|The Music Box
This happened when I was young and it still gives me the chills. My uncles house
is haunted by the ghost of a 7 year old little girl named Jenny. They found out
through the neighbors and newspapers she had been run down by a car in 1973. Mom
said Jenny was stuck in a state of limbo. She would appear on occasion and walk
into the nearby cemetery. They think Jenny went to visit her parents graves. She
was buried next to them. My uncle followed her apparition into the cemetery one
night and saw her grave.
was a sad ghost. She stayed in what had been her old room. She would cry at
night. She would call for her mommy and daddy .... and the music box. It was
the only thing her father had given her and it seemed she wanted it more than
It got to
the point my cousin Ann wouldn't go in her room because all she heard was the
cries. So they got someone into the house to try and make Jenny leave. I don't
remember who, but it didn't work. It just got worse.
She would cry out "daddy" all night long. My uncle grew bold and tried to talk
to her. He asked her why she was there and what would make her stop crying. They
were ready to move and he felt sorry for her. She said she wanted her daddy and
her music box. He asked where it was and she said in the attic but she wasn't
allowed to go there. He went up there and all her toys and belongings had been
packed away. It was there he found the music box. He left it on a dresser in
her old bedroom and it was gone the next morning.
That didn't make
her happy though, somehow she destroyed the bedroom. It seems she wanted all her
toys and to be able to play with them. So they moved everything to a little room
in the back of the basement. My aunt and uncle lived there for many years
afterwards and many times we went to their house and heard Jenny playing in the
basement with her toys. A few years ago my aunt and uncle did move away. Till
the day they moved Jenny was still around. You could not mistake the sound of
the music box playing in that little room in the basement.
Chaos Comment: The Aunt and Uncle have
moved and the house is under new ownership.
I wonder if they have experienced anything?
