My grandmother has told this story many times over the years.
When she was ten years old, her family moved into a house without running water, (not uncommon in the 1930's)so, every day a bucket of water would be drawn from the well and taken inside for drinking and general use.
There was a stairway dividing the kitchen and living room. One day after bringing in the water the family saw a little girl in a brown dress standing on the bottom stair. She appeared several times over the next few days. Finally,the next time she appeared, she was asked,"What do you want child?" The little girl replied,"Please move the bucket because cold water is dripping on my grave."
The bucket was moved and the little girl was never seen again..I hope you enjoy this story.
