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."

Interesting tales!
A friend of mine lives in a house that used to be a stagecoach stop and then later a funeral parlor. He hears a woman calling out when there is no one else there and when the windows are all closed so it can't be street noise - says it isn't scary it just ticks him off.
If anyone is interested, my sister e-mailed me a list of haunted spots according to state. I think the links are still good. If you want it, PM me.

Two of my favorite ghost stories:

The Haunters and the Haunted, by Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Very Lovecraftian, long before Lovecraft.

The Horla, by Guy de Maupassant. Speaking of Lovecraft, he praised this story: "Relating the advent in France of an invisible being who lives on water and milk, sways the minds of others, and seems to be the vanguard of a horde of extra-terrestrial organisms arrived on earth to subjugate and overwhelm mankind, this tense narrative is perhaps without peer in its particular department."
