Celebrate Black History Month with some African American family histories from Niagara Falls. This is from my column on Oakwood Cemetery’s website.
Hopefully I can share another one of Oakwood’s remarkable African American family stories before the month is over.

This story was particularly exciting for Pete and I as our trail uncovering this family story led us to Thomas Jefferson, Monticello and the White House!
Read the link below and learn how some very brave individuals worked secretly to bring about an end to slavery.
