Ghost Sighting in John Russell State Park Miss.
Donald R. Williams, CA, USA
My brother and I were traveling from Tampa Bay, FL. en route to Wisconsin. We had a 5th wheel trailer we were towing and we stopped to spend a few days at John Russell State Park just south of Hattiesburg, MS.
We had made this trip several times and it was our custom to stop there, either going or coming.
On the night of July 13, 1996, a Sunday night, we had gone to bed for the night. For some reason I awoke at about 12:30 AM and felt wide awake. I got out of bed and went to the kitchen area opened the refrigerator and poured myself a glass of milk. I was standing there looking out the kitchen window and I saw this smiling figure walking through our campsite, which is a no-no among campers. The figure passed under our awning and the outside light was on but the figure looked more like a reflection in the window because I could see through him. I turned around to look to see if my brother had gotten out of bed and was walking behind me but he was still in bed asleep.
It was a still night with no breeze. I walked to the back of our trailer and looked out the window and there was no one there. There was nothing behind the trailer except some bushes and trees. Not a branch was moving.
We completed out trip to Wisconsin and returned to Florida in Sept. At that time I found that a very close friend of ours had become ill and went into the hospital on July 4 and had passed away on July 13.
