The Graveyard 2


Here's another on this graveyard I went to as a teen. I was 15 and my sister, her boyfriend, my boyfriend and I all decided to go to the graveyard since mindy's boyfriend was new to the area. My boyfriend was the only one who had a car at the time and was driving a huge van so he met us at our house.

We give mindy's boyfriend, nick, the background of the whole place and showed him the old graves. He thought it was cool and we talked for hours about the history, then on to other things nearby like the Lyke's house (I'll write about that another time). Now the fun part, as we were getting ready to leave, we were helping mike back the van up (the graveyard is in the woods), mindy and I were standing by a small tree telling him to come our way as we thought it was clear, this was the only open area there to back out.

As he backed out, he got stuck on a headstone. how this happened I do not know because mindy and I searched and inspected to make sure that there was no obstacles in the way, either we are both blind as bats or that thing appeared out of nowhere! Then weird things started to happen, things being thrown at us, seeing things. I won't really say anything about the cold spots there because it was early spring and we still had a nip in the air.

Well after about an hour, we finally got off that headstone, begged for forgiveness of the dead, and left. After that, I took super extra care to make sure nothing was near to get stuck on.

Thanks for sharing another great story. I think I would be asking for forgiveness as well, then hightailed it out of there. Again, the cemetary is one place I just don't care to horse around in. My mom would tell me stories about how she and my aunt would go into the cemetary (just down the street from my grandmother's house), and nothing ever happened to them. Not for me.

Thanks again for the story

did you seriously run over a tombstone?! I don't blame whatever was throwing stuff at you! I'd be mad to if I were sleeping just fine and then someone came and crushed me!

As a veteran of LOTS of cemetery mistakes, I just loved this story. While the entity(ies) "chased you off" by throwing rocks and things that were virtually harmless to you at the time, it was obviously making it's point. Very clearly. While a mile long walk down a wooded path into a seemingly spooky place does not always appeal to us, it is still sacred ground. I do not know if this is with all religions (and if I am inadvertently stepping on anyone's toes, or offending them I am honestly sorry) and backgrounds, but... I do not think this will be a lesson quickly forgotten. 😊Thank you haleybug

i don't see why any one else would be there as it is a place no one visits, and it is isolated. At the time the only people who went there were teenagers and most vandalized that place and defiled the graves. And as far as I know they still do, and that is the only thing I can think of that would make them want to get people out and now as an adult I see why, I would feel the same way.

IT sounds to me like you might be leaving something out. I think the stone coming out of nowhere shows that someone was trying to get your attention and was mad that you still didn't listen.

mainly rocks and things like that. They weren't thrown hard enough to hurt but enough to tell us to get out. Many bad things happened in that particular area that make me iffy to go now, as I'm afraid to bring an unwelcome "friend" haome.

Can you please be more clear about what was being thrown at you? This seems like a critical piece of information just to gloss over.

Oh, I guess I read it wrong. I didn't realize that the headstone was in the middle of the road, or appeared in the middle of the road. If your husband wants to go back and take pics, I don't see any harm in that as long as you don't drive in. 😊 😜I would say some prayers before and after I leave the cemetary. 😐 Maybe you want to let the spirits know you come in peace and mean no harm to them. That's always a good idea, especially when you've had bad things happen when you go there! On second thought, you'd better think twice about going because they might want to follow you home this time. J/K The ghosts usually stay where they haunt from what I understand but just in case, before you leave the cemetary, I would let the ghosts/spirits know that they cannot follow you home. =) ~Shelby <3

Truth be told, on this one, her point was, THERE WAS NO HEADSTONE IN THE ROAD. We made perfect care not to bother anything, living or dead. But as he backed up, he hit a headstone smack I the middle of the little dirt road. <3

yeah I know, but now I'm 11 years smarter then I was then lol. I am also more careful. My husband is now trying to get me to go back for pics, but I'm not too sure about that now.

Creepy story! Going to a graveyard, getting your vehicle stuck on a gravestone and then having things thrown at you! I agree with KimSouthO! Backing into a gravestone, although not intentional, is asking for trouble. I guess you know next time to park and walk or bike like Kim said. Good thing you had the smarts enough to ask for forgiveness! Thanks for sharing your story. ~Shelby ❀ 😊

Not to sound judgemental, but backing a van into a grave yard? That appears to be the recipe for disruption of final resting place for many. When investing cemetaries, it is best to be on foot, leavin the vehivles to the roads, if you must have another means to travel through the grave yard, try a bicycle. I am glad to hear you asked forgiveness of the dead that had been disturbed and learned from the error in judgement. It is quite possible the stone marker did 'appear' to make you aware of the impact the vehicle could have on sacred ground.

Be careful and respectful in the future.

God Bless!
