We were traveling to visit my brother and his family who lived in Indiana at the time. Since we lived in Florida, we decided to break the drive up and stay overnight about halfway in Tennessee. I found a bed and breakfast in Spring Hill (Twin Maples, I think that was the name). We arrived at an old home in an historic district, unloaded our bags, and settled into the upstairs bedrooms. There were two bedrooms upstairs. One of the other upstairs rooms had been converted into a bathroom.
When we went to bed, I fell asleep right away, and sometime during the night, I had a very vivid dream. In the dream I was the woman who lived in this house, my husband occupied the bedroom adjacent to my room (the one now converted into a bathroom). I was terrified of my husband (extremely so) and woke up from this dream shaky and about to scream. I had the same dream again that night, but when I awoke from this second dream, I knew that our last name was Peters.
Later on, I looked up the name Peters and found that a doctor by this name had lived in this area during the 1800's. Here is a snippet about him:
Ferguson Hall is most noted for an incident that transpired there in 1863. After the Battle of Murfreesboro, Confederate General Bragg's troops drew back to occupy more secure bases to the South. Gen. Earl Van Dorn, a native of Mississippi, was commander of Bragg's cavalry. He brought his troops to Spring Hill, and chose Ferguson Hall (called the Chairs Home at the time) as his headquarters. Whether his reputation as a "womanizer" was true or not has been the subject of much discussion over the years but one of his affairs brought about his death. It was rumored that he was carrying on an affair with Jesse McKissack Peters, the wife of Dr. George B. Peters, local physician, and it was commented that Mrs. Peters could be seen coming and going from the Cheairs house at odd hours. Dr. Peters became aware of these rumors and on the morning of 7 May 1863 was waiting at the house when Gen. Van Dorn arrived. Details of the events of that day are few but at the conclusion of it all, Van Dorn lay dead on the floor and Dr. Peters had fled the area. Evidence collected by army investigators seemed to point to justifiable murder and the doctor was never brought to trial.
We had taken some pictures in the home while we were there and one of the pictures that we had taken contains what looks like bubbles.
We stayed at the same bed and breakfast on the return trip with no unusual happenings.
