In June of 2019, we returned to the site of General Braddock's grave site. This time we came armed with some investigation equipment. This was the second time that we visited this location, and we wanted to see if we could prove or debunk any of the paranormal activity that has been reported.

In August of 2018, we finally got a chance to go over and tour the Strock Stone House in Austintown, Ohio. This is the building that sits next to the Meander Creek Reservoir that most people drive by every day and don't even realize it is there.
During our second visit to St. Augustine in July of 2010, Marianne looked around and booked us on a Ghost Tour (our second) that began at the Spanish Military Hospital in St. Augustine.

Over the years, we have considered Hill View Manor to be our Second Paranormal Home.
