Yorba Cemetery. Yorba Cemetery - Ghost of the Pink Lady

Established in 1858 by Don Bernardo Yorba, the Yorba Cemetery is the oldest private burial ground in Orange County, California. It sits right in the middle of a modern housing tract, and is the last vestige of the Yorba's rather large Spanish land grant.

Legend has it on June 15th of even-numbered years -- between 12 AM and 4 AM -- the ghost of the "Pink Lady" appears to make her annual walk amongst the headstones of her ancestors. It is reputed to be the spirit of Alvina de Los Reyes, who was killed in a carriage accident in the early 1900s. Historical evidence seems to discredit this legend, as Mrs. Reyes in fact died of pneumonia. But legends are stubborn things...and who knows, maybe it's the ghost of another lost and wandering soul.
