DescriptionRecording of a ghost story told by Leah Hoffman, a Grade 8 student at Leary's Brook Junior High. Recorded in the Newman Wine Vaults Provincial Historic Site as part of the Young Folklorists Program run by the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador in May, 2011. Leah writes, "There was a Christian man in a haunted house and this lady came through the door and looked like a corpse. She said she would leave if her bones were properly buried, and she would give him money if he put her finger in the money basket at church, then her murderer would be found. It was found in a scary stories book I bought in a thrift store."
