- ALANSON BROCKETT (Chauncey, Abel, Moses, John, John) son of Chauncey and Anne Redlway Brockett was born in Oswego NY Feb 7 1802 and died March 1, 1872 In the spring of 1820 he accompanied his father upon his emigration to Ohio and resided at Farmington where he became a successful farmer.
Alanson was an ardent abolitionist a man of great force of character and was never turned from the path of duty by any circumstance of personal expediency. He was an earnest worker on the famous “underground railroad” by which so many slaves were aided in securing their freedom; a smoke house near his residence was regarded as a “station” of the historical railroad above mentioned. The last party of slave owners that visited that section in pursuit of slaves stopped all night at a hotel near by when their slaves were in concealment in the smoke house. During the night they were secreted in a swamp which could only be reached by a concealed path impossible for a party not acquainted to find. The presence of these slave owners exasperated the people and during the night the citizens including Mr Brockett cut off the manes and tails of their six horses and with tar pasted the following notice upon the horses:
“Ye hunters of negroes beware-
We’ve tar and we’ve feathers to spare
And if you don t clear out
A coat of a Tory you ll wear .”
He married Anna M Moffet Jan 12 1826 who was born Feb 17 1809 and had 14 children He married second Almira Le Griffith March 25 1860 she was born April 8 1801.
