Josiah Henson

Author Code: AJHX

Born: Jun. 15, 1789 - Port Tobacco, Charles County, Maryland, USA

Died: 1881 - Dresden, Ontario, Canada

Henson was born into slavery, and gradually accumulated enough funds to purchase his freedom, but was duped by unscrupulous masters. He eventually escaped to the North, first to Cincinnati and then into Canada. He began a successful career of preaching and assisted other slaves to escape bondage through the Underground Railway. He constructed a sawmill which was reasonably successful and led to his travelling to England on business. While there he preached and lectured and was a popular figure. Henson was the model used by Harriet Beecher Stowe for Tom in Uncle Tom's Cabin in 1851. Henson himself published Uncle Tom's Story of His Life: From 1789 to 1876 (1877).
