Grey Island Cemetery has a white stone statue of a lady with a legend. Locals say those who close their eyes and walk around the statue three times will see the lady looking back at them and crying tears of blood. She is said to be the murdered wife of a man who was overcome with grief at her loss. After having the statue made, he set it in his back yard and spent hours talking to it every day. Years later, his body was found dead, curled up at its base.

  1. This is not the story I know of this statue. I grew up in Hillsborough and this is the story I was told and told to others as they went on Train excursions past the Grays Island.

    The marble statue is of a girl who died and her mourning father had it shipped here from Germany when he moved here. Her eyes were made of ruby. One evening, two robbers came to steal the rubies. They managed to get them out. It was late, around midnight. Something spooked them and they ended up walking around the statue backwards three times. The two robbers then disappeared never to be seen again. The story goes that if you go there at midnight and walk around the statue three times backwards, you will disappear.

    The fingers were also shot off at one point. Maybe those who did that disappeared too.

  2. The story I heard was that in the 1600’s (or 1800’s?), a man’s daughter was murdered so he had a statue made of her as her tombstone. She had ruby eyes and on her hand was a real diamond ring the man’s dead wife had given to the daughter, a wedding ring maybe? Then two grave robbers came and stole the rubies and broke the hand off to take the ring (since it was coated in cement or marble; whatever the statue is made out of). The two robbers were found dead but the rubies and ring were never found. Over the years, the statue has been known to haunt people that taunt it or do not believe. Her empty eyes were known to stare people down and cause them very bad luck. So someone broke the statue’s head off with a baseball bat. The legend continues.
