Report by Utah State University folklore student Maryann Freeman, who collected information from Jean Beaulieu. A ship captain's wife watches from the roof of her home as her husband's ship tries to make harbor during a storm. The ship is dashed against the rocks and the woman throws herself from the roof. Now on stormy nights a glowing shape can be seen outshining the lighthouse and remains visible until ships arrive safely in Salem harbor.
