Providence Site, An undisclosed location in South Carolina
Saturday, June 30, 2007
Time started: 11:00 PM
Temp: see summary
Conditions: Rainy, cloudy, FULL MOON
After leaving Blackstock, we headed to Providence for an investigation there. Arriving around 1AM, the temperature was 67 – 68 degrees, still cloudy. It was not as wet as Blackstock. As we entered the cemetery proper, I had to visit an old friend, Mr. Matthews, who tends to follow me when I come to this cemetery. Most of us went directly to his gravesite, and I immediately got high EMF readings. I tried to get him to talk to me so that I could capture EVP, and many took digital shots during this encounter. EMF readings soon returned to normal, so we left his grave and walked back to the entrance path. I pointed out that the left side of the cemetery is primarily graves from the 1900′s, while the right side is much older with graves from 1800′s and 1700′s. The right side extends for hundreds of yards. There are some Revolutionary War soldiers buried here as well as some signers of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence signed in May 1775. At the end of the entrance path is a gate in the rock wall. We went here next. This is the slave cemetery section.
The slave cemetery lies to the left behind the rock wall of the cemetery proper. There is a path down the hill which leads to a natural spring. A small metal footbridge allows you to cross the spring.
This is at the bottom of a very large gully. Members captured orbs here. There is also a feeling of oppression here. This area also bothers some of our more sensitive members. I myself refer to it as “the Hellmouth”.
Upon leaving this area, everyone gathered near the top of the pathway beside the slave graveyard. Kurtis was sitting on an old block of concrete, and experienced someone pulling his hair and playing with it (this is not unusual, as I have had this happen to me). I got EMF readings behind him. Nikki got an impression of a large man we believe the same one who bothers Kimberly on occasion, as it was in the same area as the concrete block.
Last but not least, we headed for “the scary path”. At the beginning of the path, my EMF detector was going off wildly. Everyone in the group was taking pictures at the time. This pathway parallels the cemetery proper behind the rock wall. We continued on this path to the place that I felt my hair being pulled once before. After reaching that point, we waited for a few moments. Soon, the EMF detector was going off wildly again. The highest levels possible were being recorded, as I could actually feel the energy. Others in the group felt it too, and everyone was taking pictures. I continued to try to capture EVP while these high EMF readings were being recorded. After this flurry of activity subsided, we made our way to the end of the path and back into the cemetery itself. I wanted to see if the EMF readings would spike again on the cemetery side of the wall from where we had just been, and as I expected, they did. Sarah and Michelle were walking with me, and we witnessed the same high level of EMF activity as we did previously while behind the wall. There seems to be something in that area, either in front or behind the wall, the activity remains the same.
At this point, it was getting late and many of our members had long drives ahead of them. We gathered at the entrance path, and made our way out of the cemetery. It was shortly after 2am when we concluded this investigation.
