Happy birthday, Francis Daniel Pastorius (Sept. 26, 1651 – Jan. 1720)! #Lutheran turned #Quaker. #Pacifist. Lawyer. Poet. Scholar. Teacher. Founder in 1683 of Germantown, Pennsylvania. In 1688, he drafted the first protest against slavery made by a religious group in the American colonies.

Some believe he was buried in the Geissler Burying Ground, which was later built over by St. Michael’s Episcopal Church.
