Archaeologists say they’ve found the site of home where Ben Ross, the father of famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman, once lived in Maryland. Tubman is believed to have spent her early years at the site, where her father worked selling timber, according to Maryland Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford. Slave owner Anthony Thompson left the 10 acres of land to Ross in his will and ordered that he be freed five years after Thompson’s death in 1836, according to the Maryland Department of Transportation.
