1868:

In 1868, on Nov. 6 at 10 p.m. a strange thing happened in Mussorie, Italy. A Colonel and his family were staying in a room and the young daughter was brushing her hair in the mirror. Innocent enough until she saw one of the family friends, man known as Colonel B. who lived exactly 80 miles from their home.

According to the girl, he was saying goodbye to her. She also could described exactly what his appearance and clothes looked like, which terrified family.
