Regular Audio
SBox Spirit Box Audio

Parties of Diane and Jennifer,

In the regular audio, you’ll hear the stories again for reference along with the terms heard from the SB7 spirit box (the non recordable device). The most significant thing is the name “Jack” while at the Powder Magazine in relation to Calico Jack, the beau of Anne Bonny.

In the SBox recording above, I found the following terms while spot checking the recording. I don’t go through the entire recording so you can have the fun of discovering more.

  • 8:20 “shot … down”
  • 16:04 “double it” I did tell you that Charles was over double Eliza’s age when they got married. He was 45, she was 22
  • 21:29 “to save you”
  • 21:35 “the 22nd” Again, with Eliza’s age at the time of her marriage; 22.
  • 28:23 “in a hurry”
  • 35:00 “the doctor told us about” This could be directly related to the “CANCER” term below from the digital spirit box.
  • 57:15 “twists and surprises”
  • 1:09:31 “touch”
  • 1:16:53 “I want to know”
  • 1:36:18 “1-oh-5-5” Anne Bonny’s number of children; 5. One in Cuba, the other four after her rescue back to Charleston.

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video.

Below you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with plenty of notes/links to go through for verification. I was pretty excited to learn about the Tristan term that came about.

I’ll also note here that the Mel Meter’s EMF detection spiked at 23 at the Pinckney Mansion site.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find the SITC podcast of my own investigations along with the devices and apps that I trust and use on a regular basis. My contact info is also at the top for when you discover more evidence in your data.

UPDATE: Jennifer sent me a link with a letter from Thomas Jefferson to Charles Pinckney (This would’ve been the nephew of Eliza, I believe) in regards to a Mrs. Trist. This relevant information stems from the fact that we heard “Thomas Jefferson” on the SBox and the name “Tristan” shows up in the digital spirit box. Great find, Jennifer, this is greatly appreciated. Jefferson to Pinckney, 1809.

SBox Spirit Box Audio

Parties of Alexandra and Kristen,

In your regular audio, you’ll listen to the stories over again for reference, along with any EVPs that decided to come through.

In the SBox spirit box recording, I found the following terms. I do not go through the entire recording so you can have fun discovering more.

  • 0:10 “to your faith”
  • 0:24 “12 times” There was a number 12 on Big John’s New York Giants team, but his name was Dave Brown. We didn’t see a “David” from a spirit box until later in the evening.
  • 7:12 “Martin…division”
  • 15:09 “aggressive”
  • 31:57 “they discover”
  • 39:36 “women”
  • 54:29 “6 minutes”
  • 1:04:17 “all of your earnings”
  • 1:20:09 “strike”
  • 1:25:41 “money”
  • 1:34:35 “letter”
  • 1:41:59 “Hell”

I found no anomalies in your thermal imaging video.

Party of Monica,

In the regular audio, you’ll hear all the stories told for reference as you go through your data, listen close for any EVPs that would’ve come through.

In the SBox spirit box, I found the following terms. You’ll notice based on the time stamps that I did not go through the entire recording. I leave the fun of discovering more up to you.

  • 0:51 “if you’re new”
  • 10:19 “8-5” There was a number 85 on Big John Cannady’s 1947 New York Giants football team, but without his first name (Jack Mead), I’m dubbing this coincidental.
  • 17:23 “the power”
  • 24:52 “our children”
  • 35:50 “eyes on ourself”
  • 42:41 “stop, stop, stop”
  • 1:00:56 “37”
  • 1:09:11 “but that’s how”
  • 1:09:26 “carried him out”
  • 1:09:46 “fresh maintenance”
  • 1:46:14 “cash” Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd was accused of going after Amanda’s inheritance.
  • 1:54:28 “9”
  • 2:00:21 “every direction”
  • 2:00:54 “they finish”

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with plenty of notes and links to further your research. I’m leaving this extra link of Anne Bonny since there were no direct terms from any spirit box.

At the top of this page, you’ll find the SITC podcast of my own investigations (can be found on any podcatcher), where to leave reviews (Trip Advisor, Peek), along with how to get in touch with me for when you discover more evidence in your data.

I didn’t put this in the notes below, but the phrase “Barn Lot” showed up towards the end of the digital spirit box word list. Granted, we were about 3 blocks away, but this is a specific phrase I use on a nightly basis when I’m explaining that particular location. Perhaps we were supposed to go back there?

Parties of Emily and Sergio,

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

In the SBox spirit box audio, here are a few things I found. Keep in mind, I don’t listen to the entire recording so you can discover more

  • 0:39 “new program”
  • 8:23 “America”
  • 13:14 “young lady”
  • 28:46 “could’ve happened”
  • 35:25 “first” George Washington, our first president, was a pallbearer at Eliza Pinckney’s funeral.
  • 37:51 “at home”
  • 42:49 “79”
  • 1:02:18 “enter the drawing”
  • 1:10:38 “patient right now” I see the word patient as related to Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd.
  • 1:10:41 “fairy tale”
  • 1:17:25 “yeah, that’s correct”
  • 1:17:30 “history nearby”
  • 1:17:35 “lose”
  • 1:17:57 “competitors”
  • 1:18:06 “best part”
  • 1:28:40 “4”
  • 1:28:52 “rabbit hole we go”
  • 1:37:26 “doesn’t grow bacteria”

The terms in the 1:17:00 time stamps all seem to be related to the Dueler’s Alley story.

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with terms in bold and explanations/links as to why they were relevant. I dove into the names at the beginning hoping that James and Brad were teammates with Big John Cannady, but no luck.

At the top of this page, you’ll find the SITC podcast with my personal investigations, where to leave reviews as well as how to get in touch with me for when you have questions and/or find more evidence in your data.

First, let me correct an error I made last night: Eliza Lucas Pinckney‘s birthday is December 28, her death date May 26. I had the two reversed.

In the regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference, along with any EVPs that want to show themselves. Victoria and Reilly, you’ll have to listen in on the first 45 minutes or so to get fully caught up with what was happening with the other devices.

In the SBox spirit box audio, I found the following terms. Keep in mind, that I do not listen to the entire recording, that would take away the fun of you discovering more. I will say, this particular recording was a bit light in what came through:

  • 0:28 “pirates”
  • 7:11 “purpose of it”
  • 15:24 “wedding ring”
  • 22:23 ” four point five” Charles Pinckney was 45 when he married Eliza Lucas.
  • 35:17 “see eternal light”
  • 41:04 “in the living room”
  • 1:14:44 “fifteen minutes”
  • 1:23:21 “been through so much”
  • 1:23:41 “not enough”
  • 1:29:15 “like watching science fiction”

I found one questionable red dot in the laser grid. This photo is being sent over to my wife for further analysis. In the Facebook folder I created for this investigation, you’ll see the same picture lightened up for clarity.

I found no anomalies when reviewing the thermal imaging video. Please don’t hesitate to reach out in the event you discover something that needs verified.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list. Your list is pretty heavy with relevant terms, so perhaps Alex’s energy was attractive to the spirits last night! In the bolded terms, I left plenty of notes and links for you all to go through.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find my investigations in the SITC podcast, new episodes coming in September. You’ll also find my contact info, where to find my published books along with the apps and devices I use regularly.

I’m looking at this as a phrase “Replace Marketplace”. Before dubbed “Dueler’s Alley“, this alley was named “Cow Alley” because this is where all the livestock was held for the city of Charleston. It’s debatable, but there could’ve been some transactions made in this location.

05/26/2021 – 22:38: BENJAMIN (.51) This is a possibility of two different stories. First, the names in Lodge Alley that I often hear are Benjamin and John, two gentlemen who lived in Lodge Alley in 1801. See page 12 here. (Remember, the name John was heard on the way to Lodge Alley before I diverted us away from there). This could also be a relation to Benjamin Hornigold, a pirate who died in 1719, a year before the trial of Anne Bonny.

Small anomaly in the Red Grid box. Pinckney Mansion site.

Parties of Angela, Christopher, Luis and Tammy,

What an interesting string of events. I want to first note that some of the equipment went a little faulty, all in the same location: The Pinckney Mansion site. First, the audio cut out after only 32 minutes into our tour, this was when we entered into the Mansion site. Then the camera stopped working, battery gone dead. Finally, the SBox had a jolt where it cut off, then turned back on again, but without the recording. Luckily Angela and her husband were taking notes of what they heard and then sent it to me. Nice job!

In the regular audio, you’ll catch most of the story up to the Eliza Pinckney bit. That’s where it cuts off.

In the SBox spirit box audio, here are the terms I found in the audio that was salvaged.

  • 4:07 “safe”
  • 15:01 “came in second”
  • 29:37 “Charlie” This is probably related to the nephew. See “REPUBLICAN” in the digital list below.
  • 33:57 “but the Bible says”
    38:11 “things of darkness”
  • 46:26 “must I go”
  • 49:55 “three in a row”

Here is the list that Angela sent me late last night:

  • Heavy drama
  • no jagged follow point
  • 10 or 12 years ago
  • collapsible faith
  • you just heard
  • 100%
  • can we move out
  • around the world
  • Charlie
  • 23
  • 12
  • in a row
  • and there is a reward
  • cant breathe
  • David
  • racist
  • and the Bible said
  • all ages
  • do whatever I want
  • touching
  • up to 500 dollars
  • 92
  • Christian
  • join us tomorrow
  • peaceful stay
  • here
  • Milwaukee
  • 40 yrs
  • guilty pleasures
  • so sorry
  • lasting
  • release
  • will you marry me –This was around the story of dueling Doctor who was engaged to Amanda.
  • murder sentence
  • end of the year
  • dc
  • funky town –Not the name of Calico Jack’s ship, by the way.
  • gallon of profit
  • 37 yrs
  • the most
  • 3rd day
  • wonderful
  • griffin

Through the small amount of photos we were able to take, I did find one anomaly that is questionable. I’ve left that photo above, zoomed in on the small anomaly in question. I will be sending this photo over to my wife for further analysis; photography and graphic design are her specialties.

The thermal imaging video starts off upside down, but that’s because I had to flip the video so that the bulk of it could be watched in the correct angle. This happens from time to time, based on the way the camera is handled during the ghost hunt.

Below, you’ll find the word list from the digital spirit box. I left some notes and links for you to follow up and verify. The links provided throughout this analysis should help you when researching these stories further.

At the top of this page, you’ll find the SITC podcast of my own investigations, the devices and apps I use regularly as well as my contact info for when you have questions or find more evidence in this data. Thanks again, team. Although some of the equipment went a bit nuts, it’s just something else that can’t be explained. This is not a normality for the equipment to act this way, you can scroll through other investigations to see for yourself.

SBox Spirit box Audio

Parties of Harvey and Nancy,

IN the regular audio above, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference, the SB-7 spirit box findings (since it doesn’t record), along with any additional EVPs that may have come through.

In the SBox spirit box recording, here are a few terms I found. Keep in mind, this is not an all inclusive list and I “spot check” throughout the recording to create this small list. It’s up to you to discover more.

  • 7:13 “unbelievable”
  • 11:41 “20-8” Eliza Pinckney was born on December 28, 1722.
  • 19:31 “the winter” let’s face it, December is in winter, not to mention, “winter” showed up in the digital spirit box word list.
  • 26:01 “I saw the world” (song lyric)
  • 40:19 “right now”
  • 40:38 “broke my heart” this was around the time I was telling you about George, Eliza’s infant son, who lived to be days or weeks old.
  • 1:04:30 “somewhere”
  • 1:18:13 “together”
  • 1:25:06 “ridiculous”

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video and I’m taking the cold spot on Harvey’s shoulder to be from layers of clothing. Without movement, this is hard to tell, but I’m not one to enhance false positives.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with links and notes as to why the term/phrase is relevant to the locations we visited. I’m most excited about “Paul” and the name “John” being heard on the SB-7.

At the top of this page, you’ll find the SITC podcast, where to send info when you discover more along with the names/links of the devices and apps I use regularly.

Both parties will receive an email from where you booked your tickets (Peek or Viator). I encourage both parties to leave a 5 star review, this not only keeps me touring, but also gives insight to those future ghost hunters of what to expect with such an unusual tour platform.

Teresa and David,

In your regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again (there’s also plenty of links below), and to listen for EVPs that may show up.

IN the SBox spirit box audio, here are just a few terms I found. I don’t go through the entire recording so you can have the fun of discovering more:

  • 0:22 “officers”
  • 6:00 “look at themselves”
  • 11:34 “find his voice”
  • 17:54 “90” Victor Carroll was number 90 on the 1947 New York Giants, but without another clue to this specifically, I’m drawing this number as inconclusive and coincidental.
  • 30:51 “hundreds of lives”
  • 39:44 “investor”
  • 40:46 “the responsibility”
  • 40:56 “first” possible reference to the president that served as Eliza Lucas Pinckney’s pallbearer.
  • 1:18:47 “normal life”
  • 1:24:30 “something greater than”

I found no strange anomalies in the thermal imaging video when skimming through it.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with plenty of references, links, and explanations.

I’m also excited about the Mel Meter activity we received at the Powder Magazine. That is usually a dead zone for any EMF activity at all, let alone motion through the REM pod.

At the top of the page, you’ll find the SITC podcast, along with the apps and devices I use regularly.

05/20/2021 – 21:04: KEY (.49)
05/20/2021 – 21:04: FOLIAGE (.5)
05/20/2021 – 21:05: ON (.47)
05/20/2021 – 21:06: SCORE (.55) Relative sports term while discussing Big John Cannady, a football player from the 1947 New York Giants. Cannady owned Big John’s Tavern at 251 East Bay Street.
05/20/2021 – 21:06: CROPS (.5) See “PLANTS”

05/20/2021 – 21:10: GIVE (.48)
05/20/2021 – 21:11: ACT NORMAL (.68) Ironically, this showed up as I was telling you how to react to the spirit box. To be fair, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this phrase come up before.
05/20/2021 – 21:12: PLANTS (.55) Eliza Lucas Pinckney was an experimental botanist.

05/20/2021 – 21:57: DISREGARD (.47)
05/20/2021 – 21:59: COMPETITOR (.48) This term came up as I was telling you about Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd’s duel with Attorney Ralph Isaacs in Dueler’s Alley.
05/20/2021 – 22:00: WHOEVER (.45)
05/20/2021 – 22:05: MASTER (.5)

05/20/2021 – 22:08: DELAY (.54)
05/20/2021 – 22:08: VICTORIA (.47) I found this link (and not much else) about a ship named “Galera Victoria” owned by Spain. It was shipwrecked in 1729, but there are records that it originally launched in 1718, just two years before the trial of Anne Bonny. This would’ve been in the prime of the Golden Age of Piracy.
05/20/2021 – 22:10: PUBLIC (.48)
05/20/2021 – 22:10: WHEN (.5)
05/20/2021 – 22:14: CHARTER (.49) Can’t help but think of a boat charter while discussing pirates. See more about Anne Bonny, Calico Jack and Mary Read here.
05/20/2021 – 22:16: DANCING (.46) I was using the Mel Meter, slowly moving in a small circle trying to capture motion from the REM pod function of the meter.
05/20/2021 – 22:18: BORROW (.5)
05/20/2021 – 22:19: BRACELET (.46) I don’t find this ironic that Teresa was telling me about her bracelets that she makes. I think this was a direct nod towards Teresa.
05/20/2021 – 22:19: SO AFRAID (.5)
05/20/2021 – 22:20: SHAPE (.47)
05/20/2021 – 22:20: WHEREAS (.49)

IN your regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference along with any EVPs that may show themselves.

In your SBox spirit box audio, here are a few terms I found. Keep in mind, that I don’t listen to the entire recording, that would be taking half the fun away from you to discover more.

  • 6:09 “festival”
  • 11:18 “one I wanted”
  • 17:48 “your time”
  • 23:49 “with caution”
  • 28:38 “so fast”
  • 28:47 “no answer”
  • 33:35 “arrests”
  • 45:56 “get better”
  • 53:08 “set aside politics” this is about the time we would’ve been leaving the Pinckney Mansion site, leaving Charles Pinckney, a politician, behind.
  • 1:02:52 “hypocrisy”
  • 1:14:46 “justice”
  • 1:20:21 “dog” A relative term based on the last words from Anne Bonny to Calico Jack: “If you would have fought like a man you wouldn’t have to die like a dog.”

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video.

Below, you’ll find the words from the digital spirit box with explanations and links as to why they were relevant.

I’m excited about the term “dog” above since I haven’t come across that before, even though I knew of the quote, and the Mel Meter signaling motion at the Pinckney Mansion site and Powder Magazine. The EMF readings at the Powder Magazine were also significant since this is normally a dead zone for EMFs.

AT the top of the page, you’ll find the apps and devices I use regularly as well as the podcast of my own investigations. There are more episodes coming in September of this year.

Regular Audio
SBox Spirit Box Audio

In your regular audio above, you’ll have the stories for reference along with any EVPs that wanted to come through.

In the SBox spirit box recording, I found the following terms. Keep in mind, I do not go through the entire recording so that you can discover more.

  • 6:48 “defending you”
  • 13:26 “system”
  • 19:32 “my religion”
  • 19:52 “just say it”
  • 24:30 “trigger”
  • 29:31 “brand new 20” Twenty was Big John Cannady’s jersey number. Big John
  • 29:51 “save up to 45” Charles Pinckney was 45 when he married Eliza, 22.
  • 30:20 “Republican” Charles Pinckney belonged to the Jeffersonian Republican party.
  • 34:58 “get back to work”
  • 42:00 “no impact”
  • 48:01 “survivor”
  • 1:02:29 “8-9-6-81”
  • 1:25:51 “change your life”

I found no anomalies in the thermal imaging video. I checked the Powder Magazine footage for when I felt something touch my left elbow, unfortunately, the camera was not fully directed to see if something hit me. To read more about Anne Bonny’s story, click here.

Below, you’ll find the word list from teh digital spirit box with links and explanations as to why they were relevant.

Team, this was a light night of activity with few pieces of evidence. However, we did see some action from the Mel Meter at the Pinckney Mansion site detecting motion near the eastern side of the lot.

I will also note the amount of religious terms that came from both the SBox and the digital word list. It’s uncommon since I’ve only seen this in one other location; the USS Yorktown in Mt. Pleasant.

At the top of the page, you’ll find the devices and apps I use regularly along with links to my fiction works. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with extra findings or questions. My contact info is at the top of this page.

Parties of Curtis, Lindsey and Richard,

In the regular audio above, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference and it’s up to you to find any hidden EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) since I do not go through your regular audio.

In the SBox spirit box recording, I found the following terms. Again, keep in mind, I do not go through the entire recording and this is not an all inclusive list.

  • 0:24 “hearing voices”
  • 8:12 “organized”
  • 14:41 “he went back”
  • 21:22 “junior told me”
  • 35:38 “the beach”
  • 35:57 “Martin”
  • 49:12 “no strings attached”
  • 1:07:03 “teach me” Another “teacher” reference in approximately the same time frame. Zoe St. Amand was a schoolteacher; her home was where Poogan’s Porch restaurant sits now.
  • 1:23:51 “quick”
  • 1:38:10 “figure out why”
  • 1:45:10 “5” Technically, Anne Bonny had five children. One in Cuba, and four after her release back to Charleston.

I want to note that on the SB7 spirit box, the name “Ben” was heard. Benjamin and John are two common names I hear while in Lodge Alley. These two gentleman lived there in 1801. See page 12 of this archaeological document for the full list of residents in Lodge Alley.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with relevant links and explanations as to why the specific terms were relevant to your ghost hunt. I found the Dueler’s Alley terms the most interesting.

As for your thermal imaging video and photos taken during the ghost hunt, I found no anomalies. Again, with the thermal imaging video, I only go through some of our hot spots the same way I go through the other recordings, but I do go through each and every photo looking for the smallest clues. You may see the same photo numerous times, each one lighter than the previous if something caught my attention.

At the very top of this page, you’ll find the SITC podcast of my own investigations, where to leave reviews and the devices and apps I use on a regular basis.

Click here to view all 42 photos taken during your ghost hunt.

Unfortunately, your thermal imaging video did not save the recording. I’ve tested the thermal imaging camera and it is working fine and there is plenty of storage for the video to have been recorded.

In your regular audio above, you’ll hear the stories over again along with explanations for each particular device used during the ghost hunt.

In the SBox spirit box recording, I found the following terms. Keep in mind, I only go through this randomly so you can discover more:

  • 0:24 “actually saw”
  • 0:45 “W” this could be a direct relation to George Washington, the president that served as a pallbearer at Eliza Lucas Pinckney’s funeral. We were only one block away from the Pinckney Mansion site.
  • 7:30 “the wrong”
  • 20:40 “walking across”
  • 20:48 “cold hearted snake”
  • 21:01 “approaching”
  • 29:37 “nursing home”
  • 30:00 “the child” vague, but could be a relation to Eliza’s infant son, George, that she lost.
  • 35:35 “represent…the pictures”
  • 42:49 “find the money”
  • 51:30 “4-5” Charles Pinckney was 45 years old when he married Eliza, age 22.
  • 1:00:11 “the Phillies” we were coming up on the entrance to Philadelphia Alley, which was known as Dueler’s Alley.
  • 1:08:48 “language”
  • 1:26:48 “looking for his third”
  • 1:34:01 “2 night stay”

As I said above, your thermal imaging video was lost and I was unable to upload it. I also didn’t see any anomalies in your digital photos either. However, I will take a further look when I back home at my desk.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with links and explanations 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 the data, along with the SITC podcast with my private investigations. I’m currently in Pennsylvania working on a few more investigations that will be published later this year. There will be new podcast episodes starting in September.

Click here to view all 46 photos taken during your ghost hunt.

In the regular audio, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference along with any EVPs that may show up. These are voices we cannot hear with our own ears.

In the SBox spirit box audio, I found the following terms. Keep in mind, I do not go through this entire recording as to not take away the fun of you discovering more.

  • 0:26 “good guy”
  • 8:56 “variety”
  • 19:23 “now I am a person”
  • 36:42 “power”
  • 41:52 “so we find”
  • 43:02 “invincible”
  • 43:10 “get him away from me”
  • 50:47 “5-2” Big John Cannady from Big John’s Tavern (where we started) had a jersey number of 52.
  • 1:14:24 “can’t bring their families”
  • 1:21:48 “as I remember”
  • 1:35:42 “America first”
  • 1:43:08 “four pairs” I do not find it ironic that there were literally four pairs of your group, for a total of 8 people in your party.

Unfortunately, your thermal imaging video was cut short at 16 minutes and 20 seconds. I’ve only seen this happen one other time where the video acted like it was recording all night, but only gave a portion of the video. I tested the thermal imaging camera this morning and it recorded and played back just fine. Take that for what it’s worth, but something did not want to be seen.

I did not find any anomalies in the pictures taken. There was one that was questionable, but it’s exactly that; questionable.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with links and notes as to why the bolded terms were relevant to either a person in Charleston history, the location or something going on with our group.

At the top of the page, you’ll find the SITC podcast of my own investigations (more episodes coming starting in September), where to leave reviews and the names/links of the devices and apps I use on a regular basis in the event you want to explore locations around your hometown.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me when you find more evidence in your data. I’m more than happy to take a look.

SBox spirit box Audio

In your regular audio above, you’ll hear the stories over again for reference as you go through your data, and listen close for any EVPs that may have come through.

In your SBox spirit box recording, I found the following terms. I want to note here that the “sweeping” of stations is awfully slow in this recording which is uncanny for this device. It’s slower than normal, check other tours’ data below to see what I mean. This made my initial scan of this recording awfully thin for phrases/terms. I’ll be interested to hear from you about what you discover.

  • 7:38 “person”
  • 14:41 “celebrate the Americans”
  • 27:16 “2-2” Eliza Pinckney was 22 when she married Charles. Also, of note, she was born in 1722.
  • 43:38 “fit right in”
  • 45:34 “2-5”
  • 1:03:39 “enthusiastic about”
  • 1:26:40 “repair headaches” there’s another reference to Dr. Ladd and his medicines again.
  • 1:49:58 “ambush” this one is fuzzy, but “ambush” makes sense of the British fleet invading Calico Jack’s shitp, the Kingston, where all pirates were captured, tried by Chief Justice Nicholas Lawes, and eventually hung for piracy, save for Anne Bonny and Mary Read. (see links below)

I found no anomalies upon scanning your thermal imaging video.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list along with notes and links to further your research.

Notes: The digital spirit box (cell phone app) battery drained down to 15% and had to attach the backup battery support. The SBox recording scan was slower than normal, even though the setting was at 1, the slowest scan making the list above seem smaller than average lists. Consecutive words from the digital spirit box list happened twice, an abnormality based on the averages of other ghost hunts.

At the top of this page, you’ll find the SITC podcast (I spoke of the Flight 93 investigation), where to leave reviews, as well as my books. For my written work, you can also click the “My Published Books” tab at the very top of the page.

Spirit Box Faraday Method from Pinckney Mansion Site

Lindsy, Christa and Buzz,

Thanks again for hanging out with me last night and sharing your stories, I’ll be interested in hearing more about this Kenneth Neil Doll.

In your regular audio above, you’ll hear all the stories over again for reference along with any EVPs that might come through.

In the SBox spirit box full recording, I found the following terms. Keep in mind, I don’t take away the fun of you discovering terms/phrases by going through the whole thing:

  • 6:50 “merchants”
  • 13:41 “she can choose”
  • 22:03 “children”
  • 22:59 “nephew might be smarter” Remember that it was Eliza’s son and nephew who were signers of our Constitution.
  • 30:28 “realization”
  • 38:39 “believers”
    46:36 “Month of May” granted, we are in the month of May, but Eliza’s death date was in May along with her wedding date.
  • 54:32 “this is freedom”
  • 1:17:31 “push back”
  • 1:17:51 “knees” Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd was shot in the kneecap by his opponent, Ralph Isaacs in a duel in Dueler’s Alley.
  • 1:27:30 “truth”
  • 1:28:49 “help you”
  • 1:45:16 “it’s a talking point…Nick” Yes, I know my name is Nick, but based on the location (the Powder Magazine), this could be a reference to Chief Justice Nicholas Lawes that tried and hung the crew of Calico Jack.

Although I didn’t find any disembodied voices in the Faraday recordings of the second SBox, I left you the recording above from the Pinckney Mansion site so you can see/hear how this method works. Thank you for allowing me to run a new experiment during your ghost hunt.

I found no anomalies while skimming through your thermal imaging video. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any findings here.

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

At the very top of this page, you’ll find my investigations in the SITC podcast, where to leave reviews along with all the devices and apps I use on a regular basis. Reach out with any questions via email or text.

In your regular audio, which for your particular tour is super important, you’ll hear all the activity that came out of the SB7 spirit box along with the stories I told for reference as you go through your data. There was so much heard through the SB7 spirit box, but the pieces I remember were “70” (the age of Eliza at her death), “George” (from other clues was George Washington, not her son or father) and “red” (what color is the barn?).

In the SBox spirit box recording, I found the following terms. Keep in mind, I go through this randomly so you can discover more. The best practice for going through recordings like this is to literally write down everything you hear and look for clues and/or sentences within the list.

  • 0:13 “western time”
  • 8:26 “not fair”
  • 14:12 “24 hours” There was no number “24” among Big John’s teammates.
  • 14:30 “lives back”
  • 20:28 “93” Eliza Lucas Pinckney died in 1793.
  • 20:48 “heart and soul” What color is the barn? Hearts are red.
  • 36:26 “great time to buy gas” See “smell it” below
  • 45:49 “your own”
  • 52:12 “that is not a road”
  • 1:00:08 “protect yourself”
  • 1:09:26 “strong”
  • 1:17:06 “we’re the first” A stretch, but I really wanted to give Amy the Lodge Alley document since she uses this alley often for pictures. The names I told you I often hear while in this alley, Benjamin and John, are folks who would’ve been living in Lodge Alley during the early days of residency here.
  • 1:17:48 “decisions have to be made”
  • 1:31:31 “explain”
    1:47:15 “sharp dressed man” (song lyric) Calico Jack!
  • 1:47:34 “and will fight” Still relating this to Anne Bonny’s story.
  • 1:53:21 “spend some time with you”

I found no strange anomalies in the photos taken or in the thermal imaging video.

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with explanations, links and notes as to why these terms were relevant.

This was an excellent ghost hunt. I’m excited about the amount of “George’s” heard along with Washington. The great thing about this group was you all worked together and the SB-7 team did an amazing job; this isn’t the easiest device to listen to as you all will see when you go through the SBox recording. Thank you all for an amazing time; as you can see by the recordings, I lost track of time which is always a good thing. You have about 6 hours of audio/video to go through and countless hours of reading through the links. Have fun with this, this is what ghost hunting is truly about; finding the clues that are relevant.

In the regular audio above, you’ll have reference to the stories over again as you go through your data.

In the SBox spirit box recording above, here are a few phrases/terms I found. I do not go through this entire recording so you can discover more. I also want to note that “2-2-5” was heard. Eliza was 22 and a half when she married Charles Pinckney on May 25, 1744; we could also look at the “5” as May here.

  • 0:02 “one can be sure”
  • 9:25 “two strikes”
  • 14:29 “now isn’t the time”
  • 27:50 “above sea level”
  • 28:20 “Spanish or Russian”
  • 33:28 “make sure you get”
  • 38:34 “in the way”
  • 46:09 “freedom”
  • 52:04 “93-5” Eliza Pinckney was 70 when she died in May of 1793. Remember that Europeans usually put the year before the month.
  • 1:00:19 “ended up coming across”
  • 1:08:06 “hello”
  • 1:26:42 “profit”
  • 1:35:21 “lowest… in history”

In the almost 500 pictures taken, I found nothing out of the ordinary. There were quite a few that were questionable, but nothing that I can call legitimate evidence. You’ll see my “lightened” pictures in the album I created for this ghost hunt on Facebook. This way, you can see what was catching my eye. As for the “orange” lights in the pictures towards the end of the tour, that is probably from the camera; at times, it’ll put on a light flash to help with lighting.

I found no strange anomalies or glitches in the thermal imaging video when skimming through it. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me in the event you catch something I didn’t

Below, you’ll find the digital spirit box word list with explanations and links. Without reviewing the entire list until this morning, I was surprised to see so many relevant terms in relation to each other. In essence, they seem like vague terms individually, but together there are small themes around indigo crops and just pirates in general.

Overall, I’m most excited about the numbers captured. They seem to be the most definitive answers received. This is the first investigation of the month, so in the future, your data will always be at the bottom of the page since I always put the newest data at the top.

05/01/2021 – 21:12: DELIVERY (.47) Only one block away from the Big Red Barn. “What’s inside the barn?” Horses that once delivered milk and eggs to the residents of Charleston.
05/01/2021 – 21:16: LIKEWISE (.52)

05/01/2021 – 21:32: RABBIT (.53)
05/01/2021 – 21:32: FARMERS (.61)Whenever a term/phrase comes up twice, I tend to take a second look. For example, the term “October” doesn’t mean anything to Eliza Pinckney, but Charles was born in October and died in October, so therefore, showing up twice gives us that clue it’s Charles we’re talking to. With “farmers” coming up twice here, I tend to think of the crop of indigo and how it technically made the Pinckney family farmers, the word “harvest” is also among your word list.

05/01/2021 – 21:50: YES (.5)
05/01/2021 – 21:51: DIAGNOSE (.47) somewhat of a stretch, but I did mention that Eliza Lucas Pinckney had breast cancer that we know of based on her medical records.

05/01/2021 – 22:10: PHANTOM (.55)
05/01/2021 – 22:10: RIGHT (.46)
05/01/2021 – 22:13: COLOR (.46) Another vague term, but Eliza’s blue dye from the indigo would color clothing.
05/01/2021 – 22:14: NOAH (.47)
05/01/2021 – 22:16: JEREMIAH (.46)
