I have wondered this myself as to why it caught my attention so strongly! Some intrinsic and extrinsic factors affecting the location’s energy and why it is different than other cemeteries include:
- It is located in the middle/right on top of the old mines – Literally a huge mine opening that is blocked off except for bats is right below the cemetery, and the mining vein runs right under it. There are also other open mines and shafts located on either side of it. The mining operation functioned all around this cemetery!
- It is a forgotten location – Of the reported 440 bodies that are buried here, only 40 still have legible markers.
- It is a forgotten mining community – The buildings of the mining operation are no longer standing. There are stone foundations which can still be found in the woods, but the houses and buildings are gone. The church that ran the cemetery burnt down in 1910 and was not rebuilt, although bodies continued to be buried here. These workers not only worked in the mines near this cemetery, they also LIVED near the cemetery too!
- Iron ore is in the geologic make up of the land – Iron is magnetic. Meaning that not only does it have its own crystalline structure as a metal, but it also has an energetic charge. This can strengthen, maintain, and assist spiritual activity in a location. Check out a list of all magnetic minerals HERE.
- Accidents around the location – Mining is inherently dangerous, and accidents and trauma may have happened around the cemetery.
For these reasons I feel that St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Hibernia, NJ has more history and mystery than most cemeteries I have encountered, and an enormous need to have its voice heard : )
