Please note that these 60 individuals below were identified in contemporary news reports and other historical documents as being involved in underground efforts to assist freedom seekers from Missouri.  For the wartime period, these figures also include Union army officers identified as shielding freedom seekers from loyal enslavers. Further research is required to fully verify the identities of these various figures (especially the members of the antebellum Underground Railroad network) and the extent of their actual involvement in supporting escapes from slavery.
