To whom this may concern,
While on vacation, my family and I
decided to take the Beaufort ghost tour. During the tour, I took two photographs
of a set of graves that lie right next to each other in the old burying grounds.
In one photo, everything seems quite normal with no visible anomalies, but, in
the consecutive picture of the same two graves, a robed figure appears standing
atop the grave on the left. I must have looked at these pictures a hundred
times, thinking that the figure was just another grave or pillar next to the
graves I was shooting. It wasn't until I was showing a friend my vacation pics
that he spotted it and almost fell from his chair. When I placed both photos
side by side, I almost did the same. One pic, everything is normal, and in the
second, someone is actually there. I decided to take the photo to a friend of
mine who is a photography major at the local college, and he could not explain
the apparition in the picture because, as he explained, it was taken with a 3.2
megapixel digital camera that is virtually incapable of double exposing or
capturing anomalies that a 35mm would. This might sound crazy, but everyone that
has seen this picture is speechless. This picture may actually prove the
existence of some sort of being that is supernatural in nature, and here's why:
1) I have two pictures taken minutes apart of the same graves, one shows
nothing, the other CLEARLY shows someone standing overtop of the graves (the cemetery
was locked at the time, making it impossible for the entity to be human). 2)
When you actually take notice of the entity, it is incredibly clear what you're
seeing. There is no question that there is a robed figure blatantly there. 3)
This photo was taken with a high-quality, digital camera that is unable to
produce exposure errors. 4) I showed the picture to a professional
student-photographer that could not explain why there is an apparition there.
Instead all he could tell me was that, whatever it was, it was there at the time
of the photo being taken. I have seen other "ghost snapshots" on tv
shows and in books but have always been a skeptic due to the vagueness of the
content in the pictures. Based on the evidence, this picture is the real deal as
far as I'm concerned and I have yet to meet someone who has thought the
Picture one - nothing out of the
ordinary - You can see the leaves from the trees behind the graves
Zooming in you can see a robed figure standing on the grave
My family took the Ghost Walk Tour on
June 22, 2005. We really enjoyed it!
Attached you'll find the house with
the 'strange orb' by the tree.
Every person I've showed it to thinks
it's 'misplaced energy' and they
'can almost see a noose at the top'.
I think we should contact
'Ghosthunters' to have them come to
Beaufort and investigate! :)

PICS WERE TAKEN AT 8:50 ON 8/04/05 DURING THE GHOST WALK. IT IS THE HAMMOCK
HOUSE. NO ONE WAS SMOKING, AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE ORBS ARE ALL ABOUT. OUR
TOUR GUIDE THAT NIGHT WAS KATIE. SHE WANTED TO SEE PICS IF ANYTHING SHOWED UP.
WELL HERE IT IS. BOTH PICS WERE TAKEN IN THE SAME MINUTE. OTHER PICS WERE TAKEN
BUT ARE CLEAR."
It was not raining that night.
These are called "spectral orbs" by ghost hunters. To see this
many in one place is truly remarkable.
Hello! My name is Lisa
Phillipps & I was on the ghost walk on Thursday, July 15th, 2005.
Here is the picture I took of Blackbeard's Hammock House...if you look closely
in the doorway, there seems to be someone (or something!) standing there!
There was a gentleman in front of me who took the same picture at the same
time I did & the doorway in his picture was completely black!!! SPOOKY!!!
Thanks so much, the tour was a lot of fun & we'll be sure to do it again
on our next trip!
were on the ghost tour nearly two weeks ago and took this picture. we
showed our guide, Carrie and she asked us to send it in. When we got home
we hooked the camera up to the tv and could see what looked like two faces.
One was on the left side and the bigger on the right. We were the party of
10 and had a great time!
Just want to thank-you again for such a wonderful time while our family was
there. I promised I would send you pictures from my trip and here they are. I
was so thrilled to have such a great tour guide during all the events. We will
definitely be back during a full moon to try to hear the screams of
I will also send you a picture with the 3 ghosts in it..... If you look on the
bottom right porch you will see 3 men. The first picture is the original
untouched picture. The second picture is where I clicked on instant fix and
you can see them better. My question is this. What part of the porch were the
men found under that were killed?
Can't wait to come back and visit you. My trip was so wonderful. I will be
bringing my husband back to do it all over again. I just can't say enough
about you guys!!!!!!!!

If you look closely, you can
see three Union soldiers from the Civil War on the right hand side of the front
porch. The middle one has his rifle resting on his left shoulder.
They were murdered at the
Hammock House and buried under the front porch.
After taking the ghost walk
we went back to the Hammock House and the Old Burying Ground to take pictures.
We were amazed at what we saw when we looked at them. We saw something in
the tree and the bright object on the ground at the cemetery. We have since been
back again and there is nothing on the ground to reflect light. Last night we
went back again and here are two pictures with bright orbs.
There is a story about the cemetery
that tells about two orbs of light that move around together - two lovers
re-united after death. They seem to be making quite a "spark"
together when they touch.
After we went on the
Beaufort Ghost Walk, we returned to the Old Burying Ground to take some more
pictures of the graves we had seen. You can see from the pictures that the
ghosts were out in numbers that night. Mind you, it wasn't raining at all,
and these orbs weren't visible to the naked eye. But, they showed up
easily on our digital camera. Other people took pictures with different
cameras at the same time, but showed nothing in their pictures????
We were pretty spooked.
These pictures were brightened a
little, but only to show you the extraordinary number of orbs gathered in one

My son and I took your tour on Sept.
4, 2005 and we had a great time. Here
are a couple of photos from that
night, it seems we recorded lots of
activity that night.
Please enjoy the photos, post them if you want.

These are from the 6:30 tour on Sat.
night the 15th of Oct. It was my family and myself and we took several
pictures on the tour and then went back to take a few more. There was
definitely something going on at the house. I have several more pics but
they are not distinct. The first pic here, you can definitely see the
circle, the second pic you can see it at the bottom of the door on the second
floor, then the third pic you can see it in the top of the tree. Must
say that it was very impressive to see and witness. Thanks TourBeaufort.
