Miscellaneous Gallery Pictures and Information
Pictures taken at Mount Vernon Cemetery out from Calvert, TX. by member John Causey. The first pic is one detailing a creepy blue mist in an area known for paranormal activity and right about where we sighted the dark figure detailed in our story “The Menacing Figure.”Then this pic is followed by some pics of interesting dancing lights. Although the four “orb” pics appear to show nothing more than “orbs,” you must be there to understand. When in close proximity to the cemetery one will see strange lights dancing through the cemetery and through the treetops. This particular night John heard a bizarre whirring sound so typical of the area along with the usual other abnormalities occurring concurrently. The dancing lights seemed to accompany the whirring sound that particular night and were promptly documented by him.
Scans (18 pages) from a book found by member John Causey detailing some information about D.A Orviss interred in the Orviss Vault in Calvert, TX. Also included is a map of his trade routes, a drawing of the Orviss home in Calvert, and also a picture of D.A. Orviss.
Our first, second, third, and now our current TFC logo.
The first pic is a blow up and closer analysis of a very bizarre pic taken on 10-16-09 while we were being filmed by KPRC out at the Orviss vault. At the instant it was taken. we all got bizarre battery drains (including KPRC’s television camera), EMF spikes, and a wicked cold spot. It looks as if an apparition is hovering over Casey. Here this pic is blown up in much more detail. The second is a dark shadow figure caught by John’s camera as it sat on a tripod and shot random pics in the area behind the Orviss vault. This is a blow up of a previously shown pic but this version in filled in by a viewer according to a figure as they felt they were seeing it in this original unexplained picture that we took. You be the judge.
New Falls Hotel pics from our 6-11-11 investigation showing the grandeur of the hotel. These are pics taken by my good friend, Janet Bates. From left to right: The ballroom, our vehicles in front of the hotel, pic shot from the second floor loooking down into the hotel foyer, historical marker in front of the hotel, old phone booths in the lobby, one of the now closed underground tunnels in the basement once linking the hotel to the now defunct bath houses across the street, basement area, basement staircase.
Interesting set of pictures taken on 5-21-11 at the Calvert City Cemetery in Calvert, TX. Picture # 2 shows one of the many graves positioned at a slant. These graves are of typhoid/yellow fever victims. The superstition at the time was that this slant would guard against the return of the epidemic. Picture # 4 is of one of the many stones with Hebrew inscriptions on them in the Jewish cemetery in Calvert, Tx. Picture # 5 is of a badge placed in order to mark the grave of one of the many Confederate soldiers buried there in Calvert. The other pics are of some of the many beautiful angels position atop of some of the graves, specifically the 2 angels in the beautiful Drennan plot.
Update from March 2011: This pic was discovered by John as he was re-reviewing evidence from one of our 2009 investigations at Cocoamoda Chocolate Factory in Calvert, TX. In this shot we seem to have captured a shadowy figure peering through a door in the area where several people have reported seeing a shadowy apparition. The second pic is an enlarged version with the figure circled. We have not been able to debunk this given the circumstances at the time.
Anomalous Pics…Four bizarre pics taken by John that we have not yet figured out. The first is a very bizarre pic taken on 10-16-09 while we were being filmed by KPRC out at the Orviss vault. At the instant it was taken. we all got bizarre battery drains (including KPRC’s television camera), EMF spikes, and a wicked cold spot. It looks as if an apparition is hovering over Casey. The second is a dark shadow figure caught by his camera as it sat on a tripod and shot random pics in the area behind the Orviss vault. The third is a combo pic showing a regular and then a close up view of something that looks like a face in a back door at the Von minden hotel in an area where there have been multiple sightings of a young black male apparition. The fourth is of a whispy white figure caught in a burial plot in close proximity to the Orviss vault.
Check out this pic of Mojo (Courtesy of the Bryan/College Station Eagle), the most colorful, and up till 2002, the longest unburied “dead” resident of Calvert, TX. The full story of Mojo by The Eagle can be viewed under the “Our Stories/Media Stories” section of the website. It was an absolute must to add to the site because it is such a twisted memory from Casey’s childhood. During her childhood days in Calvert, she reports many times coaxing her poor, unsuspecting childhood buddies into actually viewing a mummified corpse and in turn enjoying their horrified responses
