Do Angels Hang Out in Cemeteries?

Of course they do, and I have a picture to back up that claim.

St. Mary’s Cemetery is on Ilchester Road in Ellicott City. It was established in 1894 so it is rich with history. The size of the cemetery is small now, but it used to occupy over three acres.   In the early 1990’s a developer bought the property intending to build homes, but a preservation society was able to save approximately one-third of the original cemetery.

This is where we conducted our investigation. Records indicate that there are graves that aren’t marked with headstones because the people were slaves or poor, so besides the few tombstones at St. Mary’s Cemetery, there could be unmarked graves.

The Ghost Radar started talking before we even got out of the car. We got the name “Danny”, so we decided to look for the name Danny on the tombstones.

We located him fairly quickly. At the top of a large obelisk-shaped tombstone was the name: “Daniel C. 1915 – 1915”  As I was taking a picture of the tombstone, I couldn’t imagine the pain and suffering that Danny’s parents underwent. Daniel was at the top of the headstone, then beneath him was his brother, who had lived to be three years old, and beneath them were twins, who also died in infancy like Daniel.

Here was the grave of four babies from one family, and this is where I captured the picture of an angel holding a baby.   If you look closely, you can see the baby’s eyes and mouth and the side profile of a female angel holding him.

As Robby and I left the cemetery that day, I waved good-bye to the spirits and yelled out of the car window, “Bye! See you guys tomorrow!” I could feel a crowd of smiling spirits waving back and I could feel their joyous anticipation over our promised visit.

The first visit was during the day so we returned the next evening after dark. I felt welcomed and the spirits were eager to talk to us. Someone was a doctor who was either from India or had visited India. The word “Engineer” came through. With Ellicott City’s historic railroad this could easily be someone associated with the railroad.

Another dog was mentioned, or could it have been George Bolton again? He was just a short distance down the road so perhaps he was afraid that we’d forgotten about him!

Not a chance George.

The pictures that night were filled with orbs.  Some of these orbs could be bugs or dust, and most were opaque, but one orb stood out and was brighter and more brilliant than all the rest.

These are the spirits of St. Mary’s Cemetery. They are located very near our house so it was wonderful getting to know them and it’s nice to know that we have such friendly neighbors!

Words from the Other Side:

Danny’s Story

I like the name Danny. I wasn’t crazy about the whole birthing operation and I was far from being called a model patient, but I arrived in the early morning under gray skies. Mars was still shining on the horizon as my father attempted to build a fire to chase away the chill in the air. The sky soon filled with ashes from the flame climbing up the chimney, but we weren’t worried about the fire.

It was strong, but I wasn’t.

Like my brothers and sister before me, I would soon follow them to the Other Side.

If I had grown up, I would have been an Engineer. I could see myself driving a powerful steam engine leaving a cloud of smoke as I delivered cargo, passengers and mail to far-away lands. I’d have a mighty dog who traveled with me and we’d become famous for our quick trips across the country.  Equally famous would be my best friend, who was a doctor in India.

Clearly, these things didn’t happen, but I still observe this world and I still dream.

My plan was to leave my brief mark on this world. Next time I think I’ll stay a little longer, maybe I’ll try Mississippi….

The Next Investigation

Next week we will be investigating the remains of the Orange Grove Flour Mill.

    • Wow! What an incredible experience! I’m jealous! I was blown away by the investigations that my son and I did this summer. In “Angel Garden or Alien Sanctuary”, I have a picture of my father watching over my son. As they say, priceless… Thank you for sharing your wonderful story!
