Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Laura Smith Haviland (December 20, 1808- April 20, 1898) was an American abolitionist, suffragette, and social reformer. She was an important figure in the history of the Underground Railroad. Laura Smith Haviland was born on December 20, 1808, in Kitley Township, Ontario, Canada to American parents, Daniel Smith and Asenath "Sene" Blancher, who had immigrated shortly before her birth. Haviland wrote that Daniel was ''a man of ability and influence, of clear perceptions, and strong reasoning powers, ''while her mother Sene was ''of a gentler turn, ...a quiet spirit, benevolent and kind to all, and much beloved by all who knew her.''The Smiths, farmers of modest means, were devout members of the Society of Friends, better known as Quakers. Haviland's father was a minister in the Society and her mother was an Elder.show more
