She also says Mary leaves her messages on her computer. Fern likes to restore her home, spend time writing, and also take care of matters with her foundation. She is also a huge animal lover and an animal’s rights activist. She was inducted into the New Jersey hall of fame not too long ago.

As stated earlier, Fern says she owns a beautiful southern plantation in Summerville that is said to be well over 300 years old. The plantation is in the state of South Carolina. She shares the home with her husband, as well as a ghost named Mary Margaret.

Mary Margaret has also been documented by previous owners over the past few centuries. In her spare time, Fern likes to do restoration projects on the plantation, making sure it stays up to date and remains livable for years to come.
