I wanted to point out a common thread (revelation) as to the manner in which my ancestors have visited me (Mystical Touching).This has been a source of much fascination with me, after considerable reflection in recent months of all my paranormal experiences thus far (See "related files" section of this family page).And here's what I have realized....MOST IMPORTANTLY:Other than the experiences with my mother's mom, Angela--the others (experiences) all relate to the SAME FAMILY, direct-line, from "GRANDMOTHER TO GRANDCHILDREN". Each experience without exception, fell on the BIRTHDAY OF THE VISITING ANCESTOR!More specifically, Polly Peeler (Christmas Roses, 25 Dec 2002) is the mother to Jonah Park (The Baby, 3 Aug 2000).Jonah's children include John McMonigle married to Martha Cobb (7 Dec 1999)!As you may notice by virtue of the dates of the experiences, they began with the most recent generation, John McMonigle (2nd GGF), progressed next to Jonah Park (3rd GGF), and culminated with Jonah's mother, Polly Peeler (my 4GGM)--in order of most recent birth (1827) to earliest birth (1774)!Births at either end of the experience spectrum were in the month of December (John McMonigle, 7 Dec 1827 and Grandma Polly, 25 Dec 1774).And when did these experiences begin?....like dominoes lined up, after my father and I "unearthed" andre-erected Jonah Park's (my 3GGF) beautiful red-tinted, tombstone in 1999(was completely buried). The only way I found this stone is that I noticed the feeling of something hard and flat underneath my feet.As I knelt to dig with my hands, it was then that I saw the words "Jonah Park" (See Photo). It took everything my Dad and I could muster to take the 250 lb. stone out of the ground and set it up. Notice how flat to the surface Jonah's stone was (taken after moving dirt and pulling the ivy away).If I had not walked upon it, it would still be UNdiscovered today!
