One such location is Trenton Hall in Friendship, Maryland. The many ghosts that haunt here become agitated when changes disturb the property. On one occasion, a couple of graves that were on the land were to be relocated to a nearby cemetery. This caused a great uproar among the resident spirits. Doors slammed, windows were banged closed, torrents of footsteps tromped up and down the stairs and angry voices echoed through the halls. It was a “moving” day long remembered by the then living members of the household. In Hanson Hall in La Plata, Maryland it is a pair of portraits that provide the haunting. The paintings are of the brothers Thomas and Daniel Jenifer, revolutionary war participants. After the two had passed on, their portraits took on the roles of foretelling the family’s future. If a death was to occur, the portrait of Thomas would leap off the wall in the night and be found the next morning lying on its back. But if a wedding were in the offing, the picture of Daniel would spring from the wall and be found on the floor in the morning – STANDING BOLT UPRIGHT ON ITS EDGE! And the rare story of a speaking ghost comes from the small town of Wynn, Pennsylvania. It was a cozy four room cottage with a large open fireplace that a recently widowed woman had just moved into with her young children. The previous owner had mysteriously disappeared. The mystery, however, was to be solved on the first evening of the widow’s tenancy. The ghost of a tall male appeared before her, standing at the fireplace. “What do you want?” the woman calmly inquired. “Someone to speak to me,” replied the ghost. He informed her that he couldn’t speak until someone addressed him first. Then he told the widow how he was murdered and led her to where his body had been buried along with a large sum of cash. These are just three of 26 similar ghostly accounts that make up this book. All are from the old-fashioned days of old-fashioned hauntings.
