Mary Wells was the Weeping Lady of Sleepy Hollow and the former lover of Ichabod Crane. After confronting Katrina Crane out of jealously and accidently plummeting to her death, she became a vengeful spirit that would haunt the site of her demise for more than two centuries.



Mary was Ichabod Crane's former fiancee. She came to take Ichabod back to England. She was very emotional and possessive. Mary disliked Katrina Crane upon their meeting because she thought that Katrina was trying to steal Ichabod, despite her being engaged to Abraham Van Brunt. Mary confronted Katrina about her seduction of Ichabod Crane before she left. When she was going to attack Katrina, she fell to her death off a cliff near the river. Her ghost, also known as The Weeping Lady, would haunt Sleepy Hollow for over 200 years after her death.
