Not trying to troll, Mr. Chandler?

Please elaborate, especially since you typed this in a reply to me:

I only did that for trolling.

So, you troll and don't troll at the same time?

Are you this Michael Hyatt?

Https://www.goodreads.com/author/list/530824.Michael_Hyatt

If so, you are a very prolific author though, from your MikeChandlerOfficial profile:

"I have been a paranormal investigator for over 25 years... I am also an author of several books on ghosts..."

None of the 24 books in the previous link is about ghosts...

What am I missing?

Also the books are under the pen name "Michael Hyatt." Much thanks.

Always,

MikeChandler - what about the books on ghosts you have authored? Were they published by Michael Chandler Phillips or McHugh?

It bothers me not to find them under any of these names... Is it because you, too, want "to have no invasion of their privacy" and asked not to be mentioned in the internet?!?!
Not the best marketing strategy, if I may say.

"One more thing, I am NOT trying to troll anyone I just created a new account because I could not log on to my other account for some strange reason."
Okay, fair enough but, - why did you have to change not only your name but your age when creating the new account?
Do you mean you changed your name within the last four months?

I don't know... In my opinion, this is starting to smell bad... Really bad.

Hello MikeChandler001,

Thank you so much for answering all the questions. No doubt you're sick to bits of people wanting to know what the mansion looks like and more about Francesca and Dr McHugh.

It is so interesting it's only natural we all want to know more.

Thank you again for getting back to us.

Best wishes,
Miandra
😘 ❤ 😘

Hi all,

I would like to address the comments that I've been reading. I noticed you all have many questions and I will try to answer them as best I can.

First you all wanted to know why you can't find anything on the internet. Allow me to say that the family wishes to have no invasion of their privacy but DID allow me to post this case on YGS. You won't find anything on the internet because its not there. Only I know the family's secrets because in response to another question I am a descendant of Dr. And Francesca McHugh however I do not share the last name as I legally changed my name from Michael McHugh to Michael Chandler Phillips and I go by Mike Chandler.

Now, the next question I would like to address is if both Dr. McHugh's are related. The answer is Dr. McHugh from this case is the great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather of the living Dr. McHugh who happens to be my uncle.

One more thing, I am NOT trying to troll anyone I just created a new account because I could not log on to my other account for some strange reason. Thank you all I hope you understand! 😊

All the Best,
Mike

P.S. I want to point out that the house is located in any bustling metropolis part of Atlanta but rather a country type grassy area, I also will hopefully have a picture of the bonnet soon! Thanks!

Greetings, MikeChandler001.

I am curious by nature. When you stated, "The McHugh Mansion in Atlanta Georgia is a private residence and is not open to the public" I wondered what the exterior of this structure looked like. My interest had been piqued already because it was "a house in Atlanta, Georgia" that "was located in the middle of nowhere." Seldom do bustling metropolises contain broad swaths of wilderness; it is not impossible for a protected greenbelt to contain museums and stately homes so I was interested in seeing this house and environs.

As RC indicated, there should be *some* information available on a historically-significant house revealed by a cursory of search. After all, historically-unimportant houses don't have reason to hire costumed tour guides; for you to have taken the apparition of Mrs. McHugh as a guide in costume, the house must have an impressive appearance. I've used assorted names and dates from your story to no avail. Well, I've had no success on the historical front; I have learned that Atlanta's living Dr. McHugh is "one of the most experienced urological microscopic surgeons in Georgia."

Perhaps you would be so kind as to clarify where my research methodology has gone awry, or to explain which aspect of your narrative has mislead me?

Thanks,
Biblio.

Are you, by any chance, Francesca's McHugh's descendant? 😕

It must be hard trying to find ones ancestors and knowing that they didn't exist. 😭 😭

... And then, MikeChandler001's one and only 'favorit poster' is MikeChandlerOfficial... 🙄

Is this a troll with high self-esteem or with a big ego? 🤔 😁

In light of some recent comments, I decided to flex my librarian skills to find out more information.

It seems there is no more information to be found.

This, plus 'trolling', and why would a professional ghost hunter troll a ghost website, plus some other things included in your comments, I'm going back to the Pike Place Market. 🙄

Mike, I have questions. First what do you mean, "To be very honest I am NOT a teenager regardless of what it says I only did that for trolling." Trolling for what, pray tell? Why the urge to even create a second profile? Especially if they both contain fabrications - according to your own comments.

Hi MikeChandler001 & Lady-Glow,

I did a google search too and couldn't find anything on Francesca McHugh or the McHugh Mansion.

Lady-Glow has some great questions and requests. I'd love to see a picture of the mansion and find out more about Francesca and her doctor husband.

Can you post a link? I googled her name/Atlanta Georgia and nothing came up in my search. 😕

I look forward to reading more. I really find this post interesting.

Best wishes,
Miandra
😘 ❤ 😘

PS: Lady-Glow,

I tried to up vote you, however I got a message saying, ' vote for someone else'. Lol

Hi Mike - do you have any idea how the heck Ms McHugh's spirit got attached to her bonnet? Perhaps she lost her head while wearing it?
Have you witnessed/experienced any activity at home after acquiring the bonnet?

I find it utterly odd that the current owner of the house had done nothing to dispose of the bonnet if "she wanted to get rid of it", after all it was as easy as to put it in the trash can and send it to the dump. Do you know how for long they were keeping the bonnet at home knowing that it was haunted?
Are you aware if the current inhabitants of the house are Francesca's descendants?

Is there a chance you could post a picture of the bonnet and, if you have one, the house too?

Do you know if it is possible to find any information about this interesting house and its previous occupants in the internet? I came empty handed after a quick Google search... Of course, I might have not looked at the right place. O_O

Yes the profiles are one and the same, though this is the profile I will be using from now on.

Mike. OK. Error on the profile? Well, mistakes are made by many. Besides the age question, I have no reason to doubt this experience. I regret my misunderstanding of the situation.

May I ask why you have two different profiles?

Thanks.

Hi MikeChandler001,

I thought your name looked familiar.

So, my question is;

Are you the same YGS member, formerly known as "MikeChandlerOfficial"? Profile being-
Https://www.yourghoststories.com/user-profile.php?user=82369

If so, perhaps a comment in your profile, explaining that it is you, or (if this is somebody different) at least correcting the "Young Adult" status.

Hope this helps remove any confusion.

Hello MikeChandler001,

I found your post very interesting. I'm going to research the McHugh Mansion further.

I would have been scared if I saw what you saw through the window.

Brave hobby you have. 😨

Why does it say your a teenager if you're not? Can you fix it? It might help members understand how you fund your paranormal investigations. Just a suggestion.

I look forward to reading more from you.

Thank you for sharing your experience.

Best wishes,
Miandra

Hi, Mike. Interesting story. Also interesting that the recordings aren't available to listen to. I might accept it because your investigation is ongoing, but some things do not ring true here.

First, "the author is a teenager." OK, there are postings from teens on this site, I can accept you having an experience. You start your narration thus: As a paranormal investigator I travel the USA in search of Haunted Locations. I'm wondering: do you have some income of your own that allows you to travel so freely? This ties in with your concluding paragraph, "I took the bonnet and put in a glass case in my "ghost room," a room in my house". I'm sure it is a nice house.

I don't usually call out stories as fake, but this one smells like the Pike Place Market in Seattle, if you catch my meaning.
