Wednesday 10th: Local Ghosties Demand a Book!
Chose a horror, supernatural, scary, or ghost story that you’ve heard and is local to your area/home town, or a personal scary experience. Tells us about this and write a blurb too!
So in the North East there is one ghost story or local myths that I find to be really interesting and have always caught my attention whenever I hear someone talking about it. Which, with the friends I have tends to happen a lot. Ghost stories are one of my favorite things to talk about or watch on TV or YouTube, any recommendations let me know! Here are those two stories.
The Lady in White
This one is a tad bit sad, it starts with a young daughter going missing on the shores of Lake Ontario. This area can get very cold during some times of the year and cold water is never a good thing to jump into. While I am unsure of what time of the year the young girl went missing, but it is said that she went missing in the 1800s. No one knows if she was taken, murdered, or wondered and became lost or fell victim to the water. A lot of the stories I have heard revolve around her running away with a boy and he turns on her or she is taken and murdered. Whatever tragically happened to this girl, we do know that her mother was very, very upset.
The mother never gave up looking for her daughter even when her community slowly gave up, the weather turned worse as the seasons cycled through. As the years passed she was said to continue to walk around the water and the surrounding area of Durand-Eastman Park. She continued to do this until her passing, or did she really stop?
It is said that when you go to this area that you could see a few different things. A women in white walking up and out of the water onto the land searching and looking for those who may have taken her daughter, or the body of her young child. Some of the tales say that she is accompanied by two dogs who help in her search.
legend is one of many similar tales across the country. The story goes that a woman in the 19th Century lost her daughter on the shores of Lake Ontario. She spent the rest of her life looking for her, and continued to haunt the lake after her death, where she is said to appear as a white apparition. But, locals always say she is the most present during the full moon.
