Tillinghast, Sarah

Sarah Tillinghast, a victim of Consumption (Tuberculosis), was a suspected Vampire in Exeter, Rhode Island. In 1799, her father Stuckeley Tillinghast had her corpse dug up and her heart burnt after several of her siblings died. Sarah's siblings reportedly complained that their deceased sister was returning to them at night and pressing on their chests, preventing them from breathing.
