Biographical Note

Benjamin S. Jones was an editor of the Anti-Slavery Bugle, an abolitionist publication of the Western Anti-Slavery Society (previously the Ohio American Anti-Slavery Society). The Anti-Slavery Bugle was published beginning June 20, 1845, until May 4, 1861, primarily in Salem, Columbiana County, Ohio. Salem was home to many Quakers, and was an active station of the Underground Railroad. The publisher of the paper was James Barnaby; the paper's motto was "No union with slaveholders." Other editors included Marius (Warren?) R. Robertson, J. Elizabeth Hitchcock, and Oliver Johnson. The paper came to include material relating to the Women's Rights Movement.
