Tashua Burying Ground by GUDRUN355 Tashua Burying Ground by GUDRUN355
at 1st Episcopal Church in Trumbull. Veterans of many conflicts since the 1700s are buried here. Local lore reports that at least 2 soldiers in full uniform are seen here haunting the graveyard. Also a "White Lady" who waits among the gravestones for her love to return from battle. From the day time photo, it is hard to imagine because it looks so peaceful.

It is hard to imagine anything sad being in this place when that tree is bursting with life and vitality. Perhaps it is a sign to stop and remmember when it flowers. Have you tried searching "Youtube" on the net for the pictures (and possibly a video) on the subject of "Ghosts at Trumbull"? Somehow or other everything ends up on Youtube....:)))

There will always be a white lady waiting for her lost soldier ...all over the world.

True. I love those old legends. And the tales of the Black Dog, too.

I think I missed out on that one unless it was the inspiration for Hound of the Baskervilles.

[link] I was surprised to find it has it's own Wiki! My mother (who is Irish) has many stories.
