For anyone who might be interested in a little publicized Historical part of Southeastern Indiana. Next Saturday September 15th from 10:00 - 4:00 they are having "a gathering" at Eleutherian College which is Located in Lancaster in Northern Jefferson County-this area was known as a main stop on the underground railroad and for being a community with heavy Anti-Slavery activities. Some people will give talks on their ancestors who were among the members of the Neil's Creek Anti-Slavery society. The Eleutherian College was founded in 1848 and will be open and displays set up for visitors to see. I have been asked to bring down my research on some of the area families and on doing research on line. I am also taking some family heirlooms such as my GGG Grandfathers gun he carried when he was in the Indiana Legion and was involved in
defending the area during Morgan's Raid. Lancaster is on IN 250 just off Hwy 7 between North Vernon and Madison. It is just over the Jennings County line in Jefferson County.
I have a list surnames of those who were involved in the Anti-Slavery Society. Contact me if you are interested in those.
