Quaker Genealogy Forum
Yes , I inquired to the Ohio Historical Society in regard to the work of Wilber Siebert and the three Mary C Thorne Women. They are checking into it and said they would contact me in a few weeks. In the 1890's Wilber Siebert documented histories of the underground railroad and those that participated. A Mary C Thorn wrote to him describing the workings of her families participation and unfortunatly those files are restricted reading. I went to the local Barnes and Noble bookstore awhile back and they had not one book on the Quakers- I was very surprised especially since the Quakers were such a big part of helping to fight for the freedom of slaves. So much important history of the Quakers is being lost to the newer non Quaker generation. I myself did not know of my Quaker ancestry until two years ago when I started researching my family, no one in my family knew of our Quaker Roots . I will continue to look and I will let you know what I find. Thank you for all of your replys and help
