10. Story. 958 John Newlin was very involved in the movement against slavery at Spring Mtg. He was appointed by the yearly meeting to act as Quaker lobbyist to the NC General Assembly for several sessions, using his influence to secure legislation to remove some of the difficulties standing in the way of freedom or a better life for slaves. He actually "owned" many slaves at this time, because people would will their slaves to the NC Yearly Mtg with the understanding that the Quakers would work to get the slaves to free territory. While the Quakers were working to settle the slaves in a new environment, the slaves performed work to pay for their maintenance.
