I lived on several occasions in the house on Ridge Road in Damascus that my great grandfather built and where my grandmother and great-aunt were born. It is a large farmhouse. I used to sleep in what was originally the first floor parlor when I lived there while I was in college. In the room I lived in there was a full bath added on years earlier for my great grandfather when he could no longer get up and down the stairs. At night I would hear muffled cries pacing footsteps back and forth along the upstairs hallway, doors opening and shutting, and whispering. Being that the house had been in my family since the get-go I really did not think I had anything to fear.
One Christmas my great aunt came to visit me while I was living in the house. I accompanied her to my great grandparents and grandmothers' graves to put flowers on them at a nearby church cemetery. While there my aunt put flowers on a small grave that was beside my great grandparents' grave, and I asked her whose grave that was. She told me that it was her little sister's grave who died at birth, and she remembered the night well. In those days you did not go to the hospital to have babies. You had them at home. My great grandmother was in labor upstairs in her bedroom which was also the room directly above the old parlor that I was sleeping in. Sadly she gave birth to a stillborn which would have been the youngest child if she had survived. My great grandmother was heartbroken and cried and cried. My great grandfather, not knowing how to deal with such tragedy and emotions, would pace back and forth along the hall upstairs at night. My aunt would tell me that she and my grandmother were very young and did not quite understand what was happening and were told to be very quiet. They whispered among themselves about how pretty the baby looked in her christening dress and would sneak out of their rooms to look at the baby who was laid outside of my great grandparents' door. When I heard the story it sent chills up my spine because I had been hearing that night being replayed over and over again some nights while I slept in the room directly under my great grandparents' bedroom.

There were also some darker things that occurred in that house which I am reluctant to go into. I had pictures taken of the house with orbs in them. I had an odd picture of a small child looking out of the front window of the old dining room (which was always the coldest room in the house and where the orbs where photographed as well). I knew it was rumored to be an old Indian burial ground nearby. There was also a house that had once been there before but behind the house that my great grandfather built. It was either torn down or burned down, but the cellar is still there somewhere under the earth behind that house. I believe there is a vortex or ''gateway'' to that house because I am also psychic. How and why I came to be I do not know, but I do know that that particular house is very dangerous. Since it has been sold out of the family after over one hundred years in our family I have seen it go up for sale about four or five times. I think whoever had lived there probably got scared out of their minds and put the house up for sale. The cycle kept on going. I also plan to visit the house soon as I can feel there is certain activity going on. If ever I can, I plan to buy it back one day. As for some reason I feel a need to protect it, as much as I need to protect it from everyone else and resolve some things left undone there. God bless and protect you.
