In the late 1840's and early 1850s such pioneers as Nathan Stanton, Walter S. Johnson, J. H. B. Armstrong, John Fulcher, David Green, John and Jacob Calvert, Solomon and Luther Holbrook, Daniel and John McDonald, Edward J. Gault, Seth B. Stanton and others settled in Cincinnati, Iowa. They were all men of strong convictions on moral and religious questions and were also ardent advocates of temperance and were profoundly anti-slavery. Located just north of the Missouri line, Cincinnati became a station on the Underground Railroad assisting slaves fleeing northward from servitude.
