In the picture above is the actual grave of Solomon Northup's father's grave. His name was Mitus Northup. Mitus took the name of his previous owners name. Mitus was later freed when his owner passed away, so when Solomon was born he was born into freedom. Among the many interesting things about his father is the fact that he was able to vote like any other white male from that time.
