A Ghost Report from the St. Paul Daily Globe on February 26, 1886

Spectral EditionIn life, a Connecticut woman is haunted by her.

In death, she seems to haunt the house where she committed a horrible act.

And Mr. And Mrs. Ray just wanted to use that house as a summer retreat.

Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can hear me read many of the ghost reports here, readings first heard on episodes of The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts.

UPDATE: Transcribing enough ghost reports to fill a book has been fun but tiring work, but I’m on the fourth chapter of Spectral Edition: Ghost Reports from U.S. Newspapers, 1865-1918. I hope to have the book available before the end of year — ideally before Halloween!
