Hi! My name is Isabel and I am a 9th grade Journalism student. I read about Bachelor's Grove Cemetery on your site, particularly the paranormal activity, and found it very interesting.

I am doing a project for my class about this cemetery and was hoping you might want to collaborate?  Would you be willing to share your thoughts with me for my article? I have a few questions; do you think you'd be able to answer these for me? I'd love to be able to cite you as my source. Is that okay with you? Following are my questions. Feel free to get back to me before the 26th if that works. I am really looking forward to your insights!

1. Do you believe in ghosts? Why or why not? When you think of the word ghost, what visuals appear in your mind?
2. What is your definition of ghost? What does the term ghost mean to you?
3. What motivated you to write about this? Why do you believe this is important for readers to acknowledge?
4. Has anything changed paranormally after writing this? Has something changed with the area or the Cemetery itself?
5. Have you personally encountered any ghosts or paranormal activity? If so, how would you describe the experience?

Thank you so much!

Hello Isabel
Thanks for your inquiry and Interest in Bachelor Grove.
Answering your questions.
#1 Yes I Do !
have first hand experience at Bachelor Grove.
This one Appeared as quite large white glowing sphere.
#2 No steadfast definition in my opinion. A Ghost is an apparition
or force trying to make itself known in our world.
#3 They are real and a terrifying experience as a young teenager around 1974.
#4 I now live in Houston TX so I do not know how the cemetery or surrounding area has changed.
#5 My experience goes far beyond just witnessing a spirit or ghost.
there was actual verbal contact. if you want to know more. Reach out and we 
can possibly speak of the entire experience. 

Thank you

Hello! Thank you for writing!
Could you please tell me what university of journalism  are you representing?
If you wanna know about Cemetery, there is a small swamp in that place, which can emit methane gas, since this is a property of any swamp.Over time, this gas can cause visual and auditory hallucinations.Modern science today does not have direct evidence of the existence of ghosts, and it explains any paranormal activity by the features of geoanomalous zones that occur due to a break in the earth's crust deep underground.

That's the official explanation, if you would like to know my opinion, well, the truth is out there.

Thank you for your time and best regards,

P.S. Yes, they are exist.

I wrote an article about my experience here

1.  I think the universe is very complex and poorly understood, so yes.  I think that ghosts can be manifestations of past events repeating themselves, but also can be interactive rather than just residual, and sometimes it might be necessary to call them spirits rather than ghosts in that case. 
2.  I think the word ghost might be oversimplified.  There are places where no deaths have occurred but phenomena still exists, and no amount of speculation will explain it.  
3.  I'm not sure if this is a question for me.
4.  My experience with ghosts at Bachelor's Grove essentially happened when I was a skeptic with no prior experience.  After that, the activity diminished when I returned, but I always saw something strange.  
5.  Yes.  (see above article link)

My pleasure.   If this article is ever made public in some way, feel free to let me know.

   I’m not sure how I was included in this email. I’m not associated with any paranormal activity groups. However, I’m a masonry conservator and I work on cemeteries in Georgia and Alabama. I grew up near Bachelors Grove and did research on it back in college, but I’m not a believer in ghosts. If you have any questions about stone preservation or things of that nature, feel free to ask.

I think you are responding to the wrong person.
I have a first hand experience at Bachelors Grove
dating back to 1974. 
However reading the statement regarding Methane or swamp gas
you can shelf that. I can assure you that in no way is the case!
Thank you
Brian Danko

Thank you to those of you who replied to my request! Those of you who still want to participate, I am rounding out my project this weekend, so I'd need your responses to my below Q & As by Sunday 4pm CST. 

For those that have kindly shared, would you be willing to share quote (something perhaps memorable) about your experience with bachelor's Grove Cemetery? And if yes, would you share your full name, age, and profession? Feel free to share more demographic details if you so choose. Once again, many thanks for your help!
