SHE GETS MORE ACTIVE DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS. SHE INFLUENCES YOUR MOOD AND MAKES YOU FEEL UNEASY OUT OF NO WHERE RIGHT BEFOR SHE MAKES CONTACT WITH YOU. SHE IS AGITATED BECAUSE HER GRAVE WAS MOVED FROM HER CHILDRENS WHEN THEY BUILT THE AIR STRIP. SHE ASKS MP`S FOR HELP OCCASIONALLY IN THE SAME AREA WHERE THE LCPL SAW HER. ONLY AT NIGHT IN ISOLATED AREAS. SHE HAS DARK HAIR DOWN TO HER KNEES AND IS SOMETIMES BELIEVED TO BE IN OR NEAR THE HOSPITAL ALTHOUGH I`VE NEVER HEARD OF ANYONE PERSONALLY SPOTTING HER NEAR THE HOSPITAL.

Two guys I worked with also tried to find the grave site of Kissy. Its rumored that in the back roads area of the base by the NBC site, you can find her grave in the small worn down graveyard.

I don`t know if her grave is actually out there, but the rumor is, one of the headstones is hers.

Anyway, they drove out at like 2 in the morning (we were all night crew guys), and got about 50 feet from the graveyard when the car died. After trying to start the car several times with no success, they tried to contact someone by cell phone. They found their phones had no cell reception.

Well they very quickly hoofed it out of there. They were pretty freaked out, but decided to go back and get the car back. They got another guy to drive them out so they could try and jump the car. Well the car still wouldn`t start when they got back out there.

They left with plans to try and retrieve the car the next day, when it wasn`t so dark.

Well the next day, the car started first crank with no jump... Take it for what it is, try it if you like, but I always say never tempt fate.

Me and my husband have been to the graveyard ourselves. And it is a pretty spooky place. You feel as if you are being watched. We haven't seen anything though. We noticed only two stones at the time, but a old neighbor of ours reported three stones. Then when he went back,there were only two. He felt that is was really creepy and weird. I have also heard the stories of a house that used to be on Catawba, but the house is no longer there. The reports are that PMO gets strange phone calls from the house and you can here screaming from children in the background and a woman crying a yelling telling them that she is needing help. Well when they go to the house there is no house to be found. Me a my husband we thinking if that is linked to Kissy Sikes. I guess we will never know.

I am currently an MP on board Cherry Point and I would really like to find Kissy. It sounds like something fun to do with some friends. Does anyone know how to find the back story on the woman?

I went out there just today and found 4 headstones. Among them was Kissy. Nothing weird or amazing happened. Just a stone with a name...

I am currently based at Cherry Point and know that Unsolved Mysteries has done a show on Kissy, if any one wants more info. Rumor has it that the grave yard got split in half when the base expanded it's run ways. Kissy stayed next to NBC and her children got moved to a new location on base. Thats why she is always looking for them. PMO has turned in badges and pilots have turned in wings.

look some of u dont know what ur talking about u cant just turn ur badge into PMO... and her grave say kissey sikes and the the age she died which was ( i was told ) 49. her grave is in a retricted area and u cant go there without consent. she does like the housing area i can tell u that, she slams r upstairs door to my sons bedroom and she plays tricks like opening doors that were deadbolted shut, and makes big crashing noises and nothing is broke. there is a log on the flightline that has all the sightings of her but good luck seeing it...i have tried to see her grave and get pics but was not aloud so if anyone has anymore info for me please give it up greendexter06@hotmail.com

Well im not completely sure that it is Kissy sikes that has haunted my house in base houseing but ,I have had an experience with something!! I was living in base housing on Northampton drive while I was a marine stationed in Cherry Point. Im a single mom and I also had a friend(also a single mom) living with me. One night I went to go change my sons diaper and I thought my friend was behind me because I felt someone walking behind me. Well I asked my friend for a diaper and she handed me one from behind and then about a second later she yelled from all the way downstairs in the kitchen to me asking if I wanted to have corn or green beans with my dinner....well needless to say it wasnt her and I grabbed my son and ran downstairs and I told her what had happened .we were so freaked out... That same day she had told me she was hearing stuff but didnt want me to think she was nuts.. After that , our doors in the back of the duplex would come open very late at night and the funny thing is I always made sure the deadbolt was locked every night , and every morning when I got up for work the door would open. We also seen my sons baby tricycle move across the back patio one night... I called the base housing people and they would not switch me to a new residence because they told me that I was just imagining it all but I know I was not..They told me that the wind would knock the doors so hard they would come open....

kissy's grave is beside the 5-right runway. you get there from access road. there is a small path blocked off by a pmo barrier, you can walk to it. i work for pmo, feel free to walk the path. nothing will happen. we scare "new guys" taking them down there at night. there are also some graves off of nbc road, you get there from cunningham blvd. it's the dirt road to your left by the pet warden shac, nothing happens there like "my car died and wouldn't start." we go there all the time. i have a picture of myself eating a mcdonald's cheeseburger laying on a grave (the one framed in by bricks). nothing happens!!! pmo can't just turn in our badges either, idiots! we are military just like anyone else. that's like saying an admin clerk turned in his keyboard, you're an idiot if you believe we can do that. no mysterious phone calls from any houses either. it IS fun to go out and THINK something might happen, i enjoy the thrill of being scared, too. but the truth is that none of this stuff happens. as far as the kid sitting in the guard shack "she wants her kids, she wants her kids," bogus, there are no reports of any of this. pmo uses a system to keep record of incidents they respond to, it's called CLEOC. law enforcement uses it all well, there is no such incident that exists. something like this would HAVE to go in the system. there are also graves at sunset park. that's the park at the end of the flightline. you can't go there at night (unless you're an MP... tee hee), but that place is awesome at night. there are probably around twenty graves or so here.

the directions are wrong how we used to get there was start at crash crew cross foxtrot and 23R proceed about 1/2 way down 32L to the access road and go right into the woods. there is a gate about a 1/2 mile from the grave and i seem to remember there being about a dozen stones there. the story we were told was that she was raped and murdered buy workers building the airfield in the early 40's and usually when she is seen on the flightline there will be 3 crashes involving planes stationed at or visiting cherry point. this is what i was told in the early 90's and yes i have seen the grave and actually did a rubbing of it.

Look, I don't know if any of this is real, but one of my co-workers have told me stories of Kissy and some events that have happened to him and his family in the staff k housing. The story that I was told was that all of his kids toys would move by themselves. If anybody has any REAL info that could really be something real, let us all know. Thank you.

If you can find the gas chamber you should be able to find Nbc road. If you need more info on how to get around base I can help with that but other than that I can't help. sweet_leilani_80@hotmail.com email me and I can see if I can help you find it.

if u live on base and know where the animal shelter on base is then i can tell u. head like ur going to the shelter or cunningham gate and take the road to the left right before the gate. follow that down along way. when u spot the gas chamber start looking to ur left and its off the side of the road. there is a couple of huge old trees and its got a metal fence around it.

Well the CLEOC thing only goes back so far. There are stories of military police going nuts. But things go from one thing to another as we all know. I was an MP there for 5 years and we have had calls for a woman in a white dress. There have been sightings a plenty. Kissys grave is on NBC road and her childrens grave are at sunset park. I have witnessed strange things. A buddy of mine was talking trash about her in an mp vehicle parked outside her grave and his rear right tire went flat. We moved the vehicle and the next night with a differant vehicle he and i were out there and it happened again. there was an MP when i first got there that was being processed out because he unloaded his shot gun into a woman in a white dress in the ordnance area. I am there as a civilian police officer now and have gotten a couple EVPs out at hers and the childrens graves. they werent very pleasant either.

I live on Cherry Point Base and am very interested in hearing EVP's. You should post them or a link to them so we can hear..

A couple weeks ago I was pulling into Alleghany rd and there was a lady standing at the kitchen window in #4, no one lives there yet. We had a party last night and the topic of Kissie came up so that started a whole conversation on ghost. Us ladies were sitting around our fire pit and were talking about going to her grave site to see if anything would happen. We continued talking about our own personal experiences and there was a loud *Sigh*. It freaked us out and so we darted in the house. I told my husband and he was drinking and wanted to go out and see if we were lying. He proceeded to curse her and he heard the same thing. He went to come into the house and the handle wouldn't turn on the door. The only was to lock it is from the dead bolt.

Just today me and some cameramen from Combat Camera and a local archeaological/anthropological guide went and plotted and filmed some of the graves around base. The Kissy Sykes grave is definitely the strangest no dates, just her name and age when she died. Sunset Park is definitely the best condition of all the ones I have seen. The largest is about a half mile past NBC it has about 35-40 graves.

I dont know if it was kissy or not but I lived on northampton road just like some one above, and I would always here a woman talking from my guest room. when I would investigate there were no tvs on and I was alone. then I moved to alleghany road and got two puppies because my husband works nights. I swear that some one was teasing them one night causing them to bark rediculously in my living room. someone was talking to them and telling them to shhh!

Where are the childrens graves located? I am doing a cemetery survey as part of the Historical Program on base. If any one knows where any grave sites are located you can find me in Room 159 of the Training and Education building (4335). Ask for Daniel Murphy.

last friday i went to krissy sikes grave. its a very creepy place. there is 3 other graves there, but hers is the only one that is crooked. you stand there in the middle of this graveyard and you feel like your being watched. her grave says exactly this "krissy Sikes ACD 40 years". if you live or work on cherry point your a marine then you know where the gas chamber is. the last bend when you see the gas chamber stop and look to your left you will see either the unmarked grave yard or a cut out toward the flight line dont be afraid to pull in there. its definitly interesting.. definitly check it out if you can

i am a 13 year old teenager....i have been stationed on cherry point for seven years now. i have had many encounters with Kissy Sikes. SHE WILL NOT HARM YOU ENLESS YOU INSULT HER OR HER KIDS(ESPECIALY). i have also seen one of the two kids she has, im guessing around the age of five or six.

My husband and i have been stationed here for a little over a year and i've just been told the kissy sykes story last night. What a coincidence because there has DEFINITELY been some strange behavior regarding my 22-month old (but of course i thought it was typical toddler behavior). When we first moved here he absolutely would NOT go in his room, then he started "sleep walking" (still does it) and he also talks to no one in particular. He also happens to get things from shelves that obviously can't be reached by a 2-foot kid. I constantly check our front door because it opens and closes by itself even with a room full of people. We always hear kids laughing by our windows. I gave birth in February and i always swaddle my baby and when i check on her at night shes unwrapped and facing a different direction. Night before last i swore i put my son to bed then seconds later my husband finds him in our living room casually flipping through the phone book. He throws his basketball to unseen friends and lately when we wake up in the morning my son is sleeping at the foot of our bed with his bottle, teddy bear, and his blanket. And when he goes t sleep he pulls his covers way over his head like he's hiding from something. Hell i found his drum set in the living room this morning. Wtf?? I even had a dream that some lady was in my house playing with my kids and i told her that this is MY house, MY family, MY kids, her kids weren't here and she needs to GET OUT! She was offended but she left really fast. I never saw her face just the back of her head. She seemed desperate and frustrated and in need of company, poor lady. Its also crazy how here in nugent cove no one comes out at night. Ive also walked in that empty neighborhood last year before they tore those houses down and had the strangest feeling i was being watched and followed (this was about 8 in the evening). Yeah, were getting the f out of here. I had no idea all the strange crap involving my babies would lead to another woman who lost hers.

i have lived in nugent cove since february of this year. i have a 4 yr old girl and a 6 month old boy. i hadn't heard this story until 3 nights ago. when i moved in my husband was in iraq returned in march. anyhow, shortly after moving in i noticed that my sons door, although not completely closed, would be locked. at first i thought it may have been my daughter. i started paying more attention and when i put my son down for the night, and my daughter is asleep, the door is unlocked. when he wakes up around 1 or 2 in the morning his door would be locked... anyone else had anything like this happen?? i live on hertford. wierd!

Kissie Sykes was my great aunt,she was one of the original families that lived in the area known today as Cherry Point MCAS.Kissie and her children were fishing along what is now Slocum creek when an alligator attacked her and her children,the attack caused her children to run onto the creek and drown.Kissie never new her childen had drowned but instead thought they had been scared into the woods,Kissie later died from the infections caused by the alligator and went to her grave asking for her children.

I live on gates rd in nugent cove. ever since i moved into my home iv thought it to be haunted. then my husband came home and told me about kissy. the more i look into it themore it makes sense. iv had lights turn on and off randomly. and my dog will stare down the hall and randomly bark. the odd thing is i just had a babygirl and the dog didnt start staring down the hall until she was born... her room is at the end of the hall. its creepy.

Anyone else in Nugent Cove/Staff K housing on Gates Rd? Please email me, if you have lived or live here on Gates and are having unusual happenings. My family including our dogs have had our fair share of events going on. I am about to call the chaplain, I am at a loss on what to do. I can't say that it is what everyone talks about here on base, but I conducted some research and there are 15 total grave sites on this base all from 1800 - to about 1930's, in 1940 they surveyed the land and built much of the housing over the unmarked graves. I won't say that it is Kissie Sikes, or any other person, I will say there is a black mass thing (like a mist) that has given us quite an issue. We can't use our baby monitors because of background noise that sounds like a humming of some sort. Please email me Jnabailey0710@yahoo.com

My father was a Lt Col in the Marine Corps and from 1962 to 1965 we were stationed at Cherry Point.  Having always been a "nightcrawler" with an overt love of old cemetaries, I was pretty happy when I came across the old family graveyard near the far end of the base.  Cherry Point is the world's largest Marine Corps Air Staion, running approximately 9 1/2 miles from the main gate to the Naval "crash crew" station at the end on the sound.  There is an earthen side road which takes you down to the officer's boat area.  Half way down this road is a very old cemetary which I was told is the burial plots for the family which once owned this land many years ago.  Some of the dates on the tombstones dated back to the early 1700's..To my understnding this is the only cemetary on Cherry Point.  Perhaps I'm wrong but I never heard of one close to the Staff housing which is about 6 miles away from the Officer housing.  Having spent many many hours at and in this graveyard, I NEVER experienced anything paranormal or ghostly.  I personally find cemetaries to be rather peaceful and relaxing.  Don't believe the dead can harm you in quite the way the living can harm you.  If this woman is looking for her children, why wouldn't she ask us to help her?  If my children were missing, I would certainly ask for help.  And I will never believe that any spirit not at rest, would take out vengeance on those who are either living or not living just because they can't find the right person to "even the score".  Just my thoughts....

PS...According to the USGS, there is only 1 cemetery on Cherry Point.  The one I have spoken about...The name is the Russell-Borden-Wetherington Cemetery...And there are only 7 gravestones in place....And Kissy is not one of them...

I have been an mp on cpnc for 3 years now and have two stories worth mentioning in this whole ghost hunt.  First off the story of the lcpl in  the guard shack was absolutely true.  He ended up in the hospital at leguene being treated for mental disorders.  This was in the early 90's I cant remember his name but a gunny I work for was a lcpl in a different platoon at the time and I know he remembers so I will try to post that later for anyone wishing to follow up on this.......  When i first got here i was doing a security check in the area that that lcpl was on duty (this was before I had heard his story).  No one mans that post now because the gates are automated and we just check them at night.  Me and a fello lcpl were parked in that area filling out paperwork when i had to relieve myself.  I got out of the car and walked a little more than 50 feet from it go, and i felt very uneasy couldnt even p easily.  While i was going i heard a very faint raspy voice say excuse me sir.  Admittedly it freaked me out and i ran back to the car.  No one could be back there.  When i got in the car i accused my buddy of playing a trick on me but i could tell from his oblivious look and concern for what my face was so white about that he hadn't.  We spot lighted the area for a minute in case someone was there and then left both of us refusing to go back down there again.  He has since left and i stayed away from the area for about two years.  I have been there since but have never so much as felt uneasy again...........

I had a neighbor that use to live next to me on Catawba and as soon as they moved in they said thier daughter refused to sleep in her room by herself because there were children in there that would come out at night and try and play with her. This little girl at the time was 3. A three year old isn't going to make up such a lie. They lived in that house for about 1.5 years and she never slept in that room or any other by herself. My dog has also seen things. I could tell because she all of a sudden was looking at something that she saw I couldn't and then the look disappreared from her face. I have no doubt th at this woman does make her appreances. Now if we can only get TAPS in here or someone to debunk all this it would be great. Anyone know if the base general will let this happen? But then again it isn't the type of attention the Marines are looking for. LOL

My family and I use to live on Durham Rd when station aboard Cherry Point and my daughter constantly was bothered by a little girl standing in our living room. At the time she was about 4 years old and it spooked her to the quick. I thought at the time it was just bad dreams or over active imagination but now years later I believe she in fact did have an encounters with one of Kissy children.

This was not mentioned, but my father is a CWO3 and told me the story of "Kissy" quite a few times.  This is what he told me...

When the airbase was built, there was a grave(Kissy's grave) in the middle of where they were going to build the runway.  They moved this grave off to the side of the runway thinking that it was no big deal.  What they didn't know, was that there was a child buried next to her.  That child, was her baby girl.  They didn't know it was there, and when they moved Kissy they seperated them, and that upset Kissy.  It has been reported several times, the most recent was in 2009, that Kissy walks the runway at night, to opposite side of her grave, towards her baby girl, because she is searching for her. 

   I do not believe Kissy means any harm, and if they removed the part of the runway where her little girl is, and moved her grave next to her mother's, that it would calm Kissy's spirit, and she could finally rest peacefully knowing her baby girl is with her once again.

I heard this story about 4 years when I first moved into binder and was really intrigued about it. recently we had some unexplained things happen in my sons bedroom.I decided I wanted to find out more about this kissie sykes. I searched forever and came up with nothing and then I found a death certificate in public record for a kissie sykes that died in this area but not from and alligator attack, it was acute food poisoning. also found an old map of the area before it was cherry point and there is a marker for a cemetery where the flight line is now located. not sure if all info I found was 100% creditable, but very interesting thought id share.

Geez, the unknown really makes people come up with the craziest connections. Lizzie's farm and house were just about in the center of the flightline.  There is a picture of it in Havelock Historian Eddie Ellis' photographic history of Havelock.  She was 47 when she died even thought the headstone says 40.  She didn't get beaten and raped by marines and she wasn't eaten by crocs, like her "niece" states.  According to the death certificate, she died of food poisoning.  Her grave, as well as quite a few others, was moved when CP was being built, blacks on one side, whites on the other, as was the custom at the time.

I have served nearly 9 yrs at the Cheerless Pit over a span of two decades. Held various MOSs and saw almost all of the base at one time or another. Never heard of Kissie Sykes until today and question the veracity of any of these Sea stories. You're all just bored out of your minds (like we all were) and are inventing excitement. Her headstone appears to be made of concrete, which any industrious Marine could pour in his spare time. The omission of a DoB or DoD on her stone is suspicious. It's quite likely to be an attempt to thwart any real investigations into her background. Those of you who claim the "food poisoning" hype, please CITE HER BIRTH AND DEATH DATES HERE. Otherwise, I consider your claims to be bogus and beer-initiated. If she was real, and her death had any involvement with her kids, DON'T YOU THINK THEY MIGHT HAVE INCLUDED THAT INFO (and her family lineage) ON HER HEADSTONE? DUH! Find me ONE other headstone in Craven County which has that little info on it. If you want to investigate something worthwhile, look into that weird little old lady who appears on the runway during takeoffs. She has caused FIVE (5) Alpha-damage air crashes and several fatalities since the late 1940s that I know about (maybe more since I retired). Today some call her "Miss Mary" but I never learned that name back in the day. She appears on various runways as full-throttle aircraft are *JUST* short of airspeed. They're going too fast to stop (to avoid her) and too slowly to fly. The evasive maneuvers to avoid colliding with her have caused several crashes. In 5 COMCABEAST Investigations I've read about her while stationed there, she was described only as "female caucasian, about 5'5" tall, with all-grey hair fastened into a bun behind her head". Several (but not all) of the reports cited her as wearing a long-sleeved blue sweater, regardless of the NC summer temps. The reports date from the 1940s into the late 1970s. SJA had custody of them. Several of them contained eyewitness statements of one OR MORE witnesses in the same aircraft, and transcripts of recorded radio transmissions btwn ATC and involved aircraft, complaining about civilian foot traffic on the active runway just before the crash occurs. Apparently she has never been viewed by the Tower, who often witnessed the aircraft self-destruct in an obvious attempt to avoid colliding with something the Tower couldn't see. At least THAT's something documented in official reports, with real DOA victims and some surviving eyewitnesses. It gives you more to investigate than some silly concrete headstone without a date on it. Gimme a break, guys. You're embarrassing me for believing in such crap. Kids being eaten by crocs. Good Grief.

I have some information that sort of pertains to this thread. My family once owned property on what is now MCAS Cherry Point. Naturally our family's property was purchased by the government many years ago, and anybody in our family that had ever lived there is certainly deceased by now. However, I do recall my grandmother talking with someone about a supposed haunting on board the base, and they mentioned a couple of different variations of the name ("Krissie/Kissie Sikes/Sykes"). My grandmother said that she never knew of a family by that name in that area when she was growing up, and that the whole story was probably just something made up by a couple of PFC's, meant to scare their buddies, and that the "haunting" probably took off from there. So as far as a "Sikes", or "Sykes" grave being there, I honestly don't know of one. However, if anyone is interested in old cemeteries (especially someone with a camera and time on their hands to kill, that wouldn't mind sharing the pics with me lol!), and if you can get permission from the PMO, look for the Barnes family cemetery. I'm sure someone around the base knows where it is. And if you know of any "folklore" pertaining to the cemetery, please let me know. William Pelletier

That would be great. I'd like to see an actual image of the grave just to put my own curiosity to rest. I guess it's a case (like it is in many other areas) where the neighbors were so sparse that my family didn't know about the Sykes family. It still raises the question as to whether or not she's behind the supposed hauntings, or if it's someone else..........

All accounts of the wandering ghost looking for her kids say she is a white female. Kissie Sykes is buried in the "Little Witness Church Cemetery". The Little Witness Church was a black church from the 20's and 30's. What are the odds of a white woman being buried in a black church cemetery in the 20's-30's?? Also, none of the graves in that cemetary were moved or relocated. So that debunks her wandering the base to try and find her kids that she was separated from when the "graves were relocated". The graveyard shes buried in is identical to pictures from 1941 before the base was built, i have seen it. You can verify this information at: http://www.edwardellis.com/cherry_point_cemeteries.htm Im not saying theres no ghost on cherry point, but it is not Kissie Sykes. email me at reidgriffin@rocketmail.com if you want more info or have some info for me.

The cemetery on access road is a little disappointing, it is only one grave. Sunset park has a quaint cemetery look with a nice big tree that makes for some nice pictures. Still looking for NBC Road/gas chamber. :( Don't wanna ask some random Marine for directions, and the hubby has no clue where it is!

We lived in Grants Landing and we also had experiences. 2 human shaped dark silhouettes standing in doorways, 2 forms, one of a child size and one of a larger size in repeat appearances. Our child told us he had seen someone as he played in his room. The dark silhouettes images were usually an out of the corner glance, however, appeared in full vision at the end of the hall once. Smaller silhouette was 4' tall, had pig tails and the larger appeared somewhat as an Native American husky male. The silhouettes seemingly had a density heavier than air, as sunlight did not pass readily through them. Prior to seeing the silhouettes, hair would stand up on my arms. No associated health problems noted while in the home and silhouettes did not effect environment physically. It's just one of those things we cannot explain. Perhaps, an imprinted event replaying. An unusual and unique experience to say the least. The home remains, as most homes have been torn down around it. The episodes were non threatening, so we'll just keep the house address to ourselves, in respect that we do not want to discomfort other people issued the home.

I live in slocum and the strangest thing happened to me this morning. We have no children and it was very distinctively a MANs voice. I walked around my home with the gun ad did not find anyone in the home with me. Has anyone else encountered anything in slocum? I feel like I sound crazy
