My ancestor gently brushed my hair, and pushed the swing.
My aunt (a genealogist) and I drove from many states away through a dark, rainy night to arrive in Cape May, NJ, where our Townsend ancestors had settled. Not knowing another ancestor was Henry Ludlam, I selected this B&B. My aunt was thunderstruck by the coincidence. We came upon the Inn with candles glowing in the window...a family welcoming tradition! My aunt spent many hours talking history with the innkeeper, going through an old trunk. I went upstairs to shower, with only a ceiling fan to brush dry my long, brown hair. As I gazed out the window overlooking a serene lake, imagining my ancestors, a curious, gentle female presence seemed to take the brush and brush my hair til dry. I told my aunt downstairs, who sat holding an old hair brush and a lock of our ancestor's carefully wrapped long, brown hair! The next day, we walked out to sit in the gazebo and the wooden porch swing, hung from an old tree near the lake. I felt the ancestral presence again, gently pushing the swing, and happy we had come so far to visit. We hated to leave. Wonderful memory!Posted 4/2/17

Sounds and things moving
My freinds bought this house .when I sleep over I could feel something in my bedroom and would sound like someone walking on the wood floors but when I would turn on my light nothing was in the room..im thinking it was my mind playing tricks on me since I read lots of ghosts stuff about this house.but in the morning I sat on the deck drinking coffee watching the sunrise over the pond with tons of ducks in the pond..what an awesome experience to sleep in one of the most historical places in dennisville and Cape may areaPosted 10/21/16
