Re: Ancestors of Harriet Tubman

Sounds like a wonderful trip! Tubman's home in St. Catharines is no longer standing, but the church across the street from her former home still stands - the BME Church known as Salem Chapel, built circa 1855. I would also suggest visiting the St. Catharine's Museum located along the Welland Canal. They have an exhibit featuring Harriet Tubman, the Underground Railroad, and the African American Community in that area.

There is no documented evidence that Tubman was sheltered at the Michigan St. Baptist Church, but it is an amazing and important historic site. Niagara Falls is incredible. While the original bridge that she crossed no longer exists, the Rainbow Bridge, I believe, is the next best thing. Read the passage again about Joe Bailey's flight to freedom with Tubman, crossing the bridge over the falls, and Tubmans' response to a very frightened Joe. When you see th falls you will get a whole new appreciation of that passage and Tubman's words.

Many of Tubman's friends and relatives in lived in St. Catharines - some rigth near her in about a two block radius around North Street. John Brown met with Tubman in her home on North Street in 1858.

It is good to remember all the ancestors, not just Tubman! Enjoy your trip!
