Since we are in the Yuletide now, the subject of the White Women has come up among many people in Urglaawe.
Jacob Grimm discusses the White Women often in Teutonic Mythology, and I began to wonder if there were referenece to these spiritual entities here in Pennsylvania.
Of course, I was already aware of places that are sacred to Holle, such as Hexenkopf, which means that yes, the White Women do have a presence here.
I asked around a bit, and came across "ghost stories," such as one from Montgomery County about a White Woman who appears in the Jarrettown Inn (see Montgomery County Ghost Stories by Charles Adams, III). I am not certain that I can say these sorts of manifestations are the same as the goddess of yore appearing to the people. However, I can also not say that the White Women of Jarrettown is not a goddess.
I also heard an interesting story from an elderly lady from the Orwigsburg area. In her tale, there is a spirit who appears at Deer Lake up in Schuylkill County. The spirit comes to the lake, dips her hand into it, and then seems to dampen her hair with the water. She then appears to comb or brush her long hair, and then she disappears.
I mentioned this story at market to a man by the name of Heckman from the Shoemakersville area. He said that he has heard that tale with some slight differences. Instead of it happening at Deer Lake, he said it happens over at Lake Ontelaunee. He also says that the White Woman does not dip her hand into the water. Instead, she first puts her hair up above her head, then walks into the water as if to bathe. Then, while she is under the water from the neck down, she disappears.
I am very much curious to learn more, but these tales, if true, do support the idea that the White Women visit our area outside of the known areas of Holle.
