The Lady in White
"The Ghostly Sphinx of Metedeconk" by Stephen Crane recounts the
tale of a White Lady whose lover was drowned in 1815: "In the
afternoon and early evening, a female spirit in a white dress
wanders around the graveyard of Charleston's Unitarian graveyard.
She is known as the "Lady in White" by the locals. She is said to be
the spirit of a woman who died at about the same time that her
husband died as his ship sailed for Boston, Massachusetts. Neither
of them knew of the other's demise. She was buried in the Unitarian
cemetery while he was buried in Boston , where his spirit allegedly
haunts that graveyard. The ethereal "Lady in White" searches the
graveyard eternally for her husband."
