Midwest / Illinois

I grew up in Buda (Bureau County), Illinois. I was told the story growing up that a Great Uncle and Aunt of mine by the names of Liberty and Thankful Stone had transported slaves on the UGRR. They are buried in the cemetery at Osceola, Illinois. I was also told that there were two stations near Buda--one about one mile west of town and the other about 1-2 miles east of town. I can identify both sites. I know of no actual documentation of this information, but if someone else knows of such documentation, I would be interested in hearing about it. My plan is to further research the situation in the near future.
