Chair: Aliens & UFO's at Dead Ringer Paranormal
My name is Kathy Snow however in the Paranormal world I am simply known as katie! My team and I take the paranormal field very seriously and have been up and down the eastern seaboard investigating known and unknown locations. My team consists of all family members giving us the opportunity to work well together with no drama. I am a national as well as internationally published paranormal writer. Our evidence has been shown on My ghost story caught on camera and we work hard within our community to bring awareness and understanding to the field. There are four ordained ministers on the team. After 16 years in the field we no longer do in house investigations as we are out trying to find unknown haunted locations and we consult on cases other teams may have questions on. After founding 3 teams, we have recently relocated and our new team name is Dead Ringer Paranormal. We are proud of the work we do and try to show the community it is a scientific field of study and a lot of work goes into what we all do. We are an old world team meaning we investigate with just what we need, we do not hook up wires and tons of equipment, we believe in studying the paranormal in traditional proven ways. I am excited and proud to have been asked to be a rep for NPS..

The Amstel House

By: Katie Snow
2 E 4th Street
New Castle, DE 19720
(302) 322-2794

 

Built in 17th century The Amstle House and The Finney Inn, were homes of means. They are two homes that face each other and were owned by a father and son who had a connecting tunnel beneath ground for passage between the two. Amstel House, Now a Museum, is said to be the most paranomally active with most of the activity taking place on the third floor. Windows will open and close of their own accord, items soar through the air and are found in alternate locations then where originally placed.

Many of the locals as well as visitors have spoke of a women in a blue dress that haunts the well to do home. She has been seen for over a century on and off gazing out the windows. No one knows for sure who she may be, however, there are three likely possibilities. A woman named Elizabeth who’s child died moments after birth and she herself passed shortly after, another woman named Elizabeth who watched her whole family be consumed by TB or Ms Anna Finney herself.

The Patty Cannon Home

cdDelancy Road, just off Rt. 40 at the Delaware/Maryland line

In 1760 a new life came into the world. Her name was Patty Cannon.
Not a nice person by all accounts she was a leader of a gang that
kidnapped free slaves and sent them back to the plantation owners.
From 1821 thru 1829 Patty took on another role. That of Murderess.
It is said she murdered anywhere from 4 to 11 plus men, women and
children by means of beating or shooting. Finally a body was found
in her basement and before her trial she took her own life. Later her
head was stolen from her paupers grave and now resides in the library of Dover, the Capitol city of Delaware. It is said she wanders her home, prehaps looking for her head.

Delaware

fRockwood Mansion / Museum By Katie Snow
610 Shipley Road
Wilmington, Delaware 19809

Built in 1851 for Quaker Merchant Joseph Shipley, this Gothic Revival Home was held by his descendants the Bringhurst Family until it was donated to New Castle County in 1973 and turned into a park and event facility.

It is said it is one of the most haunted locations in Delaware. From footsteps in the dark to giggling children at play when none are present, this mansion was shown on my ghost story presented by the Bio Channel.
It not only holds events but also ghost tours and investigations of this large almost chilling property.

Fort Delaware

rPea Patch Island
Delaware City, DE 19706

Built in 1859 Fort Delaware was a fortress for the captured Confederates of the civil war. Built to protect the port of Wilmington as well as Philadelphia it is now a State Park and Museum. Located on a tiny island
known as Pea Patch Island, it is an amazing fact that it was once occupied by over 16,000 people and prisoners.

It is said that there are quite a few spirits that roam this old fort such as the woman who is said to have been a cook for the long gone officers. It appears (no pun intended) that she will show herself as a full
apparition in period dress doing cooking tasks.
