Are there any positive or beneficial ghost stories
« Thread started on: Apr 10th, 2006, 04:17am »
Does anyone know of an actual or hearsay story where ghostly activity has brought about a greater good to a number of individuals?
I'm not referring to the fictional Scrooge.
Nor am I talking fiction like the cartoon Casper or Patrick Swayze's ghost - I'd rather have an example like a ghostly sighting which stopped all passengers from boarding an aircraft or similar kind of stories.
My apologies in advance if my query takes you way out of topics you usually discuss but I came across this forum as I was conducting research for my next book.

Well,.....Don't know if this is what you're looking for? But a few years back I was helping my sister & her family move from Hebron Wi. (about 10 mi. east of Fort Atkinson.)
I was upstairs on the second floor of their old limestone brick home that they had rented. I was helping the kids with getting their toys etc. packed. I hollered loud enough so they could here me as they were down stairs. I hollered "Come on you guys, Let's get this stuff packed so we can get going" Then I heard a voice as I kept packing without looking back, "Just let them be" Then I said out loud "Well we gotta get this stuff packed"! Then I happened to look back & noticed that there was no one upstairs but myself, I looked all over & found no one! I went down stairs after a few minutes & talked to my older sister, As we chatted I mentioned something to the fact that when she was upstairs telling me to let the kids be. She looked at me straight in the eye & said, "I wasn't upstairs" Then she filled me in"Oh I guess that we didn't tell you that this place was haunted!" The kids etc. have heard a womans voice at times & the cats & dogs watched something invisible move across the room with their heads & their hair standing on end!
I had made a post about this somewhere on here, They also at their prior residence in Fort Atkinson was haunted by a woman too who's aparition apeared for them at several times, She was a friendly ghost/spirit etc. I've never seen her but had at one time witnessed ornaments on the Christmas tree move as though something had brushed up against them, Then my older brother looked at me all wide eyed & before ha said a word I felt this very cold spot touch my arm etc. He said "Whoa, Did you feel that?" My responce was "Yes!" This was a duplex at the time, The neighbors son was about 4 yrs. old or so. His mother asked him Who were you talking to last night when you were in bed? His reply was, The pretty glowing woman that visits me from time to time!
I can get you the adresses of these haunted homes if you'd like them! & also see about getting more info from my sister & her family! The home in Hebron is on Hwy D & is now standing empty! Well,....Hope this is what you are looking for! I swear that this is no bull! The voice from the home in Hebron sounded so real that it was just like there was someone realy there! There were no foot steps heard going down stairs either as they use to creek eveytime someone used them!
