That's really interesting! Was Mr. Stanton involved with the Underground Railroad in Ohio?
Family history I just became aware of. According to the article I linked to, I wouldn't be surprised if that was true. It's still hard to register the connection, while they weren't slave-owners my direct kin were simple (and in some cases poor) dirt-farmers from East Tennessee & Western North Carolina. Most were Confederate in their sympathies, but a good number of them were Union.
