Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Hicks Bustill (1816-1890) was a plasterer, abolitionist and conductor in the Underground Railroad before the American Civil War. Charles was born in 1816 in Philadelphia to David Bustill (1787-1866) and Mary Hicks. He had two younger brothers: James M. Bustill (1820-after 1880) who married Lydia A. X (1824-?); and Joseph Cassey Bustill (1822-1895), who also became a conductor in the Underground Railroad. Bustill learned the trade of plasterer. David Bustill was born free as the mixed-race son of Elizabeth Morrey (1745-1827) and Cyrus Bustill (1732-1806) (born in Springfield Township, Burlington County, New Jersey). He was of Anglo-American, African and Lenape ancestry. His parents married on August 6, 1773 in Christ Church, Philadelphia. As his mother was of English-Lenape ancestry, she was free, and their children were born free.
