The Mistletoe Bride (1823)
 A story of a newly married couple married in a large farmhouse where she grew up. After the wedding the guests played a game of hide and seek where the groom was. The bride wanting to win, went into the manor house, ran up to the attic, found an old trunk and hid in it. Nobody could find her including her husband who just figured she grew tired and went to sleep. After everyone went home, he began looking for her but couldn’t find her anywhere. She was never found until a few years later when her mother died. The woman’s father was looking through his wife’s things collecting dust in the attic when he found an old chest. The lid was closed and the old lock was rusted shut. Eventually, he opened the lid and was terrified to see his daughter’s corpse there in the chest. When she hid there, the lid had closed and the rusty parts of the lock had latched together, trapping her inside. She suffocated to death. This story appeared in a poem Ginevra by Samuel Rogers. Then there was a short story Ginevra or The old Oak Chest in 1835. It was also turned into a popular song The Mistletoe Bough around that time. It also inspired Henry James to wrote his story The Romance of Certain Old Clothes.
