The blog is dedicated to housing some of our fantastic Tombstone Tales from our visits to cemeteries across the country and all things funerary we find fascinating!!


We recently acquired  (12-2018)  an ITC  "GHOST BOX" from England's very own Mark Coultous. The video to the right is a short clip of our second use of the device, where you can " clearly" hear Mark's last name spoken. During the first two uses of this box, we received many direct, pertinent replies to our questions & comments. WE BELIEVE. The box is of sturdy construction and hardware. It fits well in your hand when mobile, stands sturdily on its own on a flat surface and we highly recommend it for investigations and all general ITC use. Hit the link below to see details of and purchase a COULTOUS GHOST BOX.

If you purchase though this link a small sales percentage, of no extra cost to  you, will go to our website host fee.

Haunted Joliet Prison is the first book by Wendy Moxley Roe of The Path to Bachelors Grove .  Wendy and Karl first visited the prison in May of 2014. Over the past six years Wendy has researched the prison's history and legendary stories which she  turned into a book during the fall and winter of 2019/20. The book features first hand experiences from inmates,  ghostly sightings at the prison, famous inmates, and a singing ghost!

Come with us down the path we so often speak of in soft excited voices. Fleeting shapes caught out of the corner of  an eye,  shadowy figures in the trees.  There is so much more beyond Bachelors Grove. 

The Path to Bachelors Grove  

Evolved as a result of a personal passionate interest in Bachelors Grove Cemetery. Our goal has always been to collect in one place as much information/documentation of Bachelors Grove Cemetery as we can. The research we have conducted to locate the information we have collected has lead us to see just how much incorrect information is out there about the Grove. Over time we have developed a keen desire to put straight the misinformation and to distinguish fact from urban legend in an effort to stop bad information from circulating. 

This website is a continuing work in progress. We update and add to it constantly . It has and will continue to be built around personal experiences. stories of our own, of friends and of visitors to Bachelors Grove.

We have met many people with the same interest and passion for this location. Some of these people have become great friends that are among the best people we have ever met. 

There is always something new and interesting happening at Bachelors Grove. Keep checking back with us to see what is going on at the Grove with updates, current photo's, BG personal experiences, historical stories/photos and anything interesting happening in or around Bachelors Grove!

Bachelors Grove is a special place very dear to both of us. We lovingly share all of our knowledge with anyone we can in an effort to honor the dead within the cemetery and to try to preserve and pass on the legend that is Bachelors Grove.​

Thank you again for visiting our site, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
