A ghostly visit from a best friend

Andrew's grave at Calvary Cemetery, Pittsburgh


Can the bonds of friendship remain unbroken even after death? Apparently, they can. On the day before Thanksgiving in 1909, two best friends from the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Mt. Washington fell ill, Andrew Mulholland with pneumonia and the Bill Ferris with tuberculosis. Shortly before he died, Andrew informed his mother that he had been visited by the ghost of Bill Ferris, who, unbeknownst to everyone, had died just two hours earlier. The strange incident was reported by the Pittsburgh Press on January 14, 1910.
