Between 1972 and 1975 I rented a farmhouse on West Street, within sight of Norfolk Prison, separated only by a bog. Evidently the 'Bock' or 'Brock' farm had once been the sight of a devastating fire in which the main farmhouse, the barns, and all the cattle were destroyed. My boyfriend and I were awakened one night by horrible screaming (if you can call it that) of non-human entities that seemed to be being tortured. The day before, we had found some bovine vertebrae and a pelvic bone on the upper field and brought them home.
My mother, visiting from New York saw a woman in a white nightgown in the front field, and another time she and my stepfather saw the same presence coming up the stairs to our guestroom where they were staying. We talked to people living up the road, and they said that old Mrs. Bock (or Brock) had wandered away one night, in dementia, and drowned herself in the very large pond about a quarter mile north of the property (in which we used to swim, with no apparent apparitions). This 'Mrs. Bock' seemed to like us, and she was a very benevolent presence, except she did not seem to like my parents! The ghostly cows, however, still haunt my memories, and all I can say is that I am grateful that my boyfriend heard the screaming, too.
We blessed the bones we had removed from the upper field. We said very heartfelt prayers for their 'souls' ' release, yet when I gave the bones to my uncle in New Jersey years later, he, a curmudgeonly old Scotsman, swore that they were possessed! He knew nothing of their origin. I humored him and took them back to our new (old) house in Jersey City. The bones never bothered me, although I could sense their 'presence. ' I suppose the cows, who had died such a hideous death in the fire, liked me too.
The final resting place of the bones is unknown to me. My third husband disposed of them during our rather vicious divorce. I suppose they didn't like him, either, but after ten years of marriage, he never once mentioned them. I wish I had them back, quite frankly.
Any info on the Bock (Brock) farm would be appreciated.
