One day when I was in my attic, I heard a ghostly whisper. I think it said, ''Michael,'' which is my name. For as long as I lived there similar occurrences happened at least once a week. The house I live in is recently built, and I think it might have been on a burial ground, and that's why the ghost is here.|
The ghost seems to be a little boy that died young. I live near the Golconda Cemetery near Lusk Creek, so a graveyard is very close to my house, and someone
may have been buried near there but not in the cemetery.|

I lived in a house less than 2 blocks from this location. It too was haunted. There is a very old Riverside Cemetery nearby and I have heard rumors that before the levee was built up hangings took place down by Lusk Creek.
My home had at least 2 very distinct spirits who were also acknowledged by some previous tenants. The first of which was a young boy. I could hear him running around the house and bouncing a ball. He also liked to roll up the window shade at the bottom of the stairs.
The second spirit was that of adult male. There was a very masculine presence when he was about. I called him my cowboy because I could distinctly hear the sound of his boots pacing about. I always felt safe when he was around as if he was protecting us.
