2011 Ghost Stories
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
this website as references.

to bother you again but if you didnít get my earlier email my name is
Carter I am a 7th grader and a
amateur paranormal investigator i have read three of your books which are some
of my favorite books. I have
read which are Weird Oregon Weird Washington and ghosts critters and sacred
places of Oregon and Washington 3. And
this is not for a report but for curiosity what, are some of your tips for ghost
hunting? Have you ever investigated
anywhere in Tigard or Beaverton Oregon that I should check out with my friend
who likes paranormal things or subjects. I
have been to one haunted place a lot of the haunted mcmeenimens or how ever you
spell that so please Write me back hope you have a great day.
Sorry it has taken me so long to answer your email. I hope you forgive me,
but I have been very busy lately.
Since you're still a little on the young side, I cannot give you too much advice
on going to too many places, out of respect for your parents. At
this point, you should stick to some public places. I find ghost hunting
works well in daylight as well as in the evenings. Maybe better sometimes.
I recommend against going to graveyards, particularly at night. Far too
many strange (living) people hang out there.
The McMenamins restaurants and hotels are a good place to start visiting. A lot
of the hotels, like the Grand Lodge in Forest Grove have ghost log books a the
front desk. People who experience things there write them down at the end
of their visit. See if there is a paranormal group in the Beaverton area
that you like. I have several links to groups on my website. Look at
the group, see if they welcome younger investigators, and get your parentsí
permission to visit them. That might be the best thing to do at this
And keep reading.
It's okay Mr. Davis thank you for writing back to me.
your books are my favorites because of how short the stories are and they have
really given me a quick escape through my parentsí divorce. I hope you
come out with a new book soon. Another thing I like about your books is the
history behind some of the ghosts or legends.
My teacher makes fun of me for all the odd facts about Oregon i know and
calls me Bing man because once he says something about local history it goes
into how mount angel has the biggest hairball at 2.5 pounds.
My grandma also likes your books when we go on road trips we always go to
the places that are haunted well thank you for your response Mr. Davis hope you
have a good day.

Found your writings about paranormal & ghost sightings, etc. I have
been seeing aberrations for nearly 2 years since my grandson was born. He has a
tremendous spirit surrounding him. I've seen 1 several times & 1 other just
once. I am always slightly fearful when they appear but surrender to their
presence & usually sleep well soon afterwards.
I am interested in anything else you may know or could share.

I was reading your ghost stories last evening after doing research on
abberations. It was late & I didn't have my reading glasses on. I just read
& re-looked at your site-what I discovered is unbelievable! My grandson
mentioned in the last email is part Alaskan native & part Italian. I am
totally stoked about the night visions I've had since he was born now. I hope
you've received my emails!
Hello Giovanni's Daughter
Thanks for your emails. Sorry I did not respond sooner. I have
become notorious for answering emails late. About your visions.
You said they began when your grandson was born. Did anything else happen
around the same time? A family death, injury, sickness? Anything
else? It could be that his birth any any other serious event could have
released a latent ability you had. Or it could have attracted a spirit to
you and him.
I suggest you start looking at books on psychic ability, to see if what is
happening to you falls into this category. Please visit the links in my website,
and see if any of the paranormal groups listed there have had experiences like
you have experienced. That might be best. At least you do not seem
to be too frightened by what is happening to you, which is a good sign.
A few months before any visions, I had a traumatic end to a relationship
that was very special to me. It ended abruptly without closure. This was during
the time my daughter had moved back home with me to save money during her
pregnancy. We spent a lot of time together as she was high risk and not working.
I would speak to the baby through her stomach quite frequently. He is extremely close
to me and I to him. We speak without words most often.
Shortly after the first vision I met a unique Native American and had a
most remarkable, heartfelt conversation with him over the course of an hour on
the streets of Seattle near Pike Place Market. Once he realized I wanted
nothing of him, he did energy work around my heart and my hand. I left with
his business card in my pocket and actually slept in my jeans that night;
business card in place. My 2nd vision occurred this night.
A few months later great public tragedy occurred in this man's family in
Seattle. Their lives and tragedy have been played out all over the
news for months. I have yet to contact him despite his offer to meet with me and
my grandson when I met him over a year ago. I felt he had so much of his own
sadness and loss he was dealing with. Some day perhaps........
I will again look at the links on your site. Thank you again for your time and

SUBJECT: Great talk last night at
I mentioned to your wife that a location that might be a good place to
check out would be the site of the old Portland municipal auditorium. However, I
couldn't remember if it was on the site where the Keller presently stands or if
it was at a different location. I checked, and it was the old Civic Auditorium
which was renovated in 1968 and later renamed the Keller Auditorium.
The original structure was built in 1917. During
the influenza pandemic of 1918 Portland's mortuaries and the city morgue had so
many bodies that the basement of the old Civic Auditorium was used as a morgue. I
don't know if there have been any reports of activity there, but it might be a
good place to check.
Personally, I'm very skeptical of ghosts, apparitions, etc. Although I do live
in a house that was built in 1906 and there will be times when I'm sitting on
the couch in the living room and I'll be surrounded by a cold spot. It could be
just due to the spotty insulation in the place, but who knows?

SUBJECT: Orb Pictures
Thought you might like to see these pictures. From May 30th at the sunset
pioneer cemetery in Tigard. The orbs
in 003 and 007 were both in the same area and look like faces when you expand
It was my first ghost hunting experiment. When I first got there during
the day to check around, one grave in particular drew me almost directly to it.
I stood looking at it and noticed that the day of this young personís death
was exactly 100 years agoÖto the dayÖ(pic #14). Strange huh?....
to share a story?
