If it wasn't for this group of misfits there would have been no Bachelors Grove Cemetery & Settlement Research Center or the Grove Restoration Project. Secret beginnings to a great life at Bachelors Grove (Circa 1997 utilizing 35 mm black & white film).
The following video was captured by Pete Crapia during his first visit to Bachelors Grove cemetery in October of 1996 utilizing a Panasonic VHS Reporter video camera. The highest headstone in the center view is the Fulton family monument. During filming some sort of movement was witnessed in front of the monument while looking through the single-eye black-and-white view finder. Using the naked eye absolutely nothing could be witnessed. Dismissing the movement, the filming continued by panning around the cemetery. A black looking levitating mass was later discovered on the footage.
This particular video footage is primarily responsible for the future involvement of Pete Crapia investigating paranormal phenomena occurring at Bachelors Grove cemetery.
The following video was captured by Pete Crapia during his second visit to Bachelors Grove cemetery in October of 1996 utilizing a Panasonic VHS Reporter video camera.
