My First Ghost ExperienceI was only 2 yrs old. I know most people can't remember when they were 2, but I remember the experience vividly. What happened was I was awakened by the voice of a boy. I looked up in the direction of the voice and it was a little african american boy. I thought it was odd because his face just peeked through the material of the curtain like there was a hole in it. He said "ma, why that little girl in our house"? Then a woman's face peeked through the same hole and said "cuz she lives here now sugar". I started screaming and my mom came in and got me. She showed me that there was no one in the room. It was actually an apartment above a garage..so no one could have possibly been near the window.
My mom asked me what they looked like and I pointed at the salt shaker she had on the stove...which was a Black Mamie (looked like Aunt Jemima). She laughed it off and thought nothing of it. About 25 yrs later when I spotted that garage apt...and pointed out to my mom that I remembered that house was the first time I seen a ghost...she said "that was just a bad dream". I was determined to prove her wrong...but didn't know how..then an Aunt suggested researching the property. Turned out the apt was all that was left of a Doctors old homestead that had burned down in the 30's. The Apt..was the "helps" quarters in the 20's and 30's. I am pretty sure that any help a rich doctor would have had in that era...would have been african american. Of course this doesn't prove I actually seen a ghost...but I know what I seen then and have had many experiences since!
