In honor of Halloween, the theme of 52 Ancestors next week is “Frightening.” Since I have yet to unearth any really frightening stories among my husband’s ancestors, I refer you back to three earlier stories–two about the haunted room of Jerusha Howe at the Wayside Inn, and one about an experience my mother had as a child.
- Introducing the Haunted Room of my 1st cousin 6 times removed: Jerusha Howe.
2. And the rest of the story-–Did I See Jerusha’s ghost?
3. My mother, Harriette Kaser, frightened by a corpse when Mother was a little girl.
4. And a picture essay of some not-at-all frightening graveyards.
Do you have a good ghost story that has been passed down in your family?
