The Legend of Mercy Brown by KerriAnnCrau
The Legend of Mercy Brown
   Mercy Brown lived in Exeter, Rhode Island. Her mother Mary and sister Mary Olive died of consumption (Tuberculosis) in 1888. Her brother, Edwin became sick in 1890 with the disease. In 1981 Mercy contracted the disease and died in 1892.

It was believed by friends and neighbors that one of the dead family members was a vampire that was the cause of Edwins illness. At this time in history Consumption was misunderstood and folklore and fear fueled the belief that the undead were the cause of the illness. Mercys father, George, gave permission for several of his family members bodies to be exhumed.

Villagers and the local doctor exhumed the bodies in March 1892. Both the mother, Mary, and Mary Olive were decomposing, Mercy was in relatively good condition. She also still had blood in her heart. This was believed to mean Mercy was one of the "undead" and causing the illness in Edwin. Mercys heart was removed from her body, burned and the ashes mixed with water for Edwin to drink. This was suppose to be a cure for Edwins illness caused by the undead. Unfortunately for Edwin he died two months later.

This looks nothing like the real grave. Because of the legend the real grave has been stolen and recovered to then be bolted down. Rather sad people will go to that extent. Her grave is said to be haunted with glowing green orbs seen at night.

The true stone. (Picture is mine from my instagram account @hauntedinautumn)

My DeviantART story....

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 2:48 PM


My DeviantART story started over ten years ago! I originally started out on elfwood, but then found DA and quickly became addicted to the site! It is the only site I have constantly visited for that span of time. I can't even remember my original account on DA, but this account is ten years old.

I was in school for art and just starting out on this account on DA when my health issues started. Art and this website were my distraction through hospital stays, sickness and tests after tests. I will forever have health issues and art still is my escape. Sometimes that means just going through what everyone else creates because I am not up to creating something myself.

Happy Birthday DA! I may go through spans of silence but I am always watching all the wonderful artwork.
