Many versions of La Llorona's origin exist. Here is a comparatively common version. Maria (la Llorona) thought she was very beautiful, so she wanted the handsomest man to marry. So she got what she wanted. Once they were married they had a boy and after that a girl. Last they had boy. Maria's husband started to work out of town for a month or so. He came to visit his children, but not his wife. He did not pay attention to her. Once Maria's husband came to visit them, but he came with a woman. He talked to his children and told them he was going to marry another woman. Maria was so mad that she got mad at her own children for no reason.
So That is when she took them to the river and drowned them. Then she realized what she had done and started to cry for her children and killed herself. Next morning a man from the village came with the story that he found Maria dead by the Riverbank. So the villagers buried her. In the very middle of the night they heard a woman crying for her children and That is when they found out it was Maria's ghost. People then started calling her ''la Llorona''.In my home town the ghost lady as some call her the ''woman in white''. The city of Marshall, Texas was a political and production center of the confederacy during the Civil War, and was a major railroad center of the t&p railroad from the late 19th century until the mid-20th century.
The city's large African American population and the presence of black institutions of higher learning made Marshall a center of the civil rights movement in the south. The city is known for holding one of the largest light festivals in the united states, the wonderland of lights, and, as the self-proclaimed pottery capital of the world, for it's sizable pottery Industry. But it is also known for the very real haunting of a ghost the locals call ''the crying lady in white''. ''the crying white lady ghost will lead you to the newly dead in Marshall, Texas. '' ''and she has been seen by many doing this for over 100 years! '' '' I personally know because I have witnessed her several times over the years.'' ... |
Lisa Lee harp Waugh this haunted woman's ghost is said to lead people to the spot where someone is dead. Usually that of murders or people who often just fall through the cracks. To see the white woman means to follow her. She is often seen or heard crying loudly. If you see her more then three times in a year it is said you might die the following year from unknown causes. Many real Marshall, Texas ghost stories usually always circulate cornering the ghost lady somehow.|
