Parting Ways Project
Cato Howe, Plato Turner, Prince Goodwin, Quamony Quash–four patriots, four stories, four young African-American men. One a free man, two former slaves, and one who fought for his country’s liberty while still enslaved. All four were veterans of the American Revolution.
The town of Plymouth granted these four patriots land near the Kingston border in an area known as Parting Ways. Howe, Turner, Goodwin, and Quash left behind a legacy. The New Guinea Settlement they founded survived into the early 20th century.
