William Ellis & Fannie Howard lived where Dajio's restaurant is today. William's father, Enoch Ellis Howard, was the island lighthouse keeper. William died in 1933. Fannie died seven years later. During that interval she kept her casket in the parlor, propped up on two straight-backed chairs. Join us for our "Around Creek" Ghost & History Walking Tour during the summer months to hear the entire story.
