<I>The News-Herald</I> reports that the belief stems from a two-engine train accident on Dec. 29, 1876. The crash was caused by a failed bridge. Once the train hit the bottom of the Ashtabula Gulf, it burst into flames.
The newspaper reports that this made it hard to identify corpses, causing 19 corpses and body parts to never be identified. The unidentified, however, were buried in a mass grave on Jan. 19, 1877.

The North East Ohio Ghost Research Team believes it has photographic, video and even audio evidence that there are ghosts at the cemetery.
One photograph, they believe, shows a phantom headstone. (see photo)
The team has even gone so far as to name the spirits, the newspaper reports.
Loretta Lynn is named for her long dark locks, and there's Crispy Critter, who shows up as a dark, smoky smudge in photographs.
