1978, KINDERHOOK, NEW YORK, USA, BARRY SCOTT AND RUSSELL LEE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Sharon Jarvis, in a book on haunted houses and the paranormal, apparently reported that in Kinderhook, New York, in 1978, in the afternoon, two young boys, Barry Scott, and Russell Lee were camping in the woods, when they heard something tramping down the hill.

When they looked out of their tent, they saw something that floated more than it walked. Each boy apparently saw something different. Barry saw a bell shaped white being, and Russell saw something he described as "like the Virgin Mary."

Whatever it was, the entity vanished among the trees, leaving the two boys in a state of bewildered excitement.

The story later appeared in a "humanoid encounters" catalogue.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Kinderhook, New York, in 1978, in the afternoon, two young boys, Barry Scott, and Russell Lee were camping in the woods, when they heard something tramping down the hill. When they looked out of their tent, they saw something that floated more than it walked. Each boy apparently saw something different. Barry saw a bell shaped white being, and Russell saw something he described as "like the Virgin Mary." Whatever it was, the entity vanished among the trees, leaving the two boys in a state of bewildered excitement.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Sharon Jarvis, Dark Zones."

Points to consider:

Sharon Jarvis' book is not a ufology book but a guide to "hotspots of paranormal activity" dealing with - alleged - haunted houses.

It is impossible for me to evaluate the credibility that should be given to this report, but it is obvious that the fact that the boys gave different descriptions is a problem.
