Re: Piatt of Ohio
In Response To: Re: Piatt of Ohio ()

As a current employee, and someone who has completed extensive research about the Piatt jocko,I support the theory that Elizabeth Piatt was not a conductor on the URR. The jocko we have is a New Bremen cast iron jocko. These were made between 1890-1930. Seiberts information is not backed up by any primary sources that we have in our archives. The story about Judge Piatt returning runaway slaves to relatives in KY is true and documented.
