James Chaffin returns to sort out his will



Type of Spiritual Experience



I don't think he did return.  I think this is a straightforward case of communication between brothers, probably well meant as it sorted out all the hassle.  One of them decided that a bit of psychic invention might serve to sort out all the problems.

Who keeps a dead father's overcoat for 4 years?

Perhaps they did in the 1920s, but I am suspicious of this entry, which I have provided as a record of how supposed psychic events can sometimes provide convenient endings to difficult family problems.

This observation is thus not a true entry but a warning for the more gullible, one of whom on this occasion appears to have been Lyall Watson!

A description of the experience

The Romeo Error – Lyall Watson

In 1921, James Chaffin of North Carolina died, leaving all his property to one of his four sons who himself died intestate a year later.

In 1925, the second son was visited by his dead father dressed in a black overcoat, who said, "You will find my will in my overcoat pocket." When the real coat was examined, a roll of paper was found sewn into the lining with instructions to read the twenty-seventh chapter of Genesis in the family Bible.

Folded into the relevant pages was a later will than the first one, dividing the property equally between all four sons.
