Let me start out by saying I really don't know much history about my house other than its a french style farm house built a little over a century ago.
Anyways. I have been hearing sounds in my house since I was a little girl, like the floor creaking as if some one is walking down the hall, and in my brothers room (dont ask why I slept in the sometimes) if you were really quiet you could swear you were hearing music. I don't really know how to explain the music, it sounded a little old fashioned like an orchestra or something like that. That was all that I have experienced.
I now have a 3 year old and his room is my brothers old room. He would wake up in the middle of the night crying as if something scared him terribly (mothers know that cry I'm talking about) and I would run in and try to comfort him and he would just say "scary mask scary mask". Recently he has been in his room by himself and he starts talking to himself or some one and he told my mother that he's talking to his friend "goby". I have never heard of a 3 year old having an imaginary friend.
I really haven't thought much about it until about a month ago I was talking to my brother and I brought up the creaking sounds and music and he looked at me shocked and asked "did you see her?" He told me that ever since we had moved into that house when we were little he would hear the floor creak and music in his room and then what he told me caught me off guard. He told me he has seen (and still sees) a woman in the hallways near our bedrooms. He tells me she looks Native American but that's all he has told me.
About a week ago I decided to see if I could get this supposed ghost to show me her face or make a sound or something (I'm quite skeptical) so I said things like "is there anyone there" or "who are you." But got nothing. I went downstairs after putting my son to bed and was watching tv when suddenly I heard a sound like someone was banging on the walls... It was a very even two banging sound and it did this twice.
I panicked and called the cops, had an officer search the house and look around outside. And of course there was no one. It takes a lot to scare me to the point of calling the cops. After he left I just got angry and flat out said out loud to thin air "whoever you are get out of my ****ing house!"
I don't really know what else to do. I have probably left out details and what not I just really need some advice...
