The temperature would sometimes drop 20 or more degrees very suddenly. I was also slapped once on the left ear while I was sleeping. When I turned on the light, I saw a hideous, hunched-over figure, about 3.
5 to 4 feet tall, standing in the middle of my bedroom. I have since learned that that may have been an ''elemental,'' or malevolent spirit. I never actually saw anything other than that, and that was the only time during those three years
or so that I ever actually felt threatened.|
Most of the time, I was just annoyed that the poltergeist (s) wouldn't let me sleep! After a while, the
noises and so forth weren't that scary. The woods around the house had any number of piles of stones.|
This could have been from the time when the woods had been farmland years ago, but I have often wondered if those were old burial mounds. If anyone else from the Eldred area, or anywhere in Sullivan county, has any comment on this, I'd be glad to hear it.

Comment by anonymous: I live in Eldred now, Airport road actually. While I lay here at 12 am I have chills down my spine. But yes lots of rock mounds. My father has told me that they are sometimes property lines, this is how they separated land in late 1800 to early 1900s. Then some of them could also be the remains of old foundations as well just piled together.
