In 1996 or 97, we moved into our Great-Grand parents house after my Great-Grand Mother passed away and my Great-Grand Father moved in with my Grandfather just to join her a couple months later.
It's an old mill house from the mid 1800s among many others in a 10-20 mile perimeter. Our Great-Grandmother would tell us of her "friendly ghost" when we would visit as young children, but it would never frighten us.
My Mom and Dad told us they heard dishes being shuffled around at night as though they were being washed. My Grandfather (their oldest son) told my Dad that a man was killed by means of a shotgun over money before they moved in (They lived there for over 60yrs). Just a little background on the house and what I remember as a child.
I believe I was 12 or 13 when I was asleep in my room. It was the rear room my Great-Grand Father built on to the house. I was having a difficult time with either the transition or just puberty. I woke up in the middle of the night, as usual, to utilize the latrine. But, I woke up with a pearl type cross in my right hand. I know it may sound like a small and meaningless happening, but, I have never seen this cross before until then. I still have it and I keep it packed away with other gear... Not sure why.
I have always dreamt of my Uncle (Dad's brother) after he passed away prior to our move and my other Great-Grand Mother years after we moved.
I can't remember if I was dreaming of anything that would pertain to a cross or something that would require guidance of such, but I'm sure I always have and will need it.
I have more to tell, I have to consult with family on details so I can remember.
