A Wiltshire Ghost 1895

Strange Company: Newspaper Clipping of the Day






ELECTRIC HUMAN EMANATIONS

In 1895, young Jeannie Morgan of Sedalia, Mo., shook hands with Dr. ********, knocking him unconscious to the floor. Jeannie's body had begun to emit high-voltage electricity on her 14th birthday. Sparks flew from her fingertips when she reached for the metal water pump handle. Her cat avoided her. Eventually, the phenomenon faded.

Helena Independent (Montana) June 7, 1878

A MISSISSIPPI MYSTERY

An old row boat floated down the Mississippi with a human skeleton in it.
A negro fisherman discovered the water-beaten craft with its cargo of bleached bones, those of Julie LeBlanc, who disappeared from her home in Jefferson County, Missouri, six years ago.

Julie had many lovers, being very pretty and vivacious, some of them may have been attracted to the fact that her father, Francis LeBlanc, had held some title of nobility in France.

One evening she dressed for a party in the neighborhood and went into the garden to get some flowers for her hair. She did not return and her parents supposed she had gone to the party, but in the morning, continued absence alarmed them. She had not been seen at the social gathering.

The woods for miles around had been thoroughly searched and footprints of a man and girl were found leading to a creek where a boat had been kept. The boat was gone. One of her lovers was missing also, and another went away soon after.

These two young men had been rivals for her favor. No trace of them has ever been discovered. The finding of her skeleton indicates that she was murdered.
A conjecture is that the two lovers fought over her, and that she and one of them was killed by the young man who disappeared after the tragedy.



After 6 years that little boat came out of its hiding place.

Wonder how they ascertained that it was Julie's bones in the boat. DNA technology wasn't a thing in the 1800s.

I wondered that too.
Maybe there were shoes or pieces of clothing in the boat.

Fair Play (Ste. Genevieve, Mo.) July 9, 1892

A STRANGE CASE

Jesse Messer, reported lynched last August in Lafayette County for bank robbery, has appeared at his home in Pettis County.
Messer's supposed remains were disinterred, positively identified by his wife and father-in-law, and again buried.

Messer's reappearance has created a great sensation. He says he went to Saline County where he secured work on a farm, and has been engaged there continuously since.
He had read in the newspapers that he had been lynched, and it is said he enjoyed a good laugh over it, but did not deem the matter of sufficient importance to apprise his relatives to the contrary.
The great mystery now is, who was the man that was lynched ?
