My parents moved into their house in 1976. I was about 7 or 8 years old. I can remember hearing 3 men in the basement talking. They would sometimes come upstairs to check on my sibling and myself. They are very friendly.|
In 1992 my 4 year old niece met one of them he introduce himself as George. He told my niece that his other friend name is soldier and soldier is not a nice guy, but he never said the other friend name.
There is other family spirits
that lurks in the basement but they are all our guardian angels.|

I grew up in one of the oldest homes in New Haven. The house was built in 1870 and is situated on Elk Street. The house was filled with historical architecture and character but also what I called ''friendly spirits''. Anyone who came over always felt a presence. You know the kind that makes the hairs stand up on your skin, especially going up the stairway and into the upstairs hallway. Myself, sisters, and friends all have witnessed things that couldn't be explained. My first experience was my 6th birthday party where a friend of mine was staying overnight. We were playing with my Barbie dolls when suddenly my bedroom light went out, and there in my bedroom doorway stood a black mass in the shape of a being. We couldn't make out any details but could tell it was a man. We obviously both screamed and tore down the steps to find my parents and their friends playing cards. When we told them what happened they thought it was just our imagination.
Around the age of 11 my sister and I were home alone. Our basement would often fill with water, so we had to use a sub-pump. That night we had to unplug the pump, and we both went down to the basement together. Upon going down the steps we heard 2 men's voices in the back room, but the voices were muffled, and we couldn't make out what they were saying. When we looked into the back room there we saw the shadows of 2 men on the wall, and could distinctly see that they both were wearing the old top hats. We freaked out, ran upstairs, and ran outside across the street to our neighbors house. The neighbor was a police officer at the time and did a search of the basement and the windows outside. Nothing was found, and once again it was chalked up as ''kids just hearing things. ''
When I turned 13 my step-father passed away in our home. After that, ''energy'' really picked up in the house. Things would move from different locations or just plain go missing, and we would find them in a place that was right in front of our eyes at a later date. Lights would flicker on and off. Doors would open, and the feeling someone was always watching you became more intense. I had some friends over one day when we had a half day of school. We decided it would be cool to play with a Ouija board. Within minutes knocking on the door happened with no one there. An old stove in the back room that was unplugged began heating up, and the phone rang with no one on the other end, all seconds apart from each other. Many of my friends there that day witnessed this and knew it was not the imagination of kids.
