A "Station Master" for the underground railroad working in Philadelphia, Pa.

He worked hand in hand with Thomas Garrett of Delaware to provide free passage of black slaves to their own freedom in the northern states.

Still kept meticulous records of slaves' experiences, and was often able to reunite entire families in the free states.

His records have provided a great resource to this period of United State History.
