The church is still actively being used. The cemetery has no more room in it for new burials, but is well maintained.

2 hours and 3 minutes
51 degree Fahrenheit
The base reading was .02 milligauss
Fluctuations were between .02 to .04 milligauss
The cemetery was extremely quiet upon my arrival. However, this quickly changed when several birds started to fly from tree to tree and chirp extensively. There was a very peaceful feeling on this night. Nothing out of the ordinary was detected. The cemetery is well light around the church area, as well as the walk ways.
Review of data:
141 digital photos were taken. After reviewing the photos, it was clear that there was no paranormal evidence in any of them.
Audio was recorded during the entire investigation, regardless if questions were being asked.
One EVP was recorded at 10:57pm. I came to a grave site in the cemetery where a vase of flowers had been dumped over. I say, “There’s some flowers that dumped out of the vase.” I can be heard fixing the flowers. A male spirit then says, ”A brown girl named Nickie did this.”

No fluctuations in temperature was detected.
No abnormal fluctuations were reported. The .02 milligauss to .04 milligauss readings were within the normal range that one might expect to find.
The evidence gathered from the previous investigation, as well as this investigation makes it clear that this cemetery is actively haunted. There are intelligent spirits that are aware of their surrounding. The evidence shows that the reports of the location being haunted should be considered to be true. The activity at this location will mostly likely continue for some time to come.
