Lightened 3x for clarity. This red “blob” shouldn’t have happened with the lack of lighting in the area. It also doesn’t follow the pattern of blurs in the background.
Thermal Imaging Video
Full Spectrum Point of View Video

Parties of Amber, Brentt, Buck, and Doreen,

Thank you for your patience of experimenting with the full spectrum camera and the learning curve with such a large file in the video.

In your regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again and any EVPs that wanted to come through.

You have two spirit box audio files and they are in order. Here are the few things I found while skimming through it and any notes that make them relevant. It is up to you to discover more as that is half the fun of ghost hunting is the discovery.

  • Part 1
  • 1:04 “just the way”
  • 6:15 “5” This is Big John’s birthday: September 5. Ironically, this showed up the night before as well.
  • 10:07 “no, and”
  • 13:36 “the police”
  • 26:53 “77” There was a Jim White that was jersey number 77 on Big John’s team. No other evidence at this point says it’s relevant, but it is noteworthy.
  • 32:12 “rich”
  • Part 2
  • 0:26 “wrist”
  • 6:55 “think about”
  • 18:49 “president” Eliza, who was a pallbearer at your funeral? Our first president, George Washington.
  • 24:47 “all over the place”
  • 37:07 “those animals”
  • 53:16 “children”
  • 1:00:02 “Smith” There was a William Smith in Lodge Alley, in 1809. See page 13.
  • 1:08:04 “pay attention”

I found one photo that is definitely questionable, see above.

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video or in the full spectrum video.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with terms in bold along with their explanation of relevancy. There are also links just like above.

Other notes: The Mel Meter gave us a spike of 40+ mG (milligaus) and some questionable readings from the REM pod feature. The K-II meter spiked in the Pinckney Mansion site at 20+ mG. Second night using the FSPOV camera, filmed in the Pinckney Mansion site; video from the Powder Magazine is lost.

Team, going through the data briefly, this is about an average night of activity with the amount of clues found within the data. I welcome you to check out any other date of data/evidence to explore these stories even further.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find my own investigations in the SITC podcast, where to find my written works, and the a link to the devices I use with the list of apps that I trust on my own investigations. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me (contact info above) when you discover more evidence in your data or if you have other questions about your own experiences.

06/23/2021 – 21:24: NOAH (.51) See “Ellie” below

06/23/2021 – 21:39: ELLIE (.51) I think this is more coincidental but worth noting. I found a Noah Ellis who was a football coach. He was inducted into the Indiana Football Hall of Fame, and coincidentally, Indiana is the same state where John Cannady went to college. They were close in age, but there is no evidence that says these two even knew each other.
06/23/2021 – 21:40: FOLIAGE (.46) It’s not uncommon to get terms related to any plant life at the Pinckney Mansion site, in relation to Eliza’s indigo crops and garden at the home.

Lightened 1x for clarity. Anomaly passing through red grid: over the front wheel of vehicle.
Lightened 2x for clarity. Anomaly above center focal dot takes the shape of the grid.
At the Powder Magazine. Most often, when a grid is misshaped like this, there’s a pattern. . With this photo the left side of the grid takes it’s own shape. Needs further analysis.

Parties of Darlene, Jim and Mark.

First, thank you for allowing us to experiment with the Full Spectrum camera. This was our first attempt at using it in any investigation.

Lots of info here based on a great amount of evidence.

In your regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again along with any disembodied EVPs that would have showed up. These are voices we cannot hear with our own ears. In the spirit box audio, we have a disembodied EVP, this is not radio chatter.

In the SBox audio above, I found the following terms. Keep in mind, I do not listen to this entire recording. These terms whether relevant or not are meant to help you learn how to listen to this type of recording.

  • 0:44 “chronically”
  • 9:11 “music”
  • 18:19 “young man”
  • 18:51 “30”
  • 26:00 “protection”
  • 32:31 “on the floor”
  • 38:42 “how can I make sure”
  • 38:51 “teachers” this matches up to the “educate” we received in the digital spirit box word list below.
  • 46:19 “21” stretching this but, Big John’s jersey number was 20 and you have to say 20 in twenty-one. Remember, these spirit boxes are slowed down and will pick up extra words before and after the terms that are relevant.
  • 56:09 “dig out of the dirt” more terms related to Eliza’s botany.
  • 1:21:49 “classic”
  • 1:22:28 “I am alone” This is our disembodied voice! YES!! Very faint, listen close.
  • 1:31:38 “conscious”
  • 1:40:38 “loaded” This is relative to Philadelphia Alley which was once known as Duelers Alley.
  • 1:47:55 “wait”
  • 1:48:01 “what they’re doing here”

I found a few pics with questionable anomalies. Would love to hear your thoughts.

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video or in the full spectrum video.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with relevant terms in bold with explanations and links. This is a heavier than normal amount of what I see on a nightly basis.

Other notes: The Mel Meter had several spikes in the Pinckney Mansion site and at the Powder Magazine with the REM pod (motion detector) use and EMF spikes over 45. The K-II EMF meter was active at the Big Red Barn lot and the Pinckney Mansion site.

Team, this is a lot to go through, but one thing I did not see any evidence from was the story of Anne Bonny, so I’m leaving you this link to read more of her story. Anne Bonny and Mary Read.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find my investigations in the SITC podcast, where to find my books, a list of apps and tools that I use regularly and where to leave reviews. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me when you discover more evidence in your data.

The goal is to also have a “haunted hotel” above the shop where guests will get a kit like what you used. One of the locations we are looking at is the Pinckney Mansion site.

The day of the child’s birth would’ve been June 10, 1888 according to this legend. BUT if the labor started on June 9, then this “9” would also make sense. I will also note that the photo taken in 1987 is exactly 99 years later.

Regular Audio
SBox Spirit Box Audio

In your regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference, and for any EVPs that wanted to come through.

In the SBox spirit box recording, I found the following terms, some relevant, some not; this is to help train you on how to listen to these types of recordings. Also, keep in mind that I do not listen to the entire recording, half the fun of ghost hunting is discovering more for yourself.

  • 0:26 “first quarter” We were at Big John’s Tavern still. This is definitely a football term.
  • 1:08 “hold me close”
  • 7:04 “back to back” Kind of a stretch, but Charles Pinckney did have two wives named Eliza, back to back. We were one block away from the Pinckney Mansion site.
  • 15:18 “trailer”
  • 21:72 “tax problems”
  • 27:51 “you will find”
  • 29:40 “98-25”
  • 37:32 “these are real”
  • 45:58 “one” Could be related to the president that was a pallbearer at Eliza Pinckney’s funeral.
  • 47:28 “let’s begin”
  • 1:00:04 “museum”
  • 1:09:02 “dig”
  • 1:09:09 “sin”
  • 1:10:29 “word of the Lord” Along with “sin”, it’s noteworthy that we were near St. Phillip’s Church.
  • 1:16:43 “jury”
  • 1:25:19 “shame anybody”

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video.

Below, you’ll find plenty of relative terms to your ghost hunt along with why they were relevant with explanations and links to verify. Nice work here.

Other words of note: The Mel Meter gave off a very strong reading at the Pinckney Mansion site after several resets; also showed an EMF reading peak of 70 mG (milligaus). The K-II EMF Meter gave several spikes at teh Big Red Barn Lot and the Pinckney Mansion site.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find my investigations in the SITC podcast, the devices and apps that I use regularly along with my contact info for when you discover more evidence in the data.

Overall, there is quite a bit here. This was an above average amount of relative terms and activity that I normally see in these locations as a whole.

Click here to view all 76 photos taken during your ghost hunt.

Coverted to B&W to see textrure of possible anomaly on left half of photo. The lighter area of the bushes does not match up to the shadows in the picture. Needs further analysis.
Cropped photo from above keeping subjects of shadows and surrounding bushes.

Parties of James, Michelle, and Sheila,

In the regular audio above, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference along with any EVPs that would’ve shown themselves. I do not listen to the regular audio since I have the stories memorized. It is up to you to discover any hidden EVPs.

In the SBox spirit box audio above, I found the following terms. This is a recording that I only “spot check” so you can have a few references on how to listen to this type of audio recording. Feel free to get in touch with me when you discover more and I’ll verify whether or not it is relatable to any of the stories and add to this analysis.

  • 0:24 “stellar”
  • 7:50 “miracles”
  • 16:16 “after that”
  • 23:17 “you deserve”
  • 29:52 “ask God”
  • 30:31 “I’m okay”
  • 36:59 “together”
  • 44:41 “disease” Eliza Lucas Pinckney died from breast cancer in 1793.
  • 49:56 “52” Big John Cannady of the 1947 New York Giants changed jersey numbers from 20 to 52 in 1948 We were only one block away from Big John’s Tavern at this point.
  • 1:03:31 “human rights groups”
  • 1:21:16 “79”
  • 1:35:38 “red light”
  • 1:42:57 “feel healthy”

In the photos taken, there was one questionable photo, I left my notes under the pictures above.

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video during my spot check.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with the few relatable terms we did have. Ther eare notes and links next to those that could have a possible connection.

Other notes: MEL meter had several spikes of EMF readings reaching as high as 70 mG (milligaus), along with several motions detected on the REM pod function of same device; all at the Pinckney Mansion site. High EMF readings from the K-II EMF detector at the Big Red Barn Lot and the Pinckney Mansion site. Both the SBox spirit box and SB-7 spirit box users had difficulty finding clues and and answers.

Folks, I urge you to check out some of the other investigations taken this month along with any other dates that you are interested in. I feel that, other than our motion detected at the Pinckney Mansion site, this was a light amount of evidence. Once i completed my review of your data, I reminded myself that we are getting closer to a full moon and in my experience, the New Moon (the exact opposite of a Full Moon) provides the most evidence; the New Moon is a “reset”.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find my investigations in the SITC podcast, along with my contact info in the event you need to get in touch with me about this data. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me with questions. You’ll also find the names of the apps and a link of the devices I use on a regular basis.

June 13, 9PM Melissa

IN your regular audio above, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference along with any EVPs that wanted to show themselves. I don’t relisten to the audio, this is strictly for you to discover more.

In the SBox spirit box audio, I found the following terms. Keep in mind, I do not cover the entire recording, just enough to train you on how to listen to this type of recording:

  • 8:10 “deliver” What’s inside the big red barn? Horses that delivered milk and eggs to the residents of Charleston.
  • 8:26 “automatic bids”
  • 13:41 “run away”
    19:57 “focus on Christ”
  • 26:51 “advocates”
    41:32 “nature of”
  • 41:53 “good evening”
  • 47:05 “four point five percent” Charles Pinckney was 45 when he married Eliza Lucas who was 22.
  • 53:57 “crazy”
  • 1:05:29 “I saw you”
  • 1:12:20 “isolated” Anne Bonny was sent to Cuba to deliver her first child.
  • 1:19:28 “you deserve”

Unfortunately, the only two photos on the SD card were the two pics I did as a demonstration. The power must have shut off (it times out after a minute or two of no activity).

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video.

Below, you’ll see the full word list from the digital spirit box with words in bold along with explanations and links as to why they were relevant.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find my contact info for when you discover more in your data, the SITC podcast of my own investigations, and the devices/apps I use on a regular basis.

Click here to view all 145 photos taken during your ghost hunt.

Parties of Chris, Leigh and Lisa,

In your regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again and all the terms that were heard on the SB7 spirit box, since it doesn’t record. Some terms that stood out: “7” was heard multiple times (Eliza Pinckney died at the age of 70). “Burned down” (The Pinckney Mansion burned in the Great Fire of 1861). “Four” Eliza and Charles had four children. “Dog” was also heard, which is relatable to the story of Anne Bonny, not to mention it also showed on the digital spirit box word list.

In the SBox spirit box recording, I found the following terms. Keep in mind, I don’t listen to the entire recording so you can have the fun of discovering even more:

  • 0:24 “pirate” More Anne Bonny terminology.
  • 9:16 “breakfast”
  • 14:59 “church”
  • 23:01 “participate”
  • 29:26 “some exciting stuff”
  • 37:21 “angels”
  • 44:21 “of course we can”
  • 51:39 “all day”
    59:59 “than you so much”
  • 1:05:44 “I’m not coming back”
  • 1:12:49 “have a new patient” Could be related to the Dueler’s Alley story with the duel between Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd and Ralph Isaacs.
  • 1:20:11 “separate”
  • 1:28:33 “6 months” possibly the amount of time that Anne spent in Cuba while pregnant with Calico Jack’s baby.

The photo above is interesting. It is more than likely someone from our team last night and will need further analysis, but I wanted to highlight this for you in the event nobody knows who this is.

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video.

Below, is the list from the digital spirit box, you’ll find bolded terms with notes and links showing why they were relevant.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find the SITC podcast of my own investigations, along with where to find my books and leave reviews. There are also links to dive into the equipment and apps that I use on a regular basis.

June 9, 9PM Stephen

Stephen and Emily,

In your regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference along with any disembodied voices that wanted to show themselves during your ghost hunt.

In the SBox Audio, I found the following terms. Please keep in mind that I do not go through the entire recording so you can have the fun of discovering more:

  • 6:19 “we can talk about”
  • 12:38 “typically”
  • 13:33 “can’t apply”
  • 20:55 “ages…tell me more”
  • 26:48 “you can line up”
  • 33:45 “I know”
  • 37:55 “covered the body”
  • 45:32 “Paris” Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, son of Eliza Lucas Pinckney, was the Minister of France.
  • 51:15 “December” Eliza’s birthday is December 28, 1722.
  • 1:19:37 “just turn around” This would’ve been around the time I was telling you about the gate in Philadelphia Alley.
  • 1:27:18 “stop asking so many questions” Close to the end when we experimented with the doll.

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with terms bolded and explanations and links as to why they were relevant during our ghost hunt.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find the apps and tools that I use regularly, my contact info for when you discover more in this data (or other locations, questions) and the SITC podcast of my own investigations.

My hope is that this investigation brought to light what the TV shows and YouTube videos do not: that ghost hunting takes patience and knowledge of your location’s history. Without both of these skillsets working together, paranormal activity can seem like a scary thing simply because it’s unknown either in knowledge of the activity or speculation.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me when you have more questions.

June 8, 9PM Amanda

In your regular audio above, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference, along with any additional EVPs that may have shown themselves.

In the SBox spirit box audio, here are a few terms I found. Though some may appear irrelevant to our ghost hunting stories, this is more to teach you how to listen for terms in such an odd recording. Keep in mind that I do not go through the entire recording (or else the list would be much longer), this is so you can have the fun of discovering more.

  • 8:45 “showed him”
  • 9:06 “need your help”
    15:56 “self-righteous”
  • 16:05 “give me”
  • 24:14 “thanks to you”
  • 31:48 “here we go”
  • 36:58 “every age”
  • 38:31 “word of God”
    47:10 “answers”
  • 54:40 “to leave”
  • 1:11:15 “Post & Courier” This is our local newspaper. Remember, Ralph Isaacs placed an ad in the paper about Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd; these were the dueling opponents in Philadelphia Alley.
  • 1:11:27 “matching” I’m tying this to the “H” we got out of the digital spirit box word list. Matching H, could be the double initials of Sue Howard Hardy.
  • 1:21:00 “uplifiting”
  • 1:21:40 “royals” Talking about pirates, this could be a reference to either the British, or Port Royal, a known pirate area in Jamaica.
  • 1:21:50 “total eclipse”
  • 1:31:28 “targeting us” Talking about the trial of Anne Bonny and Mary Read?

I did not find any strange happenings or anomalies in the thermal imaging video.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with terms in BOLD, with explanations and a few links to help aid your research. Some of these terms seem to be very generalized (more than vague) which is why they are bolded.

Other Notes: The MEL Meter was not acting properly and seemed to be oversensitive during this ghost hunt. For most of the duration, the REM Pod function of this meter was turned off due to this reason.

EMF spikes from the K-II EMF meter at the Pinckney Mansion site. Other EMF spikes up to 8mg (miligaus) on the MEL Meter, also at the Pinckney Mansion site.

At the top of this data page, you’ll find the SITC podcast of my own investigations, where to find the tools and apps I use on a regular basis, along with info on my published books. For your group specifically, I’m going to recommend some of the apps (EMF meter, digital spirit box) based on the info you gave me about some of the locations and tours you take.

June 6, 9PM Kathy Mica

Click here to view all 184 photos taken during your ghost hunt.

Parties of Kathy and Mica,

First off, happy birthday to Dale!

In your regular audio above, you’ll have the stories over again for reference and to listen for any EVPs that wanted to come through. These would be disembodied voices that we can’t hear with our own ears.

In the SBox audio, here are some terms I discovered. I only spot check this audio so that you can have the fun of discovering more:

  • 0:16 “standing by”
  • 9:54 “across the border”
  • 10:46 “all night long”
  • 19:37 “told me about”
    27:44 “family” (we would’ve been entering the Pinckney Mansion site around this time)
  • 35:02 “the answer”
  • 41:54 “there you go”
  • 42:00 “energy”
  • 47:57 “happy and healthy”
  • 55:20 “rise”
  • 55:27 “right around the corner” (approximately moving towards Lodge Alley)
  • 56:02 “Schmidt”
  • 56:57 “videos”
  • 1:03:28 “ghost man…long walk” This one is odd. Vague, but could be relevant to the duel I spoke of in Philadelphia Alley between Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd and Atty. Ralph Isaacs.
  • 1:03:44 “Johnson” We heard Johnathan on the one of the spirit boxes, and here’s the last name. John Johnson lived in Lodge Alley in 1801, see page 12 of this archaeological document on Lodge Alley. This is an excellent tie with the name we heard.
  • 1:04:43 “skeletons”
  • 1:12:02 “for decades”
  • 1:29:38 (whistling sound) I wish I could make this stuff up…lol. The Whistling Doctor of Philadelphia Alley.
  • 1:38:50 “Nick” This is not me. This is a reference to the Chief Justice that Anne Bonny and Mary Read were sentenced by: Nicholas Lawes.
  • 1:39:00 “to God”

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video or in the photographs that were taken. I spot check the video, but look through all photos.

Below, are the terms from the digital spirit box with bolded terms that have explanations and links. I’m more impressed with what came out of the SBox recording than the list below. Using both of them, it seems that we had a few terms that told us about our physical locaton more so than about the people in history that I told stories about.

Other notes: We had a couple of spikes on the Mel Meter with questionable motion detected all at the Pinckney Mansion site. All devices were in working condition with no glitches or battery drainage from any device.

At the top of this page, you’ll find the SITC podcast of my own investigations along with the devices/apps that I trust and use regularly.

Click here to view all 294 photos from your ghost hunt.

Parties of Christine, Jeff and Jill,

In your regular audio above, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference as you dive into all the data.

In the SBox Audios (there are two, the second is from The Powder Magazine only), I found the following terms, but keep in mind, I don’t go through the entire recording(s) so you can have the fun of discovering more. I also want to point out that the boys heard two terms that I did not catch in my initial scan; “Brown” and “Howard”. “Brown” is relatable to Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd, one of the duelers from the story about Philadelphia Alley. “Howard” is relevant to the story about the sign at St Phillip’s Church: “There’s no ghost at St. Phillip’s except for the Holy Ghost”. This story was about (warning before opening link) Sue Howard Hardy.

  • Part 1
  • 0:21 “military” Remember, Big John Cannady knew the cadets coming in from the Citadel.
  • 7:02 “bouncing back”
  • 12:06 “of your last hour”
    22:41 “things that are real”
  • 23:10 “New York” Big John played for the 1947 New York Giants.
  • 32:57 “have you been there”
  • 33:35 “wait for her”
  • 43:39 “left”
  • 1:14:54 “runaway”
  • 1:19:46 “conversation”
  • Part 2
  • 2:11 “stand up”
  • 4:02 “behind you”
  • 4:08 “don’t wait”

I found one picture out of the 294 taken (no, you didn’t break the record of 550) that is questionable, the blue streak in the photo is at the end of Lodge Alley. Though somewhat in the same shape as all other streaks, the “blue” aspect of this is what makes it significant. This will be further analyzed this upcoming week.

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video. There were five that had to spliced together, so do not mistake the quick transitions as “glitches”.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with terms in bold that were relevant along with explanations and links.

Other aspects: Many terms were heard on the SB7 (non-recordable) spirit box. This is impressive; number of children from Eliza Lucas Pinckney, along with specifics on how many boys vs girls. Nice work. Other terms were also heard but this specific set of data was most impressive to me.

The Mel Meter gave us a spike of 100mg (milligaus) upon entering the Pinckney Mansion site. Some motion detected in this location and at the Powder Magazine. I’m leaving you a few extra links to dive into the story about Anne Bonny since some of you seemed very interested in this story and not much came from the data. Anne Bonny and Mary Read.

At the top of this page, you’ll find my investigations in the SITC podcast (more episodes coming in September), where to find my published works (new title coming at the end of 2021), along with all the devices and apps that I use on a regular basis.

Regular Audio

Parties of Anna and Justin,

In your regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference along with any EVPs that decided to show up.

In your SBox Audio, I found the following terms. As you’ll see from the time stamps, I focused on the Pinckney Mansion site looking for the disembodied “3” that I thought I heard in real time. Unfortunately, I was unable to find it. Keep in mind, I did not go through this entire recording so you can have the fun of discovering more. Not all the terms below are relevant, it’s more of a way to teach you what I listen for on these types of recordings.

  • 5:36 “activists”
  • 10:12 “true”
  • 15:00 “top 50” Close, but no cigar. Big John Cannady once wore the number 52 for the New York Giants.
  • 21:35 “we are looking for”
  • 23:14 “China…groceries”
  • 24:16 “the enemy”
  • 25:58 “holidays”
  • 26:57 “Satan”
  • 29:56 “instead of your own”
  • 31:00 “teachers”
  • 34:48 “3-0-3” This came up when asked how many children Eliza had. Eliza birthed 4 children, but only 3 of them lived.
  • 35:01 “men who took away”
  • 46:55 “crazy”
  • 1:06:31 “republican”
  • 1:06:34 “5-9”
  • 1:14:16 “honor”

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging camera.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with bold terms that were relevant to our location along with backlinks to verify information. This spirit box kept running after we parted ways and I kept the portion of the list attached here in case anything was relevant to you.

At the top of the page, you’ll find the SITC podcast with my own investigations, along with where to find my written work. The devices and apps that I use regularly are also at the top of the page for your convenience. My guests often ask where I get my equipment, so this is just an easier reference for you.

SBox Spirit Box Audio

Parties of Ahren and Ren,

In your regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again, along with the messages heard from the non-recordable spirit box. Although I didn’t stumble across the “Ohio” message that came through a spirit box, I just wanted to point out that Ahren’s party and myself are all from Ohio. The term “Ohio” is not often heard on a radio station in South Carolina.

In the SBox spirit box audio above, I found the following terms/phrases. Keep in mind, I do not go through this entire recording. That would be taking away the fun of you discovering more:

  • 0:29 “but in the fashion”
  • 0:34 “don’t be afraid”
  • 6:41 “this is not sick”
  • 12:41 “force my way in”
    17:25 “woman”
  • 25:04 “is someone here” (yep, we sure were there)
  • 29:48 “marching”
  • 29:56 “for a moment”
  • 35:51 “first day” I’m taking the word “first” as the answer to “which president was a pallbearer at Eliza’s funeral”.
  • 42:31 “12 to 3” I took this as a date and found this on Mark Jones’s (another local Charleston author) website: The Gazette, December 3, 1744.
  • 54:24 “forty percent” I dove into the number 40 as a year in both Lodge Alley and Philadelphia Alley, but came up empty handed.
  • 1:08:54 “just figured out”
  • 1:14:05 “judge” Anne Bonny and Mary Read went in front of Chief Justice Nicholas Lawes to be tried for piracy.

In your thermal imaging video, Ahren was correct, she was not recording the whole time. However, when piecing the three videos together, the last few seconds (we were at the Powder Magazine), a blue film covers me in the very last second of the video just before it cut out again. It’s unexplainable and definitely something I’ve never seen before. In combination of the video cutting off, this will be considered an anomaly for sure.

Below, you’ll see all the terms/phrases from the digital spirit box word list with notes and links to help guide you through the stories along with the relevance of the terms. Some links will take you to articles/investigations that I have personally written on the location. The other links will take you to reliable sources.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find the SITC podcast of my own investigations (more episodes coming in September), along with the tools and apps that I use on a regular basis.

06/01/2021 – 21:39: JACK (.47) The ghost of Anne Bonny is said to be seen all over Charleston, primarily at the Powder Magazine because of the familiarity she would have of the building. It doesn’t surprise me when I see terms/phrases related to her story even when not near the Powder Magazine. Calico Jack.

These two terms, “Thomas” and “Presidential” had me researching a bit further to see if there was a tie to Charleston. Ironically enough, I found this letter from the city of Charleson to President Thomas Jefferson written on June 1, 1791. It also mentions Maj. Pinckney. The irony was the date of our ghost hunt together matchnig that of the letter.
