to follow the man in a new life together and drowns her children in the Rio Grande. After a few months the suitor grows tired of La Llorona and leaves her for another woman. Realizing that her selfish actions brought about the end of those who truly loved her, she dies in grief with her soul eternally looking for her long lost children.

In another variant, La Llorona is a naive but innocent woman forced into a shotgun wedding with the father of her child; in this case, it is La Llorona's father or her husband who kills the children. La Llorona attempts to stop the murders, and dies in the attempt.

In another variation from New Mexico, the La Llorona is a middle-class woman. After having several children, she is widowed. She slowly loses her mind and one night takes a walk but leaves the stove on. The house catches on fire and all her children die. She tries to save them but can't and is severely burned. Consumed by grief she wanders, dressed in black rags, around the Southwest, taking children who disobey their parents or stay out to late to be her own.

Another version of the story of La Llorona is told in Mexico. She lived in Tequila, Jalisco. She went to get her fortune told, and was told that she was going to die, and so were her children. That same night, while they were sleeping, a big storm hit their village, causing the river to overflow its banks. The house was swept away by the flood, and all of her children died. La Llorona went on a journey to find her children, following the river, but died without ever seeing them again.

In southern Mexico specifically the state of Guerrero, La Llorona was a prostitute. She would abort some children and throw them in the nearby river of Tecpan. After having done this for many years, she died and legend has it that God told her she would never enter Heaven until she brought him all the children she had killed. So God ordered his angels to dress her in a white dress and send her to find her children. So she wanders the rivers of the Earth looking for her drowned children.

Generally, La Llorona becomes a sort of banshee. Her restless spirit walks abroad at night, crying "¡O hijos mios!" or "¡Ay mis hijos!" (O my children!) if not "¿Donde estan mis hijos?" (Where are my children?) or "¿Has visto a mis hijos?" (Have you seen my children?), the later options and variants being used before it reveals its ghostly nature to the victim leading to the victims death. Those unlucky enough to see or hear her are marked for death themselves. Sometimes she is dressed all in white; other times, in black. She is weeping, and in some tellings her eyes are empty sockets or in death she has been reduced to only a skeleton. In some accounts she tricks her victims by appearing in the guise of a familiar person. Accounts of sightings in Texas tell of an eerie figure with a woman's body but the head of a horse. The New Mexican La Llorona hunts after children; some say that she drowns them in the river.

10. THE TEXAS GOATMAN

THE GOATMAN IN THE NEWS:

Did it come from beneath Lake Worth? -

Mystery still cloaks the legend of the Lake Worth Monster and his tire-chucking, hair-raising appearance in July 1969.

On the afternoon of July 10 that year, the Star-Telegram's front page carried a headline above the fold "Fishy Man-Goat Terrifies Couples Parked at Lake Worth."

Reporter Jim Marrs broke the story to the world.

"Six terrified residents told police early today they were attacked by a thing they described as being half-man, half-goat and covered with fur and scales.

"Four units of Fort Worth police and the residents searched in vain for the thing, which was reported seen at Lake Worth, near Greer Island."

John Reichart told police that the creature leapt from a tree and landed on his car, and he showed them an 18-inch scar down the side of his car as proof.

The police officer told Marrs that "we did make a serious investigation because those people were really scared."

The police also revealed that they had received reports in the past but had laughed them off.

The next night, the monster, in front of a couple of dozen witnesses, was said to have uttered a "pitiful cry" and hurled a tire from a bluff at them.

The police weren't laughing anymore. Hundreds of amateur trackers descended on the area with all manner of Remingtons, Brownings and Colts.

The Actual photo below is of Goatman's Bridge (Old Alton Bridge) off of old Alton Road.

The actuall Texas Haunted Goatman Ghost Gridge is located at: 33° 7' 45.56" N 97° 6' 14.81" W

The real Goatman (Goat Man Of Texas) Legend and more as told By Lisa Lee Harp Waugh.

"The Goatman beast of Marshall and Denton, Texas has a undying want for for sex." "It does not discriminate against just having it's way with man or woman or beast." "And often all are said to be equal prey as far as it is concerned." "Many liken the creature to being a 7- 9 foot tall Pan or devil like creature with red eyes and bluish skin." "With the body of a human being, and the horns and head of a goat." Says Lisa Lee Harp Waugh. " I with the late Kerry von Erich hunted for many a night in the summers of my youth."

"In Australia there is a story of a Goatman that tends to help individuals in distress. He leads those lost in the desert to water." Said Waugh, "Some Goatman Mysteries revolve around the infamous tales of goatman Bridge in the States, but in other countries there is a Goatman Well, hill, And the most haunted Goatman location in the world the Banks of Lock Ness." Many believe the Goatman of Loch Ness is a disturbing demonic creature that the great beast Aliester Crowley let loose in one of his Black Magick Spells that he prefomed at Boleskines." "The Boleskines Devil goatman is often called the red eyed or green eyed ghost of the loch."

In the late 1800's Denton, Texas was quite small and Arglye (where the actual haunted cursed goatman's bridge is actually located) was all but non existent at the time. There was a man named Jack "Goat Man" Kendall that lived out that way who owned several flocks of large black orange red and green eyed goats. Through the sale of Goat meat, cheese milk hides and hooves and horns he made a humble living.

Many of the merchants in Denton, Marshall, Henderson and as far as Galveston and also Shreveport, Louisiana thought this old man to be very strange and often he was the topic of conversation as far as New Orleans.

This Jack "The "Goat Man" was a private person, only because no one wanted to know his private affairs only for the fear that what he did in the hot fields was actually perverse and not Christian. Many believed that not only did his sexual involvement with his many goats produce strange half human offspring's but that he was in league with the works of the devil.

Jack dressed in clothes made of entirely from goatskins. his shoes his hat all made from the leftovers of his slaughtered flocks. They say you knew when he was around because his stench was so strong and overpowering that it would make those with the strongest of stomachs gag out right to his face. And they say his goats did not smell any better.

No one knew much about him from where he came or how he spent his days. They could only surmise that his flocks were his main chore. He also had a special goat that stayed by his side. She was a goat he called Delilah.

Many of the people in Denton, Marshall, Henderson, Tyler and Galveston knew that his wife Myrtle Mary died mysteriously. They will tell you her body was found one day close to the train tracks near Marshall. Many who saw her they say the look on her face was so wild with fright. And that she wa dressed in a multi colored fur Goatskin outfit from head to toe. They the citizens of Marshall being god fearing souls,buried her on a Friday. And when someone went to her grave in the old Marshall Texas cemetery, it looked like she had dug herself out. But that's another tale for later. ALSO PLEASE SEE: THE HAUNTED TROLL BRIDGE OF MARSHALL, TEXAS "And The Ghost Of Myrtle Mary The Goatwoman"

Some believe that one day on the Fourth of July a few of the men in Denton got drunk and started riding around the area. They found Old Jack herding his goats late at night and drove the old man and his goats off the bridge. Others believe he found them stealing his goats or possible even having sex with his prized goat Delilah. But as the rest of the sorted story goes he told them to get off is land. The processed to beat him mercifully cutting his throat and the head off of his beloved Delilah and they threw him bleeding and his goats head into the dark waters of the creek.

When the sheriff's of Denton and Marshall found out about this he investigated and could no longer find the old man or a single hair nor sign of his great flock of over 500 plus goats.

Weeks later after an event in the city a family was crossing the bridge in their wagon and could hear odd noises from underneath the bridge.

After they crossed the bridge they smelled a foul death stench that made them cover their faces. The horrid great smell was like some huge wild animal had died and the smell of sulfur and urine. When supposedly they turned and looked back and saw a wild beast man 9 foot tall goatman thing with devil red frey eyes staring at them, holding the head of Jacks favorite goat and in the other the lifeless body of old Jack himself.

Many believe that the Goatman creature is actually the child or offspring from Jacks sexual unions with his goats. and many believe he fathered hundreds of the creatures and they went on to father even more that are said to haunt the woods and swamps from Marshall and as Far as the swamps of New Orleans.

Now as of today the stories are that you can hear the sound of hooves on the bridge and splashes in the water and some people say they saw the man but his head was a goats head. Many often tell of the terrible stench when the goatman or thing is near. They say it smells like a culmination of rancid flesh, urine, sulphur and an odor similar to a fertilizer plant.

I've been to this what many call The Goatman Bridge many times in my life, But to this day I have only smelled him approaching and decided not to stick around to see if he was real.

I must warn you and tell everyone that the old bridge is very dangerous at night and I have heard the splashes and heard weird sounds while standing on the bridge. One night Kerry Von Erich myself and several of our ghost hunting friends set out to see if we could meet the demon Goatman eye to eye. but when this great smelling evil stench filled the air we decided to leave in hurry. We were all only in our early teens and i guess the fear that we had come across something really supernatural made us panic and run.

WARNING: Do NOT By any means try to Investigate This Very Haunted Bridge Alone At Night.

Others across the United States have describe it as being a cross between the two a mutant form to a large degree. It is likely that the demonized images of the incubus and even the horns and cloven hooves of Satan, as depicted in much medieval and post-medieval Christian literature and art, were taken from the images of Pan.

 

Often known or called Satyrs (or Fauns) in Cryptozoology, the Goatman of Maryland is today associated with Governor’s Bridge Road, Lottsford Road and Fletchertown Road, in Prince George's County, and with the nearby Glenn Dale Hospital, the former site of a state tuberculosis sanatorium. It is reported to have attacked a number of witnesses and to have damaged property.

The Real Haunted Hag Of Galveston, Texas.

A Truth... Or A Real Urban Legend?

The Hag Of Galveston, Texas.

 

by Leslie Danielle Ferrymen


Few outsiders know of the ghosts that haunts the Strand everyday of the year. Many will not speak of her fearing that she will come and haunt them until they die a horrible death. She is not mentioned on the Ghost Of Galveston Island Ghost Tour either.

The "Haunted Hag Of The Strand" in Galveston, Texas is bringer of the most haunted experience you could ever have. Many believe that she is a lost soul who had died in The Great Storm of 1900. Those who dare walk the Strand late at night see her strange apparition roaming the streets and peering around corners She is said to scream obscenities if you try to catch her or speak to her. And if she does not like you look out!

Over the years some locals have called her a ghoul. Still others say she is a vampire queen of the night that will haunt you until you die. But finding out the truth is reserved only for the very brave of heart. And so far only one team of Texas Paranormal Investigators have ventured out to try in recent times. Stories often tell that she sucks the life out of men and slits the throats of woman with her bare teeth and long nails. So be wary If you seek out for yourself.

The story of this Hag does go back well before the great storm. Magdalena was her name and a supposed spurned lover of the pirate King Jean Lafitte. The story goes that this beautiful Creole woman sold her soul to the Devil to get Laffite to fall in love wit her. But Laffite wore a very old powerful Voodoo Charm from a New Orleans exiled slave Voodoo Queen that protected him from all magical spells that could be put on him.

The voodoo hoodoo charm was given to him for the actual trade of her freedom, that which Lafitte granted.

Magdalena tried to seduce the great Pirate King but his charm saved him from her. By turning her into a creature forever to roam the night.

The Pirate King Of Galveston Island

After being run out of New Orleans around 1817, Lafitte relocated to the island of Galveston, Texas establishing another "kingdom" he named "Campeche". In Galveston, Lafitte either purchased or set his claim to a lavishly furnished mansion used by French pirate Louis-Michel Aury, which he named "Maison Rouge". The building's upper level was converted into a fortress where a cannon commanding Galveston harbor was placed. Around 1820, Lafitte reportedly married Madeline Regaud, possibly the widow or daughter of a French colonist who had died during an ill-fated expedition to Galveston. In 1821, the schooner USS Enterprise was sent to Galveston to remove Lafitte from the Gulf after one of the pirate's captains attacked an American merchant ship. Lafitte agreed to leave the island without a fight, and in 1821 or 1822 departed on his flagship, the Pride, burning his fortress and settlements and reportedly taking immense amounts of treasure with him. All that remains of Maison Rouge is the foundation, located at 1417 Avenue A near the Galveston wharf. When Laffite left Galveston Island in 1820 he made Jao de la Porta, a Jewish Texan merchant, a full-time trader.

While the Lafitte brothers were engaged in running the Galveston operation, one client they worked with considerably in the slave smuggling trade was James Bowie. The Lafittes were selling slaves at a dollar a pound, and Bowie would buy them at the Lafittes' rate, then get around the American laws against slave trading by reporting his purchased slaves as having been found in the possession of smugglers. The law at the time allowed Bowie to collect a fee on the "recovered" slaves, and he would then re-buy the slaves (essentially a "slave laundering" act) and then resell them to prospective buyers. And many Voodoo Hoodoo believers were so transported to Texas because of this.

The Lafittes were also engaged in espionage, and were, in effect, double agents. The notion of their loyalty to the United States, while much evoked by their own publicity, was highly dubious. The Lafittes (Pierre, in particular) spied for Spain through agents in Cuba and in Louisiana. While often providing solid material, the Lafittes in fact played both sides, American and Spanish, and always with an eye to securing their own interests. No doubt the charm of Pierre and his reputation as a man in the know figured heavily in the weight he was given by his immediate handlers, although he was never trusted by the higher-up of the Spanish interests. Of particular interest it should be noted that while running the island of Galveston for personal benefit, Pierre Lafitte tried to induce Spain to assault the island. This would have enhanced his standing with Spain while causing minimal real losses to the Lafitte operations.

Herbert Asbury recounts his death in The French Quarter: An Informal History of the New Orleans Underworld. In 1826, Lafitte entered the little Indian village of Teljas, on the mainland, and died of fever after a few days' illness in a native hut. He was 47. All the Voodoo Hoodoo Magic and riches he had Could not save is life.

Tales Of Black Magic And The Devil On Galveston Island

I questioned the Local ghost guide's a well respected psychic partner the beautiful lady back in 2004. She told me that The Galveston Hag was a evil witch that wanted immortal life and beauty. But in her love tryst with the Pirate Lafitte she became pregnant with child. The baby in her womb is said to possess the powers that the Devil had given her. Not the hag. You see the devil had tricked her because he knew she was trying to trick him into giving her all she wanted with no strings attached. Amy also said she had seen the old Hag on several occasions and sometimes she followed her late night ghost tours looking to capture a straggler or two.

I asked why and she said, "To capture the youth she long ago lost." You see when her infernal Devil Baby was born she immediately dried up and aged to the figure of a 80 year old woman. Her child, a girl was said to be very alert an had all the abilities of an adult at birth. And at once ran off into the night with umbilical cord still wrapped around her neck from where the hag tried to strangle it at birth. The child is said to have run to Laffites home on the Island and nearly killed him stealing the charm bag from around his neck as it fled.

In early 1821, the U.S. Navy ran Lafitte out of Galveston, according to French Quarter: An Informal History of the New Orleans Underworld. While leaving, Lafitte burned his compound and the ruins that were left is where the Devil Child is said to hide from the Hag at.

Lafitte's spirit walks the the homes ruins on nights of full moons it is said waiting for his Magdalena to be whole again.

Thus, despite the great heights to which Lafitte rose, began his decline. He left with three vessels, and left the once beautiful creole, now wretched Magdalena behind.

The beastly evil child is said to have lived in the ruins of Laffite's mansion until it grew to womanhood.

Amy would tell me no more then this. She said to speak of it means the old Hag or worse the devil's child will seek you out and kill you.

I pushed her for a few more details.

The Hag was transformed into a living Vampire she said until she died and was buried in the Old City Cemetery which is in the group of 7 on Broadway between "Broadway, or Ave J as it is also known" and Ave L, and 40th to 43rd St. She is buried or was in an unmarked grave. But she did not stay their long. The Great Storm is said to have set her free and since then she roams the streets seducing men and killing woman until she finds her Devil child. Once she can kill the child her offspring from Satan it is said she will regain her beauty and be whole again to live out her life as a normal woman.

"If Seeing The Old Galveston Hag Is Believing?" "Then I want to keep my eyes closed." Said Amy.

I just went back to Galveston Island this spring of this year. Sadly the beautiful young lady is no longer with the tour company, So I asked the nights ghost tour Host. What could he tell of the Galveston Hag? His face seemed to turn a shade or two paler then his normal color. He said " Who Told you about that?" I told him I heard on his tour in 2004. " Well that explains it he said." "Some stories only need to be told once." I wanted to know more about it I asked. He then asked me to tell him the story I knew, so I told him.He then said "I wouldn't go looking for no Hag if I was you." Case Closed he said I can give you no more then what you already know." He also said that that story is not part of his tour for obvious reasons."

So I set out with my camera and equipment to question the locals about the Hag and what they knew. Many of those that I talked to said they knew of the many ghosts that haunted the little Island. But as far as stories go they could give me no more then what I already knew.

I was told about the ghostly woman who sucked blood. And that she preyed on the many homeless people that frequented the Island in the summer months. Also about the old woman ghost that frequented the homes of new born's and watched over them to protect them from the Devil's child.

But it wasn't until 3:00 AM one night when I saw a shadowy figure roaming the strand dressed in black with long gray blond hair, that I realized the Old Hag of Galveston might just be real! I followed her to one of the many large service alleys where she disappeared into the darkness. I still wonder was I lucky to have seen her? Or just "Lucky" she did not see me?

The Painting of Bernardo de Galvez hangs at the very end of the long hall at the Hotel Galvez. Many who see it get a chill for they say they can feel his eyes following them as they walk past. Report poor in to several in the paranormal community that much like Robert the Haunted Doll in Key West, Florida this ghost does not like having his portraits picture taken unless you ask his permission first.

Many who try taking a photo of this real haunted painting like Hotel guest Greg Dauber, say that only after they ask the ghost for his permission can a good photo be captured.

The Hotel Galvez since the early 1900s known as the "Queen of the Gulf," has undergone a total renovation to recapture its original glamour while updating the hotel's accommodations and facilities to the latest standards. And it is haunted! Constructed in 1911, Hotel Galvez was named after Bernardo de Galvez, the Spanish Colonial governor who first chartered the Texas Gulf Coast and for whom the city of Galveston was named. Hotel Monthly billed the hotel as one of the "best arranged and most richly furnished seaside hotels in America" a year after the hotel opened. Decades later in 1980, the hotel was named in the National Registrar of Historic Places.

To see this haunted painting in person sends chills down the spines of some of the most staunch skeptics. Or so they say.

Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid, Viscount of Galveston and Count of Gálvez (Spanish: Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid, vizconde de Gálveztown y conde de Gálvez) (July 23, 1746, Málaga, Spain—November 30, 1786, Mexico City) was a Spanish military leader and the general of Spanish forces in New Spain who served as governor of Louisiana and governor of Cuba. He spent the last two years of his life as viceroy of New Spain, succeeding his father Matías de Gálvez y Gallardo, who had been viceroy before him.

 

Gálvez is remembered for aiding the United States in its quest for independence in the American Revolutionary War. Galveston, Texas and several other places are named for him.

Messengers From The Other Side In Marshall, Texas

Messengers From The Other Side In Marshall, Texas When a Messenger Ghost or apparitions comes a calling always expect the unexpected. 

The traditional paranormal view or awareness of real haunting's and ghosts is that they are the spirits of dead people that for some reason are trapped "stuck" or caught between this world or level of existence and the next, because of the emotional attachment to living or unfinished business or regrets of some tragedy or trauma they experienced while dying.

Messenger spirits do not have to be the ghost of a family member. Some believe it is death come a calling or warning those that are near to person that they will hear news of someone's immediate demise.

That night after the call a black shape will rule your dreams and actually be seen when you awaken. With in hours news of a family member or close friends death is imminent.

When a Messenger Ghost or apparition comes a calling always expect the unexpected.

Paranormal encounters with real Ghosts: The Messengers


This strange and particular type of paranormal phenomena or ghosts may be the most common that many experience today. Banshee's are a type of Messenger heralding the upcoming death of a person.

The Texas Banshee

In Irish legend, a banshee wails around a house if someone in the house is about to die. There are particular families who are believed to have banshees attached to them, and whose cries herald the death of a member of that family. Traditionally, when a citizen of an Irish village died, a woman would sing a lament (in Irish: caoineadh , "caoin" meaning "to weep, to wail") at their funeral. These women singers are sometimes referred to as "keeners" and the best keeners would be in much demand. Legend has it that, for five great Gaelic families: the O'Gradys, the O'Neills, the O'Briens, the O'Connors, and the Kavanaghs, the lament would be sung by a fairy woman; having foresight, she would sing the lament when a family member died, even if the person had died far away and news of their death had not yet come, so that the wailing of the banshee was the first warning the household had of the death.

In later versions the banshee might appear before the death and warn the family by wailing, screaching or howling likea hound from hell . When several banshees appeared at once, it indicated the death of someone great or holy. The Texas Banshee tales sometimes recounted that the woman, though called a ghost lady, was a lost spirit and not a wandering unknown ghost, often of a specific murdered woman, or a woman who that you would have known that died a horrible slow death or in childbirth of twins.

Marshall, Texas Banshees are frequently described as dressed in all white or light blue or grey robes, and often having long, grey, black or wirey wild hair with bluing or purpleish skin. The Texas Banshee also come s to those to warn of impending doom in dreams or in a stage at awakening. Dream Banshee's are often vague Shadow people hooded or robed.

Dream Banshee

A prominent family in Marshall tells of a Banshee like being that visited several members in a family on a particular night in January 2008. 5 different households witnessed a blackish shadow robed and hooded paranormal being waking over 24 different family members that night across the town. The next day word came that a realative had died in Afghanistan at the very hour.

The Lost Soul Of A Loved One Or Not

Lost souls or known ghosts or spirits usually appear to family members shortly after their deaths to people close to them. Some often report seeing the dead person standing over the foot of their bed for one last goody bye. They are aware of their deaths and can interact with the living letting them know they have so died. They most often do this to bring messages of comfort to their loved ones, to say that they are well and happy, and not to grieve for them. or that is what many believe. These ghosts appear briefly and usually only once. It is as if they intentionally return with their messages for the express purpose of helping the living cope with their loss.

This type e of strange haunting or paranormal experience commonly involves a one-time visit to someone with whom the apparition had a close emotional ties. Ex Lovers, Husbands, Wives, anyone with an attachment to you could be the apparition. And often those that encounter such ghosts or very unnerved for a feeling of danger or loss, doom or horror is in your mind for a long time. And don't count out even the apparitions of lost or dying pets.

Ghost Fortell The future

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh The great American Necromancer calls these ghosts "Death Tellers or Doom Speaker Apparitions." Though the encounter usually seems to last less then a minute or two, They are only to be a type of farewell. Though sometimes important and useful information is relayed to the Person who experiences them. but the encounter is very short in duration. Though dying is the most common reason they appear, other impending doom or even financial gloom to a person even a life-threatening or emotional situation warrant these particular ghost to come to you. Some ghost are even just fortellers of things to come nothing more. Also see: "NEW SPIRIT AND REAL GHOST PREDICTIONS FOR 2008 - 2009"

There is also in Marshall, Texas the ghost of the White Lady that is a harbinger of death. The Crying White Lady Ghost will lead you to the newly dead in Marshall, Texas."

Good News From The Dead

Some Ghost come to spread joy and happiness. Not all ghost come to warn of danger and mayhem to enter your life. They can also come to foretell of great joy and many good things to come. From the birth of a child or an answer to your prayers. In Marshall we have often been told since childhood of the ghost of "Happy Sallie". Ms. Sallie as many call her is a the ghost of an older woman always seen with a big toothless smile on her face. So many say in Marshall that she presses her face against the windows of homes and even cars on rainy gloomy stormy nights. When you encounter her your life is in store for some wonderful changes for the better.

Banshee Ghost

There are ghost I have been told that will appear to some when they are in the most depressed stages of their life. These spirits only come to you says Waugh when you or in need of a new lease on life. They are just a paranormal bookmark or sign of better things to come.

Marshall, TX Ghosts:

Waterworks Hill Ghost Lady Loves To Go For Ride.

Marshall, Texas Ghost Lady Loves To Go For Ride.

Is this The Famous Ghost Traveler of Marshall Texas? Photo sent to us by David Bernard Day. This highway photo was taken March 21, 2008 south of Marshall, Texas.

 

Many seek the truth to who the lady is that haunts the hill. But when you finds you she is out to save your life. Many in Marshall, Texas believe it is none other then the ghost of Mrs. D.A. ERWIN. Her ghost can be picked up anywhere along highway I-20 and Us 59. as long as your headed in the direction of Marshall Texas she will be encountered. Many believe her to be the most traveling ghost in America.


By LISA LEE HARP WAUGH

 

If your coming in from the North South East or West to Marshall, TX, you might just see and have an encounter with one of the most friendliest ghost in the area. Her story may have inspired similar legends in other parts of the great state of Texas as well as the U. S. cities she is said to be picked up in. The ghost Lady is said to haunt U.S. Route 59 and I-20. Interstate 20.

Interstate 20 (abbreviated I-20) is a major east-west interstate highway in Texas and the southeastern United States. It runs 1,535 miles (2,470 km) from near Kent, Texas, to Florence, South Carolina. Besides Texas and South Carolina, I-20 runs through northern Louisiana, central Mississippi, western and north-central Alabama, and north-central Georgia.

U.S. Route 59 is a north-south United States highway (though it is signed east-west in parts of Texas). A latecomer to the US numbered route system, U.S. 59 is now a border-to-border route. The highway's northern terminus is nine miles north of Lancaster, Minnesota, at the Canadian border. Its southern terminus is in Laredo, Texas, just north of the Mexican border.

The traveling ghost lady has been known to ride with a person for many hours and days and keep you talking. She is a very nice dead lady who is worried that you might fall asleep at the wheel and get into a accident on your way to or through Texas. The many who have met her including myself will all tell you she is very nice and will talk your arm off.

Where, When And How the Traveling Ghost Lady died?

Marshall Texas Waterworks Hill Auto Wreck occurred in March 1936 - Woman is Killed, Four Injured in Auto-Truck Crash. But her ghost is said to haunt the spot and flag down people late at night asking for a ride to town. Not unlike the many tales of resurrection Mary. Mrs. Erwin is said to be very polite and is one of the most charming ghost you'd ever want to meet. Many say she is a great travel companion to have on any long cross country drive.

Mrs D.A. ERWIN. is undoubtedly Marshall's most famous ghost. If you see her and pick her up it is a warning from beyond the grave that you are in danger and she is there to stop a great tragedy from happening to you. Some say she is very talkative and asks your name and where your from. She will even tell you about her family and often pull a photo or two out of her purse and show you it. Sometimes she asks for a ride to Kahn Memorial Hospital which no longer exists.

Marshall. Texas

Some call her a lost soul or a "vanishing Old Lady hitchhiker". Reports of Mrs. Erwin seem to have stopped around the early 1990s when the highway underwent reconstruction. The original road is said to have since been razed and changed and believers suggest that this may have stopped the walking of her spirit. Despite this, reports still show up from people seeing the apparition walking from time to time. Especially in the beginning of the year and around Thanksgiving and Christmas.


Marshall, Texas, march 21.- One person was killed and four others injured in an automobile collision Saturday evening on the Waterworks Hill about two miles north of Marshall.

Mrs. D.A. ERWIN, about 65, was fatally injured and died on the operating table in the Kahn Memorial Hospital, being badly crushed. BALLARD DINWIDDIE, cotton adjuster in the county agent’s office here, received a broken arm and a gash on the head and his three children, Jerry, 13, cut over eye; Tommy, 11, cut on head, and Mary Jane, 10, bruises about the body. They were taken to the hospital for treatment and later the children were taken to the family residence.

The family had been to Paris to see Mrs. Winwiddie,(sic) who had undergone an operation there, and were returning home when their car collided with a truck and trailer as the truck was trying to pass another car.

The Dinwiddie moved to Marshall from Clarksville about six months ago.

The driver of the truck, Billy Owens of Gill, son of Mr. and Mrs. M.L. Owens of Jefferson and his companion, whom he had picked up on the road, were not injured. Owens was placed under $500 bond pending an investigation.

The body of Mrs. ERWIN, mother-in-law of Dinwiddie, will be taken to her home in Clarksville for burial Sunday. She was a lifelong resident of Red River county.

Dallas Morning News, Dallas, TX 22 Mar 1936

Since late 1939 many locals in Marshall tell how a elderly lady is often seen standing along side the dark and lonely dusty road side. Mrs. Erwin's Ghost is said to have saved the lives of over 100's of people or more over the years since her untimely death. I just happened to be one that picked her up one late night March 21st 1994. She did introduced herself as Mrs. Erwin to my surprise. And I knew from the start this was a real ghost because I knew of her story since I was child of 8 from my Father. But since she acted very much alive I treated her as such.

As we drove through the night for I was coming back home from a visit to South Carolina. W e talked about the weather and such. Then she told me about being from Clarksville, TX. She said that her husband was dead for many years, and about having just moved to Marshall so she did not know her way around like she should. She also spoke of her visit to Paris, Tx and how her daughters husband mother-in-law Mrs. Winwiddie, had undergone a serious female tumor problem operation.

Paris is a city located 98 miles (158 km) northeast of the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex in Lamar County, Texas, in the United States. It is situated in East Texas, specifically Northeast Texas, at the western edge of the Piney Woods. She went on to tell me with her sweet Texas drawl that. "It is the county seat of Lamar County". She talked of Grand children and her children. And could a nice girl like me driving all alone alone was not scared of getting into an accident.

Since the 1940s, several driving to or from Marshall have reported picking up a older stranded female hitchhiker. This woman ghost I encountered was dressed somewhat formally and had light blond or red gray hair long and in a matching buns on both sides of her head, blue eyes, and wearing a black old fashioned dress and shoes.

Some more attentive drivers would sometimes add that she wore a thin shawl, or gloves, and that she had a large black purse, and is very talkative.

When I got to 811 S. Washington area, She asked to be let out, whereupon she disappeared into the darkness.

So if you ever encounter the "Traveling Ghost Of Texas" please tell her hello from me.

Have The Dead Spoken To You Lately?

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh The Great American Necromancer


Lisa Lee Harp Waugh The American Necromancer

The first lady of conjuring the Dead. The ancient art pf Necromancy is still alive today with Waugh at it's main investigator. LISA LEE HARP WAUGH Is a necromancer in the 21st century. She is by what may call a real conduit to the world of the dead. She dressers in ceremonial robes, draws magical circles on the floor and commands spirits from Heaven, Hell and all places in between to appear before her and communicate with the living.

A professional Necromancer and founder of the Sorcerers Guild of greater Houston, Texas. Waugh has been practicing and conducting rituals for many paranormal investigators for over 20 years. Waugh also paints many spiritual and common murals and lives in a small Texas town with her three dogs. She also over the years makes ceremonial candles and is active in ghost hunting in the deep South. Summoning the dead to communicate with the living is a natural daily occurrence for Waugh. "I have been doing this since I was a child." " When I lived in Galveston, Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced to the ancient rights of ceremonial Necromancy as a ritual by a great shaman called Freebird, and because of him and his diligence to the art, I still practice it until this day." "However, if a spirit has something vital to impart to you, they will call upon you, not vice-versa and no ritual is needed".

She then Got involved with the local Hoodoo Voodoo's of the area and new doors where opened to her concerning communicating with the dead.

Waugh was baptized and trained in the secret dark religion by Bianca The Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. Waugh lived in New Orleans for 3 years until she learned all about spells, hex's and how to hoodoo voodoo people as she says.

Waugh also owned and managed the fantastic Candle Making Company in Galveston, Texas for many years that catered to the eclectic patrons taste of many of the states visitors and just curious. She then moved to Houston's Famous Vodoun area 5th ward. This now where she resides to this day. Her home today is a testimony to Necromancy and her new found religion of Voodoo Hoodoo.

Necromantic practitioners such as Waugh conducts, and entails respect and reverence not only for the spirits of the dead, but for the spirits of Hell, Heaven and all places in between. Waugh has a large home one room she has painted black where she calls the good spirits. Another painted all black where she calls the infernal spirits.

The American Ghost Hunters Society is currently accepting new members all across the country for our network of ghost hunters, ghost writers and ghost enthusiasts.

Waugh is often compared today in her facial features and many similar practices as being a modern Dr. John Dee. He of course was one of the most fascinating characters of the Elizabethan period just as Waugh is recognized as such in modern times. The events of Dee's life are filled with science, experiments, astrology and mathematics which he aligned with magic, the supernatural and alchemy! All of which is Waugh's personal passion and driven honest beliefs. These are also stead fast traditions she does and true in practicing openly. A few of her select followers say she is the actual reincarnation of John Dee. Waugh also practices astrology, and is very continuously studying the Black Arts.

Waugh, a real big hearted Texas gal does not comment on any of this privately or publicly ... for she is humble in her paranormal studies and research to the core. Gina Lanier a close friend of her's relates: "Waugh is a very outgoing friendly, charming and a downright loveable person, and gets along equally well with the living and the dead." Lanier and Waugh once investigated a real Haunted Texas Federal Prison together for close to two years in the early 1990's and had many startling paranormal adventures while there.

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh's accomplishments have been achieved through hard work, persistence, and a goal-oriented attitude required to overcome obstacles and reach difficult goals. Waugh shares her approach to communicating with the dead's success in this motivational performance that's sure to inspire Paranormal Investigators to excel in their life.
