Friends of Emancipation

In looking back at Newspapers.com for references to the Holsclaw family, I stumbled on this gem from 19 April 1849. Enoch Holsclaw and his father Benjamin appear on a list of delegates to a constitutional convention in support of removing slavery from the Kentucky Constitution. The article is titled Emancipation Meeting at Taylorsville, and appeared in the Louisville Courier.
Louisville Courier, 19 Apr 1849
