"Wade in the water, children!" Only nine miles down river from the famed Underground Railroad terminal, Ripley, Ohio, Maysville, KY was at the end of a widely traveled Kentucky turnpike during the antebellum period and a major crossing point for runaway slaves. Maysville was the crossing point for several daring exploits conducted by Ripley slave rescuer, John Parker. It was also where Calvin Fairbank and Delia Webster crossed into Ohio with runaway Lewis Hayden and his family.
