WOODLAWN CEMETERY, DAYTON, OHIO However, by night Woodlawn Cemetery takes on a much creepier feel. Many witnesses have reported a female spirit who is usually described as wearing a red shirt and jeans, with a blue sweater around her wait. She is said to wander forlornly through the trees. Other spirits that are seen here include a young boy and his dog. They are said to have drowned in the canal after the boy fell in and his dog attempted to rescue him. Many people are so touched by the tale that they leave trinkets at his memorial and some say they have heard the boy sobbing and his dog whining!
