Obituary Files in the Beaufort District Collection

Beaufort County South Carolina has a lot of ghost stories, some of which we’ve retold for this blog. Identifying the spirit can be problematic. For example, some people think that Private Frank Quigley (U.S. Army) is the possible ghost out near Fort Fremont on Land’s End. Our obituary files tell us more about him and the manner in which he ended up dead.
