We were in the family farmhouse, at night, in the 1960's and there were no closeby neighbors
except for one house of relatives. Four of us were in the living room, and it opened to
a hall which had a door to the outside, and a door to a bedroom and a pair of French doors
connected to the rest of the house. All the doors were shut except for the door from the living
room to the hall. All doors to the outside were locked shut.
All of a sudden there were two sounds, that seemed to be of metal hitting on metal. The sounds
came from the hall and it was loud and easily heard. My mother heard it while walking and she
was alarmed and ran from the sound. My Dad and Grandmother got up and went into the hall
to investigate. I stayed on the couch. We all heard it and we all knew that nothing tiny made
those sounds. We weren't sure but thought that the sound came from someone trying to open
the door knobs on the french doors. There was nothing there, so a thorough search of the rest of the
house was made, with a gun handy, but there was not anything out of place or any reason for the
sound found. We looked out the front door and the dog was asleep on the door mat and we knew
nothing had come that way. We never found any cause, but an aunt later told us that she
believed the french doors had been involved in spooky happenings in the past.
Who knows? Something made a noise that made me remember it some half a century later!
