About Rachel Garrett

From Find A Grave Memorial # 16635235:

Rachel was active with her husband in the Underground Railroad movement, and their home was one of the stops on the way to freedom for hundreds of slaves. One technique used by the abolitionists to smuggle slaves to freedom, was to hide the women and children in a horse-drawn wagon with a fake bottom (example of such in Media section).
