Ghost Hunting in New Jersey

Old Tennent Church is a Presbyterian church located at 448 Tennent Road in Manalapan, New Jersey. The congregation, a member of the Presbyterian Church USA, was founded in 1692 and played a prominent role in the founding of Presbyterianism in America. The current edifice was completed throughout 1751-53 and was named in memory of pastors John Tennent and his brother William Tennent. The Old Tennent Cemetery is located on the same property, and the Association manages it. The church itself is a historic Revolutionary War site. Patriots fought and won a victory over the British close by, in the Battle of Monmouth. The church building was used as a temporary hospital for wounded soldiers.

During the Battle of Monmouth, Capt. Henry Fauntleroy sat on a tombstone in a cemetery for a brief moment when a cannonball ripped off one of his legs. He was taken inside the church, which was being used as the battlefield hospital. He died on a pew near the back of the church, where you can still see the bloodstains.

We went to the Church at night, and we communicated with Henry Fauntleroy’s spirit. We did not notice until we got home and edited our pictures; his shadow was on a tree directly near us at one point when we were talking with him.

Camera Gear and Settings Information

DSLR Camera Lens: Generally, this area is a wide-angle lens event, but you ideally need a lens with an open aperture such as 2.8 or below. The higher-end cameras will allow you to go to a very high ISO with less noise, so they are also ideal. If you don’t have a high camera, any camera will do. After all, we are not going for super high-quality images here. We are going for super high amounts of paranormal activity that we can document. As long as we get our evidence, it doesn’t always have to look pretty. You can see some of our lower-end camera images above are filled with grain, but we got what we were after.

Gear:  Bring your tripod and your infrared filter along with your infrared illuminating light and your shutter release. Bring your driver’s license just in case the police question you. Be prepared for that. Be sure there aren’t any NO TRESPASSING signs where you are, and you should be okay.

When to Go: Any time is adequate, but traditionally the best results have been documented after 9 p.m.

Cameras: A basic DSLR Can be used for night photography, but it cannot see in the absolute darkness. You must bring a light source of some kind for focusing and lighting.

Full Spectrum Digital Camera: – This camera takes quality Full Spectrum photos and video. They have been professionally modified to accept deeper Ultraviolet (UV) and Infrared (IR) light to allow pictures deep into the invisible spectrum of light. It features an easy to use interface with plenty of features to make your job easier and capturing evidence more efficient.

As with all cameras, this is best used with the aid of an external light source such as a UV light, IR light, or Full Spectrum (white) light.

Infrared (IR) Digital Camera: – Takes quality IR photos and video with the convenience and ease of a compact digital camera

Camera Settings: For basic DSLR Photography, our goal is capturing activity, not super high-quality images in general, so that we will do a few things a little out of the ordinary.  Set your ISO as high as you can for very dark locations.  You cannot shoot a DSLR in total darkness. You will need some light sources such as a flashlight, church lights, or a full moon.  Use your tripod and set your camera to manual mode. Set your ISO very high, depending on how much light you have.  You can go much higher on your higher-end cameras, but the higher you go, the more grain you will get. Again, it’s not always about avoiding grain or digital noise here.  Set your aperture to the lowest f-number; it will go to 2.8, (or your lowest aperture the camera allows) then scroll your shutter speed until the meter reads center zero. Now you are set.  You should be about several seconds on your shutter speed. If you do not have enough light, you can light things up with a flashlight.

EMF Meters: Measure fluctuations in electromagnet fields (or EM fields). These fields are a direct result of electrical appliances in a home, cell phones, power lines outside, and even fluctuations in solar activity and weather. Beyond that, a primary theory in the paranormal world is that entities can manipulate these fields in their attempt to manifest themselves or interact with our world.  When your meter goes off, do a long exposure on your tripod.
