Date of Discovery
Union Cemetery dates back to the 1700s and is one of the most haunted cemeteries in the United States. Most of the spirits roaming its grounds do not come with a clear origin or reports recording their first sightings.
The Lady in White also known as the White Lady, roam the Easton, Connecticut grounds of Union Cemetery and it’s surrounding roads.
The White Lady is described as having longing black hair and a white gown, possibly a wedding gown. Many have reported her floating just above the ground around the graves.
The Lady in White’s origin is a bit of a mystery, multiple stories try to explain were her spirit came from and why she is “haunting” the cemetery. One legend says she’s the spirit of a woman who was murdered in the 1940s after killing her husband; another legend is that she was killed at the turn of the 20th century and dumped in the sinkhole behind the church. The last legend states she died in childbirth and is still roaming the earth searching for her lost child. We still can’t say for certain where her spirit came from, as she is not a talkative ghost.
Mythology & Lore
The White Lady has been seen by several visitors to the graveyard, as well as been captured in many photographs and videos (most famous being Ed Warren’s). The Lady in White also likes to appear in the middle of Route 59 seeming to be “hit” by a car, only to leave the driver shaken and confused after she disappears. She has many reports of sightings on roads nearby the Easton Cemetery, but there are also reports stating the White Lady has also been seen in a Monroe cemetery as well. It seems most reports show she is not an angry or malicious spirit, rather one that is a minor trickster playing harmless games with visitors to the grounds.
