I lived on Stanolind near Rusk around 2006/07. I started experiencing weird things that couldn't be explained. My youngest son was one year old at the time, and every day when I would put him down for a nap, I'd turn his light off and his fan on, but when I'd get him up the light would be on and the fan off. He wasn't old enough to reach the switches or crawl out of his crib. One morning when I got up, all the cabinet doors and drawers were open in the kitchen. I called my husband and asked him what he was looking for and why he'd just leave it like that. He told me he was running late for work that day and didn't even have time to go in the kitchen.
I could smell cigarette smoke at odd times and feel someone sitting on my bed. After a while of us living there the previous owner came by looking for a package that was mailed there by mistake. He flat out asked me if I'd seen the ghost. I told him no, but I had a feeling there was one. He said his wife and daughter both have seen a man in a cowboy hat standing in the hall smoking a cigarette. I did the whole ''go to the light'' thing, and he quit bothering us for awhile, but he never left.

Comment by Carolla: Hello Kim. I am stunned to have come across your post on the Stanolind House. I am the daughter you mentioned. I was in high school the years we lived in that home and several of my girlfriends refused to sleep over with me because of their own experiences in the house.
The gentleman sure made his presence known. I remember my teenage brother getting questioned as to if he was smoking cigarettes only because my father was so desperate to find an explanation to the very fresh smell of cigarette smoke.
Comment by Kim: I got chills when I saw your response Carolla. Please feel free to email me if you'd ever like to talk: dustyheat @gmail. Com.
