Bagpiper, casket and vault peddler, Banjo Bob Cargo, noted that if I post this story, free bagpipe lessons. In 1899, classical actor Charles Coughlin, from Prince Edward Island, Canada, relocated to Galveston, against his family's wishes. Before pursuing his career he consulted a fortune teller, forewarning that he would die at the height of his fame in a southern city. The fortune teller said he would not rest-in-peace until he was returned to his place of birth. Performing with an acting troupe in Galveston, he collapsed, died and was buried. After the burial, the Hurricane of 1899 hit Galveston washing Charles' casket into the Gulf of Mexico. Caught up in the Loop Current, the casket moved along the Atlantic seaboard. More Monday.
