- A group of ghost hunters was spending a weekend at Beauvoir.

The Sun Herald reports some folks argue Beauvoir not only houses relics from Jefferson Davis' time on the Gulf Coast, they say his family and Confederate soldiers still wander the grounds of the historic home.

Enter Scott Rogers and MGCParanormal, a group of about 10 people whose expertise includes areas such as engineering, technology and medicine. The group moved recently to investigate.

"One (staffer says) he sees Jeff Davis a couple of times a week standing in the main hall," Rogers said. "Full-body apparitions are a rarity, but they're normal there."

He said visitors have even sent in photos, depicting ghostly figures in the background.

"There's a file, I'm guessing 30 or 40 photographs that visitors have sent back to them," Rogers said. "There are photographs of full-body apparitions that aren't supposed to be there.

"They have captured Jeff Davis, his wife, Varina, his daughter, Winnie, and, they haven't been captured, but it's common occurrence for them to talk about a Confederate soldier walking the grounds at times whenever they don't have people doing re-enactments."

Rogers said the group goes into jobs looking to debunk the stories before accepting them as real.
