History: The home in Asbury, Iowa sits on a farmstead once owned by William Kingsley and later, his son, William Kingsley Jr. William Kingsley Sr. was a lifelong Dubuque township resident. William Kingsley was born 1820, died 1900. Called “One of Dubuque County’s oldest/most respected citizens” in obituary. Came from Ireland. Had four kids.
William had two daughters die a month apart in 1872, Jane, 10 years old, in September and Margaret, 15, in October. William Jr. was born in 1858 and took over property when William Sr. died, also on the land. William Jr. died in 1923 at age 62. He would have been 14 when his sisters died.
Claims: Disembodied voices, knocking, screaming and crying, shadow figures and mists, both black with red eyes and white mists, shadow man in doorway of master bedroom that dog growls and reacts to, child spirits running downstairs, disappearing into a wall, phantom dog barking, poltergeist activity, slamming doors, being touched, spirits outside staring at house,
In the basement hallway, just before Jim says "Jim bouncing the ball," we catch what sounds like a child’s voice.
On the basement static recorder, the recorder picks up a high-pitched "Hello." No one was on the floor at the time.
On the first-floor static recorder, just before Jim starts talking, we pick up a voice saying "What."
Near the end of the night, the team conducts an Estes Method session. Alisha and Sandy are in a child's bedroom. Jim is in the master bedroom. Alisha asks if the spirit will stop scaring the kids. Jim responds with “Look, outward, in there.” Alisha and Sandy both had a strong sense that the male spirit, William Kingsley Jr., was in the hallway and wanting them to come out and see him. Five minutes after this exchange, Jim says, randomly “Look…at….me.” The responses are compressed here.
A couple minutes later, Alisha asks “Are you a man?” Five seconds later, Jim says “Man.”
Jim tells Sandy and Alisha that he hears a woman crying on the spirit box. Alisha asks if it’s Mrs. Kingsley crying and receives no response. Sandy then asks “Who’s crying?” and Jim responds “For me.” We believe this is William Jr. saying the woman was crying for him over his death.
We are getting ready to go into the garage for a session and we catch a male whispering close to the first-floor static recorder. We can’t make out what is being said, but believe this is William Jr.
While we are all in the master bedroom conducting a normal Q&A session, we catch a male disembodied voice saying “Get off there.” We believe this is also William Jr.
