The following is the result of an interview with Robert Ennis (pronounced like Guinness without the G). Robert is engaged to our lovely case manager, and subject of our last interview, Pam Marcom.
PCSW: Tell me what got you interested in the paranormal?
PCSW: Can you expound on that just a little bit?
Robert: Ok. In Vietnam I died. There’s no light at the end of the tunnel. It was like someone turned the flash light off. I was curious if there is something after death. I’m not afraid of what’s there, I’m just curious about what’s there. Both times I died there was no light.
PCSW: Both times you died? How long were you dead?
Robert: I don’t know. I know I woke up three months later in Da Nang hospital. They told the colonel I was awake and he came in and gave me a purple heart. Now my daughter has it, I think.
Pam: He was dead long enough for them to tell his mother he had died. She didn’t know any different until Robert called her and told her he was alive.
Robert: Yeah. I called her from Da Nang. I said, “Hey mom this is Robert.” She didn’t believe me so she sent my brother Larry, who was in Thailand at the time, to make sure. He got dispensation to come over, because to brothers at that time couldn’t be together in a war zone. So he called her up and said, “yup, its Robert.”
PCSW: Wow, that’s hard to follow up with another question! So, what brought you into this group?
Pam. She said, “lets do it” and I said, “alright, I don’t care.” I wasn’t playing ball anymore and I didn’t know it was going cost this much money.
PCSW: Where do you see the group going? Or where do you want it to go?
Robert: As far as it can. I like those angel earrings. We’ve got that thing already with Ghost Adventures. So lets go as far as we can!
PCSW: If you have one piece of advice for any new people trying to get into paranormal investigations, what would that be?
Robert: Do it. Be sure that it is something that you want to do because it takes more time than you think and it costs more money than you think. And make sure you’re not doing it for the right reasons.

I recently had the opportunity to interview Pam Marcom. She is the 5ft2in (so she claims), spunkier than a full-grown chihuahua, case manager and a founding member of Pacific Coast Spirit Watch.
Monica: So Pam, what got you started in paranormal investigations?
Pam: I’ve always been interested in it and wanted to know what answers were out there. Was there something, pardon the pun but is “is there something out there?” You’re gonna have to drag this out of me.
Monica: I’m probably gonna have too. So how did the group get started?
Pam: It started out with a bunch a friends going to Virginia City and we had such a great time that we decided that we’d form a group and continue on.
Monica: What has been your favorite moment so far? In regards to paranormal investigation
Pam: (snickers) When Mikey went running out of the miners cabin like a little girl.
Monica: What brought that on?
Pam: When we were in the miners cabin. The rest of us were sitting in the front room talking while Michael was walking toward the back of the cabin and taking pictures in the last bathroom when the water turned on by itself. He went running out of that room like a scared little girl; screaming at the top of his lungs. When he made it outside, he found he had scratches. But the funny thing was, I didn’t know that boy could run that fast.
Monica: Is he going to be ok me sharing that.
Pam:Oh yeah, because he shares with everybody too. We even have pictures of the scratches on the website.
Monica: So as the case manager what are your hopes for the group? Where would you like to see it go?
Pam: That’s a good question. I’d like to see us to continue to be a cohesive group and to see us become more professional in the way that we do things. We are in our infancy and still learning. And I hope we continue to get the opportunities we have been and going places no one else gets to go. Everyone can go to the Washoe if you’ve got $100, you can go to Preston castle if you’ve got $100. But not everybody has the opportunity to go to places like Gibson Ranch or Mare Island. These may not be the obvious option for paranormal investigations. Everybody wants to go to the cemetery at Mare Island, there have been many groups that have done that. But I don’t think anybody has thought about the aspect of going all the way to the top of the hill going by the bunkers. Walking around the area, it’s a very historic site. Nobody has ever investigated the Argonaut mine and to me that’s amazing. People died in a very bad fire in that mine, and you’d think the residual energy alone would be fantastic. The Aerospace museum, the auto museum: these are places no one has even considered going and we are very lucky to have the opportunity. We have the opportunity to go to Sutter’s Fort; we just need to be able to get all the documentation ready to go.
Monica: If you were to give one piece of advice for someone wanting to get started in the paranormal investigation field, what would that be?
Pam: read a lot and be patient. I wasn’t much of a fisherman as a kid but I’m beginning to realize that paranormal investigation is a lot like fishing. You got to have the right bait, and you got to sit there and you got to wait to get your nibble. And there’s’ gonna be times when you’re not gonna catch anything and there’ll be times when you catch your limit. You just gotta take it as it comes. Do not think that you know everything. Do your research and if you don’t enjoy it, don’t do it. If you’re not gonna enjoy it, you’re not gonna stick with it.

We started the year with an investigtion of the Mormon Island Cemetery in El Dorado HIlls, CA
Mormon Island is a relocation cemetery that was created in 1954 by the Army Corps of Engineers. It was used as a replacement for several cemeteries submerged below Folsom Lake when the Folsom Dam was built in 1955.
The cemetery holds the relocated remains of some of the earliest mining camps established after the 1848 discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill in Coloma, California. Remains from Mormon Island, Salmon Falls, Negro Hill, Condemned Bar, Carrollton Bar, McDowell’s Hill, Natural Dam and Doton’s Bar cemeteries, plus five individual graves were relocated to the new Mormon Island Cemetery. The earliest burial from any of these cemeteries could have been 1848, since several of these Mining Camps were first established in that year.
About this Site
At five acres, Mormon Island (Mormon Island Relocation Cemetery) is one of the largest cemeteries in the County. Approximately one-half of this area is currently undeveloped; however, the area is being saved by the County for future cemetery relocations. This cemetery is currently inactive and only accepts remains for previously-purchased plots. There are 474 occupied plots recorded in the cemetery and 17 plots that have been purchased for future burials.
Time Period Represented: Gold Rush (1848-1855)
The team got some great pictures and evps that will be added to the site in a view days.

As a child I would awake to find strangers standing next to my bed. My parents thought it was night terrors. Doctor's responded by giving my parents medications to help me sleep.
Now that I am older a realized that it may be possible I had some psychic capibilities, as we all do as children but because my family did not understand I did not have the support to develop them.
Thoughout my life I have experienced deja vu. Dreams of locations that in the future I would find myself in with no explaination as to how it came to be. Years after my grandfather died I would smell the scent of his tobacco he smoked. Hearing my voice called when I am to only one in the house.
I am now trying to regain those abilities and embrace what I do not understand. With time and the help of my friends in the group I hope to regain them as well as expand them in the future.
