Connecticut Cases

Cemeteries

'Cemeteries' includes any and all places of burial. Cemeteries, graveyards, mausoleums, and crypts are all common here.

 

Black Hill Cemetery

Plainfield, CT - March 12, 2020

After a business meeting, Chris and David decided to go check out a local cemetery. Black Hill Cemetery has been around since the 1700s and is still active for burials.

There is not much information out there about Black Hill Cemetery. We only know it was formed in the 1700s because of some of the engravings on the headstones. It wasn’t a typical investigation, but more of a curiosity.


We didn’t have any subjective experiences here and we didn’t find any evidence. That doesn’t mean that Black Hill Cemetery has no spirits, but rather that we did not stay very long due to the cold. Regardless, we decided to check it out and cross it off our list and took some nice pictures during our visit.

Plan:

Case Closed

As of right now, there is no interest to return to Black Hill Cemetery. It was a neat little visit, but that’s all. Unless something drives us to revisit, the case is considered closed.

Gunntown Cemetery

Naugatuck, CT - September 09, 2016

I took a trip to Gunntown Cemetery to see what the hype was about. I found myself in the Naugatuck area and decided to stop by. According to the Warrens, Gunntown Cemetery is an extremely active place for paranormal activity. Claims range from seeing orbs, feelings of being watched, to the spirit of a little girl who plays hide and seek with visitors.

Subjective Claims:

David

David:

No subjective experiences of any kind.

Objective Findings:

Investigators: David Bray

Photos:

No photographic evidence was found.

Audio:

No audio evidence was found.

Video:

No video evidence was found.

Assessment:

Paranormal Level: Grade 0 - All subjective paranormal activity has been debunked and no evidence has been collected for documentation. There are no objective paranormal findings of any kind.

This trip only happened because I was in the area at the time. It was around dusk when I arrived. I could tell as soon a I entered that my expectations would be let down. The cemetery is very small and is surrounded by houses on two or three sides. If this cemetery is as active as they say, wouldn't all the neighbors be aware of it? I noticed that people left children's toys on some of the graves. Upon closer inspection, they were graves of young girls. I'm assuming that no one really knows who the little girl is who supposedly haunts the cemetery, so they guess and leave items on random markers.

I did not witness anything out of the ordinary during my visit there and spent a good amount of time with an audio recorder connecting with possible spirits, to no avail. The worst thing about the trip - insects. I cannot stress enough how annoying the gnats are that encompass the cemetery.

Plan:

Case Closed

I have genuinely no interest in returning to Gunntown Cemetery unless I'm in the area again. Perhaps a full investigation with the team will bring different results.

 

Union Cemetery

Easton, CT - November 18, 2018

We drove down to the famous Union Cemetery in Easton, CT to see what the hype was about. The Warrens claim this is one of the most haunted cemeteries in the country. The "White Lady" apparition frequents here, with some theories speculating that she is Harriet Seeley.

The mystery of "Red Eyes" is also a reported claim: a mysterious figure that glares out from the woods at visitors.

 

Subjective Claims:

David & Ruby

David:

A female spirit was trying to connect with him to locate her grave.

Heard a woman singing or humming a song, but as soon as he approached where the voice was coming from, it stopped.

Ruby:

Heard a woman singing or humming a song as well.

Objective Findings:

Investigators: David Bray, Ruby L.

Photos:

No photographic evidence was found.

Audio:

No audio evidence was found.

Video:

No video evidence was found.

Assessment:

Paranormal Level: Grade 0 - All subjective paranormal activity has been debunked and no evidence has been collected for documentation. There are no objective paranormal findings of any kind.

Union Cemetery did not live up to its hype, but frankly, we've found that a lot with most places. We found Harriet Seeley's grave marker early on, but nothing about it spoke to me or Ruby about it being special. It seems she was just a normal woman who died, like anyone else. Urban legends can do a lot of damage to people's reputations.

The woman who was trying to get me to locate her grave was unsuccessful. Many of the grave markers are so old, you can't read them anymore. Her name was Mary, but I couldn't pinpoint a last name. However, Ruby, myself, and two others there did hear a woman singing. It was very odd.

As for "Red Eyes," we didn't witness anything of the sort.

Plan:

Case Closed

Nothing to see here, people. For us, Union Cemetery was a bust. We couldn't gather any objective evidence whatsoever.
