About the Author
Laura Smith Haviland (1808 - 1898)
Laura Smith Haviland was one of the most important women in the history of the Underground Railroad. She helped guide thousands of fugitives to freedom. She wrote:
"It is due to my parents to say, if I have been instrumental, through the grace of God, to bless his poor and lowly of earth, by adapting means to ends in relieving suffering humanity, it is largely owing to their influence."
Laura Smith Haviland was born on December 20, 1808 in Kitley Township, Ontario. Her parents were Daniel Smith (1785-1845), an approved minister in the Society of Friends, and Sene Blancher Smith (1787-1845). She grew up in the Society of Friends, also known as Quakers. In 1815, they moved to Cambria, Niagara County, in western New York state. (Quote from wikipedia.org)
