  • Joseph M. Colquitt says:

    Is there anyone in the index whose names are William and Eliza Plummer? I have been trying to do research on my mother’s side o the family of whom traveled from Maryland to Canada during the 1800’s.

    • Mr. Colquitt, I am sorry to say that these names did not turn up in my research on this book. I wish you Godspeed and good luck in your search for information on them, but alas, I do not believe that I have any material that might be of assistance.

  • Mary Graham says:

    We live on seaside near Metomokin Island. We have a “ guest house” that has a “hidden “ cellar. I often think it could well have served as a hiding place for runaway slaves. But I do not see any references to a Virginia past way for salves?
    Mary Graham

    • Mary Graham–fascinating! I’m sorry to report that I do not know of any source that might help you uncover the secrets of that “hidden” cellar. In my experience, the things experienced and routes taken by folks trying to escape from that area is not well documented. Perhaps discoveries still await off in the future. We can hope, anyway …
