Re: Harveysburg, Ohio's First Black School
In Response To: Harveysburg, Ohio's First Black School ()
I'm Karen Campbell, the Genealogy Librarian at The Mary L. Cook Public Library. We have quite a bit of information about the Black School in Harveysburg up on our website and on our "Harveysburg on Caesar's Creek blog at: http://harveysburg.blogspot.com/. There is a lot of information about Dr. Jesse Harvey and his wife Elizabeth Burgess Harvey who founded the Black School in 1831 and then Dr. Jesse founded the Harveysburg Academy in 1836-37.
I would also like to mention that we are hosting a conference at the end of April 2007: Anti-Slavery/UGRR ~ Taking a Risk for Freedom at our library and at Wilmington College, Wilmington, Ohio. Schedules and registration materials can be found on our site at:
