Historical reference from Oswego and Oswego County(starting at page 9): http://visitoswegocounty.com/wp-cont...ideFNL_web.pdf


A street view of #2 and #3 for Oswego city Underground Railroad sites: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.4562...7i13312!8i6656


Where city of Oswego site #1 was located: https://www.google.com/maps/place/13...35!4d-76.52098
Their son, which has been mentioned on here before: Grant, George Franklin (1847-1910) | The Black Past: Remembered and Reclaimed
https://www.pga.com/pga-of-america/g...f-tee-inventor
https://aaregistry.org/story/golf-tee-patented/


For #18 for Oswego, this is a street view of a monument in Downtown Syracuse related to that event: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.0507...7i13312!8i6656


Related to Oswego County site #23: Washington, George B., has had an experience having but few parallels in the
[SIZE=-1]history of any country. Born a slave in the State of Virginia about 1850, very little[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]can be said of his ancestry. This, however, can be demonstrated beyond doubt, that[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]his mother and grandmother were both brought from Africa, and that owing to the[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]fact of their being less tractable than those usually brought over, they were both con-[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]fined in a box during the entire voyage. The birthplace of George was in Mecklenburg[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]county, Va., and he remembers perfectly having been sold once before being[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]liberated in 1865. At the time of the surrender of Lee he was with United States[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]troops and. was at Appomattox Court House and the famous apple tree when. Lee[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]finally surrendered. After the close of the war, being then a boy of about fifteen[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]without any education, money or friends, he came north and took up his residence[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]first in Pulaski. He then went to Mansville and attended a common school eight[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]weeks, when he began working for a hardware firm and. began handling bar iron,[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]which was marked with size, length, etc., and he being forced to read those marks,[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]determined to apply himself and in this way secured the rudiments of a good business[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]education. After practicing the utmost economy for twelve years, he came to Pulaski[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]and engaged in the grocery business for himself, having now one of the leading stores[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]in Pulaski as well as some of the most desirable property in the village. In 1881 he[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]married Lucretia E. Bakeman of South Onondaga, and their children are Grace L.,[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]born July 29, 1883; George W-, born February 10, "1885. Mr. Washington secured, a[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]piece of the root of the famous apple tree above noted, which he sold for $20.[/SIZE]
https://www.newyorkroots.org/oswego/...amsketch5.html (There was a picture floating around of their son in a Football team picture for Pulaski HS from 1906). I believe that the family left the community not too long after with family members eventually settling in Southern California.
