Marshall, Texas: The Ghost Crying White Lady, And The Real "Woman in White"

Marshall, Texas: The Ghost Lady, And The Real "Woman in White"  

La Llorona , or approximately "lah yoh-ROH-nah", Spanish for "the crying woman"), sometimes called the Woman in White or the Weeping Woman is a figure in Hispanic folklore, the ghost of a woman crying for her dead children that she drowned. Her appearances are sometimes held to presage death and frequently are claimed to occur near bodies of water, particularly streams and rivers. There is much variation in tales of La Llorona, which are popular in Mexico and the United States (especially in Mexican American communities), and to an extent the rest of the Americas.

by Tamilla Easter Jackson

Many versions of La Llorona's origin exist. Here is a comparatively common version. Maria (La Llorona) thought she was very beautiful, so she wanted the handsomest man to marry. So she got what she wanted. Once they were married they had a boy and after that a girl. Last they had boy. Maria's husband started to work out of town for a month or so. He came to visit his children, but not his wife. He didn't pay attention to her. Once Maria's husband came to visit them, but he came with a woman. He talked to his children and told them he was going to marry another woman. Maria was so mad that she got mad at her own children for no reason. So that's when she took them to the river and drowned them. Then she realized what she had done and started to cry for her children and killed herself. Next morning a man from the village came with the story that he found Maria dead by the riverbank. So the villagers buried her. In the very middle of the night they heard a woman crying for her children and that's when they found out it was Maria's ghost. People then started calling her "La Llorona".

In my home town the ghost lady as some call her the "Woman In White". The city of Marshall, Texas was a political and production center of the Confederacy during the Civil War, and was a major railroad center of the T&P Railroad from the late 19th century until the mid-20th century. The city's large African American population and the presence of black institutions of higher learning made Marshall a center of the civil rights movement in the South. The city is known for holding one of the largest light festivals in the United States, the Wonderland of Lights,and, as the self-proclaimed Pottery Capital of the World, for its sizable pottery industry. But it is also known for the very real haunting of a ghost the locals call "The Crying Lady in White".

"The Crying White Lady Ghost will lead you to the newly dead in Marshall, Texas." "And she has been seen by many doing this for over 100 years!" " I personally know because I have witnessed her several times over the years."

... Lisa Lee Harp Waugh

This haunted Woman's Ghost is said to lead people to the spot where someone is dead. usually that of murders or people who often just fall through the cracks. To see the White Woman means to follow her. She is often seen or heard crying loudly. If you see her more then three times in a year it is said you might die the following year from unknown causes. Many real Marshall, Texas ghost stories usually always circulate cornering the ghost lady somehow. Many have said they have seen the White Woman on or near their way home only to go home and find someone recently fresh dead.

The city is bisected along a north-south axis by East End Blvd. (US 59). The eastern half of the city is bisected along an east-west axis by US 80 which east of its intersection with US 59 is called Victory Drive and west of US 59 is named Grand Ave. The Harrison County Airport and Airport Baseball Park are located to the south of Victory Dr. off of Warren Dr. This is said to be good spot to start your paranormal investigation. Many say she is often spotted in this area on late Friday nights.

White Lady ghost at Wiley College

Wiley College, the first historically Black college west of the Mississippi, was founded in 1873 by Bishop Issac Wiley of the United Methodist Church and the Freedman's Aid Society to prepare newly emancipated people for the future.

Wiley College is located in the Piney Woods of northeast Texas in the city of Marshall and serves the youth of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and consistently attracts students from throughout the United States and from many foreign countries. Paranormal activity there is only spoken of in hushed tones. Though there are several paranormal secret investigations groups made of students hunting for the real ghost that haunt the buildings and area.

Some think The White Lady of Marshall, Texas is said to date back to a nurse of the Confederacy during the Civil War. By 1860 the city was the fourth largest city in Texas and the seat of the richest county. The county had more slaves than any other in the state, making it a hotbed of anti-Union sentiment. When Gov. Sam Houston refused to take an oath of allegiance to the Confederacy, Marshall's Edward Clark was sworn in as governor. Marshall would also produce Texas's third Confederate governor, Pendleton Murrah. Marshall became a major Confederate city; producing gunpowder and other supplies for the Confederate Army, and hosting three conferences of Trans-Mississippi and Indian Territory leaders.

The city was founded in 1841 as the seat of Harrison County, after repeated failed attempts to establish a county seat on the Sabine River since the county was established in 1839, and was incorporated in 1843. The Republic of Texas decided to choose the site of land granted by Peter Whetstone and Isaac Van Zandt after Whetstone had proven that the hilly location had a good water source. The city quickly became a major city in the state because of its position as a gateway to Texas on several major stage coach lines. The establishment of several "colleges"— schools offering little more than secondary education—earned Marshall the nickname the Athens of Texas, in reference to the ancient Greek city state. The city's growing importance was confirmed when Marshall was linked by a telegraph line to New Orleans, becoming the first city in Texas to have a telegraph service.

From old New Orleans is where she is said to have arrived from. A widow woman with 2 boys and the girl her name is not really known but many have said that just call her the White Crying Woman. They say she had never recovered from the death of her husband. She is said to have been the secret mistress of a high ranking official and he knowing her husband had died moved her to Marshall Texas to be rid of her. In her depression, she drowned her kids and then herself in the Sabine River.

When she reached the gates of heaven, the Lord asked her "Where are your children?" She answered "I don't know my Lord." The Lord then said "You shall not enter these gates without your children." From that point on she roams the earth in search for her children in the rivers and streams of the Texas Louisiana area.

To the west of downtown are some of the oldest African-American neighborhoods in Texas, centered around Wiley College. This is where she is said to have lived with her children before she died. To the north of Grand Ave. (US 80) are neighborhoods that were built largely by employees of the Texas and Pacific Railway. Some say her home was burnt down when people discovered the crime she committed. In addition to the Ginocchio National Historic District, this part of the city is home to East Texas Baptist University, and three historic cemeteries: Marshall Cemetery, Powder Mill Cemetery, and Greenwood, which is divided into Christian and Jewish sections. They say this is where she is buried and that her children's voices have been recorded as EVP's.

Who is The White Lady Ghost

A White Lady is a type of female ghost purported to appear in many rural areas, and who is supposed to have died tragically or suffered trauma in life. White Lady legends are found around the world. Common to many of them is the theme of losing or being betrayed by a husband or fiancé. They are often associated with an individual family line, as a harbinger of death. When one of these ghosts is seen it indicates that someone in the family is going to die.

Generally, the aspects of this phenomena are that the ghost is female, dressed in late era Victorian garb, seen along a rural road, and associated with some local legend of tragedy.

A White Lady was first sighted in the Berliner Schloss in 1625 and sightings have been reported up until 1888. This castle is the residence of the kings of Prussia and so the Lady has been linked to several historical figures:

the guilt-ridden countess Kunigunda of Orlamünde, born landgravin of Leuchtenberg (Oberpfalz), who murdered her own children
the unfortunate widow Bertha of Rosenberg from Bohemia, overthrown by the heathen Perchta
the Hungarian princess Kunigunda of Slavonia, who first married king Ottokar II of Bohemia and then one of the lords of Rosenberg

United States
A local legend tells of the White Lady of Acra, the ghost of a woman who died on her way home from her wedding night in the 1800s. Although no one has come into contact with her, many older people claim to have seen her especially on the abandoned dirt road she is rumored to haunt.

Branch Brook Park in Newark, New Jersey, is home to the legend of the White Lady of Branch Brook Park. Two conflicting stories are told about this ghost. In one version, the lady was a newlywed who was killed along with her husband on her wedding night when their car skidded out of control and crashed into a tree in the park. In another version, the couple were on their way to a prom when their limousine crashed; the boy lived but the girl died, and she is allegedly still looking for her prom date. The White Lady of Branch Brook Park was also known in Newark's Roseville section, which borders the park, as Mary Yoo-Hoo. For many years the tree in question was along a sharp curve in the park road and part of its trunk was painted white, but it has since been cut down completely. It was said that on rainy or misty nights passing headlights produced a ghostly image crossing the road. There is some evidence that the details of this legend have been borrowed or blurred into other legends. Annie's Road, in particular, is thought to be a rehosting of this legend.

Is this a White Lady Ghost appearing In Gettysburg?

Is this a White Lady Ghost appearing In Gettysburg?

The White Lady who haunts Durand-Eastman Park in the Rochester, New York, area is believed to be the spirit of a mother whose daughter was kidnapped and raped.

The gold rush ghost town of Bodie, California, is home to many ghost stories. One involves "The White Lady," a woman who was affianced to a miner from Bodie. On his way to trade his gold for cash, he rented room #19 at the Bridgeport Inn in nearby Bridgeport and left his fiancée in the safety of the inn, as he felt it too dangerous for her to accompany him on his journey. Unfortunately, the miner was robbed and killed on his way to claim his fortune. Upon hearing of his demise, distraught and unsure of what to do next, the White Lady hung herself in her room. An apparition of a woman dressed in white (possibly in a wedding dress) is said to walk the halls of the Bridgeport Inn to this day, waiting for her lover’s return.

"The Ghostly Sphinx of Metedeconk" by Stephen Crane recounts the tale of a White Lady whose lover was drowned in 1815:

In the afternoon and early evening, a female spirit in a white dress wanders around the graveyard of Charleston's Unitarian graveyard. She is known as the "Lady in White" by the locals. She is said to be the spirit of a woman who died at about the same time that her husband died as his ship sailed for Boston, Massachusetts. Neither of them knew of the other's demise. She was buried in the Unitarian cemetery while he was buried in Boston, where his spirit allegedly haunts that graveyard. The ethereal "Lady in White" searches the graveyard eternally for her husband.

Union Cemetery in Easton, Connecticut is arguably one of the most haunted cemeteries in the country. The most well-known haunt is a spirit known as "The White Lady". The identity of the spirit is not known, but sightings of her didn't occur until the late 1940s; meaning she must have died sometime before then. She is also said to haunt the nearby Stepney Cemetery in Monroe, Connecticut.

Another tale of a White Lady is the Headless Bride who haunts the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone National Park. She is said to have been murdered by her ambitious new husband. After she fell in love with the servant, they went on a trip to Yellowstone. However, the young man managed to gamble away the money, and when the women asked her father for more money, and he refused, the husband beheaded his wife and fled. They say she haunts only the Old House, since that was the only part when she was alive. Every night around midnight, she descends from the Crow's Nest. Then, she turns, and you see tucked under her arm, her head! She is dressed in her old wedding gown. After she looks around sadly, she realizes her husband has not returned for her, and sadly disappears.

In Santa Cruz, California, a White Lady can be heard and seen wandering the forest near the cemetery at night. Rumor has it that a man drugged his wife on their wedding night, then burned down the house while she remained unconscious inside. The White Lady or "White Witch" now haunts the blackness in her wedding dress. She is known to move about loudly and approach those nearby. She is dangerous.

White Lady Ghost Photo: The most Famous real ghost photo to haunt the world!

The Brown Lady
This portrait of "The Brown Lady" ghost is arguably the most famous and well-regarded ghost photograph ever taken. The ghost is thought to be that of Lady Dorothy Townshend, wife of Charles Townshend, 2nd Viscount of Raynham, residents of Raynham Hall in Norfolk, England in the early 1700s.

The White Lady of Balete Drive, in Quezon City, is a ghost who appears as a long-haired woman in a white dress. According to legend, she was raped and killed by Japanese soldiers during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines in World War II. Most of the stories that have come out about her were told by taxi drivers doing the graveyard shift. In other instances it is said that when solitary people drive by Balete Drive in the wee hours of the morning, they tend to see the face of a woman in white in the rear view mirror for a split second before the apparition disappears. Some accidents on this road are blamed on the White Lady.

Great Britain

"White Lady" is a common name in Great Britain for a female ghost, sometimes that of a nun. In popular medieval legend, a White Lady is fabled to appear by day as well as by night in a house in which a family member is soon to die. According to The Nuttall Encyclopaedia, these spirits were regarded as the ghosts of deceased ancestresses.

Castle Huntly, Scotland, is said to be haunted by a young woman dressed in flowing white robes. There are various stories concerning her history, one of which is that she was a daughter of the Lyon family who occupied the castle in the 17th century. When her affair with a manservant was discovered, she was banished to a high tower overlooking the battlements. Unable to endure her suffering, she threw herself to her death from the tower. The ghost of the White Lady has been seen a number of times over the years, often on the grounds surrounding the castle. She has also been seen in the room in which she was imprisoned.

The White Lady of Willow Park is native to a small, heavily-wooded park of Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside, in northwest England. She is thought to be the tormented spirit of a bride who was drowned in the lake by her husband on their wedding night. Variations on her method of death include being bricked up in a cave and hanging herself in the kitchen.

Muncaster Castle in the county of Cumbria is reputed to be one of England's most haunted houses. The vengeful ghost in white of Mary Bragg, a foul-mouthed local girl who was murdered by being hanged from the Main Gate by drunken youths in the 19th century after they had kidnapped her for a joke, is also referred to as the white lady.The white lady has been sighted in Chadkirk, Manchester floating across the canal

Roughwood Nature Reserve in the Black Country also has had a high number of paranormal incidents, including sightings of a woman in a white period dress, drenched in ichor from the lake where it is rumored her body was abandoned. Local myths suggest this is the spirit of Pauline Kelly, who with her daughter Evelyn disappeared in the mid 1800's. The local community have a Halloween tradition involving dressing in white dresses, as well as a jokey rhyme.

"White Lady,White Lady, Come get your baby"

This rhyme came into being after stories involving the kidnap of the child after the death of Mrs Kelly, which keeps her rooted to this world.

Tulip Staircase Ghost
Rev. Ralph Hardy, a retired clergyman from White Rock, British Columbia, took this now-famous photograph in 1966. He intended merely to photograph the elegant spiral staircase (known as the "Tulip Staircase") in the Queen's House section of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England. Upon development, however, the photo revealed a shrouded figure climbing the stairs, seeming to hold the railing with both hands.

Other Texan Haunting White Woman

In South Texas, however, the story of La Llorona is that of a beautiful young woman who attracts the attentions of a wealthy man's son though she is very poor. The lovers secretly marry and set up a household; they have several children. Unfortunately, a day comes when the young man's father announces that he has arranged a marriage for his son to a young woman within their social class (in many tellings, La Llorona is a Native American peasant maiden and her man leaves her for a Spanish lady). The young man tells his secret wife that he must leave her and that he will never see her again. She is driven mad by anger and a broken heart, and takes their children to a river where she drowns them to spite her husband. When her husband finds out he and several townspeople go to find her, but she kills herself before they can apprehend her. She goes to Heaven and faces the judgement of God. God asks her, "Where are your children?" to which she replies, "I do not know." God asks her three times and she replies with the same answer. God then damns her to walk the earth to search for her children. According to this tale, it is wise to avoid La Llorona, as she is known for drowning passers-by in an attempt to replace her dead children. Alternatively, right after she drowns her children, La Llorona realizes what she has done and, overwhelmed by grief and by guilt, she runs alongside the river trying to find her children, but never does, and she dies or disappears in her search for them.

Another popular version of the legend takes place sometime in 19th century. A beautiful young woman with two small children was living in the poorest section of Juarez, Mexico, the town across the border from El Paso. She was madly in love with a very rich man. He felt the same way about her, but he, having no interest in children, refused to marry her. So, late one night, the woman took her children to a bridge over the Rio Grande. In the dead of the night, she heartlessly stabbed her children and threw them in the river to drown. Still wearing her bloody nightgown, she went to her lover's home to show him the great lengths she had gone to be with him. The man, seeing her blood-streaked nightgown, was horrified and rejected her. Then, finally realizing the horrible mistake she had made, she ran back to the river screaming, crying, and tearing at her hair, desperately trying to save her children. But it was too late. The woman stabbed and drowned herself in the same river. The legend has it that as punishment for her unspeakable sins she was given the head of a horse, and was to wander the banks of the Rio Grande for all of eternity looking for her lost children.

In yet another Texas version of the story, La Llorona had several children from her first marriage. Her husband died and she was left lonely. Soon she met a suitor who swept her off her feet. He promised her a wonderful life together, but only if she agreed to get rid of her children. After much soul searching the woman decides to follow the man in a new life together and drowns her children in the Rio Grande. After a few months the suitor grows tired of La Llorona and leaves her for another woman. Realizing that her selfish actions brought about the end of those who truly loved her, she dies in grief with her soul eternally looking for her long lost children.

In another variant, La Llorona is a naive but innocent woman forced into a shotgun wedding with the father of her child; in this case, it is La Llorona's father or her husband who kills the children. La Llorona attempts to stop the murders, and dies in the attempt.


In another variation from New Mexico, the La Llorona is a middle-class woman. After having several children, she is widowed. She slowly loses her mind and one night takes a walk but leaves the stove on. The house catches on fire and all her children die. She tries to save them but can't and is severely burned. Consumed by grief she wanders, dressed in black rags, around the Southwest, taking children who disobey their parents or stay out to late to be her own.

Another version of the story of La Llorona is told in Mexico. She lived in Tequila, Jalisco. She went to get her fortune told, and was told that she was going to die, and so were her children. That same night, while they were sleeping, a big storm hit their village, causing the river to overflow its banks. The house was swept away by the flood, and all of her children died. La Llorona went on a journey to find her children, following the river, but died without ever seeing them again.

In southern Mexico specifically the state of Guerrero, La Llorona was a prostitute. She would abort some children and throw them in the nearby river of Tecpan. After having done this for many years, she died and legend has it that God told her she would never enter Heaven until she brought him all the children she had killed. So God ordered his angels to dress her in a white dress and send her to find her children. So she wanders the rivers of the Earth looking for her drowned children.

Generally, La Llorona becomes a sort of banshee. Her restless spirit walks abroad at night, crying "¡O hijos mios!" or "¡Ay mis hijos!" (O my children!) if not "¿Donde estan mis hijos?" (Where are my children?) or "¿Has visto a mis hijos?" (Have you seen my children?), the later options and variants being used before it reveals its ghostly nature to the victim leading to the victims death. Those unlucky enough to see or hear her are marked for death themselves. Sometimes she is dressed all in white; other times, in black. She is weeping, and in some tellings her eyes are empty sockets or in death she has been reduced to only a skeleton. In some accounts she tricks her victims by appearing in the guise of a familiar person. Accounts of sightings in Texas tell of an eerie figure with a woman's body but the head of a horse. The New Mexican La Llorona hunts after children; some say that she drowns them in the river.


In Guatemala, La Llorona's legend doesn't change much. It adds the scary trait that her wail, when heard as if from far off, announces the proximity of the ghost, when heard as if it's nearby, then the ghost is far away. This bears superficial resemblance to the sounds made by the kikik from Filipino folklore.

Some stories say that la Llorona was a criolla (one of unmixed Spanish descent) that was the wife of a wealthy Spaniard. In one of his trips, she falls in love with a poor mix-raced man and she becomes pregnant. She drowned her baby to hide the affair, and was damned for it.

Among the other attributes in these traditions are that she only materializes near a source of water, which may be any such as a pond, lake, or even pila (laundry tank). It is mostly men who witness or encounter her ghostly figure; some have said that a man who encounters her goes insane or develops a critical mental trauma. Entire towns have supposedly heard her horrendous cry.

"La Llorona appears mostly in the mountains or in una poza (a place where people go wash their clothes). They say that you hear her cry at night. One day my friend told me that she was sitting with her family in the kitchen eating supper and all of a sudden she heard a lady cry. Her family thought it was the neighbor Juan that had beaten his wife again and she was crying. But all of a sudden they heard it closer and it didn't sound like Juan's wife. The weeping was so horrible they covered their ears they started to pray and moments later it stopped. Then they figured out that it was La Llorona," says Marcella Rodriguez.


The Weeping Woman has also been said to roam around rivers in Honduras. Although usually its the same story of a woman crying for her drown children, her reasons and intentions tend to vary. The alternate Honduran version is the story of a beautiful married woman, who was abandoned by her husband. Now she roams near rivers, seducing men walking by. When the man gets too close, La Llorona changes into a horrible old lady, who drives him insane.

One of her popular cries is: "Toma mi teta, que soy tu nana" (Drink my tits, for i am your mother).

In Honduras she is known as La Sucia (The dirty woman) or Ciguanabana. This name is made up of Xihuatl (woman) and Nahuatl (Spirit): Spirit of a woman.

El Salvador

Stories of La Llorona from El Salvador are quite similar to those of Mexico, except that she was a young Pipil Indian who fell in love with a nobleman. He also loved her, but unfortunately he did not love her children and refused to marry her unless she got rid of them. Driven mad by her lust for the nobleman, she brought her children to a river and drowned them in a fit of hysteria. Upon realizing what she had done, she fled and stumbled, bashing her head against a rock. Hours passed and darkness fell and she regained consciousness. She attempted to make her way back to the town but she became lost and died in the woods. Some say that she haunts nearby rivers wailing "Donde estan mis hijos?" (Where are my children?). Other legends say that she enters homes quietly seeking crying children and stealing their souls in replacement for the ones she killed.


In Panama La Llorona is the most popular folktale of the country. The Panamanian version is called "La Tulivieja". According to the Panamanian legend, La Tulivieja was a beautiful young woman married to an important businessman. The couple had one little child. The husband prohibited his wife to go to parties and ordered her to stay home to care for their son. One weekend in a neighboring village there was to be a big party. The woman took advantage of the fact that her husband was away on business and decided to go to the party. She took the baby with her, but left him under a tree near a river. She thought that it was a safe place to leave the baby while she was dancing. That night a terrible storm hit the village. When she returned for her child the baby was not under the tree. She began crying and looking for him, following the river. God was angry with the woman for her irresponsibility and turned her into an ugly woman with holes in her face, chicken feet and a long hair that covered the front of her body. According to the legend she appears in the towns or cities that are near rivers. In the Panamanian countryside, many people who live near rivers insist they have heard the cry of "La Tulivieja". Also, in the capital there are also stories of people who claim to have seen the horrible woman, especially in the west.

Her legend is also important in Chile where the tale is as significant as those of the La Calchona, La Vuida and La Condena. The legend is well-known throughout Chile.

The different legends about La Llorona vary from being very similar to the Mexican versions to being very particular to Chilean folklore. Chilean version define the ghost as the spirit of a woman looking for her son, characterised as being a spirit with a special relation with the dead. In the most Chilean version La Llorona is called La Pucullén and is said to cry constantly for the son who died in her arms at an early age. She dresses in white and can only be seen by people about to die, those with special abilities (like the Machis or the kalkus) and animals with sharp senses such as dogs who howl pitifully in her presence.

She is the guide of the dead, who she guides with her footprints and cries along the path that takes the dead from their earthly dwelling to the Beyond. It is said that she cries like a hired mourner for the relatives of the deceased so that they can promptly recover from the loss. By this she prevents the spirit of the dead from appearing to torment them for their lack of tears and for not showing enough sorrow.

With her abundant tears, which form a crystal-clear pool, she indicates the spot in a cemetery where the grave should be dug and the coffin deposited. It is said that if they have put the grave in the right place they need to completely fill the grave with soil or one of the relatives of the deceased will die.

Other versions say that la llorona makes the hearts of those who listen to her laments shudder and that she hypnotizes men who wander around before dawn and spends the night with them to comfort her of the loss of her child.

In some tales it says that if you rub your eyes with the tears of a dog you can see her though you must have a firm heart or the image will be a horrific one.
