Polly Farris bought a lamp 45 years ago from an auction in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area. “I was drawn to it. I don’t know why,” she said at her Ocean Isle Beach home while her husband laughed. “I know I’ll never get rid of it or sell it. It’s ours forever.” Shortly before she bought the lamp doctors had said their newborn daughter would only live a few months. Her daughter, Julia, is 45 years old and lives with her parents. “I think she attached herself to Julia,” Farris said of the lamp. Since they’ve had the lamp, at various Carolina homes, they have heard unexplained noises, footsteps and giggles.Farris said she’s seen a figure but it’s been just in the corner of her sight. She’s felt a gentle brush against her cheek. “She, I haven’t named her, is a playful, nice, young lady.,” she said. “We just don’t know who she is or where the lamp came from.” Farris said she’d called the auctioneer and there was no record of who donated the lamp for sale.
