Ghost Stories Wanted

Do you have any family ghost stories that have been passed down? If you do I would like to add them to the family tree! Here is the one for Ebenezer Halladay: The story goes that Ebenezer Halladay was heart broken when his first wife died at the age of 30. He refused to marry another, but with all the children to take care of he didn't know what he would do. Then one night the ghost of Jane appeared to him, her face half in shadow, and told him he must marry again. She then turned her head to reveal the other half of her face, but instead of Jane's face, Ebenezer saw the face of a woman he had never seen before. She said that it was this woman who Ebenezer should marry. Later in the year, Ebenezer was traveling, selling grain elsewhere in Ontario and he stopped for the night at an Inn. When Parthenia Olds, the daughter of the innkeeper, came to serve him he recognized the face that Jane had shown him. He asked her to marry him. She said yes. - recv'd from Katherine Bredbeck, 8/20/95

Leslie HALLADAY, 1888-1956

This is a headstone in Pine Hill Cemetery, Delta, Leeds, Ontario, Canada. I do not know who his parents were as the dates do not match. I have a Leslie Halladay with no dates, the son of Irving James Halladay and Irene Dixon. I have no dates for them either. Any help connecting this headstone with the right person will help. Thanks
