Leesburg Questions Answered

I can now answer my questions from my earlier post about Glenfiddich:
  1. What's the timeline of ownership? Harrison>Owner X>LeHaye>Miles (current owner)
  2. We will be there during the anniversary of this alleged ghost's death. Will something happen? It did.
  3. Is there more than one? We don't believe so and the haunting's consistent.
  4. The young woman whose diary was found, how does she fit into everything? Virginia "Jenny" Miller was a houseguest of the Harrison's and was fond of Col. Burt, who was a guest of the Harrison's as well. She kept him company after he was brought back injured.
  5. The footsteps are regularly heard on Sundays. What's the significance? Actually, it doesn't match either the Battle or his death date as the 21st (in 1861) was a Saturday and the 24th, a Tuesday.

Except that I have a death day of the 26th--that's a Sunday. trishasplace3@aol.com

Thank you Trisha! Well then...that Sunday death date makes more sense in a way. Hmmm...

E.R. Burt was my gg grandfather & through Missi Brandewie we were able to stay at Glenfiddich for 5 days & in the same room that E.R. died in--but he did not come around or make any noise-that was last year & that Sunday was the exact 147th day of his death.
