[quote ]"Burris, Samuel D. (1808-c. 1869), antislavery activist and conductor on the Underground Railroad, was born in Kent County, Delaware. Little is known of his early years except that his mother was a free woman of color, but as a young adult he moved to the Philadelphia area, became a farmer, married, and started a family. (No information about his wife and children is available.)"
