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....:)))

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.

Do those soldiers haunt the graveyard or guard it? Perhaps they are sentries on patrol, keeping vigil over their resting comrades. I've heard of other legends that are similar. I beautiful young girl waiting for her love to return home to her. Whenever I visit a graveyard where veterans are unturned, I will always tear up. These brave souls gave of themselves so that we could remain free! We must never ever forget that sacrifice!

I know what you mean. The idea of sentries guarding their comrades is an appealing one because it is an honorable and benevolent duty. On Veteran's Day, this place is a sea of little flags. They will not be forgotten. Thank you!

A few years back, some supernatural investigators came here to try to film the White Lady apparition. I believe (and I saved the news artcle) that one got some ghost lights on camera and the other, a vague outline of a human form seated on the gravestone. I've got to find the article because since we moved, things remain packed in storage.

You can always try and find it using the internet google... things can be a mess when we try to find something after a change.
There a few researches very well done, imparcial in a way, they don't turn into "I want to sell the supernatural to you act" I like that so we can form our own conclusions.
