I haven't been to the site in a while because I have a lot on my plate at home right now. Though, I did find out a few things regarding my first story posted here "A Haunting Hallway and Paranoia" and (2) the noises in my home at present. You can read my stories "A Haunted Antique Coat Rack?" and "Haunted Antique Coat Rack Part II" if you want to find out what happened on these occurrences.
I would like to point out that my first story was posted on this site in July 2008. To be short, I took a trip up to a Toronto suburb called Mississauga to visit with friends. Their new home ended up being haunted, which they already knew, since having several things happen after they moved in. But, I had forgotten this until after I brought it up to them. So, I wanted to find out a little more history about the area in which they live and this is what I came up with.
The Mississaugas are a sub-tribe of the Anishinaabe First Nations people located in Southern Ontario, Canada, closely related to the Ojibwa. The Anishinaabe people migrated along the shores of Lake Erie to what now is southern Michigan and became "lost" both physically and spiritually. However, the Mississaugas instead migrated along the Credit River. My friends' home is located on the West side of the Credit River.
In 1805, the Mississaugas signed a Treaty known as the Toronto Purchase. It surrendered over 250, 000 acres of land in exchange for 10 shillings. This purchase includes what is today the City of Toronto. It is still subject to ongoing land claims settlement. Another Treaty was signed the day after this one where the Mississaugas surrendered lands from Etobicoke Creek to Burlington Bay, to a depth of 6 miles back from the Lake Ontario shoreline - 85, 000 acres of land in exchange for 1000 pounds currency. Eglinton Avenue marks this 6-mile today in the city of Mississauga as well as one-mile on each side of the Credit River, exactly where my friends' home is located. This was known as the Credit Indian Reserve. The disposition of the Mississauga Indians came due to declining numbers, malnutrition and the loss of their way of life and disease.
To me this almost sounds like they were pushed out of this area by the English from reading this and other historical events. I could not find out if a murder or anything of this nature took place where their house is located, but there was a fire that burned down a huge warehouse/mill in the 1800s and it is not too far from where my friends' home is. David believes that a murder took place on his home site before his home was built. I did ask him if there was an Indian burial ground on his property. He did not know.
I wrote another story not too long ago about noises in my home at present which were disturbing to me since we never had these present before. We actually did not have any noises, and if we did, we didn't hear them or they were not loud at all.
The noises on the windows are still here-a crackling sound where the odd one is very loud. The past couple of weeks, a loud crackling has moved to the foyer at the front door. This is where I placed the coat rack when it was here. This just reappeared again as of late. A tape recorder that I had did not work so I have to get another one and I haven't done this yet!
Next, the large stomp of the staple gun noise is completely gone to this day. After I blessed this house and said a few things in a commanding voice, it has not come back and we are so happy about this!
I get the odd tapping on the front door or different walls in the home when I am sitting alone in an area and my dog is always with me. She hears these noises too. I think those noises are my brother playing around (again) with me because he has made these sounds before. Either my husband is in bed sleeping or hears them and says it is the house settling. So this has been my dilemma!
I am trying to update on these events as they progress. These noises came about after I bought a haunted antique coat rack and finally got rid of it. It is as if it left some residue from it, this is what I believe and after Tammy, "Rhodes68", confirmed that this could be possible, I in fact think this happened.
I am also thinking about taking pictures of the windows at night and maybe I will see something when the tapping noises occur. This is something that I have been playing around with and maybe something will come about this.
This second incident really bothers me because our house has been free of any loud noises and outbursts before I ever brought that coat rack into our home.
Well, glad to say hi to everybody and thanks for reading my update. If anything else occurs and arises in the future, I will definitely let you all know.
Take care of yourselves and thanks for reading.
