John Hunn
Birth: Jun. 25, 1818
Death: Jul. 6, 1894

Abolitionist. Chief Engineer of the Underground Railroad in the state of Delaware during the mid-1800s. Along with Delaware Station Master Thomas Garrett, was responsible for the freedom of thousands of those held in slavery. Was convicted and fined twice for his activities but continued to provide safe haven and escape for slaves on their road to freedom. All of his land and property were later confiscated but he continued on his quest in spite of his family becoming destitute. His son, John Hunn, later served as Delaware's 53rd Governor from 1901 through 1905. (bio by: Russ Pickett)
