Susan (b. circa 1828 - d. ?)
MSA SC 5496-1306
Fled from slavery, Prince George's County, Maryland, 1851
On February 16, 1851 three women enslaved by George W. Graham fled his Upper Marlboro plantation. Two of the women, Susan, twenty-three, and Jenny, fifteen, were sisters. Their father and aunt lived in Washington, D.C. With the sisters ran a friend, Mary Anne, who also had relatives in Washington, D.C., and even some in New York City. While their destination is unclear, they likely headed to family members for aid.
