The Amherst Poltergeist

One night, screams of fright brought all of the adults of the house rushing to the room where sisters Esther and Jennie shared a bed. The girls had seen the formation of something moving under their covers as they were about to go to sleep for the night; Esther thought it was a mouse. A search turned up nothing. The girls returned to bed and the house quieted for the night.

The following night, more screams disturbed the family. Esther and Jennie excitedly claimed that they had heard strange noises coming from a box of fabric scraps that was kept under the bed.

isivorI appreciate your passion for ghost stories. Believe it or not, I used to love telling Hawaiian ghost stories when I was a grad student teaching archaeology field school. I'd have student lying awake, jumping at every sound around their tents out on a remote volcano slope in the middle of the night.
