Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 10mG (milligauss), 26mG, 36mG. The REM function of the Mel Meter gave a blue reading indicating motion near the user.

Terms heard on the spirit boxes: “Benjamin” (often heard in/near Lodge Alley due to one of the residents that once lived there), “injury”, “Lou”, “132nd Street”, “disease”, “fire” (see “twelve” and “eleven” above), “thirty-five”. The Onvoy device gave us a scrambling of the word “Tuesday”.

Lodge Alley: The word “green” was heard on a spirit box.

Powder Magazine: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Theresa”, “owl”, “ghostwriter” (Allison and I were discussing our writing), “naked” (Anne Bonny had many lovers), “seventy-nine” (a big stretch, but the number “seven” is often heard around this area: Dr. Ladd’s birthday of 7/7, John Calhoun, buried nearby was our 7th Vice President, and the Powder Magazine served seven different wars), “twenty-two hundred” (the number 22 is relevant to Eliza Lucas, she was born in 1722, and married Charles Pinckney, buried nearby, at the age of 22), “red” (see “your hair” in the SBox findings above).

The Onvoy device provided the following “SPAT”, “RAM”, “JIM” (Jim wasn’t short for James until the 1820’s, a full century after the life of James Bonny, Anne’s first husband), and “PADRE”.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 17mG (milligauss), and 20mG.

Terms heard on the SBox: “happy marriage”, “two hundred and fifty dollars” (a bit of a stretch but noteworthy to mention Big John’s second jersey number was 52, the reversal of the phrase), “Cortez”, “one hundred years”, “Ukraine”, “1925”, “construction”, “one” (heard several times, along with the name “George” on the Digital spirit box word list could be relevant to George Washington, our first president, who served as a pallbearer at Eliza Lucas’s funeral).  

Lodge Alley: Terms heard on the spirit box: “Bob”, “O’Ryan”, “mom”, “pay attention”, and “Howard” (getting closer to St. Philip’s Cemetery where Sue Howard Hardy is buried). The EMF function of the Mel Meter had a small spike of 2.0mG when placed directly on the Belgian Blocks.

Philadelphia Alley: The Onvoy device gave the letters “BILAWAC”. I could find no relation to this inside the parts and machinery of a flintlock dueling pistol.

Powder Magazine: Terms heard on the spirit box: “Roger” (Calico Jack is dubbed with creating the original “skull and cross swords” flag for the Jolly Roger), “red” (Anne Bonny’s hair color), “list”, “walk”, “water” (not uncommon to see aquatic terms while discussing pirates), “boy”, “vulnerable”, “Charles” (Charles, Eliza’s husband, and Charles, Eliza’s nephew, are both buried on St. Philip’s eastern half of the cemetery), “Walter”, “home”. The Onvoy gave the word “gin” with an obvious nod to the drunken stupor of pirates due to the lack of drinking water.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Big John’s/Big Red Barn: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave a spike of 3.3mG (milligauss). The name “Derrick” was heard several times.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 3.6mG, 4.5mG, 5.3mG, 6.7mG, 7.0mG, 9.2mG, 13.3mG, 17.0mG and 27.5mG. A Yellow Reading came from the REM function of the Mel Meter possibly indicating motion near the user.

Terms heard on the spirit box: “extraordinaire”, “billion”, “Friday”, “Sunday the 17th”, “burning” (Pinckney Mansion was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1861), “I don’t want you to know”. The word “NO” spelled out on the Onvoy in answer to a direct question.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 4.6mG (milligauss), 13.7mG, 14.8mG, 14.9mG, 29.7mG.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “twelve” (see “twenty-seven” in the SBox findings), “twenty” (Big John’s first jersey number, the second number was also discovered), “by Grace”, “livin’ a while”, “loving life”, “plantation” (Eliza was indeed considered a plantation owner), “sick”, “fourteen” (the number of years that Eliza Lucas and Charles Pinckney were married: 1744-58), “nation”, “yes”, “people are happier”.

Lodge Alley: Center Belgian Blocks gave readings of 5.9mG, 6.7mG and 7.8mG when the Mel Meter was tested.

Terms heard on communication devices: The Onvoy gave the name “FRITZ”, “cash” and “conflict” were heard. Relevant to our next location at Philadelphia to discuss dueling (conflict).

Philadelphia Alley: An anomalous 8.4mG discovered on the EMF function of the Mel Meter. The term “boy” was spelled out on the Onvoy.

Powder Magazine: Terms discovered:

  • “Clarence”
  • “Thomas”
  • “fate”
  • “battle” We were at the Powder Magazine which held gunpowder for seven different wars and one rebellion.

  • “Nate”
  • “infant”
  • “eighty-one” John Calhoun was born in 1782, not 81.
  • “elephant” No relation to “elephant” to Calhoun that I could find. However, I did discover that South Carolina’s Republican Party holds a “Silver Elephant Gala Dinner” annually that started in 1968. The word “silver” was also heard in real time. Not finding direct connection to our location, but interesting nonetheless.
  • “the Bonnie” Anne Bonny, famous female pirate.
  • “infant”
  • “silver”
  • “guitar”
  • “she doesn’t remember”
  • “dog” Famous Anne Bonny quote to Calico Jack “I am sorry to see you here, but if you had fought like a man, you needn’t be hanged like a dog.”

  • “devastated”
  • “John” Calico Jack’s real name was John Rackham.
  • “lock”
  • “thirteen” The Powder Magazine was established in 1713.
  • “Benjamin” I couldn’t ignore this name since it showed up twice. Ironically, there is a Benjamin Smith House located at 49 Broad Street. See “Cooper” above.
  • “Street”
  • “lost”
  • “sink” A piratey term.
  • “Read” Anne Bonny’s companion/lover, Mary Read, aka, Mark Read.

SBox Spirit Box Audio

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 0:41 “we have learned one thing”
  • 7:28 “look my way” (song lyric)
  • 13:53 “impressive”
  • 20:11 “artist”
  • 28:17 “gifts”
  • 34:59 “Peter” There was a Peter Daulton that lived in Lodge Alley in 1796, though no other clues pertain to this specific person. See pages 12-13 of this archaeological dig report for the full list of residents of Lodge Alley.
  • 41:20 “you can do that”
  • 52:33 “south”
  • 58:36 “sweet dreams”
  • 1:05:48 “queens” Vague, but Philadelphia Alley does run between Cumberland Street and Queen Street.
  • 1:11:26 “ninety-nine” The photographer who found the apparition of Sue Howard Hardy took the photo 99 years after her death in 1987. This link does not have the cursed photo.
  • 1:18:09 “October” The duel between Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd and Ralph Isaacs would’ve taken place in late October since Dr. Ladd is said to have died 10 after the duel. His death date is November 2, 1786.
  • 1:24:18 “the whistle” Dr. Ladd was known as The Whistling Doctor.
  • 1:31:26 “seven” (song lyric) The number seven often comes through in this area of town. Most prominent reason is that Dr. Ladd’s birthday is July 7 or 7/7.
  • 1:38:51 “George”
  • 1:44:37 “money”

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Big John’s/Big Red Barn, aka “The Bigs”: The number “44” was heard on a spirit box, relative to the year that Eliza Lucas married Charles Pinckney; 1744. The letters “TRK” were spotted on the Onvoy, however, the cycles used for pedicabs in Charleston are Rickshaws.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of  8.4mG (milligauss), 9mG, 15.4mG, 17.0mG. The REM function of the Mel Meter gave readings of blue, purple, and red. Ironically, some of these colors were heard on the SB11-ANC device. The K-II EMF Meter gave readings of 15-25mG (25mG being the K-II’s max reading).

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Christian” (the Pinckneys were a religious family), “four” (the number of children by Eliza and Charles: Charles Cotesworth, Thomas, George, and Harriet), “John” (still close to Big John’s Tavern), “Abraham”, “hey there”, “please”, “blue”, “yellow”, “red”, “sixty-nine”, “three”, “William”, “excuse me” (as we were leaving, we waited for a small group to pass).

Lodge Alley: Terms/phrases heard on the spirit boxes:  “controversy”, “frozen”, “Utah”.

Philadelphia Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Kennedy”, “JACEK” (from the Onvoy, very close spelling of “Jack” for Calico Jack), “seventy-nine”.

Powder Magazine: Terms from spirit boxes: “Jack” (this was heard several times), “fifty-one”, “Michael”, “Joseph” (Dr. Ladd), “George”, “Eliza” (this isn’t the first time this name was heard near Eliza Lucas’s husband’s grave across the street. It’s also noteworthy that Charles’s first wife, Eliza Lamb, is also buried in St. Philip’s eastern cemetery), “Esther”, “sinner”, “you lost” (the duel?), “judge” (Anne Bonny and Mary Read went before judge Nicholas Lawes for their pirate trial), “live”, “January”.

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave spikes of 2.8mG (milligauss), 5.0mG, 5.6mG, 6.3mG, 9.4mG, 10.6mG, 12.4mG, 12.8mG and 21.4mG. The REM function of the Mel Meter gave readings of Yellow indicating motion near the user.

Terms/phrases heard on the spirit boxes: “twenty-four”, “loud”, “three”, “first”, “N”, “seven current”, “hands”, “twenty-four/seven”, “international”, and “bodies”.  

Lodge Alley: Terms/phrases heard on the spirit box: “glorious”, “faith”, “the places you’ll go”. The Onvoy device gave the letters “IR” which “RI” is often seen near Philadelphia Alley for Ralph Isaacs/Rhode Island (where Dr. Ladd was from).

St. Philip’s Church and Cemetery: The phrase “seven years and a revolution” was heard. This could be looked at in a number of ways but with “democrat” found on the SBox recording, this is relatable to John Calhoun, buried on the western side of St. Philip’s. Calhoun was our 7th Vice President.

Powder Magazine: An anomalous spike of 9.2mG found on the Mel Meter. This location has minimal findings of EMF readings. Flickering REM lights and a solid yellow reading indicate unstable motion near the user.

Terms heard on the spirit box: “help”, “fair”, “red” (Anne Bonny’s hair color), “Charlie” (Two Charles Pinckneys [Eliza’s husband and nephew] are buried on the eastern side of St. Philip’s), “six o clock” (Sue Howard Hardy died 6 days after stillborn child), “prevented”, “Mary” (relative to one of two Marys; Anne Bonny’s mother, Mary Brennan, or Anne Bonny’s companion/lover, Mary Read).

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “for nothing”, “fifty”, “America” (heard on SB11-ANC), “sure is”, “right now”, “yes”, “bills”. The new device, the Onvoy, gave the consecutive letters of “MRS”.

Lodge Alley: A spike of 2.6mG found on the EMF function of the Mel Meter. Terms heard on spirit boxes: “hello”, “Steve”, “Steven” (heard twice), “Q” (a vague occurrence, but there was a David Quigyn that lived in Lodge Alley in 1801, the same year of the other two names commonly heard; Benjamin and John. See pages 12-13 of this archaeological document for the full roster of residents).

Philadelphia Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “fighting blood” (YES! What a great phrase to hear before we discussed dueling). “MD” was discovered on the Onvoy device. To clarify our question during the investigation, the initials M.D. started being used in 1723, fifty years before Dr. Ladd would’ve become a doctor, so yes, the MD is appropriate for the time period.

Powder Magazine: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Harry”, “document” (heard while close to St. Philip’s Cemetery where Charles Pinckney, signer of the Constitution is buried), “return”, “country”, “Albert”, “Gilbert”, “Jackson” (heard while near the western side of the cemetery, where Vice President John C. Calhoun who served under President Andrew Jackson is buried), “Maria”, “marathon”, “seven” (Calhoun was our 7th Vice President), “Michael” (heard at the exact time that another tour was coming through the area. This tour, Pleasing Terrors, is lead by Mike Brown).

Pinckney Mansion Site: The Mel Meter gave spikes of 5.2mG (milligauss), 12.5mG, and 30mG+.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “loser”, “hot stuff” (The Pinckney Mansion burned in the Great Fire of 1861), “mid 70’s” Eliza Lucas Pinckney was 70 when she died. This was a direct answer to the question of how old she was), “your child is doing the math” (odd phrasing, but Eliza Lucas was involved with teaching the John Locke idea of tabula rasa), “all or nothing”, “five to one”.

Lodge Alley: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “Cincinnati” (part of the team was from Cincinnati) , “you’re doing well”.

Powder Magazine: The Mel Meter REM function gave off a blue reading, indicating possible motion near the user.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “pirate” (doesn’t get any more clearer than this), “word of God” (religious terms are often heard near St. Philip’s Church), “blame it on me”, “Joe” (Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd), “Thomas”, “girls just wanna have fun” (song lyric often heard while discussing Anne Bonny and Mary Read), “angel”, “burning down the house”, “travel the seven seas” (another piratey phrase), “seven” (in multiples, Dr. Ladd’s birthday is July 7 or 7/7).

The Onvoy device spelled out the answer that was being asked of the Mel Meter: “RED”, (Anne Bonny’s hair color).

SBox Spirit Box Audio

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 0:24 “returns”
  • 5:40 “your heart” What color is the Big Red Barn?
  • 15:18 “my love”
  • 20:57 “twenty-three” Big John’s Death Date was September 23.
  • 27:19 “put him there”
  • 33:26 “may” Eliza Lucas died in May of 1793.
  • 40:24 “run its course”
  • 46:43 “not know how to respond”
  • 53:52 “tomorrow” Vague, but tomorrow at this time would be Big John Cannady’s birthday (September 5)
  • 59:18 “male”
  • 1:07:01 “to be brought up in”
  • 1:14:26 “the reason”
  • 1:20:15 “forever”
  • 1:26:33 “how he’s reaching out”
  • 1:27:29 “soldier” At the Powder Magazine. Psychics on past investigations all claim to see a soldier standing near the bushes of the Powder Magazine, all with the same description. The odd thing about that description is they all see a “blue” uniform. If this is a Civil War soldier, the uniform would be gray, not blue.
  • 1:33:39 “Halloween”
  • 1:42:14 “sick”

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave readings of 3.4mG (milligauss), 6.0mG, 6.8mG, 15.0mG, 17.0mG. The K-II EMF Meter had spikes of 15mG.

Terms heard on the spirit boxes: “Miami seven”, “twenty-seven Mansion”, “blaze”, “destroy” (here we have a full explanation “destroy mansion blaze”. The Pinckney Mansion was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1861), “fifty-nine”, “fifty-one”, “June” (George Lucas, Eliza’s infant son died in June 1747), “two hundred and fifty dollars”.

Lodge Alley: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave a reading of 11.3mG as we exited the alley.

The name “BEN” came up on the new device, the Onvoy. The names “Benjamin” and “John” are found here every six to seven weeks. See pages 12-13 of this archaeological document for the full list of residents. This investigation took place on Weeks 2-3 of the loop of 6-7 weeks. Anomalous.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “I need a new phone”, “Cash”, “food shopping”, “Bobby”.

Philadelphia Alley: The phrase “baby mama” was heard on a spirit box. See “conception” in the digital spirit box word list above.

Powder Magazine: Terms heard on spirit boxes: “one”, “anytime”, “fire”, “change”, “June” (Sue Howard Hardy died in June of 1888), “Martin”, “delivery purposes”, “Mary” (one of two Marys: Mary Read [Anne’s friend/lover] or Mary Brennan [Anne Bonny’s mother]), “Ellie”, “Mason” , “hang her” (Anne Bonny and Mary Read were both due to hanging before they “pleaded their bellies”), “Johnny” (heard twice. Calico Jack Rackham’s real name was John Rackham), “Jackson” (this name has shown here in the past and could be relatable to John Calhoun who served as Vice President under President Andrew Jackson. Calhoun is buried on the western half of St. Philip’s Cemetery).

The Onvoy device gave the term “END” along with “AM”. The intials “AM” are interesting, because Anne Cormac (Bonny) changed her name when they arrived here from McCormack to Cormac, making her birth initials A.M.

SBox Spirit Box Audio
Marker 38:35, Pinckney Mansion Site. “Have the party come in” See Notes below.

These are the terms/phrases I discovered during my spot check of the SBox spirit box audio. Those that are noteworthy have an explanation and/or links in their description. Others are there to help you learn what to listen for as you go through this type of audio.

  • 2:11 “positive”
  • 8:03 “that guy”
  • 13:14 “dominate”
  • 21:07 “Brooks”
  • 26:36 “running on the left” Vague, but Thomas Pinckney was shot in his left leg during the Battle of Camden.
  • 32:14 “just a person”
  • 38:35 “have the party come in” Disembodied voice going over five different station changes. Notice how the voice stays steady over the station changes in both volume and speech pattern. This is proof that disembodied voices can and will come through slow radio sweeps that allow radio chatter to convey messages. This is a rare find indeed!
  • 44:20 “the demons”
  • 50:45 “feel this young” (song lyric)
  • 57:15 “human race”
  • 1:04:36 “who it is”
  • 1:11:09 “chosen men” Same time that “FM” showed up on the Onvoy, initials of Freemasons. The Freemasons had a Masonic Lodge in Lodge Alley.
  • 1:19:53 “beginning”
  • 1:25:50 “fifty-nine, seventy-nine” Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd from the Philadelphia Alley dueling story lived at 59 Church Street.
  • 1:32:15 “challenges”
  • 1:40:39 “just for you”
  • 1:50:57 “sixteen hours” (song lyric)

Real Time Events based on Location:

Names of locations in Green are links to the original investigations conducted by Stories in the Cemetery and will hold extra resources of each location.

Pinckney Mansion Site: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave readings of 2.5mG (milligauss), 4.4mG, 5.6mG, 6.7mG, 7.8mG, 12.8mG, 15.8mG, 20mG, and 37.2mG. The REM function of the Mel Meter gave readings of Red and Yellow indicating motion near the user. The K-II EMF Meter had spikes of 10-15mG.

Terms heard on spirit boxes: “freedom”, “we’re watching”, “out late” (heard on SB11-ANC), “slow down”, and “freak accident”.

Lodge Alley: The EMF function of the Mel Meter gave readings of 5.2mG, 6.1mG and 6.2mG, when placed on the Belgian Blocks.

Terms heard from spirit boxes: “Christian”,  and “FM” was found on the Onvoy standing for Freemasons.

Powder Magazine: Terms heard on various spirit boxes: “several”, “yeah, and “do not” were heard on the SB11-ANC and were direct responses to the user; see EVP Audio above. “Joseph” (still near Philadelphia Alley where we discussed Dr. Joseph Brown Ladd), “Dave and Allison Fletcher”.

The Onvoy gave us the initials “NT” (the Nicholas Trott House is on the other side of the Powder Magazine) and spelled out the name “Ted”.

  • 37:13 “the original Louisiana Purchase” Very interesting indeed! The Louisiana Purchase was only successful due to the Pinckney Treaty that was signed by Thomas Pinckney (Eliza’s son) just seven years before the Louisiana Purchase. See this article for full details.
  • 42:28 “nickname” It’s not uncommon to find my name while at the Pinckney Mansion site. This one is a bit implied, but it has come up directly in the past.
  • 49:55 “Jesus”
  • 55:20 “don’t know what it’s like” (song lyric)
