Ogden, Kansas Ghost Pictures

While driving around one evening, a friend and I chose to stop at the St. Patrick Cemetery. It was around midnight, and since it was close to Halloween we were just talking about ghost and such. Her three-year old daughter had been asleep in the truck, and since our husbands were deployed we had no real place to be. We had parked outside the gate for a while when her daughter began laughing and talking as if there were another child in my SUV. We both looked very solemnly at her and asked what she was laughing at and what was she talking about. Her response was ''that boy''. We proceeded to look around a bit because what boy would be out this late, and the parental instinct in each of us wanted to keep this child safe. We looked around, but we could not see anyone, so we asked more and more questions of her. She acted as though we were the blindest people on earth. She said ''right there''. She was literally pointing just outside of my SUV. We decided to leave just then, but we continued to ask questions of her. We wanted to make sure she was not imagining anything. She told us he was ''William,'' and that he was her age, and he dressed funny. She also mentioned that he was sick, with a tummy ache.

One day I returned to the cemetery that I had pushed out of my mind. There was a very tempting reason. While wandering around for my ''reason'' my husband was wandering around the stones. He called me over to something that looked interesting to him. We had found something. It was a grave stone with a slightly different spelling. However, I assume it would be pronounced William. He was a three-year old boy. He died in May of 1876. This would fit the cholera epidemic that so violently tore through the area, leaving devastation in its wake. For those unaware, cholera is a very intense stomach virus. It very quickly dehydrates and makes you ill with diarrhea and vomiting, much like the stomach flu. It is enough to make any skeptic uneasy. - Ghost picture submitted by Tina
