Ghost report by Kim on April 14, 2014:
“I was in attendance at a War of 1812 re-enactment. I like to do photography and thought that it would be a great idea to get some photos of the old cemeteries on the property. In my pictures I happened to catch orbs and mist but nothing compared to what results I recorded within the original Backus Family Homestead.
I was by myself at the time and I was sure of that because there was no one else inside the house at the time. I was walking taking pictures at first when I came to the children’s playroom. An antique rocking horse started to rock back and forth on it’s own. So I immediately snapped a photo with my digital still camera. In this picture I caught an orb and at the same time I took the photo I heard a child laugh in my right ear as clear as day. I tried to communicate conducting an EVP session but no EVP after the laughter I heard. I decided to leave my digital recorder in the child’s play room while I went taking more pictures and I’m glad I did because exactly 5 min and 15 sec into the EVP I captured a class A evp of a child saying “Momma” followed by a cough. Then upon further research the youngest daughter of John Backus had died from pneumonia.
And to think I had captured this class A evp. I was very proud.”
