This grave site in the Unionville Cemetary was used as a hiding place for the slaves as they moved through the Underground Railroad. There are hundreds of locations in Chester County as it was a major thoroughfare to the Northern states. The top marble piece would be removed and any number of slaves and their children would be lying inside until it was safe to pass.
