A family's ties to the Underground Railroad
A talk on a black family’s history and their involvement in the Underground Railroad will be held Sunday, March 18, at 2 p.m. at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth. The program is sponsored by the Historical Society of Old Yarmouth.
Samuel C. Still III will tell the stories of William Still, who died in 1902 and was called the “Father of the Underground Railroad,” and other family members who rose from slavery to prominence in New Jersey, one as a doctor. Samuel Still has been relating and studying his family history since he was 13.
