Hey Ollie I know about the farmhouse you are talking about. It was built in the mid 1900's by the Ester family. The people living there were Mary and Horace Ester and Earl Ester (they had three kids but I could only find one's name) in the 1960's Mary passed away from natural causes and the rest of the family moved out.
Since the land the house was on didn't have any roads nearby it never got bought and it stayed there for around 30 years until
the city tore it down in the 80's or 90's. I know all this because my father grew up nearby and my grandpa knew these people.|
Also Mary Ester is buried
in the Germantown west cemetery.|

Back in the early 1960's when I was around 11 years old my cousins and I discovered an old abandoned house. Way back in the woods between eby road and Carlisle pike (rt123) near twin creek there used to be an old farm house. There was no way to get there by vehicle. There was an old long Lane that ran off of eby road but it was so old and rutted that it was impossible to drive back there. We often played in those woods and came upon this place one afternoon. It was an old two story farm house with an old barn and an old rusted vehicle inside it. The place had been deserted and ransacked for a long time. We went in and explored. There was old broken down furniture and trash everywhere. We found an old box of love letters written between a couple named John and Mary. On an old cracked mirror on the wall with the words ''love you john'' had been painted in red.
At the time at our age this did not mean much to us. We continued to explore and look for something valuable you know like gold or lots of money. We found nothing but when my cousin started up some old stairs and I was telling him not to go because the stairs were old and broken we did hear something. A loud noise came from up there like a door being slammed and muffled scream at the same time. We ran from there and told our parents and they took us for kids with an imagination. We later went back a few times but stayed our distance and never entered it again. I went back looking for the old place years later after I had grown up. I could never find even where it had been. It had been located not far from the creek. The whole area now is owned by the conservancy. I imagine it was torn down long ago. After getting over being scared curiosity of this matter meant little to us at the time. Now I would sure like to know the history of that place. Haunted or not this story is absolutely the truth. I am sure there have to be other people who knew of this house and who lived there.
