For those interested in the history of Elkton Town Hall/The Jenning's House, here is my summary regarding historic info we obtained during our last private paranormal investigation in Feb. 2023. I will include the link with our investigation videos as well!
Summary Jenning's Investigation.
Cherie Breeden
Our historical findings during our 2022 and 2023 private investigations.
Cherie Breeden and Dr. Donald Molnar.

Rumors have always circulated regarding a ghost named Cecil, as mentioned in on my previous post. During this investigation Cecil’s responds twice that he is 13 years old. He also mentioned that he was a servant. We haven’t verified yet if he was a servant during the Civil War when the Jennings live there, or not. So far he seems very friendly and active! When we asked what spirit was present during our session with him we received the response, a “ghost” ! Apparently Cecil had a sense of humor! He also was trying to divulge the secret about some sort of conspiracy that happened back in the late 1800s. His adamancy was quite clear when we heard his voice and his repetitive responses. He genuinely enjoys interacting with us and has expressed this.

The spirit of Dr Jennings is extremely prominent in Elkton Town Hall! Particularly in the upstairs corner conference room. He also tends to be in the right corner of the room as well. Along with the right corner seat at the end of the conference table. (But not at the head of the table.) He expresses a lot of interest in my ghost hunting partner Dr. Don Molnar/ the Haunted MD. Certain responses throughout our investigation make me suspect that he is literally asking Don for help with wounded Civil War Soldiers. Many times he manipulates our equipment and is extremely intelligent with his responses. Dr Simon Jennings states his full name when we ask which spirit we are communicating with. During our first private investigation we experienced quite a bit of unexplained noises and voices out of thin air during our initial communication with Dr. Jennings. Dr Jennings touched Dr. Molnar more than once when we were in the conference room. We get the impression he is excited to be recognized as an existing ghost of his house. He has also provided some information regarding one of his 6 daughters Malinda who passed away at age 12. When we inquired about how many children he and his wife had, he responded, “8”. We confirmed with town historian Casey Billhimer that they had 6 girls. Casey obtained the family bible which has written record of all of the family members, slaves, and other life events. We consider the fact that it wasn’t uncommon for women to lose children during or before childbirth back then. It’s possible that his wife did have 8 children, just not surviving.

I did pick up the name, Virginia, two or three times during our investigation. Which is the name of one of Jennings 6 daughters. The circuit breaker bedroom that is to the right of the conference room, is claimed by the spirit of a young girl. I didn’t get the feeling it was Malinda and it made me curious if it is Virginia. A good question for next time!

Malinda is their daughter who passed as an adolescent. It appears, being only 12 years old when she passed away, plays a roll regarding her energy level. We were floored by her responses during our first private investigation and not surprisingly during our second! Her initial introduction to us was the classic “boo” response! An amazing capture in the paranormal field.

Historically locals are unaware of the circumstances surrounding Malinda’s premature death at the young age of 12. Part of our mission is to reveal this information. Amazingly we did hear from and her father, Dr. Simon Jennings, regarding her cause of death too. During our video capture she clearly states that she did pass away from a fever. Her young girl voice is very distinct.

We applied some cross-referencing techniques with the spirits and apparently no one knows what caused her fever. Some of the spirits from the Jennings house, including Simon and Malinda, travel back and forth from the Miller-Kite Museum and their house. Not considered impossible due to the historical fact that the families were tied together in the past through marriage. They would frequent each other’s houses on a weekly basis including Malinda going over to the Kite House. I asked the same questions regarding Malinda’s death again when I was at the Museum recently. I received the same answers.

Some of the most profound responses and evidence we received were outside at the historic burr oak tree! There’s a continuous strong presence of Civil War Soldiers around the tree still waiting for the doctor and his staff. Often times they reach out to Don and I for medical help. They have specifically mention details regarding injuries to us Expressively asking Don for his assistance on several occasions. Some of the spirits conceive they are not alive. We’ve had several intelligent discussions with many of them regarding what time period we are in now, and the fact that they did not make it through the war. But several others seem to be stuck in the perpetual cycle of their last moments of life/death. Even to the point of reaching out to us asking if we wanted to serve in the war.

There’s an immense amount of energy and interaction with our equipment around this tree every time we communicate. Spirits truly enjoy our acknowledgment of their existence and circumstances. This is one location that is definitely more active at night, but still equally as interesting to investigate in the daytime. Downstairs, including the parlor and the entryway, harbors a lot of voices and noises out of thin air. We also experienced quite a bit of the same in the upstairs conference room.

There’s so much more to learn! The amount of activity inside of Elkton Town Hall and surrounding the Burr oak tree is amazing and astonishing! We feel extremely honored for the opportunity to be able to engage with the spirits and learn more about the history surrounding this beautiful historic landmark!

"I myself see in this war, if the North triumph, a dissolution of the bonds of all society. It is not alone the destruction of our property (which both the nation and the States are bound to protect), but it is the prelude to anarchy, infidelity, and the ultimate loss of free responsible government on this continent.

“With these convictions, I always thought we ought to meet the Federal invaders on the outer verge of just, right and defense, and raise at once the black flag, viz., ‘No quarter to the violators of our homes and firesides!’ It would in the end have proved true humanity and mercy. The Bible is full of such wars, and it is the only policy that would bring the North to its senses.

'I see now clearly enough the people of the South were not prepared for such a policy. I have myself cordially accepted the policy of our leaders. They are great and good men. Possibly, too, as things then stood, no other policy was left open to us than the one pursued by President Davis and General Lee. But all this is now suddenly changed by the cruel and utterly barbarous orders of General Pope, who is not only subsisting his army on the people of Culpepper, and levying contributions upon them, but has laid whole communities under the pains and penalties of death or banishment; and in certain cases directed that houses shall be razed to the ground, and citizens shot without waiting civil process.’" LIFE AND LETTERS OF STONEWALL JACKSON, by Mary Anna Jackson, 1892.

It is man’s highest interest not to violate, or attempt to violate, the rules which Infinite Wisdom has laid down. The means by which men are to attain great elevation may be classed in three divisions — physical, mental, and moral. Whatever relates to health, belongs to the first; whatever relates to the improvement of the mind, belongs to the second. The formation of good manners and virtuous habits constitutes the third.

“Every brave people who considered their rights attacked and their constitutional liberties invaded, would have done as we did. Our conduct was not caused by any insurrectional spirit, nor can it be termed a rebellion; for our construction of the Constitution under which we lived and acted was the same from its adoption, and for eighty years we had been taught and educated by the founders of the Republic, and their written declarations, which controlled our consciences and actions. The epithets that have been heaped upon us of ‘rebels’ and ‘traitors’ have no just meaning, nor are they believed in by those who understand the subject, even at the North…”
