Petersburg, Virginia Ghost Sightings
The house I live in on West Street has a resident ghost or two. They are harmless. One is an officer in the military during the Civil War. His name is John. He and his wife Hester lived here. His activities include rattling doorknobs, knocking on doors, and roaming from one side of the room to the other.|
He is not an evil entity. On occasion my husband's grandfather will appear. I can see his beautiful head of white hair. I have never been scared to be in
