About Soph Ross

Soph was one of the sisters of Harriet Tubman.

When Harriet Tubman fled to freedom in the late fall of 1849, after Edward Brodess died at the age of 48, she was determined to return to the Eastern Shore of Maryland to bring away her family. It would take her over 10 years, and she would not be entirely successful. Linah, Soph and Mariah Ritty had been sold to the Deep South some years before, making their rescue impossible and their fates unknown. (1)
