ROSEBOOM – A woman who died in childbirth. Six children, from just hours old to 19. A male cat.
These are some of the 187 bodies Susan Miller, a Cherry Valley ghost hunter, told the Roseboom Historical Association that she found while dowsing the burial site behind the Roseboom Church.
“I grew up seeing ghosts,” said Miller, who has been dowsing since 1971.
Approximately 187 bodies are buried in the plot behind the Roseboom Church according to Susan Miller, a regional author and ghost hunter from Cherry Valley. In her presentation at the church on Thursday evening, Miller discussed the process of dowsing and how she managed to map the burial site.
