This Chilling North Carolina Urban Legend Will Leave You Baffled

In 1587, 117 men, women, and children arrived on the banks of Roanoke Island. The coastal colony soon became not just a village, but a home. As supplies began to run low, colonist John White decided to sail back to England and seek assistance.

Before he left for his journey, his granddaughter, Virginia Dare, was born – the first child born to English parents on American soil.
