I read the book and it is just fantastic. I grew up in Charlton and was best friends with the grand daughter of Hammond.

I also grew up in Spencer and was raised in the Hammond Mansion on High Street. The book as okay - the accounting from the 1930s reporter for Police Magazine entitled "Sinister Halo" was much better.

I played wiith my siblings at the Prouty mansion when I was a child. I remember the baby carriage and the little dolls in the atttic. They had beautiful stairs and glass things everywhere.On the left,facing out, third floor there was a balcony outside. I was so facinated! Then they tore it down...

The women who wrote the book plagarized a much of it; never giving credit to the "Sinister Halo" author. Many Spencer historians dislike this book because of all the inacuracies.

One summer's day in the early 60s my cousin and I had the effrontery to enter the Prouty mansion, uninvited. They were calling it Cournoyer's mansion in those days and I believe it was being rented out to roomers. At any rate the front door was unlocked, and we entered and walked up a hallway. We opened the first door we encountered and saw a woman with red hair asleep on a bed, whereupon we beat a hasty retreat back out onto Cherry St. We were about 12 at the time, so it was probably 1961.

I lived in the mansion from 82-88.Yes it was haunted by Maria Prouty.The DA involved in the case is my grandmothers great,cousin.The book deliver us from evil,is extremely false!!Those ladies payed for that info stolen by parents friend and then lied too.Just look up the old articles from 1985,and you will see my parents on the cover of the worcester telegram and Gazette.Along you will read the true hauntings.And to the ladies and their book,i'll see you soon....

The book is fiction, find the earlier arcticles of Ted Rabouin! Funny how in the book "Deliver us from evil" he claims to have never gone about the Prouty murders or ever being on its ground, home or residence. But earlier articles from the 80's in the telegram & gazette would differ of Rabouins claims to have never known anything about the prouty murders until now and in this book.Ted wouldn't have to wory about Maria being pissed, hes dead already!!!!

to the two couples who wrote deliver us from evil. you did not research one moment of fact in regards to these happenings. you see my wife and I and children bought the house on cherry street in 1981. soon after when certain unexplained events started happening and I was informed by local neighbors about what had taken place in 1899. I spent countless hours in the local library looking at all the newspaper accounts and microfilm. even got the death books from Pillsbury funeral home. so all the material you got ,you got from people I left it with. maybe someday I will show you an actual photograph of the spirit of maria prouty. ted the psychic was in our home on three different occasions to feel the spirit of maria, so he was well aware of everything. we also know who leaves gifts at marias grave. next time you write a book get all your facts together,before you tell people that the previous owners were scared out of town.
