    Hello Harold, this is great! We lived in Republic for 10 years – never knew the story about the train. If you ever have any work in the Tiffin area let us know – Doug and I love this stuff. You once said you could feel spirits in our woods – if you ever want to investigate let us know. Hope all is well. Good luck! Ann Huth-Fretz

    have you all ever been to the columbian inn in waterville ohio? i’ve heard stories, and i live near there, but have never ever seen anything. I have heard many stories of the place called Collingwood Arts Center. That place is super creepy!!!

  18. kay simmers says:

    Hey Harold, this is Kay. you met me at your mom’s house when your sister-n-law had to have surgery. I was trying to find that audio where you picked up the woman screaming in the attic and the cradle rock.
    I went up there with Joe and we placed marbles on the floor but none of them were moved.
    playing back our audio, we picked up a woman answering our questions and she said “that’s not true”
    I would like to hear the audio of the woman screaming in the attic but was unable to find it. could you please give me a link to that audio.
    thanks and it was great meeting you and your family.

    • toghs says:

      I think Harold only has that clip in the archives. So it hasn’t been placed on the site or on our facebook. I’ll let him know that you are looking for it.

  24. Steve Toney says:

    Less than 10 years ago I made fun of my wife and quit frankly any one else that spoke of the paranormal. That was before I had my first experience. Since then I have heard and seen things in my own home, have been to Gettysburg on 4 seperate occasions and spent the night in Mansfield Reformitory ( I have several photographs I would love to share with you if you would be interested ) I am also interested in taking part in investigating if any opportunities should arise with your group or any other groups you may be aware of. Thank you and eagerly waiting your response.
