'Can't You Hear the Babies Crying?'

A woman and her daughter's visit to the Jamestown State Park in Virginia results in an interesting experience, possibly related to historical events.

Yvonne wrote in to tell of a weird experience she had in Jamestown State Park:

“We live in Richmond, Virginia. There are so many wonderful historical locations in our area and I was determined that my young daughter experience them all. One afternoon when she was about two and a half we took the 45-minute drive to Jamestown State Park. At that time, the state park was a wide open field with a few historical markers, a historical church, and a statue of Pocahontas. I thought it was ideal because it would allow my daughter to run around til her heart's content. I figured that when she tuckered herself out, we'd have a nice lunch in Williamsburg and go home. Easy peezy, right? No.

When we arrived at the Jamestown State Park, we wandered around the courtyard of the church. My daughter became absorbed with the statue of Pocahontas for a few moments and then we walked on. It was just her, the Ranger, and I in the park and it had no other visitors that day. I was happy to have the place to ourselves. I started walking toward the walkway thinking my daughter was right behind me. I turned around and noticed that my daughter had stopped walking. I thought that it was because she wanted to go back to the statue so I said, 'Look, Tatiana, let's go see the park.' She still refused to budge. I took her by the little hand and started walking with her up up the pathway toward the foundation markings of the original settlement. She suddenly stopped and refused to go any further. She turned her little face towards the James River. I told her we could take a quick walk around and then we could go have some lunch. She looked up at me with her big brown eyes and said: 'Can't you hear the babies crying in the water?' She had such a look of concern on her tiny face that I did what every mommy would do, I picked her up by the back of her overalls and carried her out of the park like a little purse, put her in the car, and peeled out of there.

About a decade later archaeologists discovered that a majority of the original Jamestown settlement had been reclaimed by the James River. I often wonder if it was the spirits of the settlers she was hearing but her mind couldn’t work out where the noise was coming from because that area is now covered by the water of the James.”

NOTE: When I was in high school, I was a part of a history group that visited several sites in Colonel Virginia. We actually stayed overnight in the dorms at William and Mary College (which was interesting in itself). I had an unsettling experience at the Jamestown Settlement. This was in the mid-1970s when there was a lot of archaeological work being conducted. I have talked to other people who have visited the location over the years, and the overall 'sense' of death still pervades it. I rarely have issues at historical sites where there has been known death and tragedy, but Jamestown is definitely an exception. Lon

ABDUCTIONS! ALIEN, BIGFOOT, & OTHERS | Join Us For LIVE CHAT | Questions & Answers #Abductions

An early and well-known alien abduction claim occurred in the mid-1950s with the Brazilian Antônio Vilas-Boas case, which did not receive much attention until several years later. Then in the 1960s, worldwide publicity was generated by the Betty and Barney Hill abduction case. The Hill incident became the prototypical abduction case, possibly the first in which the claimant described beings that later became widely known as the Greys.

But abduction scenarios aren't confined to extraterrestrial beings. The story of Albert Ostman, a 64-year-old retired lumberman from British Columbia, went public in 1957 with his account of being snatched from his sleeping bag while camping on Vancouver Island.

There have also been remarkable stories of kidnappings and involuntary relocations by other experiencers.

So, please listen to the following accounts I have received from witnesses who recall their encounters, and then decide for yourself. I hope that you enjoy the presentation.
