My story happened about 15 years ago. I was a young married mom with a toddler. My husband and I had moved into the house of our dreams. A huge
victorian home built in 1902.
A year or so after we had moved in, I walked down the upstairs hallway and saw a little girl standing the in bathroom brushing her hair. She had long
brown curly hair, dressed in a below knee length light blue dress. She wore black lace up boots. She was staring into the mirror. She couldn't
have been any more that 7 or 8 years old.
I was stunned, looked away, and she was gone! It happened a total of three times over the 5 years we lived there.
I happened to go to the nursing home for our church and noticed that one of the residents had the same last name as the person who built the house.
He was in his 90's, but sharp as a tack!
I told him the house I lived in, he said his uncle had built that house. He had 4 daughters. I asked if any of the daughters were still alive, only
one was and she lived out west. The man reached over to his book shelf and pulled out a photo album. He had old pictures of the house and a family
photo of his uncle/aunt and 4 daughters. One of the daughters looked exactly like the ghost I had seen! I didn't tell the man that, I didn't want
him thinking I had gone crazy! I just pointed to the girl and quietly asked "what happened to this girl?" He stated that she died of tuberclioses
(can't spell) when she was 8 years old. She had been sick for a while, the parents refused to have her stay in the hospital. She died at home...in
the bedroom my daughter slept in.
To make the story complete, he told me that back in those times they would cut an invalids hair short (I never asked him to elaborate on that). A
month before she died his mother cut the girls hair. The girls mother saved it, and carried a lock of it in her purse so that her daughter would be
with her everywhere she went.
I no longer live in that house, but I have to say that after seeing the girl my bathroom the first time....I believe in ghosts.
