Kathy & Stuart Fuld

Kathy and Stuart Fuld are single handedly responsible for ending a 96 year old bitter family feud as well as the inspiration for this very site. For this reason it is the only section I will write in the first person. Because of their honesty and willingness to dig up the past a new more thorough history of their family and the Ouija board is being written. They have opened their homes and their hearts with one goal in mind, to correct the misinformation which currently chronicles their family and the Ouija board. When we all met back in 1997 I don't think any of us had any idea what impact burying the hatchet would have. Clearly, deciding not to carry on a family feud that had been passed down from the previous two generations took courage. Borrowing enemies is easy. Yet, Kathy went out on a limb and decided to call Stuart and introduce herself, though she half expected to get hung up on. Little did she know that Stuart had waited his entire life for that call and had long ago given up on hearing from the other side. They are my friends, and this is their story.

Kathy and Stuart had both visited my original website OuijaWitch's Wonderful World of Talking Boards. Kathy, the granddaughter of William Fuld, decided to sign my guest book as “granddaughter of WF.” Of course, I had some pretty crazy things written on my guest book but after about a five-minute phone conversation I knew she was indeed who she said she was. Shortly after that I was contacted by Stuart Fuld, the grandson of Isaac Fuld. I had just finished reading a 1990 article in the August issue of Warefield's which featured an interview with Stuart. The timing couldn't have been better. Unfortunately, I learned that the Fuld feud was still going on and neither side had spoken with each other since 1901. Both Kathy and Stuart had been so wonderful, and I was scared to death to tell each side that the other one had made contact.

One night Kathy called me and asked for Stuart's number. About an hour later she called me back and told me she had talked to Stuart and made plans to go out to dinner with him and his wife. When Kathy introduced herself to Stuart on the phone, he said “I have waited my whole life for this phone call!” When they met for dinner Stuart hugged Kathy and didn't let go. He again explained he was sorry, but they had some ninety odd years to make up for. With the feud dead and buried their family's story began to emerge and with it the secrets of the Ouija board. Ten years later the families continue to stay in touch and get together when they can.
