These stories are all from the turn of the century. 1890-1910.
A story in one of our local cemeteries is that a young woman was found dead on her young child new grave.
Another is a prominent citizen took his own life at his wifes grave. The shot was heard by all that were in the cemetery. He was found draped over the large monument bearing her name.
Constant spring showers caused a massive mud slide in the cemetery and 35 coffins slid down the hillside. Over a hundred graves were moved later in the summer.

Leslie thinks that we do have some ignorant spooks and they don't know that they can move about, so a haunt in a cemetery is just the last place that ppl left them. I'm not sure why the other spooks there don't fill them in, so maybe its an inside joke.

as for why they are believevd to be haunted,well,for one name a place with more dead bodies buried beneath it.that certainly comes into play.but i think its also a comfort thing.people like to believe their loved ones are there.and not just their bodies.they like to believe there is a place to go where they can be with and talk to the loved ones they have lost.i dont knoe if this is true,but without proof i refuse to walk on this belief personally.it doesnt hurt anyone if people think this for this reason.

True, common sense is one of the best tools we can apply here. So apply a little bit and rationalize the situation. Before claiming a cemetery is full of ghosts, first we must determine what exactly is a ghost so we recognize one if it should appear.That is where the science comes in.

In fact, I only know of one person who has ever had a paranormal experience in a cemetery. My best friend's fiancée saw a girl in the cemetery he had to cross through on his way home from school. He asked his mother, "Why is that little girl all by herself?". She couldn't see the girl, so she asked him to show her where the girl was. He ran over toward where the girl had been and said, "She's gone!". The gravestone he was near was that of a little girl.
I think, in my personal opinion, that if a spirit is haunting the place they or a loved one was laid to rest it's likely a confusion. Perhaps there's no real disconnection from their physical body. Or, in the case of being near the grave of a loved one, they are seeking to be reunited.
Or they might be like me and simply enjoy looking at the graves and trying to figure out what the person's life might have been like. You can truly learn a lot about a person's life from their gravestone.

I don't know that they are. I think in cases where the caskets are dug up and relocated so that homes can be built there, or homes built right on top of graveyards (like "Poltergeist"), there can be the risk of hauntings taking place. Or any piece of land where many people were killed (such as the twin towers in NYC), but in that example, it is probably best that no structure be built. But that's JMHO
