Yay! I live near Hydesville! It's part of Newark/Arcadia now. I did a paper once on the Fox Sisters. Spooky stuff, I think the original occurence was genuine, but afterwards was just invented. Until lately you could see what remained of their house/basement, but I think they recently built over it :-/

I've been reading up on them a lot lately, really interesting stories surrounding their lives (like the greeley expedition, for instance). Know any good resources?

Well, if you come out to Newark, at our library in our local history section is a whole damn BOOK about them. You could probably find other stuff in the library or the town museum. If you hunt around google you could probably get in touch with our town historian (it's not Bob Hoetzel anymore). If you're that interested, that is. :) oooor I can tell you that the basement is located at the corner of Parker and Hydesville Rd., and you can just have fun out there ;)

Do you know if there have been any modern attempts to excavate the basement? The man allegedly buried ten feet beneath was a cornerstone of the early rappings. At the time when they attempted to dig where the man was said to be buried (as indicated by the rapping), I remember that after only a few feet down ground water flooded their pit and halted any progress.

If no modern attempts have been made, and since there is no structure left to destroy, a dig would be incredible.

can you imagine a dig? eeeee. somebody should contact like the discorey channel or life or whatever kinds of channels care about creepy shit and history and tell them to sponsor a dig. I nominate you :)

While looking for the name of our town historian I cam across a website all about the cemeteries of Wayne county. Just thought I'd mention teh cool! :P
