Ghosts and Legends: The Gray Man and Hurricanes

October 1, 2018 - Posted in Culture by William Richardson

Plowden C.J. Weston went to England to be educated but returned to his beloved Pawleys Island, where he and his lovely English wife, Emily Esdaille Weston, built the Pelican Inn. He lived until almost the end of the Civil War, but died of tuberculosis in 1864. After his death, people began to see the Gray Man before every major hurricane.

Could the figure in the gray greatcoat be that of Plowden C.J. Weston, who loved Pawleys Island more than anyone else?
