I've been dragging a bit on the blogging lately. Long hours at work and family pressures have kept me too busy to write, but I am going on several adventures in the next few weeks that may bring more wonderful ghost stories. I am going to Cheboygan, Michigan in a few weeks to make plans for our old family house and bring some family heirlooms home in case the house is sold. The Newton-Allaire house is haunted and it will be fun returning to the house where my passion for the paranormal began. Although it might be a challenge getting my boys to sleep in this old, haunted house, it will certainly be heaven for me.
While I'm there, I thought I might explore some other famous Michigan haunts. One of the more famous and fascinating ghost stories that comes from Cheboygan is the story of Hikyes tomb. According to legend, the farmer who lived here went insane and killed his entire family and then killed himself. It is said that if you cross over the tomb, you will be filled with dread. If you take a stone from the tomb, you are carrying the tomb's curse with you. Many report seeing ghosts and describe paranormal activity from this site.
Finding this one may be a challenge as I can't find any description of the location, however, I have never minded humiliating myself by asking everyone I meet if they know where Hykes tomb is located. Maybe someone in the family knows.
