Why is this called Northup trail? Is it referencing Solomon Northup? Please let me know, thank you.
Not my Photo but yes, the Northrup Trail was in reference to Solomon Northrup. He was a slave of Edwin Epps, who lived not far from this location in Holmesville, LA. The Northrup Trail
stopped at places mentioned in his book "Twelve Years A Slave". I have a photograph of the Edwin Epps house uploaded here.
This was the home of Mary McCoy.
Mary McCoy is my 3X Great Grandmother.
