Known as the Psychic
Wizard King Of Bourbon Street. A master psychic reader
advisor. The Reese Smith was born of an illustrious family
of powerful psychics and mediums on Maryland's majestic
eastern and serene shores, on December 4, 1943. Many say
the peaceful spiritual ebb tides strength and magic of
the beautiful serene Chesapeake Bay still mightily flow
through his very veins.
In growing up in a
wonderful family of the most talented of psychics, it
was at the tender age of 6 when his great amazing powers
were first witnessed by his maternal Grand Mother, Mr's
Mary North. But because of the times, 1950's people with
ESP or psychic spiritual powers were shunned.
Living through much
confusion during his middle teen years, Reese, was subjected
to strong religious fundamentalist teachings, Actually
attending Bible and Seminary school, saying that psychic
awareness and powers did not exist. This suppressed his
talents inwardly for a time. In no way did this diminish
his abilities, nor did they wavier. The more he was drawn
to Ministry the more the light of God shown into his heart
In his late 20's a
psychic premonition and a need to find his true calling
surfaced. Through deep meditatively soul searching, he
became fully aware of these mystical psychic gifts and
set out to reopen the channels in his mind. "It was
God that opened my eyes to what he wanted me to do with
this gift," says Smith. And the words of the Almighty
fell upon his ears. " Help My children find their
way... for they or lost in the wilderness of the darkness
of the world."
In finding his Powers
true value he attributes and credits his lifetime psychic
journey to four psychic master mentors who God placed
in his life.
Mrs. Louise Wolf his
maternal Grand Mothers sister, was the most influential
psychic family member. It is because of her insights and
tender teachings and nurturing that he knew what road
he must follow. Mrs. Elizabeth Gilbert, Fort Lauderdale's
well known adept master psychic, taught him how to tune
in and sharpen his great psychic abilities. Teaching him
how to read Cards, Palms, Tea Leaves and Crystal Ball
quite extensively. Rev. Rosy Martin world renowned psychic
advisor of Miramar, Florida guided him personally for
many years. Carol Corbin expanded his Tarot Knowledge
and Candle Magic Artistry. She helped perfectly fine tune
his clairvoyance and great ESP talents. To these perfect
four he credits his vast knowledge, talents and understanding.
For without their deep extensive teachings, his life,
his powers, all might have gone untapped.
Encouraged by visions
from God, Reese followed his psychic insights. On visiting
New Orleans many times over the years. He felt drawn to
return over and over again. Only in moving to New Orleans
his true fame and acclaim has only risen. The excitement
and lure of this truly magical haunted American City captured
his psychic spirit and has certainly never let loose.
"God put me in this City and told me,"Says Reese,
"Your destiny lays ahead, the world will change around
you and you will be my witness."
The haunting call
of the old French Quarter haunted him in his dreams many,
many times. Reese said openly to family and clients. And
in following the urgency of that dream he has become almost
overnight the French Quarters premiere and most famous
wonderfully adept reader master psychic advisor, Reese
the Magnificent Psychic Wizard King of Bourbon Street.
His time in New Orleans has established him internationally
and has only enhanced his accessibility and acclaim.
Drawn again by water
he has settled and changed his lifestyle to now be his
home. Once again touched by the echoing tidal swells and
long deep magical roots of New Orleans Mighty Mississippi
Since the devastation
of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Smith now lives in Marion,
North Carolina in a historic haunted home that he has
personally restored to it's past former glory. "The
Kanipe House has been in my dreams for over 20 years,"says
Smith. "And when I saw the great house I knew I was
finally home." " In my Heart of Hearts this
is where God wants me to be and shine in his praise, solely
to guide his lost souls back to him with my abilities
he so granted me."

Having worked with many well known paranormal investigators
over the years Smith became involved with what many
call today Ghost Hunting.
While his realization that it was to help the many
lost souls find their way back to God. Paranormal Investigator
Gina Lanier lead Smith into the world of the supernatural
and things that go bump in the night. As a team they
investigated many haunted homes in the deep south. From
the mighty Plantations along the Mississippi, to those
hidden spots where a lone soul needs comforting.
The City of New Orleans is by far the most haunted
city in The America's. With the number of ghost sightings
and mystical experiences. The Voodoo Capital of America
as it is often referred to is the hotspot for spooks
specters and an array of otherworldly encounters. And
makes the list at number seven as the most truly haunted
Hotspot in the United States. Renowned Paranormal Investigators
from around the world and weekend Ghost hunters flock
to this very haunted city to find out for themselves
what makes New Orleans truly really haunted! And they
all walk away with plans of returning very, very soon.
Home to the famed Cities Of The Dead, Above ground
tombs and the first known haunted house (LaLaurie Mansion)
in the country. No wonder this very haunted city makes
the list. It is also home to the legacy that was Marie
Laveau. New Orleans Ghosts are said to be the most active,
Most photographed and if I dare say lively of all the
spooks, specters Ghosts, Ghouls, Vampires, Zombies,
Banshee's, Voodoo Lwa's and Spirits, Demons, Devil Babies
Grunch, The Lost Dead, Werewolves (Loupe Garou) and
all the nameless unholy things that go bump in the night
in the whole of The United States of America.
A very diverse City with many, many Haunted Houses,
Haunted Cemeteries, Haunted Streets, Haunted Buildings,
and Haunted Bayous. Many believe their is at least 16
- 30 ghosts to every living person in the city tourist
included at any given time.
Everyone who has lived in The Crescent City usually
has more then one ghost story to tell. It is also home
to a swamp monster known as the Loupe Garou (or rou-garou)
The Cajun Werewolf or wolf man and the American Chupacabra
like Grunch sightings of which continue to this day.
The City has many connections to the past and historical
events that rocked the nation. It is also a place where
intrigue and bohemian lifestyle of the occult has always
thrived. Even the great beast Aleister Crowley visited
the City in his lifetime just to experience it's power.
Onieda Toups formed the first charter to the Religious
Order of Witchcraft in the 1970's.
New Orleans is not without it's many terrifying urban
legends. Tales of a Devil Baby the spawn of Satan roaming
the French Quarter for over the past 150 years have
never died. Grunch Road, Haunted Mardi Gras parades,
Haunted buildings, Ghost filled Cemeteries and of course
the legend of the Great Voodoo Queen.
The reported wishing haunted tomb of Voodoo Queen Marie
Laveau is visited by people from around the world. Located
in St. Louis Cemetery Number 1 in New Orleans Louisiana.
No one but Laveau is synonymously with the religion
then she. Her tomb attracts thousand of visitor s each
year. Ghost photos happen here all the time as well
as EVP's and daily voodoo hoodoo rituals. The cemetery
it is in is also very haunted and all of this in New
Orleans deemed by many as the most haunted city in America.
Marie Laveau was the reigning Voodoo priestess of the
nineteenth century. New Orleans Voodoo as a social phenomenon
came into its heyday during the 1800’s. Under
Marie Laveau’s guidance Voodoo thrived as a business,
served as a form of political influence, provided a
source of spectacle and entertainment, and was a means
of altruism. But what Voodoo is in its pure form is
religion: forms of worship brought to Caribbean and
American colonies through the slave trade.
Due to slavery, the entire life of the transplanted
African was tragically altered. Naturally the religious
beliefs and practices would change. This mutation of
West African religion under the strain of slavery ultimately
gave rise to the New-World phenomenon known as “voodoo.”
More than any one person, Marie Laveau transformed the
religious practices of African slaves into a major social
and cultural institution of nineteenth-century New Orleans.
On many levels, her life was an embodiment of New Orleans
Reese Smith said he felt the presence of a spirit
or ghosts when this photo was taken. Reese a
well known International Medium and Ghost Hunter
has hunted many haunted houses over the years
and says he knows when ghosts are near so just
snap a picture when he feels them draw near
during investigations of the paranormal.
Real Ghost Photos
Ghost Pic -Below -- Smith tells
a photographer snap the picture now!
Smith says he has had many encounters with
grave side ghost and that most just want to
be noticed. While still the others wish only
to be called on judgment day. Smith can often
be seen talking to the dead in Marion, NC old
cemeteries comforting many a lost soul. "
The Dead talk to me all the time." Smith
says., "Sometimes They even follow me home!"
Smith is a Clariaudient as well as Clairvoyant.
Meaning he see's and hears ghost when present.
Smith "I feel God sent me to New Orleans
To see how Many of his lost souls I could bring
back to him." says Smith.
Smith also does Private Tarot card readings
from his home in Marion, North Carolina. The
house is haunted by many ghosts he says. And
a very famous one at that!
Since Hurricane Katrina he lives in the former
home of Daniel A. Kanipe, Sergeant in Company
C, 7th Cavalry, was born, raised, and died in
McDowell County's Marion, near the Blue Ridge
Mountains of western North Carolina. He was
one of two soldiers who rode into the Battle
of the Little Bighorn with General George Armstrong
Custer in June of 1876 and lived to tell the
tale. As the legend of "Custer's Last Stand"
grew, Kanipe's eyewitness testimony and identification
of severely mangled bodies lived on in all historical
The Kanipe's moved into a house just south
of Marion at 238 Rutherford Road. The very real
Haunted house still stands in excellent repair
since Smith took ownership in 2006. "Kanipe
died here in this house and he still watches
over it" says Smith. " And he loves
what I have done to the place."
Many sensitive ghost investigators Like Reese
Smith pick up on ghosts in cemeteries but these
ghosts he says are usually those that feel the
must not leave the spot where they were buried
until the sound of Gabriel's horn.
Very little is known with
any certainty about the life of Marie Laveau. One must
keep in mind that her surviving daughter had the same
name, so the two were confused in later years in most
recalled accounts. However it is thought, the mother was
more powerful and the daughter was more elaborate in encouraging
the public events (including inviting attendees to the
St. John's Eve rituals on Bayou St. John) and financial
response to their efforts. It is not known to which (if
not both) the voodoo queen reputation refers in most respects.
Marie I is supposed to have been born in the French Quarter
of New Orleans, Louisiana around 1800's, the daughter
of a white planter and a free Creole of Color. She married
Jacques (or Santiago, in other records) Paris, also a
free Creole of color, on August 4, 1819; her marriage
certificate is preserved in Saint Louis Cathedral in New
She is said to be buried in Saint Louis Cemetery #1
in New Orleans in the Glapion family crypt, although
even this is in dispute, according to Robert Tallant,
one of her biographers. Still the tomb continues to
attract visitors who draw three crosses (XXX) on its
side, hoping that her spirit will grant them a wish.
Others state she is buried in other tombs but may be
confusing the resting place of other voodoo priestess
of New Orleans.
Reese Smith Ghost Hunting for
the Real Voodoo Queens spirit at the tomb of
Smith believes that Marie Laveaus' ghost is
restless because of the many demands that are
put on her soul by the living. At the end of
her life she became a true Christian, leaving
her voodoo ways behind her.
During the extensive investigation, Smith told
Paranormal Investigator Gina
Lanier that Marie Laveau kept telling
him, "I want to find My eternal lasting
peace with God!" Smith unshaken went on
to say " Marie wants to enter the Kingdom
of Heaven." " But she is afraid to
leave, not knowing that God forgave her long
ago." " She is here because she fears
her Judgment Day." "And at that time
it was believed you stayed buried until The
Sound of the last trumpet."
Smith states the reason her spirit is so duly
trapped in her tomb is people will not let her
go. The more you keep focusing on the dead the
more you keep them in this reality.
He also stated that he knows her bones are
not in the grave. That the family, Archdiocese
of New Orleans or individuals had them secretly
moved years ago. He says also that she does
not care about her mortal shell. Laveau told
him whether it was ground to make zombie dust
or cursed to the bowels of hell, that is done.
But Laveau's precious spirits is locked for
ever at her tomb for those sins she calls her
The Ghost of Daniel A. Kanipe,
Sergeant in Company C, 7th Cavalry
Many people have seen ghost lights in the nearby
cemetery where the family is buried. These ghost
lights, they appear nightly in the cemetery,
with no set pattern, they weave in and out of
the head stones and trees until they reach the
edge near the entrance, then they just disappear
only to reappear in another spot.

Kanipe Family Grave Ghost photo. This photo
was taken recently and sent to www.hauntedamericatours.com
by Ghost hunter Glenn Davis Lee on his recent
trip to Marion, NC. Lee made a special visit
to meet with Smith cornering his ability to
command or know when ghost can be photographed.
Lee captured this amazing, what he calls real,
ghost photo when Smith said for him too.
"Ghost hunting in cemeteries is certainly
nothing new, it just takes a deep interest in
specters, spooks and shades to get the ball
rolling." "The grave yard investigative
search for ghosts to many die hard's is more
of a proving ground for those that wish to see
if there is more to life then just our daily
existence." "Others now a days seem
to do it for the kick of just getting scared."
Reese Smith's Haunted House
The house is very haunted, or so the town has
believed for many years. When displaced by Hurricane
Katrina August 29, 2005 Smith followed his intuition
again. It lead him to Marion NC. And when he
saw the great house their were no other that
would satisfy the deep need that the house put
The great home was in a state if almost ruin.
"God had shown me this house in my dreams
for nearly half a century ," Smith Says.
"The moment I walked in the door I was
"In two ghost photo Below blow up of the
above house photo you can plainly see the face
of a real ghost or two in the window payne reflections."
From the day Smith began moving into the house
he knew it was haunted. His dog Twanda would
act as if someone un-seen was playing with her.
His cat would seem to follow something around
every room. Sometimes looking curiously, others
very frightened. Smith has seen Kanipe's wife's
ghost many times in the kitchen. And Daniel
Knaipe's ghost sitting in what was once his
office. Or very early descending the magnificent
Chandeliers tinkle like wind chimes as if moved
by unseen hands. Voices and whispers are sometimes
heard echoing upstairs. And If you sit very
still in his grand parlor Smith says you can
smell the odor of Lilacs. When in the Bathroom
occasionally you might hear the little girl's
voice as Smith calls it. And you can also hear
whispering voices in the hallway. Also the ghosts
like to move small items in their rooms and
Smith finds many things rearranged or missing
Smith says he see's their ghost so often he
just thinks nothing of it unless they want his
attention over a serious matter. And the things
they tell Smith he says have proven to be true.
Smith says Knaipe's Wife Annie Missouri ghost's
is often herd by his dogs walking around the
large home and she loves playing with the TV
and stereo equipment.
Annie Missouri's ghost also asked Smith to
please take care of her grave and bring her
some flowers, states Smith.
Smith has yet to investigate East McDowell
Jr. High School (Marion, NC)
In the early 1900's an orphanage sat on the
lot where East McDowell Jr. High sits now. It
burned to the ground and some of the children
who lived at the orphanage died in the fire.
At night you are supposed to be able to hear
the children crying in the back parking lot,
and the library is haunted by the supervisor
of the orphanage who also died in the fire.
You can see her on the upstairs balcony of the
Pleasant Gardens Baptist Church (Marion, NC)
This church is haunted by a woman who has been
seen dressed in pink or off white. People all
over town talk of her legend and say that if
you leave any color but pink flowers or blood
red roses on her grave, you can expect see her
ghost walking down the road with a knife in
her hand the following day.
Smith just spent some time in 2007 investigating
the The Biltmore Estate (Asheville, NC). Back
in 1914, George W. Vanderbilt died from complications
from a surgery he had for appendicitis. His
wife was extremely upset. So late at night,
in the Library, she would sit in front of the
large marble fireplace, and talk with George
though he was never really there. Her servants
started to think she was losing her mind. To
this day, late at night you can still hear her
voice talking with George very softly. Also,
you can feel George's presence in the Billiard
Room, and the 2nd floor Oak Sitting room, one
of his favorite rooms in the mansion. During
rainy late nights, George would sit and read.
Workers report feelings of being watched, apparitions,
voices, laughing, & screams. A headless
orange cat has been seen by numerous visitors
roaming the area between the Gardens and the
Bass pond. The Pool Room is also a focal point
of unexplainable events. The sound of people
swimming echoes throughout the entire lower
floor in the dead of night. Insane laughter
can be heard coming from the drain at the bottom
of the pool. It is said to be haunted by a lady
in black. Employees report hearing footsteps
on the second floor. It's $10 for the small
tour and $50 for the full tour of the house.
But be sure you stay CLOSE to the guide. Odds
are, there will only be 3 or 4 people touring
