Bud Fowler
From 1871 to 1947, African American baseball players were locked in and forced to play only those teams made up of "negroes(The Negro League)." As the all white baseball teams grew in numbers, right beside them were the developing number of all black teams. To have the necessary status of being "professional," these players had to join the all white teams in one of the major leagues. Two of the earliest players were Bud Fowler (his birth name was John Jackson), born in Cooperstown, New York in 1858 and Moses Fleetwood Walker, born in 1857 in Mount Pleasant, Ohio. Bud Fowler, by 1872, was playing on the New Castle, Pennsylvania (the Keokuk) as the only African American player. Fowler, like many of the early players, could move about and play several other team positions. He played for fourteen different teams for a career spanning twenty-five years but never was able to cross over into the National League due to his race.

Joseph Semple White
born Dec.29,1820 New Castle,Lawrence,Pa.He married Dec.1,1841 to Adaline Pollock.She was born June 20,1824
More about Joseph:
Occ: worked in grist mill,iron mill.Worked in post office with his brother-in-law until 20.Then bought part interest in a foundry.He also farmed & carried on a lumber business with his father-in-law-Dr.Joseph Pollock. His home (where Pizza Hut is now)at nw corner of Grant St. & Jefferson St. had a secret hideaway where slaves could hide-a part of the famous Underground Railroad.
More about Joseph Semple White: Our family traces back to before the creation of the city of New Castle ,PA.The land was given by the government as payment for serving in the American Revolution.On a trip to South Carolina (Where we actually wound up living) Crawford White passed through and fell in love with Pennsylvania. He was not fond of the south and its practice of slavery, so he went back to Cumberland County ,PA and laid claim to the property in New Castle. Crawford returned to New Castle and built a log home and began clearing the land. He went to Cumberland County to marry the young lady of his dreams. His brother, David married at the same time and both couples "honeymooned" by making the trip back to New Castle.David had made a similar claim for land and both brothers settled down to carve out their lives and raise their families. Both men had big families and were dedicated church goers. In sharing stories with his children, Crawford so impressed his son, Joseph Semple White, that when the time arose, Joseph became a stationmaster in the underground railroad. He brought many black people from Butler County to Lawrence County, where he lived, then drove them the next night to Mercer County on their way north.Joseph was so faithful to his beliefs that all men are created equal,as is stated in the bible, that he had a terrible disagreement with the church he belonged to. It ended up that Joseph, his wife, and children,along with several other families left the Presbyterian Church they attended and began another with beliefs in keeping with the word of God.
