In addition to children playing on the grounds, one of the spirits may be Lee Temple Friend or John Valentine Maxey. Lee was brought to Fort Concho as a prisoner of the Comanches that had been released in an agreement made with them. He was reunited with his family however it seems he never really recovered from the trauma and he died not long after. Perhaps his spirit remains here in forever locked in heartbreak.
John Maxey was just 5-years old when he and his younger sister were kidnapped by the Comanches. His sister was killed however he managed to survive his wounds. He remained with the Comanches and reportedly did not recall his life prior to the kidnapping. He was eventually reunited with his family and died in 1898. I suspect that, despite being reunited with his family, he was never the same again.
Frontier life was no picnic and conditions were sometimes bleak. Any of the traumatic experiences suffered by the residents of Fort Concho could leave an emotional imprint on the area, making paranormal activity a very real possibility. As I stated before, I hope to take the team out there soon and record some of the paranormal activity for ourselves. Until then.....
.....make this beautiful day count!
