This is a picture of the smoky sign, yet no smoke was there
when we took the pic

Last week a couple friends and I took a trip to Dartford Cemetery in Green Lake, Wisconsin. We spent about an hour and a half there. My wife and her friend got sick and left the cemetery within 20 minutes. Two of my friends stayed with me by the mosoleum and were chilling. I heard a female's voice at times when there were no females present, my friend rob also heard footsteps alot. Another weird coincidence was that the cemetery was divided into two parts, a new cemetery and an old cemetery. We really weren't sure which was which so we went to the new cemetery first. At the new cemetery we walked up the main road and within five minutes we realized we were in the new cemetery. My friends wanted to go to the old part of the cemetery, but for some reason I said, "No, lets walk up to the top of this road," which stood a monument. The monument had about 10 names on it and one of them was PAUL PAGEL, which is my middle name and last name. After that happened, we went to the old cemetery. Nothing too crazy happened there until we started looking at the pictures when we got home. We noticed alot of smoke in a picture of the Dartford sign, yet there was nobody smoking or no fog. There is also a face that can be made out in the smoke. There was also smoke in a picture when were standing on top of a mosoleum.

I'm definitely going back in Spring '09 when it's not so cold.


Below: Here is some additional pics from the cemetery. I know there is alot going on here. I highly recommend this cemetery for anybody in the Wisconsin area.


















Note from a neighbor - STAY OUT!:

If any of you have information as to who vandalized the Dartford Cemetery, there is a substantial reward being offered for information leading to an arrest.

Yes I do believe in these things. I haven't seen these things yet but I believe that these do exist. There is another world which is hidden from us but if we try we can contact with them. But it may prove fatal for us.

Just a note
by: DrPizza777

I realize that you are all interested in the fun thrill of old cemeteries, but you have to realize that demons and spirits do in fact exist. Most people do not realize this until they experience it themselves, usually having a strong reliance on God afterwards. It's best to stay safe, and to stay with God. He loves you, and will protect you from any danger. The slightest invitation is the devil's key into your heart. It is always good to stay safe and keep the lord guarding your heart. Guard your hearts. Love, Matthew.

Similar places in Colombia
by: Anonymous

I´m from Bogota, Colombia. In Colombia we saw that cemetery and we have some similar places in natural cemeteries of deaths by paramilitaries in the jungle.

The people say that the ghosts are looking for their killer and they appear in front of their killers. They become them in crazy ways. The spirits slip inside them, making them hit their heads against the trees. hahaha. It's funny the victim looking for their killers to madly kill them.

If you want to see really good things, go to Colombia for other life and experiences

Weather or not the Dartford story is true, & I'll admit I saw the shows episode, and it was entertaining. However, I'll remind you of God's warning in the bible: "Seek NOT the spirits..."!! If you dance with the Devil you will get burned! Let the dead rest in peace for heavens sake!

Leave the cemetery alone. It's not for laughing purposes. It's there for the dead to be at rest, not for people to venture im like it's a toy. I have seen it from New Zealand and people should take care of it.

I would like to see people in near future to stop making up stories and stop saying that all the myths are true but if they were I wouldn't blame them for seeing what people are doing to their resting place and I hope they do hurt you.

SHAME ON YOU!

Anything is Possible....
by: Photographer in WI

Seeing the show on TV sparked some interest in this cemetery, but I am still a bit of a skeptic.

I know that there are things in this world that are not explainable, yet being a photographer, I do know how easy it is to fool people by editing photos, or other means of "trick photography." It is possible for someone to blow smoke towards a camera or a deep breath (even from one person) can be magnified by the flash on the camera in the evening hours, especially at the time of year these pictures were taken in a Wisconsin evening.

You also have to think it is possible that the camera was picking up the breath of the people in the pics. It's winter and damn cold at night, doesn't take a genius to realize that people's breath is really going to stand out in seriously cold weather.

It has also been proven that when people are going into a situation so believing in something, or scared of something, they start to project see things because of their imagination getting the better of them.

I'm not saying that people aren't being truthful in their photos on these sites. They could have possibly actually caught something, could have truly believed it was, or just have been playing tricks to get their 15 secs of fame.

Anything is possible and can't rule anything out, especially when it comes to photography.

Get a life
by: Stay Away

You people are all pathetic. I live two blocks from this cemetery, it is just a nice old cemetery in a quiet neighborhood. Since the TV show featured the Dartford Cemetery, it has been seriously vandalized to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars for repairs. Some old (civil war era) stones have been permanently damaged. HOW CAN PEOPLE BE SO THOUGHTLESS??? This is SACRED ground, this is not a freak show for entertainment. HOW DARE YOU CLIMB THE MAUSOLEUM as if it is a piece of playground equipment, and then have the audacity to put your photos on the internet. If any of you have information as to who vandalized the Dartford Cemetery, there is a substantial reward being offered for information leading to an arrest. Please call Green Lake County Crimestoppers with any information. THE POLICE PATROL THIS CEMETERY FREQUENTLY,IT IS POSTED AND YOU WILL RECEIVE A FINE AND CITATION FOR BEING IN THE CEMETERY AFTER DARK. The neighbors are watching and will call the police if anyone is in the cemetery after dark. Motion sensor lights will be in place in the near future. Really, just find something else to do with your pathetic boring lives. Why don't you go and get a job? There are many things to bring meaning into your life but sneaking into a sacred resting place in hopes of seeing "something" aren't one of them.

by: Atif

Well I've also happen to seen A Haunting program "Legend Trippers".

I do believe in ghosts. Because in our Holy book it is described very clearly that Allah made this world for both Humans and Ghosts. Both are good and bad. I recommend that not to visit any graveyard at night. There are some rules and limitations set by nature and it's better to be remain in boundaries rather to reject them ! Because I believe that playing with fire will only harm yourself not the Fire ! Means that stay as far as possible from this stuff as we don't know how we are effected by these things or we don't know what these things can do to us ? Every work and action looks good in limits ! Not to exceed it !

Dudes!

This is an awesome photo; the colors I see in this mist makes me think the entity or entities were really trying hard to materialize; did your camera's battery drain a bit after this photo?? I was in another cemetery (my photo I took on this site is from Dartford Cemetery) and I was trying to take a photo of some headstones; it was a brand new camera; I was using it for the first time and wanted to try it out at this Civil War Cemetery here in Freedom, WI; any way; I pushed the button to turn on the camera and the camera would come on then turn off; I was getting frustrated; I finally said out load "Alright, enough is enough; stop messing with my camera; I just want to take a couple of pictures"!!!! Right after I said that the camera worked like a charm; I actually caught a spirit in the photo; he looks pretty solid, but I know he was not there when I took the photo; at least I did not see him with my eyes; but he showed up in the photo; I named him "Ghost Boy"! Ghost Boy followed me home and was messing with me again; turning our Cuckoo Clock from Germany on (We have never had it running because we thought our cat would play with the weights; so we hung it up high so as not to have the cat get at it) anyway it started to go "cuckoo, cuckoo"!! Ghost Boy would hide my car keys on me; I keep them in the same place every day (habit); just things like that! Thanks for sharing your photos:)

Like it but needs more
by: blossomskye1

I am a believer in the paranormal because I have been experiencing phenomenon since I was a little child. I cannot say that your pictures can prove that the so called smoke was from an entity because lens from the camera could have been dirty which may have caused the pictures to have a fog like effect. I am not saying that your experience didn't happen because I know that there are spirits among us, but it does take a lot to prove that validity of it because many things can debunk it. My grandmother recently moved to Wisconsin and lives in Green Lake. As a matter of fact, she lives a mile from the cemetery. I would love to visit her and the cemetery and gather my own investigation because of all the allegations arising.

by: Anonymous

I hate to say it but this isn't any real hard evidence of paranormal activity. Your pics can be easily explained. Anytime you go to a grave site, at least for your average person, you will feel the creeps and almost as if you are being watched. Our minds play tricks on us as it is. I am not a skeptic of the paranormal or disagree with people trying to prove we're not alone but I do like to "debunk" before writing off every piece of dust as an orb.
