When McCall was laid to rest, she was still wearing her very valuable wedding ring. Her husband tried to remove it, but was unable to because of the swelling. Hearing she was buried with such a valuable piece of jewelry, a pair of grave robbers set out to steal the ring from McCall's body the very next night.
However, they also had trouble getting the ring off her finger, so they decided to cut the finger off. As soon as they sliced into her hand, McCall woke up with a scream and the robbers fled.

Then, still in a sort of daze, McCall wandered home. She knocked on the door, and according to legend, when her husband saw her in her burial clothes, he dropped dead of shock.
