Angeline Moore’s “Orphan Girl” Tombstone Story

Angeline Moore’s “Orphan Girl” Tombstone Story 86

Fifteen-year-old Angeline Moore’s body was found beaten to death on Huckleberry Ridge, not far from Station Camp, on January 6th, 1872.

Although her tombstone calls her an “orphan girl,” that is actually incorrect and her mother was alive and well and living in Kentucky.

Angeline had in fact been bound to a woman named Keziah Thompson, who lived near Huntsville. When the body was discovered, nearly fourteen miles beyond Huntsville, it presented a horrific appearance to those that discovered her body.

One eye was mashed in, the collar bone dislocated, and several ribs were broken, and bruises innumerable bore evidence of the most inhuman treatment. It was because of this that her body wasnt at first recognized and why when she was interred her tombstone was inscribed with the words “orphan girl”.

The Knoxville Daily Chronicle described the finding of Angeline’s body in the following way:

“The body bore evidences of brutality and inhumanity at the contemplation of which a demon might shudder. The affair has caused intense excitement. When found, the body was on a small path near the road. Her collar bone and one rib were broken. The left eye was mashed in, apparently by a severe blow, and the entire body, most horribly mutilated, bore witness to refined cruelty, which is at once sickening and a burning shame to advanced civilisation.”

Initially, her body was simply buried. Soon afterwards, however, the disappearance of Angeline Moore became known, and her body was disinterred and a coroner’s inquest was held. The body was recognised as that of the missing girl, and suspicion soon pointed to widow Mrs. Keziah Thompson, to whom the dead girl had been bound.

It was rumoured that the girl had been subjected to severe and cruel treatment, so inhuman that she was not given necessary clothing and shelter and in consequence had her fingers and toes badly frozen.

This led to a second degree murder indictment against Mrs Thompson and her daughter Sallie. A jury was unable to convict her however, resulting in a mistrial, and the two women were never tried again for the crime.

The only motive that could be given was by neighbours, who suggested the possible reason for the murder of Angeline Moore, by Mrs. Thompson and her daughter, is that some property held by them would in a short time, have reverted to the girl, and they, perhaps, wishing to avoid parting with it murdered her.

It is thought that Mrs. Thompson and her daughter took Angeline’s body at night fourteen miles into the mountains, in order to avert suspicion from herself.

Angeline Moore is interred at Chimney Rock Cemetery in Oneida, Scott County in Tennessee.

Ghost hunter told how to summon spirits

Ghost hunter told how to summon spirits 87

A ghost hunter explained how to summon ghosts and when is the best time to do it according to The Daily Star.

Jade Capasso explores hotels, inns, historical places to allegedly reveal the spirits and ghosts that are present in them. She shares her discoveries on the YouTube channel Ghost Club Paranormal. The girl is sure that you can also talk with spirits.

The 28-year-old ghost hunter is confident that you can talk to ghosts and spirits using a voice recorder. A particularly good time for this, according to her, is the eve of All Saints’ Day – Halloween.

 “I think there is more activity during Halloween. More people believe in the other world, ”she said.

She recalled that Halloween pumpkin is an invariable attribute and symbol of the holiday. People decorate their home with funny, scary, and sometimes even terrifying faces.

 “I’m sure there will be more sessions and many will use Ouija boards,” she says.

To connect with the “other world”, you can go to a famous haunted place, says Kapassa. She also recommends checking your home for ghosts.

To hear a ghost, the girl recommends using special equipment. 

After all, ghosts, she said, emit sounds at ultra-low frequencies that are not perceived by the human ear. You can hear them, as she notes, only on audio recordings.

The girl says that you need to leave the digital voice recorder in a room where paranormal activity is observed all night, or ask questions and wait for an answer.

“Ask questions, and who knows, you might hear a disembodied voice answering you,” says Jade.

According to her, there is no need to rush, because the spirits must be given enough time to respond.

“You probably won’t hear them in real time. But if you listen to the recording, you might hear someone from the underworld, ”she said.

A photographer took a picture of an old house, but did not know that a woman lived there. No wonder – you can only see it in the photo

A photographer took a picture of an old house, but did not know that a woman lived there. No wonder - you can only see it in the photo 88

A Scottish resident took a photo of an abandoned building, and then could not believe his eyes when he looked at the finished photograph. From there the woman’s face was looking at him, but the man is sure: there was no one in the ruins of the house. Finding an explanation for what he saw was not easy.

A photographer from Scotland, who wished to remain anonymous, decided to arrange an unusual photo session, Unilad writes.

His choice fell on several abandoned buildings that are located in one of the parks in the North Ayrshire region. After taking a couple of pictures, he went to the studio to print them, and then looked at the finished result.

Mysticism often happens in abandoned buildings , and the case with a man was no exception. In one photo, the Scotsman saw the ghostly silhouette of a woman looking at him from a window. However, the man assures that there was no one in the building, and he was alone in the ruins.

During the shooting, I did not feel anything unusual or anything otherworldly.

Despite the fact that the woman’s face looks intimidating, he is glad that he managed to capture it. Moreover, the hero of the story shared the frame with all friends who adore mysticism and riddles.

Pay attention to the left window

I’m happy that I was able to capture something that looks like a ghost. I am even proud to be able to show photos to people who love riddles.

Many people, according to the photographer, are inclined to believe that this is a ghost, who love to talk to children so much, although the author of the picture himself is in no hurry to draw conclusions. He even looked at the frame under a microscope, but never came to the truth.

You can, of course, speculate, but the human brain makes us see familiar traits everywhere, especially if we look at them long enough.

Moreover, the photographer, according to him, does not really believe in ghosts and other mystical phenomena.

I don’t like the term paranormal. As for ghosts, I don’t know if they exist. I don’t even know how to define them. What is it? Energy?

Camera recorded an extraneous movement in Massachusetts. And this sight is not for the faint-hearted

Camera recorded an extraneous movement in Massachusetts. And this sight is not for the faint-hearted 89

A Redditt user with the nickname grandslammer0891 from Mansfield, Massachusetts, posted a video from security cameras at a friend’s house, which scared him and left users in disbelief.

The author of the video explained that his friend left home by the end of August, leaving four huskies in the care of a friend. He usually visited them during the daytime.

One day the owner of the apartment received a notification in the middle of the night that the camera recorded some kind of extraneous movement. At that time there were only dogs in the house.

The video captured the kitchen and part of the living room. A dog is lying on the sofa in the right corner, and you can trace the turns of the head by its ears. When her ears turn to the left, then in the dark you can see the transparent figure of a moving person.

The video puzzled users and caused a mixed reaction from them. Some could not find an explanation for what they saw and panicked slightly. The dog’s head turns towards the ghost, which suggests that it also noticed the apparition.

“What is it, I saw it … with my own eyes. Does anyone else see this? Because it seems to me that I definitely saw something wrong. No no”.

Others decided that a man had walked past the window on the right, and his shadow flashed on the left in the headlights. Some users even believe that a live person got into the frame.

“I hope your buddy has a gun. There was a real intruder. “

Some readers agreed that the ghost video is quite plausible, since Massachusetts is full of ghosts.
