The Plowing Ghost of Fernandina, Florida

One of the most unusual ghost stories to appear in 19th century newspapers around the country is that of the Plowing Ghost of Fernandina, Florida.

The ghost was first noticed by a farmer as he looked out the window of his home while sitting up with a sick child. To his surprise, the mysterious figure of a man could be seen plowing a nearby field in the gloom of the night. Although the night was dark, the figures of the man and his horse were strangely illuminated.

The man sent his son out to investigate, only to watch in shock as the boy walked directly through the strange apparition without seeing it.

The story soon became well known throughout the area and was covered by newspapers throughout the country.
