Location: Rochester, New York
Date of Encounter: July 4, 2000
I was sitting at the head of my bed watching TV and crocheting like I usually do every night with the light off and I had to use the bathroom really bad, so I went. When I came back, there was an elderly woman dressed in a long dress. I couldn't really make out what color it was, it was so transparent. The ghostly woman's hair was pinned back in one of those hair styles from back in the 1800s. She was holding something in her hand but I couldn't make it out. She tried to show me again and again, but I still couldn't make it out. My dog came running in and started barking, but the elderly woman didn't move a muscle. She just stood there looking at me like she knew me from somewhere. I didn't know her at all. She tried speaking to me and all I could make out was a name, "Anna." I didn't understand so I did genealogy research and my great great great grandmother's name was Anna. I was freaked. The hair on the back of my neck stood on end that night. I couldn't sleep after that.
