THE LEGEND OF MARGORIE McCALL ($175,000 – $187,000)

In 1705, in Lurgan, Ireland, a woman named Margorie McCall took ill and died.

Uncertain of what had led to her untimely demise, and how contagious it was, Margorie was swiftly buried!

Word quickly spread that due to swelling, her husband was unable to remove a ring from his wife’s hand.

The next evening, two unscrupulous grave-robbers, shovels in hand, entered the gates of Shankill Cemetery.

They located Margorie’s grave and got to work.

Digging away, they eventually opened the casket and feverishly tried to pry the ring from Margorie’s finger.

It soon became clear, the only way to remove the ring was to cut her finger off! As they drew ‘first blood’, Margorie awoke from her coma, sat up and let out a blood-curdling scream!

The terrified duo fled as a bewildered Margorie climbed out of the hole – and headed for home.

When her husband, John heard a knock at the door, he turned to his children and said, “If your mother were still alive, I’d swear that was her knock.”

As he opened the door, he found his wife, dressed in her burial clothes – fresh blood dripping from her finger.

John suffered an instant heart attack and dropped dead on the spot.

He was buried in the exact plot Margorie had just vacated!
