Cary, Illinois Ghost Sightings
My friends and I walked through the woods around 1:00. While we were walking, my friend saw a small guy run through, so we dashed out of the woods, and we never saw it again.|

My experience happened years ago from October 1978 through July 1979. Not in Cary but in nearby Oakwood Hills. We bought a house in October 1978. It was a long day the day we moved in, and we had not placed curtains in our bedroom window. During the night, my little dog, which was lying on the floor by my side, started growling. I told him to hush, and he kept growling. I looked over to the bedroom door, and the light from the outside moon shined in, and I was able to see two children by the entrance of the door. The little girl looked to be about ten or twelve years old. She had blond ringlet curls and was wearing a dress with blue trim, dated maybe 1800 era. There was a boy on her left, maybe eight years old. He was shorter than her, and he had dark brown hair like a buster brown haircut. He also was wearing dark brown suit era of 1800.
I was scared and could not move. I nudged my male friend with my elbow and said ''someone is by the door. '' He jumped up and threw a pillow at the doorway, ran to the door entrance, and turned on the light. Immediately I ran to check on my two small children. My son was five, and my daughter only two. Both were sleeping. The next day my sister and her family came over. I forgot about what happened the night before. During the months of living there I would hear the wind whistling through the kitchen windows.
One day I was taking a bath with the bathroom door closed. My son was at school in first grade, and my daughter was taking a nap. It was around 1:00 pm, and as I was taking a bath, the door knob kept moving. It was an old fashion clear round door knob. It kept juggling, so I called out, and no one answered, so I got out of the tub thinking someone was in the house. I wrapped a towel around me and looked around, and no one there. My two-year-old daughter was still sleeping. One night my son called out ''mommy, mommy! Come here. '' He was just ready to go to bed for the night. The light was on, and he said'' there was a man by me, and he was tickling me. When I got there the ''man'' was gone. I became a Christian a few months after moving into that house.
The house was maybe a cottage converted to a house, and below it was an old cellar entrance from the back of the house. It was dark and eerie, so I never stayed long in it. At night I would pray for protection for myself and my family. I prayed for protection over my family during the time we lived there. Thankfully we moved out of the house the end of summer of 1979.
One more thing to add, the first late spring/summer in 1979 there were these bugs outside that flew, looked like little gnats, and when they bite, they drew blood out, like small little ''hickeys. '' I never saw bites like that before or after we moved out. Because of the experience in that house, I believe whoever lived there before was into witchcraft or the Ouija board bringing in the demonic. I did drive by the house recently, and there are people living in the house. The house on the outside looks the same. I always wondered whether anyone else had experienced strange things at that house.
