Ghost Boy


You probably have read my story: My Gift. This one goes along with it. Last night, I communicated with my ghost friend. I wanted to find out what kind of help he needed. Most ghost stay for a need, so I wanted to help him.

Picture of Ghost Boy Twas frightening at first. I went down to the family living room, knowing that was where he was. I used my little sister's toy alphabet blocks to communicate with him. I arranged the blocks forming this: "What do you want help with?" then I would go in the kitchen and wait for five minutes for him to reply back with the blocks. I returned seeing the blocks changed their writing, with only two words: "My past..."

It confused me a bit, so I asked another question using the toy blocks: "what of your past?"

He answered back: "to go back and refix with John Sin".

I didn't know how my gift could see the past. So I was troubled.

Me: "Who is John Sin?"

Ghost boy: "My friend, twelve, killed in Goldfield, Nevada High school..."

Me: "What about it?"

Ghost boy: "Want to visit John Sin, ghost, still there..."

Ever since then, I've been doing research of that high school. Anybody know where it is? Or have any history on that school? I would like to know, very much. I've also posted a picture of the ghost boy with this story.

Where about in Ireland you're from? Because I don't recognise the county or town and that photo? Er, no comment. No, seriously, ghosts don't let you take their photos... Like I ask, where about in Ireland where you born? 😕

Okay can you tell me did your friend tell you the date? And the country or state because there is a goldfield in Nevada but it became a ghost town around 1915-1940 I think I don't know for sure but I have been there a few times before it does have a vibe that more then one ghost is near. But I can't tell what had happened unless I have the right information. Like is John Sin his full name? What's the date and year what country and state? If you do not know and can't find out then you p should look through old newspapers and I could help if I find anything I will post it.

I'm sorry, but your picture looks fake. Ghosts appear in pictures, most of the time, as orbs. If you are lucky, and you capture an ENTIRE spirit, then it wouldn't appear as much. Say, it would look more like a black, translucent smudgy appearence that is barely visible. But hey, maybe you caught a good one. Good luck

I think I have to agree with you Mustang, and that picture seems fake...
But I have another question, when is the "Submit Your Story" coming up again? It's been like that for a long time now 😭

Hello Alex.=) I like reading your stories but I can't help feeling like you are pulling our legs on this stories you submit. When I read stories that I find untrue or maybe someone looking for attention, I usually just ignore them because I don't like to be rude or hurt someone's feelings. However, in this case I feel I have to say something! What I have to say is this, and you can take it however you want to, but I feel like you are trying too hard to be recognized as a 'ghost hunter' of some kind. I have never seen nor have I heard of something happening to someone every place they went. Also, the pictures, ghosts/spirits don't just allow you to photograph them when asked nor do they respond to every question or every time you talk to them for that matter. I'm really sorry to say this but I feel like you are being somewhat dishonest in your stories and pictures. The picture of the ghost boy is a total fake. I'm sorry if I offended you or hurt you in any way at all, that was not my intentions. These are just my gut feelings that I have finally released to you. I don't know if your purpose here is for attention and recognition but you don't have to over exaggerate stories. I think you are a very sweet, nice girl but I feel like you are dooping all of us. I debated on posting this comment or not but now that I have you will probably think I'm a bad person which I'm definitely not. I like you but not exaggerated ghost stories or fake pictures. Again, I'm sorry for having to tell you this. ~Shelby

I have a question: In this story you indicated that you are from Ireland, but in your profile you indicated that you were born in Utah. So, which one is it? You also show that you still live in Utah!
just a question!

wow that is another really creative way of talking to ghosts, and less harmful than mine. I wish I could go back and do a little more investigating.

For some reason, my last comment did not make it on here. Allie, my apologies, I have not checked back in awhile. So what I did was use the link to the Goldfield, NV city site and reach out to their chamber of commerce and dept. Of tourism. They then redirected me to their bureau of records. I also contacted the Esmerelda County Dept. Of Records and their library--nothing.

Maybe you can turn up more than I could. Good luck!

The site that I found for Goldfield, Nevada is:
I also tried to help you and your ghost friend out by locating some kind of paper trail to follow in finding "John Sin" and could find no records. A date would be helpful, any kind of idea of how he may have been killed would also be helpful.
Please do not get angry with us and fault us for trying to help out by doing research for you and offering suggestions (such as the possibility of the name being Johnson instead of John Sin. It IS a ghost BOY right? I do not know the history of this friend of yours, and you being in Ireland and me being here in the U.S., you can not possibly assume that I would know the credibility of your friends answers)
Your ghost friend has answered all of your questions so far, why NOT try again and ask for specifics this time? If he has always been honest and straightforward with you in the past, I do not see why he should change that now. Especially when you have a multitude of people here offering their help (that you asked for, I might add, by posting the questions). Perhaps, once he understands that we are all trying to help locate his long lost friend, he will be more than eager to supply much needed information.
Thank you for the story, and anything else you want to post that will help us understand and help out better.

Hello 4u_allie. When you publish a story you are open to both approval and critisism no matter where you are from. It just seems to me and a few others that if he is as communicative as you say he is, then he could provide you with all the information you need. With that said let me say that I did enjoy your story, thanks for sharing.

Be Safe and God Bless 🤔

I told you in the story, I asked questiones that I don't know. And I don't want to bother with critisism with my true story. I'm from Ireland, not America. And why am I getting names of ghosts to ask him? Not all ghosts know each other. Also, I would like to have the contact information to the city of Goldfield, Navada, could you send that to me Ohiowatha? It would be preciated. My email is: www.lofland.allie [at]

hmmmm. That is interesting, I have not heard of this type of communication with paranormal 'entities' before. Not saying it didn't happen, just curious. Most often dealing with paranormal they tend to communicate when they want to and on their terms, at least that has been my observation.

Are you sure in the communication of John Sin, it wasn't meant as 'Johnson'. Just a guess. After all, if the 'entity' ia a younger boy, the spelling...

God Bless!

Well, just trying to clear this up a little. I actually contacted the city of Goldfield, Nevada and not only do they have no death record of a 12-year old John Sin at the high school, they have no record of a John Sin at all. Perhaps he wasn't a metriculated student, or maybe records just weren't that tight back then, but either your "ghost boy" is pulling your leg, or you are, ours.

Thanks for sharing, though!

...ok, my bad. Does your sister's block set include commas for punctuation, too?

Looking forward to the next photo and exactly what happened to poor John Sin at the Goldfield, Nevada high school. Ask him how Virgil died.

My sister, has a laundry bascket full of letter-blocks. She has collected them since my mother gave her her fist set when she was born. She's now 12. I thought to use these because it was probably easier to communicate with, then with a pen and papper. Also, I've heard that communication with ghosts with Oijah boards end up bad. I talk with him when my family's asleep. They now know theirs a ghost in the house, but arn't scared of it because they know I'm helping it. I talk with him when their asleep, because he trusts only me. And I didn't take the picture on demand! It took me a couple days to convince him for me to take the photo. The reason why it looks old, is because I took it in black and white film.
He's great to have around, like a brother to me. He comes with me to the college. He follows me everywhere! My friends are afraid of me, because they get cold when their with me.
Thanks Kisyg for the website, its helped! ❤ --Alex.

16 years ago (2007-11-28) your sister's block set has six blocks with the letter "E?" That's a heck of a block set. When you get a chance, can you please ask the spirit what happened to Amelia Earhart for me? That's been puzzling me for awhile and I'd love to know.

I am from Nevada and currently live in Carson City. There is a town called Goldfield half way between Carson City and Las Vegas. It is an old mining town that is now a "ghost town" but still has a small population. There is a small high school there. Do you have an approximate date of attendence from your boy?

Hi 4u_allie. I'm with luvparanormal. 😕You MUST be real good to always be able to communicate and take pictures of them on demand. ~Shelby

When was this picture taken? It looks (from what I can see) to be very old. I've never heard of using toy letter blocks to communicate with a spirit. Your little sister must have a lot of blocks. And your ghost boy seems to be very articulate.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm not sure I'm understanding 😕
You mean that every question you ask him he is answering and then on top of that he let you take a picture of him and it came out this clear?
I have never seen one like this, You're good!

Amazing!He knows a lot! You can ask him and if he doesn't know, do you know if it had any mirrors or still does? That would be great if it did! Then you can send him through the mirror.That's what I usually do.

Can you ask your ghost friend where this place is? He is very communicative, maybe he can give more detail?
