Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina Ghost Sightings
I rented a house on Charlotte Street in Roanoke Rapids about 1976 and had strange things to go on there. My son who was four years old kept hearing things in the attic and I told him it was probably a squirrel or a mouse.|
One night I was dozing in my bedroom and a voice next to my ear said ''I am going to have that child'' I was too terrified to move or make a sound. After that we kept hearing footsteps and other unexplained noises.
We moved out of
that house and rented another one a couple of blocks away.|

My friend lived in a big old house near a corner of Emry Park and Clara Hearne School. Her home had a separate wash house out back that her family converted half-way into a guest house by setting up a bed room set in the front of it and putting up a fold-up-partition in between the ''bedroom'' and the room with the washer/dryer and her dad's tools and tool bench. She was having her 16th birthday sleepover with myself and two more girls; we stayed in the guest room. Things were normal until about 10:00 pm when it got dark out.
There were the ''angels. '' One was an ''angel'' that flew around the bed we slept on; we could feel its presence because we would each hold a hand out in different directions and occasionally all feeling its cold breeze simultaneously. The other ''angel'' stood at the door of the wash house looking in as if it were protecting us. We each took turns going up to it and investigating it. From what I remember, it felt like a cold white cloudy presence that seemed to loom over us as tall as the ceiling. Then there was the chair ''angel. '' This one was peculiar. Being of the Christian faith we believed that angel wings dripped with holy oil. One friend went up to this ''angel'' and started stroking its wings, which was really just her petting thin air. We were just kidding around for the most part and didn't actually believe these angles were there, but after stroking the air a bit she turned her hand over, and it was SHINING and absolutely slimed over with what appeared to be oil. Instead of being comforted by the possible presence of an actual angel, her face turned white - as did the rest of ours. At that point we weren't sure if that was a confirmation of a holy presence or a sign to be afraid.
The worst happenings of the night took place on the wash-house side of the partition, which was just a flimsy fold up wall that blocked no sounds from either side. We started hearing things on the other side shifting around and occasionally bumping into other things. The worst were her dad's tools and tool kits because they were metal. Around 2:00 am things hadn't moved in a little while, so we checked it out. A couple of drawers on the tool box were open. Some towels had fallen to the floor, and other things just appeared to be sitting in places where a person wouldn't put them. There was nowhere anybody could hide, and the door into the wash house was on our side, so nobody could come in and out to play tricks on us, but one thing caught our eye in particular. Her mom's table with her religious memorabilia including a bible, a rosary, a candle, and a Jesus figurine. This table appeared to have been left alone, but for the rest of the night it was the Jesus figurine that tortured us the most (unfortunately. )
