“Delia Ann Webster, Underground Railroad Conductor”
Tuesday, June 11
“Delia Ann Webster, Underground Railroad Conductor”  (Program)
1:00 pm
In Person - at the corner of 1000 S. Hurstbourne Pkwy and Linn Station Rd.
 
Presented by:  Terry Chambers
 
Delia Ann Webster was the first white woman to be incarcerated in the Kentucky State Penitentiary for her part in aiding the enslaved Lewis Hayden family in their escape to Canada in 1844. She and Rev. Calvin Fairbank made national headlines when they were convicted in Lexington, Ky, for "stealing" slaves. Upon release Delia continued her mission as Freedom Seeker on her 600 acre farm in Trimble County although she was jailed several more times and banished from her beloved homestead. In an era when women were expected to be pious, submissive and domestic, she fought for the rights and freedom of enslaved persons in the antebellum South. Hers is a story worth honoring.
 
Terry Chambers both entertains and educates. She is an LGS member and author of the book Rose Island, An Almost Accurate Account of Days Gone By. She presented a program on this topic to us in the past. She is an ever-busy lady having garnered an extensive business and legal background spanning a thirty-five-year career. Playing a lead role in both the business and social scene of her community, she maintains a leadership position in the Prospect-Goshen Rotary Club, Prospect Chamber of Commerce, Louisville Sail and Power Squadron, and Prospect Code Enforcement Board, among others. Additionally, Terry is founder/director/actor of the Prospect Area Play Readers community theater. She also has a close relationship with The Oldham County History Center. Never afraid of coloring outside the lines, Terry is affectionately referred to as Miss Bossy Pants, and known as someone who will take the lead and get things done.
