Ghost Hunters – Dr. S. Mudd and Edgewood Plantation
This week our favorite T.A.P.S. members traveled to Dr. Samuel A. Mudd’s house.
Dr. Mudd was sent to prison for 4 years under the charge of conspiarcy to assassinate the president. Booth stumbled to the good Doctor’s home 6 hours after the assassination of President Lincoln – and without knowledge of the murder, he treated Booth’s broken leg.
4 years after his incarnation President Andrew Johnson pardoned Dr. Mudd.
There were sighting of apperations in the home, plus the death of a 8 month old child and the sighting of a rocking chair that moved on it’s own.
During their investigation Grant and Jason had some personal expirences in the childrens room. Grant felt as if something had hit his hand and Jason felt “static” causing his arm hair to rise up.
Outside of that not much happened to anyone else. All the activity seemed to stick to Jason and Grant.
The kids room
An EVP that sounded like “I am not guilty.”
And a hit on the thermal camera of a human shape walking past both Jason and Grant. They followed but nothing was there and there were no heat signatures from foot prints.
In my opinion one of the craziest catches ever on Ghost Hunters.
The second location they visited was the Edgewood Plantation in Charles City Virginia.
Home to both Presidents William Henry and Benjamin Harrison – the house was also used during the civil war as a look out post for the Confederates against the Union soldiers. A soldier was hidden in the attic of the building and he kept look out and hit in the eaves behind a trap door.
It was also said that Lizzy Roland once lived there – engaged to a soldier that never returned, it is said you can see her standing in the window waiting for him to come back to here.
(I do not find this romantic. I feel bad for Miss Lizzy Roland, because if that is true, the poor girl can’t even find her love in death…)
Another story the T.A.P.S. members were told was that in the Cottage a woman and her husband stayed and were woken by soldiers who they spoke with all morning – one was named Aaron Young III. (Kris Williams later proved that there was a Aaron Young in Virginia’s Twentieth Regiment – sorry I’m not sure if it was cavalry or infantry.)
The expirences at the Edgewood Plantation were limited. Tango and Steve debunked the door to the eaves, when they slammed the bedroom door the upper door would open, and Kris and Amy didn’t have any expirences at all.
The most that happened was a weird EMF reading on a tricycle that seemed to move with the object.
(and incase you want to visit – yes, Edgewood Plantation IS a Bed & Breakfast.)
Next week on Ghost Hunters the team heads to Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania to visit a ranch built on one of the bloodies battle fields of the Revolutionary War (the battle of Brandywine) and to the home of General Robert E. Lee (Lee-Fendall House.)
