Upon talking to Matt and Thomas of the South Carolina Paranormal Investigations, we learned that the children’s section gets a lot of activity. Around 9:30 or 10:00 at night trains will pass close by the cemetery. During this time, people can see,hear, or feel the presence children. Some of the claims of the cemetery are that when a person walks through the oldest part of the cemetery their cell phone will have a busy signal, even if its not busy. Many unexplained lights have been spotted in the woods surronding the cemetery. One claim is that when you take a picture the flash will not work. People have also claimed to spot apparations of children and a white mist.
