Ghost Stories from Occuret

Poor Gentry on 2016-06-07

This is my story. It happened some years ago, maybe in the early 1990's, and lasted for several months. I can't really put a time line to it. One night I heard heavy breathing coming up the stairs, and then a roaring noise in my head. There was a shadow silhouette standing in the bedroom door. I...

Roylynx - I've learned that there were Chinese market gardens in the area. So far as I am concerned, all mysteries have been solved. Thanks for your help.

Roylynx - No, I hadn't thought of ghost wonderer's. That is very interesting what you wrote because my husband and his first wife built the house and lived in it for quite sometime, with her father. When he died, (the one Jennie has told you about), then my husband's father moved in with them. Grandfather "A", had the bedroom that Jennie tells about. Grandfather "B", died and he had the bedroom that my husband and I later slept in (the bedroom where I would get my visits). My husband and both his parents migrated to Australia from a foreign country. Also, his wife and both her parents migrated to Australia from the same foreign country. No it was not China or Japan 😊.

The Chinese gentleman still remains a mystery. None of us have Chinese relatives. I will do some research and see if I can find out where the Chinese communities were in that area.

Thank you so much for your feed back on my story. You've given me so much more to think about.

Roylynx - Aha! So there are ghosts in cyber space, messing with our emails or trying to get messages through to us. 😆 😆 😆

I don't understand the meaning of your question, "Do you know what time the "event" happens?" It would always happen at night, the bedroom was dark so I couldn't see the time. It would wake me up, so it wasn't happening as I was dropping off to sleep. It would happen randomly, maybe once or twice a week, sometimes once a fortnight. There was no set pattern for them. They started around the early 1990's and lasted for a few years.

I've done some research on the clothes the two men were wearing, and I have to correct myself. It wasn't convict clothes the Chinese man was wearing, but Chinese peasant clothes. The young man was wearing late 1890's "gentry" clothes... I don't want to upset him and have him correct this by calling his clothes, farmer's clothes! But he had definitely outgrown them.

I wonder if there is a connection between the date of his clothes, and when he started visiting me, 100 years differences.

Tweed and Miracles- Oh, the plot does thicken, as you, Miracles, say you did not change "Farmer" to "Gentry". Gentry is not a word I would use. But it would be the word that the young man would use to describe himself. I definitely got the vibes from him that he was a proud/snobbish young man.

No, Tweed, we do not live in the same house now. We don't even live in the same State. Maybe "Gentry Snob" is out there in cyber space, editing my emails lol.

I'm like you, I like to question and work out answers to ghost encounters. This is why I stuck to the facts in telling my story, rather than saying what I thought it could all mean. One thing that puzzles me, is the fact that the characters showed themselves in clear bright colors. I always thought ghosts were suppose to be gray images.

Thanks for your comment. I enjoyed reading it.

Wish-Not - No, Gentry was not my husbands nephew. I titled my story "Poor Farmer", and it was changed to "Poor Gentry".

I'm thinking that the young man was the Son of a land owner, perhaps the Son of an ex convict that had served his years of punishment and was granted a small parcel of land. I was given the impression that he was a very proud young man, who had at one time lived a wealthy life. His companion, I felt might of been a convict slave to the young man's family. I could only trace the history of the area our house was at, was a chicken farm at one time. But I don't know if it would of been a chicken farm in the era of the clothes the two figures were wearing.

Yes, I found it very interesting that when he accidentally entered the nephew's bedroom, he never appeared again. It tells me that he liked terrorizing females.

My daughter plans on telling her part of this story and sending it in, but I don't know when that will be.

Thank you so much for commenting on my story.
