After they married on March 18, 1869, her parents embraced her in 1874. Harriet Tubman, her mother, was recognized as a strong, caring, and political dissident during and after the American Civil War. She was also a supporter of women’s democratic rights. She was the keynote speaker at the first National Federation of Afro-American Women’s conference. Gertie Davis and Her Parents Harriet Tubman’s and Nelson Davis’s main little girl was Gertie Davis. Her mother married John Tubman; a dark free man still oppressed. She changed her name from Araminta Ross to Harriet Tubman after she married. After changing her name, Tubman began trying to free herself from slavery. After innumerable long periods of running and supporting various slaves in their runs, Tubman fell over heels with nelson Charles Davis. The latter was 22 years her junior, following the American Civil War. On March 18, 1869, they tied the bunches at the Central Presbyterian Church. Gertie was the name given to a child by the couple. Before Nelson died of illness on October 14, 1888, Gertie appears to have been the couple’s only child. Gertie Davis’s Mother Because of maltreatment while oppressed, Gertie Davis’ mother suffered excruciating agony and sickness. Harriet Tubman was mistreated by her slave owners when she was a child, and this happened all the time in many slave-owning households.

  • 4.Historians believe Tubman has a daughter Harriet Tubman’s relationship with a young lady whom she alluded to as historians have discussed her niece. She was later spotted with a bit of youngster named Margret after a trip to Auburn, New York, in 1859. Many people agreed that the young lady resembled Tubman, and antiquarians would almost always acknowledge the common firm link, even more of a mother-little girl bond. First Husband Harriet’s first husband was John Tubman, a free Black man whom she married in 1844. During that period, about half of the African Americans on Maryland’s eastern shore were free, and it was common for a family to include both free and slave members. There isn’t much information on John or his marriage to Harriet. Instead of joining Harriet on the Underground Railroad, John chose to stay in Maryland with his new wife. Second Husband Harriet married Nelson Davis, a Civil War veteran, on March 18, 1869, at that time. They met in Auburn, where she was staying. In 1874, the couple welcomed a young child girl named Gertie into their lives.
