Carnegie Library & Log Cabin; April 13, 2013

Case Background & Claims:

383_Carnegie_LibraryConrad Kammer, the original owner of the museum’s log cabin, immigrated to the States with his two brothers, John & William. The Ovilus came up with the name “Lynn” and this is a nickname for Caroline. The name William was also captured by one of the teams in the log cabin. I also remember seeing the name Lynn on the report. That being said, William is a common name and there is no evidence that Conrad’s wife went by Lynn, but it is worthy to note.  Conrad & Caroline had two children that died very young (infant/toddlers), Frederick & Anna.

Cabin Activity:

354_CabinOur team received many responses threw our flashlights to questions we were asking. We believe we made contact with a little girl spirit of the cabin. We also believe we made contact with John’s Mother and Sister while in the log cabin. Our team smelled a musty smell enter the cabin just prior to us ending our session in the log cabin. Also noted Brenda believes she seen a small dark shadow just to the left of the door. John also seen a older man spirit leaning just to the right of the door, watching the investigators in the cabin.


Second session held with the whole team:

Tim’s Frank Box Session:
Help, Ray, Hello, Yes, No, Brenda, Hey, Might Help, Help, William, Lynn, What, Linda, Anita.


Activity while in the Cabin:
During this session we experienced many responses to our questions lighting our Maglights. T3 believes he had a nail thrown at his leg while he was sitting next to John in the back room of the Cabin. Brenda had her camcorder go out of focus a few times when John’s MEL ADD was responding to a frequency change. During our session in the cabin our team noticed multiple flashlight responses to our questions happening in both rooms at the same time. At 42.00 minutes into this session John’s audio recorder shut itself off, when checked it was found to have 70% battery life left on the audio recorder. Note this has happened to many of our investigators at this location thru the entire investigation at this location.
