Background: The informant is speaking about a house he and his family no longer live in. The house in question is in an older area of New Orleans. This is a personal experience from the informant that he remembers due to its significance in his life.
KD: So, the gentleman that owned the house before us was steamship captain, and my son, for years, had said he had seen the man walking around the house.
Me: Did the man have a tragic passing or any reason to haunt the area?
KD: Well, the man died in the house, but of course we didn’t tell him (our son) that. He would describe him going, “You know. The man in the uniform. T-the the captain’s uniform.”
Me: Was there any other evidence of the ghost besides your son’s sightings?
KD: Oh, the lab would also look down the hall and her ears would perk up and she would seem tense. The rest of my family swears the house is haunted.
Both the informant and myself think this is a really interesting story due to its believability; however, it leaves me personally wishing for more evidence. While intriguing, there are not very many details. I feel this story could go either way in its truth value.
