Hi, I have been to Bachelors Grove many times and have taken many pictures but never picked up anything other than orbs until last year. Both of these photos were taken with a Sony Cybershot 5.0 megapixel digital camera in early October 2007. They were taken at some time between 6:30 and 7:30 pm. As you can see the sky in the one picture, it was not a very sunny day... sweatshirt weather, not hot nor cold. The picture of the tomb stone was just one of many random pictures we were taking around the cemetery. When I look at the image in the trees it looks to me as if we were being watched by someone in a white, possibly long sleeved button down shirt and I can almost make out a collar on the shirt. The face I cant explain, it looks like very large black eyes or just a lot of darkness in that area. My sister, Debbie Unger took that photo and I had a picture of her taking that photo, but I was not focused in the exact same position. I was focusing more to her left where there is another head stone along the fence just to the left of the entrance as you walk in. In the photo that I took there is a child sitting on the stone what appears to be wearing a red shirt. Unfortunately, I am unable to locate that photo right now but will send it to you if I do.

The other photo on the path was taken as we were leaving the cemetery. We took many pictures on our way in as we were hearing a strange growling noise but didn't capture anything. As we were leaving down the path, every 15 steps or so, my sister turned around and took a picture towards the cemetery. This is the only picture that came up with an image. It looks to us like a soldier, possibly in a civil war uniform. If you look close you can almost see the buttons down the front of the jacket. It also looks like he is holding something across his waist area... possibly a riffle. What is not circled in this photo though is what appears to be a head. It is just to the left of the top of the circle. We have never seen anything like this in any of our photos before and were very excited as you can imagine when we got home and examined them. Please take a look at them and let us know what you think. We are very eager to get your opinion. If you would like to use our pictures for your website, by all means do so. You may also use our names and post my e-mail.

Thank you for your time, Denise Piotrowski
