Half a century before the Fox Sisters showed up on the scene to propel mainstream spiritualism onto the populace of America, there was a much lesser known haunting taking place in the cellar of a small frontier settlement, named Sullivan in Maine. Though it was extensively documented at the time, the many eye-witness testimonies fell to the back pages of history. Despite its relatively unknown status, it remains as one of, if not the very first documented cases of a haunting in North America and is a story that culminates in an event that was utterly bizarre.
Immortality proved by the testimony of sense… – The original source of the documentation for the Nelly Burtler hauntings written by Abraham Cummings, the travelling evangelist,
Amazon – Nelly Butler: A documentary History – Reprint of the original source documents, along with footnotes detailing culturally sigfnificant or social notes, along with footnotes written by the original author.
