Yesterday’s answer:
B   Her sisters in England
From the life of Ruth Wyllie Keysor:   The family afterwards moved to Manchester, England, and later to Liverpool, whence they sailed for America on a sailing vessel. On the voyage Ruth took sick, and when about three days out from Liverpool, according to her own statement, her spirit left her body and visited two of her sisters who had been left in England. These two sisters desired to have her spirit remain with them, but she refused to stay, telling the sisters that if she did so her body would be thrown overboard. The next morning each of the two sisters set out in search of the other [Ruth], in order to recount the experience of the night, and met each other on the way.
