Search for Secrets of A Sunken Cannon- 63

Believe it or not, we all live together on this planet earth. Only a select few work and play on the International Space Station orbiting the earth. Some people are more gifted, like dowsers and professionals while others are nuttier than last Christmas' fruitcake. Some lead exciting lives like Bob Alcumbrack, his cannon crew, but we don't know about you. Since we've never met, you could be nuttier than Ernest T. Bass on the Andy Griffith Show or a fringe element from Outer Limits, the Twilight Zone or a Star Trek fan.

How we use our talents decides whether we are destined for success or failure. Obstacles in life are thrust upon us whether we want it or not. Our lives and destinies can change instantly, but it is how we react to the change - for better or worse.

Understanding the use of angle or dowsing rods in discovering bluestones, greenstones and gold flecks in black sand deposits sure stretched our vision. When first encountered Bob couldn't distinguish between electromagnetically charged stones and brass objects. While he practiced his dowsing skills after his first big failure we embarked on a discovery journey to explore other possibility sites first with Thermal Mass Infrared Photography (TMIP) for two winters. However, the winter El Nino weather conditions from 1986-1988 spoiled our results to use this technology, because it required a 12-inch deep blanket of snow in the Cannonsburg area which melted too fast. TMIP is used from an altitude of 10,000 feet or greater when snow insulates the ground.

Concrete, metal and bronze objects buried in soil store a heat value signature that is easily seen with aerial infrared photography. This infrared imaging technology has advanced since the 1980's and today it is used to find mountain climbers and alpine skiers buried by avalanche snow before their bodies cool and is masked by the coldness of ice and snow.

Skiers today carry beacons or cell phones to summon help and rescuers can triangulate on the signals to find buried skiers, but cell phone users can't tell another phone user where they are buried. For phone to phone you need a signal locator and cell phones require a strong battery charge, because phone signals fade fast in cold weather. This TMIP technology is used by Fire, Search and Rescue teams to find drowning victims before body heat image is lost. That's the urgency requirement for emergency crews.

Although our first infrared photo ops failed to produce the cannon because of bad weather it did lead to better results towards understanding and using "Earth Energies and Infrared Imaging" when searching for the cannon using dark night photography sessions from tree and roof tops. The Cannonsburg area sparkles with hot magnetic stones -- granite, quartz, tungsten and iron ore remains. Geologists from GVSU were puzzled, but used their experiences were used to help us decipher the makeup of certain stones that held stronger or weak magnet signatures.

The geology investigations helped expose some secret mysteries of Cannonsburg. Bob felt our search for the cannon was evolving into scientific research and exploration fields he wasn't prepared to do, yet it kept us in suspense with each new discovery. It gave him time to focus his mind and when the cannonballs were found he had a timeline where he could begin to envision the right size cannon. In the meantime we kept testing Bob's abilities to solve problems. Flat out, Bob failed, but we didn't quit on him because he failed. We team players!

We had faith in Bob's abilities, but he needed our help to overcome his insecurities. Two years gave him and us time to hone his dowsing skills. We didn't quit digging holes and in fact in 1987 we started digging at site #2. Bob began to shine when he understood how to master the rods. His angle rods, mind and hands proved to his crew that "all of us have an energy field surrounding us."

Some have narrow or wide auras. The narrower the personal energy field, the more difficult it is to concentrate and use angle rods. Beware of those with wide encapsulating energy fields for they are most dangerous in lightning storms. If you hear distant thunder escape them for they are more likely to attract lightning. Healthy positive minded individuals have wide auras, too.

I hope you aren't superstitious? Some people normally get afraid when something points at them. They get antsy or feel anxious when they don't understand how dowsing works.

Dowsers like Bob could use his dowsing rods to measure the width of anyone's energy field. Bob's person was 3 feet in diameter, mine about 18 inches and Bob Markle's field is non-existent. Bob worked for Lear Seigler as a pipe fitter so he'd be dabbling with electromagnetic energy fields most of his life. He learned that all living and dead things that store water have energy fields, too, that we can't see, but with rod useage or instruments we can measure, see and feel the force.

When Bob with rods in hand walked towards another person, it would appear as if the pointed brass rods were going to skewer you, but suddenly like magic each rod senses your magnetic energy field and the rods swing outward around you. The rods are repulsed away from you body when it encounters the magnetic energy field. Dowsers find lost cemetery graves because bodies in old caskets haven't turned to dust and still hold a magnetic charge or they may concentrate on nails. Cremation ashes lose their energy fields when the ashes are dispersed to the wind, but not if buried near standing stones and together they energize. The electrical charge is transfixed from ashes to stones and the electromagnetic field remains strong.

Dead or decaying things buried in the ground sometimes because of magnetized (iron) water, will retain their electrical charges. As water evaporates the electromagnetic field grows weaker over time until it disappears. Decaying bodies in cemetery graves lose their electromagnetic energy fields over time (75-100 years), but one secret cemetery dowsers won't tell you is how they can detect whether graves are used or unused. They must ask secret questions to get the right answers. Cemetery sextons and dowsers disagree frequently when plots are being sold and dowsers can tell you correctly if the grave is occupied or unoccupied before digging commences. Some funeral directors who are puzzled will ask dowsers for help in deciding whether or not that vacant lot being sold is used. It might be a grave without marker.

The Mound Builders and Copper Culture Indians in Michigan cremated their dead. Past archaeological excavations of certain mounds show the only things buried within are personal aritfacts, religious jewelry and trade items. Mounds contain no bones from past civilizations, but if it does it usually is an (1600-1800 a.d.) Indian who favored being buried in a sitting position inside the mound. These Indians regarded mounds as spiritual places. They didn't know anything about the mounds or Mound and Copper Culture era, but felt it was a sacred place to be buried.

An Indian Princess' skeleton was found during road construction at 9 Mile Road and Wabasis Avenue in Grattan Township in 1910. Her wrists had copper bracelets and surrounding her head were ocean shells found only off the South Carolina shore. Her gravesite overlooked Muskrat Lake, the shining jewel.

When they layed the sewer lines on Monroe Ave. in Grand Rapids in the 1880's many diggers found ancient crucifixes and sterling silver jewelry, the Norton mounds on the other side of the Grand River. Early archaeologists believed the area was the village so the Indian's could see the rising sun on the mounds. If later Indians were buried within them they believed their departed spirits would see the rising sun. New World customs abound today where Christian tombstones face east. The belief is that your spirit will meet the second coming of Christ in the rising sun.

Many early Indians (5,000-8,000 b.c.) believed that cremation meant no stored energy fields for others to find graves. So too, without stored energy fields treasure hunters can't find Indian graves or cemeteries and rob graves of their cherished possession. Then again the practice of cremation is still here today. Ashes in a container still hold magnetic charges. Cremation made it difficult to find ancient cemeteries, depressions and mounds, however cremation sites exist in Grattan and Oakfield Townships of Kent County, Michigan, but I refuse to divulge this secret.

Archaeologist believe that the ancient medicine men from 10,000 B.C. to around 2500 B.C. used assorted dowsing rods to sense or witch the pulsating energy (straight track ley lines), the same Bob Alcumbrack discovered, across the earth and built their monument sites where the strongest energy sites occurred. At these ceremonial sites they built ancient, but large magnetic bluestone and greenstone crosses underground that if found could point modern man towards their ancient cemeteries and ceremonial sites.

The ancients kenw how to use the power of bluestones and greenstones and geophysical properties for the benefit of the tribes. This is why medicine men and witch doctors were so revered by the tribal leaders. They had harnessed the metal and mental powers of reasoning. Bob and crew found some bluestone crosses and ancient sites with the use of infrared photography. Yes, we found them, but we kept our eyes out for a lost cannon. Finding the bluestone and greenstone underground crosses was not without problems. We felt a strong sense of uneasiness as if someone, a ghost or spirits watching.

The feelings were similar to pulling a shirt or blouse over your head in warm, dry winter air feeling the static electricity lift hair and fight each other. The cold air caused us to shiver and it was a very unsettling feeling that Bob Alcumbrack didn't like. It was sort of like Bob's complexion turned white when Don Kurlyowitz asked Bob had he ever entertained the thought the cannon was recycled at the blacksmith shop. Tell Don hi at Honey Creek Inn or Cannonsburg Deli. Visit the museum on Sunday's.

Any ghost hunter knows that when searching for apparitions or ghost anomalies that when a ghost is near you'll get a chill feeling, a cold breath on back of neck. Medical personnel say that ghosts inhabit the halls leading to the morgue at Butterworth's Spectrum Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Its the cold spots in warm halls that seize your neck and keeps you hostage to your own fertile imaginations whether ghosts really exist.

Well its time to quit for this weekend blog. Next time I'll discuss the supernatural disturbances Bob Alcumbrack, the crew and I experienced.
