Presented by: Byran Bush

 

Andrew Cowan was born in Ayrshire, Scotland on September 29, 1841. He migrated to the United States as a boy. Andrew was commissioned as a Union Lieutenant in the First New York Battery which became part of the Army of the Potomac. He was only 20 years old when he was promoted to full Colonel and fought in every major battle of the Eastern Theater, including Gettysburg, where he performed heroically. After the war he moved to Louisville and established a leather business which eventually made him very wealthy. He contributed to easing the antipathy between North and South by putting together the first Blue and Gray reunion at Gettysburg. He was also involved in the 1895 GAR reunion in Louisville and a Confederate reunion in Louisville. He was a board member of the Southern Exposition, and he helped raise funds for the pedestal on which the Statue of Liberty stands. He was the founder of the Louisville Park System and instrumental in establishing Cherokee Park. Bryan Bush has written a biography titled "Colonel Andrew Cowan: Union Soldier, Louisville Citizen, Peacemaker". Bush will be available for book signing following the program.

Delia Webster:  Conductor for the Underground Railroad

Delia Webster: Conductor for the Underground Railroad  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

Presented by: Nancy Stearns Theiss, PhD

 

There are many women in Kentucky history that should be recognized during women’s history month and a particular stand out, who may not be well known in school history books, is Delia Webster. Delia Webster was a conductor for the Underground Railroad (UGR) and risked her life many times as she persisted in assisting enslaved people in Kentucky to their  freedom. 
Delia was born December 17, 1817  in Vergennes, Vermont near a farm that was used to shelter travelers on the UGR. Vermont, by its own constitution of 1777, was the first state to prohibit slavery.  
She came to Kentucky in 1842 with the Spencers, a minister and wife from Oberlin College, to give painting classes. Delia’s first activities occurred in the Lexington area as a conductor when she partnered with a Reverend Calvin Fairbank, also from Oberlin, to help enslaved Lewis Hayden.
On Saturday, Sept. 28, 1844,Webster and Fairbank picked up the Hayden Family and carried them all the way to Maysville, Ky. where the enslaved family was then ferried to Rev. John Rankin at Ripley, Ohio.    As Webster and Hayden travelled back to Lexington they were arrested and indicted in the Fayette Circuit Court for “aiding and enticing slaves to leave their owners.”  Webster returned to New England for a brief period but came back to Kentucky in 1845 to continue UGR activities until she was forced to leave the area after several warnings.

Selected Records from Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land Warrant Application Files

Selected Records from Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land Warrant Application Files  (Workshop)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY
Presented by: Betty Darnell
In the “dark ages” we had to be content with “Selected Records from Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land Warrant Application Files,” available on microfilm in some libraries, or ordered from the National Archives. These files were “selected” as the most important records from the file. The entire files are now available on the internet, so you may need to check your ancestor’s file again. We’ll see some examples of some of the “less-important” records from the “non-select” portion of the files.
