One Response to “Alice – Story Credits”


Will Stackhouse:

Hi Cathy,
My name is Will Stackhouse and in reading your story on Alice Flagg I ran across a piece of information that I amd others had been searching for for many years. The Hermitage where Alice lived was until their death in the possession of the now late Clarke and Lillian Willcox. I used to visit the Hermitage and All Saints Waccamaw from my late teens until their death. Many afternoons I sat on the porch with Mr. Willcox and relived the days of Alice’s dreams and tragedies. Both Mr. Willcox and I have wondered about the name of Alice’s fiance with no luck. I read yhe post today and discovered that his name is John Braddock. Could you tell me where and how you came across that name so that I could veriy that for my story tellling and if I ever started writing about Alice and other ghost of Murrells Inlet? I would also like to give credit where credit is due. If you could provide me with information leading to that link I would appreciate it.

Sincerely,
Will
