Mr. Searles transports mail between Milford and Delaware Water Gap, Philadelphia. He claims he’s seen a ghost on his route. Repeatedly!
Some think it’s only someone in a sheet.
Others speculate it’s the spirit of John Goble, who had been murdered on that road fifty-two years earlier.
Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can also hear me read the articles on The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts — or listen to previously released recordings here.
