Summary

An expectant mother sees a shroud and has a white-haired baby.

A young girl who was expecting a baby was coming home on a lonely road. A tree had fallen, and amongst the roots there was a shroud with stockings and gloves pinned to it. She ran away, and when she looked back she saw it beckoning to her. When her baby was born, he was as white as snow.

This is a true story. Bella Higgins knew the baby as an adult. He died in his thirties.
