William H.H. Johnson

William H.H. Johnson (1839–1905) was born in Madison, Indiana, the son of a fugitive slave mother and a free father. According to the Fugitive Slave Act, his parentage made Johnson a slave himself, despite that he was born in a free state. When his mother’s former owners appeared to be on their trail, Johnson’s family themselves escaped to Windsor, Ontario, where Johnson lived before moving to BC.
