Shine Your Lantern Three Times

Anson, Texas, United States

Local legend says that one December night more than a hundred years ago, a mother sent her son into the woods to retrieve a Christmas tree for the family. Reportedly, the mother told her son to flash his lantern three times if he got into any trouble. When the boy did not return, his mother searched for him until she herself died. Near the woman’s burial site, there is a crossroads. It is said that if one parks his car and flashes the headlights three times, a mysterious light will rise and traverse across the road. One will then hear a voice yelling, “Mommy they got me. I’m over here.” The light then turns red and flies toward the voice.

Dickinson Mansion

Delaware, Dover, United States

Haunted by John Dickinson’s ghost, the “pen of the American Revolution,” this mansion was built in 1739 in Dover, Delaware by Dickinson’s father, Judge Samuel Dickinson.  In 1781, the mansion was damaged by the British during a raid, and years later in 1804 the mansion was almost destroyed due to a massive fire.

John Dickinson spent his boyhood here, from 1776-1777 and again from 1781-1782.  In 1952, the National Society of Colonial Dames of America bought the mansion and it is now a national historic landmark that is open to the public as a museum.

It has been noted that one can hear writing sounds coming from Dickinson’s old study and that his spirit has been seen wandering the mansion’s grounds.  Electronic recordings, EVPs, of his voice has also been captured.
