HAUNTED MICHIGAN: Sheldon Cemetery in Canton, Mi
Here is an obscure Michigan haunting that could be worth seeking out, seeing as there have been professional ghost hunters investigating here. It's the Sheldon Cemetery in Canton, located on Sheldon Rd. between Michigan Avenue and Palmer. Check out the above video of what the film-footage provider claims is a spirit...then read on...
According to the Michigan Ghost watchers website:
"STRONG SMELL OF ROSES, YET NO FRESH FLOWERS PRESENT ON ANY OF THE GRAVE SITES.....MUCH OF THE ENTITIES IN OUR PHOTOS ARE IN THE WOODSY AREA AT THE NORTHERN MOST END.....NEAR THE SHED IS A COLD SPOT THAT CAN BE EASILY FELT WITHOUT THE USE OF A THERMOMETER.....TROUBLE WITH EQUIPMENT, RED GLOWING SHAPES APPEARING WHENEVER ANYONE'S FLASH WENT OFF, AND A MILD SENSE OF BEING UNWELCOME."
This cemetery was originally a potato patch, established as a cemetery in 1835; one grave is that of a local 19-year-old boy who was a soldier - and killed - in the Civil War in 1863...but that's not what some feel is the reason for a haunting...some believe it very well may be caused by the spirits of five children who all died in 1871 from an epidemic. Their plot is within the cemetery; it shouldn't be too hard for you to find it.
This Michigan haunting is a new revelation to many Michiganians in Mid-Michigan...as always, if you visit, be respectful.
