The oriole cemetery
The town of Oriole has a recorded post office that existed from 1884 to 1898. A census recorded that approximately 100 whites inhabited the area. Unfortunately, it appears that the town was wiped out by influenza. We take it for granted today with our modern medicine, but before vaccines, antibiotics, and emergency medicine, diseases were much more feared. Especially vulnerable were young children.After the demise of the town, the Oriole Phosphate Mining Company applied for and received a permit to mine 50 tons daily from the area between the present day Withlacoochee River and Croom Forest beginning in 1912. In previous hikes we have readily noticed the old railroad beds and tram ways cris-crossing the land as well as holes, valleys, and man made lakes remaining from the operation. -info from
Video and evp
This footage was captured during a night investigation at The Oriole Cemetery in Florida out in the area known as Croom. We get strange temp changes on our Mel Meter that jump from 66.6 degrees to 72.2 degrees. When returning to the spot where the temp went to 66.6 a investigator ask for the spirit to come and touch the Mel Meter showing they are around. At that moment the Investigator seen a shadow figure with his own eyes and after calling it out the figure moves quickly to the right. We are in complete darkness, the only light out was moon light shrouded in fog. We were not using any kind of light source other than our I/R flashlight which is only visible on our infrared camcorder. *
