Ca. 1797 - Nov. 26, 1883? ? ? ? ? Famous slave of Ulster County, born in Hurley, N.Y. Though illiterate, this woman of indomitable character and intellect left her indelible mark as an eloquent condemner of slavery, from this court. By winning her lawsuit - the first ever won by a black parent - she saved her son from slavery in Alabama. A staunch abolitionist and a fervent champion of human rights, she met President Lincoln and subsequently served as advisor at Freedom Village in Virginia. Her own words explain her triumph: "I talk to God and God talks to me."
