Sara Lucy Bagby Johnson(1833-1906) was the last known 'fugitive slave' in U.S. history. Lucy escaped via the Underground Railroad to PA then on to Cleveland, Ohio. Her owner, William Goshorn(WV), eventually located her, and she was returned under the provisions of the Fugitive Slave law. One can only imagine what she went through. She was eventually saved by a Union Captain around the time period of the execution of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. Exact date is unknown.
