Search for Secrets of A Sunken Cannon -104

Stonehenge and the lost Cannonsburg cannon have something in common? Both have magnetic fields that exist in cemeteries and the Cannonsburg cemetery is part of the mystery concerning the missing cannon. Stonehenge to leading scientists is reputed to be an ancient cemetery and not an astronomical place where Stone Age Britions encountered extraterrestrials. Human ashes exist near the standing stones with base bluestones and together they impart a magnetic charge to the standing stones - Stonehenge. The wetness in soil is the electrical connection charge to the stone, but when ashes are cast to the winds the energy field is lost, too. So too, when we return to dust in a casket it is the wetness of the dust that holds an electrical. As long as the ashes are confined the fields of energy won't disappear. Dry dust holds no electrical charge. Wetness is the connection point.

Earlier I talked about lightning, but did you know many people are electrocuted during and after a thunderstorm, hurricane or tornado visit, because they stepped in gutter stormwater. That's right. Someplace a downed electrical line carries that current along the curb to a storm basin. Step into the stormwater and "ZAP" you are dead not by lightning, but by live downed electrical lines or lightning bolt. High voltage electricity is an unseen silent killer. Back to my story.

When I tossed out my cemetery findings out to Bob. He was squeamish about where he might have to go, but after two drastic failures and probably a third dig, he had to investigate Cannon Township's three cemeteries. He had fought the urge to investigate the cemetery for nearly 50 years. He never thought he'd have to go to such lengths to find the Cannonsburg cannon. He felt in his heart and mind that before he dowsed he should explain to the cemetery spirits why it was so important to check out my findings and settle his mind, because a distracted mind is a terrible thing to waste. His wildest dream was being challenged.

Bob needed closure on his wildest dream. It was time to explore the idea that the cannon might truly be buried in one of the cemeteries and yes, we watched Bob's rods move mysteriously above the ground when we told him what to find and he found...our purposely planted coin. We had to test his mind's ability to focus on a coin. No sense looking for a cannon if he couldn't dowse a coin. Being team members we had to check out Bob's brain, his mental state and physical energy level and his overall health when using dowsing rods. Body, mind and spirit must be in good condition. Concentration and focus were the prerequisites that all dowsers must perform when trying to find cannons or treasure. Lots of digging at two previous failure sites made us skittish of Bob's ability to dowse accurately.

Caskets with bodies, lost gravesites and magnetic tombstones he had to forget. These would be his downfall. He had to erase them from his mind and concentrate on only a 16th century falconet cannon. All dowsers must shield their mind and body from things that could influence and corrupt thinking processes. The ability to dowse treasures or cannons is much more difficult than dowsing water, water wells, underground pipes, containment tanks, utilities or gravesites. Bob literally had to visualize a 2-pound falconet cannon in his mind that was 44-72 inches in length with Danish or Austrian features these being reinforcement rings. He had to refrain from caskets containing the dearly departed. Now that's a feat in a cemetery because of all the tombstones, markers, plaques and flower pots.

On a hazy, breezeless, warm July morning (July 9, 1988) Bob Alcumbrack, Allen Janose, Harold and Matt McCarthy, Chuck or Charlie Alcumbrack and I witnessed Bob begin his cemetery survey hoping to find if the Cannonsburg cannon was buried here. Bob moved around, but got no readings except for catching the ley lines that ran thru the cemetery. Other than these no other magnetic fields were found until he started adding directional triangulation anchor rods to the north, south and east driveways. He marked three anchor rods; two sending and one receiving electrical energy and we watched Bob's rods cross in hins hands where "X" marked the fourth spot from the three different anchors spots. The anchor spots are the triangulation points that narrow the triangle, which from any counterclockwise circumference of the circle plus the object you see in your mind's eye made one rod point to the direction of the object he desired.

It had taken Bob many years of practice to understand how the rods are used to find buried objects. Anchor rods have been used by ley line hunters since the late 1920's. It isn't just a matter of seeing it in the mind's eyes, but course comps were needed since the anchors were used as antennas for sending and receiving signals from buried objects that held a strong magnetic energy field.

Before Bob started his search with dowsing rods. We blindfolded him so he couldn't see any cemetery features. Bob stood absolutely still like a statue in a park and we waited patiently and watched one rod point towards the location. As we walked him a around the circle we charted his rod point directions. We had to stop him briefly so he wouldn't trip and fall on tombstones or plaque markers. At gravesites his rods never crossed which meant his mind was on only a distant object, the cannon. He was keeping the visual image in his mind while asking precise silent questions. Bob's rods never reacted or crossed at gravesites. Only positional triangulations towards the secret burial spot were noted. From wherever Bob walked one rod would always point towards one distant spot.

Once he narrowed the field he walked slowly and eventually the rods crossed in his hands over the grave. He sensed the rods movements, but didn't know they crossed. When he dropped his rods downward to a neutral stance, one rod beside each of his lower legs he waited they raised the rods and asked a silent question "Is the cannon buried beneath my feet?" The rods immediately crossed in his hands (positive answer) and his body trembled.

We led Bob away and unmasked him. We didn't want him to see the gravestie. We watched him dowse the same cannon spot from wider distances, two, three and four times. With full view of all the tombstones he asked the rods to point the direction to the gravesite and the line was marked on the opposite anchor rod. No matter from what angle he walked across the cemetery the rods wouldn't cross over any gravesites, but one rod continued to point out the direction from the circumference of the entire circle until both rods crossed when he passed over the "X" spot. He gave us goosebumps.

On the second trial when Bob saw the grave his Adam's apple jumped hard. He didn't believe it possible and he didn't want to believe he had possibly found or dowsed the cannon. He wasn't going to let his mind fool him, but over and over he dowsed the same spot from greater distances. The cannon rests in a dedicated grave in Cannonsburg cemetery. He stumbled backward, his voice trailing with "Naw, guys I could be wrong." He failed many times in wetland locations, but on dry land he was accurate. He constantly tried to disbelieve his findings. Was he right or wrong to assume the cannon was in this grave. Some dreams come true and some don't and he wasn't willing to accept success just yet.

We returned to the cemetery on July 12th and four tests more Bob dowsed the cannon at the same location. His rods never crossed over any other gravesites. No matter where he walked the rods always pointed towards the location. What he did notice was that the underground objects was sending stronger signals between the three anchor rods placed at different point on the circumference of the circle. Bob meant no disrespect for the dearly departed and he asked for forgiveness for investigating the cemetery findings, the only difference now was that he was attempting to disprove he had dowsed the cannon. He wouldn't let his mind release the cannon to its final resting spot. It was his way of dismissing his findings knowing nobody was going to ever see that cannon again and that is exactly what Tompsett's five buddies had accomplished.

Bob's body trembled after finding the spot four more times three days later. The signals where "X" markded the spot was stronger than on the 12th. It was the darker side of the lunar calendar when buried electromagnetic field objects have the strongest electrical fields. Each time he dowsed the gravesite he swallowed deeper, but the last time Bob dowsed his face was sullen, his body trembled and voice cracked softly "Guys, I could be wrong!" Allen Janose hung his head as Bob repeated his former statement, "Guys, I could be wrong, I-I could be-e-e wrong-g-g guys!"
His wildest dram was being shattered like glass, but it wasn't over. He had come to the realization it was here. He'd have to accept what he found and move onward.

He found the burial spot, but he had to figure out the size and feature of the cannon, so he backed up and when the rods opened straight ahead he placed a coin on the ground and walked forward, the rods crossed and swung open again. The object was 55-inches long and tapered from 9-11-9-8 at the large end. He had dowsed the reinforcement rings about an inch thick and the piece tapered down from 8 inches wide to five inches wide, then 6-8-6-5 inches near the muzzle. Again the widths were reinforcement rings. This is why the dockworkers in Grand Rapids in 1848 called it an ancient cannon. The cannon was buried from 87-95 inches deep. Bob said, "Guys, I could be-e wrong!"

Two more segments will finalize this story. Don't miss the exciting conclusion, because another mystery in this cemetery will yield a startling discovery that might prove correct the cannon's physical features.
