In recent weeks it has come
to my attention that certain parties are using my ghost stories and those of my
contributors as references for their own commercial enterprises. If you or
someone you know is writing a book on ghosts in the Pacific Northwest, PLEASE
DO NOT!!! copy or use the following stories or any other materials within

Baby Graves, Washington
Hello, my name is Nick J. and I saw your list of haunted places
in Washington. I noticed you had some info on the Baby Graves in Pasco. I
visited that spot not long ago and several friends and I experienced some rather
weird things out there at night.
I'm not sure if this is what you meant when you said to email you any further
info that I might have.
So aboutt 4 weeks ago, 3 of my friends and I went out there at about 11 p.m. and
set out with a camera and a sensitive voice recorder. We are all 16 or 17, and
I'm sure if the land owner knew we were out there, he probably would have shot
us (yes, he will shoot at you...). Well, I've visited that spot several times
before, and every time I do, I will bring a few teddy bears and some flowers and
place them on graves. All of this was done in the daylight though. So anyways,
we enter through the gate, and the first place I decide to visit is the
fenced-in tombstone that is above the 2 brothers. There has been 2 bears in that
fenced area for ages now, and no one disturbs it. I place a rose on the
tombstone and walk away. We set up the voice recorders at various tombstones,
leave them be. While my friend is taking pictures, my other friend and I are
placing the teddy bears on various graves. We all meet up at the fenced in
tombstone, where I notice the rose gone. My friends swear to this day that they
never tampered with anything that is to follow.
We start out on asking questions to the tombstones and unmarked graves (like you
would see in "Ghost Hunters" on the Sci-Fi channel on Wednesdays. I
notice that several of the bears are missing. As I look around my friend kind
of... shrieks, so to speak. He had just taken a picture and had looked at it
when he saw what looked like a teddy bear (it was wearing a blue navy sailor
suit) in the distance. All he could see is the head/face, but at least 8 feet in
the air. Now, I know it seems hard to believe, but this is all true. I'm not
sure why it would be 8 feet in the air though, as there is only babies in that
grave, aside from a very very few amount of parents.
Later, I find that all the roses I placed were somehow placed at the gate next
to my friends' car, the petals all ripped off the stem and in what looked like a
crooked circle. This particular event scared me the most. The next rather creepy
experience we had is something that has been rumored for some time. People say
you can see the faces (not skull's, but actual faces) of babies who are buried
in unmarked graves late at night with a dim amount of light. We thought we saw
one, but it turned out to be a small mound of dirt. It seemed to have been
freshly dug and set, and when I started digging with my hands, I found a bear.
The one with the Blue Navy Sailor Suit.
After that I decided we'd had enough, and decided to leave. (The car ride home
was rather eerie as we played no music and didn't talk while there was no
moonlight and nothing to been seen except from our headlights) The next day, we
listened to the voice recorders and the most chilling sound came from one of
them. It sounded like a baby crying. We had no idea where it could have
come from. We didn't hear coyote's, and we personally didn't hear anything
except our footsteps and ourselves talk to each other.
I haven't gone back yet, but I plan on going hopefully either tonight or
tomorrow, as today is my birthday and I wanted a good thrill as a birthday
I don't know much about the land owner, other than he is very temperamental when
it comes to the graves and WILL shoot towards you if he sees you. If you're
lucky, you'll just get yelled at.
Well, this is something my friends and I experienced the last time we were
there. I hope this finds it's way to you and that it interests you. Everything
you have read is true.

Subject: Military Housing
live in 1905 military (officer) housing in Hammond, OR. It seems as if all
of the homes around the parade ground might have a ghost or two. After
moving in June 2008 and experiencing several odd things going on in my home, I
talked to neighbors regarding my experiences. All have had different
but the "same". I have not spoken of the ghost in my home for
over six month, as it makes for more happenings.
you have any information on the Ft Stevens Military Houses in Hammond, OR 97121?
If so, please share.
for the delay in getting a response to you. I am sure that it seems like
forever. Ross Allison of AGHOST forwarded your question to me because I
have been in the paranormal 'biz' for about as long as he has and I also wrote a
book called, Haunted Astoria a couple of years ago. As part of that book,
several of us, including Ross stayed at the Officer's Inn B&B, near where
you live now. I heard a few stories, some of which might relate to your
area you are living in, as you know had several residences for military
personnel. It is no longer there, but at one time, there was a hospital
nearby. Many of the residences were for doctors or other medical
personnel. In addition to the hospital, there was also a stockade, a
military jail in the vicinity too. It may well be that there are some
psychic remnants wandering around the old parade ground, and the vacant lots
where the stockade and hospital were. In addtion, I would find it likely
that some of the medical personnel might have 'brought something home' from the
hospital with themselves in the past. And it might still be there.
the people living in these buildings were mostly officers and senior sergeants,
the life was not always genteel. I spoke with the inkeeper at the
Officer's Inn once. She told me that she had a visitor once, who lived in the
building as a child. Her family was so cash strapped that they hung sheets
over the windows because they could not afford curtains. So other families
there might have had similiar trials in their lives, which could have led to
some kind of imprint on the buildings.
more details from you, I am afraid that I cannot help much more. If you
are looking for more detailed history on your house itself, you might start by
asking for information from the Fort Steven's State Park folks. Oh, I
suggest you do not mention ghosts to them; they are a bit negative on the
subject. I hope I have helped, if only a little, and they you will email
me later to let me know if you find out any more information.

What you do is wonderful, but stop messing with the
supernatural world. You don't want to have a demon following you every
where. Do not let that happen, or your spirit will walk the earth forever. If
you want to share the world with ghosts, first you must under stand why I put
them on the planet. DO NOT!!!!!!!
They live, they..... are living things to.
to share a story?
