A few days after that, I saw this little girl right outside my bedroom. Thinking it was one of the girls I went to see what they needed. I got all the way to the door, and she vanished. I started questioning my daughter about this new friend she made. She told me her name is Emily, and she is the one that made that knocking sound that night, but it did not come from the guest room. She was at the foot of the bed and knocked. I was freaked out for
a couple of nights after that.|

My parents bought their first house on Bond Street in 1954. After we moved in 1964 they rented it out until they sold it in 1976. As a young child, I had a total of four ghosts appear to me on two different occasions. The first time there were three: a woman and two men. The men looked like ''pirates'' because of the clothes they wore. The woman was a heavy set African American wearing a brown dress, white apron, and a cloth on her head. She looked like Mammie from Gone With the Wind (or Mrs. Butterworth. ) They were very friendly and happy. It was a positive experience. However, they invited me to follow them, but I told them I could not. I was about four years old at the time.
The second time was different. A pretty woman with long wavy hair wearing a white nightgown appeared to me. Although she was nice looking, she made ''scary' faces at me. I was very frightened. She told me if I followed her she would stop scaring me. I attempted to follow her but decided against it. I hid my face in my pillow and covered myself under my blanket. Why I did not run to my parents room, I had no idea. I was probably too scared to move.
Years later, whenever a tenant moved out, my parents returned to the house to clean it up. We kids would accompany them on occasion. The other kids in the neighborhood would tell us the house was haunted. Evidently, there were other stories. I am fifty-six years old now and still remember my experience very vividly. I have driven past the house and have been tempted to stop and talk to the current owners, but decide against it every time.
