Forbidden Fruit: Love Stories from the Underground Railroad by Betty DeRamus

Character description

Angeline Palmer was an orphaned free-black child in Amherst, Massachusetts.   She was indentured to the Shaw family.   In 1840, she learned that they were plotting to take her to Georgia and sell her as a slave.   She appealed to her half-brother Lewis B. Frazier, and he and two friends spirited her to Colrain, Vermont.   The Shaws sued, and the three men spent three months in prison, but refused to reveal Angeline's location.   She remained in Colrain the rest of her life  and married Sanford C. Jackson.   She died in the 1850s.
