Moore House, Virginia - Said to be haunted by Augustine Moore Jr, who was shot by a stray bullet when working in the family fields during the Revolutionary War. Another ghost believed to lurk is John Turner, a merchant who chose to watch the shelling of the British Army in Yorktown just days before they surrendered. Unfortunately he was too close to the shelling. He was wounded and died in his wife's arms, who is believed to haunt the house as well.
