An informal secret network of blacks and whites provided food, clothing, shelter, and guidance for fugitive slaves. "Passengers," often guided by "conductors," traveled along routes that included "stations" or safe places. A station located in the woods near New Garden Meetinghouse connected Greensboro and Richmond, Indiana. Around 1819, assisted by Quaker Vestral Coffin and a slave named Sol, John Dimery was the first known passenger from Guilford County.
