The green lady of Connecticut

In Burlington, Connecticut, the Green Lady Cemetery is haunted by the ghost of a Woman who drowned in the nearby swamp.

According to local legend, a Woman named Elizabeth lived with her husband in the house next to the cemetery.
During a particularly bad winter the husband left their house to get food and supplies. Unfortunately the storm was so bad that he was delayed for a few hours.
Meanwhile Elizabeth had grown concerned and had taken it upon herself to venture out into the storm and find her husband.
She got lost in the marshy woods and accidentally wandered into the swamp. She became trapped in the quicksand-like mud and slowly sank down, crying out for help.
Her husband was making his way back to the house, carrying a lantern to guide him, when he came upon his wife, sinking up to her neck in the marshy swamp.
For whatever reason, the husband refused to help her, no matter how much she pleaded with him. He simply watched as his wife sank deeper and deeper, ignoring her screams for help.
Eventually, the water rose above her head and Elizabeth drowned in the murky waters of the swamp.
Since then, witnesses have reported seeing the ghostly figure of a Woman walking on the dirt road surrounded in green mist.

They say the haunted cemetery is home to Elizabeth’s ghost and that she has returned to haunt her husband until his death. Her ghost drove him insane as revenge for watching her die.
But she did not leave after the death of her husband. Many residents in the area have sighted her in the past thirty years.
A young couple taking pictures in the graveyard, saw a green mist over one of the graves. When they checked later, they found that this was the grave where Elizabeth was buried.
A group of teens driving through the haunted cemetery were surprised by a green mist that suddenly appeared in front of the car, and caused them to swerve and crash into a tree.
A mysterious light is often seen near the swamp. Those who have seen it describe it as a lamp or lantern that doesn’t move at all. It just remains motionless by the side of the swamp. Locals believe that this is a lantern held by the ghost of Elizabeth’s husband, coldly watching his wife drown.
A group of friends walking through the cemetery said they were chased out by a mysterious man holding a lantern.
If you drive by the cemetery, you can see the house next door and the Green Lady’s portrait can be seen through the window. Locals say that even though the old house is abandoned, the portrait is still lit, bathed in a weird green light.


I DONT KNOW IF THESE PICTURES ARE REAL BY THE WAY

Great story!! Interesting about the green mist and green lights. A friend of mine is haunted in her home, and she swears that the times the spirit has shown himself to her, he has a green tint to him.

Thanks for posting this for us!!

that can be very well be cause it`s a younger person that "lives" in the house along with your friend. The energy is strong and pure...that`s why it`s greenish..
