This little girl does not belong in this photo . If it is a girl. Many in our family say it is. My father said . that will never be explained. he said his brother . your oldest uncle and aunt had no child but the two girls and a boy when the photo was taken .They went on and had 11 more children after this photo was taken. Hair is hanging down over his daughters face. please explain that anyone. This is not a snapshot . A professional photographer went out to the farm to take this photo at my great grandfathers farm . He built the church that his friends and neighbors went to. I use to think this was at the church and graveyard. But my Dad cleared that up years ago. My Dad told us all who each and everyone in the photo was almost. The man in close up is the first born. My father is the last born. Nine kids in all. When he got to this girl he said we never knew her. No one in family knew her.
He would laugh about it .. when he was asked. Mom said you don't know for sure.. quit telling these kids that. About 20 years ago My brother had 11 copies made for all of us. I had completely forgot about the weird thing in the photo. I got it out as the man in photo up close is the grandpa to a cousin who played in rawhide series on tv. Their was a dispute over who James Murdock was? I had to correct them So I got out these photos. He did not have a father so they changed his name for acting. A lot of people called him David. Even our newspaper printed David. So I put a photo of Jim on FB book way back in tenth grade from his high school group photo.. which showed him to be Jim Baker. I also put his grandfather in this photo on to show how he was a clone from his grandpa. Then they ask me who is the ghost in the photo. Boy I thought I cannot explain it but Louise spotted it right off. I ask sky to put it here to see your input on it. That is not the mans leg in pants hanging down to bleachers below over my cousins face. his hat is on his thigh and knee where is the bottom of his leg? . The girl is the only thing I can see not a pants leg. How could his pant leg have hair hanging off of it. ?? The two girls is Clara and Gladys the baby was born in January 1898. his name is Benjamin. This is in June or July. The girls I remember well as middle aged ladies. Why is that mans hat look so large to me. Is it just me?
sky that first photo is really small, can hardly make people out, but the people in question is in the first row down from top.. just to the right of canter. sky see the woman in full photo above them to the right. Her hair pulled up on her head. It could never be her hair.. It would be six feet long. women in those days never let down their hair. Also no little girl in the photo has hair stringing down. Some of the children's hair is braided.
Here's an arrow pointing at the suspected ghost in case you still can't see her.
You say everything is an optical illusion. How could it be an optical illusion? You can see her mouth and eyes and hair and chin and everything. How can a dress have a mouth and eyes and chin and hair and everything? That's a ghost if I ever saw one.
Shami wanted me to post these photos here. This is one of her family photos that I believe was taken back in 1898. She says that there appears to be a ghost girl in it. What do y'all think?
I see some more ghosts in that picture too. It looks like there's one in the far upper left corner. There's a girl there that looks almost invisible. And down on the bottom left there is a weird round thing that looks like a mans face with a mustache. I guess it might be somebodys hat. I had to get out my magnifying glass to look at it cuz those people look like tiny little ants.
I have to admit the "ghost girl" does look a little strange to be part of the woman's dress. The facial features are a little too precise to just be a coincidence and I don't see any reason that those horizontal features should be on a dress. I have seen weirder photos before though. That one of the "ghost man" sitting in the jungle is one, as is that face in the water at Pearl Harbor. Those were both amazing to look at, whether they were optical illusions or not.
As for the two things you pointed out in the photo I think I see what you are talking about. I put arrows next to them.
The red arrow is pointing towards the "invisible girl" and the blue one is pointing towards the "hat with a mustache." And yes, it probably is a hat and it does look like it has a face with a mustache on it. At least it does when viewed at this size. My puter won't enlarge anything right now for some reason so I can't take a closer look unless Shami sends me a photo of it.
I have never understood why those people are like that in this photo. It is like the sun is beaming through their bodies but why? I will look at my giant copy of this I have in a 16 by 11 frame.. See what I can see. I will try and zoom it in. I already put the large one in my computer then cropped the people out sitting in top row. If I can make this computer I do not understand to undo the crop I can then crop it on the upper left corner.
Could liquid of gotten on the original years ago and washed it out some how?
What horizontal figures are speaking of ? I only see two eyes and brows horizontal in it. The perfect neck line on side of her neck coming down on left is so perfect like a real neckline. I thought forget the face . i have seen better face in wall paper. but this that little neck was so precise in size to what looks like the head. it is where the dress ends and the odd part begins. I live about 15 miles or so from the Baker cemetery lies. When warm weather comes , I'm going through that graveyard again and check every stone for a young girl. There are a lot of babies that passed, I can not think of one around the age that this girl looks. . It may give me something . It is not likely but it may. So many others had passed before this photo was taken . Ones that should of been teenagers . ones that should of been in their 20's and 30s. Medical science has changed that today. .
One Correction here. I don't know why I keep saying 98, it was taken in the early summer or late spring of 1899. The litte boy is not BEN but Robert .. He was born in January of 99 seen on his Mothers lap here. Also Great Grandpa died in July . He is in the photo.

The horizontal features I'm talking about are the eyes, the mouth and the bottom of the chin. Everything is in perfect proportion. Even the shape of the neck and face. If it is an optical illusion it's a pretty good coincidence.
You always say ghosts are optical illusions. You're almost as bad as them ufo skeptics with their weather balloons. I still say its a ghost!
All I know is this is not a child of anyone in the photo. My Dad told me that. If a child. People noticed it right off when photo was developed. Someone should of show it to the photographer who took it. They just dismissed it. I never get that photo out.
spotless38: Iam back after a long break . What a couple of years I had . After what had happened I lost my brother and had to bury him and then I had caught that type A flue and I was a very sick puppy I also needed blood for the loss of it .
