Did you ever notice that all of the grade schools in Wauwatosa are named after Presidents except for Underwood (also Washington was renamed from Webster)? That is because the Underwood family started the first school in Wauwatosa.
The family tree is as follows:
2nd wife - Margaret Morgan, (b. 1800 Morgantown, Virginia d. 1897)
The First Baptist Church, lead by Rev. Enoch
Underwood, membership was strongly committed to abolitionism. On of their first
actions was to pass a resolution stating "American slavery is not only an
infringement of the rights of fellow man but a gross violation of the law of
God. Therefore we cannot fellowship with any who hold slaves, or uphold the
institution. Enoch Underwood and his wife Harriet used the closet of their home
to shelter fugitive slaves. One such slave was Caroline Quarrels who escaped
from St. Louis Missouri to Milwaukee via the Underground Railroad. She
eventually made her way into Canada where she lived as a free woman.
