Taylor family group

Otho (or Otto) Taylor fled enslavement in Clear Spring, Maryland on March 23, 1856. He fled with his wife and children, as well as his brother Owen and his family, and his brother Benjamin. This group had arrived safely in Canada by late May 1856, but Otho returned to the U. S. in March 1857 to rescue a second group of two enslaved men and one woman.
