Emily’s ghost roams the rail station, crying and searching for her elusive lover.
Emily was with child when Jonathan left, but he did not know; she kept it hidden as long as possible. After three excruciating days of a difficult labor, death consumed her, taking the baby with her.
Anne Marie, Emily’s friend, tried finding Jonathan to tell him, but her letters were continually returned.
Emily and her baby are buried in the city’s Pauper Graveyard with only a small unassuming stone.

Died September 12, 1887
