Jersey Devil: Possible Parents and Siblings

DEBORAH SMITH LEEDS


The facts: Deborah Smith was born in 1685 in Burlington County, New Jersey and died as Deborah Leeds in 1748 in Atlantic County New Jersey. She was a Quaker and married Japheth Leeds giving birth to 12 of his children. Deborah was (possibly) the daughter of Daniel Smith and Mary Murfin. There is much speculation and much of the details may have been lost to time. In those times it was an old practice to name the first son after the parents, which in her situation was not true. Deborah named her first son Robert, and her sixth son, Daniel, bore the name of her father. Japheth's father was also named Daniel. Her first child Mary was born 1704, and her last known child by Japheth, Hannah, was born 1726.

The Case of the Mysterious Shaking Door Knob: Burlington Country Club

The Case of the Mysterious Shaking Door Knob

"BURLINGTON COUNTY COUNTRY CLUB:
Burlington County, New Jersey
by Chris Chaos

***NOTE***: The partial article concerning the Country club itself is located at the bottom of this article and the top section deals strictly with the shaking knob.

The door knob in question

A few years back we investigated a country club that people thought was haunted. There are several spots and locations within the building and property that gave you a "weird feeling" but after the investigation we only came across two anomalies that could not be explained. The first was the door leading from the men's locker room into the boardroom vibrated and shook for no logical reason. It was late at night (after midnight) and no one other than our team members were present. The location is private and distant from any major roads and traffic. We timed the AC unit to make sure it was not vibrating the building and causing the knob to shake. This is one of the few and very rare occurrences that we came across that was not readily explainable.

The Bar area

The second anomaly was in one of the photos taken in the bar area appeared that a being was peering into the window from the outside. Humorously it curiously resembled Bigfoot, but once we analyze the photo in greater detail we will release it.

May 4th, 2012 the investigation was conducted. This is a building with a rich history and was built in 1929. Prior to it being a golf country club it was an old farm house. Throughout the years the owners added on to the original building and made it approx. four times as large. We can only speculate how many old timers must have had heart attacks on the golf course and keeled over. There are several spots on the property that you always "get that feeling" when you are there. The first location is on the second floor in the entrance way to the men's locker room. For some odd reason when you go through the door it always feels like someone or something is right behind you. The hairs on the back of your neck and arm stand on end and you feel a presence. In the same section there is a door that leads to the boardroom and on an occasion we filmed the door knob rattling for no reason (See above for the results).




More of the bar area


The second location that many people feel something odd is the hallway leading back from the ladies locker room and the administrative offices. It feels as if there is an unknown watcher creeping around the corner, the hairs on your neck stand up and the atmosphere makes you feel uneasy. When the normal lights are turned off the safety lights come on and they are tinted red and give an ominous glow to the surroundings.

The other creepy location leading to the admin offices and woman's locker area

We did a session and took many photos but all appeared normal except for one photo. It was in the dining room looking towards the windows, it looked as if a Bigfoot creature was peering into the window. With the naked eye you couldn't see anything and the photos from other angles didn't show anything out of the ordinary.

Other notable info concerning this property is that there are also approximately 20 feral cats that roam around on the property and deer also strut across the course being so near to the forests.

The Unknown "Hand Print" on the Back of the Car Incident (Martha's Furnace)

by Chris Chaos

Back on February 10th, 2010 we ventured off to find Martha's Furnace in Chatsworth, New Jersey. It was late at night and very dark, we did not have a jeep but we did have a car that was ill equipped for the terrain that we were to venture down.

The mysterious handprint on the trunk

Across the street from the Historic Harrisville Ghost Town Ruins,we started down Martha Road, the road is simply a dirt road but eventually graduates to a loose sand and grass path that should be traversed either by foot or by Jeep.

"The Mysterious C Hole Found" Girardville, PA 11-27-16

by Chris Chaos

The elusive "C Hole"

Many in the Girardville, PA (known for its rapidly growing annual St. Patrick's Day Parade) area are very familiar with the swimming hole known affectionately as the "A Hole", others may even know the "B Hole", but the legendary "C Hole" (Which is not even mentioned within Google Maps) has been located and documented by us in late 2016. (more info concerning the various locations will be added to this article one it is finalized)

The coal monument

These holes are old abandoned mining locations and specifically, the A Hole collapsed in on itself. On the east end of the banks all the debris that was either thrown or blown into the body of water accumulates. Much of the old mining equipment is also located in the bottom of these bodies of water.
