The O'Hanlon House Haunting:

The O'Hanlon House is a private residence located in the Omaha Heights area of Omaha, Nebraska.

John and Bridget O'Hanlon complained about a rapping sound at their door that grew worse over time. Whenever they would go to see who is was that was knocking, no one was there. Eventually, the knocking sound broke the door open. Sounds of disembodied footsteps reverberated through the house. Soon after, sounds of screaming and moaning came from their basement cellar. Objects started to move by themselves. Dishes flew out of the cupboards and chairs moved across the room.

According to one source, a human skeleton had been discovered in the basement of the O'Hanlon House. The skeleton supposedly belonged to a peddler who had been murdered there and his body hidden in the cellar.
