    I just got chills reading this! I have also been to Guernsey Hollow, me and my friends went when we were seniors and we definitely didn’t have has much equipment or a plan as drawn out as this but we had a couple digital cameras, a video camera, and our own beliefs in the paranormal. I have crazy pictures from that night and I also kissed the cross. It was an experience of a life time and I hope to go back there in the future with a plan more like this one. We also experienced the raining outside of the cemetery and not in the cemetery. After kissing the cross we were standing at the back right corner of the cemetery almost under that pine tree and I felt like someone was crushing in my chest and I couldn’t breathe. And at the same time I had what felt like needles going down my spine. It was crazy!
    It was cool reading this and being able to re-live my own Guernsey experience!!

    me, my sister shaina, candace, cheyenne, ashley, mike, and another morgan just got home from geurnsey like 20 minutes ago and we found a pile of bones large enough to be human bones in the left rear of the cemetery. (have photos) and heard multiple foot steps. we saw a medium sized deer on the way there and on the way back it was in reletively the same spot and just fallowed our cars with its head as we drove away. me, my sister, and morgan r. were in my sisters car, she just got brand new brakes less than 2 months ago and has had no problems with them at all and right before the big hill her brakes completely quit working. we honked numerous times to the others who were in front of us in candase’s car and they couldn’t hear us. shainas phone died, morgan had no service, and i had no calling, we had to pull the e-brake all the way back to stop, put the car in park and locked our doors. i sent candase a text saying please come back shaina’s brakes just quit and like ten minutes later they finaly came back and mike drove my sisters car down the hill with out brakes. it was sooo scary. cheyenne, ashley, and mike kissed the cross, me, shaina, candase and morgan didn’t. it was one of the scariest things ive ever experienced, yet i can’t wait to go back!

    I’ve been there several times.
    The first time was this past summer. We had a group of people and took two cars.
    When we arrived we walked up and once we reached the gates the tempature noticeably dropped and the air felt heavy. It was early July so there wasn’t any reason why it would of been that could. We made our way to the cross being terrified and none of us would kiss it. We heard inhuman groans and sounds coming from the outer parts of the cemetary. But, they didn’t seem to be coming from outside. We soon went back to the car and returned a few minutes later. I don’t remember anything happening after that.
    About 1-2 weeks later I went with less people and it was raining. There was dog the whole way there but as we turned and went down guernsey hollow road the dog seemed to disappear.
    We then parked and started walking to the cemetary. The group was much calmer this time around but still frightened. Once we entered the air felt heavy and cold as it did before. We saw orbs and heard noises as before but just started to think it was animals in the woods. I began trying to talk to whatever might inhabit the cemetary. Saying hello, would anyone like to talk to us tonight. We didn’t hear that much since it was raining so hard. I began to ask about Sarah, we got no response but some noises that spooked us. It was raining hard so we left. As we where walking past the gate I said goodbye Sarah and kept walking. We were past the gate and walked about 10 feet down the path and lightning striked within 10 feet of us. We all fell to the ground and instantly got up and sprinted to the car. There wasn’t any lightning before that and it was so close to us. I don’t know if it was a coincidence or not but it was truly horrifying.
