Apparently none of the data you have includes any sort of documentation to prove it, which is what you need. Personally, if I were you, I'd find newspaper obits on at least one of these women....those would give their husband's names and I imagine include something about the underground RR,if she played a big part in it. I don't know when they died so can't tell if death certificates are a possibility, but I'm sure their children would have death certificates on record, and those should give the name of both their parents, where they were born, etc.
