Abstract (Document Summary)

Raynham Hall in Oyster Bay, a museum with a wealth of Revolutionary War history and more than its share of reported spirits. It is purportedly haunted by a variety of servants and other spirits, but most especially by Sally Townsend, the Townsend family's teenage daughter who had a secret romance with Lt. Col. John Simcoe of the British Army. She never married and waited, in vain, for Simcoe to return after the war.
