for weeks, and I tore my room apart looking for it. Annoyed, I said, ''Ruth, if you have the brush, will you please give it back?'' The next morning I woke up and found the brush next to me on my bed.
My son started to complain about a man watching him in the corner of his room at night. He said he wore overalls and had dark eyes. I never saw the man. After praying in my son's room one night, he did not see him again. A friend was in the basement
a year later working on the sump pump and saw a man watching him in the corner. He described him the same way. He knew nothing about our experiences in
the house, but he came up from the basement and said ''did you know your house is haunted''?|
I did some research and discovered my house was built in the 1870s during the second wave of settlement to Morton. Many Mennonites were here at the time. I found an old picture of some period dress for Mennonites, and what I saw ''Ruth'' wearing is similar to the woman in the picture.
