Susan Robbins Garrison

Caesar Robbin’s daughter
c.1780 – 1841, ~61 yrs

Susan Robbins Garrison, daughter of Caesar and Cate Boaz Robbins, was a supporter of many human rights causes. Susan and her husband Jack Garrison, who was enslaved while living in New Jersey, occupied the east end of the house. The Garrisons lived there from 1823/4 to 1837. As many as four of their children may have lived with them in their half of the house. Susan Garrison was a founding member of the Concord Female Antislavery Society in 1837, and its only black member. On at least one occasion, the group met in her home.
