Stories in the Cemetery

By Stories in the Cemetery
Ghost stories, urban legends, and tales about the afterlife. On "Stories in the Cemetery" you'll hear investigations of haunted locations and the research I go through as I write my fiction books about the afterlife.

Plenty of topics including: playing cards for fortune telling, pets that can see ghosts, Atlantis, Camera tricks played by spirits, and the list goes on and on.

E2: Hatcher Cemetery w/Bonus Audio
Hello Listeners!! After posting the first episode show notes, I realized I can't post the ENTIRE story to each podcast episode. So......for the WHOLE story, please visit my blog for this Story in the Cemetery: Hatcher Cemetery This episode talks about my investigation with Psychic of the Hatcher Cemetery near Conway, South Carolina. I wanted to bring this investigation to light simply because of the bonus audio that you will hear. It's 3 minutes of Psychic walking on his own and you won't believe the change in his accent and tone towards the end of the audio. This change in his voice not only furthered my research later, but it shows that he was channeling. When I asked Psychic about this audio later, he didn't recall the last 10 seconds of the commentary. I was blown away and I"m sure you will be as well.  Enjoy this week's Story in the Cemetery. This week's sponsor is the novelette collection I wrote about the reincarnation into trees. I chose this series simply because of the content in this week's episode.

E1: Alice Flagg
 Alice Flagg Stories in the Cemetery, Uncategorized The story of Alice Flagg can be found in countless books about ghosts or hauntings in Horry County. If you’re unfamiliar with where this is, just know that on your next vacation to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, you’re right dab in the middle of Horry County. And by the way, don’t pronounce it “Whorey” county either, the “H” is silent. The locals will correct you for sure. For the story of Alice Flagg, you can find in many books about urban legends, but the gist of the story goes like this: Alice, daughter of prominent family fell in love with a turpentine salesman. Her family disapproving of the relationship, sent Alice away to college further inland of South Carolina. Before she left, her love gave her an engagement ring which she wore around her neck as a necklace. While away at college, Alice fell ill and was brought back home. As she fell further ill, her father found the necklace with the ring and flung it into the ocean. Alice died before she could marry her beloved turpentine salesman. It is said that Alice haunts the Grand Strand looking for her necklace. This is my short synopsis of the story.
