The Ghosts Of the Widows

The widows were women who frequented the cliff in Collinsport, Maine in the early 19th century, looking out to sea for their husbands to return. The cliff was named Widows' Hill because of their presence (12).

When Jeremiah Collins decided to build his mansion Collinwood on the hill, he sent the widows home, telling them to keep their grief to themselves. Some folk in town claimed that the widows never left the hill and that their ghosts still haunted the cliff 150 years later (12).

The widows names are revealed as Rachel Comstock, Abigail Tolliver, and Margaret Findley (266).

A 4th widow is unidentified but appears alongside the 3 widows and the ghost of Bill Malloy when they confront Matthew Morgan. (126)
