Wow, just saw this and watched the dead files episode. Never knew anything g about this. How fascinating. Wondering if you have ever recovered the diary? Are you still looking for it? Would live to know the truth of what happened there. Best wishes to your new journey and will be following that home as well.

Hi Lisa, Thank you for the kind words. I have found a pair of boys wool knickers in the floor and a few other items. I am still looking for correspondence. Apparently, I am supposed to know they "are closer than I think". I am not sure I can figure that out. lol This summer I will be going into my 7th year of owning the mansion which is now 125 years old.

Hello from England! I just watched your episode of Dead files, and its my personal Favourite so far. My heart goes out to Valeria! reading your guestbook it seems you have a lovely bond with her now which is nice for her. People too easily forget even tho they are "ghosts" they are still people with valid feelings! please pass my regards if you dont mind. have you managed to find her letters?

Hi Dominique, Thank you for the kind words about the house. It is a bit interesting talking to living people about talking to dead people. I get lots of inquiries and I try to talk about my ability as best I can. I have been able to communicate with the other side since I was a young child. It was very scary for me then, but now it is more mainstream and people are interested and receptive. the house is very great and the spirits very friendly and protective of me. Even with my primitive ability I seem to run into spirits all over the place. Some stories I choose not to hear though. There is only so much a girl can deal with on a daily basis. :)

Hi and thank you for the info about the newspaper articles. I haven't looked at it for a while. Savannah I have indeed found the tunnel. I have found an 1890's pair of boys knickers, buttons, and a few other things. I am still investigating other areas of the basement. I love the house. It is a very safe place.

hi Kelly, I really enjoyed watching you on Dead Files. My favorite episode so far. Very happy to see a positive communication with someone who has passed over. I was not sure if you were aware of this site that holds more info on Valeria including newspaper clippings and possibly photos. I have used it often on my own research with ancestors. Thank you again!

Hello, I am very curious as to whether you ever discovered the tunnel when you remodeled the basement? If it is true how she died, that would certainly help prove it and correct the previous stories about her death, which I feel she deserves. I think it's truly awesome that your committed to restoring the house and helping Valeria. I did watch the Dead Files episode and thought it was very interesting that there was indeed filler dirt underneath the floor. Any way it would be a good history find for Great Falls and proof for Valeria! I myself have encounters with the dead and I'm glad Valeria and others can turn to you to help tell the truth about their stories :)

Thank you for all the kind words and interest. At the moment there is no blog. I use the guest book to respond. The house is really an amazing, safe place. I just love it. I am not sure how the first two children died. I seem to remember something like an illness like a cold, which was common in those days. Very sad. I tried to find Valeria's house in Minnesota, but it was torn down. It was in a very prominent area by the Catholic Church if I am not mistaken. I have not seen the grave photos, and would like to look at the link. I tore the basement apart this summer because it flooded. I am looking for more clues and will keep you all posted. Thank you again for all your support and interest. I really means a lot to me and Valeria. Kelly

Hi Kelly, there is a blog mentioned on your page. Are you still doing that? I noticed that they posted two pictures on find a that are supposed to be Valeria. One of them doesn't even look old enough to be her. Any thoughts on those photos being genuine? I hope you are doing ok in the house with all those spirits. :)

I agree with Gracie totally! Valeria did mention she was writing just before argument with Theodore. Great respect for you Kelly. I was wondering what the 2 young children died from & if they were girls? Best wishes too you

I'm fascinated by the story of Valeria and how the family wiped her off the face of the earth with no records. Best of luck to you to uncover more of her truth.

Kelly, I just wanted to say that what you are doing seem to be important, how i'm not sure, but my intuition is telling me you are on the right path and the truth needs to come out. Keep up the good work and I cant wait to read your book once it is published. May you be blessed in all your research and communications with the other side.

I live up the street from you Kelly (a few blocks) we should start a 4th Ave 'historical society' to find out more about our old homes. ; ) Did you post your ghost picture anywhere?

Kelly P said:   July 5, 2013 6:52 pm PST
Well 2013 has produced another interesting year at the old Gibson Mansion. 4th of July fireworks produced an image of a ghost. They just can't seem to leave me alone for a night. I guess I should write a book based on what the other side tells me.

Char said:   October 8, 2012 7:53 pm PST

Hi Kelly, saw your story on "Dead Files" Here is a link for the photo of Valeria (Goodenow Sweat) Gibson. Like to discuss more details, have a few thoughts on where the diary could be based on the clues Valeria might have given you. Email me back at my email, prefer not to make it public.

Kelly said:   April 19, 2012 5:31 am PST
Hi Local, The information you have written is the information that is widely reported. I have heard it too. There were many rumors about Valeria being an invalid in addition to the two newspaper articles of which one says she fell off the park hotel and the other says she jumped or committed suicide (Miles City Paper). There is very little surviving info about her. I had no idea what happened to her, nor did I really care, until I bought this house. I can only tell you what dead people tell me in pretty interesting detail. Valeria is not the only person who has revealed her story to me. There are many things the dead have shared with me and I do not know why they choose to share with me stories they do. The other mansion you refer to I have been in many times and has many stories too. Kelly
