In Response To: Re: Ancestors of Harriet TubmanURGENT! ()
As far as anyone knows, Harriet Tubman had no children. Somewhere along the long line of children's fictionalized biographies published in the last fifty years, the notion that Tubman had children, who were sold away from her, took root and became part of Tubman's history. It is false. Her siblings had many children and grandchilren, some of whom she probably helped raise, and some of whom she did help rescue from slavery.
