Easton/Monroe, Connecticut – Cemeteries
For many years, visitors to the Union Cemetery in Easton reported having conversations with lifelike apparitions, who walk among the tombstones and then disappear into thin air. This type of ghost, known as a “lepke,” seems as real as any other person until it vanishes from sight. Acquaintances of people buried here say the apparitions talk and behave exactly as they did when alive. This is also the haunt of the infamous White Lady, observed many times over the last fifty years. The same White Lady ghost is seen at another nearby (Our Lady of the Rosary Chapel Cemetery ). She wears a white nightgown with a bonnet. In 1993, a local fireman “ran over” the ghost in his pickup truck. Sometimes witnesses observe dark, shadowy figures attempting to grab the White Lady. Investigator Ed Warren believes she is Mrs. Knot, whose husband was murdered near Easton in the 1940s. The woman may have been murdered too, shortly after her husband’s funeral.
