A Story many have never heard of in Erie County "The Restless Dead of Grave Yard Pond

Misery bay in Erie County appropriately named for  a tragic tale long forgotten during the war of 1812
when in 1813 The body's of American sailors some still living but barely after a scourge of Small pox hit their vessels  where weighted with stones and deposited into a little known and forgotten  pond  that is part of Misery bay.
Which has become known as Grave Yard Pond.

 After Admiral Perry's fantastic victory his flag ship The Niagara and the Lawrence   stayed at Misery Bay in Presque Ilse  for the winter and settled in .


However Small Pox broke out and with little help available the officers on board  felt dropping the dead and dying into the pond was the only thing they could do to prevent the small pox from spreading.
The mens body''s are still there in the swampy  pond of misery bay  never recovered and at this point possibly only a few bones are left .

It should be recognized as a national military cemetery and should be taught in schools but this has not been done those men died alone and forgotten far from their homes.
Of course some claim late at night  that the place is active with paranormal activity which you would expect for such a tragedy. 

They say the Haloween attraction The Scare House in Etna has Real ghosts in it

Yes the Scare house is one of the top Halloween  Haunted House Attractions in the country located in an old Elks Lodge in Etna Pa. You go from one horrifying scene to the next as you travel thru the dark hallways

 There is even an evil bunny rabbit with an axe which chases people.

But when all the fun is done for the evening and the actors go home for the evening thats when they say the real ghosts come out to play

As members of the Oakmont Paranormal Society recently discovered after being invited to check out rumors of actual paranormal happenings at the famous attraction. As guests and visitors report  cold spots and feeling they are being watched and other creepy things

Drake Bowan Director of OPS reports they picked up the sounds of a piano playing in one EVP
as well as several spots where K meters showed possible presence of activity. As they investigated the building which with all the joy and happiness as well as some times sadness that went on with all the different activates  you would expect memory's to stick around and this seems to be the case at Scare House.

Which is getting ready once again for the 2017 Halloween season
