The Lawrence House; June 08, 2013

Case Background and Claims:

383_Lawrence_house_4The family that built and lived in the home was, William and Elisabeth Lawrence.
Elisabeth Lawrence Died 1940. William Lawrence Died 1922 their children were Ralph, Wilber, Edger.
The Lawrence family was a prominent family that lived in Sarnia Ontario and owned much of the logging industry in the area. The home in its era was a true show place and was a home of prominence in the area. After the owners donated the home to the city it fell into much disarray until grants were established to return the great home to its original splendor. There are many reports of activity in the house from seeing shadow people hearing voices and footsteps to the elevator going up and down between floors for no apparent reason.
Elisabeth Lawrence Died 1940, William Lawrence Died 1922 both rare the primary spirits believed to still be in their old home. The Lawrence home is currently being used as a beautiful art gallery.

*** 9:00pm Basement of Lawrence House

During this session we believe we made contact with Elisabeth Lawrence using flashlights for yes and no responses. Also my MEL ADD meter responded to many temperature changes while questions were being asked. John’s audio recorder shut itself off while John was asking Elisabeth to make contact with him, note the recorders batteries were at 75% when they were checked and the audio recorder was restarted. While in the basement John and others noticed a chair move in the room and seen a shadow move across the room.

Brenda thought she heard someone crying while we were in the room.We once again tried to contact spirits using our mag lights and believe we made contact with a spirit named Matt.
Bert and others smelled tobacco while we were sitting in the room.

Weird but it occurred,  the Ovilus said : “Cross”, “Choke”, then said “Ron”.. This is the name of a gentleman in the room named Ron Cross who just lost his Mother in January when she had choked on a sandwich and died in her home. This happened while her son was studying for a test.
