St. Phillips Graveyard

Even though St. Phillips church hangs a sign that reads, “The only ghost here is the Holy Ghost,” others believe the ghost of Sue Howard, a woman who died shortly after giving birth to a stillborn baby, haunts this graveyard in the Holy City. The apparition is said to haunt pregnant women and women who have had miscarriages who pass by. An amateur photograph from 1987 even captured the ghost mourning over a grave.
